Denise and Richie's Battle Against Cancer

Celebrity couple Denise Richards and her boyfriend of 10 months, Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora, are sharing a secret and painful battle: each star has a parent that is currently fighting cancer.

“My mother has cancer and Richie’s father has cancer,” Denise told People magazine at Tuesday night’s GM Ten fashion show, held at Paramount Studios in L.A. “It’s hard. Thank God Richie and I have each other not only to go through divorce, but to go through both our parents being ill.”

Richard’s 4-year marriage to “Two and a Half Men” star Charlie Sheen officially ended in November, while Sambora split from blonde bombshell, and Denise’s best friend, Heather Locklear last year.

While the coupe has remained mum on their love, Richie dished this to “Extra” in November, “Obviously we’re doing very well right now”

Bon Jovi defends Sambora's gal

Bon Jovi defends Sambora's gal

"That's horses---," said Jon Bon Jovi yesterday, dismissing a New York Daily News report that he doesn't want Denise Richards around. The actress dates Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora and has accompanied Sambora to a number of overseas gigs with the band. Bon Jovi, the guy, not the band, strolled through the Daily News offices yesterday, and we took the opportunity to get his reaction to Ben Widdicombe's NYDN item. "She's great. I'm gonna be staying with them in California this weekend," Bon Jovi said. He's had time to get used to Sambora's famous mates. The guitarist was married to Heather Locklear, until just before he started dating Richards, who was formerly a friend of Locklear's.

Bon Jovi needs free of Denise Richards

Jon Bon Jovi's dispute with Denise Richards hit a new low.

As Digital Spy reports Richards is dating Bon Jovi's bandmate Richie Sambora and reports are now suggesting that the singer wants her banned from coming on tour with the band.

A spokesman for the musician denied the statements, and seems adamant that they are "not true", but an inside source claims the situation became almost intolerable for the band dynamic and the guitarist's place in the group is consequently under threat.

Richards was with Richie since her divorce from ex-husband Charlie Sheen.

Rocker JON BON JOVI has slammed reports he is unhappy with bandmate RICHIE SAMBORA for dating actress DENISE RICHARDS - because she takes attention away from their music.
Sambora and Richards started dating in April 2006 after the rocker separated from actress HEATHER LOCKLEAR and Richards separated from CHARLIE SHEEN.
A source tells the New York Daily News, "Jon does not like Denise. She's distracting.
"There's too much media attention when Denise is around, and Jon thinks she's really annoying and doesn't like when Richie's around her."
But a representative for the singer slams the rumours he doesn't like Richards, calling the reports, "Not true."
The WILD THINGS star caused a media storm when she visited the band in Dublin, Ireland during their last tour and the couple are regular targets of the tabloid media.

So the big news is that Denise Richards was caught doing cocaine on the beach and these are the pictures of the incident. Please!!! Anyone who has ever done or seen cocaine in their life knows that it doesn’t come in a bottle of sunscreen (yes on the table next to her) and is not that texture. Besides, if there was coke in the vicinity, don’t you think Sambora, in true rock star fashion, would be doing it off her bare breasts? I rest my case.

@ Maui beach

Man-stealing publicity whore Denise Richards gave a little lip (of the vaginal variety) yesterday when photogs caught up with her and beau Richie Sambora absorbing some cancer rays on the shores of Maui.
Question: What's flabbier: Richie's gut or Denise's Hot Pocket?

Romantic Hawaiian vacation

Cheatin', lyin', no good couple Denise Richards and a painfully sunburned Richie Sambora put on quite a show for the paparazzi yesterday when they were spotted frolicking on the shores of Maui on day two of their romantic Hawaiian vacation.This is, of course, the exact same group of photogs who were victim to Denise's violent rage last year when the 35-year-old actress hurled a laptop over a balcony, injuring two elderly ladies.


While Denise Richards has the shake, Richie Sambora has the bake.
An amazing bikini-clad Denise and her lobster-red boyfriend Richie Sambora sprinted on the beaches of Honolulu yesterday, although it looks like Sambora's having a little trouble jogging with that burn.

Hey Richie, it's called "sunblock."

Grammy nominations cap off stellar year for Nova Scotia's Gordie Sampson

A recent collaboration with Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora may land on a country-tinged Bon Jovi album.
"Bon Jovi is probably the biggest guilty pleasure in the world, everybody's a fan kind of in a way. They're enigmas, they're legends," says Sampson."I was actually quite nervous writing with them because it was just a bit surreal but they turned out to be...incredibly great guys."

After wrapping her comedy Blonde and Blonder, Denise Richards takes a refreshing plunge with main man Richie Sambora during a Hawaiian getaway in Maui on Tuesday.


With his girlfriend sporting a sexy bikini top and skintight Bambi shorts, Richie Sambora was all smiles as he took Denise on a romantic stroll down the Hawaiian coastline yesterday.

If the past is a sign of things to come, wedding bells might be in store for the happy couple. Denise got engaged to Charlie Sheen following a Hawaiian getaway in 2002 ... then again, we know how that ended.

Love was clearly in the air (or perhaps on the shores) as photogs snapped shots of controversial couple Denise Richards and rocker Richie Sambora getting their cute on while on the shores of Maui.

Denise just wrapped up filming 'Blonde and Blonder' in Canada with Pamela Anderson and is reportedly now looking forward to spending endless hours smearing sunscreen on Richie's expansive gut.
