Denise Richards Loses That Man She Stole

It's a good day to be Heather Locklear. Denise Richards, who took up with her (ex-) best friend's ex-husband before the ink was dry on the divorce papers, has officially split from rocker Richie Sambora. Richards' rep confirms that "Denise and Richie broke up two months ago." According to a friend of Richards (she has friends?), "They didn't want to make it public because they lived through public divorces and it was very painful."

Um, very painful for whom? Very painful to the spouses you dumped five minutes before you jumped into each other's pants?

The couple reportedly still remain friends, with Denise even flying across the country to attend a funeral for Richie's father, who died of cancer on April 20. "She took the next flight -- a red eye -- to be with him," says Denise's friend (these friends must not have husbands).
