Poor Richie Had No Clue

Heather Locklear filed for divorce, but her poor husband had no clue. Maybe this is why she is leaving him. Was he never around? So much so that she had to get his attention by filing legal documents. ABC News report:

More than an hour after Locklear's publicist spread the word that their 11-year-marriage was kaput, the Bon Jovi guitarist told ABC News Radio in an exclusive interview that things were fine at home.

"It's completely untrue," he insisted, adding that he had Valentine's Day plans with his wife.

Nevertheless, the "Spin City" actress had already set the legal wheels in motion, and her spokeswoman, CeCe York, was spreading the word.

"After 10 years of marriage, Heather Locklear has filed for divorce from Richie Sambora," the rep said in a statement hours earlier. "This is a private matter and there will be no further comment at this time."

The message was apparently not delivered to the rocker, who has been touring recently, and he spoke with ABC shortly before a show at Washington's MCI Center.

Even when confronted with the report, which had then hit the news wires, he spoke lovingly of Locklear.

"I'm going home," said Sambora, who says that Locklear sometimes joins him when he's touring.

"Heather was just up for our anniversary and that was Dec. 15 … I was home for like two and a half weeks over Christmas, and I have a month off in March, so it's going to be good."

Maybe the two can try to work it out on his month off. We'd hate to see another celebrity spit. Jeez, it's only February 3rd and there have been too many already.
