AAAWWWW! Here’s a heart-warming, only-in-Hollywood tale: As HEATHER LOCKLEAR fights to beat booze and drug abuse after being rushed to a hospital following her painful split from fiance JACK WAGNER, two surprising allies are helping her kick her habits – divorced hubby/rocker RICHIE SAMBORA, and hottie DENISE RICHARDS, the BFF Heather ditched for dating Richie.
Consider this: Richie and Denise actually split years ago – but now can help Heather because they’ve rebounded.
WHEW! Said a mutual friend: “Richie and Denise are on Team Heather again – rallying to help. Denise phones regularly now, checks up on her. All that bad blood is water under the bridge, and Heather’s even given her blessing to Denise seeing Richie.”
Heather’s in expert hands, said the friend. “Richie’s had his own drug abuse issues, and Denise dealt with notorious ex CHARLIE SHEEN for years. They both understand Heather’s problem – and really want to help."
