Sadly, Sambora – guitarist in stupid-haired stadium fool band Bon Jovi – and Locklear – an actress who seems to join the cast of American sitcoms with the express intention of killing them stone dead – are to get a divorce after 11 years of superficially happy marriage.
Sometimes, a bit of foresight doesn’t go amiss when things aren’t going
great in your marriage. Rumours have been circulating for more than a
year about the patchy state of the marriage between Heather Locklear
and Richie Sambora (CDs), but they just kept fronting it out, even as
recently as December. back then, Locklear gave a statement to the New
York Daily News saying:
"The real story is that there is no story. The truth is that after 11 years, we are still happily married. Boring but true."
The bloody fibber – she’s just filed for divorce from plane-crash survivor
Sambora, citing – as ever – irreconcilable differences. And she wants
the pre-nup to kick in, too. But wait! This is a celebrity divorce –
where’s the vague rep statement asking for privacy? Oh, here it is:
"This is a private matter and there will be no further comment at this time."
for that, CeCe York. Although, to people in the know, the Heather
Locklear/ Richie Sambora divorce didn’t come as a surprise. According
to gossip pages, the couple grew apart in 2004 after Locklear spent
time on the rubbish ‘thank God it never came to England’ airport sitcom
LAX. And last December, unnamed Sambora insiders complained that
"24-hour-a-day [butt] kissing … If Richie divorced her, nobody would be heartbroken."
And now they’re divorcing. And nobody is heartbroken. Not us, anyway. How’s that for foresight?
