According to Denise Richards, you can't help who you fall for.

"You can't help who you fall for," said Richards about her romance with Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora.

Denise Richards and Daughters

In a two-part interview with Entertainment Tonight, which airs tonight and tomorrow, the 35-year old actress speaks candidly but emotionally about a very complicated love life. In January, she filed for divorce from Charlie Sheen. Again.

Then, in April, she filed court papers accusing him of being abusive and addicted to drugs, gambling and teen porn.


It gets better. Last week, a judge extended an existing restraining order against Sheen, requiring the dirtbag to stay at least 300 yards away from Richards. The couple have two daughters, Lola, 1, and Sam, 2.

Shortly after filing these papers, Richards began being linked to Sambora, who is in the middle of his own divorce with Heather Locklear. Richie and Heather have one daughter, eight-year old Ava. Further complicating matters is the fact that the couples were neighbors and friends.

"It's not good, but it is what it is. The four of us were friends, so it's not just odd for her. Charlie knew Richie, but it's always the women who get the brunt of it," said Richards, who said her relationship with Heather is irreparable, and railed against the media for its obsession with her and Locklear.

Yes, we said railed. About Denise Richards.

Poor Denise has enjoyed a reprieve from front-page news in recent weeks, what with Shiloh and all. And Sean Preston. What cuties.

Denise Richards Quotes

I admit I have a weakness for guys that have dark hair and are passionate in bed. What's wrong with that?

Denise Richards

If I have my kids on my show, I'm exploiting them. If I don't, people will think I'm not a hands on mom – That's why it's very important to me that the girls are part of it.
