Heather Locklear & Richie Sambora: Best. Thanksgiving. Ever?

November 24th, 2008 // 30 Comments

With Thanksgiving in a few days, one can’t help but focus on the things that really matter in life. Like gathering a volatile collection of relatives under the same roof and watching the crazy explode like an overcooked burrito in the microwave. People reports:

Heather Locklear and ex-husband Richie Sambora are embracing the spirit of Thanksgiving by celebrating the holiday together – along with Locklear’s boyfriend – this year.
“Richie and Heather are spending Thanksgiving together with [daughter] Ava,” a friend of Locklear’s tells PEOPLE. “Jack [Wagner] and a few good friends will also be having dinner with them.”
Locklear, 47, and Sambora, 49, split in 2006 after 12 years of marriage, but they continue to be supportive of each other, and to co-parent their 11 year old daughter.

Fantastic. Heather, you’ll remember, was popped for DUI in September, barely two months after she completed a rehab stay. Richie, meanwhile, loves their daughter Ava so much that he was arrested for driving drunk with her in the car in March. Plus, he’s in Bon Jovi, which is just completely fucked up. But somehow the two of them spending Thanksgiving together is going to result in something besides Ava crawling under the table while her mom and dad whip bottles of gin at each other. No, really, it’s like a holiday special waiting to be made.

    They never said life would be easy and here Heather and Richie are making the best out of a situation long gone bad for the love of their life, their daughter.

    Kudos to both parents for being just that.

  6. Hey, it’s called being progressive, and it’s in the kids’ best interests, numbnuts.

    Last year, we celebrated Thanksgiving with my rapist, so my daughter could get to know her dad. It worked out wonderfully. I passed out and my daughter developed a UTI the next week, but I think the rapist had fun and anyway we had plenty of cranberry juice so my daughter was fine after awhile.

    You know Denise Richards is just churning and burning about this. Guess her master plan to keep them apart isn’t working. Even if they are just friends!Good for them, way to go Richie and Heather.

    It all ain’t as bad as Tim & Elaine. They signed a 12 month lease on a building but weren’t thinking about the economy. Now they have too much Halloween stuff and no customers…
