After months of gossip headlines surrounding the Denise Richards/Richie Sambora/Heather Locklear/Charlie Sheen romantic quagmire, Denise speaks out to Entertainment Tonight.
On stealing her "best friend's" husband: "The thing with Heather, that's been hard. You can't help who you fall for and that friendship, unfortunately, was done and wasn't salvageable... People have gone on – 'Would you date your best friend['s husband]? You know, she wasn't my best friend. She was a close friend in the last couple of years. I hadn't known her my whole life [like] people [are] portraying this.... "[It's] been tough having people think that I'm such a crappy friend."
On falling for Richie: "[A relationship was] the last thing I was looking for... It's true when they say things happen when you least expect it."
On getting together with Richie after both of their marriages were over: "We didn't meddle in marriages and anything like that."
On her nasty divorce from Charlie: "Unfortunately the thing with Charlie and I – that was a court document that became public. I didn't hand it to a tabloid and say, 'Here, print this.' And it's sad, and it's horrible that it's gotten to the point that it's gotten to."
On her new outlook on life: "I was always a people pleaser and I just finally got to the point in my life after having my daughters and going through a really ugly divorce ... I've just gotten to the point where life is so short and I just want to be happy."
