Richie Sambora Enters Treatment Facility

I've told you before that I'm a huge Bon Jovi fan. Ever since I heard You Give Love a Bad Name (I think I was in the 7th grade) I wanted to have "blood-red nails on my finger tips." So it makes me extremely sad to report that my boy, and Jon's right-hand-man, Richie Sambora, has entered "an undisclosed treatment facility in Los Angeles," according to his rep and People magazine. The nature of Richie's problem has not been released, but the man has had it rough over the last few months. "Richie has had a terrible year," a close friend tells the mag. "I think this was a culmination of all these things and finally he realized he needed to take care of himself. He'd put off everything for so long taking care of everyone else it was just time to stop and deal with his issues." Richie had to deal with his divorce from Heather Locklear, a high-profile relationship, then breakup, with Denise Richards, and most heartbreaking, the loss of his dad to lung cancer. So maybe that explains his major meltdown on the set of MTV Unplugged earlier this week. Get better Richie. This New Jersey girl looks forward to seeing you, cowboy hat and all, back in the saddle at Giants Stadium soon!
