Locklear-Sambora Divorce Drama Ensues; Meg Ryan Opens Up
February 28, 2006

If Heather Locklear is shaken by her sudden split from Richie Sambora, you can't tell. Heather, looking hotter than ever, appeared ringless and smiling in new pictures taken near her home in Calabasas, California.

"Extra" has the all-new court papers filed by the Bon Jovi rocker. Sambora is asking for a new judge. Legal sources say Richie may be maneuvering to get a private judge to keep the case out of the public eye.

Meanwhile, Meg Ryan is making a bombshell confession to Oprah about her split from Dennis Quaid, saying, "It was a very unhealthy marriage. I probably should have left much earlier."

Ryan also goes on the record about her short-lived tabloid-soaked romance with her "Proof of Life" co-star Russell Crowe back in 2000, which launched a barrage of scandalous headlines and hurt Meg's good girl image.

"Do you think you took a bullet for something that wasn't your fault?" Oprah asked Ryan.

"Yeah, I did," Ryan responded. "And I think Russell did too."

And finally, we caught up with Jessica Simpson on a shopping spree in Santa Fe, New Mexico. But fans will see a very different Jessica in the new issue of W magazine. The starlet posed for a sultry spread, and she also opened up about her current relationship with ex Nick Lachey.

"Jessica said they're still very good friends," revealed W's Whitney McNally. "And she said that she still talks to him every other day."

Jessica's issue of W hits news stands March 17th.
