Charlie Sheen Apologizes to Richie Sambora
November 3, 2006

For the first time, Charlie Sheen is going on the record about his soon-to-be ex-wife Denise Richards, and he’s spilling all to talk show queen Ellen DeGeneres.

During the chat-fest, Charlie addresses his ex’s romance with rocker Richie Sambora.

“Well, at least I knew the guy that she wound up with,” Charlie joked. “Sorry Richie!”

Also during the interview, which airs on Monday’s Ellen, Charlie gives Richie his blessing.

“To know that there is somebody decent, smart and a good parent that’s going to be around your children, that’s a good thing,” Charlie admitted.

As for their bitter split, the “Two and a Half Men” star explained why he and Denise recently patched things up.

“We’re trying to put all that nonsense aside, and just do what’s right for the children,” he said. “And be good, responsible parents.”

As Charlie spoke out to Ellen, “Extra” spotted Richie’s ex, Heather Locklear, showing some skin and showing off her on and off boyfriend, David Spade, marking their first public appearance together since August.
