She dated Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora for roughly a year after her split with Sheen.
Richie Sambora hit the red carpet at Keep A Child Alive’s 8th annual Black Ball gala in New York City on Thursday night, and while the Bon Jovi rocker is serious about philanthropy and supporting the AIDS cause, he was all smiles when it came to that question about dating – once again — Denise Richards.
Fortunately, the first step was not really difficult to be commenced as she quickly earned a one-time appearance in an episode of ABC's drama series "Life Goes On" in 1990 followed by a handful of others in "Saved by the Bell" by 1991, "Beverly Hills, 90210" in 1992, and "Seinfeld" by 1993, the year which also saw her carrying out her film debut in "Loaded Weapon 1." Kept undergoing such roles as well as showing up on several TV-movies, the striking brunette's status suddenly rose quite increasingly in 1997 when her sci-fi flick entitled "Starship Troopers" surprisingly scored over 54 million U.
Though she considered her role "brainy", "athletic", and having depth of character, although, Richards was also nominated for the Blockbuster Entertainment Award for Favourite Actress – Action, for the same film.
Denise Richards began her illustrious modeling career at the tender age of 19, shortly after graduating from high school in Oceanside, California.
Originally from Downers Grove, Illinois, her family moved there when Richards was just 15 years old.
Patrick and Denise also dated each other in the past.
Though they are no longer together, they can still heat it up for the small screen.
