"We aren't dating, but as a lot of people have seen, I stay very friendly with my exes. All of them," the actress and mother-of-three said on The Talk Tuesday. (Indeed, Richards and her ex-husband, Charlie Sheen, often go on family vacations together, and the Anger Management actor, 46, recently told Rolling Stone he still fantasizes about having sex with Richards.)
According to Richards, 41, she and Sambora, 52, will remain "friends" despite their split.
Richards and Sambora rekindled their romance in November 2011. The pair first dated from 2006-2007 after splitting from their respective spouses. Girl Next Door author Richards was accused of "stealing" Sambora from Heather Locklear, 50, but assured Us Weekly she "[dated] a former friend's husband, [but did not] break up a marriage."
