Go away, Bobby Bandiera! We want our Richie back. Bon Jovi can't make it without this soulful talent of a person, he contributes to the Jovi sound & excitement. It is beyond horrible to see Jon without Richie. Pray, pray, praying for you to get your act together, Sambora.

I feel for Ritchie. I know he lost his father to lung cancer recently, and a divorce, and then a breakup. Give him a break, until you walk in his shoes, shut the f%#! up. I'm praying for you Ritchie...

I am glad that richie is getting help. I am sad that this has happened. He really has been through so much. Yes, shame on him for the Denise thing. She's a slut! In case anyone did not know Richie recently lost his father to a long battle of Cancer. Watching your father suffer like that is enough to make anyone drink. Give the guy a break. He messed up! He's only human!

As far as people passing judgment in ALL their Perfection..... Shame on all of you unless Mr. Sambora has contacted you directly and told you why he is in rehab you shouldnt make any assumptions, ANNND whats up with the 20 somethings ripping on his weight?Lets see where your weight is at45. If for no other reason than this man has a 9 year old Daughter that can read and for people who dont know him to say hateful almost rejoicing in his personal pain kind of things I would hope it would end if you considered ava for one minute!!!And if you still dont get it in the end he will still get help still have his FANS still be gettin HOT chicks and taking his Money to the bank In wheelbarrels!!!true dat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
