Richie Sambora -- "It's All About Me"

6/19/2007 2:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Click to return to TMZ.comApparently, Richie Sambora doesn't have such a big problem with drugs or alcohol that it couldn't be cured by a simple week of detox and therapy! The rocker and the rest of Bon Jovi were performing on "Today" this morning when Matt Lauer asked Richie about his recent Lohanesque trip to treatment, with Sambora revealing, "I did detox." No biggie!

The band rocked the "Today" stage and gave middle-aged women all over America something to brighten their morning. Richie's stay at rehab, er detox, was so brief that most of these fans probably hadn't even heard the news, or that he's busted up with Denise Richards.

From rock group to support group -- and back in a flash!

"I believe David Bryan suffered the exact same loss's and I don't seem him acting like a Big Ole Dumb Ass. GROW UP RICHIE!!!!!! Get off your soap box and be real for just one minute."

I don't see how you can even compare the two situations really. Dave lost his Dad in 2003. He had 2 years to deal with it before his divorce, and basically, nobody really cared so he wasn't hounded.

Richie had about 4 months between his wife filing for divorce (which he obviously didn't want in the first place), finding out his Dad was dying (while he's on the other side of the world), breaking his arm - and having to get up on stage and perform every night in dire pain, and on top of all that, he had to put up with all the trash in the mags.

I think him losing himself for a little while there is pretty understandable.

He's old and fat and plays with a has-been band....and attracts riff-raff groupie chicks. Karl is right. Who cares?

I commend him for being blunt about detoxing.

Whatareyoudoing?    

That's why you fell down and bumped your damn head and went out with your wife's friend. After Denise Richards hosed you, it don't matter WTF you drank or smoked. You're tainted Richie! Get to an exorcist and get that skanks cooties off ya.

....and, yes, Lulu, I am a Paris fan. She is cute, talented and 99% more lucky in life than you are....and, besides, the billionaire Starvos Miarkos flew from Greece to offer his support. She should only be Jewish she is so blessed.
