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!

Richie has had a very bad year. People handle difficult situations in their lives differently because of stress. Stress is a killer alone. Drinking, bulimia, drugs, etc...losing someone in your life, in his case his wife and his father can really take a tremendous stressful toll on one's system. You children that do not understand adult crisis' will one day. Your turn will come. Richie is NOT fat or ugly. Alcoholics gain fluid all over the body when they are drinking - it effects all of your internal organs the longer you drink. It is called ascites, look it up. Many a rocker has gone through detox and YES it can be done in a week in the right place with the right medical help. I know, my Mom was an alcoholic and I saw her through it many times - in her case it was usually 3 days!!!
Richie Sambora and Bon Jovi are one of the best rock bands in history and they are ALL still together unlike many other one hit wonders of the rock world. I don't have to defend him his guitar playing proves it.
