Heather Locklear Hits the Red Carpet With Lookalike Daughter Ava Sambora: Picture
The apple definitely doesn't fall far from Heather Locklear's tree. On Thursday, April 11, the Melrose Place actress hit the red carpet for the premiere of her new flick, Scary Movie V, at Hollywood's Arclight Cinerama Dome, where she proudly showed off 15-year-old daughter Ava Sambora -- who just happens to be the spitting image of her famous mom.
(Ava is the star's only daughter with Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora, her second ex-husband. Prior to their relationship, she was married for seven years to Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee.)
With their wavy blonde hair, glowing skin, and matching smiles, the affectionate duo looked more like sisters than mother and daughter. Locklear, 51, wowed in a nude-and-white flared frock, while her mini-me rocked a flirty printed minidress and strappy heels.
The Hot in Cleveland actress also posed on the red carpet with her Scary Movie V costar Charlie Sheen. Locklear and Sheen have an interesting history -- the Anger Management actor was previously married to Denise Richards, Locklear's former best friend. The two women had a falling out years ago, made worse when Richards, 42, started up a relationship with Richie Sambora, 53, shortly after Locklear filed for divorce from the rocker. (Richards was also newly single, having ended her marriage to Sheen around the same time.)

"I was no longer friends with Heather months before Richie and I got together," Richards told Redbook in 2008. "I don't want to say what caused the split, but she and I weren't even speaking then. It wasn't ever like we'd be shopping and go back to her house and I'd flirt with her husband."
"Yes, I got together with Heather's soon-to-be ex-husband, but no, I didn't have an affair with him," she continued. "If Heather and I had been friends at that time, I would never have crossed that line. But we weren't. The friendship was not salvageable."
