DEALING WITH IT
Heather Locklear indulges in some retail therapy at a Thousand Oaks, Calif., shopping mall Tuesday. The actress – whose estranged husband Richie Sambora has been hooking up with her pal Denise Richards – "doesn't want 'Team Heather' T-shirts," a close friend of Locklear's tells PEOPLE. "She just wants to move on."
Meanwhile, less than three miles away, Denise Richards picks up 2-year-old daughter Sam from her Westlake preschool. "The thing that's getting me through all of this is my daughters," Richards (who is divorcing Charlie Sheen) tells PEOPLE. "Just staying focused on them."
