Heather soaks away cares with seaside outing

In the wake of her marriage split actress Heather Locklear has been consoling herself with a new friendship. On a day out by the beach with American comedian David Spade and her eight-year-old daughter Ava, the Spin City star was clearly in the mood to let her hair down.

The attractive blonde - who separated from the little girl's father, Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora in February - has been enjoying cosy dinners with the comic, but insists they're not dating.

Friends say David has merely been a source of light-hearted fun at this difficult time. "They're both funny," commented one pal. "He's whip-smart; no one can deny that. And so is she."

The former Saturday Night Live regular has clearly been a key ingredient in helping the 44-year-old move on. Her face shielded from the California sun by a cowboy hat and white supersize shades, and a plastic spade in hand, Heather looked not to have a care in the world as she advised Ava on the tricky art of sandcastle building.

Her relationship woes have had Hollywood talking, not least because Richie's new love is Denise Richards, a former neighbour and close friend. On New Year's Eve the ladies were even photographed arm-in-arm on the way to a party together, but pictures of Denise on a romantic break in Italy with Heather's ex will have left question marks over their friendship.
