“We’re spending thanksgiving together,” Sambora confirmed to gossip blog HollyScoop.com at Sunday night’s American Music Awards. “Everything is really cool.”
Locklear, 47, and Sambora, 49, divorced in 2007, but they wanted to reunite around the table for each other and their pre-teen girl, according to a source close to the actress.
“Heather and Richie are very supportive of each other,” a pal of Locklear’s told People. “They talk all the time, and anytime Ava has something important happening they are there together. It’s going to be a very nice Thanksgiving for everyone.”
And the event will be merrier thanks to several other friends and loved ones – including Locklear’s current beau, Jack Wagner, who will be present at the table.
“Jack and a few good friends will also be having dinner with them,” the source added.
In related news, Sambora told HollyScoop that Locklear is “doing fantastic” despite her arrest on DUI charges in September and her DUI charge, filed by the Santa Barbara District Attorney’s Office, last week.
