Former friends Heather Locklear and Denise Richards are set to go head-to-head as they battle for a primetime TV slot for their new shows this autumn (06). Richards, 35, and Locklear, 44, fell out earlier this year (06) - soon after they split from their respective husbands Charlie Sheen, 40, and rocker Richie Sambora, 46. In April (06), the former Bond girl was photographed kissing the Bon Jovi guitarist, leading to speculation their relationship caused the end of her friendship with Locklear. Richards and Locklear are currently filming TV pilots of US TV network ABC, entitled SECRETS OF A SMALL TOWN and WOMEN OF A CERTAIN AGE, which are both angling for the same spot in the network's schedule this year (06). However, an ABC insider tells British magazine OK!, "The pilots were screened in the first week of May. No one was too jazzed about Denise's show, but Heather's looks to be a hit."
