If for some reason you doubted they were a couple again, we can assure you Denise Richards and Richie Sambora are totally back together.

The two hit their first red carpet tonight in Beverly Hills!

Read on to find out what went down with these two lovebirds...

Richards was on Sambora's arm this evening when he was honored at the Midnight Mission's Golden Heart Awards at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. The Midnight Mission is a support and advocacy group for the homeless in Los Angeles.

The former E! reality star looked fab in gold lamé mini dress and red heels. Her hair was up and she was glowing with glittery eye makeup.

The two first dated when Richards, 41, split from Charlie Sheen, about the same time the 52-year-old rocker called it quits with his Melrose Place wife, Heather Locklear.

Richards told me with a big smile, "This is a big night for Richie, so I'm here to support him. It's really important work that he does."

Sambora beamed, "We're back on. It's all good."

The other gal with Sambora? His and Heather Locklear's gorgeous 14-year-old daughter, Ava.

And don't think I didn't talk to Richards about working with Sheen on Anger Management. I'll have all that for you tomorrow!
