Late Thursday night, news broke that actress Heather Locklear was taken to the hospital, reportedly after taking a nasty mix of prescription drugs and alcohol. The blonde beauty, who has struggled with addiction in the past, was taken by ambulance after a 911 call was made from her home.
To get the latest details on the story, here’s the breakdown from all angles on how the 50-year-old Locklear wound up in the hospital, how long she might be there, and what she has been doing over recent months:
What Happened: TMZ first broke the story that Heather was hospitalized after a 911 call made by her sister. News later came out that she was rushed to the hospital due to a mixture of pills and alcohol. RadarOnline reports that Locklear’s sister “was worried about Heather’s state of mind and they were afraid she was going to harm herself.” The call was made around 2:30pm California time.
How Is She Now?: In a statement issued by Heather’s parents, the Melrose Place starlet currently “is in no danger and she’s going to be just fine,” Bill and Diane Locklear said. The hospital listed her as “medically stable.”
When Will She Be Out? There’s no word on when Heather might be released, and that will all depend on her health, mindstate and if she is currently suffering from addiction or if this was just a rogue episode. More details should be emerging shortly, but an MSNBC report claims that Locklear will only be staying overnight for observation.
What Has Heather Been Doing Lately? Just two days before her hospitalization, Heather was sitting courtside at the Los Angeles Lakers game, where she was seen rooting on the team and looking very animated.
Is She Dating Anyone? No, she’s not. In November, she called off her engagement to Jack Wagner, who she was dating for nearly four years. The couple got engaged in August of 2011, and three months later, they went their separate ways.
Does Heather Have Past Drug Issues? Well, that depends. In 2008 her doctor called 911 after fearing she downed prescription medication in an attempt to commit suicide. In the end, though, it was all deemed a false alarm.
