As you’ve probably heard, Heather Locklear was arrested yesterday for (allegedly) driving under the influence. No, she didn’t have too many delicious Maker’s Mark Manhattans. Instead, she apparently chose to go the nutritious and crunchy prescription drug route. She was arrested, then released without having to post bail.
If this were anyone other than a 47-year-old mother of small children, I would think this was funny. I mean, look at her pupils! However, she is a 47-year-old mother so the fun factor is like, somewhere in the neighborhood of zero and -24. As we reported back in June, Heather was released from a rehab facility in Arizona, where she was treated for “depression” and “anxiety”.
Rather recently, Richie Sambora, her ex-husband (and Denise Richards’ ex-fling), was caught driving under the influence with their two children in the car. We at MavrixOnline hope that Heather and Richie recover from whatever it is that is troubling them, for their kids’ sake if nothing else. Both are extremely talented individuals, and it’s a pity to see them behave this way.
Following the leaked 911 call in March, where she said she was suicidal, Heather Locklear seemed to be doing okay. Apparently, the actress isn’t well after all, as she has reportedly checked herself into a psych hospital in Arizona.
Heather’s rep told PEOPLE “Heather has been dealing with anxiety and depression. She requested an in-depth evaluation of her medication and entered into a medical facility for proper diagnosis and treatment.”
Bummer. We hope she gets better soon!
The beautiful Heather Locklear and a friend stopped in at The Ivy today for lunch. The “Melrose Place” alum was dressed in all black and accessorized her look with a red Chanel handbag.
Locklear has been dating fellow “Melrose Place” alum Jack Wagner for nearly a year now and it’s reported she recently turned down a marriage proposal because she isn’t ready to get married so soon after her split from rocker Richie Sambora.
