Heather Locklear Sent To Hospital For Psych Evaluation After Threatening To Harm Herself

Former Dynasty and Melrose Place star, Heather Locklear is back in the news Monday morning with another troubling report from TMZ.com.

Reportedly, Locklear was hospitalized in Thousand Oaks, California on Sunday.  Her mother called 911 claiming the actress was threatening to kill herself, and acting erratically.

In the dispatch audio call that was made public by TMZ, it seemed that her mother claimed that Locklear was “agitated and violent.”  She also added that Heather was, “trying to hurt herself and looking for a gun to shoot herself, even though she does not have access to any weapons.”

Both the Ventura Country Fire and Sheriff’s Department were dispatched to Locklear’s home.

A source close to Heather reportedly said that the actress was agitated during the day, so her parents went over to her home to check on her. According to the report, that’s when Locklear got violent, choking her mother and hitting her father.

Locklear was arrested months ago on a felony charge for domestic violence and three counts of misdemeanor battery on a police officer following a domestic dispute with her boyfriend.  The domestic abuse charges were dropped in March. Locklear was in rehab in April, while her attorneys pleaded not guilty to battery on her behalf.

Back in 2008, there was a report that Locklear was also suicidal. The Melrose Place and Dynasty star has had a history of substance abuse.

So, what do you think of the latest troubles for Heather? Comment below.

Very sad. I seems to be the older actors are in the news for this type of problem lately (Windsor Harmon). I hope she gets the help she needs.

What’s to think? Heather needs to figure out how to maintain sobriety from whatever substance(s) she takes. Getting sober is easy, staying sober will stop all of this nonsense. I hope she finds the courage to do so.

Figured she had lost her mind a couple years back when she was shilling for the Orange Imbecile. What a damned shame…. Heather was a great poster girl for sin back in the day. All of us down here in Hell appreciated her past efforts.

Nah, Hell is red! Though the yellow sulfur in the air might make it appear orange in a few locations.

Self worth has to be based on more important things than looks, in both cases looks are fading as is self esteem.

I’ve always been a fan of Heather Locklear’s and I hope that she finds the help that she needs. Depression, substance abuse, mental illness, are all very serious issues and cannot just be swept under the rug. She has a beautiful daughter who must be absolutely heartbroken for her mother. From articles that I have read, it sounds as though Heather has not been surrounding herself with the healthiest individuals. I just don’t understand it.

I thought about her daughter also.

@dmr…I always liked Heather, too…Despite her early rise to fame, she seemed to have a mind of her own and an independent spirit instead of simply parroting the same old, same old cliche’ tripe, which is such a rare thing in Hollywood!!! So refreshing! That probably didn’t help her career, especially in later years, but still what a sad state to which she has now sunk….when it gets to the point that one is even attacking their own parents, then help is indeed needed ASAP. Like you, I never really got her odd taste in men, save for Jack Wagner, who, by the way, just sent his love and prayers to her, which I thought was a truly decent, gentlemanly gesture given their stormy history. Hope she can finally find some inner peace and work her way out of the monumental mess her life has become.

It’s so sad, and she was just arrested, again, after she was released from the required medical “hold.” I have always been such a fan of hers. I always thought that she was beautiful and talented-still do. Hollywood/Los Angeles must really play with people’s minds. I often think, why not up and leave after making it big, and live a nice, secluded life somewhere and enjoy your wealth? I know it’s easier said than done, and coming from someone who hasn’t experienced the Hollywood lifestyle/microscope. I know that I would not be able to live under that scrutiny. As a fan of Heather’s, I hope that she gets the help that she needs. It’s so sad-most of all for her daughter and family.

Shay

Yes, I just read the same, dmr….very tragic! This Is so much more than simple substance abuse gone to the extreme…to continually attack loved ones indicates a serious, underlying psychoses that drugs and alcohol only further fuel…I really do pray that Heather will finally get some much needed, comprehensive medical attention for not just her addictive behaviors, but her control issues, as well, because it seems as though time is running out for her to get it together. Either she or someone else will be bodily harmed if this keeps up….perhaps irreparably. Once that happens, may she find the strength to abandon Hollywood and its dangers that have become life-threatening for her in hopes that she can lead a healthy, more balanced lifestyle.

I’m sure her being an aging starlet/sex symbol has only aggravated whatever else she deals with mentally. It’s hard to see yourself fade from the limelight. Sorry for her.

This is really sad. Attacked her parents that were trying to help her, after she’s already been arrested for domestic violence. I hope she can get the help she needs.

I’ve noticed after she stopped getting work all of the substance abuse and violence started.

Believe me I know what depression feels like so I do hope she gets the help she needs .This illness is not easy to live with,

It’s excruciating. Unless someone experiences it, they do not understand the magnitude of it.

You are so right.I just lost my mom and my depression and anxieties have been just plan awful. I do take meds but it can be so hard, Sorry you have to deal with this,

dmr

Carol, sorry to hear about your mom, and that you are going through such a hard time. I have dealt with this my entire life. A few things that have helped me are exercise, music, and cooking-anything positive and healthy that I can do to keep my body and mind active. I always need to feel productive, and those activities have helped me immensely. Loss and grief can feel unbearable at times. Anxiety, like depression, is something most people do not understand unless they’ve experienced it. It’s not a feeling of being excited or nervous. It’s a constant state of agitation and worry that is so unsettling, and it “works” in-tandem with depression. It feels so unbearable. Best of luck to you.

Carol

Emmy Winner and Noted Soap Opera Head Writer; Hogan Sheffer Passes Away At 61

Over the last several hours, reports have broke that one of daytime’s most notable scribes has died.  Hogan Sheffer, who was head writer at As the World Turns, Days of our Lives and The Young and the Restless has passed away at the age of 61.

Soap Hub, first reported the news via multiple sources, however, many writers who worked with Hogan during his tenure on the soaps have taken to social media to share their condolences and their grief and remembrances.

Sheffer’s appearance on the soap scene was unexpected, especially in a genre where it is often rare for new blood to take the reins at the head writer position.  Proctor & Gamble had decided to bring in Hogan after his work as the Director of Screenplay Development for DreamWorks, not because of his writing credits for a previous network soap.  He was given trial deal as a breakdown writer for the CBS soap and 10-weeks in became the beloved town of Oakdale’s new head writer.

Hogan and his then writing team were able to turn the classic, As the World Turns around.  The show went up in the ratings and during his time with the series ‘World Turn’s’ won two Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series, and he and the writing team picked up four Emmy victories all through 2000-2004.

Next, Sheffer landed in Salem as head writer of Days of our Lives along with Meg Kelly from 2006 through to the beginning of 2008.   He would later join The Young and the Restless and team up with then head writers: Maria Arena Bell and Scott Hamner, and eventually stay with the show till 2012.  During Sheffer’s time in Genoa City, Y&R also won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Writing in 2011.

On Sunday, former WWE and daytime writer Tom Casiello, who was extremely close with Sheffer…  and who shared how Hogan gave him his start at writing in daytime, took to his Facebook page to pay tribute to a man who had such an impact on his life and many others.  It is worth the read here. 

Y&R writer, Sara Bibel tweeted: “Hogan Sheffer was a gamechanger for ATWT and daytime. Everyone I know who worked with him adored him. RIP”

And, iconic ATWT star, Martha Byrne (Ex-Lily) tweeted on Sheffer’s passing: “To say he was one of a kind would be a tremendous understatement. Our years at ATWT with Hogan at the helm were a rebirth for our beautiful show. Loved his writers, actors,crew. Blessed to have him on the first floor in Brooklyn ready to listen. Talented. Funny. Generous. RIP”

Colleen Zenk (Ex-Barbara, ATWT) also took to Twitter upon learning of the passing of Sheffer sharing: “I loved him, loved him, loved him… he was so good to me. Thank you for everything, Hogan. You were so loved. Especially, by me… Rest in peace…”
