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.

With the number of suicides lately, I hope she gets the help she needs.

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.

Jussie Smollett Scenes Cut From ‘Empire’ In Lieu Of Attack Investigation

As of Tuesday, the production of Fox’s hit series, Empire has slashed Jussie Smollett’s upcoming scenes following reports that the suspicion is now on him for allegedly staging the “hate” attack he reported to the Chicago PD back on January 29th.

According to production sources viaTMZ: Jussie was supposed to have nine scenes and a big musical performance in the second-to-last episode of Season 5,  Now, five scenes and the musical number have been axed.  Smollett’s character is also no longer the focus of his remaining four scenes, which will now feature an ensemble of characters.

The actor/singer who portrays Jamal Lyon will be working Friday and possibly Thursday but won’t be rehearsing.

The Empire writers are said to have been scrambling over the last 24 hours to revise this season’s scripts.

All of this despite despite strongly expressed renewed support by Empire showrunner Brett Mahoney on February 17th.  The goal now is said to be to reduce Smollett’s role both in dramatic stints and musical performances.

Empire returns for the remainder of its fifth season on March 13.

Smollett claims he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack near his Chicago apartment, but things took a turn when he may have paid two friends to help stage the assault.

This case is said to be going before a Grand Jury as early as today.

What are your thoughts on the latest developments in the Smollett case and Empire reducing his appearances for the remainder of the season? Comment below.

TODAY: Y&R’s Melody Thomas Scott Visits ‘The Talk’ As Her 40th Anniversary Week As Nikki Newman Kicks-Off

On today’s broadcast of the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, the ladies welcome Y&R icon, Melody Thomas Scott, who this week celebrates her incredible 40th anniversary with the show as Nikki Newman.

During her segment, Melody chats on Wednesday’s upcoming standalone episode where Nikki is in jail reflecting on her life.  Wednesday is also the exact date of Thomas Scott’s 40th anniversary with the CBS Daytime drama series.

During the segment Melody fills the ladies in on the “All About Nikki” episode, as she relates:  “I was so thrilled that they did this. It’s truly, really the life of Nikki in the entirety of the episode. It’s all about Nikki. And she’s in jail. She’s writing a letter to her grandchildren so that she can explain who she really is, how she got to where she is.  I have to narrate it, I’ve got a voice-over, a long voice-over. And then, as I’m thinking about all these different times in my life, I can’t believe I’m referring to me as her, her life, then we see the flashbacks. And for the longtime viewers, even current viewers, it is such a trip down memory lane. I mean, you are on that train and you’re not getting off…all of the clips have not been seen since they were first aired.”

In addition, Melody addresses the passing of her longtime co-star and friend, Kristoff St. John relating:  “I adored him. We all adored him. There was something very unique and magical about him. He would just draw you into his wonderful world. And all of his bear hugs, I can’t believe I’ll never get a bear hug. Going to any kind of event, any party, the first thing I said when I got there was ‘Where’s Kristoff?’ I want to find Kristoff, I want to be with him, I want to be in his air space. Because that’s the kind of guy he was, and I think that came through on camera. I think everybody sensed that, I mean everybody adored him.”

So, will you be checking out Melody on today’s episode of The Talk (2PMEST and 1PM PST) today? Comment below.
