Y&R head writer Sally Sussman continues to mine from the history of the iconic CBS daytime drama series.

News today out of Soap Opera Digest has none other than Marla Adams returning as the Abbott Matriarch, Dina Mergeron.

Adams last appeared on The Young and the Restless back in 2008, where she played Dina for many years, who is mother to Jack (Peter Bergman), Traci (Beth Maitland), and Ashley (Eileen Davidson).

Marla’s return visit will begin on the May 3rd episode, just in time for May Sweeps. Could Dina’s re-emergence on the canvas finally reveal to all that the late John Abbott (Jerry Douglas) is not Ashley’s bio-dad?  Let’s hope so! It’s time to let everyone in GC know!

So, what do you think of Dina Mergeron returning to the canvas? Will she drop a bombshell? Comment below!

Love that Marla is returning…Thank you Sally and Kay for bringing back Y&R to the way it should be…

I remember Marla from years ago on The Secret Storm as Belle. She was great on there, and still is.

Wonderful news, I love Marla Adams as Dina Mergeron Abbott. Sign Marla to a contract, she can have scenes with Gloria and Jill.

Celia
Celia

I am just glad to see “Dina”….. love her. It matters not to me whether she fires a bombshell or not. Will it really matter?
What I anticipate are the cat fights—-imagine, the female Triumvirate: Dina, Gloria and Jill. At each other’s throats??

On another note…I have a sneaking suspicion Cane will cheat on Lily with ‘that’ woman.
Also, it is kind of odd how the Japanese tycoon had not a hint of a Japanese accent. He spoke perfect English with an American accent; American idioms, American expressions which only a native would/could use….as in any other language. Just sayin’.

Mo
Mo

I ff through a lot of those scenes (Cane’s business meeting). Major boring. And then Cane was so stupid at the end to hug the guy. Who hugs people you have business meetings with? It’s not done in America either.

Celia
Celia

I can’t stand Cane. They should have kept Scott Elrod ( Joe) for Lily and gotten rid of Cane. He acts like a brat…me, me, me…

JK
JK

IT IS TIME TO FAST FORWARD….

Celia
Celia

PS.
How about Lily and Scott?
Better yet, Sharon and Scott. They met today, but, weirdly enough, he doesn’t seem to remember her? Did I understand that correctly?

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Maybe his family lived here when he was a kid before returning to Japan or even an exchange student who picked up some American expressions…i was friends with an exchange student Inger and she did start talking Americanish and she didnt even have much of an accent from Sweden where she was from…maybe he watched a lot of American soaps like Dallas and Dynasty and picked things up from those shows.-lol..its possible!!!!

Celia
Celia

Yes, Jimmy, maybe. But, someone who has spent some time in America, his views would be a bit mollified.He was so stiff. And, accents do not disappear so easily. My Gran has been here since she was a kid. Her Scottish brogue is unmistakable.
Again, we must adhere to “it’s a soap” credo, which many of us do not so readily accept.
LOL, is right, Jimmy.

Nanci
Nanci

I thought the same thing, Celia…about Sharon and Scott.
Seemed there was a tiny spark there. Scott didnt remember
her, but then she told him it had been so long ago.

It has been so recent that Dylan left, so don’t think Sharon
would jump into anything yet, but who knows, lol. And just
when she told Faith she is happy and complete on her own!
Maybe a new friendship with him would suffice, and that would
be nice too. Sharon has new wings to fly lately, and loving
the way she is being written…independent, secure,
etc. etc. Go Sharon!

Mo
Mo

Yes, it looks like Cane will cheat. “Cane’s drunken mistake” is says on cover of
new SOD. I was hoping they wouldn’t go there.

Celia
Celia

I do believe ‘they’ want to break Lily and Cane up. It was coming. Perhaps, that’s why Scotty was brought back.
Just once, when couples on soaps do break up, I wish they were given a grace period and let they lay ‘fallow’ for a while.

Celia
Celia

Same old, same old, Mo; right? Cane imbibes too much liquor…oh, he “loses” his head and voila’!

Timmm
Timmm

Sadly my darling, it looks like Scott will be hinged to that awful Phyllis! EWWWWW!

Celia
Celia

EWWWWW…. agreed. We are helpless to say or do anything, my Timmmy. The problem for me (just my opinion) is that Gina’s role as Phyllis is very lackadasical….no effort. Plus, she comes on strongly as “I’m all that”. I loved her on OLTL….as Phyllis? She lacks the dose of oomph I received on a daily basis with Stafford.
can see Scott with both Sharon and Lily

And, the Hilary vs. Mariah thing needs to come to a peak……
I have said from the onset that once there was a trace of an “uprising” between Hilary and Devon ( way before the car accident), TPTB gave me a slight hint that something was ‘stirring’ between him and Mariah.
So, my point? I would have suggested Mariah for Scott, but, unless I am way off, these two won’t ‘unite’ because of a possible romance between Mariah and Devon.
I just want to see Hilary eat dirt, albeit her acting is beyond great….we need this bad girl.

Celia
Celia

Typo: lackadaisical.
PS, Timmmy,
I forgot to ask what makes you think that Phyllis and Scott will hook up?
But, now that you put the idea in my head, it could make sense. They will probably thrown together because Lauren and Phyllis work together, thus amidst her company.
And, yes….From one woman’s point of view, I think Daniel Hall is hot, hot, hot !!!!

Celia
Celia

Yup! Victor knows everything.
I wonder if he knows that Hilary is most likely pregnant?
What would have been the point of that “quickie” with Devon, unless a pregnancy was in the works? Sad!! I hope I’m wrong.

Timmm
Timmm

Hi Cee, I read a good rumor that Lauren will try and help Scott re acclimate himself to Genoa City and part of that is fixing him up with RED. Also he may write Victor’s book ergo paying the Mustache back his ten million dollars!

Celia
Celia

I don’t think I can suffer through another one of Phyllis’ love affairs…so tiresome, Timmmbo.
Plus, Scott strikes me as a down-to-earth, cool guy. Phyllis’ prima donna act is so unoriginal and passe’…..too much for him to handle.
But, if Scott was able to handle pandemonium and that middle eastern sand, LOL, he can handle her?? Ughh!! Not looking forward to it.
I just don’t see the sex-kitten appeal. But, I’m not a man, soooo…….

Celia
Celia

Wait, wait, wait….concerning Mariah; now that Chloe is leaving for places unknown, there’s a chance she and Kevin will revamp their relationship. That is, if she cares about him.

Timmm
Timmm

Maybe Scott and Mariah would be a match?

Celia
Celia

I did mention thst same idea, Timmmy. But, I get the feeling that TPTB are leaving the door ajar for Mariah and Devon. Will they open it all the way? Pardon the pun. LOL.
What I do think? Lily and the photographer. I know ‘they’ want us to think Hilary and he are hooking up, but I have reservations.
I would love for Mariah to be with Scott. She is so cool and I love her sarcasm and dry humor.
We shall see. Perhaps, Hilary and Devon will reunite after a separation?
I thought that divorce took a while, but golly gee, Michael is already on the fast lane?

Timmm
Timmm

Cee, I always pick on your buddy Nathan but Cain, my gosh, this guy has NO chemistry with anyone! What a dead piece of wood!

Celia
Celia

I know…there’s nothing magnetic or inspiring about this character. Did you see the sexy camisole Cane pulled out of his carry-on?
I think he did something ‘ touchy-feely ‘ with the girl in Tokyo( in a drunken stupor) without being conscious of it….( isn’t that always the excuse?) …..OR, she wants him to think that? Another ‘traumatic’ storyline happening? I, surely, hope not.
As far as comparing him to Nathan? Well, I say….at least Nathan is SOME awesome specimen to adore, worship and admire. Alas, I’m married!! Kidding!! LOL.

Timmm
Timmm

Kevin and Mariah had heat BUT he screwed her over for Natalie and then he went back to Chloe. Let Mariah and Scott have a chance. F Kevin! No Devon and Mariah please! Devon is the Michael Corinthi of Y&R!

Celia
Celia

Yeah, Timmmy. I think you know how I feel about Devon ( divan)– Hilary just sat on him for the longest time….finally he stood up to her.
Mariah deserves a guy who wants her as she is…and loves her for her heart.
But, why are they being thrown together…I doubt it’s just because they work together.

Timmm
Timmm

Looks like they are copying GH with Cane and Sonny “Cheating” on their wives?

This is fantastic news. I hope Dina stays in town a while. It has puzzled me why the last two writing regimes didn’t ever use Dina. The Abbotts are all about family. Dina would never be “Mother of the Year” but it still was striking that the woman NEVER appeared. She was AWOL from granddaughter Colleen’s funeral and, more recently, when Jack struggled with a drug problem. (The answer is pretty obvious: “Yes, it makes no sense that Dina never shows up but these writers don’t have a CLUE about the Abbotts”).

I wish the current/old writers would pick up the pace a little (but not too much!) but, other than that, I’m really enjoying how they refocused on the veteran characters and using their history.

Newmanwins
Newmanwins

Sally is a very boring story teller with a very slow pace…all she does is break out flashbacks and do some casting to win over history buffs…but the actual episodes since she took over is like watching paint dry and grass grow.

YR is a major snoozefest in 2017…never been so bored and disinterested.

No entertaining stories on the current canvas…weak drama and filler material and no real action.

MasterByMaster
MasterByMaster

Wow! Are we watching the same show? I think Y&R finally has the pace and storytelling that Bill Bell always had. Finally a return to brilliant daytime drama!!!!

Kevin C
Kevin C

Newmanwins, I understand what you saying but it takes time to get everything worked out from the mess the show has been it…Sally will pick things up… I do have to say I wish we had a mystery or some shocker of a story but again, Sally and Kay will make things happen.

Nicholas
Nicholas

totally agree ! you can’t write in 2017 a soap like you wrote it in the 50’s . the talking heads soapie over a cup of coffee is just not what viewers want . I have said it before maria arena bell was the best thing that happened to this soap : ashley’s gaslighting by adam , skye and the volcano , sharon on the run , ricky williams , the diane jenkins murder and not to forget the clever and amazing casting of debbi morgan as harmony and genie francis as genevieve . i very much miss the maria bell style of writing and many viewers do , some don’t that’s fair to say . in 2017 and onwards two soap writers will keep the soaps on the air and these writers are ron carlivati and maria bell . Days has thank god hired Ron , hope that Young is clever enough to bring back Maria Bell .

Celia
Celia

Agreed, Nicholas ( and, it’s not just because you and my seven-year-old share the same name…LOL).

Timmm
Timmm

That seemed like the best writer to appease all Y&R fans. I enjoyed that period.

Rhonda

Says you. This is your opinion, Newman and one with which many of us disagree.
I think Y&R has been delivering riveting and character driven stories which are rich with history.

Love my Y&R!!!!!!

Lately, yes, Rhonda. My interest is peaked….glad to see the return of my beloved Y&R. But, Nicholas hit the nail on the head, regardless.

Who is Ashley’s dad and why has this been a secret all these years? Why reveal it now? Will Jack use it against her?

davlestev1
davlestev1

Her father is Brent Davis whom she still hasn’t met and maybe this time around she will.

davlestev1
davlestev1

No secret she just never met him

Barbara from Atlanta
Barbara from Atlanta

I doubt that Ashley will meet Brent Davis. He died in the plot where Ashley learned her lineage.

Celia
Celia

Thanks, dav. I have been watching for fifteen years and I never knew who Ashley’s bio dad was.
I wonder if he is really dead? He may show up in GC ; coincidentally with Dina.

Mo
Mo

Jack knows. Victor does too. Dina had an affair with someone and that is who fathered Ashley. John Abbot knew too I believe, but didn’t care. Billy does not know. Billy and Ashley are not biologically related.

Celia
Celia

I am not aware of anyone else, other than Jack, knowing the identity of Ashley’s bio dad. I think John, himself, thought he was her father.
Besides Jack ( and Ashley herself?), I believe Dina is the only one who knows.

Timmm
Timmm

Victor knows EVERYTHING!

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Probably B&Bs Eric Forrester is her dad…

Gloria

Pretty sure John knew & I seem to remember him & Ashley having some very touching moments about it. Jack & Dina know but that’s it. I think!

k/kay
k/kay

No John never knew Victor knows I will be honest can’t remember if Jill ever found out all this played out in the 80’s yes Jack used this against Ashley she flipped out lost her memory etc etc etc

davlestev1
davlestev1

K/kay if memory serves John knew. Jack knows. I’m almost sure it was Ashley’s choice to never meet her real father because John was it for her.

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

Jack is the only sibling that knows her true paternity. John didn’t even know the truth. Although they don’t always agree, I doubt that Jackie would do anything of a personal nature to hurt his sister.

Mo
Mo

I hope not.

Iakovos
Iakovos

FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!! I am so excited!

Joshua
Joshua

No, I for one hope that that particular secret stay a secret. Those already knowing about it is enough. Ashley is an Abbott through and through.

Dinah
Dinah

The secret will come out, Ashley is not a Abbott, bring out the drama and skeletons out. Ashley needs a storyline, and now that Dina is coming back let the games begin.

Mo
Mo

Ashley was raised an Abbott so she is one.

Celia
Celia

Exactly, Joshua. What difference would the revelation make, at this point? Is there something to this secret so astronomically dramatic that it will change the cosmos? Matter of life and death? Let it go, I say!!

JJ
JJ

Could it be possible that Jack would use Ashley’s non-Abbott paternity to prevent her from running Jabot?

Celia
Celia

@JJ.
That’s a thought, JJ. Would Jack be so despicable to turn on his sister like that.
Well, after his heartbreak ( Phyllis), Jack did seem to revert to his dastardly ways of old.
There must be something in the works for Dina to return.

Timmm
Timmm

I agree, do NOT change history like they seem to enjoy over at GH!

Barbara from Atlanta
Barbara from Atlanta

I agree with Joshua. I’m all for a good plot. However, it is kind of nice that this secret has stayed just that…. a secret. It is nice that the writers never took the easy road with this story: a plot where John learned the truth. Ashley always viewed John as her father, NOT biological dad, tennis pro Brent Davis.

It is funny that the most recent writers introduced (unknown) biological, adult offspring who were raised by other folks and, after the big reveal, these offspring started treating the biological parents just like family with hardly any mention of the folks who raised. (I’m specifically thinking about Tucker McCall, Dylan who never mentioned his dead “father” after learning about Paul and Nikki. In a related way, Adam belongs in this category —- He never discusses Hope or Cliff, the folks who raised him and really were his parent, while he is always in conflict with Victor).

The character of Ashley has always been a good one because the writers never took the “cheap”/”easy” way to a plot by churning up the Brent Davis business. It is a nice “twist” on an Abbott that she is not biologically one while, in reality, she was the favorite child of John Abbott and the one who seems to value his legacy the most.

I’m glad Dina’s coming back. However, let’s hope it is to stir things up with the family (It would be interesting if Jack and Ashley had divided feelings about her — Jack willing to welcome her back into the fold and Ashley refusing to overlook her abandonment of them for so long) and scrapped with John’s other wives, Gloria and Jill. Also, Billy Abbott not being related to her could be another source of issues for Dina — treating him as inferior and not a true “Abbott” as she isn’t his mom.

Timmm
Timmm

Sally Sussman gets it, GH does not, you have to respect the history of the show and give mega fans what THEY want!

k/kay
k/kay

Just saw today’s episode Scotty met Sharon let’s go there ok man I am up for a scandalous affair I really am and Case can sell it Queen Sharon back breaking hearts!

Irene

I wish they would undue the Lauren/ Jill being sisters. It kills a lot of possible stories and ruined some stories. Lauren being jealous of Jill was good story. Catherine and Jill were so entertaining to watch. Lauren knowing Catherine had more with Jill was interesting. TPTB sometimes make crazy decisions.

Even if Ashley is not Jack’s sister, I never want them together. It has the yuck factor. It is a fact that Jack/Ashley match each other in acting skills. I mean the actors of course. They need a strong, experienced age appropriate actor brought on and teamed with Ashley character/actor.

Mo
Mo

Ashley and Jack have the same mother so they are half-siblings.

jake hernandez
jake hernandez

they would still have the same mother and be half siblings; there won’t be a romance plot for Jack and Ashley.

Celia
Celia

Irene, Ashely and Jack are siblings. They have the same mother: Dina.
I do not think anyone suggested anything romantic between the two. That’s called incest, as you say, it has ‘the yuck factor’.

Timmm
Timmm

I agree, both great actors but the Jill/Lauren story ALWAYS sucked and never made sense! Just like Cane, he is a mutt with no rightful place but all he does is whine!

Kevin C
Kevin C

Yes, undo Lauren and Jill as sisters…If I remember correctly Sally Sussman said it didn’t make sense and hopefully she will correct this situation. So much damaged has been done to the show since 2006…

@Nanci.
Hi, Nanci,
In the years I have been watching regularly and understand the plots ( I remember watching as a little girl with my Gran, but, storylines didn’t connect, LOL), Dina made an appearance now and then. From what I gleaned of her persona, she wasn’t ( isn’t) bad, per se, at least, not in the evil sense.
She was just fast, loose and furious, LOL…..much like most of her contemporaries.
I, actually, liked her style and personality. I hope she stays long enough for you to form your own opinion. I think you’ll like her.

Damien
Damien

I really hope this means big story for Ash… Love to see Ash tormented by her mom and ashs real paternity. Be nice to see flashbacks and hope ash leans on victor who also knows her secret. Vic and ash may have been at odds lately but they ve always leaned on eachother in the past and do share a fondness

Timmm

They are wasting Eileen’s mega talent with that computer geek! Let Phyllis have the Geek Squad and leave town forever!

Karen

Always liked Dina classy lady.
But why let the cat out of the bag after all these years.

Paul

I wouldn’t say she’s “classy” the way she’s been written, especially ignoring her whole family all this time for a cruise or whatever she’s doing.

Nanci
Nanci

I wasnt watching back when Dina was on the show, but from
what I heard, she was a mean, nasty person!

Timmm
Timmm

Dont you know, if your old, rich and dress well, you are classy!

Joe
Joe

Happy to hear that Marla Adams is reprising the role of Dina Mergeron. Now if we can only get back Roberta Leighton as Dr. Casey Reed. Casey needs a real buddy to talk to, and now that Katherine is gone, she doesn’t have any close friends. Nicki needs her sister back, now.

Joe
Joe

I meant to say Nicki needs a real buddy to talk to.

Mollie
Mollie

I always liked Casey, but can you imagine what she looks like after all those years of smoking?

Duane
Duane

Y&R would do well to hire Marla to full-time contract and have her play a major role in the storylines like the Katherine Chancellor role–a matriarch with a punch! The show could use such a character again!

Barbara from Atlanta
Barbara from Atlanta

I agree.

Timmm
Timmm

Yeah, I see your point but the actress is older and may not want to work full time. Good idea, though. Kathrine should have been recasted anyway.

Duane
Duane

I agree with you–Marla is in upper 70’s so she may not want to work full time although she would be great—–the role of Katharine was the most interesting on Y&R–at least, to me–it should have been recast! Thought Jill might become more like her and fill the slack but either it’s not in her make up or the writers can’t finesse it!

Gloria
Gloria

Sorry to be off topic but OMG this Scotty, son of Lauren looks as old if not older than her & Michael. Ugh. Get rid of this storyline before it begins. A real misstep with the new regime at Y&R, the first actually-in my opinion.

Mark Y
Mark Y

I thought so too. Maybe when he cleans up after the ordeal and gets a haircut he’ll look younger.

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

This actor’s age has to be a very well guarded secret for some reason. I have Googled him up one end and down the other , in every possible way. Wickapedia, Imd, etc. Can not find a clue, except that he has been in a lot if older movies , and was also on the GL years ago. So , he is no spring chicken , or should say rooster. In the blown up photo, he looks close to forty to me. In any other circumstance, who cares, but why would they pick someone of his age to play Lauren’s son?

Mo
Mo

Maybe being in a war torn country and kidnapped has aged him.

Mo
Mo

IRL Tracey does have a son in his 20s I believe. I have to keep telling myself that. I do this actor looks a bit old. I guess it’s a testament to how great Tracey looks.

I hope the storyline gets better. And how is Lauren going to repay Victor $10 million.

Helen
Helen

I agree, look like they could date each other.

Celia
Celia

Daniel Hall ( Scotty) is hot!!! A hunk!! Ruggedly gorgeous. And, he looks his age. He is a pro, to boot. Christian LeBlanc ( Michael) is about sixty. May not look his age, but he definitely looks much older thsn “Scotty”.
Tracey looks great….young for her age….that’s Hollywood, Gloria…LOL
When Scotty returned in 2005, I remember watching between classes ( while still a sophomore in College), he was supposedly in his mid twenties. Now, he is in his mid thirties, I guess. Lauren is in her early fifties. So, there are enough years separating them to be mother and son.
At least, it’s not as unrealistic as Phyllis (Gina) and her son Daniel ( Michael Graziadei) who are almost the same age.

Paul
Paul

Agree, I don’t like this Scott at all, way too old for the role and too angry / needs a haircut. The ONLY good thing would be if he causes Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) to FINALLY resurface after a decade to wreak more havoc (and fun for the viewers) in boring Lauren’s life.

Paul
Paul

Great that Dina is returning to GC, RIDICULOUS that she NEVER visits her family. NOW, let’s continue the great returns with SHEILA CARTER (ONLY Kimberlin Brown PLEASE – no more visits to the plastic surgeon!). Lauren has been boring as heck all these years without her arch enemy, Sheila, and Scott’s return is another reason for Sheila to resurface. Though THIS Scott is way to old to be Lauren’s son and could use a haircut too.

Celia
Celia

He is not too old, Paul. Chronologically, since 2005, his last appearance, he is the right age. Everyone ages on this soap except Lauren ( she is beautiful), but has had a lot of help looking the way she does. She looks the same since I’ve been watching….unchanging. She is not so young. She is older than Phyllis/Gina by ten years…..
So, when Lauren and Scotty are seen together, we take a step back because he does look the same age as his “mother’. But, in reality, she is older. She had him young? LOL.
It wouldn’t surprise me if Fen came back in his late twenties.

Gloria
Gloria

I actually thought Dina was dead! We haven’t heard about or seen her in so long. Scott needs a haircut & so does Lauren for that matter. She has the worst hair on the entire show. I know we have to suspend belief every day on the soaps & most of the actors are too close in age to be the relations that they are on soaps but they need to at least find people who LOOK younger than their onscreen parents. I have a hard time with Olivia & Dante on GH being mother & son. But I forget about it when I am into the show, ha.

Timmm
Timmm

I agree with Scott but disagree with Lauren. He hair looks great. Maybe extensions, maybe too much hairspray, dont really know but Tracey looks terrific!

You are correct about Olivia and Dante. He needed to be older than Michael and Morgan but not this old and the beard makes him look even older! Then again, Lisa who play Olivia looks younger than she is and thats a compliment! LOVE her and Ned together!

Mo
Mo

Well, Dina did leave her husband and three children way back when, so no surprise she doesn’t visit!

Shelly
Shelly

Scott is the right age. I recall the Sheila/baby switch storyline while I was on maternity leave 25 years ago. lol, showing my age. A Sheila return? Hmmm

lecia
lecia

The oldest whose the daddy plotline in soaps. I predict ultimately to the great satisfaction of all Ashley Abbott will turn out to be the biological child of John Abbott.

Celia
Celia

That’s a phenominal thought, lecia. Wouldn’t that be a bombshell??
Perhaps, this is the reason for Dina’s visit.

Timmm
Timmm

Thats the best comment here, maybe Dina will deliver that info. Great idea!

Shelly
Shelly

So thrilled to have her back. Her prickly relationship with her children is very realistic. Soaps will only survive if they continue to revisit familial connections. I, too, would like to see Casey Reid back on the canvas. Love interest for Jack, perhaps?

Katy
Katy

I thought it came out years ago that John Abbott was not Ashley’s father. That it was that tennis guy from the club. And I believe the main reason she abandon the family is because she got in an argument with him and hit him over the head with a golf club. Thinking she had killed him, she ran.

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.
