January 13th, 2012 // Leave a Comment

Heather Locklear was said to be in “medically stable” condition Thursday night with her parents by her side, after an emergency call was placed from the Melrose Place star’s home and she was rushed to a Southern California hospital.

“She is in no danger and she’s going to be just fine,” Bill and Diane Locklear said in a statement issued by Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center, reports People. The troubled actress’s sister called emergency services after becoming worried Locklear, 50, may harm herself. According to reports, Locklear took a “dangerous mix of prescription drugs and alcohol.”

Twice-married Locklear recently ended her engagement to her Melrose Place co-star Jack Wagner. A spokesman for Locklear said the couple had split so they could devote more time to their families. It is the second time ambulances have been called to her home. 

In 2008, her doctor made a 911 call, claiming that the star had tried to “commit suicide”. Locklear was rushed to hospital, but the suicide claim was later downplayed. In June of that year, she checked into a medical facility to seek treatment for anxiety and depression.

Heather Locklear is seen here attending the game between the Phoenix Suns and the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center on January 10, 2012 in Los Angeles, California. Get well soon Heather!
