In Calabasas, California, Heather Locklear, the 60-year-old American actress, was seen taking a stroll with her dog. Making a rare appearance, Locklear was spotted on Monday with a bloated face, dressed casually in flip-flops, a white shirt, and pants.

Accompanied by her Maltese dog, Mister, Locklear seemed content in the photos, enjoying the pleasant weather. The actress has faced challenges since her arrest on domestic abuse charges.

Locklear faced a misdemeanor DUI charge, despite tests revealing no alcohol or illegal drugs in her system. Additionally, in September 2008, she was held on suspicion of DUI.

The deputy district attorney for Santa Barbara County suggested that Locklear’s use of antidepressants and anxiety medications might have impaired her ability to drive safely. Locklear pleaded not guilty to reckless driving. Recently, she celebrated 2.5 years of sobriety.

In March 2008, a 911 call, purportedly from Locklear’s doctor, reported concerns of her being suicidal, leading to paramedics and police officers arriving at her residence. Upon arrival, it was discovered that she had overdosed on prescription medication.

When police officers arrived and knocked on the actress’ door, she was unharmed. Locklear made her television debut in a CHiPs episode in 1980. The following year, at the age of 20, she joined the cast of Dynasty as Sammy Jo Carrington. During her eight-year tenure on the show, she gained widespread recognition.

Recently, Locklear has been seen without her engagement ring, sparking speculation about her relationship status with Chris Heisser. The actress was last seen wearing her engagement ring in public five months ago, but recent photos show her without it.

Locklear earned four consecutive Golden Globe nominations for her portrayal of Amanda Woodward in Melrose Place, an American soap opera. Among the comedies in which she has appeared are Money Talks, The Perfect Man, and Scary Movie 5. She also had a role in the sci-fi film Firestarter.

In a September 2017 Instagram post, Locklear hinted at her enduring love for Chris, her high school sweetheart. They have been together for over 40 years, with Locklear writing, “My all-time favorite person. Even 40 years later.”

The actress was married to Motley Crue musician Richie Sambora from 1994 to 2007. They share a daughter named Ava, who is now 24 years old. Another former Melrose Place co-star who was in a long-term relationship with Locklear was Jack Wagner.

The couple ended their relationship less than a year after getting married in 2011, citing conflicting interests as the reason for their split.
