Heather Locklear Rushed to Hospital

Updated on January 13, 2012

What is it about Hollywood celebs?

So I wake up this snowy morning in Lexington Kentucky, I check out my hub stats from last night, check out the comments... not bad... people seemed to like the Philly Catholic schools story... great!

Then, I click over to, "Google Trends," in order to decide what to write about today. And lsiting as Google's #1 search trend is 50-year old, Heather Locklear of 80's T.J. Hooker fame.

I asked myself what is it about celebrities that one finds so alluring and romantic? Is it the lifestyle, the glamour?

From a personal stand point, some Catholics here in Lexington, can attest to the money aspect being a grand factor.

For the Lexington Catholic Church in Kentucky, seems willing to set aside her moral believes and principles and invite any celebrity who will raise church-funds, in spite of any immoral baggage said celebrity might be hauling along with them... but I digress.

So I click on a Locklear news link, or two, to see what the hoopla is all about. And guess what? Heather Locklear was not starring in some new mini-series. She was not announcing some new reality show, her "people" were not promoting a new movie.

No, her family was assuring Locklear fans, the 50-year old starlet is okay. You see, Locklear was rushed to the hospital last night in Thousand Oaks, Calif. after 911 had been called by her sister.

This is not the first time the Melrose star has been hospitalized. According to, USA Today, "Locklear has been hospitalized several times over the years." And in 2009, the troubled celeb pled no contest to reckless driving after being arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of prescription medication.

Since her divorce from rocker, Richie Sambora, Locklear has seemed, somewhat despondent, and in November 2010 she and on-again, off-again bow, Jack Wagner, broke off their engagement.

At Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center last night, Locklear's parents were at her side and said in a statement, "She is in no danger and she's going to be just fine."

Paramedics at the scene, however, decided Locklear's condition warranted the celebrity's hospitalization.

Kris Carraway-Bowman, Los Robles Spokesman, would not disclose any medical information beyond the star's condition, says, People.com.

So, what is it that attracts us to Hollywood Celebrities? On the surface they appear Happy, vibrant, and full of life. Beyond the surface, there seems to be another story brewing - a story not so glamorous. A story where the lights are not quite so bright and anguish and despair evades the camera leans.

Rather than place public personalities on high pedestals and roll out the red carpet, we should instead utter a heartfelt prayer for them. For deep down, they are no different than those of us on the other side of the screen.

Heather Locklear, we pray for you.

      Great hubpage! I voted you up!

      I've always like Heather Locklear. When I was living in Dallas, I went through a couple of years where my hair was cut very similar to her. A couple of times people would stop me and say that I looked like Heather Locklear, which was an ultimate compliment at that time!

      I don't know what it is, but the Southern California lifestyle can be very empty for a lot of people. I've lived in San Diego now for 16 years and have gone through different phases of my life here where I've had lots of friends around me, and then times when I have been working on my art, graphic design, music, or writing -- where I have had to live a life more isolated to complete my own thoughts and sentences... without the influence of well meaning friends and associates.

      I don't know what it would be like to be a Hollywood celebrity, but that must be quite isolating. Imagine always being followed by the paparazzi where you can't even go to a restaurant or to Starbuck's for coffee-- without someone taking random photos of you to be published in a major magazine publication.

      It would be difficult to live an authentic life like that.

      Almost like a zoo animal in a cage-- with people examining your life constantly.

      Not that I wouldn't wish for fame and stardom, but there is a very high price that these people pay for achieving the success and stardom that they have attained.

      Unfortunately, that price - may include their own life and personal health.
