Heather Locklear: A Life of Ups and Downs
The legendary actress Heather Locklear, who starred in television series like “Dynasty,” “T.J. Hooker,” “Melrose Place,” and “Spin City,” has lately returned to the public eye. Fans are astonished by the 62-year-old actress’s altered appearance in new paparazzi photos. Her battle with addiction and other personal issues has taken a toll, as shown by the prominent scar on her face.

Heather Locklear, hard to recognize

Hard to recognize Heather Locklear was recently photographed in Los Angeles with her fiancé, Chris Heisser. Locklear was dressed simply in white and went for a natural, makeup-free look. Locklear demonstrated her generosity by rolling down the car window and handing money to a homeless person they saw on their way out after seeing friends.

The lives of Heather Locklear and Chris Heisser Locklear have been filled with ups and downs. Her struggles with alcohol and drug addiction have had a major negative affect on her physical appearance in addition to putting her in legal hot water. She has publicly shared her efforts to overcome her addictions and sought help through approximately 20 rehab visits over the years.

Locklear has also had a difficult time finding love. She’d experienced two unhappy marriages—to rock stars Tommy Lee and Richie Sambora—before finding true love with Chris Heisser. They rekindled their relationship from their high school days at Newbury Park High School when they were engaged four years ago. After four years of dating, Locklear’s daughter Ava from her marriage to Sambora recently became engaged to her lover Tyler Farrar. Locklear’s kid and fiancé’s love and support have surely been a source of strength for her on her path to recovery and atonement.
