Pill Popping and Boozing

| Filed under: DrugsHeather Locklear


A rehab facility 'insider' sold Heather Locklear out to the tabloids!

The Melrose Place alum's mouthpiece previously claimed that the actress was receiving treatment at an Arizona facility for anxiety and depression.

But, a source with connections to the center (Sierra Tucson) treating Locklear tells InTouch Weekly that she's being treated for alcohol and prescription-pill dependency.

Heatherwas supposedly driven all the way from LA to the Arizona facility by boyfriend and Melrose co-star, Jack Wagner, to keep her admission to rehab a secret.

That didn't last very long!

A family insider also reveals to the magazine, "Over the years, she's had in-home detox sessions with a nurse, but none of it has ever worked."

Another source adds, "Two years ago, she attended a discreet women-only Narcotics Anonymous meeting in the San Fernando Valley."

Wow. Seems like she's been battling her demons for a while now.

Get well, Heather! For your sake and that of your daughter!

    I pity that child of hers to have two parents with substance abuse issues.

    oopsie daisie looks like the skank got caught out in YET ANOTHER lie. Like she has lied time and time again over the past few years

    the truth will eventually come out Heather and sadly for you the public will see the real you. this isn't a new thing, this is what caused the breakdown of your marriage. The sooner you stop blaming everyone else and making excuses the sooner you can heal and get yourself well

    She's done a pretty god job at keeping he shit secret. I had NO clue she had addiction problems.

    I have been saying that for months,,,that she is a pill popper! Jesus..its about time the TRUTH came out! She is a prescription pill whore and so is Jack. Thats what they have in common. Her issues with her marriage came along way before that whore Denise started fucking Richie. Heather is a mess…not only are her cheek implants a mess and her facelift a mess, but she is a mess with her drug problems. FINALLY, the TRUTH!

    it is no secret that all these bitches love drugs.I was actually at a PARTY where a certain A list actress had her mouth gluuuuuuuued to a Meth Bong.She was smoking shard after shard and then followed it by having a shot of GHB.

  12. AZhot says – reply to this


    She's been addicted to meds since she was with Tommy Lee. I used to live in Woodland Hills and she would pop into our local 7-11 mini mart for booze, etc. all the time. She bought coke (and not the kind you drink) from my former friend. Her hair is paper thin, which is why it was laughable to me when she made commercials for L'Oreal hair color. She's always been rail thin, courtesy of drugs. I hope she cleans up her act because deep down inside is a sweet lady.

  13. bumsc says – reply to this


    Who cares who's first, you lame bitches?

    Leave Heather alone. Frankly, if she's trying to get better, you're all vultures to suck off her unhappiness.

    Let her get well.

    And Let's put an end to this STUPID IGNORANT 'first thing'. It's SOOOOOOOOO boring.

  14. Rober says – reply to this


    OMG i watched TRL today, just for you. xD. u were great. and your losing weight sexy.
    lol i love your site, and i check it everyday, and i think your awesome!

  15. Val says – reply to this


    Ummm…hello!!! Anxiety and depression lead to pill-popping and drinking! Shame people are making such a big deal of this.

  16. dg says – reply to this


    You know I actually felt for her because she appeared to be honest about her troubles.
    If this is true that that's really what she's in there for then it sucks she got ratted out, but I still have no sympathy for celebrities—sorry it comes with the territory.
    Betcha she wouldn't trade her wealth for privacy, no freakin' way.
    No celebrity would….
    You know what policemen know they are dangers to their profession, firefighters too and so on….but you don't see them bitch that oh, I might get hated on if Im a cop or but fire is so hot…

    You are so priviledged as a celebrity, that's why no one should feel sorry for them…. She should just feel fortunate she can leave to go to a good facility for help and know that when she comes home she'll still have a beautiful home that isn't being foreclosed on.

    Heather be happy you can get the help you need instead of feeling sorry for yourself that we found out why you're really in there for….hey at least you're not missing any limbs or dying of cancer….

    Same as Selma Blair.

  18. Seren says – reply to this


    I think there is a huge problem with prescription pain medication in this country! You wouldn't believe how many people are addicted- get well Heather!

  19. 19

    While she was dating David Spade Ted Casablanca's said they shared a common like/need for something. Guess it was pills.

  20. drtri says – reply to this


    Alcoholics and addicts are everywhere. It happens to the best of us. She probably also has an underlying anxiety/depression problem, since addictions and mood disorders so frequently go hand-in-hand.

  21. Yvett says – reply to this


    She had to have cheek implants. Her face would've caved in otherwise, due to the constant whiffs; snorting. Jack Wagner and Heather are avid golfers… and you know what George "the great" Carlin says about golf… (YouTube it).
    Typical, old, boring Hollywood. Perhaps if she took the focus off herself, say - world issues and her daughter more, she'd be happier… just sayin'…

  22. T says – reply to this


    Doesn't she look like Carol Ann from the Poltergeist movies??? Just sayin'!

  23. YUP says – reply to this


    That makes total sense. I don't know anyone who was able to "quit" pills/opiates the very first time he/she tried. It seems like if you got an opiate addiction, you're in it for at least a couple years!! First you have to "detox" and get weaned off the opiates-hopefully with meds like suboxone- that help decrease the physical withdrawals. Then you have to stay sober and fight cravings as your brain chemistry, hopefully, goes back to somewhat normal. AND if she's mixing pills with booze! A No-No! Most people who overdose on pills and die, have mixed them with another drug. Plus, alcohol is the #1 drug you can actually die from the withdrawals i.e. delerium tremons. You would think heroin-but no-go look it up. So yes, Good Luck Heather! She's been shitty for a while and hopefully an in-patient facility will help her stay on the road to recovery!

    Promises in Malibu costs $70,000 a month. I should know - I tried to check in there myself. Betty Ford was more "reasonable" - $25,000 per month.

  25. C says – reply to this


    It's hard enough for someone to deal with addiction privately with themselves and their families. How much harder to have it all made public fodder? I wish Heather the best and I hope she can get the help she needs.

    Re: Yvett – watched the Carlin video, Yvett, had forgotten that! Thanks for mentioning it.

  31. Tinka says – reply to this


    Is nothing sacred? Hope someone gets fired at Sierra Tuscon. After that, H can turn around and sue them, too. Lay off and let the girl get well.

  32. B says – reply to this


    poor heather….she tried to take care of her demons discreetly. It must suck living in hollywood and not being able to trust ANYONE. Jack Waggoner seems like a really good guy who really cares about heather. Get well honey - we love you!

  33. stefi says – reply to this


    if you really wished her well and to recover perez, you wouldn't print this information….that's why these programs are supposed to be annoymous douchebag…and shame on whomever the insider was who gave out this information..what's next? you bloodsucking scum suckers are going to attend AA and NA meetings to give us the "scoop"? shame on you all..and to wish her child well to boot…really perez you're disgusting

  34. Tami says – reply to this


    com on perez this is the last thing somone needs to get well i thought you were better than tmz , what happend to the A lister news for hollywood ??? you rlosing your touch , giv the girl a break K for her daughter s sake , think about your little one , peace out

  35. L. Ro says – reply to this


    "Get well, Heather! For your sake and that of your daughter!" ?
    Perez, quit acting like you give a fuck about any of these "people". We all know damn well you don't give the least amount of shit for these "people"

  36. Tami says – reply to this


    Kudos to steffi , she said it real ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,and right >>>>>>>>>>>>>

    GODDAMN SHE IS HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  38. Kelse says – reply to this


    It is really appalling that someone would spill PRIVATE MEDICAL RECORDS. Celeb or not, everyone deserves and should have privacy when it comes to their healthcare medical records. Period. End of story. Get well, Heather.

  39. Lena says – reply to this


    Heather is a trooper for seeking help. For a celebrity, this is probably the toughest thing to do because it's contributes tabloid drama. Some people desperately needing help continue to live in denial. For instance Denise Richards, instead of focusing on her own issues, she strikes out at those around her.. Heather, Charlie..

  40. Hung! says – reply to this


    She'll be fine. That said Perez, when will you get treatment on yourself for popping cock in your mouth? Seems like it's non stop. You know, you really should do something about that. Don't worry about cock in your ass. Baby steps. You'll get there.

  41. roach says – reply to this


    Rehab is a joke!!!!! You need someone to tell you the shit you already know and then bill your ass for 30g's ask poor Lindsay!!!! You truely have two choices!!!! Beat it or be consumed!!!!! The stars have a massive problem, enough money to feed their addiction!!!!! The regular junkie has to turn to crime!!!! God help this whole fucking world!!!!!

  42. three says – reply to this


    Speculation aside, whenever a celebrity goes into treatment for 'depression', all you need to do is research the facility. As Dr. Drew points out, chemical dependency facilities will NOT accept patients who are not chemically dependent, it's that simple.

  43. TEAMD says – reply to this



  44. Giggl says – reply to this


    NO ONE should be ratted out when seeking any type of medical treatment. NO ONE. "Celebrity" or not. We all have a right to privacy.

  45. kimbo says – reply to this


    I wish her the best. Addiction is tough. You have to change everything about yourself and work on your fears. It has to be tough if you are in the public eye because everyone wants to judge you. They have no privacy to walk into AA today and get the help and support they need. AA and NA has always been about reaching out to help one another. Let her be!!!!

  46. 46

    Poor Heather …I hope she kicks the habbit and gets back on her feet.

  47. VEE says – reply to this


    She is the typical Hollywood skinny girl w/ fake boobs, fake hair, fake teeth and fake cheeks. That look is so passe', Paris, Pam Anderson, all of the young blondes on t.v., nobody looks different and they all kill themselves to maintain that silly look. Once they go to rehab they blow up like balloons. Denise is even sporting some cankles lately.

  48. CMF says – reply to this


    I suspected that it was really pills. I hope she gets well. I like her.

  49. 49

    The gleeful tone of the post is pretty sad. I am really sorry to hear she is another casualty of alcohol and too-easily-prescribed drugs.

  50. j-b says – reply to this


    well, I for one, hope she does better. I think prescription drugs are an awful thing to get addicted to and they can mess you up worse than street drugs.

  51. cking says – reply to this


    people have problems, so what. at least she's not out every night making an ass out of herself and her family like some of these hollywood skanks

  52. 52

    I always new her life wasn't all candy + roses. Hope she gets well but, to be honest, I don't really care all that much.


  53. Molly says – reply to this


    The programs are anonymous for a reason. There's a special place in hell reserved for those who break that rule–especially if they work for a facility. It should be anonymous for people who are celebrities, too. It's a disease. None of our fucking business.

  54. *Tif says – reply to this


    "over the years"
    "Two years ago"

    Perhaps her addictions (and those of Sambora) had far more to do with the failure of their marriage than Denise Richards after all.

  55. HIPAA says – reply to this


    If someone at Sierra Tucson leaked information about her treatment then thatperson should be fired and if liscensed staff reported. That is a violation of her privacy as protected by HIPAA laws. Ppl do not have the right to know what a person's medical condition is nor the details of their treatment. And as for the anxiety and depression..well ppl with anxiety and depression self medicate all the time. This is not news.

  56. Henne says – reply to this


    Perez - please respect the anonymity of all persons with chemical issues who allegedly attend 12-step meetings. If someone is trying to get sober, reports like this can keep them away from the help they so desperately need. This isn't cellulite of fugly outfits - this is survival.

  57. I'mJ says – reply to this


    She should have NEVER hooked up with Jack Wagner, he's the worst pill-popper of them all! Ask his ex-wife… he got her so into pills that she couldn't even see-straight enough to divorce his lying, cheating ass… he's trouble girl! RUN if it's not too late.

  58. sassa says – reply to this


    Re: Henne
    PREACH!!!!!!!!! My issue with Perez, the Paparazzi and the other tabloids is its one things to slam someone for bad hair, lookin like a hot mess, a messy break-up, or what have you but I say mental health, health issues in general, drug & alchol addiction and kids are and should be OFF LIMITS! I also am thinking about adding that people should not out someone before they out themselves to that list.

  59. MomV4 says – reply to this


    Not surprising, considering she has to live in a spotlight, esp. as a parent! I am with her as far as that anxiety goes, but there ARE good prescription drugs to help nicely!! No more worrying about what the neighbors "MAY" think. Please God bless her and her family, incl. R.S.! xo

  60. runhe says – reply to this


    JAck Wagner is the worst pill-popper ever! Ask Kristina Malandro Wagner, his ex-wife. That poor woman caught herpes AND a nasty pill habit from him!!

  61. gen says – reply to this


    Doesn't alcohol and prescription pill dependency mean anxiety and depression?

  62. @v@ says – reply to this


    If Heather Locklear can't find a decent guy to go off and be happy with, what hope is there for the rest of us? Oh, I know, quit chasing the show offs and give some attention to the nice, somewhat normal guys all around you who would be happy to do your bidding and not treat you like dirt.

  63. po-gi says – reply to this


    Wow, I would have never guesed it, Heather seemed like the most normal down to earth person in La La land….I hope she gets better and whoops Denise "the schank" Richards ass.

  64. TwoPe says – reply to this


    So we've reached the point where anxiety and depression are more socially acceptable than drug addiction. Time was when depression was way more taboo than being a pill popper. They're both tough rows to hoe.

  65. patsy says – reply to this


    PEREZ, you have some of the nasty bloggers I have ever seen. Fire the insider and bump off the family member. Heather we are praying for you to get better. Jack is a dreamboat and had a problem in the past but is a life-saver now. I know Jack is sober as a judge for years now.

  66. Melro says – reply to this


    Oh my God, I never knew. she always seems so in control and normal in interviews. She was cool in Melorse Place though. With next year being ten years since it's ended I think they should revive it. As the characters havne't aged they could pick up exactly where they left off. I love you Heather. Get well soon for yourself and Ava. xxxx

  67. Ronni says – reply to this


    Denise Richards is looking better and better all the time.

    I do wish Heather well in her recovery, but stop the lies already!

  68. 68

    Disgusting waste of Talent!
    Maybe She'll get Her Shit together!

  69. david says – reply to this


    The addictions can come hand-in-hand with depression, you know. It could still very likely be anxiety and depression that she is going to get treated for.

  70. jolie says – reply to this


    Booze is what she had in common with her ex. Her current boyfriend is sober and trying to help her even by tabloid accounts. Consider it penance for his past.

  71. piero says – reply to this


    There is a piece in Drudge today (7.1.08) that cites a study asserting that 16.2% of Americans have used cocaine at least once. Does it ever occur to these ostensibly cool idiots that, in using cocaine, they're helping to fund the killing of tens of thousands of innocent latin americans in places where drug lords and narco-terrorists hold sway? Don't they read the newspapers? Use cocaine or heroin and you have blood on your hands.

  72. Told says – reply to this


    Of course it is. I could have told you that. It's always pills & alchohol. She's just sliding downward over Denise's show. It's always easy to steal a drunk's beau unless she is a true beauty with an education under her belt & good genes. Then if she is, you look like the fool because you are envious.

  73. Jack says – reply to this


    She needs to be back on TV ASAP!!!!!!!!

    It really hurts when these actresses that were once hot and their 15 minutes of fame expires. They just can't get accept the fact that they are older and our society worships the young…

  81. Sierr says – reply to this


    Re: three – Regarding Sierra Tucson, I was a patient there two years ago and you don't have to have a chemical dependency to be admitted. They also offer depression, sex addiction and sexual trauma and trauma programs….It is a top notch facility that does NOT cater to celebrities. There were a couple there when I was there. They are treated just like everyone else…Most often, people are dual diagnosis and have depression,etc PLUS drug and alcohol problems, but there are people who do not…..Bottom line, wish her all the best…..

    She is pretty and sexy. I think I will love her. LOL. Every time I sign in to the celeb club RICHLOVING.COM, I can see many new topics talking about her. She has created a nice profile for seeking a great man for hook ups.

  86. Snick says – reply to this


    Whoc ares about Heather? What about that poor child of hers and Richie's? Sheesh, first she's in the car when her dad is caught driving drunk, then her mom goes to rehab. They need to ship Ava off to foster care along with Denise Richards' girls - these kids have suffered enough!

  87. blake says – reply to this


    Heather you are amazing!!! we love you… DON"T let Denisse the cunt win and ruin your life. She is a big piece of white trash!!! She can't get laid by one of the pigs she has in her house and she lets her dog eat pig poop!!! Trashy DENISSE PIECE OF SHIT!!!!

    Compared to Denise she is!

  93. Hanna says – reply to this


    Indeed. I don't recall Heather ever saying she was a saint, but compared to Ms. Richards she might as well be. That's why Denise is so obsessed with snarking on Heather.

  94. jessy says – reply to this


    She has had a hollow leg for years. Heather is dating Jack Wagner?? Now that's NEW gossip.

  95. Fiii says – reply to this


    Um, she could also be receiving tx for anxiety. It's pretty common.

  96. Grims says – reply to this


    I feel sooooooooo bad for her!!! Her ex-husband & ex-homewrecking stinky skank friend should be ashamed of themselves, especially when they mostly hurt Heather's child with what happend I'm sure. I mean no wonder Heather had a depressing breakdown, who wouldn't after that kind of shit happens :( .

    Heather is not the little innocent wife that was left behind and back stabbed by her " friend" . this goes to show that her sorry ass was probably like this thats why Richie left her and Denise left Charlie's perverted ass. Now who looks bad? the addicts? or the ones that left for a reason?…

  100. ihear says – reply to this


    this is such a crock of crap. i bet she's at a spa, not rehab. Probably with jack wagner. Leave the two alone, they're taking a break and loving every minute of it. She's an amazing woman who is more than capable of handling any so called 'demons'
