Morning Quickies: Heather Locklear Hospitalized For Drugs & Alcohol

  • If there’s one thing not to mix with alcohol, it’s prescription drugs. Heather Locklear learned this the hard way and was hospitalized yesterday afternoon after her sister called 911. A hospital spokesperson says Heather is awake and responsive right now, but law enforcement sources say the actress consumed a “dangerous mix” of drugs. In 2008, Heather’s doctor called 911 out of concern that she may have ODed on prescription meds. Get well soon, Heather Locklear! [TMZ, Starpulse]
  • Sinead O’Connor has called off her marriage with Barry Herridge yet again. The couple married, then split after 17 days, then got together again. In a message on her website, Sinead posted “The marriage [is] untenable so that is now over.  … I’m gonna be me. And if anyone doesn’t like that they can seek therapy. Because I am wonderful. Exactly as I am. As Bridget Jones would say.” While I admire her quotation of Bridget Jones, I am worried for this woman! Earlier this week, Sinead tweeted that she desperately needed a psychiatrist who could prescribe her meds. Hope she’s getting the help she needs. [The Sun UK]
