8:00 PM PT:
A hospital spokesperson tells TMZ, Heather was awake and responsive when she arrived today -- and she is currently responding well to treatment. According to the spokesperson, Heather is doing much better now and doctors are hopeful she will be released tomorrow.

We're also told Heather's parents are currently with the actress inside the hospital.

--------------------------------------

Heather Locklear
was taken to the hospital by ambulance Thursday afternoon after taking a dangerous mix of prescription drugs and alcohol ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

We've learned ... Locklear's sister called 911 at 2:05 PM PT fearing Heather was in danger.

The fire department, along with the Ventura County Sheriff's Department responded. Paramedics examined Heather and determined she needed to be hospitalized.

This is not the first time Locklear has had a medical emergency where 911 responded. In 2008, her doctor was concerned she may have overdosed on prescription meds. He called 911 and the operator described the situation as a "suicide attempt." It turned out to be a false alarm.

Locklear recently called off her engagement to Jack Wagner.

Heather was at the Lakers game Tuesday night ... hanging with a friend, who was playfully trying to take away her beverage. It's unclear if the drink contained alcohol.

Heather's Dynasty co-star Rock Hudson has someone walking very much in his footsteps (artist of Faith album with neucystis pneumonia a deadly disease usually associated with AIDS). His method of treatment involves harassing former fans who've nothing to do with his condition (ie my 90 year old aunt has a sister in law named Aretha ) and are in good health. People forget about his falsehood on tv many years ago involving his arrest for lewd conduct. I hope she isn't the same and best wishes on a speedy recovery.

I truly love when people say they're addicted to prescription drugs, I guess in a users mind if they're prescription drugs they're less of an addict? Her daughter needs to be removed from her care, if she wants to self- destruct let her, she's already been to rehab she knows exactly what to do if she feels she's falling off the wagon. Her daughter however, is innocent in all this. OR one of two things 1) she's trying to get on Dr. Drew's celebrity rehab or 2) she's trying the Kardashian rule to fame any and all publicity whether good or bad is good. : )

The fact that such a beautiful and talented lady is having these issues leaves me wondering what else Hollywood produces. They chew em up and spit them out! The price you pay for fame and fortune is often way too much. I hope she leaves Hollywood behind and gets herself together and finds the happiness that phoney place can never offer.

Let this be a lesson to the likes of Kim K! You think your s*^t don't stink right now but get this...Heather has talent, you don't. Heather was called the queen of Hollywood, you are called other things. She was and is loved by millions of fans of her work, you are not. When your looks fade (and they will) what do you have to look back on? A long string of black sex partners! We will all see what becomes of you because you can't change what is soon to befall you. enjoy what's left of the slim window you now live in.

I remember Heather way before she became a star. Innocent,beautiful,and just starting out. Heather,you have come along way.Your acting skills started to improve along with the show TJ Hooker.Your Beauty has gotten you far. But i think the turn came when you got with Tommy Lee,from there it has been a battle. Go into a re-hab,or a Spiritual place for awhile,be with friends that are healing,supportative. Dont think that it is over,and feel so depressed.We still beleive in you, hang in there. Joan -Hollywood,CA.

Hasn't Obama done enough damage? Not to mention the USG is paying big bucks for security in Iraq because the biggest embassy in the world is at that location. Do you know about the Afghan Allies Protection Act of 2009? The US will be getting 1500 Afghans per year, those who allegedly fought for us for one year in Afghanistan, plus their eligible family members. We will soon be a Muslim country.
