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.

That's a really awful pic up there of her at the game. She looks like she just had a stroke or something the way her mouth is downturned like that. Wishing the best for her and hope she gets the help she needs.

She's a strong Lumbee Indian, and will eventually be fine. Needs to explore her Native spiritual ways.

....This is typical behavior for females whom have been gushed over by others since the time of their births due to their beauty.

Subsequently, when these types of females whom have profited from their beauty their entire lives become middle-aged and no longer attract the top of the line men they have become conditioned and accustomed to attract throughout the course of their younger and more appealing selves---very often these females become desperate, despondent, and often clinically depressed, prompting substance abuses issues, and at times even suicides or attempted suicides.

So to all you younger females out there who use your youthful beauty as a device in order to acquire what you desire through the manipulation of others by using such youthful beauty----this is what awaits you all in the end.

That clock on the wall is a nightmare to all women---and a mighty vengeful conspirator to all the men whom such women have used and discarded....Artofwar

How is her life so bad? We all have demons and deal with it. Get a grip, stop the pills and alcohol. She will be amazed how clear things can be.
