(Newser) – Actress Heather Locklear was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital yesterday after downing a dangerous mix of prescription pills and booze, according to officials. The 50-year-old Melrose Place actress was conscious when paramedics arrived and is responding well to treatment, sources told TMZ. Locklear was treated in 2008 for depression, and is now said to be distraught because she and actor Jack Wagner called off their pending marriage.

It appears Jack knew marriage to an unstable druggie was a disater in the making. She just proved he's a smart man who dodged a bullet.

Ms. Locklear; I know you shall never read this and that indeed it to bad BUT: No man on earth and no woman on earth are worth you dieing over not even by "accident". Please find someone you can lean on and rebuild your support system, grief is hard to manage along, especially the loss of a loved one even if the loss is by one or both your choice, loss is loss. You have many great years ahead of you, grab them and rife the ride. That said I along with a great many are glad you survived, may you continue to do so
