EXCLUSIVE: Heather Locklear Pokes Fun at Rumored Past Substance Abuse Struggles on 'Fresh Off the Boat'

By
Heather Locklear is moving on from her past rumored struggles with substance abuse, and she's doing it all with a sense of humor.
The 55-year-old actress guest-starred on Fresh Off the Boaton Tuesday, poking fun at some of the headlines that have plagued her in recent years.
"I have fibromyalgia," Locklear's character says when she is accused of having a "prescription drug problem."
Locklear filmed the episode in December, a couple weeks before a tabloid report surfaced, claiming that she had suffered a breakdown and checked into rehab for the fifth time.
The former Melrose Place star never confirmed nor denied the reports, but gave ET this quote: "I am feeling great and am taking steps to enrich and better my life. Currently I am working on tying up some loose ends regarding certain issues, so I can hit 2017 full steam ahead."
The year has been great to Locklear so far. In addition to her Fresh Off the Boat guest appearance, she also regularly appears on Tyler Perry's Too Close to Home, which airs on TLC.
