Things are looking up for booze-addled Heather Locklear as she stepped out looking healthy and fresh-faced just days after RadarOnline.com exclusively revealed the actress has secretly checking into rehab over the holidays.

As RadarOnline.com previously revealed, the Dynasty star’s latest lover, Chris Heisser, dragged her into detox in a last-ditch bid to get her sober, according to insiders.
“Chris was talking to Heather nonstop about getting into rehab, and he helped her get there,” snitched a source. “They chose a place outside of Los Angeles, and told very few people."
"They just wanted to get Heather help to start the new year the right way ... sober!”

Heisser, 56, is the same jailbird boyfriend who got into a fight with the actress just weeks before she crashed her Porsche on Sept. 14 and broke her collarbone!
Those closest to Locklear suspected the blonde had sought inpatient help when she was a no-show at Thanksgiving, sources said. “It was like she just disappeared,” blabbed a pal.
Locklear, 56, returned to her Westlake Village, Calif., home in mid-December, but remains in rehab, according to insiders. Sadly, it’s the actress' sixth attempt at drying out — and the end of the year often sends her into a tailspin.
As RadarOnline.com reported in January 2016, Heather suffered a massive “breakdown” triggered by booze and Benzedrine, and checked into the Cliffside Malibu rehab center.
She did rehab stints in 2008 and 2010, and was admitted to a psych ward in 2012 when her sister called 911 from Heather’s home after she reportedly downed a cocktail of pills and booze.
