Heather Locklear celebrates one year sober after battery arrest and several stints in rehab

HEATHER Locklear marked a milestone in her recovery on Tuesday.

The 58-year-old actress celebrated a year of sobriety, with an inspirational Instagram post.

The Melrose Place star used a quote from Maya Angelou to express her feelings about the anniversary.

She shared: "I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.

"I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage and tangled Christmas tree lights," the quote continued.

"I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I've learned that making a 'living' is not the same thing as making a 'life.' I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I've learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back."


It continued: "I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one," the quote continued. "I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone.

"People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I've learned that I still have a lot to learn. I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."

Locklear captioned the post by writing, "Hugs will come later! 1 year sober today!!!"

It comes six months after the ex-wife of Richie Sambora completed her time in rehab.

The star checked into a facility after being found guilty of eight misdemeanor offenses of battery and resisting officers, last year following two incidents in 2018.

The Dynasty actress has spent years battling addiction issues, and was arrested on in February 2018 after police were called to her home in Thousand Oaks, California.

She was then arrested again after she allegedly punched a cop and kicked a paramedic – just days after she “threatened to shoot herself”.

The star shares 22-year-old daughter Ava with Sambora; she was previously married to Motley Crue's Tommy Lee.
