Unfortunately for Locklear, the show never really got off the ground, so she returned to television the next year with LAX, an airport drama. She faced disappointment yet again, as the show did not achieve high ratings and ended after only 13 episodes.
Locklear received raves for her 2005 guest appearance on Boston Legal, playing a man-eating widow. In recent years,
she has broadened her horizons beyond television; she played leading roles such films as Uptown Girls (2003) and The Perfect Man (2005), in which she co-stars with Hillary Duff and Chris Noth.
In 2009, Locklear revisited some familiar territory, appearing on a new version of Melrose Place. This latest take on her earlier hit show failed to develop a following, however, and was canceled after one season. Since then, Locklear has undertaken a few roles, including a part in the sitcom pilot The Assistants in 2011.
Locklear's seven-year marriage to heavy-metal drummer Tommy Lee ended in divorce in August 1993. Nearly one year later, in December 1994, she married Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora. Three years later, the couple had their first daughter, Ava Elizabeth Sambora. In 2006, Locklear and Sambora filed for divorce, which was finalized in April 2007.
In September of 2008, police arrested Locklear on suspicion of driving under the influence of a controlled substance. Locklear, who was believed to be alone in the car, was tested for intoxication and then booked on the suspicion of driving under the influence of prescription medication, before she was released. Earlier that year, in June, Locklear had checked into an Arizona medical clinic, seeking treatment for anxiety and depression. She returned home four weeks later.
Locklear has continued to struggle with a number of personal challenges in recent years. She was arrested in 2010 for hitting a road sign with her car and then fleeing the scene, which led to a misdemeanor charge. Locklear and actor Jack Wagner—who she began dating in 2007—became engaged in 2011, but split up before the year's end. In January 2012, Locklear ended up in the hospital after reportedly mixing alcohol and prescription medication. Shortly after the incident, People magazine reported that she was "under a doctor's care" to assist her with her recovery. Locklear chose to keep a low profile in the months after her hospitalization, sticking close to her Los Angeles-based home.
