Actress Heather Locklear was taken to the hospital on Thursday afternoon after a 911 call was placed from her home earlier in the day, MSN reports.

“Emergency response personnel responded to a medical emergency call at Ms. Locklear’s residence,” Ventura County Sheriff’s Capt. Mike Aranda told People Magazine.

“Once they arrived, it was determined that Ms. Locklear needed to be transported to the hospital for further medical attention,” he said.

A spokesperson for the sheriff’s department told Us Weekly that she had been transported to Los Robles Hospital.

TMZ reports that a sister for Locklear called 911 from the home northwest of Los Angeles and that the actress was taken by ambulance to the hospital.

A spokeswoman for Los Robles Hospital in Thousand Oaks, Calif. confirms to KNBC TV’s Bev White that Heather Locklear was admitted and will stay overnight.

She was conscious, stable and resting comfortably, said Kris Carraway-Bowman, VP of marketing and public relations for the hospital.

E! Online claims the Melrose Place star mixed prescription drugs with alcohol, causing her sister to worry and believe Heather’s health was in danger, which led to paramedics examining Locklear and deciding it’d be best for her to be hospitalized.

However, Captain Aranda could not confirm these details due to HIPAA laws. Later in the day, Locklear’s daughter, Ava Sambora, 14, tweeted, “Well this sucks.”

Later Locklear’s parents said in the statement that she was in “medically stable” condition at a Thousand Oaks, Calif.

“She is in no danger and she’s going to be just fine,” Bill and Diane Locklear said in a statement issued by Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center.

Los Robles spokesperson Kris Carraway-Bowman declined to disclose any medical information beyond Locklear’s condition.

A source told Radar Online that the “Melrose Place” star was “distraught over her relationship with Jack (Wagner), it is on and off and it has upset her lately.”

Locklear and her “Melrose” co-star Wagner ended their engagement in November, saying it was the best thing for their children.
