It’s sad when a person starts with so much potential and promise, proves to everyone that he or she has the gift that few have but later things go bad. Then for the longest time, people talk about this person who could have been so much but ended up being so little of it. It’s even tougher for that person as he or she has lots of time to ruminate about their past and regret and cry over the lost chances which will never come back. They agonize over the ruined relationships that have alienated the very people who cared about them. American actress Heather Locklear is one such person who began her career at a young age with a bang but it went down eventually in a whimper and far worse. She received four Golden Globe award nominations for best actress when she was in her prime but today she is a forgotten figure when it comes to the mainstream entertainment industry. Such was the massive impact she made with her talent and performances in the TV series and films she acted in at the beginning of her career that even now in 2021 people are asking – What is Heather Locklear doing now and Where is Heather Locklear today?

A Series of Terrible Personal Relationships

Then she married another rock star, Bon Jovi lead guitarist Richie Sambora in 1994 but this too ended badly and Locklear filed for divorce in 2006 and got it in 2007. They fought bitterly over the custody issue of their daughter Ava Elizabeth Sambora. Her next relationship also went south when after getting engaged to actor Jack Wagner the couple broke it later the same year.
