One day after she was rushed to a hospital in Los Angeles and being cared for in the intensive care unit, Heather Locklear has got a green light to go home. Kris Carraway-Bowman, a spokeswoman for Los Robles Hospital, told the Associated Press that the 50-year-old actress was discharged at around 5 P.M. on Friday, January 13.

Hours before, Carraway-Bowman told reporters that parents of the "Dynasty" star want her fans "to know this was not a suicide attempt and that she's doing really well and very good." The rep added, "She is in our ICU now and she spent a good part of the day sleeping. That's good, and when she wasn't [sleeping] she was very chatty, very verbal."

"She has been upgraded to good condition and medically stable. That fact that there's nothing new is very good," Carraway-Bowman further pointed out. She also dished that the actress was "very agitated" when she first arrived at the hospital. "She was not speaking in coherent terms and so we needed to address that," the spokeswoman explained.

Locklear was taken to Los Robles Hospital after her older sister Colleen placed a 911 call from her home in Westlake Village, California shortly after 2 P.M. PT on Thursday. It was reported that Colleen feared the actress, who has just ended her engagement to Jack Wagner, "was going to harm herself" after allegedly having a mix of prescription drugs and alcohol.

After it was reported that Locklear was in a "medically stable" condition, words came out from Entertainment Tonight that the Amanda Woodward of "Melrose Place" was "out of control" when her sister called 911. Having said that the former wife of Richie Sambora became "a different person on drugs," a source suggested there is talk of her going directly to rehab.
