Everybody knows who Heather Locklear is. She was the star of "T.J. Hooker" with William Shatner, a fixture on "Dynasty," the siren of "Melrose Place," the best thing about "Spin City" aside from Michael J. Fox, and featured in too many other productions to bother listing. Basically, she has been a Hollywood icon for decades. However, let's examine Heather a bit more closely.
