  • Private demons: Heather Locklear was hospitalized last week because of drug and alcohol problems, a source says.

Heather Locklear’s hospitalization last week was a result of her being “out of control” on drugs and alcohol, a source tells Entertainment Tonight.

“Heather became a different person on drugs,” a source declares of the former “Melrose Place” star, whose engagement to longtime beau Jack Wagner fizzled out in November. The source claims they had recently resumed their romance — only to break up again — and that Heather was “having a hard time” with the up-and-down drama.

The fact that Jack is sober and Heather isn’t is said to be a sticking point in their relationship.

Heather’s sister called 911 on Thursday; she was discharged from the hospital Friday, after her parents issued a statement assuring fans she was “in no danger and … going to be just fine.”

There’s talk that the ageless blond actress (in actuality, she’s 50) will head for rehab now — although according to TMZ, she was admitted back in October and evidently doesn’t want to return. ET reports that ex-husband Richie Sambora plans to assume responsibility for their daughter Ava until Heather successfully deals with her issues.

Let’s hope she does just that. Heather has been one of our favorite TV fixtures for decades, and we hope she remains one for decades more. And would a permanent reconciliation with Jack be too much to ask for?

Ex Factor

Ex marked the spot at a pre-Golden Globes party in Hollywood last week, when Ashton Kutcher approached estranged wife Demi Moore … who was holding court with former spouses Madonna and Sean Penn.

The “Two and a Half Men” star opted to be a gentleman and approach his soon-to-be-ex when he spotted her.

“Within five minutes of them seeing each other, Ashton did come over,” a source relays to the New York Post. “It was a crowded room so he made his way over. Demi and Ashton, and Madonna and Sean, were talking and hanging out. Ashton and Demi didn’t arrive together, or spend the whole night together, but it was 100 percent normal. There wasn’t an issue.”

An Us magazine insider says the situation was hardly a love-fest, however. “I saw him briefly say hi to her, but that was it,” notes the source. “They spent most of the evening keeping a distance.”

How disappointing! It would have been much more fun if they had caused a huge scene.

Ring of Untruth?

Well, this is Berry, Berry strange. After quite plausible reports that Halle Berry had accepted a marriage proposal from Olivier Martinez — exhibit A being the major diamond-and-emerald bling spotted on her ring finger — sources are now saying that they are not, in fact, engaged. So, it was all a big misunderstanding?

Sources tell TMZ that the Oscar winner and the French actor are in a “committed relationship,” that he did in fact gift her with the sparkler, and that (despite her earlier avowals of having sworn off marriage) a wedding eventually “could be in the cards.” But all that said, these insiders insist that an engagement is not currently in effect.

Well, if that big-time bauble was just a token of affection, we can only imagine the ring Olivier will proffer if he does actually propose!
