Heather Locklear has checked into rehab following her arrest last month.
According to Entertainment Tonight, the Melrose Place star is "getting the help she finally needs" after years of substance abuse problems. A source says Locklear's 20-year-old daughter Ava encouraged her mother to seek treatment. "Ava begged her mom to go to rehab," the insider says. "After Heather finally agreed, Ava went away with her father [Richie Sambora] to get a break from it all."

For the second time this month, Tori Spelling's husband called the police on his wife.
This time, Dean McDermott sent cops to check up on Tori when she visited a doctor's office in Thousand Oaks, California. TMZ says he sounded the alarm when Tori left home with at least one of their kids, though it wasn't immediately clear why he raised concerns.
