Rarely linked with fewer than two hunks at a time on her show, offscreen she's suddenly single, having broken up last August with her husband of nearly eight years, Mötley Crüe-man Tommy Lee. "It's sad," says the California native, who hangs out mostly with girlfriends these days. "But hopefully you grow stronger." What never grows, it seems, is her size 3 figure, despite a taste for Taco Bell. Nor has celebrity swelled her head. "When I look in the mirror I see the girl I was growing up," she says, "with braces, crooked teeth, a baby face and a skinny body." Obsessive she isn't. When Heather visits her parents, her mother, says the actress, nags, " 'Heather, will you brush your hair? Company's coming over.' " No stickler for strong jawlines, Locklear admits,' 'What turns my head the first time has to do with a guy's looks, but that's not what turns on my heart. Ultimately it's what he's like as a person that counts." Nice guys, take a number.
