Heather Locklear Doesn't Blame James Naughton for a 'Gross' Moment Filming 'First Wives Club'

Heather Locklear has no ill will.

The 58-year-old actress doesn’t blame James Naughton for making her uncomfortable on the set of The First Wives Club in 1996 following an appearance on the podcast Fake Doctors, Real Friends with Zach and Donald.

Earlier in the week, Heather said it was “gross” was he touched her breast while filming a scene, saying that the scene did not require him to do so.

“He doesn’t grab [my breast]. He actually outlines my areola with his finger. It didn’t say that in the script,” she clarified on the podcast.

James hit back at the claim, sharing a page from the script that required his character to “subtly using his finger to feel [Locklear’s character’s] breast.”

James remembers shooting this scene as written in the script. He completely understands that Heather would have felt uncomfortable shooting this scene, as he felt uncomfortable as well,” his rep told Yahoo Entertainment.

“Oh no, I didn’t mean James Naughton did anything wrong. The script called for him to touch my breast. I was surprised that he circled my areola. We had not discussed the scene prior to filming…To be clear, I was never upset with James, just surprised. Love you JamesHeather then clarified on her Instagram on Thursday (July 29).

James’s rep told Page Six he had a statement: “From James: ‘Love you back, Heather.’”

Heather Locklear Reportedly Headed to Treatment Center After Pleading No Contest to Misdemeanor Offenses

Heather Locklear is avoiding jail time after her sentencing stemming from two arrests in 2018.

The 57-year-old actress pled no contest to eight misdemeanors, including six involving battery on a police officer or EMT, in court on Friday (August 16).

According to TMZ, the judge sentenced her to 30 days in a residential mental health facility and three years of informal probation during which she must not possess weapons, non-prescribed medications or alcohol.

Heather must enroll in the 30-day treatment program by September 6th.

If she does not complete the program, she could face up to 120 days in jail.

Heather has been getting professional help laying low since her incidents last year, which also included hospitalization and a rehab stay.

Heather Locklear Splits with Boyfriend Chris Heisser to Focus on Her Sobriety

Heather Locklear is focusing on her health in 2019.

At the end of December, the 57-year-old actress left a treatment facility to celebrate Christmas with her family in Los Angeles, a friend tells People.

Heather
intended to return to rehab after the holidays, but is now “doing out-patient rehab at home” with the help of her family.

“She’s doing great. She has her parents staying with her, which has been great for everyone truly close to her,” the friend shares. “The fact that her parents are now staying with her is a good development and comforting.”

Back in June 2018, Heather was hospitalized for an overdose after allegedly getting arrested for punching a police officer who was called to her house over a family disturbance. She shortly entered rehab afterwards.

Heather‘s friend also revealed that she and on/off boyfriend Chris Heisser had split so she could focus on staying sober.

“By her making this move, it gives her a great reset button on what is most important and that is her sobriety,” the friend shared before adding that Chris “did not help her sustain her goals of sobriety.”
