"Her ultimate goal is to get back out there and do what she does best," the insider dished to Radar. "Now it’s a case of schmoozing studio bosses and lining up some well-paid roles."

In addition to feeling inspired to work again, the source claimed the blonde beauty, 61, also "needs the money," as her bank account has diminished from "years of frivolous spending."

The actress hasn't worked much since 2017, and the following years were filled with trouble, as in February 2018, she attacked a police officer. That June, she was arrested again for battery against an EMT employee, and just days later, the mom-of-one ended up in the hospital due to a suspected overdose.

Even before her break from the spotlight, Locklear endured countless troubles, including alleged suicide attempts, substance abuse and multiple rehab stays. However, the insider revealed that in recent years, "Heather has put her health above all else."
