Can we just get through the pandemic? Can we just get through [all of that]?’”

“[A wedding] is not so important,” the star continued. “We’re together, and we love each other and support each other. And really, that’s all that matters.”

The “Melrose Place” icon is ready to star within the upcoming Lifetime biopic “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff: The Kristine Carlson Story,” her first performing venture in 5 years. That movie premieres on Saturday.

“I thought, ‘I don’t know if I’m going to work again,’” Locklear admitted. “I don’t know if there’s going to be any offers. And then this came to me.”

Locklear and Heisser have been on and off throughout her previous struggles. She just lately marked two and a half years of sobriety.

“When I’m with him, I go, ‘This feels like home. You feel like home,’” mentioned Locklear. “And basically, he’s the most easy-going, loving person. He just has my back, and I have his. He truly is special to me.”

On Thursday, Locklear appeared on “Good Morning America” and mentioned “it was pretty easy” to inform that her newest function was the proper one.

“I didn’t want to do anything silly,” she defined. “I wanted something that had its weight. I prayed to God like whatever lands in my lap, I want it to be something spiritual. It’s so strange and it landed in my lap. It’s all about loss and recovery and coming back from a loss and I just like the depth of it. And I love the books.”
