We're glad Heather Locklear's parents have such a positive attitude—because she's in their care now.

The former Melrose Place star was discharged from Los Robles Hospital in Thousand Oaks, Calif., at around 5 p.m., according to a hospital spokeswoman.

So, what now for the actress, who was admitted yesterday in an "agitated" state?

"She's fine, she was mobile, she was walking, she was dressed, she was talkative and she'll have follow-up care through her personal physicians," the spokeswoman said.

"Spirits were very good, she was calm and chitchatty. Her parents were very glad when the doctors decided she was well enough to be discharged."

Though she remained in the ICU, Locklear's condition was upgraded from stable to good earlier today, and her parents said via the same hospital spokeswoman that their daughter did not try to kill herself.

"Her parents wanted her fans to know this was not a suicide attempt and that she's doing really well and very good," the rep told reporters.
