Pictures: Sexy Heather Locklear Turns 50 in a Hot Bikini

| by Michael Allen

Actress Heather Locklear recently celebrated her 50th birthday in a skimpy bikini during a Hawaii trip with fiance Jack Wagner. Later, the 'Melrose Place' co-stars, who announced their engagement in August, took a romantic stroll on the shoreline.

According to reports, the couple were considering starring in their own reality show, which would follow their lives and include Locklear's daughter from her marriage to Richie Sambora and Wagner's two sons.

The idea was reportedly shelved because Locklear considers herself a serious actress. Part of her serious acting includes reprising her role as Amanda Woodward in an updated version of 'Melrose Place' in 2009.

She also starred in the TV movie 'He Loves Me' earlier this year, and was hoping to revive her career with the CBS pilot 'The Assistants,' but the series was not picked up by the network.
