Heather Locklear returns to the 'Melrose Place' set: Are you going to watch now?

heather-locklear-melrose_lLike an Applebee’s dinner entree, The CW’s Melrose Place reboot is dripping with cheese, not to mention guilt-inducingly addictive. And while I’d rank the show’s breakout character, Katie Cassidy’s Ella Simms, as prime-time’s reigning head-bitch-in-heels — last night’s “Don’t flatter yourself, David: I always have a good time” was a howl-and-repeat zinger — I’m pretty stoked that Heather Locklear’s Amanda Woodward will soon be in the mix to stir up trouble and (hopefully) boost ratings. After all, Ella-vs.Amanda > Ella-vs.Snoozy-Jane, no?

To that end, Locklear was back on the set of Melrose — and back in Amanda’s signature short skirt — for her first day of shooting yesterday, as the accompanying photo proves. Locklear is scheduled to make the first of her multiple appearances starting with the show’s Nov. 17 episode, and I’m curious, if her presence will make you more likely to watch Melrose? Vote in our poll below, share your thoughts in our comments section, and do read Wendy Mitchell’s recap of last night’s episode.

    I was excited for Sydney’s return but she was always best as a weepy underdog, not a catty b*tch.

    Amanda, on the other hand, was best at being a sharp-tongued terror so yes I am excited!


  • Julie E.

    Wow, Heather looks great. I can’t participate in the poll though–I never had any intention of tuning in to the new MP, and the addition of Heather doesn’t affect that one way or the other.

    • Jill

      I’m with you. Seriously, why didn’t they just bring back all of the original cast and go from there?

    • Jennifer

      God if you guys don’t plan on tuning in, then why waste a minute of your time posting your negativity here, stick to watching whatever crap you watch and let us who are actually enjoying the show because we actually WATCHED IT to our happiness and stay there in your negativity bubble.

    I already watch the show. For the most part, it’s actually pretty watchable. I think the return of Amanda is just what it needs to get some stronger footing and find its niche, though.

  • brenda BuBois

    Amandad F’n Woodward. We missed you!!!! We got Brenda Walsh last year and hopefully again this year. Now we just need to get Alexis Carrington Colby and Kimberly Shaw back on TV and we’ll be set for a fun time.

    • brenda BuBois

      obviously I meant *Amanda not Amandad LOL

  • DW

    Don’t tease me, Brenda. I would keel over if Alexis Carrington Colby ever returned to prime time. And Slezak, Jane is awesome, not snoozy!

  • bdog

    In a word, no.

  • wtfnyc

    Hmmmm — I had given up on MP2 about 20 min into the first epi, but I might have to reconsider for this… Amanda Effing Woodward?? YES, PLEASE!!!!

  • alex

    The woman is pushing 50 and her pooch is showing in that outfit. Something a bit more age appropriate??

    • Nick

      What the heck are you talking about? My first thought was “She’s pushing 50 and looks fantastic!”

      Go back to bitter island…

      • Emerald

        I agree. She looks HOT! Why do ppl automatically think older women have pooches? I go to University and girls 18-25 have pooches! But because they have firm boobs and curves, we attribute the pooch to healthy….why cant we do the same for older women. Gosh, I hope I look that great at 50!

      • alex

        That dress isn’t flattering. Don’t they wear sweaters in LA?

    • Michael

      You think she has a pooch? Wow. She looks amazing.

    • EEKstl

      Step away from the keyboard and go get your eyes checked. She looks amazing!

  • Dave

    honestly, MP2.0 is highly entertaining … utterly cheestastic, yeah … but totally watchable and fun. i’m all over it and have no problem admitting it (ditto 90210) … giddy for the return of HL.

  • Dave

    and PS: WHAT about Jane’s return last night was snoozy? she’s a whole new woman, clearly jaded & ready to rumble after all her years married to Michael, dealing with Syd, living at 4616, etc … she was utterly wicked last night & i loved it.

  • Ryan

    I’m very excited about Amanda returning. I should say that Jane was pretty awesome last night. I never liked Jane on the original, but somehow this catty shrew she’s turned into was fun. And still trying to push her pathetic fashion career. I’m looking forward to some quality Jane-Michael interaction.

  • HD

    I am addicted to the show. I was addicted to the original until the last couple of seasons and Heather/Amanda’s return should make for some great and entertainging tv. Bring it on. And she does look great.

  • T-Bone

    I agree with Jill’s comment: Bring back the original case and go from there. I never missed an episode back in the day and most people that I know who watched the original would tune in in droves if the whole case was brought back. Some of the new folks are great (Ella and Auggie especially) but the folks from the original just clicked so much better than this lot. So in the vein of the words: “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” bring back the originals and sack some of the dead weight of the new cast. (Ashley Simpson first and foremost)

  • Dee

    I cannot believe that Melrose Place is comming back i hope it’s comming to Europe. I never missed an episode back then.

  • Jim in Palm Springs

    Was a diehard fan of the show when it was on FOX
    but only when they brought in Heather AFTER the show was already playing. Like now, Heather was brought in to boost the show’s dismal ratings and she
    did. Same scenario this time. She also looks even
    better than she did in the original series. I have et to watch an episode of Melrose redux. Will get on
    board now that Heather is back.
