Lisa Re: Melrose Place: “I’m Way Down On The Totem Pole”

Lisa Rinna wants on the new Melrose Place bad, but she doesn’t expect to be the show’s first priority, according to E Online’s Marc Malkin.

"I’m way down on the totem pole," Rinna acknowledged. "You know, this one doesn’t want to do it, that one doesn’t want to do it, so I’m just hoping that they get down far enough to me, where they’re finally like, ‘Oh, just call Lisa…Just hire her, for God’s sake! Stop her begging!’ "

I know that she may not be at the top of the list, but if you watched her on Veronica Mars I’d say she’d fit in right nicely as one of the new teen set’s mother.

    It’s kind of sad to read how much she wants this. I have never really been a fan of hers and only watched Melrose Place in the beginning (before Locklear).

    Not that she has done anything strange, but she reminds me of Sean Young and how she wanted the Catwoman job so bad. :(

    Taylor was a fun character, but she is like Val to 90210, sure it would be nice to see her again, but she wasn’t one of the breakout characters from the first couple of seasons. Unfortunately, MP killed off the two characters I would love to see make cameos, Kimberly and Sydney. I already know they will sign Heather, because they’d be crazy not too. But that will take some ‘splaining too, as Amanda and Peter (Jack Wagner) faked their deaths at the end of the original Melrose Place.

    ROTFL, Chrystie! That’s taken it too far. Sean made a damn fool of herself trying to get that role.

    “ROTFL, Chrystie! That’s taken it too far. Sean made a damn fool of herself trying to get that role.”

    I really didn’t mean any offense to Lisa (I hope you know) :) . It was just a knee-jerk reaction because I keep hearing how she wants this job SO bad and then she called herself a freak a couple weeks ago, which ties into this comment by Jon:

    “Lisa better lay off the plastic surgery…she’s starting to head into Priscilla Presley territory…SCARY!”

    And with both facts combined, she does look desperate and kind of pathetic. I just think she wants to work in the worst way and is just wanting to be the sexy starlet that she once was. I think all that attention on Dancing with the Stars got to her and she missed it.
