    Oh dear  … and modelling her after Amy Locane’s big flop of a character, axed in Season One (if I remember correctly)  

    I’m guessing Heather Locklear shouldn’t get her hopes up for this show…

    singer-actress….:D They’re joking right? She can’t sing and she can’t act.
    Why oh why is it that so many untalented people keep getting jobs? :~

    First of all: Ewwww. Second of all: Yeah, let’s model the character after a FAILED character they cut after 1 season. Third: Back to the Ewwww comment. Did Heather Lockler do something so terrible to the producers after she signed the contract that they are punishing her like this?

    And what about Ashley being pregnant with that make up whore’s kid again? How are they going to write around that? Is that the secret: That she’s pregnant with a transvestite’s kid?

    Well, I guess this answers whether or not I should bother checking this train wreck out. Setting the casting scene with this – um, no thanks!

    Alright, I guess I won’t be watching the new Melrose Place then.

    Seriously, out of all the actresses out there, they pick her? What, they think she has a fanbase that will bring in viewers ? Or it it because she is so talented and beautiful? Please.

    Great, just kill my excitement over the new MP!!! Hopefully once they see her try to act they will cut her. I don’t know how she keeps getting work.

    She can’t be a Sidney, heck not even an bland model like Amy’s character.

    This show has gone to trash and it’s not even on tv yet.

    No Michael…no me.
