Despite reports that Heather Locklear was close to signing on for the new Melrose Place, Entertainment Weeklyis reporting that she has turned down the opportunity. EW quotes a source close to the situation:
There wasn't a way to bring her back that made sense.
With Ashlee Simpson-Wentz already cast on Melrose redux, and Locklear out, things are not looking too promising from where I'm sitting.
One former star desperate to get a role isLisa Rinna. We Love Soaps has a snap of her with a huge "Honk 4 Lisa Rinna on the new Melrose Place!" sign around her neck. Apparently, she was out campaigning on the real Melrose Place, Los Angeles, yesterday.
