Laura LeightonSorry, Lisa Rinna. It doesn’t look like your services will be needed anytime soon.

They might not have been able to secure Heather Locklear for their Melrose Place reboot, but the CW has just resurrected someone from the dead. Ashlee-Simpson Wentz will now be checking in with another redhead - veteran Laura Leighton - when it comes time to pay the rent.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the actress who played the deliciously bad Sydney Andrews from 1993-97 will be brought on as the update’s landlord. This despite Sydney’s supposed death by car at the end of Season 5. (You can see that clip after the jump.) There’s been no word as to how she will suddenly reappear after being MIA from the program’s last two seasons. (Ooh - will she be secretly hiding a scar under her wig like Kimberly?)

Andrews, like Kelly Taylor on 90210, is being listed as a recurring character.
