Melrose Place: Murderer Revealed! (And Promptly Murdered)

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Drama, Prime Time, The CW, Video,

dished out helpings of murder, sex and a few unexpected plot twists last night. Sure, the episode had its faults…but most of them can be overlooked in light of all the interesting developments. Not to mention, viewers finally got what they’ve been waiting for: an out-and-out catfight that revealed Sydney’s true killer. Now that was fairly well scripted - though Michael’s wife was such a minor character, we probably should have been it coming.

That’s right - it was Brooke Burns who took down Laura Leighton (Sydney Andrews, who was murdered at the beginning of the pilot episode) after a vicious verbal fight that drove her over the edge. Finally, a flashback scene that was really worth watching. More of Amanda Woodward’s () motives for returning to the Place were revealed as well - it has something to do with some painting worth millions.

Much more interesting things happened in the episode…

No Melrose Place for Heather Locklear

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Drama, Prime Time, The CW, Gossip,

Heather LocklearIf CW was hoping to give a big name boost to its remake, the network will have to try a bit harder.

Although many were counting on an appearance from , the newbies will just have to do without Amanda Woodward. According to Entertainment Weekly, the FOX veteran decided against joining the series. An insider claims there simply “wasn’t a way to bring her back that made sense.” (I didn’t realize that was a requirement for CW’s reboots.)

As disappointing as this news might be, the network should not give up hope. Heather might not be interested in carrying the show once again, but there’s at least one other vet who’s willing to try: Lisa Rinna. The former Days of Our Lives star told E! Online back in January that she’s “available” to resurrect her old character (Taylor McBride) at any time. Yippee!

Those confirmed for the cast so far include Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, Jessica Lucas (90210), Michael Rady (Swingtown), and Katie Cassidy (Supernatural).
