Heather Locklear may return to Melrose Place



Tbd-heatherlocklear082409 Heather Locklear may be headed back to Melrose Place, since People reports she's in talks to head to the CW version of the show to reprise her role as Amanda Woodward. If only they could get Marcia Cross, too; then it would be like 1994 all over again!

The 47-year-old would join a cast that still includes a ton of original stars like Laura Leighton, Thomas Calabro, Josie Bissett and Daphne Zuniga. Locklear's rep didn't say boo about negotiations, but executive producer Todd Slavkin did say "We're huge fans of hers."

So what exactly are the criteria for inviting the old folks back?

"Does it feel organic? Does it not feel contrived?" Slavkin said. "That's what's important to us." But the best thing about the old series was that it was stilted and contrived; that's why we loved it!
