HEATHER LOCKLEAR ON MELROSE PLACE

Hollywood actress Heather Locklear won't be part of the new "Melrose Place" , because she's not convinced writers can find a way of bringing her character Amanda Woodward back. Locklear was considered for the remake of the drama, but she has turned down an offer to join the cast. A source tells EW.com, "There wasn't a way to bring her back that made sense." The star's reps have confirmed Locklear has declined the offer to return to the role. The new show, which is will hit Television later this year, will feature new mother Ashlee Simpson and former teen icon David Cassidy's daughter Katie. Meanwhile, another former "Melrose Place" star, Lisa Rinna, is going to extremes to land a role in the beloved TV series' remake. She's even hitting the streets of Los Angeles California to drum up support. The actress recently confessed she'd do anything to appear on the sure to be hit show, and proved it on Wednesday by urging motorists to "honk" for her. Rinna, who played Taylor McBride on the original series, worked the corner of Melrose Avenue and Melrose Place with placards stating, "Honk for Lisa Rinna on the new Melrose Place."
