Yes, that's right. The CW announced today that Heather Locklear is reprising her role as Amanda Woodward on "Melrose Place," joining a group of former castmates that includes Laura Leighton, Thomas Calabro, Josie Bisset and Daphne Zuniga. Clearly, the the CW hopes that the nostalgia factor will draw more viewers, boosting the disappointing ratings the show has earned thus far. But given the lameness of the Brenda/Kelly plotlines on the refurbished "90210," my hopes are not high.

We do have an interesting TV phenomenon going: The CW is becoming the washed-up-soap-stars'-second-chance-showcase. As if "Dancing With the Stars" didn't already do the trick. And speaking of "DWTS," here's a clip of Tom DeLay, who is not a washed-up soap star, shaking his booty on last night's premiere.

  1. Have you even watched Melrose Place? It's a million times better than 90210. Geez you're so shallow, and it's not smart to judge her appearance based on 90210 since this is a completely different show, but I don't expect shallow people to be smart. And what have you done with your career? You're a blogger, they're actors on television making 50 times your salary, people who live in shallow glass houses should not be throwing stones.
