'Melrose Place': Lisa Rinna is just kidding with her campaign...or is she?

Posted on

Lisa Rinna hit the streets to land a gig on The CW’s Melrose Place remake. The ’90s sensation’s Taylor McBride-turned-Dancing With the Stars hoofer donned a sandwich board on March 18 and marched on the real Melrose Pl. asking folks to “honk” for her cause. She stresses it was all in jest for pal Ross Mathews’ web series on TheInsider.com (no affiliation!) — but says the sentiment behind it is real. “Would I love to see Taylor McBride on this show? Of course!” she says. “What’s so wrong with wanting to go back to a show you loved?” She hasn’t heard from producers (and they declined to comment), but she has plot points ready in case: “I left the show pregnant, but I can’t remember if it was Michael’s or Peter’s baby,” she says. [Ed. note: It was Michael’s.] “But you could age that baby up and add five years, and you have a teenager. Or maybe I come back to run the apartment complex. Or maybe I open my own ballroom dance studio.”
