Like an Applebee’s dinner entree, The CW’s Melrose Place reboot is dripping with cheese, not to mention guilt-inducingly addictive. And while I’d rank the show’s breakout character, Katie Cassidy’s Ella Simms, as prime-time’s reigning head-bitch-in-heels — last night’s “Don’t flatter yourself, David: I always have a good time” was a howl-and-repeat zinger — I’m pretty stoked that Heather Locklear’s Amanda Woodward will soon be in the mix to stir up trouble and (hopefully) boost ratings. After all, Ella-vs.Amanda > Ella-vs.Snoozy-Jane, no?

To that end, Locklear was back on the set of Melrose — and back in Amanda’s signature short skirt — for her first day of shooting yesterday, as the accompanying photo proves. Locklear is scheduled to make the first of her multiple appearances starting with the show’s Nov. 17 episode, and I’m curious, if her presence will make you more likely to watch Melrose?
