She may be the star of ABC’s Mistresses now, but Alyssa Milano had no qualms reminiscing about her days on Melrose Place as Jennifer Mancini, Michael’s sister, when she stopped by Entertainment Weekly Radio’s TV Editor’s Hour. Asked for her favorite Melrose memory, Milano didn’t hesitate: “I have a great visual memory of Heather Locklear being pregnant and adorable, and passing her trailer — ’cause we used to share a two banger — and she was in denim overalls, with a black lace bra, nothing else, eating a tub of chocolate frosting.”

Listen to her interview with Entertainment Weekly‘s Henry Goldblatt below. There’s also talk of a Charmed reunion (at her house) and a discussion about why she’s drawn to shows that combine drama with comedy. “Because that’s life. What is life without laughter? No matter how hard things get in your world, you have to be able to laugh at the situation,” she says. “I remember someone once telling me before I married my husband, ‘You know you found the one if you can laugh no matter what the situation is.’ And that is truly what I have with my husband. So yeah, I think that those types of characters are really relatable — where you’re just able to look at yourself and be like, Ohmygod, what is my world — it’s hilarious.”
