Fresh Off the Boat has a Lock on another Melrose Place alum.

Heather Locklear is set to guest-star on the ABC family comedy, EW has learned. The actress will play Sarah, the intimidating ex-wife of Marvin (Ray Wise) who faults Honey (Chelsey Crisp) for the collapse of their marriage. Sarah is not only a DJ at the Radisson but also works at the glove counter of a department store, which may explain the name of the episode: “The Gloves Are Off.”

Slated to air in February, the episode is directed by Fred Savage. The alum of The Wonder Years and The Grinder recently helmed episodes of Casual and Two Broke Girls this year, and his directing resume also includes such credits as Modern Family, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and Happy Endings.

The following episode brings the return of Locklear’s former co-star and onscreen adversary, Courtney Thorne Smith, who appeared in a FOTB installment earlier this summer.

Locklear recently starred in the UP movie The Game of Love and guest-starred on the TLC drama Too Close to Home.
