But, why not?!
Heather Locklear's rep says the actress will not be returning to the updated version of Melrose Place.
Ugh! Amanda Woodward was the best!
Entertainment Weekly reports that Heather was in negotiations to reprise her role, but pulled out after realizing "there wasn't a way to bring her back that made sense."
Made sense? It's Melrose Place! It doesn't have to make sense --ever!
So, as of now, Heather won't be joining Ashlee Simpson-Wentz and Katie Cassidy in the new show, which premieres this fall.
I don't get it. It's not like Heather is doing anything -- and she really wasn't ever more of a success than when she was living in the Melrose apartments -- but maybe she's still taking time to fight the demons that sent her to rehab last year.
That would be the only feasible excuse.
