Original Melrose Place resident Lisa Rinna has been encouraging West Hollywood’s bitchiest resident to come back to the show set to air on the CW this fall.

“[Heather Locklear] is such an iconic character on that show,” Lisa Rinna tells OK!. “I think that they will bring her back.”

But sources close to Heather told Entertainment Weekly that she’s turned down an offer to appear on the new show. Her reps confirmed that she has declined – for now.


Whether Heather reprises her role or not, the blonde beauty will still continue to romance her Melrose Place costar Jack Wagner off-screen.

“I saw the chemistry back then,” says Lisa. “You could see that from a mile away. When I found out they were together, it didn’t surprise me.”

The couple, who have been dating for almost two years since Locklear’s divorce to Richie Sambora “complement each other beautifully,” and “have a lot of fun together.”

“I wish them the best of luck and happiness,” says the mother of two.
