It has been confirmed that the new “Melrose Place” will air right after “90210” on Tuesday nights here in the states.  WOO HOO!!!!!  I’m really excited that we’ll have them on back to back.  It’s also been hinted that there may be a few crossovers between the two shows, which also makes me VERY excited!  The CW’s website has added a “Melrose Place” section that includes the new commercial for the series as well as this cast photo:

Also, Shaun Sipos (who originally was supposed to be the son of Jake Hanson (Grant Show), is now going to be playing David Breck (the son of Michael Mancini).  I wonder who David’s mother will be?  Could it be Jane (Josie Bissett)?  Kimberly (Marcia Cross)?  Meghan (Kelly Rutherford)?  Sydney (Laura Leighton)?  My guess is this.  I bet that David turns out to be Michael and Sydney’s son.  I’m thinking that this will explain Syd’s apparent death during her and Craig’s (David Charvet) wedding.  I could totally see this happening:  Sydney is so excited about her wedding to Craig and so in love with him.  All of a sudden, she decides to take a pregnancy test and finds out that she’s pregnant.  She looks at the timeline for how far along she is and realizes that she got pregnant from Michael (Thomas Calabro) and not Craig.  So, she doesn’t want to hurt Craig because she loves him so much and he’s so good to her.  Instead, she fakes her death and runs away to have her baby elsewhere.  Totally sounds like a Melrose Place plot.  I wonder if I’ll be right?

Also, The CW has released it’s Fall 2009 schedule.  Some interesting things to discuss.  Here’s the schedule:

THE CW FALL 2009 SCHEDULE

MONDAY
8-9 p.m.: Gossip Girl
9-10 p.m.: One Tree Hill

TUESDAY
8-9 p.m.: 90210
9-10 p.m.: Melrose Place

WEDNESDAY
8-9 p.m.: America’s Next Top Model
9-10 p.m.: The Beautiful Life

THURSDAY
8-9 p.m.: Vampire Diaries
9-10 p.m.: Supernatural

FRIDAY
8-9 p.m.: Smallville
9-10 p.m.: America’s Next Top Model repeat

Sure to tick off many fans of Smallville, the show has been bumped to Friday nights.  We all know that any show bumped to Friday nights is dead.  Friday nights are just not a good night for TV.  So, I’m thinking that this could be the final season of Smallville, unless the fans unite and figure out a way to save it.

“Gossip Girl” and “One Tree Hill” have worked well together, so that’s a no brainer.  “90210” and “Melrose” have always been destined to be back to back (the way they started off in the 90’s on Wednesdays).  Ashton Kutcher’s “The Beautiful Life” makes sense with “America’s Next Top Model” since they are both shows about models.  “The Vampire Diaries” needed a home, and even though “Smallville” and “Supernatural” worked well together, it also makes sense to put “The Vampire Diaries” and “Supernatural” together.  The CW is going to own TV this fall with such talked about new shows and proven hits returning.  Also, note that “Privileged” has DEFINITELY been cancelled.  😦  Too bad, I really liked that show.  And also, “Valley Girls” (the Gossip Girl spinoff), as I previously told you, has been bumped to a possible mid-season replacement show.  What do you all think of this new lineup and the Melrose scoop??

So, unless you don’t listen to entertainment news, you already know that Lisa Rinna desperately wants to star on the new Melrose Place.  She was even outside with a sandwich board over her saying encouraging people to honk their horns if they love Lisa Rinna and want her back on Melrose.  Lisa Rinna played Taylor McBride on the original Melrose Place.  She moved into the complex with husband, Kyle McBride (played by Rob Estes who now stars on the new 90210 as Harry Wilson).  I don’t know how they’d bring Taylor back or why.  I like Lisa Rinna, but as Billie Reed on Days of Our Lives.  I didn’t like Taylor on Melrose at all.

The Other Vanessa Williams, who played Rhonda Blair in season 1 of Melrose Place, also wants to come back.  She said she could envision Rhonda has opened a few aerobics/pilates studios and now has a family.  Rhonda could have been a cool character on Melrose, but they never gave her good story.  She usually was pushed back to a supporting character.  In the end, she met and fell in love with a guy and moved out of the complex.  I don’t really know how Rhonda would fit into this new world they’re building, but it could be interesting to see her return after all these years.

Will Vanessa Williams return to Melrose as Rhonda Blair?

What do you all think?  Would you like to see Lisa Rinna or Vanessa Williams return to Melrose?  Would they fit in with the new cast?

OK, so here is the cast of the new Melrose Place thus far…

Laura Leighton as Sydney Andrews

Thomas Calabro as Dr. Michael Mancini

Katie Cassidy as Ella Flynn (a PR whiz whose tongue is as sharp as her stilettos)

Shaun Sipos as David Patterson (the grown up son of Jake with the taut abs and thick black book to prove it)

Michael Rady as Jonah Miller (a Kevin Smith wannabe who is obsessed with his movies)

Jessica Lucas as Riley Richmond (a sickly-sweet school teacher who is engaged to Jonah and is drawn to the glamorous lifestyle) –Jessica appeared on this season of the new 90210 as a different character.

Colin Egglesfield as Auggie Kirkpatrick (a hunky hippie, this recovering alcoholic is willing to give everybody the benefit of the doubt)

Stephanie Jacobsen as Lauren Bishop (sort of an anti-Michael, this straight-arrow med student falls on such hard times that she’s forced to pull a Sydney and trade sexual favors for financial ones)

Ashlee Simpson-Wentz as Violet Foster (Though she’s fresh off the turnip truck, this small-town teen already has a worldly-wise m.o.: play the sex kitten till you’re ready to bare your claws)

Already sounds like the storyline possibilities are endless!
