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!
