Do I stick with it? Do I let it go now and just tune back in when she appears? Or do I wait until the DVD box-set arrives so I can fast-forward thru all the boring bits (and those with Ashley Simpson)?
Question I canâ€™t answer at the moment â€“ all I know is, the new â€œMelrose Placeâ€ is doing very little to impress. If the original series was crack, this is sugar-free Red Bull. Not even a fifth of the kick!
But maybe thereâ€™s salvation around the corner? Michael Ausiello reported overnight that Heather Locklear â€“ who, youâ€™ll remember, saved the â€˜originalâ€™ â€œMPâ€ when she turned up as resident Vixen Amanda â€“ will be back as the bitchy Ms Woodward on the struggling revamp.
Says Ausiello, â€œSources confirm that Locklear will play Katie Cassidyâ€™s boss at the PR firm, a genius move that will pit the showâ€™s former and current vixens against one another. This doesnâ€™t come as a complete surprise since Cassidy dropped hints about a workplace showdown between Amanda and Ella at Entertainment Weeklyâ€™s pre-Emmy party last weekâ€
If only because my colleague at Red Carpet Injection will kill me if I tune out this early onâ€¦ I might give the show one last chance. But I tell ya, there better be some intrigue real soon, or Iâ€™ll be writing the CW [another] nasty email.
