And now she's back, looking good and ready to get back to work.
She'll be making her acting comeback by starring in a new TV pilot about a dysfunctional family where she will play the family's matriarch. After wowing producers with her screen test, her husband Antonio Banderas says the studio is ready to shoot a pilot.
"It's a comedy about a dysfunctional family and a woman of her age with grown kids and her husband wants to be a politician. The studio loves it so we hope we are going to make the pilot the end of November."
This is great news for Melanie. We've forgotten what a great actress she is so we're excited for her comeback.
We're ready for you to bring that Working Girl charm, Mel!
