Melrose Place Can't Meet Locklear's Demands!

As we mentioned earlier this month, Heather Locklear is no longer in negotiations to join the new version of Melrose Place on The CW.
We guessed that Heather probably wanted too much money to reprise her role as Amanda Woodward.
Turns out…we were right!
According to new reports, Locklear was asking for too much money.
One insider revealed, “In these tough economic times, the network simply wouldn’t – or couldn’t – pay Heather the kind of money she thought she deserved. She wanted at least $100k per episode, which is what she could have commanded in pre-recession days, and the CW would only pay half that├óΓé¼┬ªor less.”
Not to mention Heather isn’t too happy that producers want to focus more on the new cast, which as you recall is set to include Ashlee Simpson, and less on her.
The source adds, “Heather probably wouldn’t even have been a regular character on the new Melrose Place, but a recurring star. She was mainly going to be used to lure old fans to the new show. But Heather was looking for a meatier role and much more money.”
If you can’t pay up, then shut up!
But we’re guessing Heather’s right. A lot of people might not tune in if Amanda isn’t back on the show.
Bring Amanda back!
