The Melrose Revamp Ill-Advisedly Continues
Nobody at the CW has, in the last month, come to their collective senses and said, "Holy hell, we are remaking a cheesy, awesome, cheesily AWESOME show and also giving Ashlee Simpson a paycheck. WHAT HAVE WE DONE?!" and aborted all plans for this remake, which is a pity, but they HAVE chosen to add one of my all time Melrose favorites to the cast: Laura Leighton's Sydney will be the new landlady.
Even though this is silly because we all saw her die dramatically on her wedding day, and even though she'll probably get even less airtime than Jennie Garth on the new 90210, and even though we still have not heard ANYTHING about a Michael Mancini cameo, I have to admit that this is the best Melrose related news I have heard yet (a statement obviously damning with faint praise), because Sydney and Laura Leighton are pretty fab.
EDIT: Thank you, Nikki for the heads up: Michael Mancini! On the new Melrose! Eeeeee!!!
