No way to bring Heather Locklear back to 'Melrose'? Give me a break

HeatherlocklearSpecial guest star Heather Locklear as Amanda Woodward on The CW's "Melrose Place" remake? Not happening. Not as of now anyway.

According to EW.com, Locklear has passed on the offer to reprise her role as TV's most memorable 1990s bitch. Though the network is not confirming that Heather is out, her people have said it is so.

EW cites a source close to the situation who apparently told them, "There wasn't a way to bring her back that made sense."

Uh... pretty sure I could come up with four or five feasible story lines right this second:

1) Aging D&D Advertising exec who ignites a feud with in house publicist Ella Flynn (Katie Cassidy) whom she sees as a threat.

2) Crazy mother who ignites a feud with her daughter Ella Flynn, the younger version of everything she is and has always been.

3) Shameless cougar who sets her sites on aspiring filmmaker Jonah Miller (Michael Rady), igniting a feud with his fiancee Riley Richmond (Jessica Lucas).

4) Demanding boss to L.A. transplant Violet (Ashlee Simpson-Wentz) whom she hires with the specific intention of crushing the sweet girl's dreams... which eventually ignites a feud with all of Violet's protective Melrose Place friends.

I mean, come on.

And no doubt you guys can come up with several ideas bigger and better than what I just proposed. Let the brainstorming begin...
