Melrose Place” was one of the most popular primetime soaps of the 90s, first debuting at the beginning of 1993. The spin-off of “Beverly Hills, 90210” chronicles the lives of eight young people living in LA in an apartment complex, trying to establish their careers. A new character was introduced in the first season: Amanda Woodward, played by Heather Locklear. With larger-than-life shoulder pads and Locklear established as the villain on the show, it skyrocketed in popularity. “Melrose” ran for a total of seven seasons and ended in 199. Find out what the OG cast of “Melrose Place” is up to in 2023.
After hitting a low point, Heather Locklear had a comeback
Locklear was one of the most popular Hollywood starlets, especially after her time on “Melrose Place.” After doing a range of TV guest spots, she experienced heartbreak in 2007. Her divorce from musician hubby Richie Sambora was finalized. The years after included Heather being hospitalized for anxiety and depression, getting arrested on a DUI charge, and showing up on the unsuccessful reboot of “Melrose Place.” In 2010, she was arrested once again for a hit-and-run, and in 2012, she was hospitalized for a lethal blend of alcohol and pills. After many tumultuous years, she entered a treatment facility, and a year later celebrated her sobriety with an IG post. Soon after, she starred in the Lifetime biopic “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff: The Kristine Carlson Story.” It seems like she’s on a better path, and we’re happy for her!
