When I heard that Nick Zano would be joining the Melrose Place cast as a doctor working with Lauren (Stephanie Jacobsen), I naturally thought they’d get involved, forming a love triangle with David (Shaun Sipos). Recent video teasers from The CW Network, however, revealed that Nick is being matched up with Riley (Jessica Lucas) and Lauren actually has to worry about David straying with a hot blonde played by newcomer Melissa Ordway, who previously appeared on the CW’s “Privileged.” I noticed Melissa in the YouTube teasers and am guessing she’s taking over the sexpot role vacated by Ashlee Simpson-Wentz. If you, like me, wondered “Who’s that girl?” when you saw the teasers, check out her interview on the web site Girl2Watch, which reveals how her character figures in David’s storyline. Looks like it’s gonna be a classic case of blonde vs. brunette for the love of Melrose’s favorite thief.

TV Guide is usually pretty upbeat in its coverage of Melrose Place, but next week’s issue has a behind-the-scenes photo feature with commentary from cast member Stephanie Jacobsen (Lauren) that leads one to think the mood on the set was bittersweet during filming of the season’s final six episodes. The episodes, which begin their run March 9, include a reunion of original Melrosers Jo (Daphne Zuniga) and Jane (Josie Bissett) with the ever-rascally Michael (Thomas Calabro). I’m sure Amanda will come on the scene to offer a bitchy remark or two for old times’ sake. Let’s just hope there will be more Melrose alumni reunions to come next season. Meanwhile, here’s a scan of the article with shots of Melrose faves old and new. It’s on page 16.
