The bitch is back. Officially.

And not just the fake, MTV-lite bitch, the O.G. one.

Amanda Woodward is back on the prowl as the CW announced today that Heather Locklear, after much speculation and negotiation, will stop by the renovated Melrose Place on Nov. 17.

And that's how you do sweeps.

"We're ecstatic to have the chance to bring Amanda Woodward back to Melrose Place," exec producers Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer said of the grande dame of prime-time soaps.

"Heather's involvement in the show is something we've been working on for some time as we couldn't imagine creating and producing this show without the iconic character's inclusion."

Locklear is the latest—and most anticipated—original cast member to pop up on the relaunched series. Former castmates Laura Leighton, Thomas Calabro, Josie Bisset and Daphne Zuniga will also appear this season.
