Melrose Place is about to get wild. Not only is Heather Locklear in the house and causing Amanda Woodward's usual brand of havoc, but there's a major character death coming!
We just caught up with Melrose babe Katie Cassidy (ain't she gorgeous?!) and she filled us in on all the gory deets about Ella's troubled future.
Read on for the scoop about how Amanda stirs things up for Melrose Place's new queen bee, plus what the character death means for the gang.
So first up, is Ella the one who gets whacked? "I can't tell you!" says Katie, "But I think everyone's going to be surprised. [The death] is a shocker, but at the same time, it's really good."
Look for the character death to reflect everything we've learned about the new Melrose Place peeps so far, and for it to be the turning point of the season so far!
In other news, Heather Locklear returns to the series on Nov. 17, and we hear that Amanda Woodward and Katie's Ella Sims have some choice scenes together. Katie tells us, "Heather is amazing. I've had so much fun working with her. She's a really cool chick and it's been really great to work with her. I'm happy she came on the show."
So are Ella and Amanda friends or foes? Katie tells us, "I think Ella looks up to Amanda and ultimately wants to be her, but she isn't—Ella's her own character, Ella's different. That said, with Amanda being the boss of the whole company, Ella would like to be in her shoes at some point."
Meanwhile, insiders dish that the drama is juicy: Amanda's first act upon returning to Melrose is to fire Ella's boss, Caleb (Victor Webster), on the spot (what goes around comes around, buddy), so naturally Ella is practically peeing herself whenever she's forced to be in Amanda's presence. As Katie says, "The fans can expect to see a lot of different dynamics to their relationship, but it's mostly like a boss-employee relationship."
Last but not least, stay tuned to the CW Tuesdays at 9 p.m. if you want to find out what happens when everybody's closely guarded scandals, including situations like David's thievery and Lauren's prostitution gig, are revealed. As Katie spills, "Everyone's secrets will come out! I can't say much now, but everyone's secret is eventually revealed."
So, does it work out for Ella in end, or does Amanda eventually give her the boot? Check the chat on Monday and we'll spill!
