Reunited and it feels so good.

Get ready for some of your ol' favorites to come together at the Emmys next month.

I just got word that producers are putting together cast reunions to help celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Emmy Awards...

Just two years ago, former Charlie's Angels pinups Farrah Fawcett, Jaclyn Smith and Kate Jackson came together for the first time at the Emmys in who knows how long to pay tribute to their show's creator, the late television maestro Aaron Spelling.

Mr. Spelling may be there in spirit again when the awards show is broadcast live on ABC from L.A.'s Nokia Theatre Sept. 21, because, I'm told, producers are hot for a reunion of the Spelling-produced Melrose Place.

But such a large cast could prove to be a planning nightmare, one source says.

Think about it: Heather Locklear and her TV lover turned real-life boyfriend Jack Wagner, Courtney Thorne-Smith, Doug Savant, Josie Bissett, Andrew Shue, Grant Show and on and on. Also in the mix could be Desperate Housewives' resident redhead Marcia Cross and Sex and the City's Kristin Davis.

Producers may also be looking at a Happy Days reunion. No doubt they'd have no problem convincing Henry Winkler, Scott Baio, Marion Ross, Tom Bosley, Erin Moran and others to take part. But will they be able to get Ron Howard to sing his Richie Cunningham cover of Fats Domino's "Blueberry Hill"?

No word on other possible get-togethers—a rep for the Emmys won't confirm or deny any such reunions are even being talked about—but I'm thinking Dynasty, Dallas, Knots Landing and, of course, the original 90210.

How about you? Any past favorites you'd like to see hit the Emmy stage? Leave your comments below.
