‘Melrose Place’ Cast Turns Up At CW Network Upfronts

Officially stepping out as the newest members of the CW network family, the cast of the new Melrose Place had a coming-out of sorts on the red carpet. Leading the pack was former Seventh Heaven star Ashlee Simpson, who’s returning to the network in this new iteration of the 90s TV soap.

Also, the original redheaded vixen from the first version of the series, Laura Leighton, was flanked by her younger costars who she’ll end up teaching a thing or two about devilish plotting.

If someone doesn’t end up in the pool in her sister’s wedding dress by the end of season one, I’ll be sorely disappointed. Let the scheming and double-crossing begin!
