    Report: Ashlee Simpson Headed To 'Melrose Place'

    Singer and actress Ashlee Simpson is the latest star said to be headed to the newly renovated "Melrose Place" according to Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello.

    Ashlee will reportedly play a fresh faced small-town girl named Violet, who has a dark "calculating, shrewd sex kitten within," according to the mag – which bears a striking resemblance to the show's original good-girl-gone-bad, Sydney, played by Laura Leighton.

    As for "Melrose's" most beloved star, Heather Locklear, the actress is reportedly considering a return. "Both sides are talking," a source told the mag. "It's looking good."

    The former "7th Heaven" star – and possibly Locklear – will join Katie Cassidy and Michael Rady, who have already been cast in the CW show, which is slated to debut in the fall.
