Heather Locklear is known for playing some of the bitchiest characters in TV history. And while in the last several years Heather’s dramatic and troubled personal life has overshadowed her career the Melrose Place star could be returning to TV except for this time around it will be reality and not fiction.
According to In Touch Weekly, Heather is in talks to join the cast of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Currently Heather is in rehab, after drunkenly attacking her boyfriend in February, but it turns out her post-rehab plans may include a move to reality TV.
“Andy [Cohen, Housewives producer] has been after her to join the show for years,” says an RHOBH insider. “Heather is deciding whether to join the show.”
“Her people think it might be a way for her to stay accountable and sober,” adds the source.
The hope is that Heather could jump-start her comeback as the “queen of the small screen” by joining RHOBH.
“She still has a huge fan base from her days on Dynasty and Melrose Place,” says the insider. “She would make the perfect Housewife!”
Heather joining RHOBH could make sense considering she worked with Lisa Rinna on Melrose Place – which creates an instant and authentic way to bring her onboard.
I’d love to see Heather join RHOBH! Could you imagine her going at it with Dorit or Erika? Holy drama!
