Lisa Rinna Is Open To Reprising Taylor McBride Role In ‘Melrose Place’ Revival: “I’m Around’

Lisa Rinna says she’s open to returning to Melrose Place after news hit that a revival was in the works.

Rinna has kept booked and busy since her exit from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, landing fashion campaigns and returning to acting. In a new interview, Rinna says she’s down to reprise the Taylor McBride role she played for three seasons in Fox’s primetime soap.

“Well, gosh, I’ve heard about it,” Rinna told People. “I haven’t been approached or anything, but I would love to see what Taylor McBride is up to 25 years later. Wouldn’t that be something?”

Rinna said working on Melrose Place “was one of my greatest and most fun acting experiences,” working alongside “Heather [Locklear] and the whole crew.”

“I mean, it was just a great, great experience,” she added. “So if they need a Taylor McBride appearance, they know who to call. I’m around.”

Rinna famously campaigned to be cast in the 2009 Melrose Place reboot on The CW, but the series was canceled after one season.

Earlier this month, Deadline reported that original Melrose Place cast members Locklear, Laura Leighton, and Daphne Zuniga were reuniting for a sequel series of the show. The show is in development at CBS Studios and being shopped around to networks and streamers.

In the followup series, the Melrose Place residents reunite after the death of one of their friends, “ut the pressure cooker of a reunion soon uncovers old traumas, rekindles old romances, reignites old resentments, and reveals new secrets… throwing our characters into chaotic drama that’s reminiscent of the past, but with a much more modern perspective.”
