She’s back!

In an exclusive clip from Heather Locklear‘s first episode of the CW’s Melrose Place revamp, her character Amanda Woodward makes a dramatic (and fashionable!) surprise return to offices of WPK Public Relations, walking in on Caleb (Victor Webster) and Ella (Katie Cassidy) as they’re discussing the launch party for their client Riley (Jessica Lucas) and her new jeans campaign.

While Ella is convinced all she needs to do for the event is “drink the free champagne,” her boss tells her, “You’re doing this … under direct orders from New York.”

“Oh, well you can tell New York that when we’re looking for their opinion, we’ll ask,” she fires back.

Her timing couldn’t be worse. In walks Amanda, who says, “Why don’t you tell New York yourself?” Close your mouth, Ella!

“You know how I love surprises,” a stunning Amanda continues. “This L.A. branch is drowning in red like a steer in a slaughter house. Now when I hired you to give this place a makeover, I didn’t mean smear it with lipstick and turn it into a five-dollar hooker.” Zing!

Heather’s first episode of Melrose Place airs Tuesday, Nov. 17 (9 p.m. EST) on the CW. –Aaron Parsley
