Lisa Rinna campaigns with a sandwich board to be on Melrose Place

lisa rinna 180309

Lisa Rinna needs a job. I mean REALLY needs one. She’s so desperate that she’s resorted to wearing a sandwich board to get one. Lisa and her lips were out on Melrose Avenue yesterday wearing a sign that said, “HONK FOR LISA RINNA ON THE NEW MELROSE PLACE!” She was joined by Ross “The Intern” Matthews, who at least had the dignity to hold his “HONK IF YOU HEART LISA” and “VOTE FOR HER” signs instead of wearing it lunchtime style.

I had an idea that Lisa Rinna wanted to be on The CW’s “Melrose Place” reboot. After all, she told PopWrap back in January, “I’d be the first to do it [the ‘Melrose Place’ reboot], but they always want the people who don’t want to do it! I’m like, ‘I’ll do it! I’ll do it! Please call me!'”

But Lisa took stumping to new levels today as she stood at the nexus of the universe — more specifically, the corners of Melrose Avenue and Melrose Place — waving signs that said, “Honk for Lisa Rinna on the new ‘Melrose Place!'”

Fans — and photogs — came out in full force, so if the “Melrose Place” producers didn’t know Lisa was interested before, they certainly do now!

Well, it’s a tough economy. I like to give Lisa a lot of shit for her lips (they make me angry), but I don’t really feel I can criticize anyone for being proactive. It’s cheesy as heck, but I have to admit I appreciate her plucky spirit.

In other “Melrose Place” news, Heather Locklear will not be joining the new cast.

One person who won’t be moving back into Melrose Place? Heather Locklear. The actress — who played the key role of Amanda Woodward on the original series — has turned down an offer to join the cast of the CW’s update of the hit Fox serial, EW has learned. “There wasn’t a way to bring her back that made sense,” says a source close to the situation. While the network and studio won’t comment, her reps do confirm that Locklear has passed. It’s no secret that the CW was aggressively pursuing Locklear and will likely want to secure another star from the original show. The reboot, which is slated for the fall, has already cast Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, Jessica Lucas, Michael Rady, and Katie Cassidy.

I’m starting to slightly root for Lisa Rinna. All the other old “Melrose” stars are passing – yet she desperately wants to be on the show. It’s sort of nice that she’s not too big for her britches. I say bring her back, what could it hurt? Sure, they’ll have to get a wide-angle lens for her lips, but that can be done easily enough.

    Unbelievable, what she has done to her face. And kinda sad at the same time… As for Ross Mathews…
    can you say desperate for attention!!

  2. Linda says:

    How pathetic can she be? Pathetic.

  3. anastasiabeaverhausen says:

    Turn her mouth sideways and it actually looks like labia. Ewww. I can’t even look at her.

  4. Can’t she go back to soaps?

  5. Gistine says:

    Retard. No offense to retarded people.

  6. Wow says:

    It is sad what she has done to her face! She was so pretty before doing all of the stuff to her lips. Ick!

    Love Ross the (former) Intern though.

  7. binks says:

    Lol. I hope they put her on that show.

  8. Prissa says:

    With all the talk about her lips (& I’m sure she knows) I wonder why she won’t let them go back to normal? CAN a person go back to normal or do they get all stretched out and droopy if you don’t keep them filled in??? Does anyone know?

  9. guest says:

    desperate much?

  10. neelyo says:

    She probably doesn’t need the money. Nobody’s paid attention to her in over 24 hours and she was having a panic attack.

  11. Codzilla says:

    Prissa: I was wondering the same thing. Is it kind of like when someone who’s severely overweight suddenly slims down, and they’re left with all this loose hanging skin?

  12. Prissa says:

    LOL Codzilla – I just had a visual of loose hanging lip skin, too funny!!!

  13. Hijinx says:

    MDD & Wow, I was thinking the same thing.
    Maybe she would actually get work if her face wasn’t too distracting? Just a thought.

  14. paranel says:

    How tacky and desperate. Wow. Sorry hon, but with that inflated face you can’t even be on a hot air balloon.

  15. CB Rawks says:

    Sean Young famously made a huge fool out of herself by begging like that. That’s a strange mistake to copy.

  16. ccoop says:

    I think Lisa may have something like Gore-Tex (really) in her lips, which means it can’t be absorbed by the body and therefore her lip size will not change.

    Actually, I have to kind of root for her too, it’s pretty ballsy to get out there on a street corner with a sandwich board. And I think she has ,much more of a sense of humor about it than Sean Young did about her Catwoman fixation.

  17. Elanenergy says:

    I actually used to like her on DOOL…like years ago. But now she has just sunk to an all time low–the face she’s mangled, the slutting clothing, the ridiculous way she conducts interviews, and NOW THIS! Someone needs to get the big hook, or the gong, and just make her move to Idaho. Please?

  18. CB Rawks says:

    She had a very cool bit on Veronica Mars.

  19. SixxKitty says:

    youck! Its a ‘new’ melrose, not a reject Melrose…

  20. Kat says:

    Deflate those Lips. Maybe you could get a job, if you didn’t look like a freaking goldfish.

  21. Jazz says:

    Lisa Rinna – She Of The Overinflated Lips…

  22. Codzilla says:

    ccoop: Gore-tex? For real? That’s downright terrifying.

  23. The Old KC says:

    I think it’s hilarious that she and Ross switched places in the last shot, so his “honk for her” sign is pointing down at the pavement.
