Melrose Place cast reunites 20 years on
The cast of Melrose Place has reunited 20 years after the show went off the air.
Original Melrose Place stars Courtney Thorne-Smith (Alison Parker), Andrew Shue (Billy Campbell), Daphne Zuniga (Jo Reynolds), Josie Bissett (Jane Mancini), Laura Leighton (Sydney Andrews) and Doug Savant (Matt Fielding) reunited on Strahan, Sara and Keke this week.
The stars revealed that they all remain close and Andrew Shue gave a shout of to co-star Heather Locklear, who has had a tough few years in and out of rehab.
Locklear was brought in after the show failed to perform well in its first year and is credited with helping turn Melrose Place into one of the 90s biggest hits.
"I want to give a shout-out to Heather too, who's doing incredibly well. We think about her all the time, she's also an incredible, incredible person," he said.
Savant and Leighton spoke about how they started dating as Melrose Place was ending and remain married 21 years later.
"We got to know each other as co-workers and as people and so by the time we were leaving the show, that was the beginning of our relationship and now 21 years later!" Leighton said.

He was married to floral designer Jennifer Hageney from 1994-2008., with whom he had three sons: Nathaniel (born 1996), Aidan (born 1999) and Wyatt (born 2004).
They divorced in 2008 and in 2010 he married ABC News correspondent Amy Robach.
He founded a global non-profit organisation called Do Something, which aims to motivate young people to make positive change both online and offline through campaigns that make an impact.
Savant, 55, started out on soap opera Knots Landing, before he won the role of Matt Fielding, one of the first openly gay characters on mainstream TV.
He has continued working regularly since leaving Melrose Place, most prominently as Tom Scavo in Desperate Housewives, in which he starred opposite his former co-star, Marcia Cross.
In 1998 he married Melrose Place co-star Lauar Leighton, having two children together, Jack (born in 2000) and Lucy (born in 2005).
Savant had two children from his first marriage to Dawn Savant.
Leighton, 51, found fame again post Melrose Place in the series Pretty Little Liars, which she starred in from 2010-2017.
She was nominated for a Golden Globe for her work on Melrose Place and named one of People magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People.
She returned to her role of Sidney Andrews in 2009 in the Melrose Place spin-off which only lasted a year.
Bissett first found fame in The Hogan Family, in which she starred for two seasons.
Bissett also married one of her Melrose Place co-stars. She wed Rob Estes in 1992 and had two children together, Mason (born in 1999) and May (born in 2002) before divorcing in 2006.

The 57-year-old got her big break playing Princess Vespa in the cult comedy, Spaceballs. However, most people will remember her for her role in Melrose Place.
She went on to have a main role in One Tree Hill and now mostly stars in made-for-TV movies.
She got married this year to businessman David Mleczko.
