What happens when you meld spite and capital? Helen Razer explains in an extract of her new book, A Short History of Stupid
I have longed to slap Heather Locklear for many years. This is due in no small part to her portrayal of Amanda Woodward, a hard-as-acrylic-nails Lady Ad Executive on 1990s prime-time youth soap Melrose Place, a program which, at the time of its broadcast, could not be lawfully avoided.
Amanda Woodward was made of spite and capital and could very well have been the product of a motel union between Alexis Carrington of Dynasty and General Pinochet of Didn’t You Kill All Those People in a Stadium fame. I disliked her very much.

Bill Chais and Kevin Falls, who both previously worked together as writers on the short-lived Emmy-nominated James Woods legal drama Shark, teamed up in 2011 for an all-new legal drama, Franklin & Bash, which follows lawyers and lifelong friends Jared Franklin and Peter Bash, a pair of unconventional lawyers whose M.O. typically involves them doing everything a lawyer shouldn’t (drinking in court, hitting on clients) in order to win their cases. Once such case sees the duo score legal win against the large and prestigious law firm Infield Daniels, which brings them to the attention of Stanton Infield, one of the said firm’s major partners, who recruits the pair to work for the very firm they beat in court – bringing both their legal skills and their sense of »

Locklear, who celebrated her birthday on Sept. 25, and was spotted looking fit and having fun, playing a game of tennis. It’s no surprise Locklear, who currently stars on TNT’s Franklin & Bash, was photographed working out on her birthday.
“Exercise plays a huge part in that [sustaining a positive outlook], especially cardio. I also love to play golf and tennis. Even a walk in the evening can take the edge off a bad day,” Locklear told Parade in January.
In that same interview, Locklear also dished on how music and workout buddies help get her motivated to go to the gym, and how she makes sure her diet is in keeping with her active lifestyle. “I use portion control and try to keep it healthy 80 percent of the time. »
It's hard to believe Heather Locklear turned 53 yesterday. Wearing minimal makeup and looking youthful as ever, the former Melrose Place actress flashed her megawatt smile while celebrating her birthday during a few rounds of tennis in Calabasas, Calif., Thursday. Locklear accentuated her slender shape by wearing a tight tank top and spandex pants. Besides tennis, how else does the former Spin City star stay fit? "I do resistance training three times a week. That really helps with defying gravity and keeping things in place," the actress told Parade in January. "I have light weights to do reps with both my arms and legs. I do cardio a couple times a week on the treadmill, with the music »
Changes are coming to TNT's Franklin & Bash.
When the fourth season kicks off Wednesday (10/9c), the legal comedy will feature new characters, a few major exits and a new look. Rachel (Heather Locklear) has left the firm, in addition to original cast members Pindar (Kumail Nanjami) and Carmen (Dana Davis), while Franklin (Breckin Meyer) and Bash (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) too have taken on new, more senior level positions within Infeld-Daniels. But don't expect our favorite slackers to button up. The duo says that, if anything, Season 4 feels like a return to form with Franklin and Bash as the renegade underdogs you're rooting for.

The Boston Herald writes that Shatner will cameo in "Ted 2" as himself, where he'll be "a speaker at some kind of superhero fan convention to answer questions about his role in 'T.J. Hooker,'" the 1980s police series in which he starred alongside Heather Locklear. Why he'd be at a fan convention to talk about that show, and not his iconic "Star Trek" role of Captain Kirk, is beyond us, though perhaps that's where the comedy comes in, as the Herald notes that in the scene, Shatner "gets annoyed when fans keep asking him about 'Star Trek.'"
"Ted 2" is shooting in Boston, so it makes sense that the Herald would get the scoop on Shatner's casting, though there hasn't been any official word »

It takes a lot of people to make a movie. Mostly, we pay attention to the film's stars, or their above-the-line crew like directors and screenwriters. However, it is often a small army that is employed to scout locations, construct sets and costumes, set up lighting, operate cameras, feed the cast and crew, and accomplish all the less sexy but absolutely crucial tasks absolutely required. When an actor gets hurt on set, it's big news. But it's the death of a crewmember that moviemaking's lesser-known contributors are entreating us all to acknowledge. THR says the group Slates For Sarah has organized the above PSA, which asks that we all remember what happened to Sarah Jones, in hopes that it will never happen again. The video features stunt people, caterers, gaffers and grips, make-up artists, a wardrobe department, assistant directors, camera operators, producers and stars like Sam Underwood, Heather Locklear, Paul »
It has been almost five months since an on-set accident killed camera assistant Sarah Jones, but the Hollywood community is continuing to honor her, promising "Never forget, never again."

The Feb. 20 on-set fatality that claimed the life of Sarah Jones, a 27-year-old camera assistant, has continued to inspire the Hollywood community to seek increased awareness of safety issues.
The latest effort is a two-minute “We Are, Sarah Jones” public service video with a wide variety of actors and below-the-line crew members. None of the participants speak — instead, they simply hold placards with slogans such as “We are Sarah,” “Safety for Sarah,” “Slates for Sarah” and “Never forget, Never Again.”
Participants include Nina Dobrev, Paul Dano and sister Sara Dano (a set costumer), Wendi McLendon-Covey, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Heather Locklear, director Jake Scott, producer Jennifer Brooks, Sam Underwood, makeup artist Micah Laine and second A.D. Casey Madigan.

In fall 1993, a coming-of-age comedy called “Boy Meets World” premiered on ABC’s “Tgif” Friday night lineup; 21 years later, its sequel series, “Girl Meets World,” is debuting on the Disney Channel with many of the original cast members reprising their roles for a new generation.
Few could have anticipated the enduring popularity of the family sitcom — which starred Ben Savage as Cornelius “Cory” Matthews and Danielle Fishel as his first love and eventual wife, Topanga Lawrence — but ABC’s Tgif block was responsible for a number of iconic comedies during its initial run between 1989 and 2000, many of which still live on in syndication today. And, as with all networks, the roster was also responsible for some spectacular trainwrecks, with concepts so surreal, you’d think a kid pitched them while on a sugar high.

Are Heather Locklear and Richie Sambora the friendliest exes ever or are these two headed for reconciliation? The Bon Jovi guitarist recently opened up about his ex-wife and admitted that he still has feelings for the mother of his daughter, Ava Sambora. "Time does heal old wounds. I mean, I still love Heather and I know she loves me," he told People magazine. "She's the mother of my child, man. What can you say?" The 54-year-old also gushed about his daughter, saying, "She and I are close and have a candid relationship. Boundaries are set…that doesn't budge."

Heather Locklear and Richie Sambora are divorced, right? Well, you certainly wouldn't know it seeing how the exes were all smiles as they happily strolled on the beach while vacationing together in Kona, Hawaii last Sunday. And as always, 52-year-old Locklear, decked out in a white sundress, proved that age is nothing but a number as she kicked up the sand with the rock star. The former couple called it quits from their 13-year marriage back in 2007. They have a daughter together, 16-year-old Ava. Speaking of Ava, her parents also showed off their amicable side last October when they co-hosted her birthday party at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, Locklear was »
Television shows are evolving organisms, which is one of the most exciting things about them, but also one of the scariest. Mediocre pilots can one day lead to great series, and vice versa. Brilliant shows can abruptly fall off a cliff, and mediocrities can stun you with leaps forward. Characters can die, settings can be abandoned, and even genres aren't sacrosanct. You just never know. One day an earnest, boring show about twentysomethings trying to make it in the big city can import Heather Locklear and turn into a gleefully trashy soap opera about the apartment complex of the damned. Or a black comic farce about the Korean War can take a more serious tone as it ages and various actors and producers come and go. Or a riveting thriller about a terrorist sleeper agent and the bipolar CIA agent chasing him can fall apart by keeping the sleeper agent alive much too long. »

Friendliest exes ever? Heather Locklear and ex-husband Richie Sambora certainly didn't look like a divorced couple when they vacationed together in Hawaii with daughter Ava Sambora this month. In fact, the former spouses -- who split in 2007 after 13 years of marriage -- looked pretty chummy. The Melrose Place actress, 52, stunning as ever in a breezy white sundress, was all smiles as she walked alongside the ex-Bon Jovi guitarist, 54, on a beach in Kona, Hawaii, on Sunday, March 30. Sambora was in good spirits, [...] »

Who says you can't have eyes for your ex? Richie Sambora couldn't keep from gushing about his ex-wife Heather Locklear while celebrating his friend Ray Parker Jr.'s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday.
