Models Inc. Searching for Mommie Dearest

The new Fox series needs a mother

A source at Fox TV says its proposed show Model Inc. needs an actress to playthe mother of Melrose Place’s resident bad girl, Amanda (Heather Locklear). The network has no comment on who’s up for the role, but we’ve got a few suggestions:

Faye Dunaway In need of work since she was booted off CBS’ It Had to Be You, Dunaway’s the original Mommie Dearest. Moreover, her temper makes Shannen Doherty look like Little Miss Sunshine.

Angie Dickinson Playing a den mother to a bevy of models, Dickinson could reprise her bitchy Wild Palms mama. Angie, this is your life.

Linda Evans Who could forget her stint as the evil Krystle during Dynasty’s 1985-86 season? Well, okay. How about Big Valley?

Donna Mills As Knots Landing’s Abby, Mills was the true Queen of Mean.

Zsa Zsa Gabor Dahling, you’re probably looking for extra cash now that you’ve been found guilty of libeling Elke Sommer. And who knows, maybe Spelling will let Eva do cameos.
