"Melrose Place" premiered on Fox in 1992 and went on to become one of the most successful shows on the network.

As reported by E! News, a lot of the original cast members reunited when they showed up in the CW's short-lived revival of the '90s hit.

Just recently, some of the show's greatest stars met up for the first time in years for an extraordinary cause. Meanwhile, here's what the cast has been up to since "Melrose Place" ended in 1999, according to E! News.

In the first season of "Melrose Place," Locklear started guest-starring as Amanda Woodward. She quickly won the hearts of the viewers, prompting her to become a regular on the show for the remaining six seasons.

For her spectacular performance, Locklear received four Golden Globe nominations during the run of the hit series.

Throughout the years, the actress has struggled with addiction issues. Her habit resulted in several arrests, stints in rehab and treatment facilities, and several hospitalizations.
