LOS ANGELES, Aug. 23 (UPI) -- Heather Locklear delighted fans with her return to television Monday evening.

A clip from the episode sees Locklear make an icy impression as Katelyn as she confronts the president's mistress, Anna (Danielle Savre). The series follows Anna as she deals with the fallout of the affair.

"All I can tell you is that Heather Locklear is going to be one of the most cold-blooded people you have ever seen in film," Perry told Entertainment Tonight at the show's Los Angeles premiere last week.

"Before bad girls were good, she was great," he added of the actress' Melrose Place character, Amanda Woodward. "It was a bit intimidating [working with her] because it's Heather Locklear. Who didn't have the poster on the wall?"

In addition to Melrose Place, Locklear is known for playing Caitlin Moore on Spin City and Chloe on Hot in Cleveland. Too Close to Home airs on TLC.
