NO PLACE FOR PREGNANCY AMONG CAST OF `MELROSE'

Actress Hunter Tylo says she's been evicted from "Melrose Place" because she's pregnant.

Tylo, who quit her soap opera role as Dr. Taylor Forrester on "The Bold and The Beautiful" to join the hit series on Fox, sued Spelling Entertainment Group and Spelling Television on Monday claiming wrongful termination, breach of contract and employment discrimination.Tylo, 33, says she was offered the still-unnamed role on "Melrose Place" in February but was told in April that her agreement to join the "Melrose Place" cast had been terminated because of her preg-nan-cy. Tylo said she found out she was pregnant in March.

Spelling attorney Sally Suchil said in a statement Monday that Tylo's character - "a seemingly happily married woman who betrays her husband" - is "simply incompatible with her pregnancy."
