In the 80's, no other television show had the glitz and glamour (and catfights) that Dynasty had.
Each week, without fail, my Mom and I would sit down to an hour's worth of couture, sex and outrageous behaviour--it was a dream.
Joan Collins played Alexis Carrington; a rich bitch with a platinum card, an endless supply of hot men and a soft-spot for her ex-husband, Blake.
Blake was happily married to Krystle Carringtion (played by Linda Evans) who I think was his tenth wife, or something like that.
Anyway, those catfights I mentioned? There were lot's but the best ones were between Alexis & Krystle--these bitches knew how to throw a punch or two.
It was magical.
Joan Collins, now 77, comes back into the spotlight here and there but not nearly enough. I wish someone would give her a decent show--she plays the Evil Bitch role better than anyone.
Here she is, showing off her fabulous hat at the even more fabulous Royal Ascot event in England today:
She's still rocking the big, 80's sleeves--love it!
