Joan Collins: DYNASTY's DYNAMO (People, 1982)

Shortly before Christmas 1982, Joan Collins had already spent an entire season on ABC's "Dynasty" helping the alleged "Dallas" clone find its own distinctive tone. This People magazine article was published at that time.

In "Dynasty's Dynamo" you will read about the impact Joan Collins had on ABC's hit soap, as well as about her personal life, rumors of divorce, fear for daughter who spent weeks in coma, legal battles she fought in the summer of 1982, and much more.

The final page in this post is actually a separate article published in People about a month later, when Collins and her husband Ron Kass (the father of Collins' daughter Katie) finally admitted they would be ending their marriage.

Kass died of cancer at age 51 in October 1986, with Collins (whose next marriage to Swede Peter Holm was about to collapse at the time) at his bedside.
