I know the real dirt on DYNASTY from behind the scenes
I worked on DYNASTY and was the eyes and ears for the producers -- working on the set, in the dressing rooms of all the actors, and in the "behind closed door sessions" of all things related to the production. I enjoyed the "untrue" but campy fun made for television movie DYNASTY: MAKING OF A GUILTY PLEASURE. I do think that writer Matthew Miller and producers Robert Setner, Frank Von Zerneck and Randy Sutter (all of whom I worked with in the past) really missed the mark in their story telling. It was my experience with this production team and writer that they have always had trouble "telling a good story" even when it could be done as formulaic as a fictionalized "behind the scenes- biopic." If only they had asked me to do some fact checking or asked for some real honest to God behind the scenes stories, I would have been happy to help. I loved working on DYNASTY and could have given the ABC audience what they really wanted- the dirt on Joan and Linda. Oh well, maybe I should write that book that so many people have offered me the opportunity to write. I keep turning them down because I am very loyal to the actors whom I love dearly, and to the most "gentlemanly of all gentlemen" in the business--Mr. Aaron Spelling. maybe in a couple of years the "real behind the scenes story can be told" and I will regale you all with a true to life 'cat fight" that ensued when Linda told Joan she could go home early and let me read the part of Alexis for Linda's close ups - because, as Linda told Joan- "He does a better Alexis than you do..." Imagine that cat fight! Richard
