Poor Barbara Stanwyck. Shapiro drags her out of comfortable retirement and promises the Hollywood legend a leading role on the spinoff of her number 1 TV series. Not only that, but she'd be reunited with her TV daughter, Linda Evans. She'd also be working with other old school legends. And what happens? Well, Stanwyck got pissed off at the lousy scripts and Shapiro's lies and walked. No one can blame her. She was a legend! And should have been treated as such.
What could have been done to have changed this? Should Shapiro not have made promises she couldn't keep? Should Evans have turned her back on her mentor, listening to Joan Collins? Should the writers have given Constance a larger, more juicier role as a top female executive, a predecessor to Alexis (maybe even butting heads with Alexis) rather than playing big sister and senior citizen rodeo-romping with her cowboy?
Spelling and company should have done everything to ensure this class-act stayed with The Colbys.
Can a dog keep from sniffin' its butt?
