It's so good to see Knots getting some serious love after all this time. I've even forgiven them for suggesting that Chip, Ciji and Mack were core cast members in Season Three.
Wonderful that even Connie McC and Alec Baldwin contributed. I'd read that moustache story somewhere before, but it still made me chortle. And the strip-o-gram story was brand new to me.
I might have to track down a copy of this article.
The article looks awesome. I have never heard of the magazine before but I assume it's on sale in the USA. It's great that Knots is getting this kind of recognition in the media.
I had never heard the strip-o-gram story before either. Or the moustache one or how they got Ava Gardner on the show. All fascinating stuff.
I guess this means that Laura and Ciji were supposed to have had a lesbian affair behind Richard's back and here I was all these years just thinking that they were good friends.
This looks more like an 'internal' magazine circulated among CBS employees, or perhaps produced for CBS affiliates, rather than something from a newsstand. Really, really good looking article!
They actually sell this magazine / you can subscribe to it (or so I've heard. For me printed magazines are so 90's...)
I have a weird feeling that it's not really an interview but was rather taken from several different cast interviews with some inaccuracies added.
The mustache story was mentioned at the Paley center special.
So was the story of Michael filerman meeting Michele Lee , only it wasn't her agent's house - it was producer jack grossbart.
Joan telling producers she and ted were too much alike was mentioned on Oprah if I recall correctly, and so was michele eating all the props at dinner scenes...
Not sure about the ava gardener story but Paley had like 20 min of casting stories.
I must have missed the paley center show. Which year is that one from?
I think 1995 or 1996. Very cute to watch if you're ever in Los Angeles or New York.
Thank you. I will try to watch that the next time I'll go to Los Angeles.
