    I have been watching season 3 this past few nights and am nearing the end of it. I randomly decided to watch and haven't watched any Dynasty in about a year. It will be good to re-watch Dominique's entrance again very soon.

    I never thought of her as 84, she always seemed younger. Very sad, loved seeing Dynasty and Diahann trending on Twitter today and reading all the tributes.

    Farewell Diahann. A pioneer and a class act. A true beauty with a voice to match.

    She actually showed up at the Golden Globes, and according to Spelling told him “when you going to put me on your damn show” ? Lol. Carroll fit into the fabric of Dynasty, but I think making her Blake’s half sister was a mistake. I think this pretty much lessened the conflict on the show as far as the Carringtons went. Dominique and Alexis did have some fun run ins though. She made such a splashy entrance, only to be given less to do in the next few years, in a role, that when written correctly, should’ve lasted until the end of the series. Beautiful and talented woman. Rest In Peace, Diahann.

    Whispers were that she grimaced through the arrival of Kate O'Mara because she saw Caress as usurping her Bitch#2 status, and, frankly, the producers should have used that and created a European backstory between Caress and Dominique.

    Of course, the producers didn't seem to tune in to things like that. Miss Carroll later said that the creators of Dominique Deveraux just lost interest in the character (as they did with all the characters, except, perhaps, for Alexis).

    As Norma Desmond:

    Rarely...I mean rarely did anyone cast a shadow over Dame Joan Collins (Alexis Carrington) however the one and only Diahann Carroll (Dominique Deveraux) managed it in that visit to the penthouse. "It's burned."

    They don't make television like this anymore. Thankfully I can say I lived in an era when television understood how to entertain; Dallas, Dynasty, Falcon Crest.....

    ...
    and the delight of watching actors like Diahann Carroll.

    Thoughts are with her family and friends.

    R.I.P.

    Rest in peace, Miss Carroll. And thank you so much for Dominique Devereaux on "Dynasty" and "The Colbys".

    I'm a little shocked, that I just read this on the Barbra Streisand website that Diahann Carol had past away both where friends i gues, my condolences to her family and friends. I always loved Diahann on Dynasty and don't forget she was a amazing singer too.

    I was sorry to hear about Diahann's death. A very memorable star, who I mostly remember for being in DYNASTY as Blake and Ben's estranged sister. My condolences to her family, friends and co-workers. May Diahann Rest In Peace!
