November 2002, Joan at NYC's Chambers Hotel to celebrate the release of her new novel Star Quality.
Pictured from Joan's right to left the Guiding Light male cast members- David Andrew Macdonald (Edmund), Grant Aleksander (Phillip) and Ron Raines (Alan).

Ivana Trump was at the same party, pictured with Joan.


Starting today, I will be looking back on some of the many cuttings of Joan I have collected over the years. This one dates back to 1976/1977.

The Collins Girls Have Got Their Man
Jackie and Joan have found their man! Back on November in these gossipy pages, Globe told the tale of the sisters Joan and Jackie Collins' search for a devilishly handsome fellow to star in "The Stud" written by Jackie (right) and starring Joannie (left).
Well, 29-year-old British Actor Oliver Tobias fills the bill.

JContheCover: Chigago Tribune (1984)

Our first magazine for 2011 is this TV guide published by Chigaco Tribune in December 1984, featuring Joan with Michael Nader who had just joined the cast of Dynasty as Farnsworth "Dex" Dexter, and inside an article, 'Michael Nader: Don't call him Mr. Alexis'


Joan as Amanda in Noel Coward's famous play Private Lives. This photograph is from the US tour which followed her successful run in London's West End.

Pictured are her co-stars, Edward Duke and Simon Jones who replaced Keith Baxter as Elyot.

Below is a handbill from the US tour.

Other photos and items from both the UK and US tours can be found on my website.
