Yesterday, Savannah Guthrie and Natalie Morales prepared for 'Today''s (weekdays, 9AM ET on NBC) interview with former 'Dynasty' star Linda Evans by staging a hair-pulling catfight of their own. Wednesday, Evans stopped by the studio herself to relive the classic scene with Ann Curry.

Curry asked if it was hard for Evans to be so hateful to Joan Collins, and Evans seemed taken aback by the implication. "I love to do stunts ... Barbara Stanwick got me involved in stunts when I did 'Big Valley,' so this was a lot of fun, it has nothing to do with hate, it was just choreographed," she protested.

TV hosts will normally do anything to ensure their hair doesn't get ruffled. But to prepare for their interview tomorrow with former 'Dynasty' star Linda Evans, 'Today' (weekdays, 9AM ET on NBC) co-hosts Natalie Morales and Savannah Guthrie got into an old-fashioned, hair-pulling catfight ... in jest, of course.

After playing footage of the classic 'Dynasty' department store throw-down between Evans and Joan Collins, Guthrie and Morales were inspired to fake slap, hair-pull and strangle each other.

"It looks like so much fun!" Guthrie exclaimed, fighting through laughter.

Joan CollinsEarlier this year the much-vaunted 'Dallas' reboot became a reality. Now, in news to gladden the hearts of fans of shoulder-pads, sequins and shoving matches everywhere, Joan Collins has said that she'd love to return to TV for a second round of 'Dynasty,' should the opportunity arise.

And that's not all. She reportedly let slip that there may even be a script in place. According to 'The Sun,' Collins said she's been in "constant contact" with 'Dynasty' creator Esther Shapiro, "and apparently they've written a script."

But, Collins added, "I can't tell you anything about it -- it's top, top secret. ... I would love to be Alexis again because it was a great role."

Susan Sarandon May Star in Big Screen 'Big Valley'

The Big ValleyI'm never quite sure what to make of big screen versions of TV shows. Sometimes they work ('The Brady Bunch,' 'Mission: Impossible'), but more often they don't (too many to list here), because it's as if a show's plot or theme is necessarily great, it's the actors that were in the show and the time when the show aired. You can't recreate that with a big name star and some "nostalgia" factor.

The latest show to get that big screen treatment is 'The Big Valley,' the western that aired on ABC in the mid-60s. It starred Barbara Stanwyck, Richard Long, Linda Evans, and Lee Majors. Kate Edelman Johnson, daughter of show co-creator Louis, is planning to do a movie based on the show and The Hollywood Reporter reports that Sarandon is in talks to play Victoria Barkley, the role Stanwyck played in the show.

If there is a 'Big Valley' movie and she does star in it, then she has to be credited on screen as MISS Susan Sarandon.

Mrs. Garrett has fighting words for Joan Collins

Charlotte RaeThere's a quality I really admire in older women. It's the "I no longer give a crap what you think of me" quality. They've seen it all, done it all, been there and back and have no reason not to speak their minds. It's so damn refreshing in a world of publicists and politesse to hear some old curmudgeon honestly and blithely offer their withering assessment of the world.

The now 80 year-old Charlotte Rae, television's Mrs. Garrett of Facts of Life fame, gave a mouthful to reporters on the red carpet of the LA premiere of Joan Collins and Linda Evans' theatrical turn in Legends. When asked about Collins, Rae responded, "Joan Collins is a bitch! There's no doubt about it. Everyone says she's an extremely difficult person." The Insider sprung the tape of Rae's remarks on Collins in a backstage interview. Collins reply: "Who is this cow!" I don't know what it is about these catty old broads, but I love them.

Cat fight tonight! Joan Collins and Linda Evans reunite

by Julia Ward, posted Nov 25th 2006 3:28PM
Legends Collins and EvansThe bitches are back. Dynasty's Krystle Carrington and Alexis Carrington Colby have been reunited for a nightly cat fight in the touring production of playwright James Kirkwood's Legends. The production has settled down for a two-week stint in Washington DC, but you can expect to see it on the road over the next several months.

Former 80s primetime soap stars Evans and Collins star as aging movie star rivals clinging to what remains of their fading glamor. The play, itself, is notoriously lousy. Carol Channing and Mary Martin starred in a mid-80s tour of the show, which was more famous for the backstage rather than on-stage drama. None of that really matters though.
