Welcome back A-List fans and horrified onlookers! It's the finale, and what better way to kick things off than Rodiney shirtless in a kitchen in Maine ringing a cowbell.
It's all downhill from there.
The other A-Listers assemble for their morning coffee and Derek comes traipsing in wearing a padded-shouldered, belted nightgown that Linda Evans might have rocked way back on Dynasty. Who knew Nolan Miller was designing menswear these days?
But then T.J. shows up, also in a traipsy little number, and I realize that their outfits are supposed to be a joke. It's sort of hard to tell with these guys, given their usual fashion choices.
After breakfast the boys go jet skiing out on the lake, but eventually Reichen and Rodiney commandeer the Sea-Doos for a grocery run. That leaves Derek, T.J., Austin and Ryan stranded ashore and talking smack about Rodiney.
So what else is new. »

One-time Hollywood 'It Girl' Ali MacGraw realised she was no longer considered a Tinseltown beauty when she was handed a hideous gown and placed at the back of a line for a TV gala.
She recalls, "Everybody you ever heard of (was there). They featured people we know and love - Linda Evans, Joan Collins, Angie Dickinson... and we were given dresses to wear and we were given ways of walking out.
"At the point I was given the worst dress and I was, like, number 299 walking across Radio City (Music Hall) I got it... I felt like a loser."
And MacGraw admits she started to think she was less than she had been when she was one of Hollywood's most in-demand stars a decade before.
She adds, "The ego is such a trick, I just lost myself in that moment of 'What do they think...?' Nobody was counting off the people. It was very self-centred.
"So I got really loaded that night and woke up next to somebody I hadn't planned to spend the night with... It was total ego."
Shortly after that moment, the actress retreated from Hollywood and set up home in New Mexico. »
The actress was 47 when she met and fell for new age musician Yanni, who was 12 years her junior, and she went under the knife three years later in an effort to stay looking young for him.
She tells the Globe, "I wanted to still look good because I was with him - and so I could feel better about the age difference.
"I was 50 and things were starting to fall and get creepy and I thought, 'You know, I could have a little help, and it'd be a good thing...'"
The romance didn't last, but Evans has no regrets about going under the knife for the love of a man: "I'm not sorry I did that." »
After having fun with candid post-bath photos she posed for earlier this year and posted on her Facebook.com page, she went even further for the TV cameras and agreed to be filmed getting up and getting ready.
Catching herself in the mirror as the cameras rolled she laughed, "Wow, do I look like s**t."
And she finished the shoot by filming herself in the bath after taking off her make-up. »
Oprah Winfrey welcomed to her show actresses Cybill Shepherd ("Moonlighting"), Linda Evans ("Dynasty") and Teri Hatcher ("Desperate Housewives") to discuss the issue of aging, beauty and what our society says to women as they grow older.
Teri Hatcher says of her now-infamous no-make-up pictures that circulated on the internet, "You feel like: 'Isn't that the person you want to be loved? That's the friend ... that's the partner I want to be in a relationship. That's the mom I want to be. Really, that's what's important."
"Listen, I love looking at all the glamorous pictures. That's fun too," she continues. "I think if we can accept the truth behind it and reveal the mystery, then we can enjoy both things."
Cybill Shepherd chimes in: "When I was on seven covers of Glamour magazine and I'd walk by all those newsstands every month and see my picture, I would go home and »

John Forsythe was a leading actor on stage, screen and television from the late 1940s, but was never seen in one of his best known roles. He lent his distinctive voice to the role of Charles Townsend, who sent an array of lovely agents on various cases by speaker phone in the Charlie’s Angels television series from 1976 to 1981. The Angels originally included Farrah Fawcett, Kate Jackson, and Jaclyn Smith, and were later joined by Cheryl Ladd, Shelley Hack, and Tanya Roberts. He reprised his role for feature film adaptations twenty years later, Charlie’s Angels (2000) and Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle (2003), starring Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu as a new generation of beautiful detectives. Forsythe became a silver-haired sex symbol in his sixties, when he starred as ruthless oil tycoon Blake Carrington in the ABC prime-time soap opera Dynasty from 1981 to 1989. He frequently found himself at the »
Joan Collins, John Forsythe, Linda Evans Dynasty John Forsythe, best known as the oil tycoon Blake Carrington on the television series Dynasty, died from complications of pneumonia on Thursday, April 1, at his home in Santa Ynez, a couple of hours northwest of Los Angeles. Forsythe, who was 92, had been suffering from cancer. Born John Lincoln Freund on Jan. 29, 1918, in Penn’s Grove, N.J., Forsythe began his acting career onstage in the 1940s, including a role in Arthur Miller’s All My Sons. He later replaced Henry Fonda in the smash hit Mister Roberts and starred as an Army officer in occupied Okinawa in Teahouse of the August Moon. In the Hollywood of the 1950s, Forsythe was less [...] »

Actor was also the voice of Charlie in Charlie's Angels
John Forsythe, the American actor who starred in the 1980s Us soap Dynasty and was the voice of Charlie in the TV series Charlie's Angels, has died at 92. He died of pneumonia at his home in Santa Ynez, California, after a long battle with cancer.
In a statement last night, his family said he died on Thursday, "as he lived his life … with dignity and grace". His career in film, theatre and television spanned more than five decades, but he is likely to be best remembered for playing Blake Carrington, the Denver oil tycoon in Dynasty, which ran from 1981-89. Joan Collins and Linda Evans played the women in his life and helped to make the actor a sex symbol in his 60s.
Forsythe won three Emmy nominations for his portrayal of the conniving and debonair Carrington, although he never won the award. »

It's a mystery worthy of investigation by Charlie's angels: Why didn't John Forsythe – one of TV's most popular, respected and enduring stars – ever win TV's top award? Prior to his death today at age 92, John Forsythe had been nominated for — and lost — four Emmys. Three of those bids were for starring as Blake Carrington, a debonair oil tycoon pursued by dueling divas (Joan Collins, Linda Evans) on "Dynasty." He lost best drama actor to Daniel J. Travanti of "Hill Street Blues" in 1982, Ed Flanders of "St. Elsewhere" in 1983 and Tom Selleck of "Mangum, P.I." in 1984. When John Forsythe was nominated back in 1953 it was for a »
John Forsythe, whose decades-long TV career stretched from the late 1940s through the early '90s, has died.
The 92-year-old Forsythe died late Thursday (April 1) of complications from pneumonia in Santa Ynez, Calif., TMZ reports. He had been battling cancer for the past year.
Forsythe was a budding stage actor when he enlisted in the Army during World War II. He acted in the Army Air Corps' stage show "Winged Victory" and had bit parts in a couple of war films in the early 1940s. Following his discharge from the Army, he was a member of the initial class at the Actors Studio. He appeared in a number of anthology shows in the '50s (and starred in Alfred Hitchcock's movie "The Trouble with Harry") before landing a breakout role in the sitcom "Bachelor Father," which ran for five seasons starting in 1957.
He worked steadily through the 1960s and »
Forsythe died Thursday in Santa Ynez, Calif., of complications from pneumonia after a yearlong struggle with cancer. He owned a ranch in the area north of Santa Barbara.
With his smooth manner and silver mane, Forsythe exuded paternal power and iron-fisted control on ABC's "Dynasty" as a ruthless Denver oil magnate who dealt not only with the high-stakes vagaries of the oil business but with the even more volatile eruptions of his competitive womenfolk, embodied by Linda Evans' good-girl purity and Joan Collins' bad-girl sexuality.
For his portrayal of Carrington, Forsythe earned two Golden Globes and three Emmy nominations. So popular was the show that in 1985, Forsythe became the spokesperson for a line of men's cologne called "Carrington." He »

In the '50s and '60s, TV westerns often dominated the primetime schedules, but by the early '70s, they all seemed go by the wayside. Attempts to revive them haven't been met with much success, save for the Maverick feature film starring Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster, and James Garner.
Now The Big Valley, the western series that launched the careers of Linda Evans and Lee Majors, is going to take a stab at a remake, with Susan Sarandon, Ryan Phillipe, Richard Drefuss, and Bruce Dern in key roles.
The Big Valley originally ran on ABC from 1965 to 1969. Barbara Stanwyck plays a widowed matriarch running a ranch in California. She has three sons and a daughter (Richard Long, Peter Breck, Charles Briles, and Linda Evans). Her late husband's illegitimate son (Lee Majors) joins the clan as the series begins. The family's youngest son, »
Ryan Phillippe was down at South By Southwest last weekend to promote "MacGruber," in which he plays a relatively straight role to Will Forte's MacGyver-like running joke. While chatting MTV's Josh Horowitz up with fellow star Kristen Wiig about the film, Phillippe mentioned another project that he'll soon get started on.
"I think I'm doing a Western in May, with Susan Sarandon, Billy Bob Thornton, Richard Dreyfuss [and] Bruce Dern," he said. "It's called 'The Big Valley,' which was a [television] series in the '60s, and so it's sort of based on that."
Of the director, Phillippe said, "He's a young guy and this is his first film, so you wouldn't know him yet." This is at odds with the movie's IMDb listing, which as Daniel Adams down as the writer and director of "Big Valley." While he's only directed a handful of films, his first was 1989's "A Fool and His Money, »

Susan Sarandon as Victoria Barkley. Sarandon won’t make me forget Barbara Stanwyck, but that would be a great casting coup. I’m talking about a big-screen remake of the 1960s Western series Big Valley, in which Stanwyck played the widow matriarch of the Barkley Ranch in California’s San Joaquin Valley of the 1870s. Her grown children were Richard Long, Peter Breck, and a pre-Dynasty Linda Evans, and there was also a pre-Six Million Dollar Man Lee Majors as Big Mama Barkley’s stepson. According to The Hollywood Reporter / Reuters (via Cinematical), Sarandon is "in talks" to play the tough widow who feared nothing. Kate Edelman Johnson, daughter of one of the show’s creator, producer Louis F. Edelman (writer A.I. Bezzerides was [...] »

With CBS Films working on a feature film version of Gunsmoke, it seems Hollywood has classic '60s TV Westerns squarely in its crosshairs.
The latest Western that's headed for the big screen is The Big Valley, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the 1965-69 series that starred Barbara Stanwyck, Richard Long, Peter Breck, Lee Majors and Linda Evans.
According to the trade, Susan Sarandon is in talks to play the role of Victoria Barkley, the character originated by Stanwyck in the ABC television series.
Stanwyck's Victoria Barkley was the matriarch of a ranching family in California's San Joaquin Valley during the 1870s. Together with her three sons — one of whom was illegitimate — and her daughter, Victoria Barkley ran the ranch, assisted those in need, and often found herself embroiled in controversy of one kind or another.
