I can't breathe. General Hospital has cast the mother of all prime time soap superbitches, Donna Mills, reports EW.com! The sexsational actress, who had the Seaview Circle cul-de-sac on and POPPIN' in the 80's as Knots Landing's habitual homewrecker, Abby Fairgate, has been tapped for a top secret role. READ MORE
Star-crossed lovers Gary and Valene Ewing (Ted Shackelford and Joan Van Ark) shared a reunion on Monday night's episode of TNT's Dallas that was more bitter than sweet. The way brilliant Dallas 2.0 writer Cynthia Cidre has it scripted, Gary and Val—who were blissfully reunited at the end of Knots Landing and still together in 1997 reunion movie Knots Landing: Back to the Cul-de-Sac—have now split, due to Gary falling off the wagon and bankrupting the couple!

I can't believe it will be 20 years this May since we had to say goodbye to our best girlfriends, emotional hayseed-turned-novelist Valene Ewing (Joan Van Ark); cul-de-sac Pollyanna Karen Fairgate MacKenzie (Michele Lee) and Karen's unstoppable, insatiable sister-in-law Abby Fairgate Cunningham Ewing Summer (Donna Mills) on Knots Landing.
Next Friday, Jan. 18 fans will be reunited with three of the stars from the long-running, smash CBS soap when The Talk hosts a Knots Landing Reunion Show! I have chills.
Julie Chen and Co. have to ask Mills about "The Abby Scale", the infamous measurement of bitch-goddessness that Abby deemed upstart rival Paige Mathison (Nicollette Sheridan) a mere six on! They also MUST dish on Knots' most iconic storyline, when Valene's newborn twins were stolen from her, courtesy of one of Abby's henchmen! Primetime suds fans, set your DVR NOW. Watch a clip from Karen's Pollyanna speech after the jump!
