Who are the 60 Greatest TV Villains of All-Time? TV Guide Magazine's Bruce Fretts and Matt Roush listed their picks for the dubious distinctions in the March 25-April 7 issue of the magazine.
It should come as no surprise that many suds evil-doers made the cut, including Dallas' late, great J.R. Ewing (Larry Hagman) at No.1; Dynasty devil Alexis Colby (Joan Collins) at No. 7 and Dark Shadows' Barnabas Collins (Jonathan Frid) at No. 8. READ MORE
No. 5: Hunter Tylo vs. Katherine Kelly Lang, The Bold and the Beautiful
Their characters, Dr. Taylor Hayes (Hunter Tylo) and Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang), have fought over the affections of fickle fashion designer Ridge Forrester (Ronn Moss) since 1990 on CBS Daytime's international hit serial The Bold and the Beautiful. However, Moss' recent exit from the series—after 25 years—inadvertently led to a real-life Twitter dust up between Tylo and Lang!
When a pot-stirring fan tweeted Lang accusations of Tylo allegedly failing to stop her fans from spreading "vicious rumors/gossip" about Lang, the blonde soap beauty called her brunette co-star out, tweeting: "Hunter, why don't you talk to me?" Ouch!
Tylo responded quickly, denying the messy fan's claims and asked Lang not to get "caught up in the chaos." The fact that Lang was so quick to believe an accusation from a fan makes you wonder, what is really going on up in the House of Forrester? READ MORE
Take this one with a grain of salt — make that a whole shaker! The National Enquirer is reporting that, on the heels of the success of TNT's Dallas reboot, there are now talks of doing one for classic, 80's sudser Dynasty! Said veteran Enquirer gossip hound Mike Walker:
TV moguls are already huddled in top-secret talks with tempestuous Denver oil “Dynasty” divas JOAN COLLINS and LINDA EVANS – begging them to get glam again in those magnificent, iconic costumes and scratch each other’s eyes out encore!
Said My Dyna-Spy: “Joan and Linda are really excited about reviving ‘Dynasty.’ The show looks like a definite go as producers work out the details!” READ MORE
Jewelry designer Alexis Bittar has named Dynasty super-diva Joan Collins as the face of his spring campaign and believes Collins deserves more credit for 80's fashion.
I’m thrilled to have her represent the line because she deserves credit (and hasn’t received it) for much of the 80’s fashion that is mimicked today. When I think “Opulence”, I think “Joan Collins and Dynasty”. Having used younger models in the past I liked that she was older and more mature. She’s the perfect person to represent the brand, company and me.
Somewhere Linda Evans just bit the head off a puppy. For more on Alexis Bittar's new campaign featuring Collins go here.

Dear Mr. Valentini,
I love One Life to Live, I really do. I haven't written much recently about your show on Daytime Confidential because there is so much going on at any given time that it can be hard to get a handle on which areas to focus. This is not a bad thing. You and your head writer Ron Carlivati have fashioned a fast moving, entertaining, and thoroughly engaging hour of daytime television that has catapulted it to the top of ABC's afternoon lineup. Bravo! There is far more good than bad on OLTL and in this case, no news can usually be good news. There is, however, one little thing that bugs me and it occurs to me that you — and only you — can fix it:
For the love of Harding Lemay, please put a merciful end to the disastrously choreographed fights between Gigi & Stacy! READ MORE
