Buddy Beaverhausen Random Thoughts: RIP, Jackie Collins
The author and younger sister of Joan Collins has, sadly, succumbed to a prolonged battle with breast cancer, according to UK's Daily Mail.
Former studio exec Sherry Lansing once accused Jackie of having "alcoholic ankles." No matter, Ms C triumphed with a string of best-selling books. She wrote two scripts based on her novels for her sister, Joan Collins, that led to the interest in casting Joan as Alexis Carrington on tv's Dynasty.
Joan Collins said today: "I am completely devastated. She was my best friend. She was a wonderful, brave and beautiful person and I love her."
Joan also spoke of her last dinner on the town with Jackie, saying, "We had a lovely dinner before she went off to Lalaland."
RIP, Jackie Collins, 77. You will be missed by many.
