Hollywood Legend Joan Collins Is Livid at ‘Partridge Family’ Star Shirley Jones — Here’s Why

Aug 1, 2013  •  Post A Comment

"Dynasty" star Joan Collins is angry with fellow television veteran Shirley Jones, with the problem stemming from a recently published memoir by Jones that recounts her first meeting Collins in the late 1960s, TMZ.com reports.

The book says Jones and her then-husband Jack Cassidy were at the home of Collins and Tony Newley for dinner, and afterwards Newley proposed they strip down and watch porn together, the story says.

"It was clear what Tony was leading up to — swinging," Jones writes.

Collins, 80, is reportedly accusing Jones of libel and insisting the story is inaccurate, the piece says. Collins has also reportedly sent Jones a cease-and-desist letter, demanding that the book be pulled from stores. Jones, 79, is sticking by the story, the piece adds.

  1. Another case of, “He said, she said”, or in this case, “She said, she said” that can never be proved by either party.

  2. I believe the story 100%. There’s no reason for Shirley to make it up or exaggerate or lie. She didn’t say they had a foursome, she said that was the implication and she did not want to participate. As for Joan Collins, there’s a reason this biotch never won an Emmy for her role on “Dynasty.” She wasn’t acting.
