Poor child. Claudia was such an uninteresting character. They paired her with everyone but Fallon and she still never got legs. When they ran out of ideas they’d make her Kimberly/Melrose crazy. They often ran out of ideas.


You are hilarious but it’s so true. The character and actress were dishwater dull and back then if you didn’t record it on the VCR there was NO FF PERIOD!!

This is a reboot though. Who knows, maybe they are aware how paper thin boring she was and they’ve made some much needed changes to her character and her story. I’m personally reserving judgment until I’ve at least watched the first episode.

Good for her but Dynasty should had been a continuation of the original instead of a reboot…been there done that…hope it goes for her sake and all but i have fond memories of the original and wont be watching the remake!!!

I agree, wish they went the Dallas route of continuation, except for the telenovela they tried to turn it into and hopefully they would have someone with a strong sense of the history of the show.

I like Brianna, but I don’t know about the reboot.


Of all the characters NOT to bring back for the reboot, Matthew and Claudia Blaisdel (and daughter Lindsay) would be at the top of my list.

I liked the original Dynasty and the actors and actresses. Not interested in the new one at all!! It will never come close to the original. Because no John Collins, Linda Evans, Etc. Need I say more.

I find this reincarnation of Dynasty to be so confusing. They aren’t picking up where it left off. They aren’t going back in time to the beginning. It doesn’t make sense.


When I faithfully watched the original “Dynasty,” I was always Team Krystle, even though I appreciated the entertainment value of the work of Joan Collins as Alexis. Further, I was also Team Claudia! As played by Pamela Bellwood, Claudia was sensitive, fragile, and dynamic — an unsung heroine of the show. I am glad this important character will be part of the reboot. I suspect that Brianna Brown will do a fine job.

Mark Y

I completely agree with you about Claudia. Very well said. She was always one of my favorite characters.


Thank you, Mark! Glad you liked Claudia, too. Take care, Friend!


James…I get what you’re saying here, Brother. I really do. But, remember…the original Claudia (originally played by Pamela Bellwood) was truly ONE OF A KIND!!!!! So, therefore, Brianna Brown better look like bringing her A-GAME (or whatever) to the Dynasty reboot.

Just saying……….

Later, Brother.


Aww she could have been Fallon


Whoa!! That Claudia chick was whacked! This one has good experience at playing a nutjob. But this “reboot” is going to tank after one season. It is not focusing in on any of the fun and frivolity of the original series. It is trying to be politically and racially diverse, dark and edgy, while using the Dynasty name and similarities. The Dallas reboot worked because it continued the narrative of the original hit and included the REAL characters.


She is hot! I hope they dont F up this reboot like Dallas!


Shes cute and all but have they hired one actor for this that can actually act?


I have no doubt in Brianna’s ability to work hard and do a good job as an actress. This reboot though – ugh! Just make a new prime time soap or do what they did with Dallas, continue it not remake it. I have no plans to watch.

I want to know who they are getting to play Diahann Carol’s role.


Nicollette Sheridan Made Series Regular On CW’s Dynasty!

If you haven’t caught Nicollette Sheridan’s take on the role of uber-bitch, Alexis Carrington on CW’s Dynasty, you better make sure to tune-in to the second season of the sudsy drama!

Now comes word via TV Line, that Sheridan has been upped to series regular on the reboot, which is great news for her fans, who fell in love with her as Paige Mathison on Knots Landing, then as Edie Britt on Desperate Housewives, and now all over again as Alexis.

Nicollette came on to the canvas midway through the first season in the highly sought after role, originally played by Joan Collins. (more…)

DYNASTY Season Finale: Burning Down The House!

Any soap opera lover should have been drooling over the season finale of CW’s Dynasty. Filled with every signature staple of the genre, and delivered in delicious fashion, the episode left us hungry for what’s in store for when the series returns for its second season.

The season finale was filled with multiple takeovers of Carrington Atlantic, one coup led by Fallon (Elizabeth Gilles) and another by their newest relative, Jeff Colby (Sam Adegoke) and yet there was another one going on with Alexis (Nicollette Sheridan) using Hank (Brent Antonello) to play the long lost son, while he voted later against Blake (Grant Show), Steven and Fallon. You need a scorecard to follow this, yet the double-cross of a double-cross was fun to watch.

The centerpiece of the episode was Steven (James Mackay) and Sammy Jo’s (Rafael de la Fuente) wedding filled with unexpected guests and shockers, chief among them a visit by soap vet Kelly Rutherford, who plays Melissa Daniels. As his wedding is about to start, Melissa shows up to tell Steven that she is pregnant with his child.

Elsewhere, when Cristal (Nathalie Kelly) who has already had it with Blake and feels trapped in a marriage to him, or is she really feeling that or enjoying the cat and mouse power game, figures out that Alexis has been sleeping with Hank, angling this whole takeover from her angle. When she confronts Alexis, finally the long-awaited mega catfight on steroids occurs (watch it after the jump) and the two women battle it out, until Alexis locks up Cristal.

When Anders (Alan Dale) finds her there and goes back to get the key, none other than unstable Claudia Blaisdel (Brianna Brown) arrives toting a gun. As she is about to have her long-awaited showdown with her nemesis the image of her former husband the late Matthew Blaisdel (Nick Wechsler) keeps coming up. She sees him in her mind, but she actually shoots Cristal and leaves her there to die. (more…)
