‘Dynasty’ Season Two Key Art Unveiled Featuring The ‘Real’ Cristal

When season two of the CW reboot of Dynasty begins, as previously noted, there will be a new Cristal Carrington!

On the season one finale, Cristal played by Nathalie Kelley was both shot in the stomach and then trapped in an inferno!

Viewers were informed by Kelley herself back in June that she was not returning to the show.

As it turns out, when season 2 kicks-off, the real Cristal will be in the mix when Anna-Brenda Contreras makes her debut.

The CW series released new key art today for season 2 with the slogan: “Where there’s a will, there’s a war.”  Main cast members: Elizabeth Gillies (Fallon) Nicollette Sheridan (Alexis), Grant Show (Blake) and Contreras are featured.

So, what will you be checking out the new season of Dynasty when it debuts on Friday, October 12th (8PMEST/7PMXCST)?

I may be missing something, but I don’t understand what you mean by the “real Cristal.” Finally, in another thread (re: Paul Davidson), I have been chatting with others here about the disrespect shown for older actors (aka veterans) in favor of younger players, in an attempt to save money and/or target the younger demographic. This Dynasty reboot has not only jumbled race/ethnicity/gender of characters from the original series, it is also making these iconic characters much younger, again evidently starkly appealing to the younger demographic. It’s just an observation…but I would also point out that, once upon a time,… Read more »

Thanks for your reply, Ryan. Somehow I must have missed that plot point.

hi Jamesj75,
the coveted target demo are generally composed of the desirable younger —
Young adult viewers have been TV’s target demographic for decades, because they’re thought to have less brand loyalty and more disposable income.
In television, most key demographic groups consist of adults who are somewhere in age between 18 and 49.
So, are the ages of actors they want to see and who they relate to.

And the times move on…

Thanks for your reply, su000! I realize your points are all valid and well delineated. I just believe there is room for everyone in the tent: young, old, and in between!

Yep. I’ll be watching. Perplexed by this “real Cristal” twist so we’ll see how it plays out and then make my call. However, the writers have their work cut out for them. I liked Nathalie’s Cristal. Bringing in a new actress and not going the old plastic surgery route is unusual. I’ll give them credit for skipping that old plot device. But from what I read this new casting is a lot more complex. Good luck to all.

Anne Heche Memoir ‘Call Me Anne’ to Be Released Posthumously

Following the tragic death of Daytime Emmy-winning actress, Anne Heche (ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World), now comes word that the follow-up to her 2001 memoir Call Me Crazy will be released in January of 2023 posthumously.

Independent publisher, Start, shared an excerpt of the upcoming memoir, Call Me Anne, this week with the AP and Publisher’s Weekly.  The book’s publisher, Jarred Weisfeld, signed a deal with Heche back in May, and shared that she had turned it into a manuscript shortly before she died.

In a statement, Weisfield shared, “Anne was an inspiration to the LGBTQ+ community and beyond. This book deserves to be read by all of her fans. We are grateful to have the opportunity to share her message with the world. While we are very sad that Anne isn’t here to see the book be published we know it’s what she would have wanted.”

During her podcast “Better Together” with co-host Heather Duffy, Heche had mentioned she was writing a sequel to her original memoir, and that ‘some of the truths’ about her relationship with Ellen DeGeneres would be revealed.

Ellen and Anne’s relationship in Hollywood in the late 90’s, ultimately led to her being blacklisted in Hollywood due to the twosome being one of the first openly gay couples in Tinseltown.  In an excerpt from Call Me Anne, Heche shares, “I was labeled ‘outrageous’ because I fell in love with a woman. I had never been with a woman before I dated Ellen.”

In a epilogue to the book, Heather Duffy expressed that Anne’s, “wish was that this book could help others get to the other side of pain and learn about her philosophy, which allowed her to remain in a life where she woke up each day looking for opportunities to find joy and spread kindness. So, in some ways, knowing her the way I do and knowing that spreading her message of kindness is what mattered to her most, she would be content that the last thing she worked on was this book.”

Anne passed away on August 14th at the age of 53, after being taken off life-support from injuries sustained from her fiery car crash into a home that eventually took her life.

What do you think about Anne’s second memoir coming in 2023? Will you be intrigued to see what she had to share? Let us know in the comment section. 

In case you missed it, Heche discusses with Michael Fairman in a virtual interview two years ago, about her time with DeGeneres and how it impacted her getting work in Hollywood and more.  You can watch it below.

In a major moment during the ceremony, Sheryl Lee Ralph won her first Emmy ever for her role in Abbott Elementary in the Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series category.

Ralph became only the second black actress to win in the supporting actress category in 35 years – the first being none other than Days of our Lives’ Jackée Harry (Paulina) who won for her performance in 1987 for 227.

After Sheryl sang when she hit the stage to accept the award, she clarified what she was singing about adding: “I’ve been singing that song for years because I think of myself as an artist as a woman, especially as a woman of color … I’m an endangered species. I don’t sing any victim song. I’m a woman. I’m an artist, and I know where my voice belongs. And there’s so many young actors, artists, even kids that think they know what they’re going to do in life, find your voice and put it where it belongs.”

Lizzo shared: “I’m very emotional. The trophy is nice, but my emotion is for these people who are on the stage with me. The stories that they shared, they’re not that unique. They just don’t get the platform. Telling stories, let’s just tell more stories. When I was a little girl, all I wanted to see was me in the media, someone fat like me, Black like me, beautiful like me.  If I could go back and tell little Lizzo something, I’d be like, ‘You’re going to see that person, but Bitch, it’s gonna have to be you.’”

In the top show categories: Succession won Drama Series, Ted Lasso, Comedy Series and The White Lotus, Outstanding Limited Series. You can check out the full winners circle in all categories here.

Eva LaRue’s Stalker Sentenced to 40 Months in Prison

In a harrowing situation spanning 12 years, a man who threatened former All My Children, Santa Barbara, and Y&R favorite, Eva LaRue (ex-Maria, ex- Margot, ex-Celeste) and her daughter, Kaya was sentenced to 40 months in prison.

James David Rogers, 58, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge John A. Kronstadt for over a decade of threatening letters and phone calls about torture, rape and death to LaRue and her daughter.

Rogers had pleaded guilty in April to two counts of mailing threatening communications, one count of threats by interstate communications and two counts of stalking.  According to court documents, all of this began in March 2007 until Rogers eventually was arrested in November 2019.  At the beginning of his stalking spree, LaRue’s daughter, Kaya was only five-years-old.

According to Deadline, Eva gave a “tearful victim impact statement, telling the judge in L.A. federal court that she has undergone therapy since the harassment began in order to deal with feelings of fear and paranoia.”  She added, “We didn’t know if he would show up on our doorstep. We will think about him for a lifetime. The fear is with me forever.”

The judge has ordered Rogers to self surrender on October 12th to begin his sentence at a federal prison in Ohio.

Eva won a Daytime Emmy back in 2020 for her guest star turn on The Young and the Restless, and is best-known to primetime viewers for her role in CSI: Miami.
