Michele Lee, Donna Mills & Joan Van Ark Talk Their ‘Sister’ Act and How They’re ‘Knot’ Done Yet

Photo: JPI

Who doesn’t love to see a Knots Landing (1979-1993) reunion,  especially when the three major leading ladies from the iconic primetime soap are seen together and step out in public!

Last night, the threesome of Michele Lee (Ex-Karen), Donna Mills (Ex-Abby) and Joan Van Ark (Ex-Valene) appeared in Hollywood at the the Hollywood Bowl The Jose Iturbi Foundation dinner, which promotes classical music to mainstream audiences, and awards grants to musicians, held before its concert.

It was there that these women chatted about their enduring friendship, and of course, missing that infamous cul-de-sac!  In a feature for ABC News via AP, with the fan favorites from ‘Knots’, Van Ark commented: “The truth is that we are, in fact, sisters. And when we’re together, it’s goofy and fun. When we have our three-way conversations, which might be just the three of us, we are truly joined soul-to-soul, heart-to-heart.”   The trio revealed that they always get together for dinner.

Coming up in December is what would be the 40th anniversary of the debut of Knots Landing. When asked if there might be another reunion show, Van Ark remarked that she would hope that Valene, Abby, and Karen would have had some ‘work done’, commenting: “They’ll all have facelifts, I hope.”

And if that wasn’t funny enough, Joan chimed in that there is a back-up plan if there is no reunion: “It’s a show that were going to call  ‘We’re ‘Knot’ Done Yet.’ And we’re not. We’re not.”

With female empowerment being a huge topic of our time, Donna Mills expressed how ‘badass” the ‘Knots’ gals were for their time: “We were so strong, our characters were so strong, that it was like, ‘Don’t mess with them.'”

So, would you like to see a ‘Knots’ 40th reunion special? Comment below.

WOW! The Knots trio of Michele Lee, Donna Mills, and Joan Van Ark are still hot as ever. Watched the show with my mom in the 80s and would love to see a reunion show only. It is time to catch up with one of CBS’s best nighttime dramas along with Dallas and Falcon Crest. Bring them back. Miss Donna on General Hospital! Miss the late Julie Harris.

I would love to see a “Knots” 40th reunion special. I was an avid fan of “Knots Landing” for the entire 14-year run, not allowing anyone to disturb me at 10:00 on Thursday nights. It was the best of all the popular night-time soaps that were on at the time. The show made you care about the characters and anxiously anticipate what was going to happen next in the cul-de-sac. I still miss the show and wish that all 14 seasons would come out on DVD. I have the first two seasons (that’s all there are), but things only got… Read more »

The actor also posted a special photo album of pics with his longtime on-screen partner and love interest, Arianne Zucker (Nicole).  In that, he posted this message: “To my Ride or Die partner Ari!! Never a dull moment, laughing or crying, she was the party, always with a smile! Love ya #ERICOLE”
