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

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.

A well-done reunion would be terrific!

Knots was my favorite of all the nighttime soaps back in the day…Would love to have like a TV movie but like Phil said, NO reboot…BTW, I want Nicollette Sheridan with them…

Knots was my favorite too, followed closely by Melrose Place lol!

I also liked Melrose Place…You have good taste Phil, lol.

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.

Yes

They should do a stage act together spoofing their characters, Hollywood ect…it could be a hoot..call it Nuts Landing-lol

Please come back

I would love to see a Knots Landing reunions I love Miss Donna Mills Abby Ewing and the rest of the cast please bring it back I will definitely watch this one

Yes. Yes. And more yes!

Absolutely love to see it back. I would love to see the ‘old’ shows …they repeat everything else, why not Knots, Original DALLAS and Falcon Crest. I remember watching all three and loving them!

Dallas and Knots didn’t do well when they tried to show them years later as repeats.

Yes! Knots landing is my favorite TV show of all time. I would love to see the girls from the cul-de-sac again.

best written prime time soap ever

My all time favorite show! I would love a reunion!!!

Yes, all we need now are Kevin Dobson & Ted Shackelford.

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 better after that. It isn’t fair to the show’s many fans to leave us hanging out here ready to lay down our money to relive those memorable episodes. So glad to know that these ladies are still such good friends and are making nostalgic public appearances. Please come to Indiana!

Yes I would watch a reunion of Knots Landing. I loved that show and those girls!

Absolutely, I would love to see a reunion.

Yes, loved that show!

Justin Hartley Talks on Wife and Y&R Alum, Sofia Pernas’, Upcoming Role in ‘Tracker’

Coming up, you can catch two Y&R alums for the price of one in the sixth episode of the first season of the new CBS drama, Tracker.

Justin Hartley (ex-Adam Newman, Y&R) stars as Colter Shaw and in the premise of Tracker, Colter grew up in a survivalist family, helps private citizens and law enforcement find missing loved ones. There is also a mystery involving the death of his father at the hands of some government agency, or possibly his older brother, when Colter was 15 that plays into the backstory.

In a recent interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Hartley reveals that his real-life wife, Sofia Pernas, who played the role of Marissa Sierras on The Young and the Restless, will be appearing on the show.

Hartley previewed Sofia’s appearance, “Sofia is coming in episode six. She is a blast from the past. Colter had a relationship with her, and they were kind of in the reward business together. And then she sold him down the river. It wasn’t great. And so, they had a schism that happened in their relationship, and she comes back into his life for a certain reason and they’re forced to work together in a way to get to a common goal.”

While Justin and Sofia are happily married in real-life, from Hartley’s tease, it doesn’t look like their Tracker alter-egos will end up the same way! Justin shared, “By the time you get to episode six, you will see this is outside of Colter’s comfort zone. There is obviously an attraction there, but something that happened that is very sad.”

The episode featuring Sofia entitled “Lexington” will air sometime in March. We will keep you updated as to the specific date when it becomes available. Make sure to watch Tracker Sunday night on CBS and streaming on Paramount+ beginning at 9pm ET.

Looking forward to seeing Justin and Sofia together on-screen on ‘Tracker’? Comment below.
