Bring back the bling.

Lovely to talk to Emma Samms today. It's been a while, but I first remember talking to Emma when she was a new star of Dynasty (and then The Colby's) back in the 80s. It was then her dream to start up a charity making ill children's dreams come true, in tribute to her late brother, Jamie.

That charity, the Starlight Foundation has since grown and grown, and is continually fulfilling her dream. Her brother would be proud.

Meanwhile - what of reviving those glamour days, of Dynasty and Dallas? They've brought back one - why not the other?

Nah, says Emma. Dallas hasn't exactly wowed audiences in the states. Not once everyone realised how old they'd all become. And anyway, no-one's got the budget anymore.

Perhaps that's a blessing. But I miss those days of shoulder-padded glamour.

    Was so funny to see some of the earlier episodes of Dallas (the original series!) that have been recently released on DVD - can't believe we were all so hooked on those series now - shoulder pads and all!
