Joan Collins

Postby GoogaMooga » 08 Oct 2021, 14:07

Joan Collins is 88 now. She still has a following on Instagram, where she poses in a bathing suit, showing off her lovely, sexy gams. Her current husband is only 56, talk about toy boy! Joan Collins became a cult phenomenon in the 1980s soap, "Dynasty", where she played the role of the scheming, bitchy Alexis. The show's success owed everything to her. But fans of British cinema will know that she already broke big in the 1950s, as the new "bad girl" in the juvenile delinquent dramas so popular then. Such is her cult status, that there is even a British drag artist stand-up comic, who goes by the name of "Joan Collins Fan Club". You know, when Marlene Dietrich came out of retirement to make a movie with David Bowie, she famously remarked, "The legs are the last thing to go on a lady".

That was Julian Clary and it was about 30 years ago, so not exactly current!

Julian Clary is a gay comedian, but not a drag artist. In th Eighties, he performed as the Joan Collins Fan Cub, a double act with his pet whippet, Fanny the Wonder Dog. Not that Fanny did much, she just sat there while he did his act: I have a record by 'them', a version of Leader of the Pack. He hasn't performed under that name - chosen when JC's popularity as a camp icon was at its Dynasty-inspired height - for a quarter century or more, but remains very popular under his own name.

Julian Clary - yes, that is his name. Was it really 30 years ago? My, how time flies!

I saw Clary as Leigh Bowery in Boy George’s not-too-bad-all musical Taboo in the 2000s.
As for Collins, she crops on Graham Norton’s show from time to time and is excellent value - she has stories about all the stars.

Joan maintains her lovely gams
By rubbing them with candied yams.
She also takes ‘youth meds’ by Pfizer
