    Default Joan Collins was accused of drinking alcohol on the set of 'Dynasty'

    03-05-06

    Another 'Dynasty' soap opera

    It wouldn't be "Dynasty" if Alexis weren't up to something.

    But Joan Collins insists that she's not the villain in a fight over the show's upcoming reunion special.

    A source close to several cast members of the hit '80s soap claims Collins threatened to pull out of the show over a beef with the actor who played her husband.

    "She said she wouldn't appear if Michael Nader [who played Alexis Carrington Colby etc.'s third spouse, Dex Dexter] was on the reunion," claims the source.

    The actress was miffed at remarks Nader made to the press about her backstage behavior. On Friday, Collins herself got on the phone to put the record straight.

    "The truth about what happened is that Mr. Nader accused me of drinking alcohol on the set," she told me.

    "At the time, I was pretty angry about it. Because you do not accuse an actress of drinking on the set, and I would never, ever drink on the set.

    "So when the producers [of the reunion] said, 'Is there anybody you'd rather not talk to,' I said, 'Well, I wouldn't be thrilled to talk to this person. But I will.' But then it was their choice that they didn't."

    Producers of the reunion special produced by former "Happy Days" star Henry Winkler did not respond by press time to a request for comment. But Nader's agent, Rosanne Quezado, seemed very annoyed by the question of whether her client would appear on the show.

    "I have nothing to say," she said, before hanging up. I kind of took that to be a "no."

    Isn't Nader himself a washed up (ex-) coke addict?

    Sued


    On March 29 actor Michael Nader, 57, who played Count Dimitri Marick on ABC's All My Children for 10 years, filed a $32 million lawsuit accusing the network of breach of contract. Nader alleges that ABC fired him but kept him from working elsewhere after he was arrested for cocaine possession and underwent rehab in February 2001. ABC had no comment.

    No Holds Barred


    Michael Nader goes on the record about his arrest, those HIV rumors and his lawsuit against ABC.

    By Elaine G. Flores


    It's been more than two years since Michael Nader's (ex-Dimitri, All My Children) fall from grace. On February 24, 2001, he was caught with cocaine in an illegal social club and charged with possession and -- more scandalous -- selling. But the charges were downgraded to misdemeanor possession, and Nader was ordered by the court to undergo drug rehabilitation. He did so. Months later, Nader was summoned to a meeting with ABC executives, who told him that they wouldn't be rehiring him. Now, the actor is in the headlines again: He's suing his former employers for $32 million under the Americans With Disabilities Act. On a recent afternoon, Nader told all about the tumultuous past couple of years and the reasoning behind his lawsuit.

    "At the time, I was pretty angry about it. Because you do not accuse an actress of drinking on the set, and I would never, ever drink on the set."
    Meanwhile, in a TV studio 6 miles away,
    ...We also have it on good authority that once the cameras were off,
    Tara Reid rushed to the bathroom and desperately plunged a syringe full of
    cocaine-laced Long Island Iced Tea into her ass.
    ...How times have changed.

    HWBL: ^He sure is! I remember hearing that his behavior was VERY erratic when he was doing daytime soaps...I think it was "All My Children"? The buzz at the time was that he was VERY bizarre...

    At any rate, I am sure the cast didn't want to be around such a loose cannon!

    Good for her! Hope she drank her face off on the set! F-em all!!!

    And that Nader is no good at all, as it's been pointed out. Perhaps someone is trying to deflect from his own issues, so that is why he brought up the drinking thing. What a jerk. WHO CARES.
    I think it was well known that Larry Haggman drank his face off on the Dallas set...so much so that he got a new liver!
