Chronologically Challenged

The ever-surprising Dame Joan Collins takes on the role of pundit today, decrying in marywhitehousian tones the plague of vulgarity on British television (Pot? Kettle called - you're black.).

What makes the column stand out for me, though, is this: "my great-grandmother was, of course, a Victorian, and so my mother was brought up with strict moral values."

Honey, my great-grandmother was a Victorian. Joan Collins's great-grandmother must have been positively Elizabethan.


  1. I love it when you're insightful AND snarky.

  2. I read that when Joan first came to Hollywood she was known as "The British Open."
