80′s Soap Dynasty Movie In The Works

Shoulder pads and cat fights! Today marks the 30 year anniversary of Dynasty‘s television premiere, and the creators of the highly successful nighttime soap are marking the occasion with the promise of bringing the show to the big screen. Richard and Esther Shapiro told E! the movie will be a prequel to the series, set in the early 1960′s – back when young Blake Carrington was embroiled in a hot love affair with a certain Alexis Colby. Yowza!

The script hasn’t found a studio home yet, but we’re sure it will. The only thing we’re worried about is — can there be an actress alive that can do justice to the quintessential power-hungry queen bitch Alexis? Joan Collins‘ shoes are big ones to fill, indeed.

Lunch: The British Are Coming — Tomorrow!

— DIANE CLEHANE

We’re still exhausted from hob nobbing with last week’s overflow of A-listers, so we were almost glad things were a bit more subdued at 55th & Fifth today. It gave us a chance to catch up and chat with some our favorite regulars. Imagine my chagrin when I stopped by Matt Blank‘s table and Showtime’s CEO told me had I switched my weekly reservation to tomorrow, I’d be chatting with some of the biggest stars of his network. On Thursday, Matt and entertainment president Bob Greenblatt are hosting their own “British invasion” at table one when the entire glorious cast of The Tudors — the dreamy Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Peter O’Toole and Natalie Dormer will be breaking bread with the network’s other stars — including Tracy Ullman, whose show State of the Union, will premiere March 30, the same night as the new season of The Tudors. Thank God, something to watch! (I’ve been completely depressed over the fast approaching season finale of HBO’s In Treatment…) Also in attendance, says Matt, will be Billie Piper, who stars in — and we’re not kidding — the upcoming Secret Diaries of a Call Girl, which will premiere in June. Talk about timely. Perhaps the newly unemployed Eliot Spitzer can make a cameo appearance.

Here’s the rundown on today’s crowd:

1. Gerry Imber, Jerry Della Femina and the gang with Fox News’ Monica Crowley.

2. Showtime’s chairman and CEO Matt Blank with über producer Michael Davies.

3. “Mayor” Joe Armstrong and Glamoureditrix Cindi Leive (Glad you hear you’re a loyal “Lunch” reader!). The Mayor was celebrating with his friend Cindi over a glass of red wine — and a few asparagus spears — about her big news. Minutes before lunch, Cindi found out Glamour is a finalist for the fourth year in a row for the National Magazine Award for General Excellence. No woman’s magazine has ever been so honored! The worthy competitors: Time, People, National Geographic and Martha Stewart Living. Congrats! Before Cindi and Joe tucked into their lunch, we unanimously decided New York‘s Spitzer cover this week is one for the ages. Brilliant!

4. Norman Pearlstine and a young gent no one seemed to know …

Radar Fires Back At Page Six

This, then this:

Dear Corynne,

We’re really sorry we couldn’t make room for you at our launch party last week. It was a small venue, and, well, you know, fire codes and all. But we can’t blame you for trying so hard to get in—it was really fun! Ask everyone you know.

Also, we’re sorry we couldn’t help you out last summer, when you asked one of us if we could get you a job here, or even some freelance work. To be honest, based on your poorly written, error-prone work at Jossip, we really didn’t think you were qualified. But things worked out for you just fine, right?

Speaking of which, we also regret that our tidbit on your clumsy favor-trading almost got you fired from Page Six before you even had a chance to start working there. Look on the bright side: At least we didn’t actually get you canned, unlike some people. Oh, and sorry we couldn’t run a more flattering photo of you with that item (or, well, this one), as you shrilly begged us to after it was posted. Funny thing—we just couldn’t find one!

Anyway, our sincerest apologies for all of the above, and thanks for not letting any of it affect your very even-handed, fair-minded reporting. We’re a little surprised Richard found it worthy of a lede, though. Weren’t there any dead celebrity sightings or Joe Francis “We Hears” you could trick out?

Love,
Radar

P.S. Nice job recognizing our photo editor Greg Garry‘s voice. Guess all that time you spent answering his phone at Budget Living really paid off, huh?
