JACKIE COLLINS HAS NO USE FOR PASSIVE WOMEN

Sisters Jackie Collins and Joan Collins had dinner together at Craig’s this week. Since Jackie has written so many sexy Hollywood novels, people always ask her what she thinks of “Fifty Shades of Grey.” Jackie says she admires “Fifty Shades” amazing success, but says she doesn’t like the leading female character Anastasia. Collins claims that HER leading women are NOT PASSIVE. “My heroines kick ass. They don’t get their asses kicked.”

SHE’S READY – “DYNASTY’S” JOAN COLLINS WANTS A COMEBACK ON TV

Joan Collins loves the 80’s revival in fashion – these poofy shoulders are something Dynasty’s Alexis Carrington would have adored. We hear that Joan is eager to be back on TV and she’s hustling to sell a series about two aging actors (her and Robert Wagner to be exact ) who run a hotel in Hollywood and give advice to young actors starting out. With those shoulders she’s bound to talk someone into producing it.

JOAN COLLINS IS STILL GOING STRONG

When we see Dynasty star Joan Collins, 76, out and about, having a good time like she is here in St Tropez with her husband Percy Gibson, we’re inspired by her zest. When Joan started out she was often compared to Elizabeth Taylor who was only a year older but already an established star. They looked a lot alike and to her chagrin, Joan was referred to as the “poor man’s Liz Taylor.” Elizabeth was always the bigger star, but now Joan has the last laugh. Liz never took care of herself – she didn’t exercise, and ate and drank everything in sight. She married eight times and landed in rehab more than once. Sadly, Liz’s self indulgence cost her plenty- she’s frail and in a wheelchair with minimal activity and Joan is still living it up. This could be a lesson to all.

Even Elton John is cutting back due to the economic crisis. A few years ago he would have held his birthday party at a five star hotel or the hottest new club in town. But for his celebration this year, he rented out the Hamlet on Sunset. It’s a comfy, pleasantly old fashioned, modestly priced hamburger restaurant with a lounge. Dean Martin used to drink there. Elton attracted an eclectic crowd. Joan Collins (who owns a condo in the building next door) arrived with her husband Percy Gibson. Jackie Bisset came with an unidentified man. We always love seeing her. Sometimes RuPaul can slip by in a suit without being recognized. Here’s Chastity Bono. QVC hairdresser Nick Chavez and diet expert Nikki Haskell turned up together. It looks like Elton is getting Star Cruncher exercise equipment for his birthday.

Is Target in West Hollywood the new Ivy? Plenty of celebrities are regulars there and the paparazzi are catching on. Benji Madden and Joan Collins (with husband Percy Gibson) are two examples. You never know who might be pushing that shopping cart next to you in the electronics department. There was a time when you’d never catch a famous person in Target, but the store has achieved an element of chic acceptance.

HE DID HER WRONG

We heard that Joan Collins ranted to a soap magazine that she still holds a major grudge against ET’s Steven Cojocaru because he voted her “worst dressed” at the Emmys. She called Cojo a “horrible hideous man.” So we dug up a photo of Joan and we have to agree that Cojo did her wrong. He claimed she was “dripping with rhinestones from Brooklyn” and said it was a “sparkle attack.” He called her outfit “Beyond over the top.” We like Cojo but we’re siding with Joan here – he should have kept in mind that Joan IS in her seventies and looks great – plus she isn’t bombarded by designers begging to give her free dresses her like the twentysomething girls who made Cojo’s Best Dressed List.
