Remember how much good ole’ J.R. Ewing hated Valene Ewing, the wife of his deadbeat brother, Gary Ewing on the original Dallas, and the spin-off, of all spin-offs the great Knots Landing? Well in a recent interview with the one and only Valene herself, Joan Van Ark, the actress said she would be interested in showing up in the new Dallas which first season kicks-off on June 13th on TNT.
When asked by Craig Byrne of KSite’s, TV Out of the Box coverage, Van Ark stated, “Well, rumor has it … I’m having lunch with Ted Shackelford tomorrow. They asked him to come down and be part of it. It was several months ago, and he’s deeply into filming The Young and the Restless the daytime soap for CBS. But if they asked Gary, maybe they’ll ask for Val. It is true that J.R. and Val were rivals. There is no doubt about it. This man I loved so much, Larry Hagman … I was just at his birthday party several months ago… I would kill, that if Val came back, if it was trouble for J.R, because they were always at odds. I don’t know if it’s because she stole his baby brother away, and she was ‘white trash,’ or what the whole deal was… ‘but ah wanna get mah claws into that J.R., ah swear!’
So would you like to see Poor Val show up in Dallas? Let us know!
