Joan Collins tweets a tribute to her sister. In an interview in People she says:
She was my best friend. I admire how she handled this. She was a wonderful, brave and a beautiful person and I love her.
Collins dies of breast cancer age 77. Family statement:
It is with tremendous sadness that we announce the death of our beautiful, dynamic and one of a kind mother, Jackie Collins, who died of breast cancer today. She lived a wonderfully full life and was adored by her family, friends and the millions of readers who she has been entertaining for over four decades. She was a true inspiration, a trail blazer for women in fiction and a creative force. She will live on through her characters but we already miss her beyond words.
Collins discusses her career and previews her latest novel featuring Lucky Santangelo, Confessions of a Wild Child, in this interview for PBS.
I wrote this as a young adult book. I thought, this will be fun. I gave it to my publishers, I delivered it, and they go, “Oh, no, no, no, this is for everybody. Everybody loves Lucky, so we’re going to put this out as a book for everyone.”
Danza appears on Interviews with Jackie and talks to Collins about his life and career.
My son got married and I was the best man.
