    In S1's "For Love or Money" you had Lance fall for a Lori, who was pushed out by Angela who wanted him to marry Melissa instead ...

    The throughout S2, Lance "cheats" on Melissa with Lori, now played by a less comely actress:

    But one Lori is named Chapman and the other named Stevens... baddish recast, or a different character entirely?

    I think later on he dated another Lori whose name was Marr, but I can't remember.

    Snarky, the role was recast. The character’s surname was apparently meant to be Stevens, as per what was originally intended for season 1. Maggie Cooper who played the second Lori was also in season 7, in a different role.


    Richard is being held captive, at the cartel’s New York headquarters. Diana Hunter finally brings him to see the boss, in their office. Richard is very angry and protests to the person, sitting in a chair with their back to him. The person turns around, (a scene from season 2, 1982-‘83):

    Richard: “You are the chief? What about Henri Denault? I thought he was the real power.”

    Jacqueline: “Haven’t you heard? Women are coming into their own.”

    Richard: “Then you did sell me.”

    Jacqueline: “We all made compromises. We had to.”

    Richard: “You abandoned me!”

    Jacqueline: “My last husband’s fortune gave me enough to push Denault aside and I took over, knowing I would be closer to you.”

    Richard: “Oh I’m touched!”

    Jacqueline: “I want you to leave California!”

    Richard: “Never!”

    Jacqueline: “I am willing to give you control of the company.”

    Richard: “Oh no….I like the weather out there!”

    Ah poor Lori she didn't know what she was letting herself into, with the wicked witch of the west looking over proceedings. One standout moment for me was when Angela put an end to Lori and Lance's little bicycle trip, as she called their excursion. This was side splittingly funny. So anyone for emeralds?

    But the first Lori came back in another role too, as cheerleader Gabrielle Short.

    Of course Chase’s brunette bit on the side and yet another thorn in Angela’s side. Cindy Morgan is a stunning looking woman.


    Gabrielle Short bursts into Angela’s study. She gives the Falcon Crest matriarch a hard smack, on the cheek and leaves again. Good picture and a good sound, (a scene from season 6, 1986 – ‘87):

    Chao Li: “Oh, Mrs. Channing, I’m sorry! It happened so fast.”

    Angela holds her hand over the slapped cheek and is perplexed. She says,

    “Oh never mind that…..for another winery like hers I’d turn the other cheek.”

    The second Lori was less attractive but also rather bitchy to Lance -- and I've never really defended Lance before.

    Lance had moments of being a bitch, as well, so much so he would have deserved a bottle of wine poured on him. Whenever he was drunk being the best time. How many women did he go through in the show? I've lost count.

    As I said, I've never defended Lance before. His sins are well-established.

    But Lori#2 he seemed to be genuinely in love with yet she treated him like a dog, but in that way that some women have of treating men badly but pretending their justification in doing so is self-evident.

    Was that bad karma on Lance's part? One could easily make that argument, but he was by far nicer to her than any other woman, and as soon as anything went wrong, she essentially turned on him and had no sympathy over the trap he was in back home at the winery.

    I also suspect Lori#2 was a gold digger, but, worse, a really bad one. One too caught up with her own feminine self-righteousness to use her brain.

    Deeply flawed as Lance was, he was better rid of her than she was of him.

    It is just as well Lori left the valley, with emeralds on the horizon because Melissa would not have got her foot through the door of FC. Now that would have been a travesty ;).

    Cole should have left with the kid and the lovely blonde Lori. Bye Lance, bye bye hysterical Melissa! Enjoy your bitchy grapes!

    Lori N.o. 2 reminded me of an alley cat. What man could have put up with her, anyways.
