    Hi Everyone,

    Dallas fanzine @garry has just shared a clip from the new Dallas DVD release where Victoria Principal talks to her former cast mates for the first time since 2004 I assume. This is how it went:



    Comments anyone?

    Take care,
    Best wishes:
    Karin.

    P.S. Thanks to my friend @Christine for letting me know about this. :) D.S.

    Very sweet and tensely awkward both at the same time.

    And finally, Victoria became God. I knew this would eventually happen. And so did you all.

    I am sure there is more but to see it we would have to buy the new Dallas DVD box since it is an extra on it. :D

    As much as I would like to see the rest I am not getting that since I already own 2 sets of DVDs.

    Thanks for posting :)

    I felt a little awkwardness but that could potentially be because when you phone one person in they can't see what is going on with everyone else and vice versa. Linda and Charlene were pretty quiet but again when you have a phone call it's hard to have multiple people involved.

    I find it funny that Patrick asks what she's been up to because she has to be one of the most active of these original primetime soap stars on Instagram so I feel like as a fan I could almost answer the question :lol: She was in Arizona in May/June and Patrick would know that if he was on Instagram :p

    To be fair, in these sort of situations the question "what have you been up to" is more or less aimed to fill in the audience rather than Patrick asking for himself.

    I can definitely sense the awkwardness there, too, but it was a cute interview for the most part. They all look so good though:)

    Bobby moved the entire volume of his legendary hair helmet to the back! What are you thinking, Patrick?

    Thanks Karin and James! Thar was such a treat to watch. Loved the playful way that Patrick teased Victoria about phoning in her performance and the sweet interaction between Steve and Victoria.

    I think Patrick's question was natural. I mean if you run into an old co-worker or someone that you haven't talked to for a long time calls you up you would start with asking them what they have been up to. Never mind if it's already been on social media. Just because it's publically available it doesn't mean that everyone has seen it.

    I think it's sort of sweet how Patrick called her "sweetheart" and "honey". I guess that's him falling back into the"Bobby & Pam" characters. Also his bantering with her at the beginning when he teased her about phoning in another performance. It made her laugh as well as all of the co-stars. So it was like breaking the ice. ;)

    Having said that it seems to me like Steve might have been happiest to hear from her. At least he was the one who talked the most to her in this clip.

    It's also sort of sad that they are "the original fives" now. I mean they used to be 9 but Larry, Ken, BBG and Jim are all gone now. :(

    But yeah watching this really makes me wish she would do something more with Dallas some day in the future. It's really a shame she wasn't at the 40th Reunion last year.

    Oh and Patrick has cut his hair since this interview was taped in May, as you can see from the photos of them from Nostalgia con in September.

    I love that Victoria discussed the freezing-pond-jumping and attempted shack seduction sequence from the pilot with such detail and enthusiasm - excellent!!

    There's five or six more minutes on the video with Patrick, Charlene, Steve and Victoria reminiscing. Linda doesn't say much.

    "Issue Statements"...Oh Patrick, I wish you were a writer for a new show, you can communicate things in such a subtle way for those of us who know what you may be thinking about...

    You are right, that issue statements thing must be a reference to when she let the viewer know that Pam was not coming back on the new show before the season was over. I don't think CC wanted her to issue that statement or had expected her to but VP didn't want to deceive her fans since she knew she wasn't coming back and wanted to make that clear to us!

    Still from what he said in that clip about them communicating and her being lovely, it seems like the cast is actually on better terms after that phone call in that first video. Or what do you think?
