DUFFY TO “DALLAS” EXECS: NO VICTORIA, OR I RIDE!
On the eve of reuniting for a resurrected “Dallas” TV series with iconic co-stars LARRY HAGMAN and LINDA GRAY, PATRICK DUFFY dramatically threatened to ride off into the sunset forever after hearing that producers were wooing his former TV wife, VICTORIA PRINCIPAL, to rejoin the smash ’80s nighttime soap opera.
“Patrick can’t stand Victoria and had warned upfront that he’d never work with her again,” said an insider.
“At first, there was no problem because Victoria had opted not to reprise her role as Patrick’s TV wife.
"So he happily signed on – but when he got wind that producers were secretly trying to woo her back, he went loco!
"He’s normally very mild-mannered, but he made it crystal clear that if Victoria’s back in, he’s OUT!” Producers caved, and reassured him Victoria won’t be riding the “Dallas” range.
