TNT has announced that the third season of “Dallas” will kick off on Monday, February 24, which will be the first season without actor Larry Hagman and his iconic character J.R. Ewing. Hagman died just before season two premiered, and as a result the show was forced to kill off the character as well. In season three, Patrick Duffy‘s Bobby Ewing is now the senior member of the Ewing family following the death of his older brother. John Ross (Josh Henderson) is out to prove he can be just as powerful an ally or enemy as his infamous father. Meanwhile, Bobby’s adopted son Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe) is newly single and determined to make a name for himself and his family in the world of natural gas. John Ross and Christopher’s former girlfriend, Elena Ramos (Jordana Brewster), is now  blinded by thoughts of justice for previous wrongs.

In the new book, “Llanview in the Afternoon: An Oral History of One Life to Live,” actress Ellen Holly (ex-Clara “Carla” Hall) accused former co-star Erika Slezak (Viki Lord Buchanan) of getting her fired off of the ABC soap back in the 1980′s. The actress says Slezak used the words, “Get those two black bitches out of my face,” in reference to Holly and Lillian Hayman (Sadie Gray) during an anniversary party for the show in 1983. Until now, Slezak had not commented on the matter since the book hit Amazon and other outlets in early September.

Per her official website, Slezak emailed author Jeff Giles on November 7 to give her side of the story (see below), which will be edited into all new and future editions of the book (both digital and hard copies). “Please know that the quotes attributed to Erika from Ellen Holly are absolutely not true,” Slezak’s website stated.
