Dynasty’s Joan Collins has re-emerged to help with a charity drive, and the star is back and ready to dish about her glam life.

While Joan Collins has been quiet in recent years, the famed actress is a patron of the Shooting Star Chase charity shop, a boutique outlet for secondhand goods.

Shoppers of the store will be treated to some items from Collins’ personal collection, and the star was on hand in Weybridge to help open the charity retailer.

But good works are not all Joan has been up to in the years since Dynasty, and now Collins is ready to dish the dirt.

In February of 2014, Collins committed to a nine-night long run in London’s West End, for a show that will showcase the actress’ eventful work and comings and goings since her early days in Hollywood.

A Broadway and theater themed blog explains that Joan Collins fans will be treated to an inside scoop during the show, which will also offer a Q & A with the soap star after the show:

One Night With Joan follows the ups and downs of the TV legend’s life and career. Collins will screen rare and hilarious film footage and speak first hand about her screen test for Cleopatra and why she lost the role to Elizabeth Taylor, her on-set encounters with Bette Davis, Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, Paul Newman and Richard Burton, and, of course, her many relationships. Audiences can also expect to see outtakes of her legendary catfights with Linda Evans in Dynasty. The evening includes a question and answer session with the chance to ask Joan anything about her headline-making life.”

After Joan Collins brought Alexis Carrington to small screens worldwide in the massive hit Dynasty, she went on to sell more than 50 million novels and memoirs during the course of her literary career.
