PR execs take note: a cockroach may be replacing you. In what is
conceivably a PR first, a roach has done a great job raising the profile
of former Dynasty star Joan Collins at Sardi's, a New York restaurant
famed for its wall-to-wall pics of the stars.
It happened while Collins was having dinner. The actress had just dug
into her meal when she noticed a roach scuttle across her table. To
apologize, the restaurant moved a caricature of Collins that had
previously been tucked away on the second floor to a position of pride
by the front door.
Collins now shares the prime wall space with country music star Reba
McEntire and choreographer Susan Stroman.
"I've since decided to hire the cockroach as my agent," Collins quipped
in her Spectator magazine column.
