<AskVictoria> terris says: What storyline do you wish they'd given you that never took actually took place on the show?

<VictoriaP> SInce Pam was unable to carry a child, I always thought there should have been surrogate mother episodes

<AskVictoria> ewan says: hi, was there much competition between Dallas and Dynasty? (From England)

<VictoriaP> Actually Dynasty was created by Aaron Spelling after Dallas was already successful
<VictoriaP> so those of us on Dallas nevere felt there was any competition
<VictoriaP> Dynasty was meant to be as much like Dallas as possible and was originally called Denver Oil
<VictoriaP> until they realized Dynasty was a one word title more like that of Dallas

<AskVictoria> ogy says: You do a great southern accent. Are you actually from the South?
<VictoriaP> I enjoy doing many differet kinds of accents but in fact my mother is from Georgia
<AskVictoria> teresa says: How well did the cast get along?

<VictoriaP> The cast of Dallas got along like any large family
<AskVictoria> vickie says: Do you keep in touch with any of the cast?

<VictoriaP> I keep in touch with Larry Hagman and I try to try to always remember to send Patick Duffy a birthday card on his birthday
<VictoriaP> next

<AskVictoria> sue_ellen says: Did the cast of Dallas get along well off camera AT LEAST???
<VictoriaP> We had so much fun off camera I can't tell you about it!

<AskVictoria>Pamela_e says: Why did you quit Dallas?
<VictoriaP> I felt that the best of Dallas had already aired and I wanted to move on
<VictoriaP> while I was still so proud of the show it had been
<VictoriaP> In hindsight, it was a good time to go.

<AskVictoria>Pamela_e says: What did you think of the Dallas Dream Idea
<VictoriaP> I thought it was a nightmare!

<AskVictoria> aristo says: In hindsight, would you define any of the Dallas relationships as abusive and in need of Domestic Violence Counseling? If yes, what would you have suggested the characters do to help treat the problem and perhaps educate the country on how domestic violence can be handled in the home?
<VictoriaP> I definitely think that the relationship between JR & Sue Ellen was both abusive emotionally & verbally. I don't know it counseling would have helped JR but it certainly would have helped SueEllen to have left sooner then maybe she could have been spun of\f and had her own series!!

<AskVictoria> blacvklotus says: how has success affected your personal life?
<VictoriaP> It has made me fiercely proctetive of it! Sucess as a celebrity not only affects your own life, but also people intimately involved in your life.

<VictoriaP> The actor I would chose would be Dustin Hoffman
<VictoriaP> and I am so very lucky to already know him

<AskVictoria> garrisone says: Is it true that there might be a new DALLAS series with you as one of the stars?
<VictoriaP> I understand that there had been talks about a Dallas series, but Pam is dead.

<AskVictoria> kristin_shepard says: did you like Pam as a character?

<VictoriaP> As the years went by and JR became more and more utterly evil,
<VictoriaP> the writers chose to make Pam more and more utterly good
<VictoriaP> By the time I left at the end of year 9, the only thing left to do was to become Mother Teresa
<VictoriaP> I have fond and loving memories of Pam
