'Dallas' Does Dallas: 30 Years Later

This past summer, I wrote about the then upcoming Dallas cast reunion with fans party. The grand-daddy of night-time soaps, Dallas was on the air from 1978 to 1991 and was definitely must-see televison when it aired on Friday nights. However, I used to watch this top-rated prime time soap solely for Patrick Duffy! Check out the beefcake pics below to see why I just had to get my weekly fix! I had such a crush on him... sigh.

The reunion event was held this past weekend, but according to the Associated Press, there was a lot of confusion and some disappointed fans:

A weekend event organized to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Dallas has created a drama worthy of the Ewing family itself. Angry fans have complained they didn't get the access to cast members they'd ponied up for - while others got close to the stars without paying for the privilege. It happened in part because hundreds more people than expected showed up for Saturday night's barbecue and cast reunion at the famed Southfork Ranch. The event's organizers are blaming Southfork for allowing gatecrashers; a ranch official places the blame on the organizers. Fans had paid anywhere from $100 to $1,000 for tickets, with those who paid higher prices to gain greater access to Larry Hagman, Linda Gray, Patrick Duffy and others. "It was a huge letdown - totally not worth it. I do feel like I got really ripped off," Elizabeth Knight, who paid $400 in anticipation of getting access to the cast, told Dallas-Fort Worth television station WFAA. MORE

Well, it's too bad the reunion party didn't go quite as well as planned. Still, I think it would have been great fun to see all the old Dallas stars, if only to check out how bad their plastic surgery is - that's not wrong of me, is it? In the meantime, you can see some great pics of the event over at Socialite Life. What do you think, too much surgery?
