No one, except perhaps Jackie Collins’ agent, pretended that ITV’s Hollywood Wives was great art.

Anthony Hopkins, who starred in the miniseries, and by his own account, spent most of the time in bed with Suzanne Somers, had no illusions and no worries.

“I love junk,” said Hopkins. “I was in California when my agent rang me and said, ‘I don’t know if you’re interested; I don’t even know if I should tell you . . .’ I asked what it was. He said he’s got a script of Hollywood Wives. I said my wife, Jenni, had just read it. My agent said, ‘It’s absolute rubbish.’ But I read it, and there was nothing pornographic in it, so I thought, why not?”

When he walked on to the Hollywood Wives set, Angie Dickinson (yes, she’s in it too, and so is Stefanie Powers) said; “My God, are you doing this?”
