And in "Dynasty" news ...

Have you been reading about the "Dynasty" reboot slated for the CW's fall schedule? The news broke earlier this month, and we eagerly await what the network will do with this beloved classic TV show, other than the fact that they'll take a different approach from TNT's "Dallas" reboot," which was more of a continuation of the original series.

Meanwhile, in other "Dynasty" news, one of the most iconic settings of the original series has just gone up for sale. It was the site of the well-remembered lily pond catfight scene between Alexis and Krystle, and you can snag it for a cool $25 mil ...
