I have lived in Los Angeles for 20 years from the Midwest.
For someone who has lived in and socialized in Beverly Hills I have had my share of introductions to many celebrities.
I can sadly say: that I have rarely been impressed.
However: this was not the case with Joan Collins.
Despite the part that she played in Dynasty, she is the warmest way about her.
I was walking in to Cafe Roma several years ago for a business lunch and as I breezed by: she looked up and smiled to sweetly. Where as many woman are not warm to others, her kind persona completely surprised me.
She is very sweet.
We only spoke briefly, but she left me with the best impression of herself.
