Name: Dominique Deveraux Lloyd on Dynasty; 1984-87
Bitch Dish: Carroll, who had already broken TV barriers by becoming the first African American to star in a series with the 1968 sitcom Julia, was apparently set on breaking the TV-drama barrier as well. Joan Collins recalls that Carroll campaigned for a role on Dynasty by crashing an Aaron Spelling party: "She went up to Aaron and said, 'I want to be the first black bitch on Dynasty!' " Shortly after, she was cast as the sister wealthy Blake Carrington (John Forsythe) never knew he had.
Arriving in Denver to seek revenge on the Carringtons, who have refused to acknowledge her as a family member; plotting to take over brother Blake's company, while pretending to help him save it; warning Lady Ashley (Ali McGraw) to stay away from her Blake; baring her claws to Alexis, who was particularly upset when she found out Dominique would be named in Tom Carrington's will.
All She Does Is Bitch "She and I had some good old bitch fights together," Collins says of Carroll. "It was great fun!"
