Gay iconography reaches new heights when Joan Collins makes an appearance on an episode of the queer-popular Absolutely Fabulous, which is now in production for its third season. The [London] Mirror reports that Collins is scheduled to show up in a dream sequence as the evil sister of Edina, played by show creator Jennifer Saunders. The character will not be far removed from that of Alexis Carrington, the superbitch that cemented the Collins image in popular culture. The new season of Ab Fab is scheduled to premiere in the United States in November on Comedy Central.
