“Dallas” Reboot: Bobby Ewing Now Married to Mary Alice from “Desperate Housewives”

Share

Bobby Ewing is now married either to a dead narrator or a woman who got married in India and wears a bra on the outside of her blouse. According to the publicity materials for the reboot of “Dallas” on TNT, Brenda Strong, the actress who narrates “DH” as deceased Mary Alice Young, is apparently married to Bobby. There’s no Pam — Victoria Principal long ago left “Dallas.” And there’s no April (Sheree J. Wilson). Now it’s Mary Alice, er. Brenda, who offed herself on “Desperate Housewives” but stuck around to narrate the show. On “Seinfeld,” Brenda was Elaine’s friend Sue Ellen–yes, Sue Ellen, “Dallas” fans–Mischke, who appeared in four episodes including “The Betrayal”–the backwards episode about the trip to her wedding in India, and “The Bra-less Wonder.” Not only that, Strong was on the original “Dallas,” playing a one night stand with Cliff. Speaking of Cliff, why no mention of Ken Kercheval, aka Cliff Barnes? There’s no “Dallas” without Cliff Barnes! And please, TNT, bring back Sly (Deborah Rennard), J.R.’s long suffering secretary. Brenda will also run across Bobby and Pam’s adopted son, Christopher, played by “Desperate Housewives” album Jesse Metcalfe.
