Cathy Podewell & Deborah Shelton Returning To DALLAS

Deborah Shelton and Cathy Podewell are returning to DALLAS for the funeral of J.R. Ewing (Larry Hagman), according to TV Guide Magazine.

Shelton, who from 1984-1987 played J.R.'s mistress Mandy Winger, has accepted an invitation from TNT's DALLAS to say a few words at the memorial service Bobby (Patrick Duffy) and Sue Ellen (Linda Gray) will throw for the departed Ewing patriarch.

J.R.'s young, country-hick wife Cally Harper Ewing, played by Podewell from 1988-1991, will also be on hand.

Other members of the extended Ewing family who will be paying their respects include J.R.'s brother Gary Ewing (Ted Shackelford), half brother Ray Krebbs (Steve Kanaly), and niece Lucy Ewing (Charlene Tilton). And don't be surprised if J.R.'s nemesis Cliff Barnes (Ken Kercheval) makes an unwelcome appearance before the coffin closes.

The second season of TNT's DALLAS will premiere on January 28, 2013. J.R.'s funeral is slated to air March 11.

  1. I am impressed. The new "Dallas" is really being faithful to the show's whole history. I never thought they would even mention "Cally."

    They've done a great job, now they need to add an updated "Knots Landing" to make a perfect two-hour block. With Donna Mills, Joan Van Ark, Michele Lee and Ted Shackleford interested; it could work equally as well.

    I'd suggest "Falcon Crest," but I really don't know if it could work without Jane Wyman. Maybe? But, hard to envision.

  2. Mandy and Cally return! That is great for the show. Can't wait for the second season

  4. I've known Cathy Podewell (Cally) since we were in the 7th grade together. She's a wonderful person and it's great to see the new version of Dallas honoring her contribution to the history of Dallas then, and now!
