I have a moment while I'm finishing my mid morning snack to chat with fans.
Hey, does anyone know if ice cream comes just in pint and half gallon sizes…or is there like a ten gallon bucket available?
How does it feel to be retired from acting?
Retired? I'm not retired….I'm just at the craft services table.
Constance, you played a relatively minor character on Knots Landing, one among many on a show with a large cast.
How come DL made you an enduring fave, and not, say, Kim Lankford or Lisa Hartman?
I still don't understand that.
Do you know Diana Canova?
BRING ME SOME FUCKING TWINKIES NOW!
Do prefer to eat green poop or corn encrusted poop?
Constance McCashin is no longer funny. That routine had its day five years ago.
But those Munchos aren't past THEIR expiration date! Pass the bag!
I'm bored and have the home version of "$100,000 Pyramid" and some HoHos in my car.
Can I come over?
I was the original Constance McCashin poster who had her eating a different junk food with every post. I feel like a proud papa right now.

R11 I was waiting for you to show up!
Do they still make Choco Tacos?
I can't wait for the new WeTV reality show: "Constance at Costco!"
The crazy thing about Constance and her snacking is that she's not a large woman. She must have some metabolism!

Verna, we're goin' home!
Is Constance McCashin even overweight? Where did all of this come from?
I thought she was retired from acting and doing something else. Either way, she made an indelible mark on primetime dramas of the 80's as "Laura" and she was on the show for 7 seasons (I think) more than most shows last nowadays.
It was stupid to write her and Julie Harris out of the show, but TV shows always have and always will do stupid things. I'm sure KL regretted it in later years.
I'm still a fan. Making fun of her like this seems like a low blow.
As the poster who started this with Constance and a bag of Funyuns, I can assure you it wasn't meant to insult her. I thought it somewhat amusing to have her bored, sitting around reading DL, while noshing on something.
I posted a few times in a Knots or Dallas thread, usually criticizing Donna's eye-shadow while having a snack. If anything it was making fun of Donna Mills (or, more to the point, Donaa Mills' 80s make-up). It then took on a life of it's own.
Thanks for the "heads up" R20, I always wondered. Constance McCashin is on Twitter now, I followed her for a little while. But, she only posted links to articles having nothing to do with "Knots Landing."
Obviously, KL wasn't her whole life, but it must have been a major part of it. I was disappointed that-you'd never know she had been on the show from her Twitter persona. She never answered back-even when I complemented her. So, I Unfollowed.
To be honest: When she refused to let her voice be heard in the "Knots Landing: Back to the Cul-de-Sac" scene where "Meg" finally had the chance to watch the video will "Laura" had left her; I felt viewers were really screwed out of a major payoff. It wouldn't have to even show her face, just her voice.
It seemed so petty and disrespectful to fan, I lost a lot of respect for her. She shouldn't have been fired, but on the other hand, she did last for 7 or 8 yrs. or 200 episodes (If I remember right.) She could have been gracious about it.
But, who knows what went on behind-the-scenes?
Constance showed up at the TVLand Awards a couple of years ago. She has said that she would've been opening to be part of the reunion show a few years back, but that Henry Winkler, who produced the show, didn't contact her til a couple of days before taping was scheduled (he tracked her down at the beauty salon), and she couldn't make it on such short notice.
Connie McCashin doesn't know ANYTHING about being gracious. If she did, maybe Laura wouldn't have died.
Connie's professional website. She looks she's barely aged in the 25-30 years since she did Knots.
Constance, what do you think of the work Joan Van Ark has had done?
"At age five, I was catapulted to semi-stardom, appearing on the iconic CBS children's program, The Howdy Doody Show. My parents squelched this fledgling career in favor of a "normal childhood"
Bitter much, Constance?
Constance (aka Laura), was Scooter hung like a nail?
Who was the man during your lesbian fling? You or Ciji?
R27, I think Joan's work was rather unfortunate. However, I will say it was a risk worth taking, as she was getting a bit ragged and needed to try something.
R29, Diana, you are truly tasteless. Of course Ciji and I were great friends but nothing more than that. If you had listened to your mother and stayed in Knots Landing --- instead of running off with your slimy boyfriend who murdered my best friend --- you might know that.
I will respond to other questions, unless you're Donna Mills asking how I was able to keep eyeglasses on my pushed-in-face.
I visited her website a few months ago.
I think she dissociated from [italic]Knots Landing[/italic] because, as cliched as this may sound, it was a chapter of her life she wants left behind.

Knots Landin'? What's that, sug'?
Where did my thread go?
It's the height of irony that the always-snacking Constance is, in real life, a therapist dealing with eating disorders.
[italic]Dear Ms./Miss/Mrs. McCashin:[/italic] Which do you prefer—the 1970s or 1980s?
What kind of idiot would bump a thread that couldn't even make it to 15 posts when it was started two years ago, and had only made it up to 37 in the years since?
The glory days of Constance McCashin threads were - what, ten years ago? No one cares anymore.
