Dynasty star Joan Collins has reportedly won her defamation dispute with actress Shirley Jones, who claimed that a dinner date involving their husbands nearly turned into swinger party.
The Partridge Family alum, 79, has agreed to remove Collins's name from her new book Shirley Jones: A Memoir, after Collins, 80, accused Jones of libel.
In the book, Jones and her then-husband Jack Cassidy were at the home of Collins and Tony Newley for dinner. Afterwards, Newley proposed they all get naked and watch pornography. "It was clear what Tony was leading up to – swinging," Jones, who turned down the offer, writes.

Dynasty star John Forsythe, who played patriarch Blake Carrington on the primetime soap and was the voice of Charlie in both the TV and film versions of Charlie's Angels, died on Thursday.
In a statement Friday, Reuters reported, "The family of John Forsythe sadly announces his passing on April 1, 2010. He was 92 years old and, thankfully, he died as he lived his life ... with dignity and grace, after a years-long struggle with cancer."
Forsythe, who also played Bentley Gregg, the swinging single saddled with an orphaned niece on the 1957-62 sitcom Bachelor Father, received three Emmy nominations for Dynasty, which ran from 1981-89. After making his film debut in 1943, he also appeared in the Alfred Hitchcock movies The Trouble with Harry (1955) and Topaz (1969), as well as 1988's Bill Murray comedy Scrooged, among many others.
