    While Joan seemingly has a wonderful relationship with her granddaughter, there has been tension with her son Alexander, 55. 

    In his 2017 memoir, Unaccompanied Minor, Alexander revealed his drastic decision to abandon his mother after she was 'out of work, out of cash and facing blackmail'. 

    He also described his mother as a 'narcissist' who had virtually abandoned him and his sister to pursue fame.

    He described how his parents were 'enslaved' to the demands of their careers and said his father 'depended on the promise of an after-show tryst with a starlet or groupie'.

    The artist said his mother's obsession with fame put a strain on their relationship but he later became close to her. He has previously claimed he discussed the book with her, adding: 'She has read it and likes it very much.'

    Alexander also described his father Anthony as 'flagrantly unfaithful' and 'a sex addict'.

  1. I'll always remember this cougar as Edith Keeler. Damn, she was gorgeous. Don't look too bad for her age, today.

  2. The grandaugh. doesn't look at all like the dame.

    On the other hand, Collins looks like the Mex. actress/singer, Veronica Castro (it's a common surname):

  3. What a whore. Marriage is a 1 time deal. And that "granddaughter" looks like a fat cow. On a 1-20 she is maybe a 4. Another THOT.
