I'm Not Into 4-Ways

80-year-old Hollywood legend Joan Collins is livid at fellow icon Shirley Jones, insisting she's NOT some porn-watching swinger pervert and never was -- despite claims in Shirley's new book -- and now, she's threatening Ms. Jones.

Sources tell TMZ, Joan -- famous for the '80s soap "Dynasty" -- is pissed over one anecdote in particular, which Shirley recounts in her book "Shirley Jones: A Memoir," a story about the first time Shirley met Joan in the late '60s and a 4-person sex party nearly broke out.

According to the book, Shirley and her then-husband Jack Cassidy were at the home of Joan Collins and Tony Newley for dinner ... and after dinner, Tony proposed they all get naked and watch porn together. Shirley writes, "It was clear what Tony was leading up to -- swinging."

79-year-old Shirley says she turned down the offer -- and now, sources tell us, Joan is accusing her of libel ... insisting the story is bogus.

We're told Joan has sent Shirley a cease and desist letter, demanding her new book be removed from stores everywhere, but Shirley's NOT backing down. She says the story is true and she's standing by it.

Old women arguing over group sex and porn ... gotta love it.

WHAT'S UP WITH THE SO-CALLED "TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES" BANNER???


I SUSPECT TMZ IS GETTING TORPEDOED FOR POSTING STORIES ABOUT PEOPLE WHO WOULD "RATHER NOT" HAVE THEIR NAMES ASSOCIATED WITH THIS GOSSIP SITE!!! I GUESS YOU SHOULD STICK TO WHAT YOU DO BEST -- T & A PICS AND CELEBRITIES WHO LACK "THE CLASS" TO ACTUALLY CARE ABOUT HOW THE PUBLIC PERCEIVES THEM!!!

The story is about Tony. Why is Joan all upset?

I don't care who is lying and who is telling the truth. The whole idea of an old woman writing a book that includes sexcapades is disgusting. Why would anyone want to embarrass themselves at that age with tales of days of old even if they are somewhat true. Disgusting woman!
I wonder who the target audience is for this book. Nobody under the age of 50 would even know who she is and if they do it's because they know her as mother Partridge and anyone over that is hardly going to run to the store in anticipation of reading about her dirty escapades.

I met Joan Collins and she was arrogant, unkind, not a nice person. I believe Shirley. I have met Shirley, too, and she was a sweetie. She doesn't put up with b.s., either.

Shirley just doesn't want to have to knock Joannie into a pond. In ANY wife-swapping with Tony Newley vs. Jack Cassidy, we KNOW who'd be getting the short end of the stick. Joannie is just miffed that one, Tony never told her he hit up Jack, two, that Shirley turned them down, and most of all, three, now she has one less sexy story for HER tell-all autobiography.

You want dish? I just read that Joan hooked up with Harry Belafonte. After reading that it's easy to see why she'd be after Jack Cassidy's... and wouldn't want her fans to know she was a size queen.
