— Dorothy Malone, who won an Oscar for her sultry role in the 1956 film “Written on the Wind” and starred in the television soap opera “Peyton Place,” died Friday in Dallas, The New York Times reported. She was 93.
Malone’s daughter, Mimi Vanderstraaten, confirmed her mother’s death, the Times reported. Malone died a few days short of her 94th birthday at the assisted living facility where she had spent the last 10 years of her life.
Malone earned an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in her role as Marylee Hadley, the promiscuous daughter of a Texas oil tycoon, in Douglas Sirk’s 1956 drama, Entertainment Weekly reported. Malone performed a memorable mambo dance in the movie and made a play for Rock Hudson in the steamy melodrama. She starred along with Hudson, Robert Stack and Lauren Bacall.
On television, Malone portrayed Constance Mackenzie in more than 400 episodes of “Peyton Place” from 1964 to 1968. “Peyton Place,” based on the best-selling novel by Grace Metalious. Her character had a dark secret about the birth of her daughter, played by 19-year-old Mia Farrow, and it led to a rating hit as television’s first nighttime soap opera, the Times reported.
Malone would reprise her role in two television movies, “Murder in Peyton Place” in 1977 and “Peyton Place: The Next Generation,” in 1985.
Malone’s final movie appearance came in “Basic Instinct,” when she portrayed Hazel Dobkins, a mother accused of murdering her family, Entertainment Weekly reported.
“I came up with a conviction that most of the winners in this business became stars overnight by playing shady dames with sex appeal,” Malone said in 1967. “And I've been unfaithful or drunk or oversexed almost ever since — on the screen, of course.”

— Prince Harry reportedly called his ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy ahead of his royal wedding to Meghan Markle last week.
According to Vanity Fair, Davy was invited to the royal wedding but learned she wasn’t invited to the evening reception.
A family friend told Vanity Fair that Harry called Davy out of courtesy and they shared a “tearful phone call.”
“It was their final call, a parting call in which they both acknowledged Harry was moving on,” the source told Vanity Fair. “Chelsy was quite emotional about it all, she was in tears and almost didn’t go to the wedding. In the end, she went and promised Harry she wouldn’t try and gate-crash the party.”
Harry and Davy dated for seven years, from 2004 to 2011, PEOPLE reports.
Before their split, it was rumored that Davy was uncomfortable with being in the spotlight.
The pair are reportedly still friendly and have several mutual friends.
Davy, 32, was born in Zimbabwe. Her father, Charles Davy, is a safari farmer and her mother, Beverly Donald Davy, is a former Coca-Cola model and was Miss Rhodesia 1973, according to Elle Magazine.
Davy studied economics and earned a law degree in 2009. She launched her own jewelry brand, Aya, in 2016.
Davy wasn’t the only ex-girlfriend at the wedding.
Harry also invited Cressida Bonas, who he dated from 2012 to 2014.

According to the Guardian, a beagle named Guy was in a Kentucky kill shelter until Ontario-based A Dog's Dream Rescue saved him and offered him for adoption at a 2015 event in Canada. That's where he met his new owner, Markle, who went on to marry Britain's Prince Harry on Saturday.
A royal spokesman told the Guardian in November that Guy had moved to England with Markle, now the Duchess of Sussex.
WLKY reported Saturday that Guy has even been seen riding in the car with Queen Elizabeth II.

— Based on early reports, the Gem City plays an important role in a Stephen King book that dives “into the mind of evil.”
>>RELATED: Stephen King’s rare public appearance brings many cheers (Aug. 13, 2016)
The author who dazzled a sold-out Victoria Theatre crowd here in August 2016 makes Dayton a key setting of his new book “The Outsider (Scribner, $30),” according to an article from Rob Merrill of the Associated Press.
The crime/horror at first centers around Detective Ralph Anderson’s arrest of Little League coach Terry Maitland in Flint City, Okla.
According to Merrill, there is “a mountain of evidence that he (Maitland) murdered — maybe even ate? — an 11-year-old boy in a town park.”
The coach denies committing the crime, and there is evidence that things are not exactly as they seem.
He was at a conference during the murder and can even be seen on a videotape.
Holly Gibney, a character featured in King’s Bill Hodges Trilogy (“Mr. Mercedes,” ″Finders Keepers and ″End of Watch”) makes her way into what Merrill calls the “real heart” of the book that’s said to travel inside the mind of evil.
“She (Gibney) gets called in to check out a lead in Dayton, Ohio, and the stage is set for the rest of the novel — a clash between the Skeptics and the Believers. Holly carries the torch for the latter group, having gained some perspective on the matter thanks to the horrific crimes of Brady Hartsfield in that aforementioned trilogy.”
The cultures of Mexico and Texas also play a vital part of the book, according to a New York Times review.
Color us intrigued and already terrified.
