Dallas Stars' Lover for 17 Years: Linda Gray Lied About Our Relationship

The ex-lover of "Dallas" star Linda Gray says the actress not only dumped him after 17 years, she wrote him out of her life.

"She is a liar, a hypocite and a phony," Dan Gordon told INSIDE EDITION. "Man, I could say a lot of bad words."

Gordon, a screenwriter, says the two were in a committed relationship for 17 years before she ended their affair on the phone. In her new memoir, she writes that she hasn't been in a "long-term passionate relationship."
