Before Dorien Corey defined shade for the uneducated masses, before Nene blooped her way to the top, and before Cookie dragged that "fake ass Lena Horne" on Empire, there was...DYNASTY.
In the penultimate episode of the glitzy fourth season, "New Lady In Town," Dominique Deveraux (played by Diahann Carroll) has a sitdown with Alexis Carrington (played by Joan Collins).
For those of you who still, after all this time, don't know the definition of shade (many people do not, as evidenced below), this scene is a masterclass in how to give and respond to shade.
An insult is not shade! Learn the definitions of words, folks.
