Wahine of the Week: Barbara Eden ...

 This weeks Wahine of the Week is a vintage one... introducing Barbara Eden

Eden is most indelibly associated with her role as the genie in the bottle in the long-running TV sitcom "I Dream of Jeannie" 1965 in which Major Anthony Nelson, a NASA astronaut, finds a decorative pink bottle on a desert island after he splashes down in the ocean. The bottle has a beautiful blond genie in it, who immediately assumes that Nelson is her master. The sitcom gained a cult following, and Eden still appears from time to time in commercials and cameos that poke gentle fun at her former role.


  1. Holy Guacamole. They just don't make em' like Bab's anymore do they?

  2. Too right ... I'd love to find a bottle with her inside!
