Dawn Wells is having an estate sale
October 3rd, 2018 under 60s, Auctions. [ Comments: none ]


Dawn Wells is having some financial woes and she is downsizing. Because of that, this weekend she is holding an estate sale.

The beloved actress is not only selling off items of her furniture but also some memorabilia from her days on Gilligan’s Island and other shows. Therefore, if you are near Valley Village and a fan, it is the must go to sale of the weekend. Just don’t expect to see her because her publicist Harlan Boll says she will not be in attendance. While she will not be there, I will be.

How could I say no to some of the things she is getting rid of? To see what she is parting with, check out EstateSales.Net.

Dawn Wells talks about Gilligan’s Island’s fashion problems
September 27th, 2018 under 60s. [ Comments: none ]


Back on in the mid-’60s, actresses were not allowed to show a lot of skin. As in their belly buttons and cleavage. For Gilligan’s Island, the producers had to work very hard on that. Dawn Wells told Inside Edition that her short shorts had to be high enough to cover her belly button and Tina Louise’s dresses could not be low enough to show her cleavage. Not an easy thing to if you are walking around on an island. But somehow they made it work.

The interview was not only about her sitcom, but it was also about her recent money woes. She says that a large chunk of her debt is from back taxes along with medical costs. What did the actress think of her friend starting a GoFundMe page for her? At first, she was not happy because she feels there are people who are worse off than her. Since then, she has come to terms with it because of all of the lovely things were written to her because of it.

Now that she has her money, hopefully, she will be able to get her life together.

Dawn Wells responds to her GoFundMe page as did Tina Louise
September 6th, 2018 under 60s. [ Comments: none ]


Yesterday, it was revealed that Dawn Wells has had financial problems due to medical issues. So much so, the 79-year-old is $180,000 in debt. In order to move into the assisted living place she wants to reside in, she needs to erase that debt. Therefore, her friend created a GoFundMe page for her to raise the money. The story went world wide and MaryAnn from Gilligan’s Island posted a sweet message on social media.

Wow! I am amazed at the kindness and affection I have received from the current outpouring in regards to the Go Fund Me Page that is grabbing so much attention and want to address it. A dear dear friend of mine with a big heart was trying to help me with some common issues we all understand and some must face. He create that page with the love an emotion like someone protecting their child. In a recent conversation with him I remarked Where did the time go? I don’t know how this happened. I thought I was taking all the proper steps to ensure my golden years. Now, here I am, no family, no husband, no kids and no money. Im grateful that God has given me so many friends and fans who care, or it would all be too ….overwhelming …..I am grateful to any of my fans who are willing to offer support. However, please know that my outlook is positive and I look forward to seeing you all in my travels.

That positive attitude will help her heal and the money will help her have a home. We need to do more to help our elderly when it comes to medical costs. But that is whole other debate.

Tina Louise the only other surviving member from the ’60s sitcom had a very Ginger message for her co-star. She wrote on Twitter, “I just heard that @therealmaryann has not been feeling well. Me, Caprice and our newest arrivals are sending Dawn our very best wishes for a speedy recovery and all good things in the future. <3"

A classic sitcom fan’s wet dream!
November 13th, 2017 under 60s, 70s, Wet dream. [ Comments: none ]


When you were growing up, did you dream of hanging with Jeanie in her bottle? Did you want to work at a radio station like WKRP, just so you could know someone like Jennifer? Did you wish your mother was as rockin’ as Shirley Partridge? We all did! Let’s be real.

Here are the three sitcom Goddesses hanging out recently and Loni Anderson, Barbara Eden and Shirley Jones all look phenomenal. They could easily do a sitcom together and it would be a huge hit. Who wouldn’t want to see these funny beauties back on our TVs every week? Especially because they have not aged a day since their shows ended. Which technically they haven’t because they still all air in syndication.

Seriously, don’t they all look sweller than swell and hotter than Hell!

Tony Dow and Jerry Mathers talk about Leave It to Beaver
October 25th, 2017 under 60s, Kathie Lee and Hoda. [ Comments: none ]


Back in 1957, Leave It to Beaver debuted and it has been airing ever since. Making it one of the longest running shows on television. Even though it has been 60 years since the show first hit the airwaves, Beaver and his brother Wally are still talking about it. Jerry Mathers, 69, and Tony Dow, 72, were on Today and also on Today with Kathie Lee and Hoda to talk about the family sitcom that forever made them household names.

Did you know that show was on more than one network? Its first season aired on CBS and the remaining 5 were on ABC. A Variety critic said if the show lasted for more than 2 weeks, he would eat his hat. No word how the hat tasted. Also the actors revealed that their TV father, Hugh Beaumont, was working as a Methodist minister at the time and only became an actor to pay the bills. No wonder the show had and still has the wholesome feel.

But the best thing to came out of this interview was seeing how close the TV brothers are even after all of these decades. To me, when a show’s cast is still gets along years after the show has ended, it explains why the show is still a sucess even after it has been cancelled.
