It has been 45 years since Jill Whelan, 57, set sail on The Love Boat with Fred Grandy, 75, Ted Lange, 76, and Lauren Tewes, 70. And they still love working together.

So much so that Whelan, Grandy, and Lange are starring in a live production of I’m Not Rappaport in Dexter, Michigan until April 21st. And this weekend, Tewes came out to see her old shipmates in the play.

And we got this photo of the four of them, who all still look marvelous. Now, I really want a Love Boat revival with Vicki taking over as Captain as a way of honoring her late father.


The Love Boat cast meets The Real Love Boat one!

In case you missed it, CBS brought back The Love Boat as a dating show starring Jerry O’Connell and Rebecca Romijn as the hosts.

Over the weekend, the crew from The Real Love Boat met the cast from the scripted series. So we got to see Doc (Bernie Kopell), Gopher (Fred Grandy), Isaac (Ted Lange), Julie (Lauren Tewes), and Vicki (Jill Whelan) together again.

They all look so amazing; I don’t know why they are reprising their roles every week on the reality reimagining. Although Lange was the premiere and Whelan will be on the show this Wednesday at 9p. So at least we get to see them.

There is only one person missing, besides the late Gavin MacLeod, and that is Charo. It is a travesty she is not entertaining the singles on the cruise! Cuchi Cuchi!


Is Jill Whelan really 55?

Back in 1978, Jill Whelan joined The Love Boat, a show aboard Princess Cruise Lines. Now, over 40 years later, she is still promoting their cruises.

The actress shared a photo from aboard the brand new Enchanted Princess Cruise Ship, and I can’t believe that she is 55 years old. She looks younger now than she did on the final seasons of the classic show. I know that because I just binged the series on Paramount+.

Seriously, doesn’t she look like a knockout in that Camilla dress?


Is Jill Whelan really 53?
February 20th, 2020 under Jill Whelan. [ Comments: none ]

Back in the ’70s and ’80s, Jill Whelan spent her childhood on a boat. Thirty years later, she found herself back on the S.S. Pacific Princess. If you take a cruise, then you are going to want to get into a bathing suit. That is exactly what little Vicki did. However, she is not that little anymore. The actress is now 53 years old, and she can work a bikini. If they did a revival of The Love Boat, then she would be the Doc of the boat. As in, she would be the person who had a new lover on each trip.

Seriously, why haven’t they have brought back The Love Boat? They have all these reality shows with several celebrities on them, why can’t they get them to be on a scripted show? It is a lot less of a commitment, and it was what they do for a living. Unless they do a reality show like Big Brother and film them living on a cruise ship for a week. I would prefer they switch ships to the Queen Mary because she is haunted. Why can’t I have some fun?


A Love Boat reunion!
June 26th, 2019 under Jill Whelan. [ Comments: none ]

Back in 1977, the Pacific Princess set sail, and 42 years later the cast of The Love Boat is still friends. As you can see in this photo that Jill Whelan shared of herself with Fred Grandy and Ted Lange.

Vicki, Gopher and Isaac had dinner yesterday and I wonder what the three of them talked about. Besides all the good times they had on all of the trips they took with the show and all of the legendary stars they worked with for 9 seasons.

That is incredible enough, but I want a revival of the show with the OGs. I think now is the perfect time. One of the streaming sites can make it a weekly affair and use it to promote the old and new shows and movies that stream on their service. Plus, with a little more money than go to even more cool locations than they did the first go around.

I would book a ticket, wouldn’t you?
