[ # ] Does Barbara Eden think that Jeannie should have gotten married?
June 17th, 2024 under Barbara Eden

In 1965, Barbara Eden’s life changed forever when I Dream of Jeannie debuted on television. Since then, the comedy about a genie who is released by an astronaut and they fall in love, has never left our TV sets.

On December 2. 1969, Jeannie (Barbara Eden) and Major Nelson (Larry Hagman) got married. Five months later, NBC divorced themselves from the show. That is when we learned that when the “are they or aren’t they” couples get married, the show barely makes it past the honeymoon stage, like Who’s the Boss, The Nanny, and Castle, to name a few.

So, with that legacy, does Eden think they made the right to marry them off? Last week, when she was at The Hollywood Show, she was asked that very question. “No, they should’ve married. Never.” Then she explained, “She wasn’t human. I mean, come on. She was an entity [?]. And that was part of the funny part of the show, was that she thought that she could just be a human. And he knew she wasn’t. Then they just made her a housewife. She wasn’t a housewife.”

I understand what she is saying, but as a kid, I didn’t care about that. As an adult, I still don’t care about the reality of it all. Do you?

Now, let’s talk about the 92-year-old actress. What was in Jeannie’s bottle? She still looks like she did on the show. She is still just as gorgeous!
