I Dream of Being Jeannie

Yea, I know I'm showin' my age and some of you young'uns probably have never even heard of Barbara Eden or that famous 60's sitcom I Dream of Jeannie, but just play along kids. For all of you kinky types, she coined the term "yes master" before Christian Grey was even born. She was a freakin' SEXAY bombshell back in the day. I wonder if Larry Hagman (who played Major Tony Nelson on the show) ever hit that in real life? I sure as hell hope so 'cause ya know she could do SO MUCH more for Major Nelson than just cleanin' up those goofy messes he and Captain Healey always got themselves into.

So, there is Barbara today at age 78 wearing her iconic costume at The Life Ball this past weekend in Vienna. YOU GO GIRL!!!!!! Right there is my motivation to push away from the table a bit more and keep movin' my ass!
And that's how Jeannie grants her master's wish.  Although Major Nelson has passed to the great beyond, I know Jeannie is still makin' lots of dude's dreams come true!

  2. I LOVED I Dream Of Jeannie!!! It was my favorite show as a kid. And holy hell, I think I need to put this recent pic of her up on my fridge to prevent me from reaching for any Klondike Bars!

  3. she does look amazing for her age and even for a much younger age than hers! Maybe she's following Joan Collins' tip - she says her secret to young looks are young men :)

  5. She still rocks the Jeanie outfit after all these years! I saw the picture on the news and President Clinton thought so as well by his expression.

  7. Major Nelson (the character) must of been gay. You don't go multiple seasons being platonic with a hot genie who was begging for it from the get go.

    Her real-life husband at the time was on the show as the evil blue genie.

    She still looks very good for her age especially.

  12. As I am OLD...I definitely remember the show. Really a cute show. She was so cute then and still looks AMAZING. I was watching something, (can't remember what program as I am OLD) but Barbara was talking about how she came to get into the costume again). In the interview she looks much younger than 70 anything.

  13. But the real question is, "Are you going to put on one of those costumes for us?"

  14. Okay...yeah...I'd tap that.
    I'm so ashamed.
    So Majors Nelson and Healey made messes together?
    I never knew they both swung that way.
    No wonder Jeannie felt safe.

  15. I would rather wear that than a string bikini.

    She's still a classy lady.

  16. Awh Cuuuuuuu-te! Thanks for this fun post of yes, one of my idols! I frankly liked (more rather loved to hate) J.R. Ewing's character more than dazzed and confused Major Nelson. hahahahaha.

    THANK YOU! Thank you for your nice words to me. I don't consider myself very techy at all. I consider myself not knowing enough about it. awh ~~~~ hug!!!

  17. I remember it well. I just couldn't fathom why Major Nelson didn't pork her senseless when had the chance. Erectile dysfunction?

  18. Wow! Good for her! I had heard she donned the outfit once again, but had yet to see any pictures. She continues to be an inspiration, doesn't she? When I was a kid, she made me wish I would stumble upon her bottle. Now that I'm mid-forties - just as you pointed out - she inspires me to get back on that treadmill! :)
