Jeannie star Barbara Eden re-opens bottle

She famously bared her belly in ‘I Dream of Jeannie’ and now Barbara Eden is planning on baring a whole lot more. The star of the hit 1960s show is penning a Hollywood memoir titled ‘Jeannie out of the Bottle’ and the book is set to make some shocking revelations.

Barbara plans to spill all the goss about her Hollywood hook-ups, including flings with the likes of Elvis Presley, Warren Beatty, Clint Eastwood, Paul Newman and her ‘Jeannie’ co-star Larry Hagman. She also claims Marilyn Monroe and Lucille Ball “dreamt of Jeannie”.

Barbara (75) says, “Like Jeannie, I’ve been bottled up long enough – it’s time for me to pop the cork and talk about the amazing people I’ve been fortunate enough to meet along the way, and the highs and lows of my everyday living.”
