She bared her belly on “I Dream of Jeannie” and now 75-year-old Barbara Eden is baring her soul in a new memoir.
Crown publishing announced on Tuesday that the blonde TV icon will conjure up “Jeannie Out of the Bottle,” a 2011 tell-all in which she’ll share her on- and off-screen encounters with legends past and present, including Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Lucille Ball, Paul Newman, and Clint Eastwood.
Fans of the ‘60s series “I Dream of Jeannie” will also get their wish as the star - born Barbara Jean Morehead - will dish about her experience portraying a 2,000-year-old genie who shacks up with a Florida astronaut, played by Larry Hagman.
“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," Eden said in a statement.
