It seems the universe granted our wish! Beloved I Dream of Jeannie star Barbara Eden is making her long-awaited return to the TV screen. TV Line recently reported the iconic star will be a part of the Let’s Make a Deal game show’s special called “Decades Week.”
According to the outlet, the 88-year-old beauty will be appearing on the hit CBS show on Tuesday, March 10. Barbara will be joining several guests to ring in “Decades Week” — which will celebrate Hollywood’s most beloved stars and projects throughout the ’50s, ’60s, ’70s, ’80s and ’90s.
In a preview clip teasing the highly anticipated episode, Barbara can be seen donning an all-blue pantsuit and sporting her signature, blonde hair. The Flaming Star actress showed off her game show hosting skills as she stood with the contestants and host Wayne Brady.
“That’s all the time we have. Before we leave and say bye from Kat, Johnathan, Tiffany and myself, and from Barbara Eden, please, I’ll never get a chance to ask this again,” Wayne said to Barbara on stage. “Please, can you as Jeannie do the nod and blink us out?”
“Oh, you betcha,” the Harper Valley PTA actress sweetly replied. “Lots of trouble.” Moments later, the screen went black after Barbara did her iconic nod and blink. So cool!
Barbara proved age is just a number as she made her appearance on the hit TV show. While previously chatting with Closer Weekly, the Hollywood star said doing “everything in moderation” is her secret to staying young.
“Yes, don’t limit yourself! Just don’t overdo it,” she told Closer at an event in November 2019, noting she still loves being active. “I go to the gym, and have a trainer,” she explained.
“Well, it used to be spinning. I don’t do that anymore. I stopped that. I loved it but it’s not good for your knees so I stopped,” Barbara continued. “Now I do weights and I walk around a track.”
She even previously told Closer that putting off retirement has been the biggest blessing. “That’s what keeps my energy up,” she gushed in April 2019. “I love to work. If I don’t work, then I get lazy.”
