Wingman's Dilemma!

Bill Daily Took Dreams Of Jeannie To The Grave

TV sidekick forever beguiled by Barbara Eden's magic!

Bill Daily, who played wingman to Larry Hagman on the classic ’60s TV series “I Dream of Jeanie,” carried a secret real-life torch for the series’ blond bombshell star, Barbara Eden — and he toted it all the way to the grave! Bill, who died at 91 of natural causes in Santa Fe, N.M., on Sept. 4, was married three times, but couldn’t resist Barbara’s charms. He played clumsy Maj. Roger Healey to Barbara’s magical genie and Hagman’s Maj. Tony Nelson on the show from 1965 to 1970 — and “carried a torch for her from almost the very first moment he met her,” a source close to the late actor revealed to The National ENQUIRER. “He never stopped loving her. He always felt they had a special bond!” Read on for details of Bill’s crush, and click here for more news of old Hollywood….
