I Dream of Jeannie's Barbara Eden, now 76, shares memories of the '60s sitcom, which continues to air in reruns worldwide, in her new memoir.

DID YOU LIKE WEARING THOSE HAREM PANTS?

Oh my goodness, I loved them. So easy to work in. I still have some-I wore them to a Halloween party at Loni Anderson's.

WHAT WAS IT LIKE WORKING WITH LARRY HAGMAN?

It was a troubled time for him, and he acted out. Once there was a storm brewing over a script or something, and my dressing mistress said, "Barbara, don't turn around-he's peeing!" But he's a dear, dear man. We're friends.

STILL HAVE ANY GENIE BOTTLES?

I have genie bottles, Jeannie dolls...The original bottle is in a safe deposit box at the bank. It's on its way to the Smithsonian.
