Barbara Eden: ‘I Dream Of Cleaning’

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Barbara Eden starred on I Dreamed Of Jeannie, but for her latest role she’s dreaming of cleaning.

Eden appears as George Lopez’s housekeeper on George Lopez tonight (Apr. 4) and the former genie in a bottle admits it wasn’t hard for her to pick up the bottles of cleaning supplies.

Says Eden: “I’m a terrible neat freak – everything has its place down to my sock drawer. It used to drive my mother crazy because I was always straightening things.”

Eden says she is so into cleanliness that she caught herself straightening up the Lopez set – even though her character lets the house “go to pot” because she’s focusing all her attention on making Lopez happy.

Although Eden prides herself on being tidy, she admits that she does have a secret packrat side that comes out once in a while.

She explains: “I think it has something to do with growing up in a working-class family. You really come to cherish everything you have and want to take care of it and feel guilty letting it go.”
