Bill Daily: A Better Neighbor In Real Life Than On TV

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Actor Bill Daily is best known for playing “wacky neighbors” on I Dream Of Jeannie and The Bob Newhart Show, but he’s a much better neighbor in real life than on the tube.

As Daily puts it, “I never borrow sugar. I’ll borrow a couple of hookers but I always bring them back.”

Daily currently lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and admits that while his real-life neighbors appreciate his neighborliness, it’s his wife who deserves the credit because, “she’s always cooking for people and watching their animals. I like being alone.”

Although his real-life neighbors don’t confuse him with his TV characters like his Newhart neighbor, Howard Borden, he admits he can say or do anything he wants because they just reply, “Oh, that Howard.”

Daily will be discussing the life as a wacky neighbor tomorrow night (May 4) on Top Ten: Wacky Neighbors, a special which debuts on TV Land.
