I Dream Of Jeannie

NEW YORK — Barbara Eden says she's been bottled up long enough.

The 75-year-old former star of "I Dream of Jeannie" is writing a memoir to be published by Crown Archetype.

Crown Archetype Vice President Tina Constable says "Jeannie Out of the Bottle" will be published next spring.

Eden co-starred with Larry Hagman in the '60s TV series about a beautiful genie named Jeannie. Hagman played the astronaut who found her on a beach and is constantly trying to keep her existence a secret.

She said Tuesday in a statement that "it's time for me to pop the cork and talk about the amazing people I've been fortunate enough to meet along the way."

Archetype is an imprint of the Crown Publishing Group of Random House Inc.
