It's Bailey's Birthday

And, therefore, a perfect excuse for me to post a picture of Jan Smithers, the actress who played Bailey on WKRP in Cincinatti and... well, you get the idea. She's 59 today. Happy Birthday, Jan Smithers!

I haven't heard an update on Jan since her accident. I hope she's doing better these days.

Have I told you before that I've met her? She lives in my hometown of Ojai, and she used to come into one of my favorite hangouts, the Ojai Brew Pub, all the time. This was a few years back, but she was still sweet and lovely as can be.

I have such a crush on her, you would not believe it.

Tom: I haven't heard anything either. That's neat that you met her and she was sweet. Very cool.

Dr. Monkey: I'd believe it, man. She's something special.

Bailey Quarters vs. Jennifer Marlow.

Bailey wins hands down. How could James Brolin go from Jan to Barbara Streisand?

Roger Green said...

When I worked at FantaCo in the day, it was unanimous: Bailey over Jennifer.

SamuraiFrog said...

Gilligan: I think Brolin wanted the attention or status or something. That's a beautiful woman he left for a symbol.

Roger: Definitely Bailey.

Just to be fair, Jan has made it clear in the past, Brolin didn't leave her for Streisand. They were already done by that time. Not that I know why I feel the need to be fair to Streisand.

Thanks for clarifying that. I saw there were a few years between the divorce and Streisand.
