A TOAST TO TINA!
Click here to access my friend Shaun’s tribute to Tina Louise’s outstanding TV guest star appearances from the ’60s through the ’80s. There was so much more to Tina than just playing Ginger on Gilligan’s Island and Shaun does an exceptional job proving why.
My favorite Tina move role was as the tennis-loving socialite Charmaine in The Stepford Wives. Below is the scene where her friends (played by Katherine Ross and Paula Prentiss) are astounded to discover that Charmaine not only gave her up cleaning lady but is allowing her husband to destroy her beloved tennis court.
