all the girls quest. Sunday, 09-Apr-2000 16:23:40 this is just something i've always wondered... pretty much all the girls are retired from acting. why is this? did they get 'soured' on the business by their eie experience? did they just invest well w/ their money and decide they could just relax and enjoy? just curious.... does anyone know? jill Re: all the girls quest. Monday, 10-Apr-2000 18:03:53 I wondered about that a lot over the years myself. I know in Susan's case, she tried---REALLY TRIED--- to keep her acting career afloat in the 80s (went out on "calls", etc.)but it just wasn't happening for her. Do you think it was the same for some of the others? I guess LOVE BOAT and FANTASY ISLAND were still on in the early 80s and they provided jobs for a lot of former TV stars, but none of the shows that are on now seem to care about utilizing 1970s actors in guest starring roles anymore....Why is that?? They haven't ALL retired! It makes you wonder if any of the EIE girls (even the married and "retired" ones)are STILL going out on auditions from time to time...I imagine all their "Q Factors" were high in the business, so why weren't they allowed to continue on, like others have been able to do? Its kind of an injustice, but I guess its the nature of the acting business and there's nothing that can be done about it.

YET it seems marian ross, shirly jones and flo henderson still get plenty of work on sitcoms. so - who knows what seems 'cool' to casting agents nowadays. perhaps the girls did try and just gave up eventually when the work never materialized. who knows - many unlikely people have made comebacks over the years - perhaps it's time for the eie girls.!

The others are probably all retired. Missy Re: ANYMORE REUNION MOVIES ? Wednesday, 10-May-2000 02:01:31 As far as I know, there won't be any EiE reunion shows, but you never know if that's going to change in the future. I keep seeing old TV shows as subjects of ET and TV Guide and E! True Story with more frequency. Is there a saturation point in these old TV show revivals coming up soon? I'm afraid people are going to get tired of these things and tune them out. We got another TV reunion special coming up on CBS involving the Dukes of Hazzard. I'll be taping that while I watch the Daytime Emmys hosted by Susan Lucci (wow!). TV Guide panned the reunion, but these things are a matter of taste and fanship. Nobody has to do an old TV show reunion, although one show I would like to see a reunion more than EiE off the top of my head would be another Dallas reunion sequel. The writing was pretty good in the last two specials. It's not a matter if it's a good reunion, but what matters is if the former cast members enjoy doing it for all the right reasons.
