Interview wife of late TV icon Bob “Gilligan” Denver about her new memoir, their autistic son Colin
Denver Foundation’s work for special needs children and what made the Skipper’s “Little Buddy” her romantic leading man

The iconic television series Gilligan’s Island is shown somewhere in the world every hour of every day. Amazingly, the most famous “3 Hour Tour” in TV history is still sailing over 40 years later, with new generations of fans discovering the Castaways and the show’s namesake Gilligan, a role that made the show’s star Bob Denver into one of the most famous television personalities of all time. Now for the first time ever, Dreama Denver who happily reports that “I was married for nearly 30 years to the man the rest of the world knew as Gilligan” has released the touching memoir “Gilligan’s Dreams; The Other Side of the Island”. It chronicles the behind-the-scenes story of the family life of one of television’s most popular and enduring stars,who passed away in 2005. (The “Dreams” of “Gilligan’s Dreams” was Bob Denver’s nickname for Dreama) Dreama co-starred with Bob in several theatre productions, A Gilligan’s Island TV movie and in a television pilot opposite Bob (and a young Joey Lawrence) for famed Gilligan’s Island and Brady Bunch producer Sherwood Schwartz. She left her rising show business career behind to care for the couple’s infant son Colin, who was born severely autistic. Bob Denver also soon left his lucrative television career to be a stay-at-home dad for Colin, walking away from the fame and fortune of Hollywood. Dreama now oversees The Denver Foundation, helping the families of other special needs children. Dawn Wells, Mary Ann from Gilligan’s Island, appeared at a recent foundation fundraiser for the charity, as did America’s Got Talent winner Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. The energetic Ms. Denver also oversees www.bobdenver.com, where she keeps in touch with Bob’s loyal fans around the globe. She also co-hosts a show on Little Buddy Radio, an FM and online non-profit radio station owned and operated by the Denver Foundation.
