What did Thurston Howell, III, of "Gilligan's Island", always call his wife?
Mrs. Howell (née Wentworth); referred to as "Lovey" by her husband. Lovey is a fictional character from the 1964 to 1967 television show Gilligan's Island. Played by Natalie Schafer, the character was a rich, spoiled socialite, married to Thurston Howell, III.
While Mr. Howell always called her "Lovey", the other castaways always called her "Mrs. Howell". There are only two times someone besides Thurston calls her Lovey: in the pilot, when the radio is announcing the missing people, the announcer says "Thurston Howell, III, and his wife, international hostess Lovey Howell"; and in the episode in which Gilligan thinks he wins the lottery and invites all the people into the Howells' club, The Professor greets Mr. and Mrs. Howell as Thurston and Lovey.
In Season.2-Episode.31:"Mr. and Mrs. ???", in which the Howells were having marital problems, she mentioned her maiden name was Wentworth.
