Yolanda & Bernie Kopell
When Bernie isn't sailing on The Love Boat (he plays Doc), he and his wife live in this cozy home deep in Los Angeles' San Fernando Valley -- a home she talked him into buying.
Street signs over the living-room fireplace spell out Mrs. Kopell's maiden name: Yolanda Veloz.
The dining room is adjacent to the main living room and overlooks surrounding hills. "We love the country feeling here," says Yolanda, "and so do our five dogs -- and one cat."
Pretty bedroom is done in rust, their favorite color. They have had some help decorating their nine-room house, but they have mostly done it themselves. It has been a labor of love.
