Jeannine Riley (born October 1, 1940 in Madera, California, USA) is an American actress.

The shapely strawberry blonde actress has specialized in playing voluptuous Southern girls and appeared in guest roles on numerous television series (Route 66, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., The Wild Wild West) and a few feature films such as The Big Mouth (1967) and Electra Glide in Blue (1973).

She is perhaps best known for her role as Billie Jo Bradley on the first two seasons of the CBS sitcom Petticoat Junction (1963–1965). Riley left the series in 1965 to pursue movies, and she was replaced by Gunilla Hutton for season three and by Meredith MacRae from seasons four to seven. She also had a regular cast member role on the comedy variety series Hee Haw (1969–1971).

She played Lulu McQueen (a take-off on Ginger Grant, played by Tina Louise, from Gilligan's Island) on the western sitcom Dusty's Trail, which aired from 1973 to 1974.
