Early Life

Loni Kaye Anderson was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, on August 5, 1946, to Carl Anderson and Maxine Kallin. Anderson distinguished herself as a brunette beauty from a young age. Anderson was named Valentine Queen of her high school’s winter formal as a senior.

Anderson enrolled at the University of Minnesota to study art in 1963. She paid her way through school by winning beauty pageants, specifically the Miss Roseville pageant, which allowed her to represent her hometown at the Miss Minnesota pageant. She came in second place for the crown, but she won several other titles during this time, including Miss Thermo-Jac Clothing, Miss County Style Ford, and Queen of the Hole-In-One.

Anderson married fellow Minnesotan Bruce Hasselbeck in 1964, when she was 18 years old. Anderson and Hasselbeck welcomed their daughter Deidra shortly after their wedding. The romance, however, was short-lived, and Anderson and Hasselbeck divorced in 1966. Anderson was going through a difficult time because she needed to work as a teacher to support herself and her new baby while finishing her college education.

Transition to Acting

Anderson also became interested in acting and began appearing in local commercials and plays. Still dark-haired, she appeared in several productions in the early 1970s, such as Born Yesterday, Send Me No Flowers, Can-Can, The Star-Spangled Girl and Fiddler on the Roof.

In 1973, Anderson remarried another aspiring actor, Ross Bickell. The ambitious couple decided to move from Minnesota to Los Angeles in 1975 for more films and TV. Anderson dyed her trademark curls blonde during this time and landed smaller roles in shows such as Barnaby Jones (1973), The Bob Newhart Show (1972) and Three’s Company (1977).

Hollywood Starlet

Anderson’s big break in show business came in 1978, when she landed a role on the popular Cincinnati sitcom WKRP. Howard Hesseman, who played Dr. Johnny Fever, and Anderson, who played sultry radio station receptionist Jennifer Marlowe, became the show’s breakout stars. Anderson quickly became a sex symbol, and a pinup photo of the actress in a bikini was one of the best-selling posters of the 1970s. But, far from being a dumb blonde, Anderson insisted on playing her character as a bright, sensitive woman before agreeing to take the role. Her vision paid off, as the actress was nominated for two Emmys and three Golden Globes for her performance.

Anderson’s personal life was in shambles, despite her professional success. Her instant celebrity led to the dissolution of her second marriage, and Bickell and Anderson divorced by 1981.

Anderson used the momentum of her career to continue appearing in films and television after the series was canceled in 1982. Anderson founded her own production company and starred in a number of made-for-TV movies after starring opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger in the Jayne Mansfield biopic The Jayne Mansfield Story in 1980. Her performance in the 1983 stock car racing comedy Stroker Ace, however, changed the course of her life. She met and fell in love with co-star Burt Reynolds, who was a blockbuster star at the time, while on set. Anderson’s performance in the film was widely panned, but her subsequent marriage to Reynolds in 1988 elevated the couple to the status of Hollywood power couple.

Personal Life and Son

Anderson’s much-publicised marriage to Reynolds began blissfully enough. The couple adopted a son together, Quinton, but then the relationship quickly dissolved in a messy divorce. Anderson and Reynolds’ high-profile battle for custody of their shared son and allegations of a painful and drug-abusive marriage made headlines until the couple officially divorced in 1994. Shortly after their separation, Anderson began appearing on television again, such as in the final season of the NBC sitcom Nurses (1993-1994).

In recent years, Anderson has made guest appearances in television sitcoms such as Sabrina, the Teenage Witch and V.I.P. In 1997 she published her autobiography My Life in High Heels. She also caused a stir with her role as Tori Spelling’s materialistic mother in So noTORIous (2006), which met with disapproval from Spelling’s birth mother.

On May 17, 2008, Anderson married for the fourth time, this time to her longtime boyfriend Bob Flick. Flick was one of the founding members of the folk band The Brothers Four. The couple lives together in Hollywood, California.
