We all remember Jennifer Marlowe from the sitcom WKRP; the sexy receptionist role was played by Loni Anderson and ever since then she became everyone’s favorite, earning herself two Emmy and three Golden Globe nominations for her performance.
The ageless American actress won many beauty pageants and even represented her hometown at the Miss Minnesota competition when she was younger.
From a young age, many knew she was born to be famous and will always be in front of the camera; and they weren’t around as the born brunette at a young age started being in front of the camera.
She got married when she was to Bruce Hassleback and they had their first child, Deidra, but divorced in 1966, just two years after their marriage.
She made her debut in the movie Nevada Smith in the year 1966 and it was hard for her to get movie roles.
She moved to L. A with her husband Ross Brickell in 1975 with the hope of getting movie roles and she got minor roles in shows like Three’s Company, Barnaby Jones, and others before she played the role of Marlowe that brought her to the spotlight. She gained popularity overnight and she never left the Spot.
Loni’s third marriage to Burt Reynolds was considered the best thing to ever happened to her, the duo was dominating couples and was always in the spotlight. She met Reynolds on the set of Stroker Ace and their divorce sparked a media frenzy as they were loved by many.
Loni’s fourth marriage seemed like she has found the love of her life. She said he’s the man he could have married way back in 1963, but then maybe she couldn’t have met all the wonderful people she has in her life. They met in the most gruesome way, but it was all destiny at play. They are bought to live their best life in California.
Loni turned 75 in August this year and it looks like she’s aging backward. She’s living a healthy lifestyle and she’s defying all odds.
The grandmother said she wants to change people’s perception of grannies and she has been monitoring her diet and exercising regularly.
She’s tired of the stereotype.
Deidra, Loni’s daughter was diagnosed with sclerosis in 2009, and Loni never left her side even for a moment.
