Profile Bio Text
Loni Kaye Anderson (born August 5, 1946) is an American actress best known for her role as Jennifer Marlowe on the television sitcom WKRP in Cincinnati and as a former wife of Burt Reynolds (from 1988–93). Her divorce from Reynolds was a bitter, well-publicized debacle. Anderson was born in St. Paul, Minnesota to Carl K. Anderson and Maxine H. Kallin. As she says in her autobiography, My Life in High Heels, her father was originally going to name her "Leiloni", but then realized to his horror that when she got to her teen years it was liable to be twisted into "Lay Loni". So it was changed to just plain "Loni".
Her most famous acting role came as receptionist Jennifer Marlowe on WKRP in Cincinnati. Her pinup photo in a bikini became one of the best-selling wall posters of the 1970s.
Shortly after her divorce from Reynolds, she appeared as a regular in the final season (1993–1994) on the NBC sitcom Nurses. Anderson has been in various movies. She portrayed Jayne Mansfield in a made-for-TV biopic with Arnold Schwarzenegger. She teamed with Lynda Carter in the 1984 series Partners in Crime. Anderson made a series of cameo appearances on television shows in the late 1990s and early 2000s, such as the Spellmans` "witch-trash" cousin on Sabrina, the Teenage Witch and Vallery Irons` mother on V.I.P..
Anderson has two children: a daughter, Deidra Hoffman (from her first marriage), who is a school administrator in California; and a son, Quinton Reynolds, whom she and Burt Reynolds adopted. On May 17, 2008, Anderson married Bob Flick, one of the founding members of the folk band The Brothers Four. The couple had met at a movie premiere in Anderson`s native Minneapolis a few years after Flick`s group hit No 2 on the pop charts with "Greenfields" in 1960. The ceremony was attended by friends and family, including son Quinton Reynolds.
