The original blonde bombshell!
Loni Anderson rose to fame for her role as sultry receptionist Jennifer Marlowe on hit '70s sitcom "WKRP in Cincinnati." She was reportedly offered the role after producers saw a photo of her in a red swimsuit.
And what's not to love? Loni's voluminous blonde locks, million-dollar smile and perfect physique easily made her one of the sexiest actresses on TV at the time.
And while she was clearly one of the most beautiful stars of her generation, Anderson is still as stunning today! The actress recently made a red carpet appearance at a Beverly Hills charity gala, and she looks absolutely ageless at 71 years old (yes, 71).
Loni showed off her striking figure in a tight, long-sleeved LBD that also flashed a bit of cleavage. It looks like the blonde beauty was living life on the wild side that night as she also chose to rock a black cowboy hat with her ensemble!
After "WKRP in Cincinnati" ended its four-year run in 1982, Anderson stayed in the spotlight -- both for her acting career and her dramatic personal life.
She teamed up with Lynda Carter, the original Wonder Woman, in the '80s television series "Partners In Crime." The blonde beauty also landed a number of roles in television films like "Letter to Three Wives" and "Sorry, Wrong Number."
One of her most noteworthy TV movie role was in "White Hot: The Mysterious Murder of Thelma Todd." She garnered huge praise for her portrayal of comedian and actress Thelma Todd.
Years later, she also made several appearances on hit '90s show, "Sabrina the Teenage Witch."
Anderson has been married four times, and her volatile relationship with Burt Reynolds made the most headlines. The two were known as one of the most glamorous couples in the '80s, but a book penned by Reynolds paints Anderson in a not-so-positive light.
"I gave her a platinum American Express card with a $45,000 credit limit. She maxed it out in half an hour," Burt wrote in his tell-all book.
He also revealed that when they split in 1993, Princess Diana wrote him a thank-you note for "keeping her off the cover of People magazine."
A lot of mud was thrown during the divorce -- he accused her of infidelity, while she accused him of being abusive. Yikes!
She is currently married to Bob Flick, one of the founding members of the folk band The Brothers Four.
While Loni has stepped away from acting, it seems like she's very active in the Los Angeles philanthropy scene as her red carpet appearances in recent years have been at charity galas. Her daughter, Deidre, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2002, and they have worked together to raise awareness for the debilitating autoimmune disorder.
