Loni Anderson – Knockout Blonde!
Written by Rebeka Knott
Given her poise and beauty, it is no surprise that her mother, Maxine (Kallin) Anderson, was a model. She followed in her mother’s footsteps doing some modeling as well as entering and winning beauty pageants.
Somewhere along the line she found an interest in acting. It wasn’t long before she was performing in local theatre and commercials.
Although you may remember her from the sitcom guest appearances, Loni Anderson is probably best known for her role as Jennifer Marlowe on the hit series, WKRP in Cincinnati. The series that made her famous aired from 1978 – 1982.
When the show ended in 1982, Anderson’s career cooled off. She dabbled in some other notable roles but never gained the success she had with WKRP in Cincinnati.
Given her talent and looks, Anderson’s career was modest; but she is certainly one of those actresses we will never forget!
