HOLLYWOOD - Lonnie Anderson recently said that it took her a while but she was able to get over the heartbreak of having her husband (Burt Reynolds) cheat on her.
She told Savannah Kettle with Glamboyant Magazine that when she divorced Burt back in 1994, she felt as if she'd had the entire weight of David Crosby, John Goodman, and Queen Latifah placed on her chest, her very ample chest as she noted smilingly.
She said that at first she blamed Burt, and then she blamed Pam (Seals), and then she blamed herself.
But she soon realized that she did nothing wrong and that all of the blame for the destruction of her marriage fell on the wide shoulders of Burt and the even wider shoulders of Miss Seals.
The WKRP in Cincinnati star said that it was a while before she could even kiss a man much less let him get to second base.
Lonnie is now 67, but she looks great. She said she got over the hurt feelings a long time ago and now she actually feels sorry for Burt since he has really hit the bottom (no pun intended).
She noted that Reynolds has always been very vain and the desire to stay looking youthful with plastic surgeries has backfired and he now looks like a male version of Joan "The Space Alien" Rivers.
Anderson told Miss Kettle that she was recently approached by a rep with The Epitome Television Network about appearing with Burt in a sit-com.
She said that it will be loosely based on their relationship and is called Loni and The Cheater.
Lonnie said that Burt called her up and asked her to please agree to do the show since he needs the money bad. He told he that he is about three weeks from having to go on food stamps.
SIDENOTE: Lonnie agreed to do the show with the stipulation that her name in the credits be twice as big as Burt's.
