Her instant fame led to the dissolution of her second marriage and, by 1981, Bickell and Anderson had divorced.
The series was canceled in 1982, but Anderson used the momentum of her career to continue appearing in films and television. After starring opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger in the Jayne Mansfield biopic The Jayne Mansfield Story in 1980,
Anderson created her own production company and starred in a number of made-for-TV movies. But it was her role in the 1983 stock-car racing comedy Stroker Ace that changed the course of her life. While on set, she met and fell in love with co-star Burt Reynolds, who was a blockbuster star at the time. Anderson's performance in the film was largely panned, but her eventual marriage to Reynolds in 1988 put the duo in the spotlight as a Hollywood power couple.
Anderson's high-profile marriage to Reynolds began blissfully enough. The couple adopted son Quinton together, but then the relationship dissolved quickly into a nasty divorce. Anderson and Reynold's well-publicized custody battle over their son, and accusations of a painful and substance-abusive marriage made headlines until the couple's official divorce in 1994. Shortly after their split, Anderson began making television appearances again, such as the final season of the NBC sitcom Nurses (1993-1994).
In recent years, Loni has made guest appearances on television sitcoms such as Sabrina, the Teenage Witch and V.I.P. In 1997, she published her autobiography My Life in High Heels. She also made waves in her role as Tori Spelling's materialistic mom in So noTORIous (2006), which was met with disapproval from Spelling's real-life mother.
On May 17, 2008, Anderson remarried for a fourth time, this time to longtime friend Bob Flick. Flick was one of the founding members of the folk band The Brothers Four. The couple lives happily together in Hollywood, California.
