Another round of "Who Am I?"
I was born in Orlando Florida in 1956 to a single mother. Mom later remarried, my stepfather adopted me; I've gone by his last name ever since. While in high school I competed in the Miss Florida contest and won. I continue to hold the title of the youngest winner in the history of the pageant.
From 1986 to 1991 I played on a highly popular CBS sitcom in which I played one of two sisters and one of four businesswomen. My role earned me two Emmy nominations but my weight gain eventually became more of an issue than my ability to act or make people laugh.
My primary residence (where I live with my husband) is in Los Angeles but I have several other homes, including one in New Orleans.
Who am I?
[Answer for a chance to win a book from my bookshelf. Name will be picked at the end of the week. Last week's winner was Kathleen Bruner!]
