Loni Anderson Happy To Be ‘Dazzlingly Terrible’

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – It’s good to have a goal and for Loni Anderson, it’s being “dazzlingly terrible.”

That’s what she’s striving for on Tori Spelling’s new comedy, So NoTORIous, where she plays the former 90210 star’s mom, Kiki.

Although the series is based, somewhat, in reality, Anderson insists her character isn’t anything like Spelling’s real mom but is a blend “of all the writers’ roll-your- eyes moments with their own mothers.”

Anderson gets to wear lots of gaudy jewelry and expensive clothes but she says the real highlight is “being dazzlingly terrible” in the things she says and does.

The show just debuted on VH-1 but Anderson says it’s already one of her favorites and has the growth potential of Jennifer Marlowe, the part she played on WKRP In Cincinnati.

Anderson feels the new role fits her like an old shoe because, “I’ve been describing this character to my agent for five years.”
