Loni Anderson, the 1980s sex pot sitcom star, is back in the life of Jupiter area actor Burt Reynolds — for better or worse.

Anderson, who played the dumb blond in old WKRP in Cincinnati, has popped up in the foreclosure lawsuit that targets the famed big screen hero’s home in the Martin County town of Hobe Sound.

Anderson, who’s now 67, was married to the star of Deliverance and Boogie Nights from 1988 to 1993 and lived with him at the Intracoastal-side home. They adopted a son, Quinton Reynolds, and co-starred in a NASCAR cult classic Stroker Ace.

Their divorce filed in Palm Beach County, however, was so acerbic and nasty that it played to a worldwide audience — and caused Reynolds to file for bankruptcy.

Twenty years later, Anderson’s on Reynolds’ side!

She’s been named as defendant in the foreclosure action that Merrill Lynch undertook against Reynolds in 2011, and continues today. The bank claims Reynolds quit paying his $1.2 million-mortgage. He’s been trying to sell the digs since 2007. The 12,500-square-foot home is now on the market for $4.9 million.

Anderson, according to records, owns a $300,000-mortgage on the house as part of their divorce settlement.

As a part-owner she, too, risks losing the mansion!

Anderson was served at home in Beverly Hills last month and has lawyered up to fight the bank alongside Reynolds.

    Do your homework before you write an article. Loni played the smartest person at the radio station. Wow. You just lost all credibility.

    I’ve never been on this site before, but I immediately noticed the major mistake in the “dumb blonde” (even spelling blonde incorrectly) in regards to her character. She was the most intelligent of the cast and the highest paid. I hope her life situation goes well for her. I am now enjoying “WKRP in Cincinnati,” in reruns – watching all those I missed because I was working two jobs back then. She says marriage isn’t where she shines, but I think the men were all jerks!
