A Long-Rumored Story About Princess Diana Was Just Confirmed by Loni Anderson

Loni Anderson is opening up about some long-standing rumors!

The WKRP in Cincinnati actress made a virtual appearance on Andy Cohen‘s show Watch What Happens Live and addressed a rumor about her ex-husband Burt Reynolds and Princess Diana.

One viewer asked Loni if it was true that the then-Princess of Wales sent Burt a thank you note for helping to keep her out of the tabloids by monopolizing headlines with news about his divorce.

“Yes, that’s true,” Loni confirmed.

“No way!” exclaimed Andy.

Loni and Burt‘s separation was one of the uglier divorces in Hollywood. The pair married in 1988 and adopted a son together, Quinton. They announced their split in 1993 and a contentious legal battle ensued that played out in the media, with Burt slamming Loni‘s parenting and accusing her of infidelity.

Princess Diana also had a tumultuous year in 1993. In January the infamous “Camillagate” tapes surfaced, phone recordings of Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla. By December of that year, Diana had announced her plans to retire from public life.

Andy then asked Loni to address another long-standing rumor that she once maxed out Burt‘s credit card with a $45,000 limit in 90 minutes, one of the claims her ex-husband had made against her during the divorce.

“No, I never had an Amex from Burt,” she replied. “I only had my own, so no, that would be completely false.”
