Loni Anderson Happily Ever After
It was a dream job for a teen girl: In high school Loni Anderson was hired by the Minneapolis Star Tribune to greet and pose for photos with visiting celebrities. One job perk? In 1963 she met Bob Flick, a folk singer whose group The Brothers Four had a hit song, "Greenfields." Recalls Anderson: "I was totally infatuated. I used to write Mrs. Loni Flick on my notebooks." It took four decades but Anderson's wish has finally come true. On May 17, 45 years to the day after they first met, Anderson and Flick were wed at the Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles.
Though the couple dated for seven months after they first met, Anderson, now 62, went on to Hollywood fame and three other husbands (including Burt Reynolds, whom she divorced in 1994). But she never stopped thinking about the crooner who got away. "Once a year I would pull out all his albums and play them," says Anderson. "I always kept wondering what happened to him." Finally, she tracked down a phone number for Flick on the Internet—and called him. Soon after, Anderson and the twice-divorced Flick fell in love all over again. "It was as if no time had passed," says Anderson. "He makes my heart flutter just like he did when I was 17. You know it when you find the one."
