Her personal favorite episode of "Three's Company" is titled "Cooking with Jack" (first aired on March 23,1983), where her character Terry, along with Janet, assist Jack on a TV cooking segment. She loved that episode, even though she acknowledged she did little, since her character stared into the camera with a frozen smile mesmerized, while Jack and Janet fall apart as they experience their own version of stage fright.
She said her years on the show Three's Company (1976) were the unhappiest in her professional career. She almost quit as soon as she was cast because she did not like the backstage atmosphere.
Was set to star in She's the Sheriff (1987) as the sheriff, but shortly before production began she was let go and Suzanne Somers was brought in as her replacement.

I was the black sheep, so I became very dramatic.
[about her first audition for Three's Company (1976) for the role of Cindy that she lost to Jenilee Harrison] I read for them, but they turned me down. They wanted someone younger. In Hollywood, you're over the hill when you are 25.
