    (June 25, 1945- )
    Birth name was Sharon Kristin Harmon
    Daughter of sportscaster Tom Harmon and actress Elyse Knox
    Sister of actor Mark Harmon
    Married singer/actor Rick Nelson
    Mother of actress Tracy Nelson and singers Gunnar and Mathew Neslon
    Portrayed Kris Nelson in 'The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet Nelson' (1963-66) and Jean Reed in Adam-12 (1975)
    Appeared in the films 'Love and Kisses' (1965) and 'What Am I Bid?' (1967)
    Her first acting gig was portraying Rick Nelson's wife shortly after becoming his real-life wife.
    She was three months pregnant when she married Nelson.
    She and Rick had the weight on daughter Tracy's birth certificate lowered so they could claim she was born prematurely.
    Secret Service agents caught her and Ron Reagan, Jr. having sex on his parents' bed.
    Her youngest son Sam was placed in the custody of her parents for several years due to her drinking and erratic behavior.
    During her bitter divorce from Nelson, her parents openly sided with him.
    Rick's brother David, among others, accused her of dragging out the divorce proceedings to ruin Rick financially.
    During Rick Nelson's funeral, she went ballistic after learning she had been cut out of Rick's will and life insurance, and shoved daughter Tracy to the ground and started hitting her until others intervened.
    She claimed her erratic behavior was partly caused by the stress of raising four children with a husband who was usually away on the road.
    During her bitter battle with brother Mark Harmon over custody of her youngest son Sam, she was supported by her mother-in-law, Harriet Nelson.
    She kept custody of Sam. (Mostly because Harmon withdrew the case when Kris's attorney began asking Harmon's wife, Pam Dawber, questions about her alleged past cocaine use.)
    She became a painter, with her style likened to Grandma Moses.
    Collectors of her paintings include actress Mia Farrow, singer Dwight Yoakam and First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.
