Why she might be annoying
In 1979, she dated notorious womanizer Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Deemed a 'wild child' by the media, she dismissed the reputation, stating, 'I like to get wild. But it's not murder, and I don't do drugs.'
She was thrice married and twice divorced, including a 16 month stint with the Chicago Bears Keith Van Horn (1988-89) and a five month romp with a DJ (1991).
Her first radio gig was in 1985 as a traffic helicopter reporter.
Her first movie, 'Odd Jobs,' seemed apropo as she had a difficult time holding on to a job for any length of time.
In 1998, she was rumored to be having an affair with President Bill Clinton, causing Monica Lewinsky to blow her stack in a jealous rage.
Why she might not be annoying
She dropped out of St. Lawrence University in 1981 to move to Hollywood, but returned and graduated a year later.
She acted in TV episodes of 'Matt Houston,' 'Three's Company' and 'Dynasty.'
In the 1990s, she dated such celebs as Warren Zevon,
Jim Belushi and Ron Perlman.
In March 1993, she teamed up with Robin Leach to co-host a two-hour national TV special about Madonna.
She suffered several seizures in 2005 and was diagnosed with brain cancer.
After treatment, it went into remission and she married a rock musician, living on a horse farm and doing work for Minneapolis radio station WCCO-AM.
She left radio to go on disability in 2009 because of her cancer's recurrence, her health deteriorating for two years until her death.
