Amy Yasbeck

Amy Yasbeck (born September 12, 1962) is an American film and television actress. Her fantasy hottie claim to fame is her part as Maid Marian in Robin Hood: Men in Tights. Yasbeck was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. As a child, Yasbeck was featured on the package art for the Betty Crocker Easy-Bake Oven. Years later, in 2000, she was presented with a new Easy-Bake Oven on the show I've Got a Secret for which she was a regular panel member. She spent her elementary, middle and high school years at two different Catholic schools: Summit Country Day School and Ursuline Academy. She is noted for her long red hair and is of Irish and Lebanese heritage. After losing both of her parents, her father from a heart attack and her mother from emphysema, Yasbeck moved to New York. Amy Yasbeck has had starring roles in the sitcoms Wings, Alright Already, and Life on a Stick and in movies such as The Mask, Pretty Woman, and Robin Hood: Men in Tights and also in the movie Dracula: Dead and Loving It. She also played the part of Madison the mermaid in the Disney TV movie Splash, Too in 1988. She also played Olivia Reed for two years on the long-running daytime soap opera Days of Our Lives. Yasbeck is the widow of actor John Ritter, with whom she had worked in several projects. She first met him at director Dennis Dugan's house during a read-through of their 1990 movie Problem Child. According to Yasbeck, Ritter forced her to eat a bagel and cream cheese because he thought she was too thin. He also thought she was too young to play his wife in the movie (Ritter was almost 15 years Yasbeck's senior). Yasbeck and Ritter also starred together in Problem Child 2 (1991) and guest-starred together in an episode of The Cosby Show which aired in 1991. Ritter also guest-starred on Wings as Amy's estranged husband in the Season Seven episode "Love Overboard". The couple had a daughter, Stella, in 1998, and married in 1999. On September 11, 2003, Ritter died after collapsing on the set of his sitcom, 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter. The cause of death was an aortic dissection stemming from a previously undiagnosed congenital heart defect. The date of his death was their daughter's fifth birthday, the day before Yasbeck's forty-first birthday and six days before their wedding anniversary and his own birthday. Yasbeck gave her blessing to the continuation of the sitcom, 8 Simple Rules, where it was ultimately decided that Katey Sagal's character would assume the lead role as a widow. After her husband died, Yasbeck filed a $67 million wrongful death lawsuit against Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center and several doctors who treated him, alleging they misdiagnosed his condition and that contributed to his death. The case is currently in trial in Glendale, California. Several of the defendants have settled out of court for a total of $14 million, including Providence St. Joseph, which settled for $9.4 million. On March 14, 2008, a jury split 9-3 in favor of the doctors, clearing the physicians of any wrongdoing.
