Personal Quote:

[Who said in 1968 on her refusal to publicly discuss the political career of her ex-husband, Ronald Reagan]: It's not because I'm bitter or because I don't agree with him politically. I've always been a registered Republican. But it's bad taste to talk about ex-husbands and ex-wives, that's all. Also, I don't know a damn thing about politics. See more »

Trivia:

Was also a friend of John Forsythe. Coincidentally, Wyman starred on Falcon Crest (1981), after Forsythe starred on Dynasty (1981), in the same year. See more »
