Leeza Gibbons - Rotten Tomatoes

Leeza Gibbons



South Carolina native Leeza Gibbons got a degree in journalism from the University of South Carolina before becoming an anchor of the showbiz news show Entertainment Tonight in 1984. Gibbons became a household name almost instantly, interviewing celebrities and reporting on the latest Hollywood news and gossip long before the age of TMZ. Gibbons' striking screen presence also led to her appearing in acting roles in feature films such as Robocop, though the anchor most often made cameo appearances as herself -- as she did in 1991's He Said, She Said. In 1994, Gibbons began hosting her own daytime talk show, Leeza, which ran until 2000. She also started hosting a number of radio shows in 2004 and participated in the popular reality show Dancing with the Stars in 2007. She won the seventh season of the Celebrity Apprentice in 2015, playing for her own charity, Leeza's Care Connection.
