Susan Blakely: Carol Burnett Was My Role Model

Posted: Updated:

She was an army brat called Susie Blakely .. Born in Frankfurt and living all over the world with her family. She moved to New York where she began a very successful modeling career, appearing in countless magazine and TV ads.

Then, as Susan Blakely in "The Lords Of Flatbush," she co-starred with a group of unknown actors that included Henry Winkler, Sylvester Stallone and Perry King.

Richard Strauss and Nick Nolte both pursued her in "Rich Man Poor Man" which was TV's highest-rated miniseries until "Roots" came along the following year.

Now, Susan is co-starring in the Lifetime movie "The Perfect Boyfriend" as a mom who begins to suspect that her daughter's boyfriend isn't what he seems.

"The Perfect Boyfriend" airs Friday night on Lifetime Movie Network.
