Bonus Trivia

.

"Mary Hart is the most competitive person I know. She's addicted to success." Linda Bell Blue, a producer on "Entertainment Tonight" quoted in a September 2000 A&E "Biography" profile.

.

With actress Deidre Hall and producer Cheri Ingram, Hart owned a production company which specialized in video resumes for actors and on-air personalities.

.

One of the oddities among news stories in 1992 was the revelation that Mary Hart's voice literally made at least one TV viewer ill. As it turns out, Hart's voice has just the right pitch and timber to trigger a woman's epileptic fits. Hart herself took the news with great good humor and, as might be expected, all the late-night talk show hosts had a ball with the item. Comic Jerry Seinfeld went so far as to feature a skit based on the story on his series "Seinfeld".

.

Hart's legs are reportedly insured with Lloyd's of London a la Betty Grable for the amount of $1 million.
