Biography

Pert and perky but still a "take charge" kind of gal, Richardson may best embody the ideal TV sitcom Mom for the 90s as co-star of the top-rated "Home Improvement" (ABC, 1991-99). She holds down a job, raises kids, and tolerates the testosterone-fueled notions and gadgets wielded by macho hubby Tim Allen. No stranger to episodic TV, Richardson had recurring roles in two short-lived series "Double Trouble" (1984) and "Eisenhower and Lutz" (1988), and then a two season run in "FM" (1989), playing a spunky radio talk show host.
