Knots Landing, Married to Clink Black
BiographyLisa Hartman (born June 1, 1956 in Houston, Texas) is an actress.
She made her first big splash in television in 1977 in the TV flop Tabitha; the belated spin-off of the 1960s sitcom Bewitched. Lisa played the now grown-up Tabitha Stephens, who tried making it on her own without using her magic powers. After that series' cancellation, she did several TV series guest spots and appeared in the 1981 CBS TV remake of Jacqueline Susann's Valley of the Dolls. She played singer/actress Neely O'Hara, a role portrayed in the original 1967 film by Patty Duke.
She then starred in the primetime soap Knots Landing as rock singer Ciji Dunne (1982 – 1983). After the Ciji character was murdered, fan outcry was so strong, Hartman was rehired to return to the series the following year, this time as Ciji lookalike (with familiar initials) Cathy Geary (1983 – 1986). After "Knots," she went on to star in numerous TV movies and well as the lead in the feature film Where the Boys Are '84 produced by Allan Carr.
In 1991, she married country star Clint Black, with whom she has a daughter, Lily Pearl Black, born in 2001. Now credited as Lisa Hartman-Black, she has recorded four solo LPs that included contributions from successful writers and producers including Jeff Barry, Dobie Gray, Bryan Adams, Rick Springfield and Holly Knight but met with little success. Musically, she is most noted for her Grammy-nominated duet with her husband entitled "When I Said I Do" which hit number one on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts on December 18, 1999, holding the top spot for two non-consecutive weeks. That duet ranked #11 on CMT's 100 Greatest Duets in Country Music in 2005. Clint later recorded a second duet with his wife, called "Easy For Me to Say", which peaked at #27 on the country music charts in 2002.
