Jean Kasem

Biography: Impassioned devotees of late-'80s prime-time television will have little difficulty identifying actress Jean Kasem; she achieved her most memorable and enduring role as flighty and buxom platinum blonde Loretta Tortelli, the second wife of sleazy TV repairman Nick Tortelli (Dan Hedaya), first on Cheers and then on its very short-lived spin-off, The Tortellis (January -May 1987). A native of Portsmouth, NH, Kasem began her career with bit roles on series including We Got It Made, Matt Houston, and Alice, and then (after The Tortellis promptly folded) continued to do guest-starring turns on various series, and bit roles in telemovies, through the early 2000s. Off-camera, the actress married DJ Casey Kasem in 1980.
