Mary Hart Credits Oklahoma City for Her Start in Entertainment

Peggy Gandy Published: March 13, 1991

Hart said she couldn't be happier both with her personal and professional lives. She married Bert Sugarman about two years ago. He has a television production background, but "he's in the cement and fast food business now," Hart said.

Hart said she rises about 6 a.m. and works out on either a skiing simulator or stair-climbing machine before reporting for work about 8 a.m. She tapes her show each day at noon "before it goes out via satellite to the rest of the country at 1 p.m." She works with a staff of 125 people which Hart said, "has grown into a family."

A wardrobe consultant shops for most of the clothes she wears on the show, buying them through Lillie Rubin, "who has been with the show since it started."

Many people think of Hart, who is from South Dakota and is a former schoolteacher, as being homegrown in Oklahoma.

"Actually I was homegrown in television in Oklahoma City," Hart said. "This is where I really got my feet into entertainment, particularly in television." BIOG: NAME:
