American Actress. She made over 45 film and television appearances between 1956 and 1995. Due to her rotund figure, Leonard was often cast as a love interest who often intimidated her husband or boyfriend. Her first major appearance was as the wife of Three Stooges member Larry Fine in the film Husbands Beware. Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, Leonard made television appearances on such shows as Laverne & Shirley, Mork & Mindy and Married... with Children. Her most memorable was in a recurring role as William Conrad's wise-cracking secretary in Jake and the Fatman. She had small but memorable roles in Starman and Micki + Maude. Also during this time she became a regional celebrity in the Los Angeles Theatre circuit for her outrageous portrayal as a lesbian head matron in the play Women Behind Bars. She also did voices in the Hanna-Barbera version of the animated TV series Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventures. She was the daughter of late 1930s1950s character actor Hal Price. (bio courtesy of: Wikipedia)

You were so good as Al Bundy's library nemesis, Miss DeGroot! The young actor who played 9 year old Al Bundy was no slotch either!
