Female Talk Show Host (from 80s or 90s) with Awesome Hair
November 29, 2017 9:15 AM   Subscribe

I'd like to show my hair dresser a photo of a female TV personality from my childhood who I remember as having awesome hair. She was a Caucasian lady with chin-length wavy dark hair with a lighter streak in the front. I think the show was a homey precursor to HGTV-type home shows. I remember her style being kind of preppy (sweater over a popped collar with a beaded necklace).

She didn't wear glasses. I think her name may have been Kitty something, though I may be grasping at straws with that one.

So far, I've ruled out:
- Kitty Carlisle
- Kitty Duchovney
- Sally Jesse Raphael
- Carol Duvall

I can't for the life of me remember her name or the name of her show. Any ideas?

If you don't mind saying, where would you have been living when you saw her? Just thinking it could be a local tv reporter/personality.

Kitty Bartholomew?

A search of "classic HGTV shows" leads me to Kitty Bartholomew, who definitely has that hairstyle.

Came in here to say Kitty Bartholomew, though you have to scroll through those images to find her younger incarnation when I think her streak was smaller?

Also if you're from LA there's KNBC news anchor Colleen Williams, who colors her hair now but had a great gray streak when she was younger.
