Leeza Gibbons Wiki Biography

Leeza Kim Gibbons was born on 26th March 1957, in Hartsville, South Carolina USA. She is a talk show host who rose to the prominence as one of the hosts of the television show “Entertainment Tonight” (1984 – 1995). Leeza Gibbons has been accumulating her net worth as a broadcaster since 1976.

So how rich is Leeza Gibbons? Over a period of more than 40 years, Gibbons’ net worth has reached the sum of $20 million, making her one of the multi-millionaires of the entertainment industry.

To give some background facts, the girl and her two siblings were raised in Irmo, South Carolina, a suburb of Columbia. Her mother, Jean Gibbons, worked as a state superintendent of education whereas her father, Carlos Gibbons, ran his own antique shop. She graduated from the University of South Carolina’s school of journalism and mass communication, which later certainly assisted her in gaining employment, which became a significant source of Leeza Gibbons’ net worth.

Leeza began her career as a co-host of the television series “PM Magazine” (1976 – 1980). Then, she gained recognition while hosting “Entertainment Tonight” (1984 – 1995) and co-hosted the syndicated daytime talk show “Leeza” (1993 – 2000). The television presenter continued her career hosting the talk show “Extra” (2000 – 2003). Despite hosting various shows on television, she has also taken part in several competitions broadcast on television. In 2007, she participated in “Dancing with the Stars”, but was the third one to be eliminated. In 2015, she took part in another reality competition, “Celebrity Apprentice”, and won this show, in the process raising $714,000 for her charity Leeza’s Care Connection. More, Leeza Gibbons has increased her net worth hosting extraordinary events like GOFTA awards alongside Nic Nolan, and the Telethon show alongside Christopher Quinten; both events took place in New Zealand.

In addition to this, Leeza has added to her wealth working on radio, hosting such shows as “Blockbuster Top 25 Countdown with Leeza Gibbons” (1991 – 1999) and “Leeza Gibbons’ Top 25 Countdown” (2001 – 2003).

Another source of Leeza Gibbons’ net worth is a business venture she has launched in a makeup line called Sheer Cover.

Furthermore, Leeza is a co-author of the book “Take Your Oxygen First: Protecting Your Health and Happiness While Caring for a Loved One with Memory Loss” (2009) together with Dr. Jamie Huysman and Dr. Rosemary Laird. In the book she shared the experiences of struggling with difficulties when her mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.

Leeza Gibbons is known not only for her work on television and radio, but also her significant contribution to charity in fund-raising for children. She was the recipient of the Congressional Horizon Award for this previously mentioned work. More, she is the winner of the Daytime Emmy Award which she received in 2013.

Finally, in the personal life of Leeza Gibbons, she has been married four times. In 1980, she married her first husband John Hicks but they divorced after two years. In 1989, she married the actor Christopher Quinten, however the marriage also lasted only two years, but produced a daughter. In 1991, Leeza married another actor Stephen Meadows, and they lived together until 2005 and have two sons. Finally, Gibbons married Steven Fenton in 2011.
