In the early ’90s, Princess Diana became a tabloid favorite due to her rocky relationship with Britain’s royal family. The princess’ own disdain for the spotlight briefly relieved itself when news of the split between Burt Reynolds and Loni Anderson broke. Undoubtedly, tabloids rushed to the explosive drama between the two actors. Just three years away from her own divorce, the publicity break allowed Diana to breathe.

Burt Reynolds wrote in his memoir that after he and Anderson announced their split, “the press went into high gear.” Reynolds continued, “Princess Diana sent me a thank you note for keeping her off the cover of People Magazine.”
