Trivia (8)

She has two children: son, Gib Gerard, with ex-husband, Gil Gerard, of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century (1979) fame; and daughter, Prima Tesh, with husband John Tesh, composer and former co-host of Entertainment Tonight (1981). Prima was named for Connie's late father, Primo Sellecchia. She's of Italian origin.
Former lingerie and fashion model.
When she first met her future husband John Tesh, he had never watched her TV series Hotel (1983), but he had seen every single episode of The Greatest American Hero (1981).
Prior to her second marriage, to John Tesh, they had a traditional courtship--no sex or living together until their wedding night--and dated seriously for two years.
Auditioned for the lead in Galaxina (1980) and was seriously considered by the filmmakers as an ideal choice to portray the role. However, 1979 "Playboy" Playmate of the Year Dorothy Stratten ultimately got the part.
Best remembered by the public for her role as Christine Francis on Hotel (1983).
According to a "TV Guide" article published during her role on The Greatest American Hero (1981), she was fond of playing bizarre practical jokes, usually involving faking her own suicide or death. Reportedly, then-husband Gil Gerard, got so used to coming home and finding her lying in a pool of fake blood that he developed a critiquing system for her.
Connie Sellecca is a Italian.
