Lee and husband Fred A Rappoport had owned the home for a long time and parting with it will be surely difficult. Lee had a bright Hollywood and Broadway career. She is the only star among the whole cast of "Knots Landing" to have appeared in all the episodes of the show. However, after the show ended, Lee has not taken up any major projects.
