Lynda Carter (born Linda Jean Córdova Carter; July 24, 1953) is an American actress, singer, songwriter and beauty pageant titleholder who was crowned Miss World America 1972 and also the star of the TV series Wonder Woman from 1975 to 1979.
Carter has been married twice. Her first marriage was to her former talent agent, Ron Samuels, from 1977 to 1982.
In January 1984 Carter married Washington, D.C., attorney Robert A. Altman, law partner of Clark Clifford (and now CEO of ZeniMax Media). Carter and her husband have two children: James (born 1988), and Jessica (born 1990), and live in Potomac, Maryland.
In 1992 after a lengthy and highly publicized jury trial stemming from his involvement with the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, Clifford was acquitted. Carter was seen on the TV news with her arm around him, declaring, "Not guilty! Not guilty!" to the gathered reporters.
In 2003 Carter revealed that her mother had suffered from Irritable bowel syndrome for over 30 years, resulting in Carter touring the country as an advocate and spokeswoman. Lynda is also a staunch advocate and supporter of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Pro-Choice rights for women, and legal equality for LGBT people. She was the Grand Marshal for the 2011 Phoenix Pride & 2011 New York Pride Parades, as well as the 2013 Capital Pride Parade in Washington, D.C.
In early June 2008 while rowing out of the Potomac Boat Club, Carter spotted a body floating in the Potomac River. She called out to some fishermen and waited for the police to arrive. Carter stated that she "did what anyone would have done."
Later in June 2008 Carter admitted in an interview to People magazine that she had entered a rehabilitation clinic for treatment of alcoholism and had been sober for 10 years. In a statement when asked what the recovery process had taught her, Carter explained that the best measure of a human being is "how we treat the people who love us, and the people that we love."
