The Riches of Lisa Hartman Black

How rich is Lisa Hartman Black? As of mid-2024, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $5 million. While she’s gained income through her music releases, it’s her work in soaps that brought her fame, and a huge boost in net worth.


Early Life and Career Beginnings

There is very limited information about  Lisa’s early years, she hasn’t revealed much before her career as an actress. There’s no information regarding her family, education, and childhood. She was interested in an acting career at a young age, which led to television appearances, mostly in minor roles.

She starred in the 1977 series entitled “Tabitha” – a spin-off from “Bewitched” – but it was short lived, lasting only a season. She made numerous guest appearances over the next few years, leading to playing the character Neely O’Hara in the television remake of “Valley of the Dolls”. The story is based in the 1966 novel of the same name written by Jacqueline Susann, noted for being the biggest selling novel of that year – over 31 million copies – actually making it one of the best-selling works in publishing history.

Breakthrough and Rise to Fame

In 1982, Hartman Black made her breakthrough when she was cast in the prime time soap “Knots Landing”, in which her character started romances with the characters of Ted Shackelford as well as Michael Sabatino. The show was a spin-off from “Dallas”, and followed the lives of four married couples living in a cul-de-sec in a fictitious coastal suburb in Los Angeles. The show featured a lot of storylines such as rape, assassinations, murder, criminal investigations, drugs, and the like.

Her character was very popular with the audience, and there was a huge uproar from the public when her character was killed off-screen after a year, due to which she was brought back as another character, who later married Alec Baldwin’s character. She stayed with the show for a total of four years before she was released, as there were no longer any storylines for her.

While she worked on acting roles, she also started releasing music, eventually four solo albums. She’s worked with Kirshner Records, RCA Records, and Atlantic Records during her career,  as well as performing on several shows such as “Solid Gold”, but none of her solo releases were commercially successful.

The only hit she achieved was a duet called “When I Said I Do” with Clint Black, which reached the top of the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks Charts, leading to a Grammy Award nomination.

Latter Career

Lisa is also known for co-hosting the television special celebrating the 30th anniversary of Universal Studios, called “Universal Studios Summer Blast”. During the latter part of her career, she took fewer acting roles, and did a few more musical projects. In 2011, she released the album “Lisa Hartman, Hold On” on CD, before working on the album “Letterock”. Her last album release is entitled “’Til My Heart Stops” in 1987.

One of her last acting projects was a starring role in “Flicka: Country Pride”, which was released by Twentieth Century Fox direct-to-DVD, and is the sequel to “Flicka 2” which was released in 2010. Other stars in the film include Clint Black, Kacey Rohl and Siobhan Williams. Since then, she has not taken any new acting projects, which has led many to believe that she has retired from the entertainment industry. However, she made an appearance with her husband in seven episodes of “The Masked Singer” in 2020, but still hasn’t made any official announcement about retirement, and it’s not known if she’ll make another return.

Personal Life and Social Media

For her personal life, Lisa has been married musician Clint Black since 1991. Her husband is known for his work in country music, rising to fame in the late 1980s with his debut album “Killin’ Time” which produced four straight number one singles. After a slowdown in momentum, he created more chart hitting singles in the 2000s. They have a child together, and initially lived in Laurel Canyon, Los Angeles, before later moving to Nashville, Tennessee, but it is not known if they continue to reside there.

One of the reasons why there are very few details regarding her past and present endeavors is due to the lack of any online presence; she doesn’t have accounts on any of the major social media websites including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

She mentioned in an interview that she had a happy childhood, and one of the reasons she became exposed to the entertainment industry was that her mother who was a publicity agent for Hollywood. Her mother insisted that she would become a star, and supported her career. Apparently she has also done some theatre work, though it is not as popular as her on-camera roles.
