Harlee McBride is an actress and the wife of actor/comedian Richard Belzer since 1985.[1] She is best known for Young Lady Chatterley (1977), an R-rated film based on the erotic classic Lady Chatterley's Lover, and its 1985 sequel, Young Lady Chatterley II.

She has occasionally appeared in TV shows and movies, including as a medical examiner on Homicide: Life on the Street, which starred Belzer.

She and Belzer met in Los Angeles in 1981, when she was 31 and divorced,[2] with two daughters, Bree and Jessica.[3] McBride, who had been seen in Playboy magazine four years earlier as part of that year's sex-in-cinema feature, in conjunction with Young Lady Chatterley,[4] was appearing in TV commercials for the auto maker Ford and acting in free theater, when she met Belzer at the suggestion of a friend.[2] During the 1980s, she worked as a secretary at Disneyland.[5]

On October 12, 2014, McBride was disruptive on an Air France flight from New York to Paris. She was yelling, screaming and even threw a tray of food, and was handcuffed to her seat by cabin crew. The pilots made an emergency landing in Gander, Newfoundland[6] where she spent two nights in a local jail cell until she agreed to pay $10,000 (CAN) in bail.
