Mary Therese Cadorette (born March 31, 1957) is an American actress best known for playing John Ritter's live-in girlfriend, flight attendant Vicky Bradford on the short-lived 1984 Three's Company spin-off, Three's a Crowd.

Early life/background[edit]

Cadorette was born in East Hartford, Connecticut on March 31, 1957. Cadorette started studying dance when she was five years old and later entered various dance competitions and studios. Cadorette was Miss Connecticut 1975 in the Miss America 1976 pageant.

Education[edit]

Cadorette graduated with a BFA in Dramatic Arts and Theater from the University of Connecticut[1] in 1979.

Theater and film credits[edit]

Cadorette performed in multiple dinner theatres with the USO. She also spent three and a half years on Broadway as an understudy for the lead role of Peggy Sawyer in the iconic broadway smash musical 42nd Street. She later took over the role. In 1990, she landed the recurring role of Margaret Turner on Night Court.

Cadorette has been in multiple films, including Stewardess School, and The Rat Pack. In the 1980s, she was also seen on a number of game shows, including The $25,000 Pyramid, Super Password, and Body Language.

Later career/return to Connecticut[edit]

Cadorette owned and operated her own restaurant in Los Angeles (until her departure in the late 1990s) called "Mary's Lamb", that was frequented by many celebrities.

In 1999, Cadorette left California and moved back home to Connecticut to take care of her mother who had suffered a stroke. Her mother died eight years later.

The Chapeau Rouge Dance Project[edit]

Cadorette and two friends, whom she had known since they were in dance school as children, decided to take up dancing again and share their craft and experience. They formed "The Chapeau Rouge Dance Project" encouraging former, retired, (and often older) dance students to attend classes in the dance studio that they rented.[2]

Nug and Bug Antique Collectibles[edit]

In 2014, Cadorette opened her antique store in Granby, Connecticut called Nug and Bug Antique Collectibles.[3]

Personal life[edit]

Cadorette was formally married to Michael Eisen in 1982. Later, she married William Harris (born March 16, 1948), and went by the name Mary Cadorette-Harris. Harris died on October 15, 2010.[4] On November 1, 2015, she married her childhood sweetheart Michael Daly and now goes by the name Mary Cadorette-Daly.[5]
