Loni Anderson is jumping on the auction bandwagon by selling 65 gifts she received from her ex-husband Burt Reynolds, according to E! News.

This comes just a few days after Reynolds announced that he would be auctioning off more that 600 personal items.

It seems odd that the WKRP in Cincinnati actress is also auctioning off items, but she apparently is holding the auction to raise funds for her family.

The items to be auctioned include diamonds, fur coats, costumes, show props and even a nude portrait of the buxom bombshell.

"He loved art so he would go pick out a favorite artist and then he would commission them to do a portrait of me," she told Entertainment Tonight. "So pretty soon, there are a lot of portraits of me."

She is also selling the wedding dress she wore when she married Reynolds in 1988.

"It has all the romance and the tradition," she shared of the dress and the wedding day. "It was such a special day."

Reynolds apparently needs to auction his property because he is close to filing for bankruptcy, although the Boogie Nights actor vehemently denies the reports.

"I am simply selling some of my memorabilia that I have enjoyed for so many years but do not have use nor room for them anymore," he said. "Quite frankly, I am sick of so many pictures of myself in my own home."

Anderson said basically the same thing about her auction, adding that Reynolds is fully supportive of her decision to sell the gifts.

"We've been dealing with thinking about scaling back, what are we going to do with all our stuff?" she admitted. "So what are you going to do? Share it."
