Kathy Kinney spent her childhood in her hometown, where she was raised by her father, Harold Kinney, who worked as an automobile dealer, and her mother, Marian; her father passed away when she was 15. Two years after matriculation, she began working at the California Conservation Corps, until 1974, when she left the program and enrolled at the University of Wisconsin–Stevens Point. In 1976, she moved to New York City, where she was hired at the WCBS-TV channel as a secretary. Parallel with that job, she also worked as a stand-up comedian, performing in a number of night clubs, which helped her to develop her improvisational comedy skills. Soon, she became the teacher of improve classes, and her acting career began.

Kathy made her debut appearance in the role of Joan in the film “Parting Glances” (1986), directed by Bill Sherwood, marking the beginning of an increase of her net worth. Two years later, she starred in several film titles, including “Promised A Miracle”, “Scrooged”, and “Inherit The Wind”, all of which increased her popularity. Thus, in 1989 she was selected for the role of Miss Goddard in the TV series “Newhart”.

When the filming of the TV series was ended, Kathy portrayed Blaire Kendall in the 1990 film “Arachnophobia”, after which she only had guest-starring roles in such TV series as “The Larry Sanders Show” (1992), “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures Of Superman” (1996), and “General Hospital” (1998), with the notable exception of 1995, when she won the role of Mimi Bobeck Carey in the TV sitcom “The Drew Carey Show”, which lasted until 2004, starring alongside Drew Carey and Diedrich Bader. The show reached enormous success, which added a considerable amount to her net worth. Kathy reprised the role of Mimi in the TV film “Rock & Roll Back To School Special” in 2001.

Her next big role came in 2005, when she was cast as Lisa Lathers in the film “Lenny The Wonder Dog”. Two years later, Kathy was selected to play Officer Bobbi Bowman in the TV series “My Name Is Earl”, alongside Jason Lee, Ethan Suplee and Jaime Pressly in lead roles. To speak further about her acting career, in 2009 she began to appear regularly as Bunny in the TV series “The Secret Life Of The American Teenager” (2009-2013), and most recently, she guest-starred in an episode of “Baby Daddy” (2016). Her net worth is certainly still rising.

Additionally, Kathy also tried herself as a voice artist, providing her voice to such TV series as “Big Guy And RustyT Boy Robot” (1999), “3-South” (2002), and “Fillmore!” (2003), then the character Rhonda in the animated TV series “The Penguins Of Madagascar” (2009-2011), all of which increased further her wealth.

When it comes to Kathy Kinney’s personal life, there is no information about it in the media, except that she is married.
