A friend sat Lynda and her present husband, lawyer Robert Altman, together at a social dinner in the hopes that the two would hit it off. Performed many of her own stunts on "Wonder Woman" (1975) including hanging from a helicopter, to the nervousness of CBS, during the second season episode "Anschluss '77". While filming Battle of the Network Stars (1976) (TV), she poured champagne over the head of host Howard Cosell after her team won the tug of war contest not knowing he wore a hairpiece. Cosell was really upset. Later, whenever she saw him at a restaurant in New York, she would sent over a bottle of champagne and he always knew that it was from her. When asked, during her on-line Lens Express chat on November 8th, 1999, who she would like to portray Wonder Woman in a big screen movie version, she stated that she would prefer either actress Catherine Zeta-Jones or supermodel Cindy Crawford. In the film Sky High (2005), Lynda plays Principal Powers, the principal of the high school for the children of superheroes. Powers has comet-related powers. The son of one of her stunt doubles, Jeannie Epper, told his classmates that his mother was Lynda's stunt double on the series "Wonder Woman" (1975), but they didn't believe him, not even after he showed them a picture of his mother in the Wonder Woman costume from the set. When Lynda herself found out about this, she invited the boy's class to the set so they could see Jeannie herself in action. Half Irish, half Mexican Lynda returned to her first love, singing, by appearing in the play "Chicago" at London's West End Adeplhi Theatre on September 26, 2005 as "Mama Morton", the leather-clad women's jailer for an 8-week run.

When she was 17 she joined a band called 'The Relatives' (two of the members were cousins) which opened at the Sahara Hotel casino lounge in Las Vegas for three months. Because Lynda was under 21 she had to enter the casino through the kitchen. Gary Burghoff (who played Radar O'Reilly in "M*A*S*H") was the drummer. Hosts the Lynda Carter Golf Tournament for charity. According to a DVD commentary by Lynda Carter, she invented the "spin" move when Diana would transform into Wonder Woman.
