Her Hollywood friends included: J. Howard Marshall, husband of Anna Nicole Smith, Ernest Borgnine, casting director Marvin Paige, Joe Namath, Flip Wilson, Arlena Sue Farber, Will Sampson, Steve Osburn, Bonita Money, etc.[citation needed]

She sold real estate in the Los Angeles area and later married (in 1979–1980) producer Billy Fine, who some years later cast her in one of the films he produced called "Jungle Warriors" (1984).[citation needed]

Louisa bought a hotel on South Reeves in Beverly Hills and renamed it "The Saint Moritz Hotel" after herself.[citation needed]
