Rita Wilson (born October 26, 1956) is an American actress and producer.

Wilson was born Margarita Ibrahimoff (Bulgarian: Маргарита Ибрахимов, Greek: Μαργαρίτα Ιμπραίμοβ) in Los Angeles, California. Her father, a Muslim Bulgarian who worked at a racetrack, was born in Greece. Before immigrating to the U.S., he had lived in Bulgaria and Turkey; her mother, Dorothy, was born and raised in an ethnic Greek village (Sotira) on the Albanian side of the border. Wilson's family changed their surname from "Ibrahimoff" to "Wilson," which was a name of a local street in Southern California.

Wilson's career began with a guest appearance on The Brady Bunch, in a 1972 episode entitled "Greg's Triangle," which was followed by appearances on several shows during the 1970s and 1980s.
