    This is the true story of the thirty tumultuous years I spent with Joey Heatherton and also an account of my current search to find her. Joey who? Well, if you are too young to know who Joey Heatherton is, then you are probably not reading this …because this is a especially for the thousands of Joey Heatherton fans around the world.

    I am about to share with you many of the most memorable and outrageous moments Joey and I shared beginning in 1958, when i first met Joey, until the present time. Some of these stories will hopefully make you laugh…and some of them may make you cry… But one thing is for sure. The story of Joey’s rise to stardom and her sudden fall from fame will surely give you an insight as to what this amazing talent is really all about. In between her rise and fall, Joey’s life encompassed the highest of highs and the lowest of lows.

    This is a token of the love and respect I have for Joey. It contains true, personal accounts of her life, her loves, and her demons during the time we spent toether. It tells of her life as a teenager attending Catholic school. It tells of her first sexual experience, her relationships with some of the most famous stars in the world. It will show you the highs (appearing at Caisars Palace with Frank Sinatra) and the lows ( her desperate fight to stem her addiction to prescription drugs.

    I will share some photographs of Joey that I took as we frolicked naked on a deserted island in the Bahamas. After reading this, I hope you have a better understanding of what made this extraordinarily, multi talented sex symbol tick.
    TO BE CONTINUED …MAYBE

    You are still FANASTIC ! The most beautiful woman in existence today! Iloved your talent as a dancer in my oungr years, and still consider you the best! Best wishes, and a long life to the most attractive won on the planet !

  12. Billy says:

    I remember workin on a construction site in the early 80’s in NYC & saw an extremely hot woman on a trapeze in her apartment in panties & bra. It distracted the whole job. I almost fell 27 floors leaning too far over the edge.. Was that you? Not a stalker just tryin to conferm an old & great memory. If yes, THANX.

  13. ace says:

    always loved her

    Have A HAPPY BIRTHDAY TODAY

  15. I remember a lovely, lively, jazzy little gal who all through the 60’s-70’s danced, acted and really tore it up. Looking online just today, I see some bonehead person has captioned a photo of Kathryn Grant Crosby, clearly signing copies of “My Last Years With Bing” (!!) and labeled it as Ms. Heatherton. LOL.. Wonder how the photographer credited with the picture feels? Anyway, Joey, wherever you are, please know that many of us remember you – and are totally clear you NEVER were married..hello??… to Bing Crosby – Heaven help us!

  16. As a ‘longtime sober and clean’, I’ve been thinking long and well about you, Joey. I hope first of all, that you are clean and sober as well. And I wish someday that you’d consider telling your story, warts, nightmare darkness, addiction and all. Far from scorn, I have nothing but respect for those of us who have come back from the edge. One of the things we recovering-folks do is openly talk about our struggles, not to ‘grandstand’, but rather – to share. And in that sharing-we all feel a little less frightened, a little less alone. You were a delight, a true shining star. But, it cost dearly, as fame often does. From my heart: I wish you everything good – and hope one day to read your memoirs. Joey, think about telling others what your have been through – and what you have learned. God bless.

    Happy Birhtday, beautiful lady. My husband met you, Bob Hope, Anita Bryant and Raquel Welch in Viet Nam.
    Thank you for your love and support of our troops.

  18. Bob Mahon says:

    I was at your “Coming Out” (Debutatnte) celebration at Aldecress Country Club. Served your Dad a few times too.
    Always liked you.
    How are you doing now.

  19. Robert1202 says:

    Saw you many times on tv and a chance to see you in person at the Holiday House in Pittsburgh PA. I had a front row seat and was the best show i ever saw in my life. Never been in a front row seat in my life. Yes i was in love with you. Always wondered what happened to you and my friend sent me this. I am glad you are still here with us and wish you a happy birthday and many more. Please go on dancing with stars or some sitcom so we can see you again.

    I lived with my friend, Nance D. in Las Vegas in the mid-70’s. We girls went to the local Vegas disco one nite and I met a handsome guy from New York, who swore I was Joey Heatherton. I gave him my phone number at Nance’s and he phoned me the next day. I confessed that I was who I was, not Joey H., but he kept saying I was lying to him. So, Joey Heatherton, I was to someone for a little while. I had long blond hear and a pretty baby face, I guess, and was flattered that someone thought I was Joey Heatherton! She was a real firecracker back then. Oh that sweet bird of youth!!!
