I’ve mentioned previously that despite (or perhaps because of) the fact that she is a beautiful woman, Joanna has usually hated being complimented for her looks. Still, she was regularly told she looked like one of two famous women, either movie star Sophia Loren or singer Joanie Sommers. A photo we have of her as a teen indeed makes her looks like Sommers’ sister.
Probably most known for the song, “Johnny Get Angry,” Sommers performed many standards. This song has been sung by artists ranging from Frank Sinatra to Fiona Apple. Since both of us were fairly set in our ways — and somewhat flaky — when we got together, it suits us.
