Connie Stevens was born Concetta Rosalie Ann Ingoglia on Coney Island in 1938.
Her father, Pietro Ingolia, whose stage name was Teddy Stevens, played bass in big bands, such as Stan Getz. Her mother, Eleanor Mc Ginley, was a band singer who had affairs with other men while her husband was on the road.

My father was predisposed to be an addict; so was my mother; so were we all' Eddie Fisher was a womanizer and divorced Connie in 1969.
But she always chose losers in men and married actor James Stacy in 1963.
He turned out to be a psychopath who burned Connie's baby pictures, cut off her hair when she was sleeping and was physically abusive. Ten years later, Stacy was convicted of child molestation.

My father was predisposed to be an addict; so was my mother; so were we all.'I think the reason you drink, smoke, eat, shop is that you’re trying to quiet that inner critic, that feeling of worthlessness, or lack, or inadequacy.' So when Joely was disappointed with her acting career, she 'dealt with that feeling by going home and having a bottle of wine'.
