More about the relationship

For now Joey’s marital status is single.

In 1969, Joey married the wide-receiver Lance Rentzel.  And what was supposed to be a happy married life soon devolved into a nightmare. A year into marriage, Lance was arrested for indecent behavior towards a 10-year-old girl.

Although he pleaded guilty and accepted psychiatric treatment, it was Joey who was devastated and in 1972 the divorce was finalized.

Post-Divorce Trauma

After the divorce, her on-screen persona rubbed onto her personal life. The divorce triggered an avalanche of misdemeanors including possession, assault and unprovoked aggression. Though most of the charges were later dropped, her career suffered.

Today Miss Heatherton has regained her composure and matured. She still is the once-vibrant teenager that she was. Joey has a lot going on.
