She was soon 'discovered' and suddenly was under contract with Warner Brothers for the late 1950s television show 77 Sunset Strip.
Connie and co-actor Edd Byrnes released a single in 1959 that they sang on the show, which resulted in her first gold record - Kookie, Kookie, Lend me Your Comb! Her sex kitten career was suddenly soaring and she was playing gigs coast to coast.
'I was definitely a kid who knew what it was and why it was there', she writes.
Connie, always the sex kitten, also developed a drug habit, enlisting the help of a young Joely to roll her joints.
The family's drug problem also seeped into the life of her half-sister Carrie Fisher, and one day the late actress turned up to Joely's home high, making Joely realize that addiction 'would turn out to be a family trait'.

The crooner was a man consumed with his drug and sexual addictions, even fondling his caregivers in his later years.
