RIP: Dr. Joy Browne – Our Friend
Acclaimed syndicated radio host and clinical psychologist Dr. Joy Browne – named by Talkers Magazine as one of the “25 greatest radio talk show hosts of all time” has died, and Mike and I are mourning. Dr. Joy gave us the tools that were instrumental in helping sustain our relationship in the early years, as well as today. She also helped us in ordinary day to day living when we were stuck on a problem whether it was work, or family issues. We started listening to her in 1995, and it continued until her untimely death August 27, at age 71. Her sister said she was chatting with Dr. Joy about movies, munches and life. Her sister stopped talking, and the phone went dead. Nearly 10 years ago Mike and I ran into Dr Joy in Times Square. I was still living there, working on a lawsuit which was heading for trial. Mike was up for a weekend visit.
I had a blog back then too, it was the beginning of my “celebrity photographing” career as well. I chronicled my life as a paparazzi and my blog was called Confessions of a Paparazzi.

Smoochies, dr. joy browne
