Davenie Johanna Heatherton was a daughter of Ray Heatherton who was Broadway star, and Davenie Heatherton, and earned her nickname Joey in her childhood days, as a combination of her names. Her older brother, Dick became disc jockey. She went to Saint Agnes Academy which is a catholic grade and high school.

Joey`s career began while she was still a child, appearing in her father`s show “The Merry Mailman”. Afterwards, she made her Broadway debut in “The Sound of Music”, and the same year started appearing on TV in “The Perry Como Show”. During the early years of her career, Joey had numerous appearances in other variety shows, such as “The Dean Martin Show”, “Andy Williams Show”, “The Ed Sullivan Show, “The Hollywood Palace”, and “This is Tom Jones”, among others, all of which increased her net worth, and her popularity as well.

In the 1960s, she made her screen debut in an episode of the TV series “Route 66” (1960), which was followed by an appearance in “The Virginian” three years later. She made her film debut the same year in “Twilight of Honor”, and continued to appear in films during the 1960s, including “Where Love Has Gone” (1964), “My Blood Runs Cold” (1965), “Of Mice and Men” (1968), and “The Ballad of Andy Crocker” (1969), all of which increased her net worth to a large degree.

With the beginning of the 1970s, her popularity began to decline, but she still stayed active as an actress until the 2000s, appearing in such productions as “Bluebeard” (1972), “The Happy Hooker goes to Hollywood” (1977), “Cry-Baby” (1990), and “Reflections of Evil” (2002), which certainly added further to her net worth.

Joey`s net worth also benefited from her work as a singer; she released one album, entitled “The Joey Heatherton Album” (1972), which spawned the single “Gone” that spent 15 weeks on the Billboard`s Hot 100 chart, and reached No. 24.

Regarding her personal life, Joey was married to American Footballer Lance Rentzel, the Dallas Cowboys wide receiver, from 1969 until divorcing in 1972. She has had multiple problems with the law; in 1985 she refused to pay $4.906 for hotel and spa, and a year later she was arrested and charged with the stabbing of her ex-boyfriend and manager Jerry Fisher, fortunately for her, Jerry dropped the charges, and she was free to go.
