Personal Quote:

Trivia:

Her father, composer Jay Gorney, was born Abraham Jacob Gornetzsky in Bialystok (now Poland), to a Jewish family that left for the United States soon after. Her mother, Sondra Gorney, a public relations consultant, was born Sondra Karyl Kattlove in Louisiana, to Polish Jewish parents. See more »
