“When I met Sonny, I was with a girlfriend. We were sitting at this restaurant in L.A. Sonny was really attracted to my friend, not me, because she was 19, beautiful, and had all kinds of curves…My friend didn’t dance, so Sonny and I ended up dancing all night long. I just loved to dance. Then he moved into the apartment house next door to me and my beautiful girlfriend, on Franklin in L.A. We became friends. I told him I had been sick and had lost my job. He said, ‘Well, you can live in my place and cook and clean.’ He had twin beds, and I lied to him about my age.”
