DATED Joey

SEASON 2

DATING TYPE The Stalker

THE LOVE STORY Delusional fan Erika begins stalking her favorite daytime soap star, Joey. Though he's flattered initially, he flees a creepy dinner date when he realizes that Erika truly believes he's his soap opera character.

FUN FACT She was the first ever winner of the Worst Actress Razzie Award, for 1980's ''Blue Lagoon.''

POST-''FRIENDS'' Her guest spot was so well received, NBC gave her her own sitcom, ''Suddenly Susan.'' Sadly, though it lasted from 1996 to 2000, it didn't live up to the promise of her kooky ''Friends'' performance.
