I totally agree with your point that Joanna should be appropriately compensated. I'm just sad that an agreement couldn't be reached so that Joanna could be included in the DVD.

I can understand that they had a small budget to work with. However, I think they should've come up with a compensation plan whereby Joanna could receive a percentage of the profits from the DVD sales. If they had to raise the sale price of the DVD by a couple of dollars (or even by $5.00) to include Joanna in the DVD, I still would've bought the DVD. I think most loyal, die-hard fans of the show would also spend the extra money to buy the DVD.

I never saw the VH-1 Where Are They Now? episode. But I found a photo of Joanna from that episode on the VH-1 website. Here's the link to Joanna's photo on the VH-1 website:

The VH-1 website also has a couple of video clips from that episode, featuring Eartha Kitt and Lou Ferrigno. Unfortunately, they don't have any video clips of Joanna.

I was 8 years old when Isis was on TV in 1975. Joanna was my first celebrity crush. Joanna did a fantastic job playing Isis. I loved the show, and I'm glad to be able to see it again on DVD.
