In this episode, Joy (Jane Leeves) dates a guy who she thinks is her teen crush Rick Springfield (played by Rick Springfield) and Victoria (Wendie Malick) wants to fire the cleaning-averse housekeeper (Rhea Perlman). Meanwhile, Melanie’s (Valerie Bertinelli) date with a pretentious professor (Craig Bierko) makes her feel insecure and Elka (Betty White) is fed up with her writing partner Mamie (Georgia Engel).
Rocker Rick Springfield has revealed he only owns half of thesmash hit he wrote and recorded – but that’s been enough to buy him “several houses”.
The singer/songwriter enjoyed worldwide success with ’80s anthem Jessie’s Girl but he doesn’t own the copyright of the song outright.
He says, “I only own half the song, although I’m the writer of Jessie’s Girl. I only own half the publishing. That was the deal that was made way back when I was kind of clueless about business.”
But he isn’t complaining – Springfield tells AccessHollywood, “It’s bought me several houses.”
