In January 1999 she admitted that she was bisexual and had been sexually involved with women since she was 21. At the time her Bill character was having a lesbian fling while working undercover in a prison. "My mother told the whole town I was a lesbian and she was proud of me. My girlfriend was accepted as part of the family." The relationship lasted two years. A four-year relationship with Roger May (b. 1966) ended around the same time that Joy admitted her bisexuality.
