Fan gets really chummy with Connie Francis

    PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Sixties superstar Connie Francis, who topped the charts with "Who's Sorry Now," is suing the family of a Florida fan for $300,000 the woman signed over to the singer days before committing suicide.

    Relatives of Patricia Nilsen, who shot herself in November after putting nearly all her assets in Francis' name, accuse the singer of using "undue influence" to get the cash.

    Francis, 68, calls that "absurd."

    Hey, Frankie Avalon, I stole it straight from the lede of the story.

    I think it's Frankie who's mistaken. Connie Francis did "Who's Sorry Now" as the story references; Brenda Lee did a song called "I'm Sorry".

    So Hondo, you might want to say you're, uh, sorry to Ace...

    And you were correct.

    Brenda Lee sang "I'm Sorry." Connie Francis sang "Who's Sorry Now?"
