Ordinarily, growing up in or near Hollywood leaves its mark on a person. Most folks end up with fantasies of upward mobility. But Patricia Farinelli has managed to avoid most of the glamour and pretension of Tinseltown: She leads a simple life and she likes it that way. Besides, to Patti, Glitter City is just the old neighborhood – human, funky and livable. She’s street smart, that’s what you pick up in a metropolis like Los Angeles; but Patti could easily pass for a small-town girl. Not that she wouldn’t like a taste of the showbiz world; it’s just that it’s not that important to her.
