Joanne is an old friend of Rachel's from Long Island who visits Rachel in Central Perk with Kiki and and Leslie in The One With George Stephanopoulos. They all confirm that the biggest gossip is still Rachel dumping Barry at the alter. This depresses Rachel, coming the same day she got her first paycheck but from which FISA had taken a large deduction.

She is played by Marianne Hagan.

Note - she should not be confused with Joanna, Rachel's boss at Bloomingdale's who appears later in the series.
