OBSESSED WITH SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER

If you’re wondering who these two people are, the guy is a wealthy Italian, Gianluca Mech, and the woman is Karen Lynn Gorney – she was John Travolta’s leading lady in Saturday Night Fever. (She famously said no to Tony Manero.) It happens to be the 40th anniversary of the movie, and Mech is a superfan, to put it mildly. He spent $200,000 to duplicate the movie’s 2001 Odyssey Disco at exactly the same location in Bay Ridge, used in the movie. It’s now a Chinese restaurant, but Mech had a special lighted dancefloor built and redecorated the place for his party. He flew in 50 friends from Italy and invited anyone in disco vintage attire to join the party. Of course he invited the cast – Travolta didn’t show up, but Karen did, and Monti Rock III was DJ.

    Oh my gosh! Haven’t seen Gorney in years. A bit shocking how much we all age over time. She did a great job on that movie.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
