Fig & Olive — The Hollywood Hotpot on Melrose Place was the perfect venue for Doris Bergman’s Style Lounge, honoring the 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards.

Others partaking of the eatery’s exquisite cuisine, and bagging such items as fashion forward luggage, stunning jewelry, chic chapeau & the finest beauty, skin & hair care, included Naomi Grossman (American Horror Story), Steve Bauer (Ray Donovan) & Kelsey Scott (Walking Dead) to name a few.  Best news is that Wednesday’s Child, which benefits children in need of adoptive families, received dozens of gifts from the attendees, who believe in the Spirit of Giving.

Giorgio’s, the hot disco at the super-stylish Standard Hotel in Hollywood, was the perfect venue for Mark Fleischman to launch his new book — Inside Studio 54, A Story of Sex, Drugs and Rock N’ Roll. In the early eighties, Fleischman reopened the world’s most infamous nightclub in Manhattan, where the party never ended. The rich & famous partied hard, and those who managed to get by the velvet rope, could mix with regulars like Andy Warhol, Liza Minnelli, Cher, Gloria Vanderbilt & famed fashion designer, Halston.

Unfortunately, Cocaine & Quaaludes played as significant part in the party, and represented the era of sexual freedom.  Fleischman is upfront about his own addiction, & shares his tale of recovery — as well as those including Tony Curtis, Tanya Tucker, & Grace Jones — who all fought back & won.

Several regular included Nikki Haskell (who happens to be BFF with Ivana Trump) Model, Actress Cathy St George, actor Steven Bauer, & of course, the best  thing that ever happened to Mark … his lovely mate, Mimi Leonard Fleischman were at the soiree. Mimi owns four Bar Method Exercise Studios, which help her maintain that gorgeous bod. To relive those days of Disco & debauchery — I suggest you purchase this tale of life & love in the fast lane.
