Sacco Shockeroo! Golden-Haired Giantess Lacks All-Access Pass to New York Nightlife

transom2 1 Sacco Shockeroo! Golden Haired Giantess Lacks All Access Pass to New York NightlifeNightlife’s Amy Sacco, the blond, towering tsarina of Lot 61 and Bungalow 8, claims she often gets turned away from rival clubs. “But I just walk away,” Ms. Sacco told the Transom at the Monday, July 14, premiere of The Doorman, a “scripted documentary” about the powerful rulers of that oligarchy known as the meatpacking district, in which she appears along with actor and director Peter Bogdanovich, People’s Revolution flack Kelly Cutrone and photographer Patrick McMullan. “I would never threaten their job,” Ms. Sacco said of the velvet ropes’ guardians. “I feel for them!”

She described how someone seeking entry to one of her exclusive boîtes “told me this elaborate story of how they knew my mother, who lives in Chatham, N.J. I knew they were lying, but they were so creative about it that I had to let them in!”

Co-written by Wayne Price and Argentinian actor Lucas Akoskin and directed by Mr. Price, the film features the Plaza Hotel Rose Club’s Fabrizio Brienza, who arrived wearing a string of rosary beads over his tanned, hairy chest. “I tell them it’s not going to happen,” he said, describing doomed aspirants to his domain. “But then for hours they have to create confusion and commotion, and they want to fight me!”

What advice would Mr. Brienza give to an aspiring doorman?

“You have to look good,” he said. “If the doorman looks like shit, then I automatically think that everyone else in the club will look like shit. And why would I want to go there, eh?”

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
