Commentary by Amy Pauszek
“Where’s Amy?” … I am still on cloud nine after having an opportunity to attend a special Q & A with Academy Award winning actress Sophia Loren at The Palladium. It was a lovely evening where the audience listened to her life-long stories, saw film clips of her favorite movies and asked questions. It was refreshing to hear how Loren loved and believed in her family. She told the guests stories about her career, which included leading men Clark Gable, Franks Sinatra and Cary Grant. She looked beautiful and shined on stage. I was honored to be invited by the Palladium afterwards for her exclusive meet and greet back stage.
Excited fans and guests gathered on the Palladium stage and were served Champaign and delicious Italian desserts while waiting in line to have a photo taken with Ms. Loren. My time was brief with her but I was honored when she whispered in my ear that I reminded her of her dear sister in Italy. What an honor and what a evening I will never forget.
