I loved the original “Showgirls” for its utter Showgirls-ness delivered by screenwriter Joe Eszterhas and director Paul Verhoeven. The classy nail artistry of the heroine Nomi Malone; “Goddess” star Cristal Connors’ drawling “darlin’ ” and of course the slimy perfidy of casino hotshot Zack Carey with his utterly tacky dolphin fountain swimming pool which was the setting for one of the most ridiculous, and short, sex scenes ever.

But whatever happened to Penny, the naive stripper from Cheetah’s who took Nomi’s spot in valet/dancer Jimmy’s modern dance flop piece “Private Dancer”?
