Dennis visits the San Fernando Valley apartment of producer Lotti Pharriss Knowles, co-producer of the upcoming documentary Goddess: The Fall and Rise of Showgirls. The film is all about the making, the flopping and the re-appreciating of the 1995 movie Showgirls. She talks about her longtime obsession with the film, how the film brought her together with her husband, their Showgirls themed wedding in Vegas, her favorite scenes and characters and the thrill of dressing up as "Revenge Nomi" for Halloween.Dennis shares his memories of interviewing Elizabeth Berkley for Detour magazine on the eve of the film's release. Other topics include: the film's controversial rape scene, her desire to be Tony Moss, her lowest point professionally, Kickstarter stress, semi-stalking Jason Bateman, how she learned the facts of life and the movie she saw when she was way too young to see it.
