An "ooh" of delight swept the crowd, suddenly punctuated by a loud shattering of expensive china and crystal! Two waiters, their eyes riveted to Gene's captivating curves, had run headlong into each other! Gene and her date moved to their table as flashbulbs popped and journalists raced to the phones to break the news of Gene's "gold sensation"!
