Finally a star-sighting we wish we could have witnessed ourselves. Gambino bambino numero uno, John Gotti Jr., was dining at Santa Monica's Amici this week. John Travolta joined the former crime family capo to ask permission to play his father in an upcoming film and apparently, John Jr. bestowed his blessing on to Vinnie Barbarino. Yeah, that's it. We're not gonna joke about this one and don't try 'n break our freakin' balls about it, okay youse? While we continue looking out of our window in a paranoid manner, take a look at where else celebrities and true heavies have been dining in L.A. this week.
