All hail this true late-night-cable icon. Nicole Gian was the original "Madame Veronica" during the 1996 season of Showtime's Beverly Hills Bordello series before Gabriella Hall and Monique Parent eventually stepped into the role. It was more than anyone expected from the dark beauty, who made her debut in the Paul Newman/Robby Benson drama Harry and Son (1984). Nicole waited over a decade to return in the fitting role of "Dream Girl" in the film Wish Me Luck (1995)--and even then she was hiding under the name "Joli Piccolini." She then took her own name while taking off her clothes in films such as Tainted Love (1995), Striking Resemblance (1997), and Intimate Deception (1996). The young gal even took a break from getting us restless with a legit 1997 stint on the daytime soap The Young and the Restless.
