Megan “The Hofmann Hots Hottie” Lucas is The Woman Behind Zaccanelli Lawsuit

Timmy has  an update on the story we reported yesterday: Phil Romano is suing Hofmann Hots CEO Frank Zaccanelli for misuse of funds. . Apparently, Zaccanelli was supporting Megan Lucas, a former hostess at Nick & Sam’s. The first Hofmann Hots, at 340 Singleton Blvd.,will open in ten minutes. Should be a bobby dazzler.

UPDATE: Timmy is just off the phone with Megan. She claims they used her to oust Zaccanelli. Stay tuned.


First, though, about that mugshot: Lucas says she got a ticket in Highland Park for throwing a cigarette butt out a window. When she didn’t pay that ticket, she was arrested.

Now the lawsuit. In short, Lucas says it’s all bunk, that Romano et al. were trying to use Lucas to squeeze Zaccanelli out of the business. She says that she met Zacanelli while working as a server at Nick & Sam’s. She says she went through three interviews before Zaccanelli hired her as the director of social media and marketing, disciplines she studied at the Art Institute. Lucas says her relationship with Zaccanelli has always been a professional one.

    But why is she in jail? Or, why was she arrested? Major gossip, but sounds like a snake pit.

  • Nancy Nichols

    She isn’t in jail and I do not know what she was arrested for on Jan 25…

    If you can’t afford to pay a ticket for tossing a cig out the window, you might find yourself in need of a little help with the rent. Unless you’re just the kind of person that forgets they got a ticket in the first place. Or a conscientious objector to littering tickets.

    As a mugshot model, though, she puts Lindsay Lohan to shame. Would love to know what she was thinking at the moment the camera snapped (“Really? For a cigarette?”). “Hofmann Hots Hottie” needs work, though. Pretty in Links? Too much Fun in a Bun? All Beef Scandal?

    Even better: “All Beef Scandal Heats Up!”

    I know this young lady from high school. She seems as if she has aged physically, but not so much academically. Shame.
