Donna Dixon and Dan Ackroyd on the Fran Drescher show

Strange interview. They talk about meeting each other on Doctor Detroit, which Fran was also in.

Dan Akroyd is a sleaze bag. Constantly hits on young women and doesn’t take no for an answer. Or used to anyway. He was also caught having an affair with a married woman and wanted to leave Donna for her.

Donna in better days. Settling for Dan never made sense.

R2 Donna was drop dead stunning in her youth. Even with extra weight, she still was beautiful.

R4 - Very short lived, in 2010.

Dixon has a weird speaking affectation.

I heard that Dan Ackroyd is a HOMO.

Dingbats, the clip is 14 years old. They could be dead and buried but DL cryptdwellers just yak yak on like this is current news.

R12 - Clip is from 2010. Dan wishes he looked like that now.

Donna looks great in the clip at OP - but that affected accent is something else. She grew up in the DMV.

In the beginning of their marriage were they not swingers? Why did she ever settle for Dan Ackroyd, he's not attractive at all!!

There were stories a million years ago about their "swinging ways" in LA.

Dixon was so pretty but such a bad actress. She was practically reading her lines off a cue card on “Bosom Buddies.”

Dixon was in a back door pilot episode of “Who’s the Boss” with … Fran Drescher. First time I ever saw Drescher and thought she was hilarious. Dixon wasn’t that great.

Season Two, Episode 26: “Charmed Lives.”

How did you miss Fran earlier in Saturday Night Fever?

Looking it up I see Donna and Fran's spinoff lasted four episodes.

R34,I saw “Saturday Night Fever” (the PG version released into theaters after “Grease”) when I was 7. And I didn’t like it. The only women I remember were Karen Lynn Gorney and the great Donna Pescow.

Funnily enough, I saw mention of Dan being autistic on a blog I was reading, r39. I’d never heard that before. It made me think of the autism troll here on DL.

Holy shit, Donna Dixon IS Moira Rose! Catherine O'Hara knows Danny, of course, so this makes total sense. But I hadn't heard Donna speak in decades (and I don't think she always put on that accent), so I never made the connection until seeing that clip.

The comments on the clip are full of people saying "Gee, Donna, why not mention that you cheated on Paul Stanley when you and Dan got together?" Looks like a couple of years ago, chickens came home to roost.

He covered for Belushi's drug use too, so he has that to live with.

Wow, that is an affected way of speaking. She sounds insufferable. But Dan the douchebag was attracted to the blonde hair and the funbags. Comedians really have basic tastes in women.

He was with Carrie Fisher for a couple years (around the time of Blues Brothers). She ain't "basic".

She's the furthest thing from basic.
