It was written somewhere that a waitress asked him: "What's it gonna be today, Donzi baby?".
I don't know if it's true. Brownie would probably know.

I thought it was his nickname when he was a kid.
I call my son Drew, 'Drewzi' sometimes.

In the book that I read, his secretary came out to look at the new boat and said; "Donzi, it's beautiful baby!" or something like that....

Donzi is derived from the latin word Donzia which roughly translated means "I wish I had a Cigarette"
