Sarah Palin took a seat on Jay Leno's couch Tuesday night to chat and giggle and all that other nonsense guests do on late-night talk shows. Once the two were done catching up, Leno announced that Palin was going to make her "comedy debut" (apparently SNL doesn't count). The former Governor of Alaska took to the stage and performed a pretty decent stand-up routine. She joked about the things you'd expect: Alaska (it's so cold there it's "5 degrees below Congress' approval rating"), not being the vice president ("I would not know what to do with all that free time), and of course, Tina Fey ("I have been really busy, I've picked up a gig in Las Vegas, at the Legends show, playing Tina Fey.")
I won't lie to you. I'm a believer. And that title covers aliens, ghosts, and yes, psychics. I'm not saying that when people claim they had an "encounter" or "vision" I'm not skeptical, but I do believe that there is the total possibility all this paranormal stuff is real. Why not, you know? Prove me wrong. I dare you. It's like when I claim that my last boyfriend was in the Gorillaz. There is no evidence to the contrary, so just let me do my thing.
This Thursday and Friday at 7 pm "The Modern day Nostradamus" Gary Spivey is coming to Vegas for a very limited engagement at The Lounge in the Palms. Gary is known equally for his psychic abilities as he is for his outrageous white hair helmet.
After a much too long hiatus, legendary burlesque performer and fashion icon Dita Von Teese is returning to Vegas. MGM Grand is excited to welcome back Dita after her sold-out engagement three years ago in April 2007.
Dita was the Crazy Horse Paris' first guest star and during her return at the end of the month, she'll perform routines designed specifically for the Crazy Horse stage. These include the debut of "Lazy" with the Crazy Horse dancers; "Le Bain Noir," her famous bathtub number, and "Teese'ing," her take on the now iconic Crazy Horse routine "Teasing."
After a nearly two-month hiatus, Holly Madison's Peepshow is back at Planet Hollywood. The show has been revamped with new dance routines, trimmed and cut segments, as well as new cast members, including Wayne Brady's former backup girl Cheaza as the Peep Diva.
Eva Longoria Parker was honored with a distinguished award for her outstanding entrepreneurial success at CityCenter on February 20th.
"This is a big deal. It's a heady accomplishment. It was time," Eva said at the after party.
With her parents Ella and Enrique on hand, Eva received the Distinguished Gold Award recognizing her "outstanding entrepreneurial success" at the 35th installation by the Latin Chamber of Commerce. Eva's acknowledgement comes from her Vegas steakhouse Beso and nightclub Eve, along with her dedication to expanding opportunities for women and minority-owned businesses.
I recall someone asking me who I would hook up with from the cast of Jersey Shore. I hesitantly answered Mike "The Situation," but quickly replaced my slimy answer with Pauly D and his nympho piercing.
But this is now, and that was last week.
One could only imagine my surprise when photos of The Situation and supermodel Bar Refaeli surfaced (Pauly D and cast must have been somewhere in the background). The two were being photographed by Terry Richardson for Interview Magazine.
Only one of two things could possibly be responsible for this travesty:
- After being invited to Fashion Week, the cast - or maybe just The Situation - used their prying boardwalk eyes to corner an overly drunk editor (who's never even heard of MTV), only to convince them that they were Whitney Port famous, and desperately in search of more publicity. And, we all know how short long that road is.
- Simple. Bar Refaeli has the hots for the cast. Leonardo DiCaprio not included.
Our raucous glitter gulch is about to get a little more glamorous. Bare Pool Lounge, located in the Mirage, is introducing a brand new, weekly LGBT dance party. Starting just a month from now, March 20, Bare Pool will go through a seductive metamorphosis to become Heaven, the outdoor nightclub more fit for sinners than saints.
"Heaven has a new address, and it's Bare, Saturday nights," says Eduardo Cordova, creator of the other popular dance series, The Closet Sundays at Revolution, as well as Heaven.
When it comes to Spike Jonze, how else can you describe the man but other than original? His resume touches on all aspects of creativity with directing music videos, (Beastie Boys - Sabotage and Bjork) unbelievable feature films like Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, and creating the MTV show Jackass (and staring in it at times).
Recently Jonze completed a short film with Kanye West titled We Were Once a Fairytale. This was Jonze's second time working with Kanye after he co-directed the video Flashing Lights.
