Celebs Rockin' Around The City Vol.4


So here we go..................

On Friday, Dec.12, at the Flamingo Hotel, headliner and owner of America's most successful doll line, Marie Osmond, hosted a doll signing event for this one day only. The event, perfectly timed for the gift-giving season, was open to the public and wow, did her fans love getting the chance to meet with the lovely and talented show-lady in person. Anyone who purchased a doll on this day was given the rare opportunity to have the, "Dancing with the Stars" celeb, personally hand-sign each doll. Marie displayed her newly released, Vegas-themed "Flamingo Belle" dolls along with some of her classic favorites which were all available for purchase. Alright, I have to admit, I was so taken with the dolls myself, that I bought two adorable dolls just for little ole me! Marie was warm, sweet, gracious, and full of happiness to share with all her admirers. You go girl!


Saturday, December 13th, Jamie Foxx celebrated his birthday and the release of his album, "Intuition", with friends and fans at his party at TAO Las Vegas . The multi-talented, Academy Award-winning actor and Grammy-nominated songster, Jamie Foxx released this highly-anticipated album, which carries the single "Just Like Me" featuring T.I. As always, Jamie was cordial and humble as ever. FYI, I ran out and bought his album.


On Saturday, December 13th, inThe Playboy club inside the Fantasy Tower at the Palms Casino Resort, the stunningly gorgeous and sexy, CARMEN ELECTRA came out to Celebrate Playboy's 55thAnniversary. She hosted the evening as the celebrity, guest, bunny and dealer while sporting all the fab bunny attire from ears to the tail, which was designed by Roberto Cavailli. Ok, I tried to buy the bunny suit for myself, but was rejected. Total bummer...Do you suppose Carmen might have been a bit jealous and told them to reject my wish? NOT! Carmen Electra, Playboy cover model, actress, and icon, after a day of dealer training and certification with the Nevada Gaming Commission, dealt her Blackjack cards like no dealer has ever done before. Heck, she made me even want to play! Ok, so I lost the money that I hoped to buy the bunny outfit with, and I am ashamed...Electra, appears on the cover of Playboy Magazine's January issue and she is featured in a new, eight-page nude pictorial. I bought the magazine too, but for a friend??? Well I did. A good friend. Carmen's fiancé, Rob Patterson, was also at the event. Carmen, I must say, YOU ARE HOT!

Dasha Astafieva, Playboy Magazine's 55th Anniversary Playmate of the Month posed for photographers to celebrate her achievement. The striking, Ukrainian beauty Dasha Astafieva's layout can be found in the magazines January 2009 issue, which is available in stores now. Dasha is quite stunning and does seem to have an Angelina Jolie-esque look goin on. Angelina, you have nothing to worry about. For those of you out there who are curious, this was not Dasha's first time posing for Playboy, for she has graced the pages of the international magazine in the past. Furthermore, if you watch, "The Girls Next Door", you would know that is why Hugh Heffner's old love Holly Madison picked her to come and try out for the anniversary edition. Holly may now be rethinking this pick however. You see, Dasha is the one being blamed for upsetting the order in the mansion and causing a complete overhaul of the Girls Next Door. But ya know what... Holly has nothing to worry about because she seems to be quite happy now with Criss Angel who is extremely adorable and magical...I wonder if Holly can get me that bunny outfit I am longing to have... I will give Heffner credit though, for he sure knows how to pick um!



If you happen to be in the Palms Hotel or nearby, do stop into the Little Buddha Restaurant. It has the best ambiance with food that is out of this world. From the Sushi Rolls to their specialties, to the sweet selections, you can't go wrong. Say hi to the wonderful General Manager Shelly Galloway, Carlos Mercado, and Justin Dupree for me. For reservations call 702-942-7778.

Tuesday, Dec. 16Th, at theBlush Nightclub inside the Wynn Hotel was the Royal Plush Event. This was an amazing celebration to show off the clothing lines new collection, Royal Plush. Some of the stars walking the carpet were:

Nolan Gerard Funk- Star of "Spectacular" (Compared to the High School Musical), he appeared in "Aliens in America " and "Smallville". Also, Nolan is soon to be seen in: "Triple Dog" (2009) "Malevolence: Bereavement" (2009) and The Wilderness Family". I found him to be adorable as can be...

Lauren Storm- Upcoming film, "I love you Beth Cooper," with Hayden Panettiere-July 2009. She was also seen in: "Whore", "The Jerk" "Theory" and "Flight 29 Down".

Deborah Gibson:Singer songwriter- Most recently seen on "Entertainment Tonight. Jeremy Jackson: Appeared on "Baywatch" and "Child star confidential". Jer came with Heidi Freeman on his arm...Lucky lady.


On Saturday December 20TH, the stars of the, "The Girls Next Door", gathered for an autograph signing of their new book at the Playboy Store in the Forum Shops, Caesars Palace. All three of the beautiful blondes, Holly Madison, Bridget Marquardt, and Kendra Wilkinson were there with pen-in-hand and beaming with smiles over the launch of their book, "The Girls Next Door". The girls were very kind and receptive to their fans that waited patiently for their turn to get their copy of the book signed. Actually, most of the fans got a photo opportunity with the stars as well. Ok, yes, yes, yes... I bought the book too... Kendra was glowing as she showed off her new diamond ring. She is now engaged to Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Hank Baskett. Good luck with that Kendra... I wonder if Kendra could get me the bunny suit? I mean shes got her man, she doesn't need it anymore.


Also, on DEC. 20TH, famous baseball legend PETE ROSE, signed collectables at the FIELD OF DREAMS store in the Forum Shops.I cannot even begin to tell you what a nice guy he is. When I state that, it has nothing to do with the fact that Mr. Rose signed and gave me a free baseball.... Ok maybe it did.... But he was still darn nice!!!!! Thanks Pete, you rock!!!


DEC. 20TH, PAMELA ANDERSON came out to the CELEBRITY CAR AUCTION at the South Point Hotel in all her blonde glory. She was there to auction her own trailer and got 26,000 for it. Ok, it was NOT me who bought the thing! I took a pass on this one. Although, she is divinely gorgeous, she does make some rather strange facial expressions. Too bad she didn't auction her bunny suit.


The"Ikki" Twins, the new hotties of MTV'S, "A Double Shot of Love" were the Hosts of the Evening at JET Nightclub at the Mirage Hotel on Friday, Jan. 2nd. They loved the limelight and adoring new fans as they posed on the carpet for quite a while. They were really good sports actually. Patrons from both genders were undoubtedly vying for their own shot at love with the world's most provocative twins. Rikki and Vikki Mongeon (aka the "Ikki Twins"), are super-sexy bi-sexual identical twin sisters and their career has taken off with a bang and who knows where the girls might land. Most likely, however, it will be together.


Adam Gregory Celebrated his 21st Birthday in high style and partied at The Bank Nightclub in the Bellagio Hotel on Friday, Jan. 2nd. Gregory, (who is quite the hunk with dreamy eyes that don't end) may perhaps be best known for his role in the revived "90210" TV series as Ty Collins. He has a starring role in the upcoming feature film "Hannah Montana the Movie", as well as a supporting character role in the upcoming, "17 Again", starring Matthew Perry and Zac Efron. Adam was with his co-star Jessica Lowndes.
