I Thought Summer Was Over In Vegas

I thought summer ended a few weeks ago. That pool parties were over. We wouldn’t see non-famous celebrities in bikinis. Well, I was wrong. Azure Pool at Palazzo was still open this weekend. But, now they’re closed. Their closing party was hosted by Christina Milian. I’m not sure how famous she is if I don’t even know who she is after reading her wiki. Whatever, she’s a girl in a bikini. Check Vegas News for more info and pictures of Christina Milian.  We think bikini clad celebrities are done for the year now that Azure Pool is closed.

Summer Never Ends In Las Vegas

In case you thought pool parties stopped in Las Vegas when the official end of summer (AKA Labor Day) passed, then you’re sadly wrong. The summer never ends in Las Vegas and Encore Beach Club brought out the “stars” this week with Stacy Keibler, Warren Moon and Chuck Liddell. These may be the most famous people I’ve seen at a pool party since I started paying attention this summer. This is a perfect group of semi-famous people for the meatheads that ECB is looking to attract. Stacy Keibler was even wearing a fedora, which is the hat of choice.

Either way, I love the pool party and learning who’s famous. I hope they never end, even when it gets “cold” in January. Check Vegas News for more pictures.

Jersey Shore Parties Poolside In Vegas Part Two

This weekend grandmother of all pool parties, Rehab, had their dose of Jersey Shore celebrity. While Sammi Sweetheart was partying and judging a bikini contest at the Planet Hollywood Pleasure Pool, Snooki was hanging out with Tiesto at the Hard Rock. I guess this is part of Tiesto’s residency at the Hard Rock that’s been going on for the past few months.

As I mentioned earlier this week, I find it interesting that Sammi and Pauly D had more views on Vegas News than Snooki. Maybe people are tiring from Snooki. I’m not. For more pictures of Snooki and Tiesto head to VegasNews.com.

Jersey Shore Parties Poolside In Vegas Part One

I had no idea about this, but Planet Hollywood has gotten into the pool party game. This week they was the first time I noticed they had something going on. They hosted a bikini contest with Sammi Sweeheart from Jersey Shore as their main celebrity judge. The Gazillionaire from Absinthe was also a guest judge, because why not cross promote Caesars Entertainment properties when marketing (that’s not meant to be cynical).

On an interesting Jersey Shore note, Sammi and Pauly D had more views on Vegas News than Snooki. I guess both guys and girls would rather see pictures of them than Snooki. For more pictures of Sammi, the Gazillionaire and the winner head to VegasNews.com.

Flamingo Finally Gets To Laura Croft

Flamingo’s Go Pool took a break from featuring the Holly’s World cast last week, but has gone back to the well once again. This past weekend Laura Croft made her Flamingo Go Pool Party appearance. Whew…we were worried she wouldn’t make the cut.  Word on the street is that she might be the nicest of the Holly’s World cast, but I haven’t met her yet and will wait for the time where she and I can talk music.

In the meantime we’ll have to enjoy her in silence and her in a bikini, unlike Holly Madison.  If you want more Laura Croft, you can see the rest of her pics from the day at Contact Music.

Who Is Amber Rose?

Pool parties and nightlife in Vegas are awesome. In fact, celebrity in Vegas is awesome. The people called celebrities in Las Vegas are legends in their own minds, as well as the promoters. Yes, it makes me chuckle. I’ve always randomly popped a good looking girl from a Las Vegas appearance on here because who doesn’t like a good looking girl? The more I look at Vegas news the more I see less and less famous celebrities and it makes me smile.

After two weeks of Holly’s World guests (Holly, Angel) at the Go Pool at Flamingo I was thinking we might see Laura Croft but that wasn’t the case. Anyway, I couldn’t figure out who was less famous at the Vegas pools this week and it was a battle. The was a woman from Real Housewives and Amber Rose, who is “famous” because she used to date Kanye West. She also has creepy eyes. The eyes have it an Amber Rose at Tao Beach is the winner of Vegas Non-Famous Non-Celebrity of the week – or something like that. I think Amber Rose is a model, but all I could find on her appearance is that she used to date Kanye.

Holly Madison Doesn’t Wear A Swimsuit To The Pool?

It’s summer time in Las Vegas and that means pool season.  I find pool season in Vegas to be when the biggest non-famous celebrities come out to party.  However, the past two weeks Flamingo has had the stars from Holly’s World hosting a party at their Go Pool. Last week was Angel Porrino, who decided to wear a bikini to fulfill her host duties.  This week it was Holly Madison hosting, but she went without a swimsuit of any kind.  Perhaps a bikini isn’t a prerequisite to host a pool party.  I’ll have to keep an eye on that.  In the meantime I have to wonder if Laura Croft will host next week as she’s the only regular woman from Holly’s World left to host a pool party.

“Absinthe” Star Angel Porrino Ain’t Ugly

I stayed at Flamingo for the first time last weekend and it was awesome.  The casino was much bigger than I thought and there were plenty of food and drink options.  I’ll get a review up shortly, but you can check some pictures on my flickr.

The weekend started with a short visit to Caesars Palace for an “Absinthe” tweetup (aka twitter hang).  Most of the cast showed up and put on a short performance.  I haven’t seen the show yet but reviews have been almost all really positive.  The show has one person that’s considered a “star” and that’s Angel Porrino.  The appeared at the tweetup and the next day she evidently was at Flamingo hosting a party at the Go Pool.

I was feeling a little hungover and took a walk outside in the afternoon and could not believe there was a line to get into the pool.  I’m not sure if it was because Angel was there or if that’s a Saturday afternoon hotspot.  All I know is that the walk didn’t get rid of my hangover.

Having seen Angel Porrino in person at least 3 times I have to say she’s very pretty.  I haven’t seen her perform in Peepshow or in Absinthe, so I’m not sure she has any talent.  I’m not sure that really matters.

Miss USA? Miss America? Alyssa Campanella Has Red Hair

I follow the Vegas media because every now and again they’ll have something useful to say.  Unfortunately, there was nothing relevant to my life this weekend besides random girls in bikinis.  Who am I not to look at a picture of a pretty girl?  I understand that it’s the medias job to cover what’s happening in the city but sometimes they do such a good job that things get lost in the ether with their over-zealous tweeting/covering some events.

One of the things that got lost in the shuffle was the overbearing coverage of the Miss Whatever pageant.  Thanks to the Pulse of Vegas blog I now know that the pageant was Miss USA and Miss California won.

Other things I learned is that Miss USA has a name: Alyssa Campanella.  She has red hair.  After I learned these things I stopped and just looked at pictures.  In fact, the photo above is from the Pulse of Vegas blog.  Check the blog if you need or want more information.  They usually do a good job of passing on useful information.
