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.
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.
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.
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.
Wet Republic at MGM Grand continued it’s celebrity pool party fun this weekend with Kendra Wilkinson from The Girls Next Door. She was with Holly Madison and some other girl, but does anyone matter besides Kendra? Even through Kendra is wearing a bikini, which is cool, something looks different.
It’s pretty interesting how Las Vegas, as a market, continues to find “celebrities” for their clubs from a crew of about 3 to 5 shows. Regardless, everyone seems to like Kendra. Click the DVD picture below if you like Kendra, Holly and/or Bridget.

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.
Pre-order Holly’s World on DVD from Amazon
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.
Claire Sinclair seems to be everywhere I look now that Holly’s World is over and she announced that she’ll be Playboy’s Playmate of the Year. Sinclair is certainly not ugly and she’ll follow in line with other ex Playboy playmates Dita Von Teese and Carmen Electra to drop her clothes at MGM Grand’s Crazy Horse Paris. She’ll be taking the stage at MGM Grand between April 20 and April 27.
Saying Claire Sinclair is fun, so I hope she sticks around so I can keep saying her name.
Buy tickets to Crazy Horse Paris.
Holly Madison wrote a book! Sure this could be the moment in time that marks when books “jump the shark“, but I’d rather look at this moment much more lightly and just enjoy it for what it is. It’s “Holly Madison’s Las Vegas” and should be taken for what it is. It’s about Vegas after all! Take a look at the specs.
Holly Madison takes readers on a tour through the glitz and glitter of Las Vegas from the unique perspective of a Strip headliner.
Madison has unprecedented access to high-roller areas and mansion-in-the-sky suites that are closed to all but a privileged few. In a chapter illustrated by dozens of photos, she leads a virtual tour through the Hugh Hefner Sky Villa at the Palms, the Verona Suite (former home of Elvis Presley) at the Las Vegas Hilton and many more.
I’ll wait for the DVD. If you need you some more Holly Madison, click the picture below.
She also takes a look at the wacky attractions on the road from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, the peripatetic history of this former desert outpost, the evolution of the Vegas showgirl, the restaurants and clubs that pack the city and all of the activities and attractions that make the city so much fun. Holly provides behind-the-scenes looks at Peepshow and her TV reality show, Holly’s World, and provides tips on looking fabulous in the desert, from what to pack to how to keep makeup from melting away in the extreme summer heat.
Holly’s World debuted last night. I was stoked because I love bad TV with good looking girls. While watching the first episode, I found myself getting slightly upset about how staged and fake the reality show looked. Then I remembered that’s, in part, what I like about it.
So there’s made up drama about Holly’s weight and a villain (Jayde Nicole) was brought in add more fake boobs and faux drama to the show. Big deal. I’ll watch. How’s 20 more brainless minutes on a TV show set in Las Vegas a week going to kill me?
On a side note, whenever I write about a movie or TV show I usually look for a link to buy it on Amazon, but I was surprised to find that season one of Holly’s World isn’t available on DVD…yet. Since every season of The Girls Next Door and Kendra are all available, it can’t be too long before you can buy Holly’s World.
