It wasn’t Carmen Electra or Jenny McCarthy. Nope it was another set fake boobs to take over Holly Madison’s role in PEEPSHOW at Planet Hollywood. And the winner is………Coco.
Coco is married to rapper/actor/OG Ice-T and already has a TV show on E!, “Ice Loves Coco“, that will be used to promote inclusion on PEEPSHOW. This is fairly typical of Caesars Entertainment over the couple years to bring in partners to do the heavy lifting on promotion (see countless celebrity chefs & Nobu) rather then to depend on the quality of their brand to sell the product.
“Ice Loves Coco” must have a significant audience because the show is about to begin its 3rd season.
Truthfully, most people don’t really care about talent for PEEPSHOW. This show is just supposed to be a good time and Coco’s addition should do the trick.
While I may sound cynical about Coco’s addition to the cast, I actually think it’s a good move. The TV promotion alone will be worth whatever they’re paying her. Coco and Ice-T have made a few appearances over the summer at the Vegas clubs (see photo above) and pools so there is a lot of cross promotion potential here.
Coco actually brings more to PEEPSHOW then Holly Madison did when she joined the cast if you compare their resume’s.
According to the Las Vegas Sun PEEPSHOW is negotiating with both Jenny McCarthy AND Carmen Electra to replace Holly Madison.
Vegas DeLuxe learned last week that New York producers at BASE Entertainment had mulled invitations to Playboy beauty Jenny McCarthy and petite bombshell Carmen Electra — another Playboy nude centerfold cover girl — to possibly take over for 32-year-old Holly.
Now discussions on possible contract terms are moving forward, and there’s even the rumored possibility that Jenny and Carmen would alternate in limited-engagement runs.
It’s no surprise that PEEPSHOW would approach two former Playboy centerfolds after the success Holly Madison brought to the show. It should also not come as a surprise that they would go after two women that are nearing 40 years old. After all, the typical Caesars
customer is a skews older then Cosmopolitan
.While a younger, more exciting name might have been a better replacement Carmen Electra and Jenny McCarthy are safe bets to hold the fort for a while. In the meantime they can either search for a full time replacement or the show is shuttered for good.
BTW: Trying to find a picture of someone with more than a bikini on after they’ve been naked in a magazine isn’t as easy as you’d think.
