Hard on the high heels of last night’s official gala opening of Peepshow at Planet Hollywood with co-star Shoshana Bean, platinum blonde beauty Holly Madison has a helter-skelter schedule over the next 48 hours before returning for two Sunday shows.
Here’s our gallery of the photos from the fun and festivities at the casino resort. Enjoy! Holly had her signature platinum blonde tresses touched up before the gala by color king to the stars Michael Boychuck at his Amp Salon in the Palms.
Tonight, Holly will host yet another celebration party at Prive in Planet Hollywood and then early tomorrow flies to Los Angeles for the final fittings of her bridesmaid’s dress. Then she attends her The Girls Next Door co-star Kendra Wilkinson’s wedding to Hank Baskett of the Philadelphia Eagles taking place at The Playboy Mansion.
Originally, there’d been discussion that magazine mogul and former boyfriend Hugh Hefner would walk her down the aisle to give her away. Now it will be Kendra’s brother who does those honors.
The ceremony and wedding reception will run too late for Holly to return to Las Vegas tomorrow night, so she will fly back here early Sunday morning and add an extra show that day to make up for the missed Saturday performance. So two shows on Sunday, folks!
I’m reliably told that ticket sales are “going through the roof” for Holly’s topless performance and that discussions have already begun about a contract extension on her initial 90 days prompted by the strong ticket sales.
Last night at the cocktail party that followed the show, Holly told me: “I couldn’t be happier because this is all going so well. We are one wonderful family working together. Everybody gets along beautifully. We are all supportive of each other. We are going to have a good run together. I feel as if all the things I’ve ever wanted to happen have come together for me with Peepshow. I love living and working in Las Vegas. I feel right at home here for the first time in my life.”
