The I’s have been dotted and the T’s have been crossed: Holly Madison is officially the next celebrity star in the new hit topless adult burlesque cabaret Peepshow, replacing General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco and confirming our initial report late Wednesday of rumors -- click HERE for that story.
“I’m really thrilled to be a part of Peepshow. It’s always been my dream to be a part of a classy burlesque,” the Playboy and The Girls Next Door blonde beauty told me. “I’m looking forward to working at ‘Planet Holly’ and with director Jerry Mitchell. I want to thank everyone for this opportunity.”
The contracts were signed late this afternoon, so the published and broadcast reports yesterday announcing Holly’s deal were a bit premature. Holly begins her stint at Planet Holly on June 22. And here’s titillating news to start your weekend: According to a few reports, Holly, unlike Kelly, will go completely topless on occasion!
Meantime, Holly returns to Dancing With the Stars this finals week as part of the celebrity cast of Season 8 with pro partner Dmitry Chaplin, and this is ahead of her full-time move to Las Vegas, which we reported today.
