Reality television’s Holly Madison, who now calls Vegas home, has settled on Sept. 10 for her California wedding to "baby daddy" Pasquale Rotella, the promoter of this weekend’s giant Electric Daisy Carnival here.
They are the proud and happy parents of three month old baby daughter Rainbow Aurora.
The former "Girls Next Door" star who was linked to Playboy king Hugh Hefner gave me the good news about the “white church ceremony" Sunday.
“Life is complete,” she exclaimed. The couple have been dating since the end of 2011. An earlier wedding date of Aug. 14 she let slip on the documentary TV show “Holly Has A Baby” had to be pushed back almost a month.
The 33-year-old starlet says she’s still working on a new reality TV series but plans on traveling with baby Rainbow and Pasquale to all his upcoming EDC concerts. She’ll attend every one of this coming weekend’s shows from dusk to dawn at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and have a backstage nursery for the baby!
MUSIC VIDEO: Between rehearsals for their appearance and telecast performing "Pom Poms" on Sunday night’s Miss USA pageant, the Jonas Brothers filmed their new music video all around the Planet Hollywood resort. Joe Jonas helmed the video for cameras set up all throughout the hotel –- and at the gaming tables. Many of the group’s Los Angeles friends and fans traveled in to appear in the video to be released within the month.
BILLIONAIRE HOST: With a net worth of $2 billion he’s one of the richest billionaires in Russia and Forbes ranks him No. 831 in the world. Aras Agalarov, 57, is one of the country’s biggest developers and already has three Vegas-styled entertainment shopping and entertainment complexes in Moscow. He has become Donald Trump’s partner to take the Miss Universe pageant to his Crocus Convention Center. His New Jersey- and New York-educated son Emin, 33, will sing at the Nov. 9 pageant, to be broadcast here on NBC-TV. Emin and his father signed the contracts with Donald here this past weekend and celebrated at the Act nightclub in the Palazzo. Emin, who is also a commercial director for Crocus International, saw his debut album “Still” sell more than 100,000 copies.
FATHERS DAY: Olympic champion and New York Knicks basketball star Carmelo Anthony celebrated Sunday at Exotics Racing with wife, LaLa Anthony and her dad. He drove the yellow Ferrari 458 Italia and went on a high-speed, drifting ride in a Corvette Z06. "That might just have been the most amazing, best experience of my life” he said afterwards.
Ian Ziering, former "90210" star and now host of the Chippendales burlesque revue, celebrated Father’s Day at the Ringling Bros. & Barnum and Bailey circus show “Built to Amaze” at the Thomas & Mack Center. Ian, his wife, Erin, and daughter Mia got to feed two of the seven elephants.
MORE HOT BODIES: It was a hot body extravaganza Sunday at Encore Beach Club in the Wynn. Poker pro and actress Tiffany Michelle celebrated her birthday with her Amazing Race 15 partner Maria Ho and the season’s champions Meghan Rickey and Cheyne Whitney. They relaxed in a poolside cabana during the second round of the Miss Beach Bunny Las Vegas model search. Three semifinalists were chosen to compete in the grand finale this September: Brittany McGown, first place; Claire Arceneaux, second place; Michelle Arenal, third place. If that wasn’t enough eye candy, more than 40 former and current pageant beauties in town for the Miss USA pageant partied at the desert oasis.
SOCCER STARS: Many of world football’s elite stars flew in this weekend to film the inaugural Ryder Cup styled Westwood Cup golf tournament at Shadow Creek. Attending the welcome dinner at Hakkasan were former AC Milan star Andriy Shevchenko, Manchester City's James Milner, West Bromwich Albion's James Morrison, Patrik Berger and Vladmir Smicer of the Czech Republic, Sunderland's Adam Johnson, Nicklas Bendnter from Juventu, Kevin Phillips from Crystal Palace F.C. and more. Afterwards they partied in the club’s Ling Ling Lounge dancing to DJ Jace One.
CONVENTION UPTICK: Wall Street casino experts noted a positive uptick Monday morning in year over year statistics for the weeks ending July 13 and 20. Already there’s a total of 10 conventions versus seven in 2012, and attendees are even stronger with 62,000 versus 48,000 last year! And this is the heat of summer! It's a good sign.
BACHELORETTE QUEEN: Miss America 2013 Mallory Hagan, who won her crown and title at Planet Hollywood in January, will be featured on tonight's ABC-TV episode of "The Bachelorette."
