Recently, "Peepshow" at Planet Hollywood and reality TV star Holly Madison’s close friends have been presenting her with baby gifts. This is a befitting act, given Madison’s current state of impending mommyhood.
But many of these gifts have been obviously and intentionally thematic: tutus and little skirts and the like, many of them in a pinkish hue.
The girly gifts have been chosen because Madison and her beau, Electric Daisy Carnival founder and Insomniac Events CEO Pasquale Rotella, now know their child will be a girl.
The choosing-a-name process can now be better targeted to anything that would be appropriate for a female. Madison, who announced Aug. 29 that she was pregnant, is entertaining names that are atypical, yet somewhat classy. Maybe last names that would work as first names. Something dignified and distinctive and fun.
Madison’s final performance in her starring role as Bo Peep in “Peepshow” is Sunday. Coco Austin, star of “Ice Loves Coco” and wife of rap icon Ice-T, steps into the role on Dec. 3. In the interim, Angel Porrino, the bubble-bound performer in “Absinthe” at Caesars Palace, will return to the role as Austin rehearses for the part she will portray through March.
