A wild Wicked Whisper & riveting Racy Rumor this thrilling Thursday afternoon:

Entertainment insiders confirm that the Versailles Showroom at Riviera will reopen during the first half of 2014 and that two of the first headliners are expected to be the return of CeeLo Green to the Strip and comedian and actor Jim Belushi.

It’s solid-as-a-rock information and news that I’ve hinted at in previous columns, but this is now definite. You’ll recall that CeeLo performed a shorter-than-expected run of his show “Loberace” at Planet Hollywood this year.

We’ll report more information about the CeeLo-Jim Belushi-Riviera deal as soon as we learn additional details.

Meantime, Hollywood gossip guru Perez Hilton is reporting that late-night talk-show host and comedienne Chelsea Handler (“Chelsea Lately”) is in negotiations for an all-female residency show here. No details other than that a triple comedic act would include cameos from her best friends, including actress Jennifer Aniston.

Perez says that Chelsea wants it to be her updated version of The Rat Pack. For now, I can only say that a very brief check of my Strip contacts indicates no deal in place or anyone who has heard Word 1 about it.
