Editor’s Note: While Robin Leach takes his traditional summer vacation under the Tuscan sun in Italy, many of our Strip personalities have stepped forward in his absence to pen their own words of wisdom. We continue today with Angela Stabile, producer of “X Burlesque” at Flamingo Las Vegas.

First, there was “X Burlesque” at Flamingo Las Vegas, then “Raack N Roll” at the D Hotel. Now Stabile Productions Inc. is very proud to present its newest sexy topless revue, “X Rocks,” opening at the Rio in the King’s Room in September. Yes, you heard it here first.

In its 11th year, “X Burlesque” is doing very well. We recently updated the show in April, as we do every year. This keeps it new and “X”-citing and the audience coming back for more.

They also want to see their classic favorites like “Sweet & Innocent” (the bathtub number), the “Mile High” number (where a lucky audience member gets to join the mile-high club) and “The Hot Box” (a super sexy legs striptease number with an added surprise) that have been in the show since it opened in 2002.

Our new hip-hop number is a must-see. It’s a montage of Beyonce’s “Run the World (Girls),” Rihanna’s “Birthday Cake” and Keri Hilson’s “The Way You Love Me.” We also added “X Burlesque” hieroglyphics to our re-choreographed belly-dancing number.

A stunning new number featuring a tribute to the iconic showgirl is performed to Shirley Bassey’s “Diamonds Are Forever” and Rihanna’s “Diamonds.” The “X” Girl is dripped in diamonds from head to toe on a spinning, mirrored pedestal. We updated the showroom by adding sparkle with a hot pink sequined curtain.

What are the “X” Girls up to? Jennifer Mateo has made it to the semifinals of Maxim’s “Hometown Hotties” contest and also is up for Wet Republic’s Las Vegas’ Hot 100. “X” Girl Meeka Onstead and company manager Tiffany Stabile starred in a reality TV pilot for “The Only Way Is Essex” producers from Britain.

“X” Girl Shakeera Onstead (Meeka’s sister), choreographer/manager Anthony Cardella, my husband Matt and I also appeared in the episode. “X” Girl Whitney Giron turned 21 in June. We’re very happy because she can now do club appearances with the rest of the cast.

“Raack N Roll” is in its fourth month at the D Hotel and doing very well. The comedy star of the show, Robert Nash, was recently featured on the History Channel’s “Counting Cars.” He is known for his dead-on impression of Robert De Niro. Danny and the crew fixed up Nash’s 1981 Cadillac El Dorado, the same model of car featured in “Casino,” starring De Niro.

Finally, check out my son Frank Sidoris, guitarist in Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy & the Conspirators, at House of Blues in Mandalay Bay on Thursday.

Check out our other guest columns today from “X” Girl Meeka, “Raack N Roll” host Robert Nash and chef Akira Back, who opens Kumi at Mandalay Bay on Tuesday, then Tuesday from “The Rat Pack” stars Sandy Hackett and Lisa Dawn Miller and producer Seth Yudof.
