The rumor mill in Hollywood is in overdrive with Wicked Whispers & Racy Rumors that “Booty” pop diva Jennifer Lopez is about to sign a mini-residency contract for 72 shows in Axis at Planet Hollywood, home of Britney Spears’ residency show “Britney: Piece of Me.”
It’s the Duel of the Divas.
We reported two weeks ago that an announcement of new star signings at the Colosseum in Caesars Palace and Axis, both part of Caesars Entertainment, was imminent.
TMZ is reporting that their producers have seen J.Lo’s proposed contract, which calls for 24 weeks of shows in one to two years performed three times a week with a nightly pay of $350,000 per show.
Jenny from the Block was at Britney and Shania Twain’s shows this past weekend with her manager Benny Medina. Insiders describe it to me as “a field trip for her to see if she liked the feel of the showrooms and the Strip.”
No word yet as to when J.Lo’s shows might start and what the production would include, but her tour calendar is empty.
Her debut “Dance Again” world tour in 2012 with ex-husband Marc Anthony and Enrique Iglesias, who performed at Mandalay Bay with Pitbull one week ago, joining her for stops grossed more than $52.6 million and was seen by 745,000 fans.
She performed at Mandalay Bay on May 26 and Aug. 18 in 2012.

Catering to the young and modern crowd, Planet Hollywood is a one-stop shop for entertainment with its massive shopping mall, slew of restaurants, spacious casino and clubs.
The ambiance of the casino is retro-chic meets high-tech with black granite floors throughout and colorful LED lights throughout the space. The theme carries into the 100,000 square-foot casino with 250 flat screens topping off slot machines. The casino is also home to 87 tables, a sports book and a poker room.
There's also the Miracle Mile Shops, one Vegas' largest malls, with 140 stores including BCBG Max Azaria, bebe, Urban Outfitters and The Discovery Channel Store.
Following an afternoon of shopping, guests can satisfy their appetites at one of the gourmet restaurants in Planet Hollywood, like the non-traditional approach to steakhouses at Strip House or check out the exotic Far East motif at KOI restaurant and lounge. And if guests are still looking for more, they can spend the after hours at Privé, Triq or Krave nightclubs.
Perhaps one of the resorts biggest attractions came in March with the addition of "Peepshow." The naughty twist on the story of Little Bo Peep is modern-day spin on the run-of-the-mill Vegas topless review. The "Peepshow" stage has seen visiting celebs like Scary Spice Mel B, "Dancing with the Stars" Kelly Monaco and Playboy's Holly Madison.
