What a Wicked Whisper & Racy Rumor we have this first workday after Memorial Day Weekend!
As the new, 5,000-seat theater at Monte Carlo nears the final stage of construction and interior decoration, buzz has begun as to which stars will headline there.
One rumor that began circulating over the weekend was that first discussions have started about Justin Timberlake agreeing to a residency there.
I’m told that the story leaked from a solid source close to the involved parties. I can’t confirm it, yet, but it’s a great name to bandy about as gossip as the short list of stars to target is developed.
There also has been talk of Vince Neil now that he’s solo and away from Motley Crue appearing with his new band on a resident basis.
We’ll keep you posted, but it would be delicious if Justin, one-time and long-ago boyfriend of Britney Spears, was on the Strip at the same time as the pop princess, whose hit “Britney: Piece of Me” is at nearby Axis at Planet Hollywood.

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.
