When I reviewed their new charming show at the Flamingo, I nominated Donny & Marie for president -- or at least for an honorary office here in Vegas.
"Think about it," I said in the Las Vegas Sun on September 29. "America’s First Brother and Sister are running on a pro-lively, antidepressant, universally entertaining platform. They’re pretty much scandal-free. We’ve all seen them grow up on television. They work the stage and screen like lifelong politicians, and no one alive — not even Bill Clinton — can grin, wave, point, wink and make eye contact like they can.
"The toothsome twosome surely smile even while sleeping."
Today, over at Robin Leach's brand-new celeb site Vegas Deluxe, Marie Osmond lets slip that their show is doing so well at the Flamingo that, with option renewals, the brother-sister duo may extend their six-month run and just settle in for a full four-year term.
