Las Vegas will totally live up to its reputation of partying to excess this weekend when two opposite worlds nearly collide. Actress Lindsay Lohan arrives to celebrate her 23rd birthday at a Saturday afternoon MGM pool party, and tonight shock jock Howard Stern’s sidekicks will be straddled with silicone at Rick’s Cabaret.
The wild, wanton and wasted shenanigans kick off with Howard Stern regular Ronnie the Limo Driver, aka Ricky Man, hosting at Rick’s 30,000-square-feet palace of pleasures with a few hundred of his friends and fans! The hi-jinx start at 10 p.m., and Ronnie vows to keep it going all night. More than 300 of the busty blondes and brunettes have promised to smother him with cuddly, close-up comforts.
“I love this club,” Ronnie says. “It’s like a castle full of hot, nearly naked girls. Rick’s is the greatest club in Vegas.” Most of Howard’s sidekicks are in Las Vegas for comedian Artie Lange’s show tomorrow at The Rogue Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel. Before Artie’s stage shtick about battling weight and drugs, Ronnie will assist Artie for Howard TV’s search for the next Miss Howard TV in a unique bikini contest around the famous Hard Rock pool.
Artie, who has his book Too Fat to Fish on The New York Times bestseller list, will be at Rick’s Cabaret along with other show characters. Three former Miss Howard TV honorees also will attend: Arbor Marie from Rick’s Cabaret Las Vegas, Gracie from Tootsie’s Cabaret Miami and Becky from Rick’s Cabaret New York.
“We all love Rick’s Cabaret clubs, wherever they are in the country,” Ronnie says. “We have heard from numerous fans of the show that they are coming to Vegas from all over and will be at the party. The club has amazing hot girls, and tonight is going to be off the hook!” he added.
Ronnie Mund was originally hired by Howard as his chauffeur 20 years ago. Despite lacking in height and muscle, Ronnie parlayed the position into a security guard and monitor of the show’s wacky guests. His abrasive personality and undying love for strippers transformed the man behind Howard’s wheels into a show regular!
LiLo turns 23
Amid this insanity, Lindsay Lohan hosts a poolside affair celebrating her 23rd birthday and the launch of her new Sevin Nyne Tanning Mist. Actress, singer and now entrepreneur Lindsay will dance under the sun and splash in the water at Wet Republic in MGM after making her 2:30 p.m. red carpet appearance.
Nobody knows if LiLo will be accompanied by her off-and-on-and-off-again lover DJ Samantha Ronson, but their explosive relationship has been blamed for Lindsay’s recent erratic behavior, including an incident when police were called to her home.
You can’t help but track the antics of Miss Lohan when she’s in Las Vegas because anything could happen. Only thing we know for now is that while at the partygoers’ playground, she will spray her mist on a battalion of bronzed beauties. With that start to the party, it’s got to be a stop-the-presses kind of afternoon with new wild headlines!
