Hugh Hefner is coming to Las Vegas to sneak a peek at his ex, Bo Peep.
The Playboy mogul is said to have snagged a few prime seats for a performance of Madison’s topless revue at Planet Hollywood, “Peepshow,” on Saturday.
The 83-year-old magnate’s three current girlfriends, 19-year-old twin sisters Karissa and Kristina Shannon, and 22-year-old Crystal Harris are expected to join him for the topless revue.
If all goes to plan, the visit will be captured on film for an upcoming episode of the “The Girls Next Door.”
Madison stared in the first five seasons of the E! reality show, which provides an inside look at life in and around the Playboy Mansion. However, she forfeited her starring role when she bowed out of her relationship with Hefner last September.
Madison’s former co-stars, Bridget Marquardt and Kendra Wilkinson, have also left life at the mansion behind since then. Wilkinson is pregnant, recently married NFL player Hank Baskett, and currently has an E! reality show of her own. Meanwhile, Marquardt is busy, too, beach-hopping around the globe as host of “Bridget’s Sexiest Beaches” on the Travel Channel.
A resilient playboy, Hefner wasted no time on the rebound and quickly filled the bunny void with Harris and the Shannon sisters, whose bunny credentials were recently upgraded to “Playmate,” after they were named Miss July and Miss August.
Though Madison never received the distinction of “Playmate” during her time at the mansion (and multiple appearances on the pages of the pin-up magazine) the 29-year-old beauty is supportive of Hefner and his new lady friends.
Hef’s well-endowed arm candy past and present crossed paths earlier this year as he celebrated his 83rd birthday at the Palms.
Yet instead of a catfight, the six blondes were all smiles as they lounged by the pool and chatted amongst themselves.
Hefner’s last visit to Las Vegas was in May, when he came to town to host a bunny-filled VIP banquet and name Miss March 2008, Ida Ljungqvist, Playmate of the Year.

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.
