“Absinthe” at Caesars Palace producer and star The Gazillionaire took over Hyde Bellagio to celebrate a rather remarkable achievement. Talk about notches on his belt and bedpost!
The cast of the erotic and exotic circus, including Melody Sweets and Penny Pibbets, celebrated his outrageous statement. “Let’s celebrate! Last night, I slept with my one millionth girl right here in Vegas!” he screamed, jumping on top of a couch.
