It’s been a crazed, around-the-clock schedule for curvy Coco Austin since she landed in town at Thanksgiving for tonight’s debut starring as the headliner of the adult burlesque “Peepshow” at Planet Hollywood. The sizzling sex symbol is ready and poised to bust out of her bra and brandish the best booty in showbiz.

“A very hectic week,” one of her close friends speaking for Coco told me Sunday night. “The rehearsals were pretty intense, but we also were juggling so many things at once. We had photo sessions and shooting ‘Ice Loves Coco.’ Somehow, she still found time to take the bulldogs Spartacus and Maximus out for walks!”

The schedule doesn’t let up today as she makes her Strip headliner acting and dancing debut. “Hopefully, she can get a good night’s sleep because she has to still shoot the reality TV show and all the video for the ‘Peepshow’ opening screens. But she’s a very happy Bo Peep. She is so excited and looking forward to the first show. She’s unbelievably confident about it all.

“She’s getting great encouragement from the cast and crew. She’s gotten better and better each day and soaked it all up. Her mother and sister watched the dress rehearsal Sunday, and they’re very proud of her. Coco was extremely pleased with the response she got from everybody at the closed final rehearsal.”

“Absinthe” starlet Angel Porrino, who has been performing as Bo Peep since Holly Madison departed in recent weeks, said, “Coco is rocking my world.”

Hubby Ice-T is in New York filming “Law & Order,” so he’ll miss tonight’s debut. This is the first time they have been apart for an extended period since their New Year’s Eve marriage here in 2001.

“They’ve been talking on the phone every day. He is giving her tons of support and encouragement. He’ll be here Dec. 17 for the media night events,” her friend added.

The 5-foot-2, 135-pound blonde bombshell, author and Licious fashion designer with the deadly derriere stars as Bo Peep for a 12-week run through March. The glamour model and 2008 Playboy centerfold is a one-time tomboy but is no newcomer to dancing. She began with jazz, ballet and tap when she was just 6 years old while growing up in Albuquerque.

Coco has added a dance number in “Peepshow” in which she performs the splits. And, oh yes, that dynamic and dynamite figure of amazing proportions, which won her a “best body of the year” award in a 2010 magazine contest, goes on show in its full, gorgeous glory at 39DD-23-40.

“I’m trying to be the best Bo Peep ever,” Coco said. We’ll post our first-night report of Coco’s Strip debut and my chat with the green-eyed torrid temptress here at Vegas DeLuxe on Tuesday.
