Glamorous Holly Madison celebrated her 34th birthday as part of the Palms’ pre-New Year’s Eve Weekend festivities and also perhaps the upcoming announcement of her new headliner show on the Strip.
Holly isn’t commenting for now on my exclusive report that early in the New Year, she’ll announce that the former 40 Deuce venue at Mandalay Bay will be turned into a cabaret showroom for her own headline production.
But I can confirm details of the deal in partnership with the operators of the Minus 5 Ice Lounge attractions at Mandalay Bay and Monte Carlo will be revealed in January and that the show will launch in February or early March.
Meantime, photographer Denise Truscello of WireImage was at the newly renovated N9NE Steakhouse in the Palms to capture a photo gallery of Holly’s birthday dinner with husband Pasquale Rotella of Electric Daisy Carnival fame, her former “Peepshow” co-star Josh Strickland, her manager Jason Verona and more, plus, the post-dinner stop at Ghostbar and the party at Moon.
Other friends in attendance at the celebratory evening included Tom Recine, James Garrett, Alex Acuna, Tanya Popovich, Todd DuBail, Mike Fournier, Mike Snedegar and “Pin Up” at the Stratosphere starlet Claire Sinclair.
Happy Belated Birthday, Holly (her birthday is Dec. 23), and good luck with the new Mandalay Bay show from all your friends (and admirers) at Vegas DeLuxe. The Strip welcomes your return and movie-star glamour to light up 2014.
