The Scintas! It’s a laugh out loud affair at the Hilton.

Media night for their latest show was star studded, fun, silliness and a cast of incredible characters. The newly engaged Clint Holmes and Kelly Clinton looking fabulous. Clint gushing over Kelly’s one-woman show. And the news is Clint’s opening at the Suncoast sometime in December.

The standout of the evening was Zowie Bowie, the new heartthrob of the Red Rock Resort. Very blond and his partner very ala Jane Mansfield. Also in the crowd Rich Little, Frank Marino, Nathan Burton, Blair Farrington, Earl Turner. The whole thing was put together by Ira David Sternberg and the PR Department at Hilton. It was an affair to remember.

The show itself is visually new and fast paced. If you’ve seen the Scintas before you need to see them again. It’s a whole new presentation. The Shimmer Cabaret is also home to Menopause, The Musical with my friend Paige O’Hara. The show continues to rave audiences and has done incredible business. In fact, it’s been booked for another year. Barry Manilow is still big news at the Hilton and has just returned with another hit album.

I promised my readers I wouldn’t talk about Britney Spears, but someone’s got to step in. She loves the media almost as much as I do. In my day we didn’t have paparazzi, but I was devastated when I lost custody of my two children, Rick and Dick. Yes, your honor, no your honor.

As I wrote in last week’s column, Pamela Anderson is engaged to Rick Salomon. Now, what can we say about Pamela that hasn’t been said already? First of all, the infamous Salomon, was a co-star of the Paris Hilton sex tape from a couple of years ago. Well he also was married. So Pamela, Tommy Lee is still the best, darling.

O.J. Simpson had to give up his Rolex watch to the Goldmans. Sad. Too bad it wasn’t a genuine Rolex. If you haven’t seen Jeff Beacher’s Madhouse at the Hard Rock, make a point of seeing the show with his stand up performer Leonid the Magnificent and a full cast. Lindsay Lohan making up with her father but is still in rehab. Mending each other.

Dancing with the Stars, Jane Seymour, had to make a quick exit and fly to England after the loss of her mother. But ever the professional, upon her return Jane was looking absolutely glamorous. She will continue her dancing efforts in honor of her mom, who was a big fan of Dancing With the Stars. Our hometown Legend... no, not me, the other Legend, Wayne Newton, got a reprieve last week. Let’s remember to cast our vote for our favorite son.

Over at the Luxor, Carrot Top is returning after his vacation. Criss Angel at rehearsal is almost ready and David Copperfield back in town at the MGM Grand.

For those of you who read my column, what a time to get into the wedding business. Mud-slinging and bad business practices, chapels going out of business. Business is down 75 percent. I’m still ready to perform weddings, so if you’re on the prowl, now’s the time to call.

What’s the status of Breck Wall’s Bottoms Up? It has been a Las Vegas constant. "Crave at the Empire Ballroom." The experience of Mr. Wall was not all that he anticipated. We all know the Fashionistas is re-opening and Dick Feeney’s Viva Las Vegas is opening at the Plaza Hotel. But again, I have to give it to David Saxe and the V Theatre. He really has a corner on this market. It’s not only the brokers..., the casinos have a a handle on the tickets, the shows and the audiences.

What’s the status of Steve Wyrick and his show at Miracle Mile? Recently heard that Steve was getting his own star on the Walk of Fame here in Las Vegas but was rejected.

Remember when Celine Dion first introduced the world to A New Day at Caesars Coliseum? Remember all the skeptics about selling out four thousand seats every night? And what about those prices! Remember when I said, "Celine’s bringing a new era to Las Vegas." How many years ago was that? Ah, memories. We will miss Celine and all that she brought to us. December is fast approaching and we’ll have to say farewell, only 20 more performances.

This is a fabulous time of year in Las Vegas. As the heat drops, the visitors increase and we welcome you all. If you’re planning ahead for your Vegas visit don’t forget another Las Vegas mainstay, Danny Gans at the Mirage. Gans’ show continues to be a favorite and is a sellout every performance.

Caramel Bar and Lounge at Bellagio will be featuring the works of local artists this month. A touch of culture is always welcome. Talent comes in all forms, especially here in our wonderful Las Vegas. The Cast (the Caring for Artists Show Business and Technicians) is hosting a fundraiser for veteran enteratiner Dave Swan on Oct 20 at 2 pm at the Imperial Palace. Dave has serious medical problems and is in need of assistance.
