Planet Hollywood likes their buxom blonde reality TV stars. That was evident yesterday when the Las Vegas hotel announced that wife of rapper Ice-T and co-star of the E! reality TV series “Ice Loves Coco,” Coco Austin will replace Holly Madison as Bo Peep in the burlesque show “Peepshow.”
Coco, whose first night as Bo Peep is Dec. 3 has said of her new sexy role, "When the opportunity to be a part of 'Peepshow' was presented, I was thrilled to be able to represent the sexy and confident women of today. I am looking forward to being able to interact with my fans in a more personal and intimate environment."
This isn’t the first time Coco has showed off her “assets” in front of a large audience. Just like Madison, Coco has ties to Hugh Hefner and the Playboy Mansion. The blonde bombshell is a former Playboy model, which has appeared on several talk shows and in guest roles on various television shows. She also claims to have appeared on more than 50 magazine covers.
Coco also has plenty of dance training from her youth, not to mention the proper look to continue Bo Peep’s topless role! Stay tuned for more details on Madison’s final performance as Bo Peep on Oct 21st and Coco’s transition from reality TV star to Strip hottie.
In other Las Vegas news, the iHeart Radios Music Festival at MGM Grand Garden Arena on Friday and Saturday night certainly was the concert of the year and talk of the town as hundreds of celebrities either performed at or showed up to the after-parties in celebration of the concert.
More than 12,300 people hit MGM Grand Garden Arena on Saturday night as Brad Paisley, Chester Bennington of Linkin Park, Pitbull, Taylor Swift and Steven Tyler and Joe Perry hit the stage. But it was during Mary J. Blige’s performance that the packed crowd got the surprise of the night. Midway through Blige’s set, the legendary Prince showed up on stage without any warning or introduction and played guitar on “Sweet Thing.” Blige then suggested they sing a duet of “Nothing Compares 2 U,” the Sinead O’Connor hit Prince wrote. Prince agreed and the duo performed a soulful rendition of the song for one of the most memorable performances at the two-night festival.
Following Saturday’s performances, the stars including deadmau5, Kat Von D, Enrique Iglesias, Calvin Harris, David Bryan of Bon Jovi and Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance gathered at XS Nightclub to celebrate the energetic and concert-filled weekend.
That’s all of the celebrity news I have for today. Check back tomorrow for more!
