At the end of May blonde beauty and former “The Girls Next Door” starlet, Holly Madison announced she would be hanging up her stilettos and saying goodbye to Peepshow
at Planet Hollywood
after three years of teasing the audience with her topless adventures. Madison announced that she’d continue her role as Bo Peep through the end of December, but when news broke in August that the reality TV star was pregnant with her first child; we knew it was only a matter of time before she hung up her heels earlier.
That news came today when Madison revealed that her run as Strip headliner would come to a close Oct. 21. It’s obviously understandable that Madison has decided to say goodbye a little earlier than planned and while we’re sad to see her go we’re very excited for her future. And now that she officially has an end date it leaves us wondering who will replace the bombshell. I recently reported rumors were swirling that former Playboy playmates and actresses Jenny McCarthy and Carmen Electra would replace Madison and rotate performances but now it appears those really were just rumors.
BASE Entertainment co-CEO Scott Zeiger dismissed both McCarthy and Electra as possible leads stating Electra “is not being considered” and that McCarthy’s schedule would not allow her to be a part of the show, at least not in October.
He did say that Peepshow will be “announcing our casting change quite soon” and that “this will all happen very fast. We’re having auditions and meetings, even today.” That was yesterday so we’ll just have to wait and see and hopefully we’ll hear soon.
