Jerry Seinfeld to Guest Co-host Thursday’s ‘Live! with Regis and Kelly’

You don’t see much of  frequent Las Vegas entertainer Jerry Seinfeld on his own new NBC show, “The Marriage Ref,” which he lets someone else host.

But the 55-year-old comedian and former red-hot sitcom star will be on view for a full-hour this Thursday on “Live! with Regis and Kelly.” 

The syndicated weekday talk show says Seinfeld is making his first appearance as a guest co-host, alongside Kelly Ripa.

 Scheduled guests include Donald Trump, also a business owner and lover of Las Vegas.

Katherine Heigl’s Wardrobe Malfunction in Las Vegas Saved by Billy Bush

Yet another celebrity fell into the trap of a heartbreaking wardrobe malfunction, right on the red carpet.  Following the infamous footsteps of the likes of Amy Winehouse and a host of others, this time it was the turn of “The Ugly Truth” star Katherine Heigl, who recently reported she will be leaving Grey’s Anatomy.

Heigl is a lot on the news lately, what with the image makeover she recently underwent, sporting her all new long dark tresses. Few days back, though, she hogged all the limelight for all the wrong reasons. However, what could have been a really awkward and embarrassing situation was turned into no more than a fashion goof up blip, thanks to her smartness and that of her friend, Billy Bush. 

The incident occurred during the ShoWest Award ceremony in Las Vegas. Katherine Heigl had been vetted as the Female Star of the Year. As she went up to the stage to receive the award and give her acceptance speech, the strap of her beautiful red dress, the one on her left shoulder, broke, almost baring her left breast, but held in place just in time by the actress. 

However, one cannot deny that the “27 Dresses” star did manage the embarrassing situation with star-like dignity and aplomb. Not letting the strap of her dress fall from her shoulders even once, and displaying not an iota of embarrassment or awkwardness, she smartly went with her speech, holding on to the broken strap of her dress, and soon, the host of the award ceremony, Billy Bush, came to her rescue. 

While Katherine Heigl finished her speech, Billy Bush valiantly raced to her aid, holding on to her strap as he stood behind her, away from the view of the prying paparazzi cameras.

“Crocodarium” Planned for Las Vegas

Yesterday, Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman, speaking at the Las Vegas Perspective annual business event at the Four Seasons, vowed he will lure Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin’s family to Las Vegas, building what Goodman called a “crocodarium.” 

Goodman said the Irwin family is currently in active talks with Las Vegas to re-fashion the Cashman Center and Cashman Field Complex, home to many trade shows and the Las Vegas 51s minor league baseball team, turning it into a huge, full-fledged zoo emphasizing Australian animals. 

Goodman added that the Cashman Center could relocate to newer convention facilities, such as the new 30,000-square-foot MEET venue, which opened last week in downtown Las Vegas at Fourth Street and Bridger Avenue. {Previously reported by Las Vegas Backstage Access.}  

Las Vegas, Goodman added, would also relocate the 51s minor league baseball facility, which sorely needs an upgrade. 

Ex-mob lawyer Goodman, apparently loving all things not just scaly, but furry with four legs as well, is also currently working with the Las Vegas Zoo officials, helping them to bring a new baboon exhibit, among others, that will soon open and much other needed facelifts to the otherwise droopy facility, thanks, in part, to ongoing aid from the San Diego Zoo.
