Lawyer TV Show Pilot Based in Las Vegas

Another Las Vegas-based TV pilot is in the works. Loosely based on the Las Vegas law firm Cristalli & Saggese, the series plans to feature Jim Belushi cast as a character based on Michael V. Cristalli and Jerry O’Connell as one based on Marc A. Saggese. Both are on board, Cristalli said. The characters’ names will not be the same as the lawyers.’ 

It’s the culmination of a four-year project that began with a relationship between Cristalli and Saggese and brothers Joe and Harry Gantz, the producers and developers of the HBO documentary series “Taxicab Confessions.” 

“We shot a docu-drama several years ago about the law office” says Cristalli, and it was sold to CBS as a drama. 

The TV pilot’s director, Davis Guggenheim, directed Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” and the writing team of Niels Mueller and Kevin Kennedy collaborated on “The Assassination of Richard Nixon,” which starred Sean Penn. 

Cristalli and Saggese represented Sandy Murphy in her October 2004 retrial in the Ted Binion murder case that ended in an acquittal of murder, but she was convicted of lesser charges of burglary and grand larceny.

Kendra Wilkinson Slithers on Stripper Pole, Bakes Her Buns this Weekend in Las Vegas

Kendra Wilkinson is going to be one busy celebrity sinner this weekend.  On Sun., March 28, the E! Television reality star of the Girls’ Next Door, will be the guest teacher in V Theater’s Stripper 101 pole dancing class. 

Yep, the svelte star (who’s also a new wife and mother) will join the Stripper 101 instructors for a one day show of her finely honed pole skills and show the lucky ladies in the 1 and 3 p.m. classes how to work the pole, be sexy and stay healthy using her own brand of professional exercise and dance pole- all included in the package price. 

For $249, ladies will get the royal treatment:  enjoy complimentary cocktails (to loosen up, of course), training, souvenir photo, T-shirts, nightclub passes, tickets to American Storm or comedic hypnotist Marc Savard, and – are you ready? – a Kendra Sport Pole of their very own to take home and enjoy for a lifetime of sexy fitness. 

Interested? Space limited.  Please call 702-318-6464. 

But if that’s way too much for you to stomach and you’d much rather just lounge around the pool with Wilkinson, that’s possible too.   On Sat., March 27, she’s going to hosting a huge pool party from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at MGM Grand’s Wet Republic in Las Vegas. 

We really hope that she slathers on the sunscreen thick so she can be in tip-top shape to slide down the pole the next day. 

Tickets for this epoch event are $20 for ladies; $50 for men. Please call 702-891-3086.
