“The Hills” Returns to MTV as Heidi Montag Reveals New Body

“The Hills” will be returning for one last season when it premieres Monday, April 27 on MTV. The final 12 episodes of the long-running series will deal with rumors about Kristin Cavallari, the brief return of Lauren Conrad and the ongoing drama that is Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt. The trailer for the final season hints at both marriage trouble and the controversy surrounding Montag’s series of plastic surgeries, which have severely altered her appearance. 

Montag, whose album Superficial has stalled despite early buzz, unveiled her new body – which has not stalled – in Las Vegas on April 10 when she donned a bikini to sit poolside at the Liquid Pool at Aria at CityCenter.

Lavish spending and, hopefully, getting a great return on the investment, is the whole idea behind the replacement of the porte cochere at Wynn’s Encore with Encore Beach Resort and Surrender nightclub in Las Vegas, including new outdoor seating for Switch restaurant as well. 

The changes, funded by Wynn Resorts Ltd., all kickoff starting on Memorial Day weekend.

Las Vegas Pool Groupies Wanted for YouTube Stardom & Bucks

While Las Vegans and tourists alike are warmly welcomed to celebrate (and brave!) the return of the scorching sun’s rays and sweltering heat, some enterprising people are also taking the opportunity to cash in on the many pool festivities occuring at the thirteen or so casino and resort pools in Las Vegas. 

A new web series on YouTube, “Vegas Summer Crew,”  is inviting everyone to the pool parties.  Poolside festivities will be delivered nationwide online, encouraging everyone not to miss out on one drop of sweat next season. 

The series also is opening doors for some lucky buxom and buff  pool denizens, offering them the chance to become one of the faces of the “Vegas Summer Crew.” The chosen few will act as the series’ hosts, showing up to a total of nine events, consisting of major casinos’ poolside concerts and parties, as well as some red carpet events. Hosts will be interviewing attendees and checking in on the party, all while being filmed and fed back to the web. 

Auditions will be held from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. April 13 at Cashman Theater (850 Las Vegas Blvd North). The show is seeking people 21 and up who consider themselves fun, outgoing and energetic. It also helps, of course, if you look great scantily clad — hopefuls are asked to show-up in their best bikini or board shorts. 

“What we’re looking for is people with fun, outgoing personalities that feel comfortable going out into a crowd and getting interaction. No on-camera experience [is necessary]; they just have to be fun,” says Tony Marin, a rep for the “Vegas Summer Crew.” 

There also will be an ongoing contest throughout the pool season allowing people all over the country to submit a video of themselves in a swimsuit explaining why they too would make a great face for the “Vegas Summer Crew.”  Eight contestants will be chosen, winning themselves a trip to Las Vegas and a potential guest host spot. 

There’s an added bonus to getting your face out on the World Wide Web: “There will be compensation for whoever we hire,” says Marin. 

Sounds like this summer job sure beats selling lemonade on the corner.

$100,000 “Battle of the Beauties” Contest Starts in Las Vegas

If the wind and rain stops, the temperature in Las Vegas will soar, which primarily means two major can’t-miss thangs: It’s time to hit the pool and it’s time for SpyOn Vegas’ Hot 100 Contest—which also takes place at a pool.

The annual hotties competition seeks out the most beautiful women Las Vegas has to offer and rewards them for their god- (or surgeon-) given good looks with cold, hard cash. It’s the third year for the Hot 100 and, like the chests of many of the competitors, it is bigger and better than ever.

The so-called “Battle of the Beauties” is set to give out a whopping $100,000 in prizes this year—despite Las Vegas’ choking economy – that’s double the amount that was doled out last year—to the top 20 finalists. First place is awarded $35,000, second gets $20,000 and third fetches $10,000, while finalists four through 20 collect between $6,000 and $1,000.

Registration is open on: www.SpyOnVegas.com The competition gets under way April 30 at Wet Republic. Twelve weeks of events, Friday afternoon pool parties and online voting will follow, culminating with the crowning of “hottest female in Las Vegas” on July 23.

Sinners: Worship & Swim in God’s New Garden in Las Vegas

God has a new garden in Sin City?   Yep.  Scantily clad – or wearing nothing at all – Las Vegas sun gods and goddesses have a a whole new worship retreat at Caesars Palace. 

Caesars Palace has just opened its newly refurbished pool area.   Coined “The Garden of the Gods,” the complex has been completely and extravagantly redesigned by Allard & Conversano into three levels of aquatic wonder featuring eight unique and lavish pools inspired by the Roman Gods that encircle a five-acre pool complex. 

The area includes a swim-up blackjack pool, a European style pool, a family friendly pool, and even a guests-only, butler-served pool area. 

Each pool is named for a god or goddess and has its own special bells and whistles. The Fortuna pool, for example, features an 18-foot waterfall and a swim-up blackjack table. The twin Bacchus pools have butler-staffed cabanas which are, alas, for invited VIPs only. For maximum sun exposure, get over to Apollo — it’s strategically positioned to get your tan on.  And, unlike many of the other adult-oriented pools, Garden of the Gods also caters families with its Temple pool designated for young swimmers. 

At one of the pools, chocolate will be available not just as a snack or dessert but in the form of a 30-foot chocolate waterfall (good for dunking strawberries — sold by the bucket) that cascades into a 3-acre pool filled with the stuff only Willy Wonka could dream of. 

The Sokolati pool (greek for “chocolate”) is new to the Las Vegas scene and is the first swimming pool comprised entirely of chocolate. Depending on the season, you may find Sokolati filled with dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or caramel.

There pools are nestled among 44 new luxury cabanas, each stocked with plush furniture, flat screen TVs and wireless Internet. 

Caesars Palace has also added a whirlpool retreat area and garden wedding venue to provide a total pool experience. 

The pool complex is open daily from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.. 

Check it out- you may just feel like you died and got a heavenly reprieve.

Tanning Bed Use as Deadly as Arsenic and Mustard Gas

A new medical study is out that ties tanning bed use to an increased risk of contracting cancer, listing it among the top cancer causes, rating them as deadly as arsenic and mustard gas. tanningbeds

With the climate in Las Vegas now turning seasonally colder, this has magnified the intrinsic business and economic challenges faced by Las Vegas’ indoor tanning industry practitioners. 

For years, scientists have described tanning beds and ultraviolet radiation as “probable carcinogens.” 

The new cumulative study is a result of analyzing about 20 tanning bed studies which concluded the dramatic risk of skin cancer occurs with continued use. The study released in July by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the cancer arm of the World Health Organization, said skin cancer risk is increased by 75 percent for those who use tanning beds before age 30. 

The new cancer classification means tanning beds and other sources of ultraviolet radiation are definite causes of cancer, alongside tobacco, the hepatitis B virus and chimney sweeping, among others. 

Most lights used in tanning beds give off mainly ultraviolet radiation, which causes skin and eye cancer, according to the International Agency for Cancer Research. 

The research was published online in the medical journal Lancet Oncology by experts at the International Agency for Research on Cancer in Lyon. 

Nationwide, the $2.7 billion tanning salon industry is expected to experience a 5.1 percent decline this year as the negative impacts of a down economy and the study play out, according to market research firm IBIS World Inc.
