One less Peep in Las Vegas’ Peepshow

Planet Hollywood’s’ topless review “Peepshow” plans to really lay bare someone- Aubrey O’Day, the co-lead with Holly Madison.  Reportedly, her contract will not be renewed when the current run ends in December. 

Some say this action further waters down an already struggling show, replacing O’Day with local Las Vegas talent from Actors Equity in January, when the show takes a brief break before resuming shows. 

Madison will continue to be the show’s marquee draw.  

Show producers also have high hopes for an E! series, tentatively titled “Planet Hollywood,” as previously reported by Las Vegas Backstage Access.

‘Peepshow’ in Las Vegas not for Camera Peeking

Scandalous photographs recently snapped at a risqué Las Vegas show have raised questions about technology versus security. 

The photos were of performer Aubrey O’Day in topless revue “Peepshow” at Planet Hollywood. AubreyODay

Between cameras and cell phones, pictures can be easily snapped and even full length movies can be recorded — causing rising concerns now to producers and performers. 

The pictures taken were not suitable for children and were something the performer did not want to see surfacing on the Internet. 

“I decided to call out tonight because of some nude photos that were illegally obtained last night at the show,” O’Day said.   

O’Day cancelled an appearance earlier this week after the nude pictures circulated the Web. She later posted a video on YouTube addressing the candid photos. 

“It made me feel bad. It made me insecure about my body,” O’Day said. 

Security officials said they are not sure how the photos were captured. “We don’t allow any cameras in the theater,” said vice president of BASE Entertainment Marks Chowning. 

But even with all the security detail and bag checks, many devices still do sneak inside. 

Chowning works for the company that manages “Peepshow” and said it’s a problem that’s getting tougher to handle.  “It’s somewhat of a losing battle. As you know, the devices are getting smaller and better equipped with more technology,” Chowning said. 

At almost every Las Vegas show, nude or not, recording is forbidden.  Knowing it’s almost impossible to stop everyone, “Peepshow” uses trained eyes and even night vision goggles to weed out clandestine photographers. 

“We will be more aggressive about watching the audience. We will have the night vision goggles in use, and people who are found in violation of the policy will be ejected from the theater,” Chowning said.  “Really trying to protect what the women want protected, which is not having naked pictures of them strewn about the Internet,” Chowning said. 

O’Day has since returned to “Peepshow” after sitting out one night. The show opened earlier this year.

Aubrey O’ Day, late of “Danity Kane”, Playboy and Hairspray is now in talks to make her Las Vegas debut in the sexy song and dance extravaganza Peepshow at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, playing the role of Peep Diva. AubreyODay

The axed “Danity Kane” singer is being primed to take over the role of Peep Diva and if it all goes according to plan she will most likely start performing in Peepshow this Fall. 

Former Spice Girl Mel B ended her four-month run as the Peep Diva in Las Vegas’ Peepshow on June 21, the same day her counterpart Kelly Monaco, 33, finished her four-month run.  Holly Madison, 30, replaced Monaco in the role of “Bo Pee”. Broadway and R&B songbird Shoshana Bean is currently headlining as Peep Diva having replaced Brown. 

O’Day fell in love with the stage at age four, performing as Molly in Annie. Numerous musical productions in theatre followed, including: Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz; Carmen in Fame; Sandy in Grease; Liesl in The Sound of Music; Val in A Chorus Line; and Tzeitel in Fiddler on the Roof. Aubrey traveled the world serving international charities, and recently founded an AIDS educational charity, F.A.N. and a clothing line, heartonmysleeveshop.com. She entered an MTV reality show contest, “Making the Band 3,” succeeding in the formation of the platinum selling group, Danity Kane; the first female group in Billboard history to have both their debut and sophomore albums enter the main charts at number-one. She made her Broadway debut in Hairspray in the role of Amber Von Tussle. 

The sexy Peepshow production has also recently launched its new website, www.LasVegasPeepshow.com. You’ll find updated information there, as well as exclusive photos and video.
