Burlesque Queen Dita Von Teese’s New Las Vegas Tease: Going Topless!

Burlesque Queen Dita Von Teese has always teased about taking it off, but not really doing it- and that’s proved, for many, the charm of her act.  But tonight at her Las Vegas premeire opening she has a brand new trick up her bare sleeve, taking her act up a notch or two: going topless!

The petite porcelain powerhouse, fashion icon, author and entrepreneur, who once dated Marilyn Manson – and once even danced for dollars at the topless gentlemen’s club Crazy Horse Club here in Sin City – is reportedly really excited about her premiere tonight in Crazy Horse Paris at the MGM Grand. 

Providing the audience her first totally topless unveiling, Von Teese will  perform three sexy, saucy and sassy new numbers on the cabaret stage there for a limited run through April 7. 

Dita was the first guest star in the history of the famous French cabaret, and she will feature new performance numbers that she developed especially for her sold-out performances in the French capital last year. 

She will debut “Lazy,” a routine that features her and the magnificent Crazy Horse dancers. Her “Le Bain Noir” will be a new take on her famous bathtub show that she first performed here in 2007. Dita also promises a new “Teese’ing’ version of the iconic Crazy Horse number “Teasing.”

Showtime is 8 p.m.

Las Vegas Nightclubs Gone Too Wild?

Even in wild, anything goes Las Vegas, apparently, there are limits on what can and can’t be done in nightclubs.

In July, gaming regulators slapped the Planet Hollywood casino with a $500,000 fine for its Prive nightclub’s bad behavior, including “topless and lewd activity” and dumping club-goers in the casino “in various states of consciousness.”

The same month, the Rio closed its Sapphire topless pool, managed by a local gentleman’s club, after authorities arrested 10 people on suspicion of prostitution and drug crimes. Over Labor Day weekend, eight more arrests on similar charges were made at the Hard Rock Hotel’s pool club party, Rehab.

It’s all part of a crackdown by Las Vegas authorities on what they see as clubs gone wild.

“The quarrel is not, ‘You guys are offering entertainment that’s going to offend Middle America.’ We all want to keep Middle America coming to us to have fun. But we have rules,” said Randall Sayre of the Nevada Gaming Control Board. During the heyday of the “What happens here, stays here” tourism campaign, the must-have accessory for any Las Vegas Strip casino was a pulsating nightclub that lured Hollywood starlets and drunken tourists willing to pay for a few hours of shimmer.

That has sometimes proved to be an ill-fated mix. Though the clubs are reliable moneymakers and publicity machines, some have vexed officials with their fraternity-style antics — including stripping contests, fistfights, and alleged drug use and sexual assaults.

In the last decade, smoky lounges on the Strip gave way to three-story mega-clubs and booze-drenched pool parties. Out on the cutting edge of trendy are clubs such as the bronze-walled XS, the centerpiece of casino magnate Steve Wynn’s resort Encore.

Most of the clubs, which pull in tens of millions of dollars from high-volume sales of alcohol and special seating, successfully keep thousands of tourists under control. But the venues, jostling for the same young crowd, have a penchant for envelope-pushing — and the casinos, Sayre said, have mostly kept their hands off the cash machines.

In the last two years, Clark County has warned clubs about a wet-boxer-shorts contest and women shedding shirts at events named “Lose the Tan Lines” and “Boobs or Bust.” Some clubs launched stripping contests; others tried to sneak around no-nudity ordinances by slathering women in body paint.

Many nightlife problems are far graver, however, which could prove problematic for casinos in the long run. Gaming regulators can hold them responsible for most anything that unfolds on their properties.

In 2006, the state Gaming Control Board told casinos it was concerned about reports of violent, excessively drunk and underage club-goers. In the last year, authorities have noticed an uptick in prostitution and narcotics crimes at Strip hot spots, said Officer Bill Cassell of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

But it was “Prive-gate” that truly rattled the town’s after-dark scene and it appears no end is in sight for the enforcement and creation of new clubbing rules to govern Las Vegas partygoers.

Carmen Electra Goes Topless in Las Vegas

When Carmen Electra bared all on the “Crazy Horse Paris” stage in Las Vegas last week, it wasn’t because she was told she had to, and it wasn’t because she had been asked to, either. 

Electra tossed her pasties to the side and went completely topless because she wanted to. 

“It felt so good,” Electra said. “No one was expecting it. It was a completely last-minute decision,” she explained, noting the full reveal was not part of the model-actress’ original plan. CarmenElectra

“I started off with a bra – a big bra – and a larger-sized panty,” Electra said, “(But) once I got here and had a chance to try on some of the costumes and get into some of the numbers, I decided to go with pasties, and then just yesterday right before the show … I was just backstage and they put the pasties on and I thought, no, let’s go without it, and I took them off and decided to just completely go for it.” 

“I thought I would’ve been a little bit more nervous about showing so much,” the 37-year-old former Playmate said, “(But) it was very easy to decide (to do) … I felt really comfortable.” 

Electra said her impulsive action had nothing to do with fellow topless show guest star Holly Madison’s decision to go topless during her stint as a guest star in “Peepshow.” 

Like Electra, Madison’s pasty-free premiere at Planet Hollywood was subject of much will-she-or-won’t-she speculation before her debut last month. Rather than competition, however, Electra views Madison as a fellow entertainer and friend. 

“There’s room for everyone,” the non-competitive and uncatty former Pussycat Doll said. “I’m such a girls’ girl; I support women and I think it’s great that she’s doing a show.”

 Electra said joining the “Crazy Horse” cast has been a thrilling experience. “I’m just having a blast so far doing this,” she said. 

“The dancers are so amazing, they’re so lovely,” the former “Baywatch” babe gushed. “They have the most perfect bodies and attitudes and they’re so much fun to work with.”

Naked Mona Lisa Secretely Hiding in Las Vegas?

An original Leonardo da Vinci painting of a topless Mona Lisa may be just locked away in Las Vegas, being tracked down by art collectors. MonaLisa

Another Sin City urban legend?  Maybe not.  The wild scenario surfaced yesterday on MSNBC’s Web site about a similar da Vinci artwork now on exhibit in the Tuscan town of Vinci, the birthplace of da Vinci in 1452. 

“The newly revealed painting, hidden for almost a century within the wood wall of a private library, shows a portrait of a half-naked women with clear links to the famous (clothed) Mona Lisa,” according to Discovery News. 

The bombshell came at the end of the article when Alessandro Vezzosi, director of Museo Ideale, the museum that housed the painting, wrote, “Our quest for naked Mona Lisas continues.  We are now on the tracks of another interesting version of Las Vegas.”

The Crazy Girls Show in Las Vegas Struts for U.S. Topless Domination

The Crazy Girls is a topless show showing plenty of bottoms at the Riviera Casino in Las Vegas.  But now they also want to spread their sin, taking their wares in a move across America.  While they are still appearing in their topless show atCrazyGirls the Riviera, a new Crazy Girls Cafe could perhaps be coming to a neighborhood near you. 

Producer-owner Norbert Aleman is preparing to unveil the first Crazy Girls Cafe in the French Quarter in New Orleans.  Then he has ambitious plans set for a string of them from as nearby as Reno to as far away as Atlantic City, N.J. 

Dancers will strut their stuff atop the bar and customer tables at each place, and there’ll be a gorgeous female singer who’ll play mistress to oversee the party hijinx. 

“It’s a fun, wild concept that marries fabulous food with delicious drinks and an outrageous party feel,” Norbert said. “It’s priced right so people will want to shake off the economic blues with a real fun night out without feeling pained when the check arrives.” 

Norbert plans to have 10 venues open over the next 12 months under terms of a deal he has made with a Las Vegas gaming entertainment company.
