Carmen Electra at Wet Republic

Sex symbol Carmen Electra will be the guest striptease star to open the exotic and erotic Pussycat Dolls Burlesque Saloon at Planet Hollywood on June 4. PCD producer and choreographer Robin Antin invited me to watch a dress rehearsal after the premiere of The Hangover, Part II on Saturday ahead of Wednesday’s soft opening of PCD Burlesque Saloon.

Wow! This is going to be one super-sensual lounge at the new Gallery Nightclub complete with stripper poles, a bejeweled fairground carnival horse, a seductive swing and a diamond-studded bathtub. Even the Pussycat Dolls name is emblazoned in rhinestones at the bar for the dancers to cavort their curves. (Robin first revealed some of these details to VegasDeLuxe.com in March.)

Vintage videos of pinup queen Bettie Page are used as the background lighting of the stage risers. I watched as six of the most amazing knockout dancers in corsets, stockings and suspenders shook, shimmied and strutted their stuff. I can promise that it’s so hot, jaws will drop. I’m convinced that guests will drop their drinks with the breath-stopping, pulsating action as temperatures soar sky high.

“It’s unbelievable,” Robin told me. “I’m so happy with how it’s all turned out. We’ve managed to step it up a million notches. It was amazing when we had the lounge at Pure in Caesars Palace, but this is everything I’d ever dreamed of it becoming.

“These girls really know how to dance. It’s the hottest entertainment you’ll ever see in Las Vegas. It’s turned into such hot, nonstop action, people will go away talking about it forever.”
