Cover your ears?
Former heavyweight champion of the world Mike Tyson is entering yet another phase of his post-fighting career: Strip performer. From April 13-18 at MGM, he’ll debut Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth—Live on Stage, a “confessional”-type show about his life. Call us cautiously optimistic: We caught Tyson on the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen, and Tyson was scarier on that thing than he ever was in the ring.
Men named Sue
Steve Wynn emerged triumphant in his civil defamation case against Girls Gone Wild creator Joe Francis, who is now planning to ask the judge to rescind the $7.5 million award because he wasn’t present and didn’t have a chance to defend himself. This has now been going on since 2008 with no end in sight, as Francis filed a lawsuit against Wynn last year. Seriously folks, this is the Las Vegas version of the never-ending story.
Someone like you
We don’t often feed the rumor mill, but we gotta put our two cents in here: Adele, please get married in Las Vegas. We’ve seen the ring, we know you’re head over heels for boyfriend Simon Konecki, and we know you’re a huge Elvis fan. Las Vegas needs a good celebrity wedding to wash away the memories of Sinead O’Connor, Real Housewife Brandi Glanville and Britney Spears. C’mon, Adele—you could be our bride.
