If you were following our Vegas DeLuxe Twitter last night, you knew that American Idol judge Paula Abdul was at dinner in Strip House at Planet Hollywood with BASE Entertainment head honcho Scott Zeiger. BASE produces Peepshow at Planet Hollywood, so this sighting will prompt speculation that Paula might eventually wind up in the adult burlesque show.
Not true, though. Paula and BASE have been in talks about a talent-type variety show at The Venetian and Palazzo. BASE has a strong presence there with Jersey Boys at the Palazzo and Phantom -- the Las Vegas Spectacular and Wayne Brady at The Venetian.
There are whispers that Paula could star in her own show in the Wayne Brady Theater while he’s appearing there or when his run is over.
No doubt that Paula also popped into see Peepshow while she was at Planet Hollywood last night. We’ll keep watching developments.
Updated at 10:50 a.m.: So Paula did go with BASE Entertainment chief Scott to the Wayne Brady Theater last night as we'd tweeted on Twitter. After dinner at Strip House, Paula and Scott bypassed Peepshow and instead went to The Venetian. There they watched Wayne Brady's Makin' It Up and afterward went backstage to meet in his dressing room. Paula also got a tour of the theater and backstage.
It all confirms the rumors we posted Monday that she's in serious talks with BASE for a show at Wayne's theater in The Venetian. We'll continue to watch this developing story of Paula's hoped for new Las Vegas show.
