Casting call seeks 300 for nuptials

CORRECTION ON 08/27: Doug Elfman’s Friday column erred on the wedding of “Bachelorette” couple Jesse Csincsak and Ann Lueders. Their wedding is today and not open to the public. The Sunday event that is open to the public at hotel Rumor is the reception.

Well, this is weird.

"Bachelorette" winner Jesse Csincsak and his pregnant fiancee, "Bachelorette" Ann Lueders, are getting married Sunday at the pool at hotel Rumor, across the street from the Hard Rock.

The weird part is you are invited. The first 300 people who show up at the pool -- you, me, homeless pimps, whoever -- can hang from noon till 4 p.m. and booze it up.

Apparently, the couple (or someone else) leaked their unborn baby's ultrasound to Radar magazine because Radar published it.

"Bachelor" crier Vienna Girardi, who really, really seems to want to be famous a lot, is on Sunday's guest list -- and so are "Bachelorette" participant Molly Mesnick and "Bachelor" husband Jason, plus a boatload of "Bachelor" also-rans, and Louie Vito, the Olympic snowboarder who was on "Dancing With the Stars."


Sean Hannity is returning to the Orleans Arena tonight for a "Freedom Concert" featuring the Charlie Daniels Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Christian singer Michael W. Smith.

But "Freedom" is never free. Tickets cost $70-$80.

I asked Fox News for an interview with Hannity to give him the same chance to spew politics that I give lefty Bill Maher when he plays the same hotel. But all Fox News did was e-mail me links to concert information and never responded to requests for an interview. Well, hoity-toity to you, too, señor Hannity.

When I called a publicist for Hannity, her outgoing message told me in case of an emergency, I could "page" her.

Fox News still gives out pagers?


I've seen Santana for years, but I've never seen him play as tight as he did Wednesday at the Hard Rock. He and his great band played hits and cover songs almost exactly as they sound in radio edits, but they also mixed in impressive (and not-too-long) solo jams.

Santana is back at the Hard Rock today-Sunday ($55-$155).

But don't expect to see famous guests. At Wednesday's show, one-night guest singers included india.arie, Chris Daughtry and Gavin Rossdale. They were all quite good, but Rossdale was the winner, covering a shockingly entertaining "She's Not There."
