Since a federal judge struck down California's Proposition 8 ban on gay marriage, expect everything gay to be suddenly exalted as a celebration.
Over at the Rio's club Crown, Sunday's "Roller Boogie Night" is being rebilled from "Gay Skate on 8/8" to anti-''Prop 8 Skate."

AMERICAN IDOL ODDS
Vegas odds are in on who will be the next "American Idol" judges, according to Wynn odds man Johnny Avello. Some highlights:
Steven Tyler: 7 to 5.

Jennifer Lopez: 3 to 1.
Kara Dioguardi: 15 to 1.
Jessica Simpson: 18 to 1.
Harry Connick Jr.: 20 to 1.
Courtney Love: 30 to 1.
Usher: 45 to 1.
Bret Michaels: 50 to 1.

Howard Stern: 1,000 to 1.
But you can't lay down cash on those odds. They're for entertainment only, no betting.
