Single mom's star ascends


Angel Porrino certainly isn't the only single mother/dancer in Vegas. The Strip has that suit in spades. But Vegas native Porrino is rising to the top as fast as she can, considering she has a son on her hip.

The "Holly's World" co-star already fills in during Holly Madison's vacations at "Peepshow."

On Thursday, the hot new Caesars show "Absinthe" officially announced Porrino, 21, will take over its featured balloon act. That's where a woman dances, goes topless, then pulls a giant balloon over her whole body.

"I'm hoping to add a little tap routine to it and make it sexier than it already is," Porrino said Thursday. (She studied tap, jazz, ballet and hip-hop dancing since she was 2.)

Porrino, who went to Mountain View Christian School, is also eager to star in her own reality show, which isn't a pipe dream. She's well-liked by people at E! network.

But her almost-2-year-old son, Roman, keeps her too busy to go all-in toward a more famous future.

"I have a lot of goals," she told me while Roman was throwing a little fit. "I'm just taking it slowly right now.

"Even having this interview right now is hard. My mom helps me a lot when she can, but she also works."

You should have heard that kid wail. I don't know how you single mothers do it.
