Dealer calls golfer 'one loose cannon'


Pro golfer Anthony Kim could use a lesson or two to brush up his gaming table etiquette.

His salty language and screaming was so bad that Kim, 25, was asked to tone it down Monday by Bellagio management.

"He is one loose cannon," said a dealer, who said Kim may have set a personal record for F-bombs while playing high-stakes craps over the weekend.

Two years after brilliant Ryder Cup play spurred comparisons to Tiger Woods, Kim is attempting to get his game back on track after thumb surgery in May.

He's entered in the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, which starts today at TPC. He's playing with former UNLV star Charley Hoffman today. They tee off at 11:58 a.m.

Kim and poker superstar Phil Ivey were seated at the same table on Friday, ordering cognac and high-end whiskey.

Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil and new girlfriend Alicia Jacobs went public with their romance Monday at a photo exhibition of celebrity shooter Denise Truscello at the Mandarin Bar high above Mandarin Oriental.

They were celebrating one month together. Their first date was at Nove Italiano at the Palms, after Hilton Las Vegas Vice President Ken Ciancimino played middle man in setting it up.

Ciancimino was on the telephone with Neil last month when Jacobs said hello at lunch. Neil had Ciancimino ask Jacobs whether she would go to dinner with the recently separated rocker. She agreed, and he called the next day. They had met four years ago when she interviewed him at the opening of his tattoo shop at O'Shea's.

"He put a fake tattoo on my leg -- a logo of his tattoo shop," she said.

She's no band groupie, she said. "I had never heard of him before," she said.

Huh?

I'm a showtunes girl," she said. During a recent getaway to Los Angeles, "he named off 10 (Motley Crue) songs, and I didn't know one of them."

Meantime, KLAS-TV, Channel 8, morning anchor Dayna Roselli is in London this week to attend her friend Matt Goss' appearance at Royal Albert Hall.

She tweeted Tuesday "crowd going nuts" over the return of the Caesars Palace lounge star.

His songlist Tuesday included "Lovely Las Vegas," the theme song he wrote and sang for "More," the morning show at KVVU, Channel 5.

Goss was a United Kingdom boy band sensation in the 1980s with his twin brother.
