New Kids on the Block, Paula Abdul at T-Mobile; pool, club parties galore

Blonde bombshell Kendra Wilkinson (“Kendra on Top,” “The Girls Next Door”) begins previews Saturday of her new show “Sex Tips for Straight Women From a Gay Man” at Paris Las Vegas ahead of the June 8 premiere.

In exclusive news, we get a nearly naked centerfold look at her as she transforms from the shy, nervous librarian Robin into a sexy single thanks to Cher’s director and choreographer, Denise Faye, who created the Park Theater at Monte Carlo headliner’s 2017 Billboard Music Awards routine last Sunday at T-Mobile Arena.

The fast-as-a-flash fantasy dance occurs in the closing moments of “Sex Tips” with Kendra performing a surprise striptease. On a break from rehearsals this week at Anthony Cools Theater, Kendra told me:

“We took two days to come up with the dance for the end of the show. It will be a surprise because this is new to the show. We had two days of practice, and that’s making me a little nervous because this is a full-on ‘Dancing With the Stars’-type of dance routine.”

Co-star Jai Rodriguez (“Queer Eye for the Straight Guy”) added: “We have a heartthrob, actor Michael Milton, who plays Stephan, and my character helps facilitating them getting together. The ladies will get to see somewhat The Full Monty with his character.

“But because we have the gorgeous Kendra in this Las Vegas production, what an opportunity to see them consummate their moment, if you will, in a really tasteful, beautiful way. If you were walking in to see Kendra and you were sad you got her dull, librarian character from the start of the show, then by the end you’re going to get the Kendra you came for. It’s sexy burlesque.”

Kendra chimed in: “Oh, yeah, it all comes off — not all, but most! It’s the happy ending where you will see Playboy Kendra in that moment. It’s the evolution of what all women will get from the play. It’s time to celebrate and live free, have fun with ourselves and celebrate our sexuality without shame or judgment.”

Check back for our full Q+A with Kendra and Jai next week, but they’re not the only ones in the spotlight this Memorial Day Weekend. We run the gamut from Air Supply at The Orleans and Vince Neil at Downtown Grand to New Kids on the Block at T-Mobile Arena and DJ superstars at pool and nightclub parties through Monday.

5 things connecting Las Vegas and Marilyn Monroe
1. Marilyn Monroe, known then as Norma Jeane, obtained her first divorce in Las Vegas at the age of 20 on September 13, 1946. 2. According to some biographers, Monroe lived at 604 S. 3rd Street for four months during the summer of 1946. The house has since been torn down and is now the site of a parking lot. 3. In 1954, Monroe almost married Joe DiMaggio in Las Vegas but the wedding was called off last minute. The wedding was to be held at the Hotel El Rancho Vegas which was located on the southwest corner of Sahara Avenue and Las Vegas Boulevard. 4. Las Vegas has at least one road dedicated to the star. Marilyn Monroe Avenue is located in east Las Vegas and intersects with Betty Davis Street and Cary Grant Court. 5. There are currently more than 20 Marilyn Monroe impersonators for hire in the Las Vegas Valley.
