We have a delicious Wicked Whisper + Racy Rumor to start the week:
Did MINDFREAK LIVE! at The Luxor headliner magician Criss Angel pull a magic trick out of his sleeves to help end an 18-year feud between entertainment legends Wayne Newton and Tony Orlando over the weekend?
I didn’t know that the two singers hadn’t been talking to each other, but Tony did ’fess that they had a bad disagreement that left them “stone-faced silent” for nearly two decades. Was it a telethon event?
Criss was sitting between Wayne and Tony at the Jerry Lewis movie screening MAX ROSE at Village Square on Saturday afternoon. Then, as Tony told me: “There was this magical moment. It was wonderful. We just found ourselves hugging and put our disagreements behind us.
“Afterward, I asked Criss if he had anything to do with it. He just winked and smiled. Wayne graciously apologized that he’d been unable to appear at his recent Heal Every Life Possible benefit because he had been in New York for a previously committed awards ceremony. Wayne was total class, and now we talk again.”
Tony will be with me at Wednesday’s Casino Awards as part of the 2016 Global Gaming Expo.
