Elaine Wynn says ‘rumblings’ wrong

Elaine Wynn, addressing for the first time published accounts of a split with her husband, Wynn Resorts chairman and CEO Steve Wynn, denounced a report that appeared here Friday that referred to “rumblings” that he was planning to move his alleged girlfriend into one of his resorts.

In a statement relayed by a company rep, Elaine Wynn characterized that information as “completely inaccurate.”

She continued, “There is no intention of anyone else residing in Las Vegas.

“There will only be one person that will occupy the villa and that will be Mr. Wynn.

“There are no plans for him to have a relationship while Mrs. Wynn is in Las Vegas.

“For now she has no plans to leave.”

The rep added, “She is a director in the company and will remain to be one in the company.”

Details of the rumored split were first reported in the New York Post’s Page Six column earlier this week.

Reporters were told the Wynns would not comment on their private lives.

MODELS TO APPEAR

Models featured in Sports Illustrated’s upcoming swimsuit edition – traditionally a launching pad to supermodel status — will be making a first-ever party appearance in Las Vegas on Feb. 12 shortly after the unveiling.

A group numbering between “several and a half dozen” will be visiting a variety of different locations here leading up to the party at an undisclosed resort, Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority spokesman Vince Alberti said Friday.

Details are still being worked out, Alberti said, but the models are likely to be introduced to shopping, dining, entertainment and nightclub venues.

They will fly in from New York where Sports Illustrated historically has a trade event related to the popular issue.

Their Las Vegas appearance will be part of a three-way promotion involving Sports Illustrated, Southwest Airlines and the convention and visitors authority.

There have been Internet reports that the 2009 cover girl is Jessica Gomes, an Australian model of Singaporean and Portuguese heritage. She was in the swimsuit edition for the first time last year.

Marisa Miller was the 2008 cover girl, her seventh appearance in the swimsuit edition.

THE SCENE AND HEARD

Together, they are valued at $10,000, she said, and the police are involved. … The next addition to The Palazzo’s restaurant lineup will be First, a popular concept that had a 10-year run in New York City. From its second-floor location in the Shoppes at Palazzo, First will overlook the pirate battle at Treasure Island . A spring opening is planned for the eatery, which hopes to capture the convention crowd by day and the late-night crowd. Jon Newton will be the general manager and Sam DeMarco the executive chef.
