So, as we go along the journey of The Randy Report you’ll notice I have a few favorite things: great music, the triumph of equality, my husband Michael, my best friend Carlye, and you can add to that mix The Chippendales.
Michael is the national press rep for the show, so we’ve gotten to know the guys pretty well over the past five years or so. They are really cool guys, and I always have a great time at the show. (Contrary to popular belief, men are allowed at the show. We see married couples, boyfriends and girlfriends, gay men at the show all the time).
The show in Las Vegas is at The Rio Hotel and Casino in The Chippendales’ $10 Million theater complex with it’s own cool lounge/bar and theater. The show isn’t what they used to call “strip and tip” anymore. It’s a “production” show with the vast majority of the show taking place with the guys on stage doing production numbers. It’s never vulgar and a lot of fun – no tipping, no dollar bills or any of that.
The guys have been featured on The View, ELLEN, The Wendy Williams Show, Oprah, and tons of reality shows. Michael has gotten press for guests at the show like Ronnie from Jersey Shore, Karina Smirnoff from Dancing With The Stars, Olivia Newton-John, Dorothy Hamill, Mel B from The Spice Girls, Holly Madison from Holly’s World and Peepshow… Just a ton of stuff.
Three of the guys – Lind, Billy and Jaymes – are on ELLEN today as a special surprise for a guest. If you can, watch. It’s always fun to watch the audience members lose their minds. I celebrate women having such a good time enjoying the idea of good looking, sexy men. It’s always a good, light-hearted fun time. There’s almost a universal reaction of “look, then scream.” So fun.
Oh yeah… I have a good time too. What’s not to like? Watch and have a good time kids.
