Tyson Beckford Makes His Chippendales Debut In Las Vegas

King Tyson rules the stage in Chippendales debut

Sexy muscles served with up in super model fashion at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas this weekend as international super model, film star, and fashion icon, Tyson Beckford made his debut with the world famous Chippendales as a special guest host for a limited four week engagement.

Beckford joins the acclaimed production injecting even more sex appeal into a cast that is already renowned for having the hottest men in Las Vegas. The production also boasts a recent reinvigoration with the addition of new choreography, a snazzy super-up LED wall and the latest music from the Billboard charts.

It all comes together in a “sexual sensory overload” kind of experience with the audience walking out on a sensual high.

In all my career, I’ve never met a super model before. Pictures just don’t do Tyson (I call him by his first name now) justice. Not only uber-handsome, but the second he met me he gave me a huge bear hug. Very, very warm and easy to chat with. He clearly gets along great with the guys, too.

Trailer: Joe Manganiello’s male stripper documentary “La Bare”

Joe Manganiello makes his directorial debut with this documentary exploring the world of male revues.

Following the shirtless hunks of Dallas’ La Bare, Manganiello pulls back the curtain on what he calls “a strange and provocative world hidden in plain sight.”

The film made it’s debut at Slamdance this past season and is being prepped for release this summer.

Because my husband works with the world famous Chippendales in Las Vegas, I’ve seen a lot of what happens in this environment and it’s really fascinating. Not just from the dancer’s perspective, but what the experience means to the women and how it affects them.

Survivor host Jeff Probst serves up the bacon – naked

Jeff Probst, hunky Survivor host,  tweeted a picture of his very chiseled,
very nude body serving up a plate of bacon and announcing he was “taking
it all off” for this week’s episode of Two and a Half Men.

Did I mention he’s 52 years old?  Looking good there, Jeff.

In an interview with Today, Probst explained how he landed a
guest role on the hit sitcom:

“I got a call from the casting director. I
happen to be friends with Jon Cryer and I texted him and he said, ‘I
just read the script. It’s really funny. You should do it.’ That was it.
And then they said, ‘Oh by the way, you’ll be naked.’ I mean, how can
you turn down Two and a Half Men? —one of the greatest comedies of all time.”

Adam Levine and his 70s porn vibe

A lot of folks envy Victoria Secret model Behati Prinsloo seeing as she’s engaged to Adam Levine and all that. But at least she’s kind enough to share those “special” moments with the rest of the world.

Behati posted a shot of Adam wearing nothing but underwear (well, okay, and sunglasses) to her Instagram, along with the caption. ”70′s porn called. It wants it’s vibe back. Immediately.”
