The Return of the Threat of the Terrible Underboob

Evidently the threat of the terrible underboob is not enough to keep the Palms from allowing burlesque to attack yet again!

Poker Stars and Movie Stars Shine at the PokerStars.net Burlesque Party to Celebrate the World Series of Poker at the PALMS famed nightclub RAIN. Dita Von Teese will perform her signature Martini Dance to celebrate PokerStars and its 2000 players at the 2008 World Series of Poker.

You think it's not scary??? Check this out: a terrified onlooker fires upon the underboob of Bambi the Mermaid at the very dangerous Slipper Room show, Sealboy and the Blondes:

Wow, I'd really like to find out if they make her cover up; I mean, it's FOR a gambling tournament and I'm guessing they'll be serving spirits. It could be the end of days if she doesn't!

It should be interesting! She used to be a feature dancer, like a was, and when you do that you have to be able to adjust to all different county requirements. And she does corporate, where the requirements are different all the time. So she's probably accustomed to changes like that. Like you, I'm just wondering if the same rules will apply to this tournament that applied to us.

I saw George Michael in concert a few weeks ago, and when he sang "Feelin' Good," there was a video of Dita on the screen behind him. She was in pasties the whole time, but in the last shot she had her underboob covered as well. At the time I thought it was a fun MEW shout-out, but maybe it's part of a new costume?
