Holly Madison pregnant!
Former Playboy Playmate and Hugh Hefner’s former girlfriend, Holly Madison, has announced this week that she is pregnant. Madison, 32, had recently announced she wanted to be a mother and began the process of adopting a child, only to find out she is actually three months pregnant, according to US Weekly. The baby’s father, Pasquale Rotella, CEO of Insomniac Events and Madison’s boyfriend of nine months, is overjoyed. According to US, “Holly and I are so excited to announce that we are going to be parents,” he tells People, “We’re in love and counting down the days until we meet our beautiful baby. I can hardly believe how lucky I am.” Rotella currently is out on $1.2 million bail after a grand jury indictment handed down 29 counts against him and three of his business partners after it was discovered they had bribed an official at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum with $2 million to allow them to throw the Electric Daisy Carnival and other dance parties at the venue, as well as at its sister location, the L.A. Sports Arena. The charges — which Rotella denies — came about after an investigation into the 2010 death of a 15-year-old girl at the EDC party after overdosing on ecstasy. Becoming parents may be very positive for both of their lives in the upcoming future.
Prince Harry is having one heck of a week!
As previously reported on Soaps.com, photos have surfaced of Prince Harry partying it up (sans clothes) in Las Vegas. Since then, his most recent girlfriend broke up with him, he was offered a guest host position at Chippendales, a pictorial spread for Playgirl magazine, and raced Olympic medalist swimmer, Ryan Lochte, and lost. According to the Inquisitor, “Chippendales at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino are reaching out to the royalty to gauge his interest in being our next guest host.” A representative explained to TMZ. “We figured that since he seems to enjoy taking his clothes off in Las Vegas, why not do it onstage at the #1 Male Revue in the World. MSN’s Celebrity Fix reports that Playgirl will pay the young man $1 million to pose nude in their magazine.” Although females all over the world would love for any of these scenarios to take place, the ‘three strikes’ against Prince Harry this week, plus the lectures from his father Charles, and grandmother, the Queen, may have calmed the “Party Prince” for the time being.
