In The Showgirl Next Door, Holly Madison takes readers on a tour through the glitz and glitter of Las Vegas and the stark natural beauty of the surrounding desert from the unique perspective of a Strip headliner.
Madison, who stars in Peepshow at Planet Hollywood, has access like no author, to high-roller areas and mansion-in-the-sky suites that are closed to all but a privileged few. In a chapter illustrated by dozens of photos, she leads a virtual tour through some of the most exclusive spots in Vegas including, the Napoleon Suite at Paris Las Vegas, the Verona Suite (former home of Elvis Presley) at the Las Vegas Hilton and many more.
She also takes a look at the wacky attractions on the road from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, the peripatetic history of this former desert outpost, the evolution of the Vegas showgirl, the restaurants and clubs that pack the city and all of the activities and attractions, from snowboarding and off-road exploring to roller coasters and pool parties, that make the city so much fun.
In addition, Holly provides behind-the-scenes looks at Peepshow and her TV reality show, Holly’s World, and provides tips on looking fabulous in the desert.
Through it all, Holly maintains her cheerful, optimistic spirit and makes it obvious why she fell crazy in love with her adopted hometown.
