Jenna Jameson hosted the week’s most highly anticipated party last night at the newly opened Playboy Club located in the Palms hotel. Jameson, along with the Club Jenna girls and porndom’s jet-set, celebrated the launch of the Club Jenna Channel on the recently revamped Spice Digital Network. Jameson, who received nods for Best Director and Best Film this year for The Provocateur, addressed party attendees early in the evening with a heart-felt speech, thanking everyone for a tremendously successful year and urging them to have fun and party.
And party they did. The girls hit the dance floor and the guys headed for the fully stocked bars where buxom babe bartenders in short silver skirts kept spirits high.
Go-Go dancers shook their tail-feathers to Kiss songs as god of thunder Gene Simmons held court with the Club Jenna girls while being filmed for his VH1 reality show, The Family Jewels.
Not to be out done, LA Direct Models owner Derek Hay surrounded himself with a bevy of starlets that included Rita Faltayano, Trina Michaels, Nikki Bends, Brooke Haven, Carly Parker, Penny Flame, Avy lee Roth, Jezebelle Bond, Emilliana, and Harmony. “Big thanks to Jenna for inviting us to a kick ass party,” said Hay.
The Playboy Club’s panoramic view of Las Vegas dropped more jaws to the floor than a Coffee Ron release. “The view is spectacular,” said Missy Monroe from the club’s balcony high above Las Vegas. Monroe, who is up for Best Actress in a Video this year for her performance in Hustler Video’s The Da Vinci Load, said she has retired from performing and announced that she is pregnant.
Downstairs, Playboy bunnies served drinks and dealt cards. Elegant Angel owner Patrick Collins pushed his luck at the tables while his company’s new marketing director, Mike Barbella, looked on nervously. “Dude, I already lost my car in a game this week,” said Barbella.
Others seen taking in the Playboy Club’s elegant design and décor while schmoozing included Kick Ass Pictures' Mark Kulkis, Audrey Bitoni, Jim Powers, Holly Morgan, Aaralyn Barra, Jaylynn, Paul Thomas and AVN’s Paul Fishbein.
