Indian Casino Gambling – What’s Your Reservation? (Part 4)

Thursday, December 14th, 2006

Forget fearless. This Indian tribe never signed the US peace treaty, and is now going rock n’ roll.

Meet the Seminole Indians of Florida. Newest owners of Hard Rock. Earliest ancestors of Native American Indian casino gambling. And as the so-named Unconquered People, the only Native American Indian tribe to never actually sign a formal peace treaty with the United States. Maybe it’s something about feeling invincible when in a ‘sunny state‘ but these folks are the baddest overachieving mofos of all.

Seminole Indian Casinos of Florida

The Seminole Indians are originally from Florida, where some 300 of them stayed to fight colonizers and have grown into a population of 3,100. Another 3,000 driven west of the Mississippi River set up a second home in Oklahoma, where there are now 6,000 of them. The tribe is so rooted in Florida that Florida State University sports teams are christened ‘Seminoles‘, plus a city and a county are named after them, and another county is named for tribe leader Osceola.

Peace treaty refusal is one in several historical what’s-what attributed to the Seminoles. Another is that they started…

Hard Rock Becoming Highest Paid Indian Casino

Monday, December 11th, 2006

Presenting the fiercest rock n’ roll makeover: Hard Rock transforms into an Indian casino.

The Seminole tribe of Florida, fathers of Native American Indian casino gaming — now a $22 billion a year business, is buying Hard Rock. The very expensive purchase includes Hard Rock casinos, hotels, restaurants, and what is reputed as the world’s largest collection of rock n’ roll memorabilia.

The Hard Rock acquisition is believed to be the record first by any Native American Indian tribe of a major international corporation of its size, a groundbreaking $965 million deal with a British company, Rank Group PLC. Indian casinos Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun have previously made similar if less costly partnerships with two separate non-Indian casino gaming entities.

The sale, scheduled to be completed in March 2007, entitles Florida’s Seminole Indians to owning 124 Hard Rock Cafes, four Hard Rock Hotels, two Hard Rock Casino Hotels, two Hard Rock Live! concert venues, and stakes in the Hard Rock business’ three unbranded hotels. For its part, London-based Rank has retained the Hard Rock London Casino and rebranding it into Rank Gaming.

The purchase excludes Hard Rock business owned by Morgans Hotel Group, which are the Hard Rock Las Vegas Casino and Hard Rock intellectual property in Australia, Brazil, Israel, Venezuela, and many US regions west of the…

Paris and Nikki Hilton does a Sister Act? Courtney Love in for the mention.

Monday, December 11th, 2006

After parading in Los Angeles with the panty-less new best friend, Britney Spears, the queen of infectious indecency drags her sister to a wild party at the Playboy Mansion.

And sister act Paris and Nikki Hilton acted anything but.

News of the World revealed the wild night out of the hotel heiresses at Hugh Hefner‘s bachelor (or more aptly dirty old man’s) multi-million dollar pad and posing for the cameras in their skimpy nighties. Sounds innocent enough right? Paris & Nikki Hilton at the Playboy MansionBut wait till you hear the rest of the story:

“Paris, wearing stockings and suspenders and an animal-print basque, seems to be loving every minute of being captured bottom to bottom with Nicky, 23.

Their feet are clamped on the roof of their limo as they soak up the limelight. In another shot Paris, 25, hugs and kisses her wide-eyed little sis – who is dressed in only a silky slip.”

Betting on Celebrity Marriages, Divorces (2 of 2)

Thursday, November 9th, 2006

Celebrity divorce isn’t a product of today’s dime-a-dozen stars but as old as Hollywood.

J Lo, although married a rumored four times, is not the mother of Hollywood divorces. Zsa Zsa Gabor has been married nine times; Elizabeth Taylor and Lana Turner, eight times; Judy Garland, five times; Christie Brinkley, four times. Granted, it’s more lately that stars are marrying and/or getting knocked up by their bodyguards, trainers, dancers, roadies, waiters, nannies.

No stars are spared, including those who were the stuff of fairytale romance. Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise called it quits after 11 years, from 1990 to 2001, while Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston said their goodbyes after five years, from 2000 to 2005. And the saga continues: celebrity betting odds of 1/10 the Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes wedding will be Scientologist, 3/1 Catholic, 100/1 Amish.

Britney Spears on November 7th filed for divorce from two-year husband Kevin Federline. Betting picks were quick to catch up on that one. Will Britney have her kids’ last names changed legally to Spears by…

Britney Files For Divorce To End K-Fed’s Free Ride

Wednesday, November 8th, 2006

PoppyZBaby no. 2 still fresh off Britney Spears and the new mama files for divorce to end Papa K-Fed’s free ride to fame and fortune.

Probably smelling the advancing stink of Kevin’s flop musical ventures, the pop princess decides to put a cork to what is foreseen as depreciation of her bank account if she doesn’t wake up and stop the madness.

TMZ reports it obtained the legal papers, filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, citing “irreconcilable differences.” In her petition, Spears asks for both legal and physical custody of the couple’s two children, one-year old Sean Preston and two-month old Jayden James, with Federline getting reasonable visitation rights.

Kevin FederlineThe site also cited that Britney will have no worry on the alimony as the couple had an “iron clad prenup”. The two married in 2004, eight months after the alcohol induced 55-hour marriage of Spears to old friend Jason Alexander.

In the divorce papers, Spears asks for custody of the kids, of course with visitation rights for Federline. And maybe a trickle of child support, or the cookie crumbs Kevin has had for the last week or so.

The filing also lists, “miscellaneous jewelry and other personal affects,” as separate property and thereby off-limits to Federline. Earnings and other assets to be determined later.

We, the celebrity crazed population, however…

Atlantic City – Poor Man’s Las Vegas No More

Friday, September 8th, 2006

Time was, you went to Las Vegas for the VIP rooms and to Atlantic City for the penny slots.

You drove to Vegas as a nightlifer all glammed and loaded for the blackjack swim-up table. And then you rode the bus to Atlantic City as a daytripper wrestling with retirees for your turn at its 38,000 slot machines. LV and AC were side-by-side in gambling but the similarity ended there.

Atlantic City casinos hauled $5.02 billion in gambling revenue last year, not a far cry from the $6.4 billion Las Vegas casinos raked in. Outside of gambling, Las Vegas made $7 billion from hotel stay, restaurants, and entertainment – leaving Atlantic City to eat its trail of dust with a measly $1 billion earned from the same.

So what went wrong? The tale of our two cities began the same: lives of organized crime. But Las Vegas would shed the gangsta image by going upmarket whereas Atlantic City took the downmarket route. At long last, Atlantic City snaps out of its poor man mentality and tries to beat Vegas at its own game.

Gambling. It took the $1.1 billion Borgata hotel casino for AC to aim higher than quarter reels so we’re okay that it is the city’s highest-grossing casino, with $704 million in 2005 gambling revenue.

MGM Mirage, the world’s second largest casino operator, Morgan Stanley, and Steve Wynn are now looking to develop casino properties here. We’re talking 85 acres adjacent to Borgata, 20 acres at the Boardwalk, and a little-used municipal air strip, respectively.

Hotels. LV and AC shared the same hotel occupancy rate of…

Things You Can’t Not Do in Las Vegas

Thursday, September 7th, 2006
Top ten things to do in Las Vegas aside from gambling: What’s wrong with that picture?

I am visiting Las Vegas for the first time in years, and have been prowling the Web for newish travel tips. After all, this city reinvents itself more ways than Madonna; being MIA for so long, I might as well wear a conspicuous, foreign-charactered camera ’round my neck – all over again.

After a week of feeding off of others’ non-gambling bright ideas, it hit me: How can anyone be in Vegas and not gamble? It’s like passing up on cheesecake when in Brooklyn. These silly lists told me not to gamble but not one ever said where it’s best to gamble, and people wonder why it blows to be politically correct.

In the end, I answered my own question – the best things to do in Vegas are things best done in Vegas just because you are in Vegas. Capiche?

1. Get touristy. Now that poker celebrities are the new black, what are the chances I’d run into Robin Tunney and feel obligated to smile? Thankfully, it’s nowhere near as likely as bumping into an alien. In 2005, 38.6 million tourists spent $36.8 billion in Las Vegas. Over 133,000 hotel rooms had an occupancy rate of 89.2% at an average room rate of $103.

For the trouble of joining the madding influx of aliens, here’s what I’d like to know: Is it still worth getting touristy over 101 year old Vegas? Need I bother blinging up for…

10 Billion Dollar Babes You Should Know (4 of 4)

Wednesday, August 16th, 2006
Old money vs. new money. Born rich vs. married rich. Privileged vs. fortunate.

Our obsession over social status is more alive than ever. Its latest incarnations: the billionaire heiress, the celebutante, the rich bitch. She is someone whose trust fund and inheritance are off the roof. She’s either a spoiled brat wasting daddy’s money away or filthy rich with a conscience and earning her keep. At one point or another, she has been a fashion model, resided in NYC, ridden horses (mind those free horse galleries), been blond.

(Scroll further down below for who isn’t on our list, and for who might be on our next list – that is, if we ever find the energy to pull this sh!t again.)

For the last time with feelings, meet the top ten billionaire heiresses whom you should namedrop as if you have their number.

10. Nicky Hilton, 22.
9. Athina Onassis Roussel, 21.
8. Georgina Bloomberg, 23.
7. Anna Anisimova, 21.
6. Aerin Lauder, 36.
5. Holly Branson, 25.
4. Ivanka Trump, 24.
3. Dylan Lauren, 31.
2. Lydia Hearst-Shaw, 21.

1. Amanda Hearst, 22. Now that Paris Hilton is so five years ago, Amanda is widely dubbed as the new ‘it’ girl. She and Lydia Hearst-Shaw, aka the Hearst cousins, are the new Hilton sisters. A student and Ford/Elite fashion model, Amanda is the new face of preppy designer Lilly Pulitzer. Hearst Corp.’s own…

Cashing in on the Hollywood Baby Boom?

Wednesday, July 12th, 2006

People magazine labelled it as Hollywood’s Baby Boom. It’s a trend Brangelina, Tomkat, and the Federlines got everyone talking and the paparazzi stalking. Baby Shiloh Nouvel fetched $4 million for photos, baby Suri is being shopped for higher. And if you’re smart, you’ll put your money where the pouch is.

Celebrity babies are the new black. Sofia Coppola is expecting her first in November, with boyfriend Thomas Mars (of French rock band Phoenix). Geri Halliwell had her first in May, and named her Bluebell Madonna. And isn’t Nicole Kidman, the new Mrs. Keith Urban, sporting a baby bump yet?

While sexy Wimbledon is shriveling, sexy Hollywood is ballooning. The pricey question is, boy or girl? Well, depends on how the celeb parents plan to use the poor child.

Britney Spears and Kevin Federline. Oops, she did it again only 10 months after son Sean Preston. Pregger moms are believed to look prettier if carrying a girl, and since she did that CBS interview looking all deranged… But who do you think can deal better with a misshapen head due to motherly neglect? -160 odds say girl and +120 odds say boy, on Bodog celebrity betting props.

Anna Nicole Smith. Her son Daniel is aged 21, and this new one’s credited to photojournalist Larry Birkhead. If she learned anything from now-departed nemesis E. Pierce Marshall, will a son keep scheming wives off of mommy’s hard-earned fortune? Will a daughter inherit mommy’s treasure-mining…
