Exit Kelly Monaco. Enter Holly Madison.
The Girls Next Door
star will become the newest Las Vegas headliner beginning in June when she replaces Monaco in the sultry revue PEEPSHOW
, Madison tells PEOPLE.
"I feel like this is perfect for me," she said Thursday. "I've always wanted to be in a really classy, sexy burlesque show."
Monaco had signed a three-month contract to star in PEEPSHOW
, and Madison's deal will be similar. The Vegas production has quickly become a Dancing With the Stars
sorority of sorts. It currently stars Season 1 winner Monaco, 32, as well as Season 5 runner-up Melanie Brown, 33. PEEPSHOW
, which features topless dancers, began last month inside Planet Hollywood. Neither Monaco nor Brown is topless in the show. Madison is also expected to keep covered up.
"It's going to be a blast," Madison, 30, said, adding that she feels her DWTS
experience will help. "It's given me a lot more confidence. From being on that show, it will definitely help me stick to a really strict workout routine."
While on a current season, Madison suffered a rib injury that restricted some of her movements, but she is now healed, she says.
