The Vegas Attitude
Everybody puts on a character here. The way people look at each other immediately becomes more naughty.
Is it better to come with buddies or your wife?
Let's be real. My wife doesn't really enjoy gambling or going out too late. Definitely with your buddies. You can let loose.

STATUS DATING MODEL CHRISTINE TEIGEN
Do you use an alias when you stay in Vegas?
I use aliases at all my hotels. I had more fun here when I wasn't famous because it's fun being anonymous here.
Do you ever wear a disguise?
I'll put my hoodie on and wear sunglasses, but people recognize me anyway, so it's pretty worthless.
What's your Vegas guilty pleasure?
Gentlemen's clubs. But I haven't been to a strip club in a while.

How long do you typically spend in Vegas?
I come for a day and a half and pay my Vegas dues—which is when you lose money. I tack it up as being good for the economy.
Do you party full out?
When you're here, you might as well do as the Romans do—which is get sick and wonder why you came.

STATUS DATING LEANN RIMES
Before putting on clothes or anything: a nice, strong coffee. That's all I need.
What's the latest you've stayed up in Vegas?
I've pulled all-nighters. Stay up all night, gamble all day and before you know it, you have to stay up all night again.

STATUS DATING ASHLEY OLSEN
A change of underwear and a full wallet. When I leave, I usually have an empty wallet and no underwear.
Sexiest Thing You've Seen in Vegas
Love, the Beatles Cirque du Soleil show. It's sexy and lovely. It's sexier than a strip club.
Room Service Order
Jumbo shrimp cocktail with a dirty martini. Nothing makes you feel like you're in the Rat Pack like that.

Greatest Vegas Moment
I met David Hasselhoff. He probably has no recollection of it, but it happened, I swear!
Bring a girl, see a show, have a beautiful dinner! Always avoid the Vegas hookup.
What do you love to do here?
People-watch. It's amusing.
I love going to Caesars Palace and spending half a day in the spa. They have a snow room, different pools and a Jacuzzi.
Does your behavior change when you're here?
A lot of people become idiots. I hold myself together.
Peepshow. It was just some beautiful women taking off their clothes. Never a bad thing in my book.
The best thing here is the Gamblers Special at the restaurant in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino: $7.77 for a steak, potatoes and a salad. Amazing.
What was your wildest night in Vegas?
My wildest night was the only night I've ever been here—last night. My friend kept getting turned down at the clubs because he appeared intoxicated.

Wildest Night in Vegas
I was with my parents for my 21st birthday. I went to a couple of clubs and walked past them on the way to my room at 4:30 a.m. They were still gambling.
The Big O
I like the oxygen they pump into Vegas hotels. You feel a little loopy—and revitalized. I feel like I'm doing a bad drug, then I realize it's a basic need.
It sounds clichéd, but James Dean. What he embodies is still fresh, classy and timeless.
