LAS VEGAS STAR GONE WILD!
Las Vegas actress Vanessa Marcil doesn't waste her time in Sin City gambling or hanging around the all-you-can-eat buffet. "We love to go to the strip clubs," she admits, offering a tip for any female first-timers: "If you sit in front and tip the girls very well they love you 'cause then they don't have to dance for the guys that they don't really like." Marcil, a 35-year-old mom (she has a 1-year-old son with former Beverly Hills, 90210 costar Brian Austin Green), is partial to the club Cheetah's, where she admits to being a big tipper. "I'll leave $100 – but she better be hot!"
STEVEN TYLER'S MOST VALUED AWARD
Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler now can add an especially personal award to his collection – a gold medallion recognizing 17 years of sobriety. "Addiction wore me down," the 55-year-old rocker and honoree shared at the Musicians Assistance Program Awards in Beverly Hills. "It took my children from me. It broke the band up. It made me broke. So when someone turned me on to sobriety, they said, 'Look where you are, man. Your best thinking got you in a locked ward.' And it's amazing. In the blink of an eye, you finally see the light." Tyler, currently touring on a double bill with KISS, is also beaming about the recent marriages of daughters Liv and Mia. So what does he think about the idea of becoming a rock and roll grandpa? "I love it. I've been a mother all my life. It's time to be a daddy."
