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.

Former Spice Girl Melanie Brown isn't the shy type, but she admits she's had to explore unorthodox methods to prep for her upcoming burlesque-style show in Las Vegas.

"My friend hypnotized me before I started rehearsals to have a real open mind," the singer, 34, says of April 18 debut in PEEPSHOW, at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino. Mel B and actress Kelly Monaco, both Dancing With the Stars alums, will appear in the racy production with topless dancers – but will keep on their own tops.

Mel B: The Spice Girls Are Finished for Good

Originally posted 09/05/2008 09:30AM

The Spice Girls seemed to leave the door open for another reunion when their tour ended in February, but Melanie Brown says that door has shut for good.

Asked whether the group would ever come together to tour again, Brown offered a quick and emphatic "No" to reporters Thursday night at the 8th Annual BMI Urban Awards in Beverly Hills, adding, "[last year's tour] was our final goodbye."

But Scary Spice still misses her bandmates – Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice) and Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice) – despite comments she made recently, which indicated she and the girls are "not in touch much."

Friendship never ends?

That's not exactly true, admits Melanie Brown, who says she doesn't speak regularly to her fellow Spice Girls. "We're not in touch much," she tells the new issue of British magazine Closer.

And that includes Victoria Beckham – even though the two former bandmates live just a few miles apart in Los Angeles.

"Victoria and I are very different," Brown explains. "People bracket us together because we live in the same city and we're both interested in fashion. Victoria's fashion line has been very successful and hopefully mine will be too. But that's where the similarities begin and end."
