LAS VEGAS - Pamela Anderson will replace Carmen Electra as special guest star
in Hans Klok's new show, "The Beauty of Magic," at the Planet Hollywood Resort
Electra said at a press conference last week that she would be with the
show for three months. Publicists had hailed it as her stage debut in Las Vegas
and promised "sultry surprises."
But the 35-year-old actress pulled out for "scheduling reasons," said Bill
Taylor, chief executive of Stage Entertainment, which produces Klok's show.
"We couldn't work dates out," Taylor said.
In announcing her special guest appearance, Anderson popped out of an
apparently empty box at the crowded Extra lounge at the former Aladdin
casino-hotel on the Las Vegas Strip.
"My kids are going to love this," the 39-year-old actress said Thursday.
"This is my dream of being a Vegas showgirl come true."
The grand opening of the show is June 2.
