Prince Harry Parties It Up In Las Vegas

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

Prince Harry has been deemed dirty Harry and I never really understood why until now.

It turns out, Prince Harry is indeed a naughty boy, but its hard not to be in the city of sin, after all, it is Las Vegas. Photos have surfaced of Prince Harry in the buff, with an unidentified beauty in a hotel suite at the Wynn. Of course Prince Harry’s sexy shenanigans are being taken very seriously at Buckingham Palace, who has asked British press not to print the leaked phone photos.

Prince Harry was captured front and back in the buff, and he had plenty of other fun whilst in Las Vegas. There was the dive in the XS pool at Encore, where he proceeded to challenge Olympic champion Ryan Lochte in a race, and then there was the much talked about sexy game of strip pool he had played with a buff beauty,

Harry did take care to try and hide his “royal jewels” with his hands, but there were still plenty of shots taken of him in the buff.

Somehow, I don’t think this is the last we’ve heard of Prince Harry’s antics. The next event is sure to be even more interesting.

Cher Getting Hitched This Fall

Monday, August 20th, 2012

It looks like Cher has found love again, as it has been reported that she is set to marry former Hells Angel biker Tim Medvetz this fall in sin city.

Not too many details have been released in regards to their plans, but it has been reported that they are planning to have a quick ceremony at a wedding chapel in Las Vegas. It turns out that the couple will go on a road trip across the United States, and from there, end up in Las Vegas.

The National Enquirer was told by a friend of Cher’s that “Cher and Tim plan to hop on the back of a chopper this fall and take off on a road trip that will end at a Vegas wedding chapel.”

Cher is 66, and her fiancé is 42. Cher and Tim came close to tying the knot in 2008, but her busy career changed their plans. The romance ended at that point, and it was through the urging of her two sons, Chaz and other son Elijah Blue, that she rekindle the relationship. She did it, and she’s never been happier.

This will be Cher’s third walk down the aisle. Congratulations Cher!
