What magazine has over three million subscribers and is read by over twenty three million people every week, and has them waiting at their mail boxes to read the most wanted issue of the year? If you said the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition, then you are correct. It is one of the most read magazines in the world and has made many models famous and instant celebrities. Past models have been Heidi Klum, Elle Macpherson, Tyra Banks, Cindy Crawford and Christie Brinkley.

This year’s cover model is Irina Shayk who landed the cover this year after appearing in every issue since 2007. Irina is beautiful and stunning as are all the swimsuit models this year.

The SI models are making appearances in Las Vegas Nevada and on February 17, 2011 I went to their autograph signing at Rao’s Jefferson Park indoor patio in Caesars Palace. Long lines of fans were waiting to meet them and have them sign their magazine.


The cast members of Human Nature were there to serenade the models with a rendition of my girl and then presented them with red roses. Smokey Robinson presents Australia’s Human Nature and the show is a hit at The Imperial Palace. The show has been receiving rave reviews for their Motown Sound. The headliners are Phil Burton, Tobey Allen, Andrew Tierney & Michael Tierney. 




Genevieve, Kenza and Cintia took time to visit the Neil Leifer Gallery and instantly drew a crowd. The Gallery is on the casino level of the Augustus Tower at Caesars Palace. Take notice of Muhammad Ali’s boxing poster in the window. Over 170 photographs of Neil Leifer have been on SI covers and Neil has won many awards for his outstanding photos.  


While I was at Caesars I noticed a restaurant with hundreds of gold fish and an eye catching painting.
