BREAKING: Pam's Backstage "Shenanigans"

Sorry I've been lax in posting the past few days as I catch up with work and deal with some family drama. Plenty to report in coming days, so stay tuned.

But here's something that just won't wait. Tonight Miles and I attended the opening of the Hans Klok-Pamela Anderson show at Planet Ho, "The Beauty of Magic." We'll have a full report on "The Strip" podcast this week for sure.

Anyhow...the premiere was scheduled to start at 7:30 pm so, stupid us, we actually were in our seats around that time. By 8 pm, we'd seen almost everyone we actually like -- Robin Leach, the R-J's Mike Weatherford, the Sun's John Katsilometes -- and were getting antsy. (Norm, where were ya?!?)

So we corralled a prominent Planet Ho exec to ask what the hold up was. And this is what was said:

"Pam is back there with David LaChappelle and Amy Winehouse and there are some, uh, shenanigans."

Amy Winehouse is the up-and-coming British singer who has become known for canceling concerts because of her drinking. David LaChappelle, of course, directed Elton John's "The Red Piano" show at Caesars Palace's Colosseum, and Pam pole-dances in the video that accompanies Elton's "The Bitch Is Back."

We can only imagine what the "shenanigans" were -- or why it would hold up the show, seeing how Pam doesn't appear in "The Beauty of Magic" until about 45 minutes in.
