The disgraced Miss Nevada, Katie Rees, is holed up in the Hardwood Suite in the Fantasy Tower at Sin City’s Palms Casino Resort. Rees even had a slumber party there with her girlfriends (look out!)! Of course, the suite costs a steep $25,000 per night, which begs us to ask, where’s the money coming from?
Katie Rees was named “Miss Jet Las Vegas 2007” by JET nightclub at The Mirage this week. There was nothing racy this time around — her parents and grandparents were in the crowd. They must be so proud. When asked on her runway walk what was next for her, she gleefully replied, “Hollywood, baby!” Snap!
For her recent Miss Jet Las Vegas gig at the Mirage, Rees was rumored to have been paid a paltry $5,000, which would get her about four-and-a-half hours in the room (not including taxes and fees), which happens to have its own basketball court. We’re told that she got a “special rate.”
Meanwhile, Britney Spears is back in Vegas – this time, it seems, to work. She’s holed up at the Palms as well, in a Sky Villa in the Fantasy Tower, which also goes for $25K per night. Britney doesn’t even have to leave the hotel to lay down tracks — there’s a recording studio in the Tower.
Britney can afford it — she’s worth nine figures. But Katie Rees?
This is what I call opportunistic!
