The Next Bond Girl?
Rumor has it that it's Berenice Marlohe. Here are some pics of her courtesy of Maxim.com...
Gene Simmons & Shannon Tweed, finally. Afterwards, Gene & the boys of Kiss hit the stage and played "Lick It Up"...
Holly Madison insured her breasts for $1 million dollars. Which is as good as any reason to show a picture of her in a bikini...
Vacation Tips: Death Valley
Getting There: Death Valley National Park is a five-hour drive from Southern California or 3 ½ hours from Las Vegas.
Where to Stay: Furnace Creek Resort, located in the park, offers accommodations in its historic inn (from $265 per night, furnacecreekresort.com) and the family-friendly ranch (from $135 per night). The resort has a pool, tennis courts and wireless Internet. Basic motel rooms are available near the park's western entrance at Stovepipe Wells Village (from $80 per night, escapetodeathvalley.com)
Where to Eat: The Inn at Furnace Creek offers formal dining in a nice retro atmosphere, but the food is better (and less pretentious) at the Ranch at Furnace Creek. Choices include the Wrangler Steakhouse, the 49'er Cafe and the Corkscrew Saloon. Stovepipe Wells Village has a western-style dining room, Toll Road Restaurant.
Getting Around: A city car will be fine on paved roads and a few dirt tracks, but to really explore the park a four-wheel-drive vehicle is essential. Jeep rentals are available at Farabees Jeep Rentals (from $175 per day, farabeesjeeprentals.com) across the road from Furnace Creek.
