Holly Gives You The Scoop

If anyone knows Las Vegas, it’s Holly Madison. In fact, the PEEPSHOW star, who is filming her second season of the E! reality series Holly’s World all over town, is close to releasing a book in which she reveals the city’s hidden gems that most vacationers tend to overlook. Expect to read about two of her favorite foods: chicken fingers from the Peppermill and the Tiger Roll from KOI inside Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. Here, she shares more about herself and the city.

What do you like best about living in Las Vegas?
I like the small-town feel with big-city attractions.

What “stays in Vegas” when you leave?
Nothing. I’m not private at all.

What are you most scared of?
I’m not scared of anything. Not even failure.

What one thing do you wish people knew about you?
That I’m a hard worker. Just because I spent a few years at the Playboy Mansion doesn’t mean I’m spoiled. I never was.

What would you like them to forget?
I’d like people to forget the last time I was on Larry King Live.

What word describes you best?
Tenacious.

Who was your favorite celebrity as a child?
Madonna.

What’s playing on your iPod?
Neon Trees.

What’s your food weakness?
The nachos from Planet Dailies. They are among the best in town. I like mine with chili.

What’s your favorite food to cure a hangover?
A sandwich from Earl of Sandwich. My favorites are the Ham ‘n’ Swiss and the Italian.

When you order from the room service menu at 3 a.m., what do you get?
Grilled cheese and fries, even if it’s not on the menu. They have bread and they have cheese. I know they can make it.
