Not since Elizabeth Berkley schemed and skanked her way through the movie Showgirls, has there been a Las Vegas cabaret dancer with the rising fame of Holly Madison. The former Playboy magazine model and #1(ish) girlfriend of Hugh Hefner, Ms. Madison got her first taste of mainstream fame as a star of the hit reality TV show “Girls Next Door”. And now she’ll be the star, and producer, of her own show called “Planet Holly”.

Since it’s just been announced, we don’t yet know if Planet Holly will take place amid the exciting casinos and stages of her home-base Las Vegas, or back in her L.A. haunts. But we do know she’s equally at home in both places. She’s currently the headline showgirl in the Vegas burlesque act Peepshow, and she was hangin’ with Hef at the Playboy Mansion in L.A. while starring in Girls Next Door.

She’s not saying much about her new reality show, except that it will be “all good-natured and not mean like other reality shows”. She promises it will be inspirational and empowering for young girls. Which is pretty good considering her main claims to fame so far are dating the elderly Hugh Hefner, and taking off her top on-stage and in magazines. And, improbably, she even compares her new project to the Mary Tyler Moore Show. It starts filming on October 12th, so we won’t have long to wait to see what it’s really all about.
