PAMELA ANDERSON bought a two-bedroom penthouse unit (about 2,000 square feet) with views of the Strip facing north, south and east. Similar units sell for more than $2 million. Her neighbor Leonardo DiCaprio reportedly paid $1.5 million in 2004 for a 3,300-square-foot unit. I know what you’re thinking: $2 million for a condo! Consider this: The top price for a condo at the Trump International Hotel & Tower Las Vegas is $6 million.

THE BELLAGIO is home to the World Poker Tour’s Season IV finale, April 18-24. The total prize pool is estimated to reach $15 million with the winner taking home $3.5 million.

Wanna win a seat to the tourney? Visit the Bellagio Poker Room starting April 5 for satellites.

THIS WEEK we’ll be chatting with American Pop Art Icon Peter Max ... his art has been on a Boeing Jumbo Jet, a giant mural at the Winter Olympics and he has even been designated as the official artist of five Super Bowls. His creations hang in more than 100 galleries around the world and the two galleries that feature his work exclusively are in Las Vegas and Hawaii. Find out why he chose Maui for his second gallery, and what it’s like to work with everyone from athletes to presidents, Thursday morning at 9 on Sports Radio1420. Visit us online at to enter to win a personalized autographed Peter Max poster.

WE LOVE to reunite in Vegas, and the San Francisco 49ers took a play right from our book. Former 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo invited a few hundred of his closest friends and anybody who had anything to do with the five 49ers Super Bowl championships to a reunion in Vegas. The Paris Hotel & Casino was feel-in’more like the City by the Bay with Joe Montana, Steve Young, Jerry Rice, Bill Walsh, George Seifert, Carmen Policy, (ex-San Francisco mayors) Dianne Feinstein, Frank Jordan and Willie Brown in the house.

GET MORE Kimo’s Vegas in the weekend MidWeek, online at Oceanic Cable’s Around Hawaii and with Brickwood Galuteria Friday morning at 7:20 on Hawaiian105 KINE.
