WELCOME to Kimo’s Vegas ... The Players Edge!

Katie Holmes & Tom Cruise
Katie Holmes & Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes were at the Cirque du Soleil Beatle’s Love show celebrating (his mom) Mary Lee‘s 70th birthday with keiki’s Connor and Isabelle. Tom’s sister Catherine was also there as the cast sang Happy Birthday backstage. Baby Suri we’re told stayed at home.

You’ve probably heard of bronzed baby shoes and maybe even have a pair from Mom and Dad. Tom & Katie went one step further and bronzed baby Suri Cruise‘s first ... poop (no kidding)! The bronzed kukai was on display at Capla Kesting Fine Art in Brooklyn (really). Suri’s first you know what sold on eBay for $10,000 and all the proceeds went to the March of Dimes. Disappointed you missed out on the bidding? Look for limited edition plaster replicas from artist Daniel Edwards. You can see a picture of the $10,000 baby poo at

Barry Manilow returns to the legendary Hilton Theater on Nov. 8 after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on both of his hips to repair torn labrum (cartilage). The guy who writes the songs will be on QVC LIVE on Oct. 21.

Imagine the surprise of the Las Vegas Zoo officials who came to work to find a mountain lion outside the main gate! Authorities believe the cub was a household pet that was abandoned because it got too big. The zoo has taken in the malnourished lion and plans to make him the star of a new exhibit.

Pink, Carey Hart

Trouble in the desert? John Huntington and motocross superstar Carey Hart from the tat shop in the Palms that’s featured on the A&E reality show Inked are in litigation with ... each other. Apparently Huntington sold 48 percent of his ownership back to Hart in January 2005 and has only received one payment since.

The first Playboy Club in 25 years opens next month at the Palms Casino Resort Fantasy Tower. The experience includes a store, casino and nightclub called Moon (that has a retractable roof). With accoutrements like $275,000 black-crystal chandeliers and $300-per-square-foot alligator skin wall coverings, the club’s capacity is limited to 500.

If that’s not exclusive enough for you, check into the Hugh Hefner Sky Villa, a two-story, 9,000-square-foot suite equipped with a media room, gym, sauna, poker table, outdoor terrace, outdoor Jacuzzi and 8-foot round, rotating beds. A night in Hef’s place will set you back $40,000 ... like batteries, bunnies are not included.

Jamie Foxx
Jamie Foxx

The new Vegas bling: Actor Jamie Foxx, TV star/model Paris Hilton, and NBA champion Shaquille O’Neal are a few of the big names who are “Blinging”. Ya gotta have a big name and an even bigger wallet for this H2O. At over $125 a pop and that’s for one 750 ml acid frosted glass bottle with a cork stopper and hand applied Swarovski crystals. It’s the most lavish bottled water in the world.

At the Main Street Grace T. of Kapaa won $4,000 on a 10-cent VP machine ... Barbara Yee of Kaneohe, Jamie Foxx won $4,000 at the Cal ... The most popular guy in Hilo this week is John Nalimu, who won $20,000 on a $1 Fremont slot machine.
