WELCOME TO to Kimo’s Vegas ... The Player’s Edge!

TOPLESS SPICE ... Last week we learned of Planet Hollywood’s plans to replace Stomp! with Peepshow ... This week we get the names of the two small-screen stars who’ll be transformed into Vegas burlesque queens: Melanie Brown (Scary Spice and Dancing with the Stars) and Kelly Monaco (General Hospital) will be scantily but fully clad in the show that opens March 30. Look for other B-list celebs to front the 20 half-naked dancers in the months to come.

THE DOYLE BRUNSON Five Diamond World Poker Classic is happening Friday through Dec. 19 in the Bellagio’s poker room. There are 10 no limit hold ‘em tournaments, seven super satellites and a Seniors’ No Limit contest with entry fees varying from $1,500 to $5,000. The grand champion gets the first-place prize money and a $25,000 seat in the April 2009 WPT World Championship at Bellagio.

THE 10 MILLION DOLLAR MAN ... Jamie Gold, the first guy to win $10 million in tournament poker, was spocked at the Rick’s Cabaret Las Vegas (is that two pair or four of a kind?). Old-timers (anyone who’s been to Vegas since September 2008) will remember when this place was called Scores. The club is more than 25,000 square feet, open 24/7 and features more than 500 dancers. Last month’s issue of Forbes Magazine ranked it 87th of the top 200 small companies.

“THIS IS NOT A JOKE”... That’s what the guy said when he handed the cashier at the Fitz’s main cage a note asking for some kala. With $ 5,000 of the casino’s money, he casually walked out of the casino and hopped into a cab.

TICKETS ARE ON SALE NOW to see the guy who won a million bucks on America’s Got Talent. Comedian-ventriloquist Terry Fator opens in a showroom bearing his name on Saint Valentine’s Day next year.

BROTHER, CAN YOU spare a billion? The owners of the Venetian and the Palazzo (Las Vegas Sands Corp.) raised more than $2 billion in capital with a stock offering that many experts believed would fail. The company’s largest stockholder (the Adleson family) bought $525 million on top of the $475 it invested two months ago ... At least they’re not asking Congress to bail ‘em out.
