You could spot Jessica Gomes in Vegas this week

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

PHOTO OP ... the Sports Illustrated swimsuit models will be making public appearances in Las Vegas. In addition to seeing the SI Beach Babies on the fuselage of Southwest Airlines’ Boeing 737-700, they’ll be making some appearances around town Feb. 12. Jessica Gomes made her debut in last year’s issue (Who knew black paint could be considered a swimsuit?), and the smart money has the Australia-born (Singaporean, Chinese and Portuguese) super model as the 45th cover girl.

Loren Lum: lucky guy

“THANK YOU, and God bless you” are the last words a Las Vegas bank robber says to the tellers before making his withdrawal.

Problem is, he was the winner of the Hawaiian 105 KINE, Oceanic Cable, Vacations Hawaii BJ Penn Flyaway ... Lucky for him, friends told him they heard his name on the radio!

It’s over for Elaine and Steve Wynn

FAMILY AFFAIR ... The first couple of Las Vegas, Steve and Elaine Wynn, are splitting up. She’s staying in the Wynn penthouse and he’s moving to the Wynn Villa ... She’s a director, he’s the CEO, and her nephew Andrew Pascal is president of their hotels (should make for some tense meetings). You don’t suppose it’s because she supported Obama and he was for McCain?
