Doug Hutchinson (51) tied the knot with Courtney Alexis Stodden (16) in Sin City

WELCOME TO Kimo’s Vegas ... the Player’s edge!

LAST MONTH at the Little Chapel of Flowers in Las Vegas, 51-year-old actor Doug Hutchison (Lost, 24 and The Green Mile) married 16-year-old Courtney Alexis Stodden (aspiring singer, former Miss Teen USA competitor). Even Sin City requires minors to get their parents’ permission before allowing them to say “I Do” after the words “Till Death Do Us Part.” The groom is older than the bride’s dad, or as ABC news noted, she can’t vote and he’s eligible for AARP. The couple released a statement addressing the 35-year age difference, saying “true love can be ageless” - and a little south of wrong.

BACK IN FEBRUARY, the Venetian/Palazzo announced with much pomp and fanfare that it was getting rid of comps for all but its highest rolling customers, called “whales.” The problem with these kinds of pronouncements is that sooner or later you have to eat some blubber if you wanna fill your hotel rooms, restaurants and casino. minnows (small-kine players) across the land are reporting the return of free room offers, free play and more. check your Grazie account to see if your status has improved.

VEGAS INC. reports that Venetian/sands president and COO Michael Levin was the highest paid casino exec, bringing home $31.8 million last year.

VEGASTRIPPING.COM is speculating that the Dynamic Duo may go El Solo Lobo. The rumor is that the Palazzo brand baggage would be dropped in favor of a singular Venetian nom de plume for all four towers.
