Actors and performers never know what their next job will be and when I got the call from Chippendales my jaw dropped as it came on the heels of TMZ calling me fat on national TV,” says Ziering.
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) April 15, 2013
Chippendales, the ultimate Las Vegas girls’ night out is about to get even hotter this summer when Ian Ziering, former “90210” heartthrob and star of television, stage and screen, changes his famous zip code to become a Las Vegas headliner. Ziering will join the acclaimed Las Vegas production of Chippendales as the celebrity guest star for four weeks only at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino (June 6th through June 30th, Thursdays through Sundays). Ziering will host and showcase some of his “Dancing with the Stars” moves in the #1 male revue in the world.
“Actors and performers never know what their next job will be and when I got the call from Chippendales my jaw dropped as it came on the heels of TMZ calling me fat on national TV,” says Ziering. “I am passionate about health and fitness so I've kept in shape, and dancing is something I've always enjoyed so I figured why not?” When Ziering ran the idea by his wife she responded, "go for it Magic Ian!” “I am so excited to be a part of this iconic worldwide organization, it's really a dream come true!” says Zieiring. “Hey TMZ, I've got two front row seats for you!”
Ziering is the latest celebrity to join an exclusive roster of guest stars at Chippendales, which includes: Joey Lawrence, Jake Pavelka (“The Bachelor”), Ronnie Magro (“Jersey Shore”) and Jeff Timmons (of the platinum-selling group 98 Degrees). For more than three decades, sinful schoolboy charm and naughty fantasy, colliding with the boy next door has been the winning combination that has solidified Chippendales as the premier birthday, divorce, and Las Vegas bachelorette party for women. In March 2013, for the second consecutive year, the production won both the Readers’ and Critics’ Choice in the annual “Best of Las Vegas” awards as “Best Male Strip Show” – adding to an already impressive collection of accolades.
