LAS VEGAS – Eva Longoria (search) of "Desperate Housewives" (search) had a celebrity-laden crowd purring when she helped open a new lounge featuring the famous Pussycat Dolls (search) at Caesars Palace hotel-casino.
Armed with a horse whip, wearing knee-high leather boots and a zebra-striped mini skirt, Longoria introduced the sexy song-and-dance group to Las Vegas with a provocative meow on Saturday night. The Pussycat Dolls have long performed their cabaret-style shows around Los Angeles, and often feature celebrity guest performers.
"I've always been desperate to be a pussycat," Longoria, 30, said while prancing around a stage at the center of the lavish room. "And here I am, a bona fide, show-stopping pussycat."
The invited guests, including Dr. Dre, Andre Agassi, Steffi Graf and Mary J. Blige, lapped it up — especially when rapper Busta Rhymes jumped on stage and performed with the dancers.
The shows — which include no nudity — have long attracted Hollywood's A-list crowd.
