She's Going To Eat WHAT?
Surprise: The man who directed Holly Madison in "Peepshow" didn't know what she's planning to do with her placenta.
A longtime pal of Holly Madison hadn’t heard the mommy-to-be is planning to, well, ingest her own placenta.
“No… really?,” asked Jerry Mitchell, who directed Madison in the Las Vegas revue Peepshow until she announced her pregnancy last October.
Yes, Jerry. Really.
“Is this the new thing?” he continued. “Well, there you go.”
Madison announced her afterbirth plans just this week on her Celebuzz blog.
“This might sound gross, but I’m totally planning on having my placenta turned into pills I can take after giving birth," she wrote. “I heard it helps women recover faster and I want to recover as quickly as I can!"
Despite his surprise at Holly’s declaration, the man who created, directed and choreographed Peepshow was certain in his praise for the former Girl Next Door.
“Holly was sensational, and she was an amazing asset to Peepshow,” he told Celebuzz. “I’ll do anything with [her.]”Coco Austin, who took over Peepshow’s starring role in December.
What does Mitchell think of Ice-T’s famously voluptuous other half?
“It was quite a shock and surprise – I didn’t know Coco could dance a step,” he said. “And I came into the room one day and she did a pirouette and landed in a split, and I went, 'That’s going in the show.'”
Kind of worth the price of admission, right?
Preview performances begin on March 3, with an official opening night set for April 4.
