Cleopatra’s ‘Cirque de Mardi Gras’ Draws Crowd

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Though the real Mardi Gras happened several weeks ago, that didn’t stop adult industry personality Cleopatra from throwing a “Cirque de Mardi Gras” event on Sunday night at club Vice in Hollywood.

The red carpet affair packed the intimate club with adult industry members, as well as fans and was sponsored by, Fast Forward Events, King Ryan Events, Tiger Eye Entertainment and Gunn Models.

Adult star Tommy Gunn was in attendance with lovely Ashlynn Brooke and several of the models from his new Gunn Models agency.

X-Play producer/director Jeff Mullen stopped in, and told XBIZ he has one more scene to shoot before calling it a wrap on his “Not Bewitched XXX” video, before he starts working on the much anticipated sequel for ‘70s sitcom parody “Not the Bradys XXX.”

Red Light District owner David Joseph rolled up Hollywood Blvd. in a stretch limousine, with friends including Red Light’s director of mail order sales Mike Kovacs. After several well-publicized legal struggles for the company, Joseph told XBIZ that Red Light is back on track and making plans for 2008.

Playboy Playmate Tiffany Holliday was radiant in rhinestones in the club’s VIP area. Performer Heidi Mayne thrilled the crowd by stripping down to her thong for Mardi Gras beads and then set off some party poppers to shower the dance floor crowd with a rain of glittery confetti.

Other industry personalities out on a school night: performers Lexi Love, Jaylyn Rose, Elena Heiress, Dakota Brookes, Jon Jon, Mike Hawk and industry blogger Steve Nelson.

“This is the smallest event I’m having this year and it’s already uncontrollable,” Cleopatra said. “Cirque de Mardi Gras is insane, with all the media, the fans and the breasts.”
