RumorFix was there with Nicole “Coco” Austin as she sent the audience into a frenzy Monday night during her first Peepshow performance at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, and now the new Strip starlet is opening up exclusively to us about her daring new gig filling the shoes of Holly Madison’s former character, Bo Peep.
The bootylicious babe was still pumped on adrenaline from the show when we talked to her just hours after her big debut. “I was really nervous I was going to forget something. But I didn’t and I was really proud of myself. It shows that I could really take something and make something out of it in the small amount of time that I had.”
“It’s awesome! It’s like overwhelming and beyond words, honestly,” Coco tells us of earning the coveted spot in the adult burlesque show. “I just wanted to come in and be the best Little Bo Peep ever! I know they’ve had a couple before, and I was like, I want to top it all. I want to come in, I want to change the numbers, I want to dance, and I really want to make it a Vegas show. Not just a show, but a Vegas show!”
Asked how she will make Peepshow different from Holly Madison’s, Coco tells RumorFix, “I just try and be powerful as an actor. I want to be powerful, and stand out. People know that I am not a shy person whatsoever, I’m very confident in what I do. I’m not indecisive, I know what I want. But Little Bo Peep, she’s very shy. And for going from being very shy, to busting out in confidence, there’s a lot of acting involved. So I think I bring a lot to the table, people are going to be pleasantly surprised. You’re going see a whole different Coco, a side of her that you haven’t seen before.”
Everyone knows Mrs. Ice-T has one of the biggest bum’s in showbiz, and her figure is quite the opposite of what producer’s were striving for when Holly Madison starred in Peepshow. Being aware that the show pressured the already petite former Bo Peep to lose weight, Austin admits her body is totally different than Madison’s and she plans to keep it that way. “I have a completely different body type than Holly. I think they [producers] know that, so no, they haven’t come to me [about my weight]. They didn’t want me to lose my curves, and that’s a good thing to know.” The blonde bombshell reveals, “It’s a different show. They’re not trying to get the exact Holly [Madison] type. They’re trying to go in a completely different direction, and I think that’s what I was.”
The dancing doll assures us, “People came to see my booty. Not just the boob action, they want to see the booty. I know they’re coming for that. They’re not just coming to see the boobs, and I know that. I’m going to make that happen for them. Not everybody’s a boob person.”
So if you ever happen to run in to Coco, give her a big smile, because RumorFix can confirm that the Peep diva is by far one of the sweetest, most kindhearted and humble celebrities to ever walk this planet!
