What Happens in Vegas… – 21. March, 2010
While most of us were obsessed with Super Bowl weekend, Nancy played Texas Hold ‘Em with celebrities including Lou Diamond Phillips, Robert Iler (The Sopranos), Jesse Metcalfe (Desperate Housewives), Shaun Sipes (Melrose Place), Nicholas Gonzalez (Mental), Playboy Playmates Sara Underwood, Jessica Burciaga and Jessa Lynn Hinton, Dennis Haskins (Saved by the Bell), Cheryl Hines (Curb your Enthusiasm), Tiffany Michelle and Maria Ho (The Amazing Race) and more. The occasion was the Trash Talk Championship of the World poker tournament benefiting the Sharon Osbourne Colon Cancer Program at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. It took place at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
Cartwright Entertainment was one of the sponsors of the no limit Hold ‘Em charity poker tournament, which raised more than $30,000 for the Colon Cancer Program. Nancy played well but Trishelle Cannatella of Real World Las Vegas was the deserving champion.
