What I did this summer part 3 of 3

(Continued from previous post, day 3 of shooting in Las Vegas. If possible, I've worked longer days and gotten even less sleep. I'm teetering on delirium and my feet hurt. There's been some incredible behind the scenes drama and for blog purposes, the less said about it the better. I will say that there are now two people who have been thrown off the set and those two people should probably never step off the curb in front of my car on a dark night. Now back to our story...)

Wednesday arrives and Drake is stopping traffic outside the Palms—literally—as she shoots on the street against the custom limousine and underneath the sign on the wall of the front entrance.

“I think like the rest of us, my initial impression was we’re going to do what? With who?” Drake tells me after the shoot wraps. “Just the largeness of it had such an impact with all of us. It was on such a grand scale and we did something completely unheard of.

“To me this just shows that after all these years and the time and energy and effort that it’s taken to make Wicked a brand, that we’re getting bigger and better. We’re building this quality company that now mainstream entities want to deal with, and I think it’s such an accomplishment. I have to congratulate Steve for making this company what it is.”

Day 3 is also Alektra Blue’s individual day, and she enjoys some exposure inside the space-age-themed Moon Nightclub on the 53rd floor of The Fantasy Tower.

Price, meanwhile, says that receiving chocolate-covered strawberries and champagne in her suite on the first night had to be one of the highlights.

“My impression walking away from that shoot was, ‘Wow, who the f*¢k does this?’” she said. “Being able to shoot on the [roulette] table in the middle of the casino when everyone is playing is insane. I’ve never seen anything like it.

“Aside from some hair and makeup drama, and who doesn’t have that, to be able to shoot in the locations that we shot ... I don’t think we’ve ever done a group shot like that where all the girls were together. It’s usually three girls and three girls and they put it together later, so we’ve never shot it like that before. And for all of us to really get along and to have a good time at 1 in the morning was amazing. It was the best photo shoot I’ve ever done in my life.”

Kaylani Lei added, “I couldn’t believe our accommodations. Every single girl was there under one roof, and even to have Steve O.’s presence, I thought we all pulled together really well. I can’t friggin’ wait to see it.”

(Well Kaylani, wait no longer!)
