She’s one of HSN’s top sellers. And a sexy comedian to boot. Welcome to Rhonda Shear’s world, where being fabulous means taking advantage of your curves and your cackles. The bra entrepreneur actually began her career as a beauty queen and hostess of USA’s Up All Night show. She even ran (unsuccessfully) for Mayor of New Orleans at age 22.
This Saturday night, Rhonda presents her Comedy PJ Party, which is a fundraiser for the Mahaffey Theater. The evening begins with a shopping bazaar with over 20 vendors showcasing accessories and clothes—from Neiman Marcus to Spa Oceana at Loews Don CeSar Hotel. That will be followed by a couture fashion show featuring local designers. The laughter comes next with four comedians performing, including Carole Montgomery, Vicki Barbolak, Ludo Vika and Bobby Kelton—all in a slumber party environment. Attendees are encouraged to dress in their PJs for the festivities. Teddies, babydolls and slips are all welcome.
I have a feeling this is going to be a woman-centric event. Guys, listen up: This is the perfect place to pick up the ladies—especially the ones who didn’t have stellar Valentine’s plans. That is if you can endure man-hating jokes. Since three of the featured four comedians are women, I’m going to assume there will be some guy bashing going on. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
Here are the details: The shopping part of the night starts at 7 p.m., and the models hit the runway at 9 p.m. followed by the comedians. Ticket prices range from $22.50 to $69 and can be bought here. Happy Laughing!
