How Heavenly is Angel Porrino? She may not be a household name – yet, but stay tuned! She is Holly Madison’s close friend, house mate, former personal assistant, and she’s since become a strong TV personality through her roles on “The Girl’s Next Door” and E! Entertainment’s “Holly’s World”.
Angel is currently filling in for Holly until April 3rd, at the Las Vegas striptease spectacular Peepshow at Planet Hollywood. Playboy recently called Peepshow “Sin City’s sexiest burlesque act”, and who can top a description like that? Check out the show for yourself and you’ll see a lot of Angel- in more ways than one(!)
We knew you’d like to know more about this 21 year old gorgeous, and talented Las Vegas native so we caught up with her as she prepared for her role as the adorable, sexy Bo Peep who searches for real love and discovers her own sexuality in the process…
Here’s our conversation:
You filled in for Holly last fall. What did you learn from that experience and are there aspects which you have changed this time around?
AP: Nothing has really changed, but my confidence goes up every show!!
What challenges are there for you performing in a production of this size? (Wardrobe changes, large amount of stage time, Keeping the “high”, etc.)
AP: I’ve had a couple of wardrobe malfunctions due to quick changes but I’ve been performing since I was two and you learn that the show must go on…you deal with it as it comes and don’t pay attention to it!
What is your favorite scene in the show?
AP: My favorite part of the show is the last two numbers – because those are the ones I get to dance the most in!!!
Do you try to mirror Holly’s creation of the role or bring a new interpretation to it?
AP: It’s hard to not mimic what you’ve seen done SO many times, but I do my absolute best to make the Bo Peep character my own! I add things here and there – dance moves, shimmies & shakes, little one liners etc…It’s always an experiment!!!
How are you doing at balancing your life right now with your beautiful little son Roman and your growing career?
AP: Being a single mom is no small task, but luckily I have my parents here in Vegas and they help me out a lot. I have Roman all day then before I go to do Peep, I drop him off with my mom for a couple of hours. My mom and Roman are close so he loves it.
What do you want your fans to know about you?
AP: There’s so much that I want people to know about me that they don’t, but I wouldn’t even know where to start. I’m just myself and I keep it real across the board. There’s no other way to be!
What would you like to tell them about Holly?
AP: Holly is hands down my best friend! She’s such a beautiful person inside and out and I don’t know what I would do without her! She’s the reason I am where I am today and I am beyond grateful! She’s my mentor, my big sister, my best friend and much more!
Where do you see yourself going from here?
AP: I see big things for myself, but it’s in God’s hands. I’m taking everything one day at a time and walking thru any doors that open up as the come to me. You’ll be seeing a lot more of me though, that I can guarantee!
