Heating Things Up with the Cast of ‘Las Vegas'
March 3, 2006

The cast of "Las Vegas" kept the Vegas vibe rolling as they hung out backstage before appearing on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."

The first hot star we caught up with was the beautiful future Mrs. Jay Mohr, Nikki Cox. "Yes, I'm newly engaged," she gushed.

So how did the funnyman sweep her off her feet? According Nikki, he simply kept her laughing. "I like a funny man," she revealed. "Everything else goes away. Cute fades and charming wears thin; but if you're funny that lasts forever."

Nikki and Jay met when he guest starred on "Las Vegas" 18 months ago. "He asked me out on the first day," Nikki recalled. "The smartest thing I ever did was say yes."

The bride-to-be also let us in on the hush-hush wedding plans. "It's going to be small. Just immediate family, close friends," she confided.

Also on set was a joking James Caan, who hammed it up for the cameras. "Hi, I'm Bobby Duval," he quipped.

Molly Sims and Josh Duhamel were huddled backstage, and they reveled how life has changed since they've become two of the hottest new stars on TV. "Everything's done for me now," Josh said. "Everything's completely changed."

Molly added, "He has like 10 assistants now. A whole posse. Before it was just Josh Duhamel. Now, it's Josh and the whole posse."

Josh and writer-creator Gary Scott Thompson were also buzzing about Molly's $30 million diamond studded bikini she sported for Sports Illustrated.

"She looks amazing," Josh said.
