DOUG ELFMAN: Naughty, naughty girls being real bad

Johnny Weir has the best idea of the week. He wants to bring a show to Vegas called "The Bad Girls of Skating," co-starring Tonya Harding, Nicole Bobek and other naughties.

"Get 'em all out there in bustiers and fishnets," he tells me.

Weir, Olympic skater and star of the Sundance Channel's "Be Good Johnny Weir," wants the skaters to re-create their bad-girl moments in front of paying crowds.

"It's perfect for Vegas," he says. "I've gotten really close to Kelly Osbourne. I know she would like to be involved. It would be amazing."

He sees "Bad Girls" as a summer show, this year or next. As for a location, he'd like to "see who can cut me a deal," he says and laughs.

Sadly, the Vegas idea is his "secondary" priority. His first concern is to try to put together a New York winter show. He explains:

"I want Lady Gaga singing over here, and Elton John singing over there, and Cirque du Soleil hanging from chandeliers, and fashion, and Johnny, and singing! I want it to be an old-fashioned spectacular."

Weir tells me all this at Caesars over the weekend. What's his favorite thing about Vegas? The helpful "ladies" at the Chanel, Fendi and Prada stores, of course.

"You don't get more strip mall, high fashion than Vegas. I love it," he says. "In New York, you have to (taxi) everywhere to go where you want. Here, it's all right where you need it."
