Westgate Las Vegas CEO David Siegel was first to his feet Sunday night to lead the midnight standing ovation for dancer Jennifer Romas and the cast of her new adult burlesque “Sexxy” at his hotel.

“Bravo,” he told me. “She pulled off a great show against all the odds and in the shortest amount of time. I don’t think I’ve ever met such a passionate, hard-working performer in my life.

“I had complete faith in her, and she proved it. She’s also a really nice person who deserves the greatest of successes.”

David told me not only will he move her 11 p.m. show closer to primetime, but he also is having her create the cheerleaders’ choreography for his Orlando Predators Arena Football League team he owns in Florida. “You’ll see them here in Las Vegas when they play against Vince Neil’s Las Vegas Outlaws,” he laughed.

Jennifer wowed and dazzled the first-night audience with her amazing routines on, in and around a bathtub and on a stripper pole. “She’s the best dancer in Las Vegas, and this new show is going to get Best in Las Vegas,” one audience member told me.

Jeff Antalik added: “The best pole dance and bathtub routine ever.” Our preview of “Sexxy” with two photo galleries of rehearsals from Tom Donoghue was posted Sunday.

The first-night audience included “Purple Reign” Prince tribute artist Jason Tenner (Jennifer also stars in “Purple Reign”), “Rock of Ages” at the Venetian star Mark Shunock, Planet Hollywood headliner magician Murray Sawchuck, Zowie Bowie’s Chris Phillips with Lydia Ansel and two other beauties from the electric violin group Bella Electric Strings.
