Australian entertainment and nightclub fans, and all you celebrity watchers out there… It’s time for yet another showbiz update.

The Star’s new nightclub Marquee in "Sin City" Sydney, Australia tonight held their grand opening last night and the ultimate party girl herself – Paris Hilton, along with boyfriend DJ Afrojack, and a bush tucker bag of friends and associates including Ashlee Simpson, Nick Lachey, Kellan Lutz, Abbie Cornish and LMFAO’s Redfoo helped get the party started on the red (purple) carpet. By the way, the colour purple is supposed to attract money we understand, and it was working for Ms Hilton.

The gamble to sign up Paris and friends appears to have paid off, as far as attracting international headlines, but only time will tell what it does to the bottom line of The Star (once known as Star City Casino).

The Australian contingent of celebs who attended included Laura Dundovic, Alex Dimitriades, Glenn and Sara McGrath, Alex Perry, Nikki Phillips, Didier Cohen, April Rose Pengilly, Tim Commandeur, Laura Cstortan and Chris Joannou.

Marquee is understood to have snatched big dollars tonight, along with some positive press, but upping the ante in star power. Just how much it cost The Star to bring in Ms Hilton is anyone’s guess but a well known media agency in Sydney estimated "between ,000 to 0,000 for Ms Hilton and friends", but don’t ever expect to find out the real figure as agents and legal eagles will be guarding that information from falling into the media and public domain.

The official VIP launch party featured DJ sets from The Black Eye Peas, and Afrojack, with boat loads of celebs.

The 20,000 square foot nightclub occupies the entire top tier of The Star’s new Pirrama Road harbour side entrance. It enjoys a 1,200 people capacity and is aiming to fill up the venue with the right sort of customers. It’s understood that there’s three separate spaces within the one venue, and there was something for everyone’s mood and taste.

The Main Room sports a 30-foot projection stage with an LED DJ booth and two funky dance floors, while another section entitled ‘Boom Box’ has an outdoor patio and DJ booth. For those guests who are looking for a bit more intimacy… and we know your out there boys and girls, there’s a "library-style" lounge room along with fireplace, where you might want to get all cosy with your best friends.

The new sexy nightclub is a joint effort between The Star and Tao Group, which operates very successful nightclubs in the United States including LAVO in New York and Las Vegas, TAO Las Vegas and Marquee Nightclub and Dayclub at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.

We think its a pretty safe bet that you and yours will have fun (and spend a few dollars) at The Star’s Marquee, so why not give them a go and tell us all about your experience.

It’s all just another move in the Australian casino and entertainment wars, with a good dash of tourism biz factored in, and hopefully the public and Sydney benefit.

Competitor of sorts, Crown Limited, is following the progress of Sydney based ‘The Star’ closely, and the two gaming companies fight for the entertainment and gambling dollar, with big name celebs and casino "whales" being the most sought after patrons.

The Star will no doubt be hosting more celeb filled parties, but its unclear when Ms Hilton is returning to party (and pick up another payday). No word yet if she’s got a whole floor to herself to sleep in and party (like Leonardo DiCaprio did on his previous down under Australian visits), but we highly suspect so.

Will you be on ‘The List’ any time soon at Marquee? Well, dress the part, work hard, and play harder, and you may soon be partying along with some of the world’s hottest socialites.

If your into the best nightlife that Sydney has to offer you owe it to yourself to take the gamble and get on over to Marquee all you cool cats out there.

Thank you to everyone who helped make the event a hot success, and Paris – we hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in Australia.

Playboy Business: Kendra Wilkinson Reality In Sydney at Ivy

She’s known for a few things, mainly Playboy, The Playboy Mansion, and all that, but now she’s got a Reality TV show, and us Australians are going to find out all about it.

The 26-year-old model – actor – entrepreneur has been spotted sight seeing in Sydney, while getting ready to promote her self titled reality TV show, Kendra.

The blonde media heat seeker, always very well-known for being one of Hugh Hefner’s lucky three girlfriends had a whale of a time enjoying a boat cruise around Sydney Harbour with her mum, while taking photos. Yes, her photo was also taken.

Kendra arrived in Down Under on 13th October and snatched quite a few cheers and wolf whistle’s from the Sydney Airport staff. The walk past is understood to have lifted the striking workers spirits. Naughty, naughty.

The glamour model did tonight (or at least the first part of it) at the exclusive Sydney night spot, The Ivy.

Like many a celeb, she’s quite the fan of Twitter, yesterday tweeting: ‘Wow I’m having the best time in Sydney!! Australia is amazing! Can’t wait to show you guys my pics from my trip!’

Kendra’s reality TV show focuses mainly on her life after leaving the famous Playboy Mansion and getting engaged to then Philadelphia Eagles receiver, Hank Baskett. Kendra is understood to enjoy ball sports.

The star’s virgin appearance on TV was via the TV series ‘The Girls Next Door’, which followed the lives of Playboy Hefner’s, then-girlfriends: Kendra, Holly Madison, and Bridget Marquardt.

Before you could say Playboy Bunny, Kendra moved out of the Playboy Mansion in 2009 after meeting future husband Hank, and began filming her Kendra.

American audiences were into the show and Kendra is praying that Australian audiences will feel the same way too. Well, they are bound to feel something, so hopefully its good.

The former Dancing With The Stars contestant married Hank in June 2009, and their boy Hank IV was born in December of that year. In case you were wondering, the star’s family have not joined her on her latest press trip.

Kendra looked to be enjoying herself at The Ivy tonight, and it sure looks like she’s into the Australian mantra of "Work hard, play harder."

The looker has told Australian press: "The mansion will always be a part of my life and I’m very appreciative of that. Especially Hef. He is like family. So when the time comes I will open up to my son about my days there and the stuff I went through," she said.

"I knew what I wanted. It was always to have a family".

"No one really expected that of me. I went away that no one thought I would go. Everyone thought I was the crazy party girl but I did what everyone thought I wouldn’t do and made a huge turn-around in my life. I always wanted to be a mother and a wife.

"I lived at the mansion from the age of 18 to 21 and once I had that experience and that whole party thing out of my system I was really ready to settle down."

Australian news hounds are expected to continue to track her every movement, and Kendra plays along in the game, making sure everyone knows about her new upcoming Reality TV show.

Kendra: 9.30pm from October 18, only on E!
