VIP? Bullshit, if you visit the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas I need to warn you, it may not be what you think. Especially if they ask you to check into “VIP.”
…On April 1 I decided to go to one of my favorite places in the world, Las Vegas, Nevada. For a long time I had visited Mandalay Bay going back to the early days with my “pal” Oscar De La Hoya. Over four of five years I always had a great room set up, 2 big bedrooms at both ends of a nice suite and a living room/dining room in the middle. My good friend back in those days took great care of me, Joanne Barnes, she is now retired. Bill Hornbuckle has moved to the Bellagio. It was nice then, we played and had a cabana at the pool it was what you would expect…NOT ANYMORE!
This time I called and spoke to Flavia Ernest, she is the assistant to Bill Monson, VP of the place. This guy Monson is no Hornbuckle but still you would think that someone from his office would carry a little weight, not at the Mandalay Bay. She tells me that I have not been here for almost 6 years (after this experience it maybe another six years). Harrahs in Las Vegas treated us pretty nice and I thought it would be fun to go back in time, and hang out at the Mandalay Bay…OMG, BIG MISTAKE! Flavia tells me that she will take care of me and to report to VIP check in when I arrive, good I thought…
…Well we go to the “VIP” room and it is the smallest room I have been in since staying in that little castle outside of Rome last summer. The one I called the “tomb,” it was very quiet and very small. I call the “VIP” desk and get a nice young man, Juan Gatti, he listens and understands that I am unhappy and places me on hold. Juan is trying to make a guest happy and comfortable, he asks if we could use a fold away if he can’t find a bigger room? Well I can’t, but one of the boys can I guess. After a short while here comes Mr. Shit for Brains, Brett Jones, Stupidvisor. He asks, “is everything ok?”, “is the water working?”, is my mother’s picture on the nightstand next to your bed? Then he tells me “the entire hotel is booked and there are no rooms available.” When I asked for his name he gave it to me as to say “who cares.” Brett I hope you think of me every time… …this guy in VIP is and what a great job he is doing in helping “guests” leave the casino/hotel and go someplace else. This is why, folks, all is well in Las Vegas, no rooms and high prices and Brett Jones showing guys with lines of credit the door! If this moron is a “stupidvisor” all I have to tell you America is that all is well in Las Vegas and they don’t… …BRETT JONES, I predict that after…
Funny PTI, I told we would leave and not come back, his response that’s fine. Funny PTII, I have a line of credit at this hotel and still got “yellow carpet” service. You know, stand here and…
In the course of preparing to leave I return to the VIP check-in and the wretch who checked us in was at the “oh well” stage when I asked what is the difference between Mandalay Bay VIP and the rest of the cattle, I mean guests waiting in line to get their “special” rooms. I tell her to find me another room in one of this groups other properties.
That is when I meet Mr. Mike Hejazi, he too is a supervisor but a problem-solver not a miserable “go ahead and leave” kind of guy. He even tells us, “I want you to stay at this property.“ Mike makes a few phone calls and has us moved to THEhotel, this was at one time one of the best hotels in Las Vegas. I stayed at THEhotel in the early days and it was nice, all suites, so I thought that is a good idea and we moved over to their tower. Arriving at THEhotel we go to a VIP check-in again and this time we are greeted by a young lady, Deanna. Deanna looks like she likes her job and has everything ready in a few minutes, her laugh and her pleasant demeanor made myself and the boys feel comfortable. Here is a thought, Brett Jones if ever you get canned here why not try the Tenderloin district of San Francisco, lots of “hotels” that could use your special talents.
Bottom line is this folks, I got hustled by this hotel when I contacted the VP’s office. How? They knew they were going to give me a standard room for top dollar and I guess they really did not remember me. All my old friends are gone and this new batch are not nice…except for Mr. Mike Hejazi and Deanna at VIP check-in at THEhotel.
DESPERATEEXES.com advice: avoid this place, [Mandalay Bay Hotel], at all cost, if they will screw with a guest like me, can you imagine what…
NOTE FROM ROSE:Read the rest of this article at Desperate Exes.com. Note to Brett Jones so nice to hear that Las Vegas has recovered so well from the recessions that there is no need for us to spend any money there to help the economy. I wonder if Senator Harry Reid has been told the recession is over there????

The Birth Announcement read round the world I would guess of James Nazarian born March 11, 2010!
“There was a flash of joy within the universe early Thursday morning — my son Chris and his adorable girlfriend Victoria together brought their new son James Nazarian into the world at 4:20 A.M. James is 9.9 lbs and 21 inches, and upon hearing this I was so glad that I always gave Victoria the chair at the head of our table during dinner…extra room, 9.9 POUNDS, not-so-little James came into the world at almost 10 POUNDS!! Thank god for medical technology, as what an “OUCH” factor that had to be…I am just guessing, never having given birth.
Becoming a grandfather is an incredible thing. My middle name is James and what an honor to have my grandson named after…me! They named their son after me! I am looking forward to watching James grow, and to assure that he is in the right financial place a stock portfolio will have been put together by the time you read this! After all, if James is going to be named after me he should, at the appropriate time, have a few bucks in his pocket.
I wish Victoria and Chris all the best, and they will have to remember that for the rest of their lives they are now Mom and Dad. And their focus should be to make sure their son James has all the world can offer to him, but most of all the love and caring of each other and together sharing that with James…I am sure they will do all of that as they will be reminded “once in awhile” who James’s grandfather is.
Victoria and Chris, job well done!
On a personal note, Ken and I have gotten to know Mr. Nazarian over the last two plus years via email and a few phone calls, ever since I talked his publicist into allowing Rose Speaks.com to pick up Mr. Nazarian’s coverage of the Anthony Pellicano trial. Mr. Nazarian is devoted to his two sons and if you look at pictures we put up occasionally with his articles of his cars (the Rolls and Bentley) you will see that the hedges around John’s home is 20 feet high. I think he has always been aware that in his business he has made a few enemies along the way, but I have NEVER seen a picture of his two sons anywhere. So to me, this cute James Nazarian, the grandson of John, he could not ask for a more protective grandfather.
We here at Rose Speaks wish Chris, Victoria and James a long and happy life and to remember your children grow up so fast, enjoy every day, and EXPECT advice from your dad, Chris, grandparents are put on earth to do that and I would imagine John will do that with grace, love and as fierce of protective grandfather as any grandchild can have.
I feel Ken and I at Rose Speaks joins with all of John J. Nazarian’s clients including in part the firms and lawyers of Trope and Trope, Hersh, Mannis & Bogen, LLP, Meyer, Olson, Lowy & Meyers LLP, Trope & DeCarolis, LLP, Ron Rale, Sorrell Trope, Michael Trope, Patrick Decarolis, Lisa Helfend Meyer, Gary Fishbein, Ira M. Friedman, Ron Litz, Harland Braun and Adam Braun. There is not enough room to name them all and the clients who became friends along the way including Pauley Perrette and Michelle Phillips. The clients he has represented so well they are proud to be named on the site of Nazarian and Associates. Clients including Oscar de la Hoya, Vin Diesel, Steven Bochco, and Les Moonves, and it could go on from there.
As you can see the list is so large we cannot begin to list them all, but I am willing to bet that James Nazarian’s birth is going to be celebrated in California by all who have been positively touched by the dedication, commitment, professionalism and knowledge John shows to his clients, and to the few lucky enough to call him a friend. Not to forget his one of a kind wit that can make me laugh with my fist cup of coffee.
James Nazarian is beautiful Mr. Nazarian! All of our best to you and your family.
Please keep comments on this article positive, Ken and I would so appreciate an outpouring of congratulations on this happiest of occasions.

What a way to start off the spring, with the rebirth of nature and the gift of a grandchild.
