Angel Porrino (born May 6, 1989 in Las Vegas, Nevada) is an American television personality, actress, dancer and showgirl, best known for appearing on the E! network's reality television show Holly's World as Holly Madison's personal assistant/best friend. She is currently one of the stars of Absinthe at Caesars Palace.

Early life[edit]

Porrino grew up in Las Vegas. In her youth, she studied modern dance at Preston's Class Act Dance and Gymnastics and Dance Fx of Las Vegas until she was a freshman in high school.[1] She attended Mountain View Christian School where she was a cheerleader, played softball, and became student body president.[1][2]

Personal life[edit]

She first met Holly Madison (then one of Hugh Hefner's girlfriends) in 2007 when Porrino went to Los Angeles, California to test for Playboy, as depicted on the television show The Girls Next Door.[3] She was unsuccessful in her shoot and was not signed to become a Playmate; however, her friendship with Madison remained, and she appeared on The Girls Next Door show again in 2008, living in the Bunny House as the only girl there who was not to appear in the magazine.[3]

She and her son Roman (born in 2009)[4] now live in Madison's house in Las Vegas.[2] It was briefly mentioned in Holly's World by Porrino that she was married to Roman's father but they are now divorced.

For Porrino's 21st birthday, Madison paid for Porrino to undergo surgery in order to enlarge her breasts, reportedly up to 3 cup sizes larger.[5]

Career[edit]

For one week from September 13–19, 2010,[6] Porrino substituted for Madison as Bo Peep in the lead role of Peepshow, a production show at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino.[2][7] As a result of her guest-starring performance, the show's producers signed Porrino to a contract under which she filled in for Madison in the lead role for nine weeks during 2011.[8] Porrino returned to the lead role in Peepshow temporarily in 2012 after Madison left the show due to her pregnancy.[9]

On April 19, 2011 Porrino debuted a starring role in Spiegelworld's hit show Absinthe, a carnival burlesque themed show at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas.[10]

Porrino also appears in the music video "Bad" by The Cab.[citation needed]
