Secrets of Las Vegas (1)

Las Vegas is one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S., I just moved here from California and let me tell you honey---it's different! Don't get me wrong, I actually love it here, but after living in "everything and everyone is beautiful" California, Las Vegas is proving to be not what I expected.

Let me tell you some of the secrets of Las Vegas, things that you probably won't read in any of the brochures, things that may be more mundane, things you may want to know if considering moving here, things that may surprise or at least amuse you, so keep checking back.

FIRST SECRET OF LAS VEGAS (as compared to California):

If you're a middle aged, plus-sized woman, you can have a career in Broadcasting here.

Now, if you're a twentysomething hottie you could probably give a @#% BUT if you're "not that girl anymore" you just might find it comforting.
In California, the female broadcasters all have to have a certain "look", I'm sure it's the influence of Hollywood. In Las Vegas these women are real, if you saw them in the grocery store you'd barely give them a second look. On the screen they are dressed professionally but they're not as glossy or finished, not as young, and a lot of times not as thin as their California counterparts.

HOORAH! It's no secret that as people age, their bodies change, but in Las Vegas that doesn't have to end your career in the news industry.
The slogan for Las Vegas is "what happens here, stays here", that trend of acceptance is a secret that should definitely be leaked.
