“The South Point wishes to bring it back all the time however it is difficult to obtain all the right people together,” she states. “It’s an event that’s hard to prepare ahead however the people in the entertainment biz understand that. We are going to do lots of roasts due to the fact that there are many people who wish to be roasted. It’s a great deal of work however it’s so much fun.”
