Sexy Marlo turned us on with laughs last night at House of Blues.

Last night’s show was a nice surprise and a heckuva funny way to cap off the weekend. Kiki Melendez and her “Hot Tamales Live” show gave us laughs all over the spectrum from chuckles to snorting outbursts. We did hit a couple of snags but overall, the show was a success.

During our interviews, I got the impression Melendez’s humor was on the PG-rated side. Nary a curse word left her mouth when we spoke but after a few seconds with her onstage, she turned into a  sassy firecracker dispelling any belief that this was a family friendly show.  She joked about coming to Dallas and hearing how “the men down here will eat anything.” She discussed her search of all the hot men in Dallas (“So we ended up in Oak Lawn at JR.s and there was wall-to-wall fine men there. I was gonna work it.”) but wondered why her sexy dancing wasn’t getting the guys’ attention. Except from the man who mistook her for being a drag queen.
