Fantasy buildings are so last century in Las Vegas . Now the buzz is about fantasy experiences, the latest of which are tied to an MGM Resorts casino loyalty program called M life Players Club. The payoff isn’t just in coupons for dinner or hotel room deals but also in the kinds of special-access events at MGM properties that merit bragging rights -- a day of directing the songs at the Fountains of Bellagio , a cameo appearance in a Cirque du Soleil production at Aria Resort & Casino , or cooking lessons with celebrity chef Rick Moonen at Mandalay Bay .  To give travelers a taste of the new idea, MGM Resorts is simultaneously launching a sweepstakes that will accompany the Jan. 11 start of M life.

Bradley Cooper lives with his mom. Yes, you read that right. The Sexiest Man Alive in 2011 calls his mother, Gloria - this year's Oscar date - his roommate. In Details magazine's May issue, the cover boy and "The Place Beyond the Pines" star opened up about why he moved in with his mother after his father, Charles, died in 2011 following a long struggle with cancer. "We're surviving. Both of us. Let's face it: It's probably not easy for her, by the way, to be living with her son. It's life," Cooper said . "And right now, two years after my father's death, this is where we are. My family is very close, and my dad dying was brutal for all of us. It was a schism, and its aftershock has not stopped.

The way Flynn Robinson sees it, the Lakers' all-time record for consecutive victories was never seriously imperiled even as the Houston Rockets bumped off foe after foe through February and into the middle of March. "Twenty-two," Robinson says of the Rockets' streak, which was ended last week by the Boston Celtics, "is a long way from 33." Thirty-three, of course, is the remarkable number that Robinson helped the Lakers stamp into the record books during the 1971-72 season.

TV or not TV. . . . GOLDEN GIRL: Without Susan Harris, it is safe to say, NBC would be in a pickle. She created two series, "The Golden Girls" and "Empty Nest," that have helped keep the network atop the ratings. And this weekend, another of her sitcom creations, "Nurses," which is set in a hospital, joins the two established hits in its debut--giving her three NBC series each Saturday. That alone makes her a major TV power broker.

UP BLUES: Only a few gain one-name recognition: Barbra, Elvis, Sammy, the Babe. But in the world of blues, Etta means Etta James. She's the top draw at this weekend's "first annual" three-day blues festival at Dana Point's Heritage Park (OC LIVE! Page 4). . . . Since "Roll with Me, Henry" in 1954, the robust 55-year-old singer has become a blues legend. Says James: "A lot of people think the blues is depressing, but that's not the blues I'm singing. I'm singing life."
