All this, and time off from her Vegas show, too.

Former Girls Next Door star Holly Madison just announced on Sunday that she's going to marry baby daddy Pasquale Rotella on Aug. 15, but she may soon be a single mom for quite some time. Rotella on Monday was charged with enough crimes to put him in prison for more than 13 years.

RadarOnline says Rotella was in court in L.A. for a pretrial conference in which he was accused of using L.A. Memorial Coliseum funds to bribe city officials. He and five others who were indicted hosted raves at the Coliseum through their company, Insominiac events, the site says. Rotella is out on $1.8 million bail, but is due in court on July 29.

That's about two weeks before the wedding, Radar notes. Rotella maintains his innocence, and his lawyer claims the charges of bribery, embezzlement, conspiracy and conflict of interest are all politically motivated. At least Pasquale will get to spend Father's Day with daughter Rainbow.
