Wayne Newton wants to turn Home into Museum

Wayne Newton has been making some headlines over the past couple of days.

First it was reported by TMZ that he had his abandoned jet shipped to his house in Las Vegas and it is now being displayed on his lawn. Apparently the plane fell into disrepair a while back when Newton couldn't afford maintenance. The aircraft sat at the Detroit airport until the powers that be finally made him remove it.

Secondly it looks like Wayne is trying to convert his famous Casa de Shenandoah estate into a tourist attraction. He held a meeting with his neighbors who were reportedly not happy with the possibility. Since the estate is in a residential area, Newton has to file paperwork to get a special use permit which he will likely do soon. The airplane story makes more sense now - he could use the plane as part of the attraction for tourists to check out.
