Justin Bieber was seen checking in Tuesday The Villa Casa Casuarina (formerly the Versace Mansion) before heading to WALL where he gave a surprise performance. Bieber left that club with fifty--yep, 50 people-- and brought them back with him, partying until 8 a.m. Wednesday. The Biebs lounged it off all day at the pool before heading to sceney steakhouse Prime 112 for lunch around 3:30 p.m. A waiter said Bieber "seemed to be intoxicated, most likely from the night before." Ya think? Following lunch he went back to Casa Casuarina to nap before hitting LIV Nightclub, where he showed up just after midnight and spent the majority of the evening singing along to his songs and dancing to them from the DJ booth.

Jesse Metcalfe, the guy who plays the object of many of a horny housewives' desire on the absurd ABC hit Desperate Housewives, is heading to Miami on February 11 to host crobar's Heartbreaker's Ball. According to the talking heads at crobar, Metcalfe will do a meet and greet with 50 lucky ladies--what, no men? We wonder if he'll also show up at the big Ocean Drive Magazine anniversary party at an undisclosed location. Stay tuned.
To win a chance to meet Metcalfe and see if he's all that, call (305)672-8084 by 5pm on Friday, February 10th. Winners will be called Friday night after 5pm. The winners will also be entered to win a Tiffany necklace, courtesy of Crobar. But that's not all! Metcalfe will even fasten the necklace on the lucky winner. Or himself, if he's so inclined. You never know.
By now everyone's heard how appalling Motley Crue singer Vince Neil's
debacle performance was at the big Bay Point Schools fundraiser at the Ritz Carlton South Beach Saturday night. Adhering to the unspoken rule of "when all else fails and you forget your own lyrics, drop the F bomb," Neil was, well, the poster child for aging rockstars gone wrong. But despite the fact that Neil probably couldn't remember what year it was--judging by his hair, he'd say it was, say, 86--he was coherent enough to scam a huge deal off a starstruck Ritz employee, whom he bamboozled into getting him a $75 a night employee rate. When the Ritz found out, Neil was told he was never welcome back to the property, and the staffer who hooked him up saying Neil was her step brother, was "promoted" to another property in Pasadena, CA.

If anyone read Page Six's blind item today (Jan. 30) about an actor addicted to heroin and crystal meth, we'd be willing to bet money that it's Jonathan Rhys Meyers. He looked like he was on his death bed at the Golden Globes.
Overheard at dinner the other night at an undisclosed location, "My pot dealer just told me he sold my weed to Bob Marley's kids."
Mansion became the host site of a moron convention Saturday night when Kimberley Stewart, Rod's daughter, showed up sporting a black lace number worthy of a soft core porn flick on Showtime. Despite her aspirations for an acting career, she failed her first lesson - knowing big wig producers' names. Stewart continuously introduced friends to the prolific producer Jerry Bruckheimer, who was partying at the table next to hers, as Michael Bay, another well known producer who is 20 years Bruckheimer's junior...Laughing instead of correcting her, Bruckheimer went right along with the

Sugo at the Sanctuary was on fire Friday night---literally--as Bobby Brown and two bodyguards showed up for dinner. Brown couldn't get enough of his smokes--cigarettes, that is--and was seen going outside every few minutes to light up. To his credit, he was polite enough to ask if he could smoke inside, which he couldn't. It was not his prerogative and clearly, either was wife Whitney, who was conspicuously or not so conspicously absent. When asked where Whitney was, a cursory, "In Connecticut with the kids," was offered while Brown's goon was busy trying to make a hot blonde an offer she couldn't refuse if she'd only git wit Bobby. We've heard so much about how bad Whitney is these days, but if you'd have been there last night, you could possibly understand what has driven her to be that way. Brown's eyes were a crimson red, he was bloated and barely able to keep his jaw from knocking. It was a sad, sad sight, but if Being Bobby Brown isn't enough, we'd like to suggest that a producer offer him the role of Mush Mouth in the sequel to the Fat Albert flick.
Spotted perusing the aisles of Wild Oats on South Beach the other day: Anna Kournikova. While we asked our spotter if he noticed whether or not she had a homeopathic pregnancy test in her basket, the spotter was too busy staring at another kind of basket, if you know what we mean.

Although it feels like a year ago since our nocturnal bastille was stormed by a slew of celebrities for New Year's Eve, some news takes a while to finally slip out. And if it was just a tawdry little tidbit on Lindsay Lohan's lack of manners or trouble breathing, we'd ignore it, but this one's just too good.
We were told that Leonardo DiCaprio and his posse---if you recall, he put his posse on the shelf for a while when he was dating Giselle Bundchen---skipped out on a whopping $20,000 bar tab at the Setai, not even leaving a )#*$)#( tip! Can you believe that? We can. Drinks at that place are exorbitant. But still. If that's true, we don't know who's dumber--the people who chugged and screwed, or the people who allowed that to happen.

Another infamous Simpson stepped out on the town last night---OJ Simpson. The Juice was spotted at The Forge holding court at a round table with ladies of the night. Er, that is, ladies who go out at night and think it's cool to be seen in public with OJ. We're dying to know if all the steak knives were returned to the kitchen.
