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.

No sign of good friend Dwyane Wade last night at Delano's birthday bash for actress Gabrielle Union, Michelle Pooch and Mark Tamis, but the Sugarhill Gang was there serenading their births with a rendition of their endless and classic Rapper's Delight. Sing it with me, ho-tel, motel, Holiday Innnnnnnnnnnnnnn...
After getting his hair conditioned in the steam room at Equinox over the weekend, Al Reynolds and wife Star Jones hit Skybar's Redroom, where they danced on the couch in the back of the house along with friends (?) Delano GM and regional manager for Morgans Hotel Group Mark Tamis and wife Amanda and Heather Boucher. Says a spy, "Star and Al very very happy, enjoying bottles of champagne." Happy bottle jobs, indeed.
Although it was odd that actress Gina Gershon was sort of dressed up as a sexy nurse at a Books and Books reading of the children's book she co-wrote with her brother Dann, detracting from Gershon's attention was none other than wacky Dave Barry, who was in the audience with his family, sporting a toilet seat around his neck that read "Sen. Craig." Thank god for Dave Barry.

The wacky comedienne is currently filming a skit at the Delano for her boyfriend Jimmy Kimmel's show. If you're in the area, check it out. It's bound to be more amusing than random Halloween stuff. Turns out Matt Damon was in the skit, too. Says a spy, "they were dancing around the Delano today, filming something."
For unknown reasons--perhaps because their best friend J-Lo is finally admitting she's preggo---the after party for Love in the Time of Cholera, starring Javier Bardem, Benjamin Bratt and John Leguizamo, has been moved from the Ridinger house to Social Miami at Sagamore. Rumors are that Bardem's gal, Penelope Cruz, will also be there, but you know how these things go, so don't hold your breath.

Designer cum distiller Roberto Cavalli let slip what we've all suspected for months now when People Mag asked him the type of clothing he designs for his celeb clients, to which he accidentally replied, "Well Jennifer Lopez, at this moment requests something very special because she is waiting for the baby. It is so complicated because every week she is getting bigger." Perhaps this slip of the tongue was due to the fact that the designer was celebrating his eponymous vodka at the time of the interview, or maybe "the baby" just Cavalli's way of signaling the IPhone to dial 1-800-Jenny--as in Craig, not Lopez. Fess up, already, J-Lo!

So don't be surprised if you see Pete Wentz hobbling onstage at the Fillmore tomorrow night--that is, if he makes it. The eyeliner loving Fall Out Boy singer revealed on his own personal FriendsorEnemies.com profile that he broke his foot during the band's performance at the Voodoo Festival in New Orleans Sunday night. Wentz even uploaded a vile close up of his swollen foot and included a note, saying, "For anyone who was at the Voodoo Fest in New Orleans, you got to see me jump around. Ended up breaking a bone that connects my shin to my foot. No shows will be cancelled. I am currently trying to get a "rocker" boot so I can have a walking cast. Currently my foot is the size of a small car. If you see me at a show, come sign my cast." Meanwhile, no sign of Ashlee Simpson icing his ankle, just his dog, Hemingway. Arf.

Page Six reported that Michael Vick has purchased an apartment in the Icon building. Then again, they also said that Dwyane Wade lives there and he doesn't. So who knows. And even if he did buy at Icon, he doesn't have much time to spend there. He's being sentenced at the end of the year on dogfighting charges.
