A newly brunette Lance Bass and boyfriend(?) Narcisso Rodriguez were also seen at Lincoln Road's new gay bar Halo on Friday around 1 am. According to our spy, he walked in with an entourage of Miami's "finest velvet mafia." Once inside, the staff escorted Bass to the back bar where they sectioned off a banquet with velvet rope. "Lance hung out there, slouching down, at one point almost laying down in an attempt not to be looked at," says our unimpressed spy. "He didn't make eye contact with anyone, as if anyone really cared. Everyone was asking, 'who's the slouch on the couch? Lance who?'" That said, Bass's companion, Rodriguez was said to be very nice and friendly. The group left at 1:27 am.

On Friday night at Mansion, Annabelle Jones, NYC deb and sister of Mansion owner Roman Jones, celebrated her 21st birthday. Also there, Eve and Scott Storch. On Saturday, Tommy Lee DJ-ed Michael Capponi's Saturday night soiree. According to spies, Lee was sipping Cristal straight out of the bottle while stripping off clothes until he was typically shirtless at the turntables where he spun until 3:30am.
Seen at Social Miami at Sagamore over the weekend: Lance Bass (here for a book signing) and designer Narcisso Rodriguez. Tommy Lee was also there, conveniently during the Dead Ringers Halloween party. People thought it was just a random nobody dressed as the Motley Crue Man.

A late tidbit on Shaq: he was spotted eating outside Brasserie on Brickell Key last Wednesday. He was with a few men and later on a "petite woman" joined them. Most likely Shaunie, but some witnesses there said it definitely wasn't her. That said, Shaq looked rough. "He was sporting a scraggly, unkept beard. Poor guy couldn't eat lunch in peace." Guess the beard didn't really do much to disguise him, huh?

Last night at Prime 112: Bill Clinton dining in the private room with a party of 20. At the same time, Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen walked in. Brady was taken to meet Clinton, but we're sure he'd have rather rubbed
up against elbows with Gisele, who remained at her table. Clinton introduced Brady to his group as "the best quarterback in the world." Also in the house: Reggie Bush and Fat Joe.
Supermodel Kristy Hinze was at the birthday party of her billionaire boyfriend, Netscape founder turned Miami developer Jim Clark (who pissed some people off with the end result of Blue and Marina Blue downtown), this past weekend in his Setai penthouse. Known as the Aussie angel, Hinze was at the center of Clark's $158 million divorce in 2006.
Nick Cannon hit the turntables as part of his MySpace music tour Friday night at Prive. He seems to have bounced back from his recently broken-off engagement with Victoria's Secret beauty Selita Ebanks quite quickly. Says our spy, "He arrived and departed hand-in-hand with the same mystery lady - a leggy beauty who looked a lot like Selita. She sat tableside as Nick spun for more than two hours, making eyes with him all night."
A very reliable and somewhat sober source alerted us to the possible presence of Keith Richards at Club Deuce on Friday night. We have seen a cell phone picture and can't exactly tell if it's him or that Richards imposter who goes around town pretending to be the Rolling Stone-r. If anyone has actually seen the real Keith Richards around town over the weekend, please let us know. If not, we must stop the imposter from exploiting the myopic. Or at least get him booked on that celeb lookalike show. This just in: We spoke to the Mac of Mac's Club Deuce and he tells us it was, indeed Richards. "A friend and neighbor of mine is from England and he's friends with Keith Richards. He brought him in." It was him, indeed!
While Alonzo Mourning and wife Tracy were busy having a romantic dinner a deux at Nobu Friday night, a few tables away, giggling like a sorority girl was none other than Anna Kournikova, in a black mini dress and animal print Christian Louboutins (which we think she bought in Neiman Marcus Bal Harbour a month or so ago when our spy sat next to her and admired her sizeable soles). Kournikova was with girlfriends and a body guard.
