Dennis Rodman was seen holding court Wednesday night at the bar at Joe's Stone Crab, where our source tells us he was "slapping everyone on their back as hard as he could, screaming in a loud voice, totally wasted." After that, not even a North Korean dictator could command the beleaguered baller a table as he was overheard telling his group--a male friend and his parents--they'd have to leave and go to Prime 112 instead, saying he can always get a table there. Police approached and Rodman was overheard apologizing, saying he understood, whispering to the cop that he was "very sorry and respected the decision to kick him out." Was quite the scene, says our source, who says "he looked truly remorseful." Meanwhile, over at Prime 112, Rodman ended up happily nestled at an outdoor table on the restaurant's terrace and, at one point, smoking a cigar inside. "He's such a mess," said our Prime mole. And all was well again in his world. Toto, I have a feeling we're not in Pyongyang anymore.

Like Stuart Sutcliffe, the so-called Fifth Beatle, or that singer that dropped out of Destiny's Child, or even Brian Dunkleman of American Idol's debut season, Dennis Rodman, pictured here in his Victoria's Secret finest at this morning's Aventura Marketing Council breakfast at the Fairmont Turnberry Isle resort, could very well be the Real Housewife of Miami that never was. As for what the ex-baller was doing at such a breakfast, Rodman, we're told, got all dolled up for a stint on a sports-related panel moderated by former Miami Dolphins player Kim Bokamper and featuring NFL alumni Terry Kirby, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brooks Foster and Dolphins cornerback Nolan Carroll .

Who can forget Tom Cruise (and wifebot Katie Holmes) boogeying down in the front row of the J-Lo concert during the Super Bowl a few years ago? Or that night the Cruises headed over to the unfortunately named, now defunct night spot Snatch? For those holding on to those memories, new ones may be available when Cruise heads down south next month to film the big screen version of the hit Broadway musical Rock of Ages, (shameless name drop alert!) whose producer Scott Prisand incidentally happens to be an old a still very youthful high school chum and fellow Model UN delegate student, of course. Thing is, if you want to stalk, you may have to schlep as the movie, says the Sun Sentinel, will be filming entirely in the Fort Lauderdale area. FLL, it seems, best resembles Venice Beach, CA, where ROA is set. They may be right, though we think the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk would be the best location. Anyway, joining Cruise in FLL are castmates Alec Baldwin, Paul Giamatti, Julianne Hough and Mary J. Blige. While the cast may indeed pop down to Miami during the two month shoot for a little R&R, we'll be surprised if Baldwin does. At a Hamptons Film Festival party a few years ago, the 30 Rock star told us unabashedly that he was no fan of the Magic City. Perhaps he's just holding a grudge over the reviews for his 1990 flick Miami Blues?
