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.

Caption this: Mitt Romney orders a veggie burger and spends $52.72 (plus tip) at BurgerFi in Delray Beach
On Sunday night, Mitt Romney, wife Ann, one of their 18 sons (Craig), his wife and two kids, had dinner at Delray Beach's popular, upscale fast food chain BurgerFi, which stands for a non-word that perhaps Romney himself would utter in a debate: Burgerfication. While there, Romney ordered a VegeFi Burger Green Style made of quinoa and wrapped in lettuce. The Republican presidential candiate was staying across the street at the Delray Beach Marriott. For those who care about these things, here's Romney's entire order:
- 1 VegeFi Burger
- 2 Single Cheeseburger
- 1 Single Burger
- 1 VegeFi Burger Green Style
- 1 Cheeseburger
- 1 Regular Fries
- 1 Hand Spun Malt Shake
- 1 Hand Spun Shake
- 2 Dasani
Total: $52.72. He paid. And he left a tip.

Although accused fetal murderer and former Miami restaurateur Joshua Woodward was unable to get a discount on his bail because the judge deemed him a flight risk, he did post bond (typically 10%) on the $4 million needed to get him out--for now. Prosecutors claim he pulled a Casey Anthony, searching the internet for sinister ways to end his girlfriend's pregnancy. His attorneys cry BS. Woodward, often seen lounging at Miami Beach's members only Soho Beach House, was most recently seen in a blue prison jumpsuit before the bond was posted. No word on his whereabouts or those of Ocean Drive editor and newlywed Suzy Buckley, who, despite ending her relationship with Woodward after his first arrest back in 2009, ended up marrying him legally in Miami in August 2012.

The ex-husband of erstwhile Real Housewives of Miami cast member Alexia Echevarria was arrested on September 13 in Miami Dade County for probation violation, according to JailBase.com. Pedro Luis Rosello was convicted of cocaine smuggling in 1992 and sentenced to 24 years in federal prison, but released after serving just four and a half years. He was arrested again in 2007 for sexual battery on a minor and sentenced to 12 years on the recently violated probation. Rosello is the father of Echevarria's son Peter, who is being investigated by Miami Beach police for punching a homeless man in the groin and then posting the video on his Facebook page. Reality TV exposure has not been kind to Echevarria, who has spent the past year focusing on the recovery of her younger son Frankie (also Rosello's), who suffered devastating injuries after a 2011 car accident.

Whereas credible celebs go on promotional tours for their upcoming releases, the boldfacers clinging to the lower rungs on the fame ladder just release their own sex tapes and then futilely feign shock. Such may or may not be the case with Hulk Hogan, whose gross, grainy, grunty video was leaked this past week, ironically (or not so) on the same day that he filmed this not nearly as gross, grainy or grunty promotional video for Miami Beach's flashy LIV nightclub featuring Madonna's favorite DJ, Cedric Gervais.
The video, part of a series of spoofy SportsCenteresque spots which have previously starred the likes of Lil' Jon and Laidback Luke, among others, was shot by 5th & Ocean Productions, the same company that owns the nightlife channel known as A3 Network, and co-created by LIV's David Grutman. It also stars Hogan's son, Nick, who apparently now lives somewhere on Brickell Ave.
"The timing was a total coincidence," says the video's producer/director Buster Cox, who says the sex tape was leaked a few hours after the LIV shoot wrapped. When it comes to D-list celebs and sex tapes, there are no coincidences.

Looks like The Real Housewives of Miami audience is shrinking faster than the post partum waistline of a bona fide Hollywood celebrity. Last night's 9 p.m. numbers were a dismal 847,000, dropping a whopping 120,000 viewers from the previous week's 967,000. This, despite the TMZification of some of the cast members (see: Joanna "I'm Not a Hooker" Krupa and Alexia Echevarria's son's heinous, criminal behavior), which failed to lure in viewers. Unlike previous weeks in which Bravo tries to catch a later crowd, there was no prime time repeat last night.
Those numbers are, again, worse than the lowest rated episode of the DC edition of the Bravo franchise (1.1 million), which was eventually canceled. Though no one offical is saying anything about cutting Miami from the network, some are saying that it looks to be inevitable. Again, for perspective, a very dubious perspective at that, Jersey Shore's season premiere last night had over 4.6 million drunk people tuning in. The horror.
