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." He then walked over to the host stand to ask for a table and "made a giant scene," causing a staffer to pull him aside, quietly telling him he'd not be seated. 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 quietly 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.

James Franco on WhoSay We received a few tips telling us that actor, writer, academic and general Renaissance man James Franco was seen lounging at the pool at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino over the weekend, which isn't that unusual until we saw his website, www.jamesfrancotv.com. On it were pix of Franco hanging out in his room and doing what most famous people do--lounging in these fine pink, cupcake printed footie pajamas. We have no idea why either, but it's James Franco, a multifaceted if not strange cat--er, cupcake. Doing a little digging, we discovered that on Thursday, Weezer played Hard Rock Live and on Friday they had the MMA's Bellator Fighting Championships. On Saturday, Paul Rodriguez played the Improv, DJ Laz spun at Passion, and at Gryphon were George Acosta and Donnie Lowe. Suddenly it all makes sense. Franco was here to see DJ Laz. The pajamas are a whole 'nother story.
