Nicky Hilton will be here on Friday at the Royal Palm Hotel, specifically, for a late morning press conference to discuss her involvement in a swank Star Island benefit on December 9. Hilton will host the Give a Lift Benefit for Paralysis to benefit the Danielle DeMarzo Foundation and the Step-by-Step Foundation. Best of all, Hilton will donate 10 % of all sales of her condo/hotel units at the Nicky O, slated for a New Year's Eve opening, to the charities. Expected celebs at the December affair are Hilton's sister, Star Island resident Gloria Estefan, Pamela Anderson and Hilton hanger-on, Brandon Davis.

So guess where Barbra Streisand is staying while in town for her exorbitantly priced shows at the Bank Atlantic Center Sunday and Monday nights? Rosie O'Donnell's house on Star Island. Babs got her nails done at the manse by the pros at Rik Rak Salon, who schlepped over the causeway to make sure her claws were prime for picking through her perfecly coiffed strands of hair while on stage. Shout out to Star Island playboy Thomas Kramer: Whatever you do, do not look Babs in the eye, do not talk to her, and do not invite her out to Quattro for a post concert cocktail unless you make sure to invite Bill Clinton and Donna Karan, too. Thankfully Deputy Shaq lives nearby in case things get out of hand.

Helmets off to the Royal Palm Resort. Not only are they bringing sexy back to South Beach with Rande Gerber's first-ever Maxim Lounge, but they’ve also selected Super Bowl weekend to debut the hotel’s revamp into a men’s sanctuary. Maxim’s famed Super Bowl party is rumored to be booked at Royal Palm along with a promise of celebrity friends, a la Carmen Electra and Eva Longoria, stopping by on any given day or for next year's Maxim "Hot 100" party. Sirius radio and iPod docking stations will be featured in all guest rooms, while celeb skin-care specialist Sonya Dakar, whose clientele includes Matt Damon and everyone’s favorite Laguna-Beach-star-turned-tabloid-whore, Kristin Cavallari, will operate the spa and showcase signature male treatments. Detox scrub anyone? Book your rooms now because like all things associated with this sexier-than-thou mag their availability will probably only last a matter of minutes.

The Hilton sisters aren't necessarily known for digging second hand goods, but according to some people, Nicky is digging on her sis Paris's reported beau du jour, Brandon Davis, the one best known for calling Lindsay Lohan such lovely names as Fire Crotch.
Shareef Malnik hosted a dinner Wednesday night at his restaurant, The Forge, for Nicky Hilton, Brandon Davis, Richie Rich, Scott Storch, Pooh Bear, drag diva Elaine Lancaster as her male alter ego James Davis, and other members of the Hilton HHontourage. They arrived at 9:30pm and left at midnight. Davis, reportedly dating the other Hilton sister, and Nicky were sitting next to each other and being giggly. Fresh out of rehab, Davis did not drink. Hilton, we hear, had some wine and then switched to Diet Coke. They were poking and teasing each other at the table, and during a photo op Davis was poking at Hilton and being flirty, say onlookers. "They didn't show any real PDA, but you can tell that something is brewing between them as they didn't want to be caught alone," says one, adding, "But they did leave together."
On another note, in the How the Rich Get Richer Chapter XXXXXXVIIIIII, we hear Hilton has been demanding freebies all over town. Well that's just as shocking as Lance Bass being gay, isn't it?

A reliable source tells us that a big bust went down at the Delano Thursday afternoon around 4pm when police stomred in a arrested five bar staff members for allegedly selling drugs at the pool bar. According to sources, undercover cops had the hotel under investigation and came in sporting ski masks durng the bust. Hmmm. Sounds like they were shooting a movie there or something.

We love Lauren Hutton--the gap in her tooth, the ability to look much younger than her 96 years and her feisty way of life, you know, motorcycling and all. But we have to say shame on Lauren for standing her guests up at the Delano Art for Beauty dinner on Sunday night. All her guests were eagerly awaiting her arrival, kind of like the folks waiting for Louie Prima to show up in the movie Big Night, to no avail. When the Delano received a rambling call from Ms. Hutton saying she wasn't feeling well but would try to stop by, they tried to placate the guests with the news. According to our sources, Ms. Hutton did show up for all of three minutes. Better than nothing, we guess.

We hear there's a big tent pitched over at the Delano and it may not be for some wacky Art Basel installation either. Someone told us it's for the nuptials between Angelina and Brad, but c'mon. This is Miami, not Pakistan! We so doubt it. If anyone has a clue, please fill us in.

Who would have thought the rough and tumble Colin Farrell was a prissy? Ok, fine. Redundant question. Nonetheless, we just heard from an uber reliable source that the Miami Vice star checked out of the Delano because it wasn't nice enough for him and instead checked into the hyper posh Mandarin Oriental Hotel, where we hear his co-star Jamie Foxx is also.
