Venus and Serena Williams lived it up over the weekend, hitting Opium and Mansion like tennis stars turned rock stars. The sisters showed up at Mansion Friday night to watch Imperia Vodka's battle of the DJs--AM vs. Mark Ronson. Spotted in the crowd were Ricky Martin, Lydia Hearst and Pharell. But the Sisters were the main attraction as they set up shop at a table directly next to the DJ booth so the crowd could watch Serena serve up vodka tonics in between cozying up to rapper Busta Rhymes, whom we hear made a very audible homophobic slur at 5:30am Sunday at the 11th Street Diner after a gay man complimented him on his comeback. "He was so rude," says one shocked witness who scurried out of the diner after Busta's bodyguards started moving in on the stunned fan.

NBA All-Star/Miami Heat's Dwayne Wade, visited Spa V at the Hotel Victor in Miami Beach Wednesday night for a little R & R. He experienced the luxurious V60 Swedish Massage and relaxed in the Spa V Cool Down Room. He left the lucky master masseuse an extremely generous tip. With his salary, we'd expect nothing less.

Miami Heat DJ Irie sure does get around. Not only does he spin Heat fans into a frenzy at the triple A, among several other hot spots in town, but this past weekend, he hosted a celeb golf tourney to benefit the Miami Heat Charitable Fund. In addition to the Heat dancers, who undoubtedly felt right at home as the golf crowd ogled them much like the basketball crowd does, several Heat players including Eddie Jones, Rasual Butler and Udonis Haslem did the fore-play thing at the Miami Beach Golf Club Friday with Drumline star Nick Cannon, Dennis Scott of the Memphis Grizzlies, Antrel Rolle of the Arizona Cardinals and Raja Bell of the Utah Jazz.
But it was the threesome of New Orleans Saints player Kijana Carter, Rolle and Bell that won the whole thing. Bell took home a Krieger watch for hitting closest to the pin at hole #6; Cannon was a big winner, onstage with Fat Joe at the tourney afterparty at Mansion; but the biggest winner of all was DJ Irie, who was kind enough to give him his mic to Jamie Foxx who insisted the crowd give it up, too, for Irie's charity work and putting together a swell weekend.
