It was a busy weekend having nothing to do with Lindsay Lohan's release from jail or Chelsea Clinton's nuptials. Between Rihanna in town and T.I. marrying his girlfriend, Tameka "Tiny" Cottle at the Miami Beach courthouse and then on Star Island, it was almost A-list. We emphasize almost because the not quite a singer named Ke$ha, whom we prefer to call Ke¢ha, was here, too, opening for Rihanna at her Saturday AAA show. Before heading to Cameo late Saturday night, where Rihanna, Nelly, Ashanti, Usher, Jermaine Dupri and T.I. were hanging out (because Cameo's exactly where you'd choose to go directly after getting hitched), Ke¢ha was spotted at the Robert Plant show at Bayfront, where we hope she sent her song "Tik Tok" on its own Stairway to Heaven. Meanwhile, over at Club Play Friday, ex basketball wife Shaunie O'Neal was seen with 23-year-old model boyfriend Marlon Yates. According to our source, Yates "Followed her around like a young puppy." Of course he did. After her first marriage to an alleged philanderer didn't work out, the ex Mrs. Shaq obivously hired herself the best dog whisperer money could buy. And speaking of philandering, our inbox was full this morning after a deep throat with a deep seated vendetta sent us countless emails between a certain ex NBA player and a certain Miami philanthropist. Apparently said NBA has-been, a married man, did what lots of wealthy athletes do: he cheated on his wife. And with words like the following, if we were his wife, we'd let the other woman have him: "I wanted to take your clothes off right there and LICK YOU.... I was fine. I came right home and took a cold shower and went to bed. And I didn't think about no one on the trip. I couldn't call you from Michigan because I was with the family. So what are we going to do about us?" As for the "us," well, as far as we know, that's done already. And as for why we're keeping this anonymous, let's just say we have Spam written by more famous people than this email. We just hope the wife in this case gets hold of that same dog whisperer Shaunie O'Neal used.

Bacardi B-live threw a bash at Cameo last night, with Travis Barker and Pete Wentz hitting the turntables. Wentz arrived with girlfriend Ashlee Simpson. The twosome held hands the entire time says a spy. "They were inseparable,” says the spy. However, when Wentz invited Simpson into the DJ booth she quickly declined. Says our source, “She was dancing on a banquette and told Pete she didn’t want to give up her position.”

Whether or not new age maestro Yanni assaulted his last twenty something girlfriend was clearly irrelevant at Saturday night's Fashion Art Ball at the Casa Casuarina, where a slew of silicone Barbies were seen swarming all over the guy upstairs at the Davidoff Cigar Lounge. "Half of them clearly didn't even know what a Yanni was," says a source. "It must be his hair--he has money hair." Um, more than hair, the fact that Yanni was cavorting with Casa owner Peter Loftin most likely had something to do with the harem crowding around the Greek. If you ask us, we liked it better when Yanni was shacked up with Linda Evans. Now he's just another rich dude with a good tan and a manse in Palm Beach playing the field. Not very zen-sounding, is it?

Lots of stuff went on over the weekend and not all of it had anything to do with the Ocean Drive Mag party Saturday night.
--Bobby Brown was back in town and checked into the Shore Club, we hear, but the check in clerk forgot to take a credit card imprint for incidentals. Brown charged $400 at the spa but later claimed not to have any money so the hotel locked him out of his room! Say it isn't so! It's so. The hotel was thisclose, we hear, to calling the police after blocking Brown's limo in with a staffer's car. But at the eleventh hour, Brown's attorney called in and wired the funds.
--Something similar happened to Paris Hilton, who checked into a bungalow at The Shore Club and suddenly "ran out of money," so she had to get Bank of America to wire in $5,000 so she'd have money for the weekend. Apparently the heiresses credit card was maxed out. Shocker!

Lots happened over the weekend, but the best of all was the sight of Al Reynolds, the overly doted upon hubby of Star Jones. He was at the Vivica A. Fox bash at Prive on Saturday and contrary to popular belief, Al really does like the ladies. According to spies, Al was pouring drinks for all the ladies who, if Star finds out, better run for cover, because even though she's dropped some poundage, her fury, we hear, is heavy duty.
