Paris Hilton, reconnecting with former beau Stavros Niarchos over a sushi dinner at L.A.’s Matsuhisa. The next night, after hanging out together at Teen Vogue’s Young Hollywood party, the pair were spotted kissing at Hyde Lounge. “They left together holding hands,” says an observer. So, are things over with Travis Barker? “They’re not anything serious, I’ll tell you that. She can have friends,” Hilton’s pal, model-actress Caroline D’Amore told us at the Hollywood Covered magazine launch party at Falcon.
Lance Bass and boyfriend Reichen Lehmkuhl, sitting with their arms wrapped around each other at Skybar at the Shore Club in Miami. The couple then headed to Suite, where they hung out in the VIP room and did Patrén tequila shots and even danced to pal Justin Timberlake’s song “My Love.”

Chris Klein and new girlfriend Ginnifer Goodwin, making an appearance together at the Runway for Life event benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital at the Beverly Hilton. Also there: Lisa Rinna, who’s so supportive of husband Harry Hamlin’s stint on Dancing with the Stars that she created a line of tee shirts and hats in his honor, which she sells at her L.A. boutique Belle Gray (among the slogans: ‘Harry Rocks,’ ‘Harry’s Harem’ and ‘Vote for Harry’).
Brooke Burke and fiancé David Charvet, walking hand-in-hand through the crowds at the Nautica Malibu triathlon, where Felicity Huffman and husband William H. Macy opted for the four-mile run rather than participate in the 18-mile bike ride and 1/2-mile swim. Before the Desperate Housewife and her man headed off on their jog, they snuggled as they strolled along the beach together.
