On a break from shooting Gossip Girl, and shared a romantic brunch at Five Points in New York. According to an eyewitness, the actor was “very doting” and even walked his girlfriend to the bathroom at the end of their meal. The two left the restaurant arm-in-arm.
Meanwhile, uptown AnnaLynne McCord noshed on a grilled cheese and ham sandwich at Junior’s in New York’s Times Square. The 90210 star was joined by two male pals at the table as she ate half her sandwich; she left her order of buffalo fingers untouched.
Grey’s Anatomy star Justin Chambers blew onto the patio of West Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont with a couple of guys in tow and settled into a remote corner outside. Chambers looked eager to chat, an onlooker says, and he was really animated, gesturing and chainsmoking until they left at 1 a.m.
New uncle Benji Madden had a guys’ night, too, partying at Teddy’s inside the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. The rocker and his friends shared a table overlooking the dance floor where Madden sipped Red Bull and surveyed the venue. He also nodded along to the music and got to his feet at one point, proudly reciting the lyrics to Prince’s “Kiss” for his friends.
Football star (and Dancing with the Stars alum) Warren Sapp, keeping a watchful eye on a giant snake during the grand opening party for Le Souk Harem in New York. “Big Warren was freaked out,” one partygoer tells us. “When one of the belly dancers at the party came near his table with a 6 ft. python around her neck, he wasn’t looking at her,” says one partygoer. “He was looking at that snake; his eyes were popping out of his head!”
