Across the club, it was business usual: Paris Hilton was dancing her heart out as the center of attention, while Ashlee Simpson-Wentz spent time with a girlfriend.
After her not-so-well-received performance on Dancing with the Stars, Kate Gosselin and her bodyguard stepped out for dinner at RockSugar Pan Asian Kitchen in L.A. The pair dined on chicken satay, ginger soy black cod, caramel shrimp and some veggies – as well as coffee and iced green tea.
On a break from filming The Tourist, Johnny Depp was spotted chatting with his good friend, rocker Patti Smith, inside Paris’s Hyatt Parc Vendome Hotel in the afternoon. Later that night, the actor spent time with another important lady in his life: Vanessa Paradis, and the two popped into Chanel’s Rue Cambon boutique around 8 p.m.
