TAO FOR TWO

At the one-year-anniversary party for Tao at the Venetian Sept. 29, tennis ace ANDY RODDICK announced his split from MARIA SHARAPOVA and told reporters, "I'm flying solo. It's Vegas; you don't bring sand to the beach." But he soon teamed up with PARIS HILTON; they talked all night and eventually left together, says an onlooker. Also on Tao's guest list: a Britney-less KEVIN FEDERLINE; JEREMY PIVEN, who danced while JAMIE FOXX sang "Golddigger" (four times!); and BROOKE SHIELDS, who buddied up to an unlikely party pal, MIKE TYSON. Traveling without her kids, she joked, "You know you're in trouble when you're coming to Vegas for a good night's sleep!"

FAST TAKES

It's back to work for ANGELINA JOLIE. On Oct. 2 the actress (above) began filming A Mighty Heart, which is being produced by BRAD PITT's company Plan B, in Marseilles, France. The rest of the family film crew was along too, including Maddox, 5, Zahara, 1, and Shiloh, 4 months.

LEONARDO DICAPRIO feted his new crime drama The Departed at N.Y.C.'s Marquee on Sept. 26. The arrived: costars MATT DAMON and MARK WAHLBERG and rock stars BONO and MICK JAGGER.
