and Joel Madden
at a table in Los Angeles's newest hot
spot, Crown Bar. (Lohan, recently back from Paris,
was there with
BFF Samantha Ronson,
who was deejaying at the club.) Richie sipped
on a glass of white wine, then danced up a storm with Lohan and some female
friends. Madden, meanwhile, chatted with his guy friends at the table. When
Ronson spun the New Kids on the Block's "You Got It (The Right Stuff),"
Richie pointed at Lohan mid-dance.
At one point, Lohan and Ronson took a smoke break on the patio, and
when Ronson was ready to go inside, Lohan leaned over and gave her a kiss on
the cheek as Lohan finished her smoke. Later in the night, Lohan, who was
cheering Ronson on all night, joined her pal behind the deejay booth.
Around midnight, Lauren Conrad
and Lauren Bosworth
said "hi" to Richie by the bar – then ditched their table
(with Stephanie Pratt
) to join her on the dance floor. Richie and
Conrad held hands as they got down to the mix of retro and new songs.
and Leighton Meester
, celebrating their Nylon
magazine covers with their Gossip Girl
costars during an Armani Exchange-hosted dinner at Amalia in New
York. The ladies were joined by their male counterparts, Penn Badgley
and Chace Crawford
, who sat at the dinner with
some male buddies. While real-life couple
Lively and Badgley didn't get too romantic at dinner,
they did arrive (and leave) together, and whispered in each other's ears at
the table. Also there: Michelle Trachtenberg, Jamie-Lynn Sigler
chatting in an upbeat fashion after dinner
at West Hollywood's Chateau Marmont with some friends. The former Gilmore Girls
star wore her hair pulled back into a low, loose ponyta
and she sported a fitted cream blazer over dark pants and boots.
Following New York Post
reports that she recently
got "cozy" with a younger man at an upfronts party, Real Housewives of New York
star LuAnn de Lesseps
was spotted sitting with her husband, Alexandre Count de Lesseps,
and causing a stir during dinner at Brio in New York. "They were loud; people were definitely looking," an onlooker
tells us of the tense scene at the Italian restaurant. "The count looked
furious and she was leaning back in her chair." Adds the onlooker: "He was
swearing and in a raised voice kept repeating to his wife, 'You don't
understand reality, you're consumed by the show!'" But the couple denied any
strife on the red carpet at the American Image Awards. "Alex and I are very
happily married, and we're very much together," the countess tells us. And
her husband added: "I rarely speak about private matters, but I do agree
strongly with that."
