When he would get up to chat with others, she would watch him and smile, staying seated. The Hairspray actress also joked around with Brody Jenner and Frankie Delgado, who were at their table. Bynes seemed to fit right in with the Hills guys, the onlooker says: She had everyone smiling and laughing.
