Mary-Kate Olsen, wearing a smile on her face as she spent lunch with boyfriend Nate Lowman and a group of about 10 pals Jan. 2 at the Beverly Hills Hotel's Polo Lounge. Dressed casually in jeans and a big gray wrap with blue John Lennon-esque sunglasses, Olsen took frequent smoke breaks with Lowman, who acted the gentleman as he held the door for her.
New couple alert? How I Met Your Mother's Jason Segel and The Office's Rashida Jones, making each other laugh hysterically over dinner at L.A.'s Chateau Marmont. Afterward, Segel picked up the tab and led the way out for Jones, who was sporting studious, dark-rimmed glasses.
90210's Adam Gregory and Jessica Lowndes, dancing into the late hours at Bellagio's The Bank nightclub to celebrate his 21st birthday. And as a bevy of beauties presented the birthday boy with a two-tiered cake complete with sparklers, his girlfriend was at his side.
Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo, grabbing New Year's Eve dinner with her family at China Grill in Ft. Lauderdale before heading to Miami to party. With her parents and some friends in a private room, they had sushi, shrimp cakes, Confucious chicken salad, skirt steak, lobster mash and more. "Vanessa looked beautiful," a source said. "They were very sweet with each other."
