Caught in the Act!
Ryan Seacrest and girlfriend Julianne Hough shared a romantic lunch at Chicago Cut Steakhouse. The couple asked for a private table where they shared kisses and were very cuddly, a source tells us, adding that Seacrest chose the restaurant on the recommendation of his E! colleague Giuliana Rancic. During their meal, the two shared three courses, accompanied with some Italian wine. The following night, Ranic took her own recommendation and dined at Cut with hubby Bill, as well as some friends.

Goodbye Beverly Hills – and hello New York City! As they rev up for season 2 of their Bravo reality show, three of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars – Kyle Richards, Adrienne Maloof and Lisa Vanderpump – decamped to New York with their husbands in tow for several celebrations and some good old fashioned promotion. On Sunday night, the ladies celebrated Maloof's 50th birthday at new eatery Beauty & Essex on Manhattan's Lower East Side. First, the three first browsed the antique shop in the restaurant's entryway, then Maloof grabbed some free champagne and headed up to her dinner party. The next night, just as their show premiered with a slightly-reedited episode, the ladies, their husbands and Vanderpump's dog, Jiggy, dined at Stantion Social, and shared favorites including the French onion soup dumplings, chicken and waffles and a chocolate tasting.
