LOS ANGELES – Lindsay Lohan spent her 4th of July at Malibu’s DKNY Beach House under mama Dina’s watchful eye, and apparently she was less than impressed about it.
We’re told a clearly bored and annoyed Linds (sans BFF Samantha Ronson) spent her entire day texting away madly and was in no mood to associate with other party peeps. She reportedly even made it very obvious not to go anywhere near "The Hills" starlets who were at the bash to film their reality show.
Speaking of reality shows, it looks as though the 22-year-old actress may be making an appearance in her mom and sis Ali’s E! show "Living Lohan," despite Dina’s claims that it would be a "step back" in her daughter’s career. The Lohan duo were also filming and Li-Lo was reportedly included in some poolside scenes donning a red bikini, but her shrinking frame has again sparked speculation that Linds isn’t looking after herself.
"She is so skinny," a Lohan pal told Tarts. "We were all taken aback. You could see her bones."
Despite all the drama going on in the DKNY Beach House, the designer herself was hobnobbing amid a far more sophisticated crowd at Michael Jackson’s former manager Sandy Gallin’s Hamptons house party.
Donna Karan was spotted in the company of fellow designer Marc Jacobs as well as A-listers like Richard Gere, Brooke Shields, Mary J. Blige, Russell Simmons and music mogul L.A. Reid.
It was also a little "Sex in the City" reunion with Sarah-Jessica Parker partying with rocker Jon Bon Jovi, who made a cameo appearance in the second season of the series as Carrie's love interest she met at her shrink's office.
But guests at Ron Perelman’s annual Independence Day soiree in the Hamptons on Saturday night were treated to a very sweet surprise — Bon Jovi and John Mellencamp giving a private concert at the house for the likes of Elle Macpherson, Donny Deutsch, Ivanka Trump, Renee Zellweger and Howard Stern.
Fourth of July Ex-Fest
LNA's Project Beach House (the other popular party house in Malibu this summer) also attracted a number of in-demand Tinseltown types to its inaugural all-day/night affair, although it was quite the awkward reunion of past and present lovers.
Kristin Cavallari partied the sunshine away as did her ex-beau Brody Jenner, past rumored romance Sean Stewart and her recent former fling Kevin Connolly. Connolly’s ex Nicky Hilton also attended the affair and was in the company of several of her big sis Paris's ex men including Brody Jenner, Stavros Niarchos and David Faustino.
The normally shy J.C. Chasez was quite confident in pulling some gyrating dance moves — but that was before Tara Reid (with whom he was once romantically linked) entered the premises. Chasez’s other leading lady Camille Guaty was also present and Audrina Patridge popped by alongside her sometime boyfriend Bobby Campo to chill out in the Boost Mobile cabanas. Small world!
Ashley Dupre Won’t Go Wild on Joe Francis
Eliot Spitzer's infamous call girl Ashley Dupre was scheduled to be questioned in a legal deposition last week regarding her $10 million lawsuit against "Girls Gone Wild" CEO Joe Francis over claims he "ruined her reputation" by exposing videos she made for the company back in 2003. But instead Dupre dropped the suit altogether.
Francis announced that the now 23-year-old had volunteered to perform for the Girls Gone Wild cameras and provided both a verbal and written release for the company to use the footage. But because Dupre had offered false identification and lied about her age on camera (she was only 17) the company declined to publish the material.
"The filing of the lawsuit was a serious lapse of judgment on her part," Francis said in a statement. "I don't understand how I could possibly damage the reputation of a hooker."
Cannon Spins Without Carey, Christian Audigier Doesn't Deliver?
Celebrity DJ/Mr. Mariah Carey Nick Cannon had the party pumping until the early hours last Friday for the 4th of July grand opening of Christian Audigier: The Nightclub at Sin City's Treasure Island.
Despite speculation that Mariah may come to support her hubby, Cannon spun solo after announcing to People magazine on the red carpet that "married life is good."
But even though Ed Hardy designer Audigier was reveling in the limelight, the star-studded turnout was slightly disappointing compared to his recent 50th birthday bash which attracted the likes of Michael Jackson, Britney Spears, Fergie, Snoop Dogg and Mena Suvari.
Despite all the hype leading up to the event, the only notable Hollywood hotties hanging in the skull-themed party place were Bai Ling and Jaime Pressly. George Clooney’s former flame Sarah Larson was another "celebrity" tipped to attend but she was a no-show — that fifteen minutes is obviously still going strong.
Jessica Alba’s Pops Pregnancy Pounds
Looking at Jessica Alba now, it's hard to imagine that a month ago she was pregnant and an estimated 25 pounds heavier than before she was knocked up. The "Love Guru" starlet and hubby Cash Warren spent a relaxing weekend strolling through Beverly Hills, and Jess looked surprisingly small in her strappy pink summer dress.
The always health-conscious actress maintained an exercise regime throughout her nine months, working out regularly at the gym and going for walks. In true Hollywood style, Alba’s excess weight seems to be dropping off at a very rapid rate.
