Miami, February 5-7, 2010 – The howling blizzards up north this week provided even more incentive for celebrities to head to sunny Miami for Super Bowl weekend. 

A-listers basking in the Florida warmth and football madness included Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, Cameron Diaz, Hilary Swank, Jessica Alba and Carrie Underwood.  Off-duty athletes Andy Roddick, Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter were spotted around Miami cheering on their favorite football teams and partying. 

On Friday, Reebok gave its newly launched ZigTech shoe a serious test with welterweight champion Shane Mosley, Super Bowl XLII MVP Eli Manning, Super Bowl XLIII MVP Santonio Holmes and All-Pro wide receiver Chad Ochocinco trying them out.  Molly Sims was brave, sparring with UFC champion Chuck Liddell, a martial arts expert, at the Reebok launch.  Jersey Shore's The Situation and Pauly D stopped by, but both were careful not to muss their hair.

At W South Beach, Jamie Foxx gave an impromptu performance at Tao’s Super Bowl, belting out Run DMC’s King of Rock.  We spotted Brothers & Sisters hunk Dave Annable with his new girlfriend Odette Yustman

Las Vegas, December 4-5, 2009 – One thing was different at this year’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion’s party – the locale, the drivers partied in Las Vegas for the first time. This year's champion, Jimmie Johnson, was the same, for the fourth time. At Lavo nightclub on Friday night, a four foot ice sculpture encasing Johnson’s car number, 48, greeted guests including skateboard legend Tony Hawk, Hero's Masi Oka and My Name Is Earl's Nadine Velazquez

Samantha Ronson DJ’d and American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi, who was also celebrating her birthday, danced with her new hubby Mike McCuddy.  Dioguardi said she’d had lunch earlier that day with her new Idol co-host Ellen DeGeneres, and is excited to be working with her.

New York, August 28, 2009 – Beer and tennis go together very well, so Heineken teamed up with the USTA to host the US Open kick-off party on a steamy Friday night.  James Blake and Venus Williams came to let off a little pre-tournament steam, while the rest of us danced to the tunes by DJ M.O.S. and sipped quite a few cold ones – miniature kegs were everywhere at the party, and beer-toting waiters roamed the vast warehouse space, making sure nobody was parched.

We quizzed some of the non-athletes at the bash about their skills on the tennis court.  Penn Badgley says his tennis skills are rusty.  “I haven’t played since I was about ten,” the Gossip Girl star told us.  (Sipping a Heineken, Penn admitted that his beer-drinking skills are “pretty polished.”)   Saturday Night Live comic Kenan Thompson said his tennis skills are “whack;” Olivia Palermo and boyfriend Johannes Huebl play frequently and are “really good,” and Emmy Rossum says that while she is a lousy tennis player, she enjoys watching others who are not.  We’ll second that.

On the Scene: David Beckham Returns to Giants Stadium With L.A. Galaxy

New York, July 15-16, 2009 – David Beckham made his annual summer New York area appearance with the L.A. Galaxy, and handily trounced the New York Red Bulls 3-1 in Thursday’s soccer match. 

As a quasi-ambassador for Major League Soccer, Becks also held press conferences before and after the match.  At one on Wednesday at the W Hotel in Hoboken, NJ, Beckham was visibly freezing from the air conditioning – something he should get used to if he wants to stay in America, which he says he decidedly does, despite having spent the last six months playing for Italy’s AC Milan club.  He said his family is happy in L.A., and he’d like to stay there.  “My family is happy. We don't like moving around, we don't like unsettling the kids and that for us is the most important thing,” Beckham said.

About the fact that many fewer fans came to Giants Stadium to see him play this year - just 23,000, about half the number that turned out last year, and a third of those in the stands in 2007 - Becks acknowledged that people might be losing interest in him, but he also noted the economy.  “We're in a recession. Maybe that's part of it."

New York, May 30, 2009 – Prince Harry’s first official visit to New York City culminated with the Veuve Clicquot Manhattan Polo Classic on Saturday. 

We spent an idyllic day sipping Champagne and watching the polo match in the sunshine on Governor's Island. Madonna, Kate Hudson, Chloe Sevigny, LL Cool J, Matt Lauer, Marc Jacobs and Donna Karan watched Harry’s Sentebale team triumph over Nacho Figueras’s Black Watch.

The match was a benefit for American Friends of Sentebale, a charity that Harry co-founded with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho to support at-risk children in that African nation.
