Friday night the evening started with an Italian dinner at LAVO inside The Palazzo Las Vegas. A bevy of celebrities dined on specialties from the kitchen including the famed Kobe Meatball and Oreo Zeppole for dessert. Spotted in the dining room were Amanda Bynes, Jennifer Morrison and boyfriend Amaury Nolasco, Krysten Ritter with boyfriend, music video director Scott Culver, Stephen Dorff, Brandi Cibrian and Jennifer Gimenez, Adrien Brody and Emile Hirsch and Victoria’s Secret model Selita Ebanks. Adrien Brody dined with owner and friend Noah Tepperberg. Amanda Bynes popped in quickly to wish LAVO a happy one-year anniversary and enjoy LAVO’s classic Kobe meatball. Jason Kennedy from E! News arrived with a group of young Hollywood names including 90210’s Patrick Sebes, Zachary Abel from The Secret Life of the American Teenager and Johanna Brady from ABC Family’s Greek. Brandi Cibrian, who came in to Vegas for a weekend with the girls, reminisced that it had been just a few months since she was at LAVO, the very same spot where her soon to be ex-husband Eddie Cibrian (who left her for country singer LeAnn Rimes) professed his love for her (following rumors of his supposed affair with LeAnn).

The party continued as guests journeyed upstairs to the nightclub where DJ Reach was spinning for the packed crowd. Vanessa Minnillo and Nick Lachey were spotted getting cozy in a corner VIP booth. Nicole Scherzinger arrived around 2 am and quickly took over a VIP table where Champagne and Patron XO Café flowed. Aubrey O’Day, who just joined the cast of Peepshow was also upstairs, as was NFL free agent Melvin Fowler.

Saturday afternoon TAO Beach was the place to be, with Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul, Amanda Righetti from The Mentalist and Californication’s Eva Amurri all joining the daytime party, taking over cabanas along with couples Jennifer Morrison and Amaury Nolasco and Krysten Ritter and Scott Culver.

Brandi Cibrian and Jennifer Gimenez took in the sun with Cibrian garnering many appreciative stares as she stunned in a red bikini…Eddie who? Gimenez, who recently dropped 95 lbs, boasted her new svelte figure in a skimpy bikini. Emilie Hirsch smoked from a hookah and ate sushi from a cabana by the pool. Aaron Paul bumped into costar Krysten Ritter; the two were friendly and enjoyed a lengthy conversation. Susan Sarandon’s daughter, Eva Amurri, who is a new series regular on Californication, got cozy in her cabana with her boyfriend. The couple, who recently moved in together in Los Angeles (he moved from San Francisco; she from New York) left their not yet unpacked boxes and their brand new apartment and said “screw it- let’s go to Vegas.”

The party continued upstairs at TAO nightclub as Diddy took over the mike and treated the crowd to an hour long impromptu performance. Jennifer Love got up on the catwalk where she danced and shook her infamous booty. When the balloons dropped in celebration of the anniversary, Jennifer and boyfriend Jamie Kennedy playfully bounced a balloon back and forth. The couple were kissing, dancing and being very affectionate throughout the evening. While dancing, Jamie Kennedy joked that he was waiting for Diddy to give him his cue to join him on the mike (it didn’t happen). Amanda Bynes took off her shoes to dance on the couch at her table…she danced until the wee hours of the morning. Upstairs in a skybox, Tiger Woods enjoyed the performance from afar with friends. Rocker Matt Sorum and fighter Floyd Mayweather, Jr. each arrived after 2 am, but still in plenty of time to celebrate. Chris Willis, known for his collaborations with disco house music artist David Guetta rounded out the night with a performance for the packed crowd. At the end of the night and a weekend of celebration, Jennifer Love admitted “I’ve never had so much fun!”
