Penélope Cruz, partying with Sean "Diddy" Combs and her brother Eduardo at New York City club Butter. The actress – dressed in an all-white suit – danced in her seat to Pharrell and Kanye West’s “Number 1” as Diddy jumped on the banquette. Later, both stars got on their feet to James Brown’s “Sex Machine.” And when Nelly Furtado’s “Promiscuous” played, Cruz sang along as Diddy typed away on his BlackBerry. Earlier in the night, the trio hit new hot spot Tenjune.
Charlize Theron and a female friend, checking out a fans-only secret show by The Killers at The Troubadour in West Hollywood. Theron, casual in jeans and a tank top and no makeup, watched the concert with the rest of the general-admission audience and afterward headed upstairs to the VIP bar for a quiet drink.
Jessica Simpson, dining with friends at West Hollywood eatery Il Sole. “They shared lots of giggles,” an onlooker tells us. On another night at the restaurant, Courteney Cox and David Arquette cuddled over dinner. “They were adoring each other,” says a fellow diner. “She kissed him on the cheek. They looked sweet together.”
Mary-Kate Olsen, holding court at L.A. lounge Les Deux. The actress smoked a cigarette and sipped on an energy drink as she hung out with a group of pals. Owen Wilson and David Spade also made the scene on the same night.
Eva Longoria and Tony Parker, partying at the Entertainment Tonight/PEOPLE Emmys bash at Asia de Cuba and Skybar at West Hollywood’s Mondrian Hotel. She admitted that she literally got her man dressed for the big night: “I put the pants on him, put the belt on him, and pushed him out the door,” Longoria told us. Her fellow Desperate Housewife Felicity Huffman, newly engaged Brooke Burke and David Charvet, and Lisa Rinna and husband Harry Hamlin also reveled at the fete. At one point, Vanessa Minnillo snacked on ice-cream in the Häagen-Dazs suite and looked like she was mimicking Jessica Simpson’s ice-cream cone act from her video “A Public Affair.”
Shanna Moakler, going solo at the TV Guide Emmys party at Social Hollywood. “Right now, I’m dancing so much,” she told us about appearing on Dancing with the Stars. “I see myself as a little bit of an underdog, but I’m just going to charm them with personality.” Also on hand: Mariska Hargitay, Debra Messing, Wentworth Miller, Simon Cowell and girlfriend Terri Seymour, Matthew Perry and James Denton. The highlight of the fete was a special performance by Pink.
