Today in celebrity gossip: Find out how Leonardo DiCaprio had two New Year's Eves this year, see Taylor and Harry share a midnight kiss, and wonder about the star status of Sofia Vergara.
While most of us spent our New Year's Eve teetering in some bar or sitting at home alone in a puddle of cheap champagne, glad we only have to do this once a year, rich and famous playboy Leonardo DiCaprio decided to have two New Year's Eves, on different continents. He was in Australia with Jonah Hill and Jamie Foxx and others, partying on a yacht in the Sydney Harbor over the weekend and hanging out at a club on Monday night until 1 a.m. Then he and all his friends got on a chartered jet and flew 13 hours to Las Vegas, arriving in time for midnight. Quite the holiday! I hope they had fun and didn't have that stale airplane-stink about them after that long flight. I am a bit worried about them though, as I think having two New Year's Eves, one in Australia and the other in Las Vegas, is the quickest way to give oneself permanent jetlag. Like, there is no recovering from the odd sensation of counting down to midnight and saying "Happy New Year!" twice, one of the times in Las Vegas. That's about as surreal and disorienting as it gets, I'd imagine. But that's how Leo DiCaprio and E from Entourage (also on the plane) like to do things. They are wild and free and wealthy beyond measure. So they will risk perma-jetlag just to say they did, to sip champagne in two different nightclubs on two different continents, to see if the banquette leather feels any different depending on the hemisphere. Hopefully they are happy with all they learned. [Page Six]
Meanwhile in New York, some woman threw $800 in the air like confetti at The Lambs Club, a restaurant in a swanky Art Deco hotel right off Times Square. The diners had a "private viewing of the ball" on 44th Street, though it's unclear how such a thing could be private, and then when they got inside for midnight, this lady threw 800 one dollar bills in the air. Because if there's any way to say "Hooray, we're rich!" in a really obnoxious way, it's by doing that. Adding to the feeling of glamor, Ryan Seacrest apparently kept popping into the restaurant to keep warm during his big New Year's Rockin' Eve broadcast, and after midnight Topher Grace and Mario Lopez were seen at the mezzanine bar. So that's... That's a pretty chichi event? I don't know. That sounds like a not-so-fun event, actually. Mario Lopez and some awful woman who threw money in the air for a bunch of rich people because who cares about silly, frivolous money. I'm sure there were some fun moments when Ryan Seacrest said something strange and awkward to Mario Lopez involving the word "dimples," but beyond that I'd rather be elsewhere. Not on Leo's party jet, but definitely not there either. [Page Six]
