Celebrity Shenanigans in Las Vegas

Lindsay Lohan is apparently back to her vintage shenanigan ways again, this time heading to Milan for fashion week when she had previously committed to hosting a club night Saturday at Las Vegas hotspot Pure nightclub.

The thrill-a-minute ditzy Lohan abruptly canceled her appearance at the club on the day of Saturday’s planned event, with no explanation to anyone, and was later spotted and photographed in Milan. 

Though Lohan may have stealthily skipped out from her Las nightclub engagement, still Sin City got a double dose of star-power on Saturday night when Mariah Carey and Ciara appeared at Haze Nightclub. Mariah was presented with a huge tiered cake after wrapping her Angels Advocate  tour at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, while Ciara hosted the evening at the ARIA Hotel & Casino hotspot at CityCenter, singing along to her hits “Goodies” and “Oh.”

Las Vegas red carpets center stage this weekend

Red carpet A-lister celebrity types of events in Las Vegas have largely been on the wane, what with the drastic downturn in the economy and the policy of many venues to have celebrities pay their way. This weekend shows an inkling of an exception to that rule.  

Kim Kardashian promotes her perfume by walking on the red carpet at 10 p.m. Saturday at the Venetian’s club Tao. 

Controversial Lindsay Lohan will pick up her much needed check for strutting her stuff Saturday on the Pure nightclub red carpet in Caesars at 11:30 p.m.  And, if you believe the Sun of London, she’s now free of drugs and alchol, saying, “I tried to mask my problems with alcohol, cocaine and mind-altering substances…Now I’m in a place where I don’t need to use anything.”  This of course begs the question why in the hell would she want to show up clubbing at a venue where strong drinking is the rule.  And if her on-again, off-again flame Samantha Ronson will sneak in, is anybody’s guess. 

Mariah Carey will air out her pipes earlier on Saturday at the Colosseum.  Undoubtedly, she will be seen lurking in the many nook and cranny shadows of Las Vegas later in the evening. 

At 5:30 p.m. on Saturday their will be a red carpet fundraiser at the Bellagio for the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Helath, promising to showcase Danny DeVito, Buzz Aldrin, Brad Garrett, Leeza Gibbons, Wolfgang Puck and Thomas Keller.

 Iyaz sings “Replay” after an 11:30 p.m. red carpet Saturday at the Bellagio club Bank. 

“American Idol” guy Larry Platt appears after midnight tonight at Mirage club Jet.

Ciara gets her carpet call after midnight Saturday at CityCenter club Haze.

 If you enjoy gawking sports stars, Pierre Thomas and Lance Moore of the Super Bowl winning New Orleans Saints will be paid to appear on the red carpet at 11 p.m. this evening at Palazzo’s club Lavo. 

If all this NASCAR weekend and red carpet stuff is just too much for you, please check out the fuzz-guitar weirdo-rock of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club at 9:30 p.m. on Sunday at Wasted Space at the Hard Rock.  Oh, and bring $20 to get in.

Ashton Kutcher in Las Vegas for Movie Premier, Diggnation Pow-Wow Today

Ashton Kutcher, actor and husband to Demi Moore and the face of Nikon’s Cool Pix camera campaign, will join Digg.com founder and former Las Vegas resident Kevin Rose for an episode of Diggnation this evening. The show’s regular co-host, Alex Albrecht, co-creator of podcast hit “The Totally Rad Show,” will also take part. ashtonkutcher

Kutcher fans and residents of Diggnation are invited to attend the Las Vegas-based broadcast, which will begin at 5 p.m. at the Palms Casino & Resort on August 5. 

The tech-savvy trio, who exchanged plans on Twitter, will set up at the Pearl at 5:30 p.m., according to a Palms spokesperson.

The three Internet addicts will discuss the top stories listed on the Digg.com, a site that allows users to submit and share links to stories, blogs, videos and other Web content. 

Yet Diggnation is not the only reason Kutcher is coming to town. The 31-year-old star is also headed this way for the premiere of his new movie, “Spread,” which hits theaters across the U.S. on August 14. 

In “Spread,” produced by Kutcher’s Katalyst production company, Kutcher plays a fun-loving freeloader who suddenly finds himself on the street after his sugar mamma, played by Heche, discovers he’s been cheating on her with a woman younger than Kutcher — one who is Heche’s age. 

Kutcher will also walk the red carpet about 6:30 p.m. today outside Brenden Theaters immediately following his guest spot on Diggnation.  

Kutcher’s co-star, Anne Heche, will also be at the Palms for the premiere but it has not been said whether Kutcher’s famous and famously older wife, Demi Moore, will be there. 

The May-December pair, who enjoy a 15-year age difference, tied the knot in 2005.
