Jessica Lowndes, Rita Ora Hold Court at Tao

rita-orajessica-lowndestao.jpgWhat do you do when your show that’s a watered-down retread of ’90s immortality finally gets the ax five seasons after it never should’ve got the green light in the first place? You head to Vegas.

Jessica Lowndes, who played Adrianna on the dreadfully sideburns-free version of 90210, was at Tao on March 30 with boyfriend Thom Evans for his 28th birthday. Too bad she bought him an engraved picture frame that read, “Darling Thom, as long as my show goes six seasons and beyond, my heart will remain yours.”

Providing the evening’s entertainment was singer Rita Ora, signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation, who did “Radioactive” and “R.I.P.” that night. Ora was born in Kosovo before her family moved to Britain, and really, when you’re in the conversation as one of the two most famous people from a country, you know you’ve really come along. Unfortunately, that other person is Slobodan Milosevic. Still! Name the second-most famous Ugandan after Idi Amin. See? All of a sudden things don’t look so bad, do they?

Also doing the birthday dance that night was Brad Lutz, whose son Kellan (of Twilight fame) brought him out to dinner there. If you’re going to have a son get famous, it’s important to make sure he gets famous with a bunch of 20-year-old girls who aren’t opposed to using you to get to him. Remember that.
