Seen Around Town: Orange Is the New Black Trio at Beauty & Essex, Kevin Hart at High Roller Bowl

As a kid, seeing Spider-Man at the mall was such a big deal. That was the celebrity sighting to end all celebrity sightings. Had we known that all these years later Spider-Man would be reduced to panhandling on the Strip alongside Bumblebee and Drunk Mickey—it’s just a reminder that fame is fleeting. Let’s hope we never see these people wearing a Minions costume outside of Bellagio.


If you want to see celebrities, you need to get yourself a seat in that Magic Mike Live audience at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Had you been there Friday, you would have seen WWE stars Emma and Summer Rae in the crowd. After the show, the pair joined friend and celebrity makeup artist Stella Kae for a photo with some of the cast.


It got crowded at The Venetian’s TAO Beach when DJ Khaled took over the pool party on Saturday. Spotted in the many cabanas: OT Genasis, Fabolous, Pusha T, New York Giants Player Odell Beckham Jr., Los Angeles Laker Luol Deng, and Denver Broncos Wide Receiver Von Miller.

Later at TAO Nightclub, Diddy showed up and briefly performed on stage with headliner French Montana. You can do that when you’re Diddy. You just show up and do your thing. You don’t even have to ask permission.

It’s unlikely you’d see all three sharing the same scene, but a trio of Orange Is the New Black stars was spotted sharing a table at Beauty & Essex inside The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.

Lea DeLaria, who plays inmate Big Boo, Emily Tarver, who plays CO McCollough and Beth Dover, who plays Mr. Caputo’s corporate squeeze Linda, enjoyed cocktails and seafood with actress Ta’rea Campbell.  

And after spending the day in the sun at TAO Beach, Beckham Jr. and Miller made their way to TCOLV to see Gucci Mane at Marquee Nightclub.

Meanwhile in Downtown Las Vegas, Mötley Crüe frontman Vince Neil christened the new 3rd Street concert venue between the Downtown Grand towers. The free “Rock the Street” show drew an estimated crowd of 5,000 people.


Usher got his name on the billboard, but we hear 2 Chainz stole the show at the Hard Rock’s Rehab pool party on Sunday.

Look who came to say hello to @usher here at #rehab ? @hairweavekiller popping in to #rehablv !

The 2017 Life is Beautiful headliner was just coming off a late night performance at 1OAK, so you gotta wonder if he’d even been to sleep before going to Rehab.

After his Rehab stint, Usher made his way over to the Absinthe tent, where he snapped a pic with star Melody Sweets. The two look good together.

Meanwhile, reality television personality Alexis Waters—her big thing was dressing up as Left Shark on The Bachelor, or something—spent her Sunday at Encore Beach Club. She posted an Instagram video of herself doing a shot off a pregnant friend’s belly. Right on.

Over at Aria, comedian Kevin Hart was among those at the tables for the 2017 Super High Roller Bowl. Hart survived Day 1 of the tourney, and was responsible for eliminating star poker player Phil Hellmuth.

And real quick, take a look at Afrojack boarding a jet to Vegas, where he was tapped to headline Wet Republic on Memorial Day.
