Seen Around Town: Dillion Francis Makes His Celebrity Rounds and More

Celebrities frequent our city around the clock. Here are the most notable visits of the week.

Las Vegas is ground zero for reality television (so-called) celebrity sightings. It goes all the way back to Real World: Las Vegas and probably even before.

That’s not breaking news to anyone, just something we’ve come to accept, for better or for worse.

So let’s take a look at which vaguely famous people probably didn’t have to pay for parking on the Strip this weekend.

Friday 2

“A man who made money in real estate and his family” is not just a way to describe the current administration; it’s also the studio pitch that led to five seasons of Chrisley Knows Best on the USA Network.

One member of the clan, Chase Chrisley, celebrated his 21st birthday at Paris Las Vegas’ Chateau Nightclub & Rooftop on Friday night, and fans went crazier than that guy who won Plinko.

Look it up on YouTube.

Chateau rolled out the red carpet, literally, for Chrisley, who scored himself a VIP booth right in the center of the club. As confetti poured down from the rafters and servers held up “Happy Birthday, Chase,” signs, envy swept over the crowd of paying customers, who collectively contemplated just what exactly counts as famous anymore.

Okay, everything after “signs” we made up.

Saturday 3

You missed a helluva pool party at MGM Grand’s Wet Republic on Saturday. People got showered in champagne, Calvin Harris was behind the decks and British reality television personality Nicole Bass wowed the crowd in an itsy bitsy teenie weenie blue and white bikini. Bass later went clubbing with her girlfriends, and probably had no trouble attracting attention.

Later that night, the great Lou Diamond Phillips dined with his family at The Venetian’s newest must-try restaurant, Chica. The La Bamba and Young Guns star was also spotted having drinks at next-door hotspot The Dorsey.  

Wynn Nightlife resident DJ Dillon Francis is surrounded by beautiful people. Don’t believe us? On Saturday night he made a quick swing by Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino to snap a picture with Jennifer Lopez, who is here headlining her All I Have show at The AXIS. Later that night, Francis played Wynn Las Vegas’ Intrigue nightclub, with model/artist Nikki Phoenix among those in the crowd.

Over at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas’ newest resident performer (and our favorite), Kendra Wilkinson, was seen dancing, drinking and posing for pictures with fans at the resort’s Vista Cocktail Lounge. We’ve been seeing a lot of the former Girl Next Door since she launched her Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man show over at Paris Las Vegas.

And reality television personality Malika Haqq got the VIP treatment (of course she did) at Omnia Nightclub, where 2017 Life is Beautiful headliner Kaskade was the evening’s headliner. Also spotted at Heart of Omnia, German soccer star Mesut Özil.
