On location for the last month and a half filming Miami Vice, Jamie Foxx and Colin Farrell haven’t been shy about taking advantage of South Florida’s plentiful partying opportunities. On May 31, Foxx watched the first half of a Miami Heat playoff game with Will Smith at the Delano Hotel, then the two joined Farrell at the Prime One Twelve restaurant to help him ring in his 29th birthday. On June 4, Farrell and Foxx headed to the Casa Casuarina mansion with pals and a dozen Vice cast and crew members for a bash honoring both Foxx’s Oscar year and Farrells b-day. A band played Ray Charles songs while the actors tossed back Rémy Martins. Guests such as Lil’ Kim sang “Happy Birthday” as Farrell blew out candles on a rum cake. Later, a solo Foxx chatted up some women at the Shore Club’s Red Room and borrowed a camera to take pictures of them. He then capped off the evening by partying in the VIP area until 4 a.m.


As any desperate housewife can tell you, never go to a meal with charitable donors without appropriate presents. On May 30, Teri Hatcher had dinner at the Ivy in West Hollywood with a woman and her husband (and another guest of theirs) who had paid $100,000 benefitting the Starlight Starbright Children’s Foundation charity to dine with her. Before the meal, Hatcher stopped by L.A.’s chic Kitson boutique to buy gifts for her dates. Among the items she picked up: an I [heart] Shopping mirror (S20), a Magnolia Bakery cookbook ($25) and T-shirts saying—of course—”I [heart] Desperate Housewives” ($48).


Though she’s still ironing out plans for her July engagement party, Nicole Richie already knows exactly what kind of entertainment she’ll have at her wedding to fiancé Adam Goldstein (a.k.a. DJ AM). “I want to have elephant rides and swans,” says Richie. Horse-drawn carriages and a joint salsa performance with the groom are also possibilities, though Goldstein’s not a fan of the latter. That’s not all they disagree on. “He wants, like, five people at our wedding—our close family and friends,” Richie told us at the MTV Movie Awards. “Me? I want everyone to come.” While no date has been set yet, pals Lindsay Lohan and Nicky Hilton will both be bridesmaids.


Decisions, decisions: After Paris Hilton winnowed the 10 engagement rings that fiancé Paris Latsis had selected down to two, she took them out to the clubs for a test drive last week. With one ring in her purse and the other worn rockside down to keep it hidden, Hilton only showed the sparklers to pals. “Both were gorgeous,” says one. On June 5, Hilton tentatively settled on a 24-carat yellow diamond ring—one carat for each of her 24 years. But still unsure the next day, Hilton looked at other rings upwards of 25 carats—and worth up to $17 million—at a prominent Rodeo Drive-area jeweler.
