PARIS MAKES MERRY
PARIS HILTON turned into quite the Scrooge Dec. 18, when cops turned up at her West Hollywood home during a rollicking Christmas party. The heiress, not wanting to risk a noise violation, screamed, “Everyone I’m not friends with has to leave!” Free to stay for the pizza and open bar? Pals like FERGIE and NICOLE RICHIE. Hilton flew solo, but love was still in the air. KIMBERLY STEWART got cozy with LINDSAY LOHAN‘s ex HARRY MORTON while NICKY HILTON kept warm with DAVID KATZENBERG near the outdoor fire pit.
Who needs a boyfriend? Newly single JENNIFER ANISTON spent Christmas Eve with her best pal COURTENEY COX ARQUETTE ARQUETTE (star of FX’s new series Dirt) at Mastro’s Steakhouse in Beverly Hills. The BFFs shared sizzling steaks, creamed corn and sauteed mushrooms with Cox’s husband, DAVID ARQUETTE, and his sisters PATRICIA and ROSANNA. (Two-year-old Coco Arquette came along too.) Says a fellow diner: “They were all having a jolly good time laughing and talking.”
Christmas cuddles: JULIA ROBERTS and DANNY MODER held hands and snuggled during a Dec. 23 yuletide concert at the Anaconda Bar near their Taos, N.Mex., ranch. On hand to support local crooner Michael Hearne, the couple seemed “relaxed and happy,” says a concertgoer.
CHRISTINA AGUILERA celebrated her 26th birthday Dec. 20 as any diva would—hitting L.A. hot spot Hyde with husband JORDAN BRATMAN for Veuve Clicquot and gifts from Jimmy Choo.
BRUCE WILLIS picked up some stylish duds at Marc Jacobs in West Hollywood on Dec. 17. But the actor had more than fashion on his mind. Turns out Willis was just killing time until daughter Scout, 15, finished her shift at the Marc by Marc Jacobs store next door.
