Ashlee Simpson, giving Pete Wentz a lap dance in the VIP section of Jet Nightclub in Las Vegas. The two, who were spotted cozying up together at L.A. hot spot Parc two days earlier, only had eyes for each other. “Ashlee was so fixated on Pete that she did not even pay attention when the deejay gave her a shout-out on the microphone and even played one of her songs,” an onlooker tells us.

Britney Spears, getting a manicure at the Wynn Hotel in Vegas and later having dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe’s Nobu DASH] the same restaurant where ex Kevin Federline ate over the weekend. The singer – sporting an auburn bob wig, oversized sunglasses and a cowboy hat – sat at a corner table with a girlfriend and had a 20-minute meal before heading back to her hotel. “She looked good,” says a source.

Fergie, celebrating her belated 32nd birthday with a family-filled party in a private room at Morton’s, The Steakhouse in Santa Ana, Calif. The Black Eyed Peas singer (whose actual b-day was on March 28) and boyfriend Josh Duhamel greeted guests – including her sister Dana, her mother, father, stepfather and grandmother – by the restaurant’s front door. On the menu: crab legs, oysters, scallops and chocolate souffle – as well as a birthday serenade.

Reese Witherspoon, having a girls’ night out (without new man Jake Gyllenhaal) at Beverly Hills eatery Mr. Chow. The actress and five pals feasted on squab with lettuce and water dumplings and giggled the night away. At one point, Witherspoon clutched one of her friend’s hands as she listened intently to a story. Also making the scene: Mischa Barton, who joked around with her dinner companion, celeb stylist Kim Kardashian.

Shanna Moakler, pretending to spin some tunes in the deejay booth at Pure Nightclub in Sin City as she celebrated her 32nd birthday belatedly (her actual b-day is on March 28) with four female pals. “She was smiles all night and really bubbly,” says an onlooker about Moakler, who wore her wedding ring.
