Ashley Tisdale got a hand in the gym – from her personal trainer. The actress sported gray workout clothes as she worked out with weights and focused on strength training at Equinox West Hollywood. She also sipped water and listened intently to instructions from her trainer.

Mya had more to celebrate than her near-perfect score on Dancing with the Stars. The R&B star threw herself an early 30th birthday party at West Hollywood’s Coco de Ville with friends like Lance Bass and Sabrina Bryan and DWTS castmates. Taking a seat at her usual table on the dance floor – which was decked out with balloons – Mya mixed and mingled with revelers, taking pictures with anybody who asked. The deejay played her hit “Ghetto Superstar” on a loop, and Mya also received the club’s signature cupcake tower studded with sparklers.

Jenny McCarthy, smiling alongside boyfriend Jim Carrey while attending An Evening for Kids, a benefit event for UCLA’s Early Childhood Partial Hospitalization Program at a private residence in Pacific Palisades, Calif. The couple looked “relaxed” and enjoyed the music performed by Joss Stone, the Who’s Roger Daltrey and Dave Stewart.

• After premiering his comedy Couples Retreat, Jason Bateman celebrated . . . with a burger and fries! The actor headed to The Counter in Studio City, Calif., along with 16 friends – including his wife and daughter. “They were having a great time and just relaxing on the day of his premiere,” says an onlooker.

Robert De Niro didn’t stick to the menu while dining at Spiaggia in Chicago. Instead, the actor and his friend decided to wing it – and asked the chef to surprise them with a five-course meal.
