Couples Watch: Garth & Tricia, Ellen & Portia ...
Plus: All the latest scoop on star romance
• Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood, hanging poolside at the Venus Pool Club in Las Vegas during a private event for the Garth Brooks Teammates for Kids Foundation. The country music supercouple mingled and chatted with party guests – and even snapped photos with fans.
• Ellen DeGeneres and fiancée Portia de Rossi, browsing at the Monique Lhuillier boutique in West Hollywood. Could the happy couple be scouting out wedding dresses?
• Katherine Heigl, dancing like wild during husband Josh Kelley‘s concert at L.A.’s Canyon Club. “She was in middle of crowd but would dance alone through people when she really liked a song,” an onlooker tells us. While the Grey’s Anatomy star – in a white top and jeans – mingled with the crowd all night, she would also go up to the front so her hubby could see her from the stage.
• Sean Penn and Robin Wright Penn, looking like a “new couple in love,” at Locanda Portofino, an Italian restaurant on Santa Monica’s Montana Avenue. Penn held court on the patio with director Oliver Stone, the star of Stone’s new movie, W actor Josh Brolin, and a few friends. But Wright Penn had the best seat at the table: on her husband’s lap. The actress sported a black cocktail dress, and she laughed loudly while sharing wine with her dinner guests.
• Paris Hilton, stopping into Harry Morton‘s Pink Taco restaurant in Century City, Calif., with Benji Madden for dinner before hitting the movies. The couple ordered the Mexican corn, tamales, beef nachos, plantains, a virgin piña colada – and took off with leftovers.
• Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon, carrying colorful shopping bags while strolling through East Hampton, N.Y., with partner Christine Marinoni. Nixon sported white pants – and looked dressed up for the walk, a source tells us.
• Michelle Pfeiffer, drinking champagne while catching a performance of Crazy Horse Paris at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand with husband David E. Kelley and six other friends, including her sister Dedee Pfeiffer.
