A hip hop holiday at Prime 112

 

lank@aol.com

Some of hip hop’s biggest names were spotted Sunday night at Prime 112. Drake was seen dining in the private wine room with friends, while Rick Ross was also in the building dining with a large group. On his way to the table, Drake made a few fans’ holidays as he posed with a couple for pictures.

Leading the band of musicians there on Saturday night, however, was none other than Late Show With David Letterman’s Paul Shaffer, having dinner with his family.

Dennis Rodman was seen Saturday night at North Miami’s all male strip club Swinging Richards where, according to our snitch, “He slapped my friend in the ass as he walked by him. [The friend] asked him who was his favorite stripper, but he said nothing to him.”

Here’s your chance to be involved in a highly rated reality show for a change: CBS 4 and Gulfstream Park are hosting an open casting call from 6 p.m. to midnight Dec. 27 at Gulfstream for The Amazing Race. CBS4 photographers will shoot audition videos, but each candidate/team member must audition together. Each team of two should also plan to speak for two minutes maximum. A signed and completed video release form available at http://miami.cbslocal.com/2012/11/30/amazing-race-casting-call-south-florida/ is also a must.

Another casting taking place, this time Jan. 5-6 for Telemundo’s La Voz Kids ( The Voice Kids), a singing competition airing in the Spring and featuring singers ages 7-14. The winner will receive a recording contract with Universal Music and a scholarship. All those interested should register at www.lavozkids.com or email castings@lavozkids.com for more information.

    Amber Valletta comes clean: I’m a raging addict

    Amber Valletta isn’t playing the blame game. The model-actress (Hitch, Revenge, Transporter 2) talked candidly in a video for MindBodyGreen.com and takes full responsibility for her addiction to drugs and alcohol. In the clip, Valletta says she started young, sniffing markers while growing up in Oklahoma, then graduated to the hard stuff when she began posing for magazines. Even though she has been sober for 25 years, the self proclaimed raging addict still has moments when she wants to “distract herself” because she’s “uncomfortable being a human being.” The 40-year-old mother of one, who is married to volleyball player Chip McCaw, credits looking inward constantly to stay healthy.
