Scene in the Tropics

Leo, pals

With Leonardo DiCaprio on an extended Miami vacation, members of his entourage of famous guy friends have been stopping by to pay homage to him and, more likely says our spy, “to meet and make out with some of Miami’s hot women,” which is what DiCaprio has reportedly been seen doing on more than one occasion. We’ve seen Bradley Cooper, Gerard Butler, Mel Gibson, Jonah Hill, Lukas Haas and, most recently, Tobey Maguire, who was with DiCaprio having dinner Wednesday night, “vegan style” at Hakkasan at the Fontainebleau. DiCaprio was also seen having lunch poolside Monday at the Delano and later that night with Butler at their dining room away from home, Bianca.

Rec Room rewound a little bit Thursday night as Salt-N-Pepa’s Spinderella took over the turntables for a crowd, including Will Smith, who had dinner earlier at the Gale South Beach’s Dolce Italian restaurant with friends, including Tracey Mourning. Hours later, Mourning was arrested in Coral Gables on a DUI charge. The Rec Room retro-fabulousness continues Saturday night as hip-hop pioneer Grandmaster Flash spins.

Flo Rida was seen shopping last week in the men’s department of Macy’s in downtown Miami. A spy says that he came in saying that he needed clothes for the Super Bowl and bought about $1,000 worth of threads on the spot.

Seen working out Tuesday night at Equinox on South Beach: the Winkelvoss twins, most famous for suing and settling with Facebook over claims that Mark Zuckerberg stole their idea.

In town for his concert Friday in Sunrise, Andrea Bocelli was overheard Tuesday night singing in between bites of sushi at the Sushi Lounge at St. Regis Bal Harbour.

In town for his game against the Miami Heat, Khloe Kardashian’s husband and former Heat player Lamar Odom had dinner with a few guy friends Wednesday at Prime Italian, where he was noticed by basketball fans and Kardashian fans (not an oxymoron). Continuing his meaty tour of South Beach, Odom and four pals had dinner Thursday night at STK Miami.

Thursday night at Prime 112 was athlete central as usual with Chauncey Billups and Willie Green of the Los Angeles Clippers, Jason Heyward of the Atlanta Braves, and Robinson Cano of the New York Yankees.

Actor/comedian Kevin Hart spent the night Thursday at downtown Miami’s EPIC Hotel.

Former U.S. Sen. Mel Martinez of Florida had dinner with two friends Tuesday at Caffe Abbracci.

    Valerie Harper: I’m not ‘cancer free’

    Sounded too good to be true, and it was: Valerie Harper is not “cancer free,” as Closer Weekly reported. There is no cure for leptomeningeal carcinomatosis — cancer of the membranes around Harper’s brain. The veteran actress says in a statement that the magazine’s reporter misunderstood when she said her most recent full-body scan was clean and that the cancer had not spread.
