Spike Lee was spotted squeezing in a romantic dinner Friday with his wife at Umi at the Delano. The couple, in town for the American Black Film Festival, enjoyed two glasses of Moët Rosé to accompany their feast. Earlier in the day, rapper Drake was seen stopping by the hotel for a brief afternoon meeting with Lee, taking time for a photo with some members of the Saudi royal family currently in the hotel.

After a night of celebrating the Miami Heat winning the NBA championship, German soccer star Jérôme Boateng decided to continue the celebration on Friday evening, heading to South Beach for dinner at CATCH Miami . Boateng, who’s in town for a charity beach football match, was joined by a large group of friends “who enjoyed essentially everything on the menu,” dishes an insider. Following dinner, the group stopped next door to SL Miami where they were seated at a VIP table beside the DJ booth. Says our spy: “Boateng was clearly letting loose for the evening, hopping into the booth to take over for the night.” Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck joined the delightfully named “Fux Friday” revelry alongside Boateng, who was seen “popping bottles” until the place closed.

After their day at the SLS pool, Chris and Adrienne Bosh had dinner Saturday night at Zuma with a large group of friends. LeBron James stopped by the table but joined his manager Maverick Carter and friends at another table. Meanwhile in the lounge, singer Trey Songz was seen having a quick dinner.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe were seen Thursday having a date night at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek. They ate dinner at NYY Steak and gambled.

People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive, Channing Tatum, had dinner with 10 friends Sunday night at Prime 112. Channing and his group left the restaurant a little bit after 11 p.m. Tatum’s in town with Jamie Foxx promoting their new flick, White House Down. On Saturday, international soccer star Didier Drogba was seen dining at the celebrity meatery, as was Miami Heat player Norris Cole, having a late dinner at the restaurant before heading out.

On Sunday night, LeBron James was back at it again, this time at LIV. James and his crew partied while indulging in more Dom Perignon as multiple bottle parades were seen going to his table throughout the night.

Bravo’s at it again; this time a series about couples going through separation or divorce featuring mediator Vikki Ziegler offering asset appraisal. Casting agents are particularly interested in Miami and Boca Raton couples. “Vikki isn’t interested in the ‘why’ you separated, so you don’t have to worry about bringing up sore subjects. She just wants to be the facilitator in guiding you along your mediation,” says a casting agent. Auditions will be done via Skype. To get involved, email lauren@cornwellcasting.com.

    Attack of Sharknado 2: Oh yeah, there’s another one

    The idea of making a movie about a tornado that scoops up thousands of sharks and sends them flying through the air to chomp their way through a bevy of people, places and things sounds totally ridiculous. That didn’t stop Syfy from moving ahead with Sharknado, a movie that became a pop culture phenomenon last year. The mania reached such a fevered level that a sequel, Sharknado 2: The Second One, was ordered. It premieres at 9 p.m. Wednesday on Syfy.

    Bachelorette Andi Dorfman: I was attracted to Josh Murray from the beginning

    Bachelorette (no more) Andi Dorfman stopped by Good Morning America on Tuesday to show off her ABC swag (aka engagement ring) from former pro baseball player Josh Murray. The 27-year-old lawyer and her 29-year-old grinning fiance held hands and looked pretty happy. “I definitely knew there was that chemistry and attraction with him,” Dorfman said of their first meeting. “I'm definitely an overthinker, though, so it took me till the very end.” Plus she had to break up with 24 guys first. No wedding date has been set yet; the couple need to do more publicity first.
