Floyd Mayweather was spotted with an “extensive entourage,” says our spy, Wednesday night at b2 miami downtown. After arriving in a black Rolls Royce with “two attractive ladies” on his arm, Mayweather and his crew were escorted up to b2’s hospitality suite where they enjoyed a privately catered meal from the hotel’s gastro pub, Biscayne Tavern. On Thursday night, Mayweather was spotted with numerous bodyguards at the Aventura Mall, where he was seen checking out the Apple store.

LeBron James’ wife Savannah Brinson was seen Monday at Zuma, catching up with girlfriend Jenine Howard (Juwan’s wife), over a sushi lunch. Martina Navratilova and a friend had a relaxed dinner Tuesday in the restaurant’s sake lounge, where they opted for a tasting menu for the full Zuma experience. On Wednesday, singer/songwriter/record producer Prince Royce was seen there, sucking down baby back ribs with friends.

Governor Rick Scott was once again seen Wednesday night at his favorite Miami spot, Caffe Abbracci. He was there with a group of business associates.

The government may not be the only thing to shut down. The Real Housewives of Miami continues its perilous plummet with just 653,000 viewers, down from 812,000 last week, according to Bravo Ratings. The blog also says that Monday night’s episode had the lowest rating of all its 32 previous episode. “It’s not long for this world,” says a television insider.

    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.
