Bill Clinton was seen Monday having lunch with business types at The Cafe at Books & Books on Lincoln Road. While briefly in town, he managed to give a nice endorsement to pal and Miami Beach mayoral candidate Philip Levine.

Rick Ross, debuting a much slimmer frame, hosted the “Prestige Sunday” party at BAMBOO Miami Beach celebrating DJ Camilo’s birthday. Also there for the birthday celebration: Flo Rida, Busta Rhymes, FABOLOUS and French Montana. The packed house was apparently the place to be, with a line outside stretching for blocks.

Singer Luis Miguel had dinner Sunday at the Forge with, says our spy, “a beautiful girl.” The duo dined in an area specially opened for them. Fitness drill sergeant Jillian Michaels was also at the iconic Miami Beach restaurant, where she ate rather healthfully — salmon and crispy cauliflower.

X Factor judge Kelly Rowland had dinner last Friday at Juvia, while Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter was there Sunday night. Jeter, along with retired Yankee Jorge Posada, was seen with a large group of friends Monday night at Zuma. Also at Zuma Monday were Mr. and Mrs. Pharrell Williams, along with a group. On Tuesday, perma-tanned George Hamilton was seen having a relaxed dinner with pals.

Jeter and Posada were also spotted at SLS Hotel South Beach, having dinner at Katsuya and later making their way to Hyde Beach, where they enjoyed bottle service and hung out with friends and other Hyde patrons.

Ricky Martin will join 11 other honorees on Nov. 6 at the Ritz-Carlton, South Beach for the 12th Annual Poder Business Awards.

“Ricky Martin is a fitting honoree as he has made his mark not only in entertainment, but also as a beacon of hope and support for the worldwide fight against child exploitation,” said director Nicolas Ibarguen. Other nominees include Chef Lorena Garcia and Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. presiden t Jaime Cohen Szulc. The awards will be telecast live on Poder 360 at poder360.com.

    Adam Richman starts fresh with ‘Food Fighters’

    NBC is taking a chance on Adam Richman. The network is going full steam ahead with Food Fighters, debuting 8 p.m. Tuesday. The Man V Food star, who plays host on the new cooking competition, was extremely polite on a recent conference call, a far cry from last month when Richman engaged with various social media users who opposed the slimmed-down foodie’s use of the hashtag #thinspiration, a pro-eating disorder term. Using expletives to lash out, he even suggested one woman “grab a razor blade and draw a bath.” Travel Channel subsequently shelved another one of his shows, Man Finds Food.
