Joe Jonas parties at Baoli (with friends, not brothers)


After shooting down rumors that he was addicted to heroin, Joe Jonas, of the recently broken up Jonas Brothers, was seen partying with six friends at an early, Black Swan-themed Halloween party Wednesday night at Baoli. Says our spy, “He was wearing a small black mask and was looking very healthy.” The group had a bottle of Absolut Elyx and Perrier Jouet Belle Epoque. Earlier that morning, Jonas joined his brothers on Good Morning America to explain that their break up was over a creative rift.

Jonas was not with model girlfriend Blanda Eggenschwiler, with whom he’s been seen a lot lately.

Model Adriana Lima stopped by the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show to check out the luxury boats and ended up falling in love. Lima was seen hanging out and taking photos with fans on a Zeelander 44 yacht, an almost million-dollar handcrafted boat. After the brief rendezvous, Zeelander’s executives, John Slate and Sietse Koopmans, offered Lima an invitation to a special dinner for yacht owners, which she happily accepted. After a hearty meal of steaks and, of course, salad, Lima proclaimed her love for the company — by purchasing a Zeelander 44.

    Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley no longer speak: Is it because of Scientology?

    Que paso? Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley used to be so close. They met as partners on Dancing with the Stars and stayed in touch but these days they no longer speak. “She stopped getting along with me,” Chmerkovskiy told Andy Cohen on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live. “I got a message now that I am associating with other people that she can't be associated with, I am no longer to be spoken with, and sorry, but it is what it is.” Jennifer Lopez, rumored to be dating the dancer, is besties with Leah Remini, who recently left the Church of Scientology, and that perhaps doesn’t sit well with Alley, who remains loyal to Tom Cruise’s church.
