Continuing his liberation-from-the-band bender taking him to Baoli, LIV and SL on Thursday, Joe Jonas, staying in the penthouse suite at The Riviera on South Beach, was seen Friday night at the Mondrian for a party hosted by British singer and part time Mondrian resident Craig David. Afterward, at the ungodly hour of 4 a.m., Jonas and friends stopped by Maxine’s Bistro & Bar at The Catalina Hotel for a late night meal before his early morning flight back to LA. Our spy tells us that while Jonas was nice to fans, he tried to stay under the radar, “politely denying requests for photos and not drinking the entire night.” As for any amorous behavior despite the absence of his model girlfriend, we were told, “There was a girl with him who was a model but not his girlfriend. She was very touchy feely with him and wasn’t happy that there were others hanging out with them in the group.” Jonas was also seen Friday (“breaking news,” quipped a publicist, “Joe Jonas drinks iced tea”) with friends at Bianca at the Delano.

On Saturday night, actor Jason Statham was seen having dinner at Bianca with producer pal Steve Chasman. Statham went unnoticed until he decided to take a walk down to the beach club where he was spotted and did the requisite posing for pix with fans.

LPGA Tour golfer Michelle Sung Wie was spotted Friday night at Hyde Beach at the SLS Hotel South Beach enjoying some cocktails and dancing with friends to the sounds of DJ Tony G.

A friendly Emily Haines, lead singer of Canadian new wave band Metric, was spotted sharing nigiri with her husband Sunday at Zuma’s sushi counter. On Friday, fashion designer Alexander Wang was seen there with friends, sporting all black and “full of energy.”

Flo Rida took over the VIP section Friday night at Cameo, ordering several bottles of Moet Rose and Ace of Spades and high fiving fans who visited his table to pay respect.

The InterContinental Miami Make-A-Wish Ball Saturday night was a surreal, charitable circus of sorts, drawing out a list of philanthropists, celebrities and reality television types. Among those spotted were former governor turned gubernatorial hopeful Charlie Crist; producer/director Brett Ratner; headliner Adam Lambert, whose mix of reggae, rock and old school 80s hits entertained the coutured crowd; the legendary Don King, fashion designer Traver Rains, whose runway show sashayed late into the night; Burn Notice actress Gabrielle Anwar, who conducted the live auction, and Queen of Versailles documentary subjects Jackie and David Siegel, seen trading reality war stories with Lea and Roy Black. The event raised $2,020,421 after expenses.

    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.
