Cassie Ventura, recording artist and girlfriend of Diddy, was spotted Wednesday at the SLS South Beach, posing in a hot yellow bikini for a Ciroc photo shoot. Sean “Diddy” Combs, who is brand ambassador for the vodka, stopped by the session twice throughout the day to check on how things were going and to chat with Ventura. Spies tell us, “They were very sweet to each other.” Also in attendance was Janice Combs, Diddy’s mom.

Colombian soccer star Radamel Falcao was seen Tuesday night having dinner at Prime 112. The following night, Brazilian soccer team defender Dani Alves was spotted at Zuma, relaxing with friends and his agent.

Something to look forward to in November besides hopefully cooler weather: the filming of Ballers, the HBO series exploring the lives of current and former football players executive produced by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and his Pain & Gain co-star Mark Wahlberg. The show stars Johnson, Omar Benson Miller, Denzel Washington’s son John David Washington, Rob Corddry, Troy Garity, Donovan Carter, Jazmyn Simon, Taylor Cole and LeToya Luckett.

Model Reid Heidenry, best known recently as the new boyfriend of model Nina Agdal, was seen having a boys’ night out Thursday at the Shore Club penthouse for the Rico Love-hosted celebration of Grey Goose’s latest flavored vodka, Le Melon.

If commission was based on ratings, the realty agents on Million Dollar Listing Miami would be pretty broke. Bravo’s latest attempt at a successful Miami reality show is proving to be a bust, according to former Real Housewives of NYC star-turned-ratings blogger Simon van Kempen. Kempen reports that Wednesday’s episode of Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live featuring the Million Dollar Listing Miami cast “became the lowest rated of the 121 WWHL episodes to have aired in this calendar year. With insipid ratings for their freshman season and then this lowly rated WWHL appearance, Chad, Sam and Chris better hope the real estate careers take off as their TV ones surely won’t.”
