You’d be happy too if you escaped The Hills.
Proof of the long tail of The Hills: Brody Jenner night is still a thing. The man who starred in a series called Bromance (never forget) is back at the scene of the crime of turning 30 when he hosts the evening at Hyde. Click for more words and pictures »
We’d actually like to see the 10,000-word invective the real Hunter S. would write about this.
Because Alice Cooper was busy that night, Hyde Bellagio brought in Marilyn Manson for their Tuesday night Halloween party. He wore his “Liza Minelli dressed like a Columbine shooter” costume. But we know your secret, Mary. You’re just waiting for your shot with a minor-league ballclub.
Manson’s fiancee, Lindsay Usich, was with him with a group of friends, who got to see him take the mic and rap along to Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z’s “Holy Grail,” before he pulled skull decorations off the wall and started hurling them into the crowd. Which is the kind of spirited, anarchic mayhem you can get into when you’re the Antichrist superstar.
After all of that, he landed at Crazy Horse III’s afterhours with Lil Jon. Which, you know, “Marilyn Manson and Lil Jon tour strip clubs” would easily rocket to the top of our new favorite reality shows.
Just in case she forgets her own name.
Well, if Kourtney Kardashian taking sips from a champagne flute is enough to disprove pregnancy rumors, then Kourtney Kardashian isn’t pregnant. You know, unless she switched out the champagne for ginger ale. But that kind of carefully calculated media manipulation seems beneath a Kardashian.
The eldest of the Kardashian sisters took to Instagram while at Hyde Saturday night to show off her bubbly-imbibing prowess. She partied with actress Malika Haqq, drinking Dom at 2 a.m., probably just happy to be somewhere where it’s highly unlikely Scott Disick could drop a chainsaw on her.
Welcome to being old, Brody.
Bromance star Brody Jenner (a thing you can actually pay money to watch on your computer!) was at Hyde Saturday night to celebrate his 30th birthday with a bunch of friends and not a single step-Kardashian.
He was there with friends, and when his obligatory cake came up, Jenner flung a chunk at another one of his buddies, touching off a cake war. Between this and Steve Aoki, cake is the new champagne shower. Speaking of bubbly, Champagne King Don Johnson was spotted at a nearby table, while Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett turned up and swung by the table. Golfer Tommy Armour III stopped by as well, though not in any kind of fanciful pants. What’s event he point of being a golfer if you don’t have any fanciful pants?

Scott Disick put on a tuxedo and called his birthday party “Lord Disick’s 30th,” which is a thing people do. Besides, “Terrifying Wax Statue Marks 30th Anniversary of Magically Coming to Life” was a little wordy for the posters.
Kourtney Kardashian, clearly compelled by the spell the evil wizard put on her to spend her life chained to a crudely constructed megalomaniacal automaton, was with him while future Menendez children Mason and Penelope stayed at home.
Kris Jenner heard there was going to be a camera within 50 yards of the Hyde shindig on Sunday, so she came out too. Rob Kardashian played it cool and ducked the spotlight, though he did say he was flirting with the idea of spending six days in Vegas without hoisting a cocktail. We’re pretty sure that’s technically illegal, but we need to double check with Oscar Goodman first. Noted fan of juries Joe Francis also got in on the action, to the surprise of none.
Disick got in the booth with DJ Reach to rap along to Rihanna’s “Diamonds,” where he found himself really identifying with the song’s titular cold, hard, colorless allotrope of carbon.
Also on Sunday, the crew dined at Fix, where Kourtney drank only water. So feel free to start any and all pregnancy speculation that you’d like. Rob headed over to 1 Oak to catch FloRida after having been there for Snoop the night before.

Do you want to see Ryan Cabrera and Ryan Cabrera’s hair tonight at Hyde for free? Of course you do, assuming you’re a chick under 28. You can score yourself free admission and a cocktail if you RSVP over at SPYONvegas.com. Which is just the justification you need to be the creepy old guy going to hang around all those young girls.

Carla Pellegrino played host to Britney Spears on Saturday, when the singer was in at Meatball Spot along with new boyfriend David Lucado. On Friday, she was at the big One Night for One Drop shindig at O, with a pre-show party at Hyde. Over the last week, the rumors of her finally getting a residency deal done have heated up, so maybe she’s finally set to have her Elvis moment. Well, her other Elvis moment after the erratic behavior, weight gain and questionable entourage. Weirdly enough, Elvis started playing the International 15 years after he broke through, while January 2014 will mark the 15th anniversary of …Baby One More Time. Also, Britney had a secretary named Lincoln and Elvis had a secretary named Kennedy.
Yo dawg, we heard you like tequila, so we put a … wait, that’s a terrible idea.
The never-not-delightfully-ridiculous Xzibit was at Hyde Saturday night for a private-party launch of his new Bonita Platinum Tequila. And of course, he brought in Snoop and Dr. Dre. Probably by promising them brand new Lincolns with a fully-functioning grow room built right into the back.
Eventually, in full tux and everything, X would jump onto the mic and rap a little for the crowd. And he didn’t even bring Mad Mike to wire the tequila bottles with LED lights? It’s like we don’t even know you anymore, Xzibit.
Does Skrillex know that girl took his glasses?
British songstress and former British X Factor winner Leona Lewis brought a group of girls with her to Hyde on Saturday night. Because with American Idol auditions in town and various America’s Got Talent performers doing a seven-week run at Palazzo, you can never have enough competition reality winners collected in any one place. We’re kind of surprised Ruben Studdard didn’t sense what was going on, like a cat hearing a can opener.
Over/under on number of times “brah” was thrown around at this table? 54.
Human foam-core cutout of an actual human Adrian Grenier was at Hyde Friday night, blowing off steam before the Entourage movie begins filming. Because sometimes The Secret really works, and when you put out into the universe that the only thing you need to make your life complete is an Entourage movie, you actually get an Entourage movie. Thanks, The Secret.
Grenier, who was there with True Blood’s Jamie Gray Hyder, was asked about an Obama cameo in the movie and said, “If he would just deal with those pesky Republicans, maybe he’d have some time to be on Entourage.” Zing! Oh, how it must sear Mitt Romney to the very soul to be so thoroughly zung.
We’ll give him credit for this: After he played a track from The Skins, the Brooklyn band he produces, he put on Nirvana’s “Lithium.” Which has to mark the first time any club has ever forced its patrons to awkwardly jam to a downbeat grunge anthem.
