Kentucky Derby Report: Celebs Ensure No One Cares About The Horses
Street Sense may have walked away the winner of the 133rd Kentucky Derby, but you can't put a horse on the cover of US Weekly. Throughout the weekend, celebrity guests lined up for mint juleps and donned giant hats to fit in with old-school VIPs like Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, starting with Friday night's Barnstable Brown gala.
Better known as the place to meet the former Playboy model of your dreams, the gala played host to athletes like Bode Miller and Apolo Anton Ohno and stars like Melissa Joan Hart. Nick Lachey even had the cojones to bring new girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo after he and ex-wife Jessica Simpson had done the derby. Post-race, Kevin Federline used some of his remaining seconds of fame to get into the Stuff magazine VIP Issue party, hosted by Taryn Manning.
If they weren't in Loovull, they were in Las Vegas catching the Oscar de la Hoya-Floyd Mayweather boxing match. Jim Carrey took girlfriend Jenny McCarthy there to see the fight, and Eva Longoria cheered for de la Hoya (and hit his after-party at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, even though he didn't win).
