Notorious NBA bad boy Dennis Rodman hosted a Halloween soiree, Rodmania, Friday night at Gulfstream Park. The racing and casino hotspot welcomed the outspoken star whose creative juices seemed to be running dry. Rodman showed up in drag as a “woman” and partied from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m. with South Beach tastemaker Elaine Lancaster, adult film star Mary Carey and Miami Heat swingman Ricky Davis, among many others. DJ Irie was there to spin beats and prizes were awarded for sexiest costume (Raggedy Ann) and most creative costume (an aquarium). Rodman was also in Pompano last week launching The High Heels Poker Tour, a ladies-only league, where he fit right in and played a few hands at the Texas Hold ‘Em tourney. Looks like Rodman is sparking a new trend, possibly looking for new ways the kook can blow his baller dollars?
Sexy Ciara hit the beach this past week to celebrate Halloween and her 22nd birthday Monday at Cameo. The songstress sported an extra-special, extra-long, multi-toned birthday weave along with a hot black dress, not indulging in the dress up trend of Hallow’s Eve. The multi-million dollar R&B princess left the drama at home for the evening, heading out with an entourage so small, you could count her company on one hand. The starlet 1, 2 stepped into the club at about 1:30 a.m. where she enjoyed a rumored “complimentary” bar tab (tip not included). The dancing diva was all smiles on the floor and partied until around 3:15 a.m. before heading out.
