We always suspected that hotels let celebrities do whatever they want during their hotel stays and this recent item about Jessica Simpson cooking Thanksgiving dinner, has us convinced.
According to People, JSimp was holed up in her hotel while in town for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade when she decided that she wanted to cook Thanksgiving dinner for her fiancé, Eric Johnson, and his family. The only problem was they are vegans. Oh wait, and she needed an oven.
But apparently, even that was not a problem as the Ritz-Carlton Central Park was ready to accommodate her every vegan Thanksgiving need. (We tracked down paparazzi photos to confirm the hotel.)
Simpson had to get creative to make Thanksgiving dinner for so many people at her hotel. "They had an oven brought into her suite," says the source. "She also used the hotel kitchen."
Just a few years ago, the sprawling Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia was on the brink of closing. While it looked like Marriott would come in and take over the resort, in the end, West Virginia's multi-millionaire Jim Justice swooped in and bought the property for just $20 million. And it looks like he found a way to make the property exciting again while at the same time, bring in some crazy revenue--he built a casino.
The Casino Club opened on Friday with loads of celebs in attendance. The Washington Post spied the following at the grand opening: Jennifer Garner, Ben Affleck, Jessica Simpson, Brooke Shields, Lionel Richie, Charles Barkley, Shaquille O'Neal, Jane Seymour, Debbie Reynolds, Raquel Welch, Tom Watson and Jack Nicklaus. J-Simp even got a special 30th birthday cake presented to her by Justice.
The Casino Club will definitely bring some glamour back into the resort which used to rely on its underground congressional bunker to draw in guests. The casino, also located underground, spans 102,000-sq.ft. with table games from blackjack to Texas Hold 'Em, slots, baccarat, roulette with an Asian restaurant and a bar on site along with a retail "avenue" with high-end shops like Brioni, Badgley Mishka and jeweler Roberto Coin.
So right now, you're probably thinking you'll wanna pop in for a quick round of poker on your next trip to West Virginai. Hold up, not so fast.
Drunk Make-up artists! Table8 Closes at Cooper Square! Jimmy Buffett's Buffet Hotel! Miley's Barely There Shorts!
It always seems that no matter how much Celebrity Scoop we write about in a given week, there's also lots more that we didn't have time to get to. So from now on, every Friday we'll be rounding up the week's Infamous Hotels. This weekly list will include hotels that celebrities visited (and it made the news) but also hotels that really up the "Eww" factor. This can easily done if you are Jessica Simpson's make-up artist and you get sloshed at the Sunset Tower Hotel.
· Sunset Tower Hotel: We knew the Sunset Tower took no bullshit from its guests or employees but now we know they will not tolerate make-up artists who get wasted and "disturb the peace." Mary Phillips, on the right here in JSimp's TweetPhoto, was arrested early this morning for being drunk in public, according to TMZ. Word is her BFF and client, Jessica Simpson tried to bail her out but was turned away because Phillips was too drunk to be let out. Hmmm...sounds like our kind of girl. [TMZ]
She stayed at the Taj Mahal Palace & Tower, which reopened last December after the devastating terrorist attacks, and had a party thrown for her by Bollywood actress Neha Dhupia at the Vie Lounge bar on Juhu Beach. According to the Daily Mail, she “fitted right in with India’s fashion elite.” Wonder if she cracked out the guitar as well?
Having gone down a storm and impressed everyone with her henna tattoo and bindi, she left Mumbai for London yesterday. We’re not jealous. Really.

Apparently she stayed at the Serena Hotel in Kampala and was “nice and unassuming - so much so, in fact, that she even gave guests a guitar recital at the hotel (maybe she should take up busking – it also says her group’s credit card was later declined at the airport).
Rooms here currently go for $242, but if you’re not on a Simpson-sized budget, Popbitch reckons that the Red Chilli Hideaway is the nicest budget gaff in Kampala. Got a better idea? Let us know below.

It's not been a very good year so far for Jessica Simpson. Aside from the fact that her boyfriend Tony Romo failed to make the Super Bowl, J-Simp made the headlines of every major gossip rag and site last week for showing up looking a tad "curvy" at a chili cook-off in Miami.
The fact that the media went hog wild talking about her recent weight gain and not about why she was singing at a chili cook-off is clear evidence of our society's ridiculous standards of women. The underlying message: It's ok to be a falling star who went from having your own televised specials to singing at country fairs and meat conventions so long as you remain a skinny falling star.
Fortunately, Jessica Simpson is not letting this affect her in the least. She was recently spotted at the Stoneleigh Hotel in Dallas with her mom and childhood Sunday school teachers sipping vodka sodas at the Bolla Bar. (Um...Sunday school teachers like vodka sodas? Where were they when we were growing up?)
Folks at the bar said Jessica was very sweet and low-key but most importantly, they said she "looked really great!" We know for a fact that Jess is a generous girl when it comes to picking up the tabs for her friends and co-workers and she's a very good tipper. If she can't seem to win America's heart with her figure, then she can certainly do it with her "sweet as pie" gratitude to hotel staffers.

Gotta love the ol' Gawker Stalker. Not only do we always stay abreast of where Gossip Girl is filming, but we get to see where our favorite (or least favorite, as the case may be) celebs are spotted -- and, many a time, stalky Gawker readers catch the celebs going in and out of hotels and we are able to deduce their fave places to spend the night while they're in the big city.
First up on our Hotel Stalking Tour of Manhattan (as tracked by the excellent Gawker Stalker)? None other than pop-diva-turned-country-star Jessica Simpson.
What does Jessica Simpson do when she has a new man in her life? Well, she makes sure that she is photographed with him at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.
JSimp and Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo hit up VIP club Teddy's to help celebrate her ex-assistant Cacee Cobb's 30th birthday on Saturday night. Since Jess is such a frequent visitior, perhaps would care to comment on our OpenThread about service at Thompson Hotels?

Who cares about Oscar nominations when two pop stars are taking their fake relationship one step further?
Us Weekly reports that Jessica Simpson has now joined John Mayer on tour for his Miami dates. But lil Jess need not stay in a tour bus. Nope, she's getting her freak on in the presidential suite at Four Seasons Miami.
If you want to know what it's like to stay at the Four Seasons from a normal person's perspective or if you have an actual boyfriend (not just for the cameras) that you would like to visit there with, then check out Michael de Zayas' recent review on the place.
