Vanessa Hudgens and Shenae Grimes got in on the bikini action while in Hawaii over the weekend for the opening on Waikiki's new Edition hotel. Whitney Port led the two-piece parade during her marathon PDA session with boyfriend Ben Nemtin, but Shenae was all about bonding with friends on Saturday as she took self-portraits and hung out with Taryn Manning. Vanessa skipped out on another afternoon of poolside lounging and instead opted to try surfing yesterday. She's familiar with the sport after watching Zac Efron give it a go in Australia, though he wasn't on hand to offer constructive criticism as Vanessa braved the waves.

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt's frequent photo ops provided inspiration as yet another artist turned her into artwork. Last night the couple headed to a Hollywood art gallery event, "Lights! Camera! Election!," where Heidi showed off an artistic depiction of her ridiculous grocery store poses modeled after the famous Obama "Hope" piece. The couple laughed and smiled their way around the rooms, stopping to kiss countless times for the cameras and imitate a picture of Barbie for president. It's no secret who these two are voting for, but as always the most important campaign is for themselves.

Christina Aguilera came out in LA last night to host a Rock the Vote party at the Esquire House Hollywood Hills. Jordan was on her arm, both with wine glass in hand, to pose on the red carpet though all Xtina seemed to be able to manage was a smirk. She was joined by partygoers including Kourtney and Kim Kardashian off her first week of Dancing with the Stars as well as Guitar Hero/Rock Band designers Aly and AJ. Christina caused some controversy earlier this year with her ad for the organization and it looks like she's ready to keep rocking the vote before the impending election day.

I have so had enough of Adrian hanging out with Paris 24/7. I understand that he is making some sort of documentary about the paparazzi's relationship with celebrities, but I'm starting to think that this has moved beyond a professional relationship with these two. Blech. Obviously Adrian is still cute as can be, but something about his new BFF-ship with the heiress makes him less desirable. Moving on, Adrian was joined by his Entourage costar Kevin Connolly at a party at Uncle Buck's Gallery in LA last night. Now if only Adrian had a real life E in his life to tell him that a relationship with the notorious starlet might not be the best career move.

It's no surprise that many of Paris' recent philanthropic efforts have involved partying, but at least she's being charitable. Last night she hit up an event to benefit eating disorders called "Feed the Models, Save the World" and was more than happy to speak out about her new outlook on giving back to the community. She said,
"I feel like everyone who's a human being in this world has a responsibility to give back and make this world a better place. I feel if everyone bans together -- no matter if it's for children, the environment or for animals we can all make a difference."
It's great for Paris that she has found a way to combine her favorite love of partying with good causes. Maybe using her celebrity at charitable events will change her image slightly since it's better than seeing her dancing on poles in clubs.

Louis Vuitton threw a party and the LBDs were out with a vengeance. Aaaand Tara Reid. Well, the rest of the ladies -- Rosario, Emmy, Taryn -- looked fabulous for the party. Apparently Tara didn't get the memo. Well, uh, positive light: she's a million times classier than she was a few years back? Yays?

Some cute little ladies came out to celebrate at a poolside BBQ at the Roosevelt Hotel. What were they celebrating? Why Bartles & Jaymes Wine Coolers, naturally! Keep it classy, Los Angeles. Carmen and Sophia looked pretty darn cute while Elisha was a little bit too PINK (which is saying a lot, because obviously we love pink around these parts). Hopefully the ladies were able to get some food -- wine coolers on an empty stomach are never a good call. Mmmmm, Summer = BBQs. Delicious.
