HEY, I THINK I SEE A CELEBRITY! All Chi-Town Sightings, Week Of 07/26
From time to time celebrities do step out of LA and New York to venture over to the windy city! They’re not always A-list, but what the heck, we’ll take what we can get. This week’s sightings:
• The Bachelorette star Jillian Harris and fiance Ed Swiderski visited Chicago, which happens to be Swiderski’s hometown. The pair dined at SushiSamba Rio with friends Thursday night. Harris was wearing her engagement ring and the couple appeared to be “very much in love”, according to eyewitnesses. And I, myself, have no doubt the two reality TV stars are “very much in love”…with publicity that is.
• Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig stayed at the The Four Seasons while they were in town doing research for their upcoming Broadway show A Steady Rain. They’ll be playing Chicago cops so they made an unannounced visit to Cook County Jail Criminal Courts. Jackman was also spotted at Joe’s, with singer Richard Marx, to check out the band KingBully.
The two then surprised the crowd by taking the stage to sing Marx’s adult-contemporary hit “Right Here Waiting”. And, of course, it isn’t any surprise that Jackman was also spotted working out with a personal trainer at The Gym at The James Hotel. After all, he does spend half his time at the beach without a shirt on.
• Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter were in town for The New York Yankees vs. Sox game. A-Rod shopped til he dropped at Ralph Lauren and Giorgio Armani on Thursday, before meeting with friends for lunch at Rosebud. On Saturday night, A-rod and Jeter both dined at Sunda. They have since adamantly denied that there were any banned substances in the California roll.
• Even though Jamie Foxx has been busy all summer traveling the country on his “Blame It” tour, he did manage to stop in Chi-Town for some R & R last week. He dined at Sunda two nights in a row and gave an unannounced performance at the Underground on Friday.
Sources say Foxx ordered Berry Chill yogurt for his entourage at the club. Boy, they’re really hardcore! Foxx was also spotted on Saturday night at Manor belting out “Happy Birthday” for his half-sister. Sounds like a good weekend. The only thing it was missing is a random 0ne-night stand!
