Some of the celebs flitting in and out included Jason Lewis, (Samantha’s love from the series, Sex and the City, and the film, Sex and the City (now known as #1), Hayden Panettiere, AJ Buckley (CSI: New York), Perrey Reeves (Entourage), Jessica Lowndes (90210), Jared Harris (Mad Men) and new girlfriend, Allegra Riggio, Morgan Spurlock, (Supersize Me), Malin Ackerman, producer Christine Peters and Jamie-Lynn Sigler.
