John Gosselin brought his one-man circus to The Ivy this week, creating a swirling epicenter of star-rodgering hell among competing couch spuds and cameramen, no doubt. Speaking of those magic words, Gwen Stefani turned 40 with grace at Cecconi's. Then, not to be outdone by a tip-less Jane Adams, Randy Quaid was arrested for running out on his bill at Montecito's San Ysidro Ranch, a stunt the town's unofficial owner, Beanie Baby Billionaire Ty Warner, claims Quaid has also pulled at Warner's Biltmore and Bel-Air hotels. Where else have celebrities been dining, and occasionally dashing, in SoCal this week? Here's a look.
