Okay, I've been at the Fox party at Spago for almost two hours, and I'm ready to bolt.

It's Wolfgang Puck's famous Beverly Hills restaurant, so it's no surprise the food is delicious. There's shrimp cocktail, mini-cheeseburgers, plenty of caviar and salmon pizza.

But where are the celebs?

Oh, there's Brad Garrett and Joely Fisher. Kiefer Sutherland is doing the red carpet.

None of them is Simon Cowell. I wanna hear what he has to say about Ryan Seacrest's Emmy hosting debut, but there's no Cowell in sight.

Paris Hilton: Direct TV Party

Okay, just got an email from Planet Gossip's Matt Donnelly. Mel B (aka Scary Spice) is across town at DirectTV's 100 party. So is Evan Handler from Showtime's new hit Californication (who's just signed on to reprise his role as Charlotte's husband Harry in the Sex and the City movie).

Paris Hilton just showed up at DirectTV. Time for me to zoom over there. Besides, no Cowell here. Paris Hilton, here I come.
