At least one of Jessica Alba’s friends is willing to take the fall for her.

Alba and some pals did some club-hopping last night at Hollywood hot spots Bar Deluxe and Bardot—where Jess grooved to a Prince song on the dance floor.

At the end of the evening, says an eyewitness, one unlucky gal took a spill while trying to help shield their famous friend from the paparazzi. Fortunately, no one was injured—except maybe her pal's pride?
