K-Fed skips sons’ birthday bash for Vegas fun

Kevin Federline might have been dubbed father of the year by Club Prive in Vegas, but his behavior in that city last weekend might get him stripped of such status.

Federline attended the Sept. 12 preview party for Lavo, a new bathhouse-inspired restaurant and nightclub, and had such a good time he decided to extend his stay. Unfortunately, that meant skipping out on his sons’ birthday party back in L.A., according to a source who was on hand.

“On Friday night he went to Lavo’s preview party, even danced to Britney's ‘Gimme More’ and had so much fun that night he  decided to stay for Saturday’s grand opening,” the source says. “Saturday he spent the day by the pool, then had dinner at TAO and hit the Lavo grand opening, red carpet and all, where he partied (un)til 4am.”

Was a special woman behind the rescheduling? No, says the source. “It was more of a guys’ weekend, but a very good time was had by all.”

One Federline source says that the behavior isn’t surprising. “He’s apt to kind of just do what he wants. He loves the boys (Preston, 3 and Jayden, 2) but if he’s having fun someplace else, he’ll stick with that.”

Federline’s rep Marilyn Lopez defended her client’s honor with a clarifying “no comment.”

Palin cover story outsells McCainJust one week after running GOP vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin on its cover, People magazine put John McCain and his entire family on its cover.

According to a well-placed industry insider, the McCain family issue has not sold as well as the Palin cover; in fact early estimates indicate it is selling below the magazine's weekly average.

“The early numbers have (the McCain issue) a good bit below their average — about 1.3 million,” says the source. “Palin did about 1.7 million, which is above average.”

A rep for People said it was still “too early” to know whether the numbers were accurate.

Why did McCain falter at the newsstand? The industry insider cited two reasons: “Maybe it’s because the accompanying story was drier than the Palin story. But also I guess it proves that not all Republicans want to buy magazines with stories about Republicans.”

“I don’t want to get into too much detail, because I give a quote and then it’s blogged about on the Internet for the rest of my life," Dunst shared. “I don’t want to be hassled about it. I would like to be a person who can help people, but privately.”

Given the fact that Dunst spent time in rehab, it’s surprising to some that she spends so much time at Manhattan bar Beatrice Inn.

Of this, Dunst says, “They keep people out who will write stuff and blog about it.  But I’m not going to go there if what I do is written about. I’m very aware. I’m like an eagle eye. I’m not free as a bird (when I’m there), but I love to dance. And I literally have gone up to people and said, ‘Did you just take my picture?’ I have to protect myself.”
