The biggest celebrity shock at this year’s Kentucky Derby was the surprise marriage of actress Brittany Murphy to her boyfriend of just a few months, screenwriter Simon Monjack.
The newlyweds showed up in Louisville after a quick trip to Las Vegas and proceeded to party with their wedding rings on at the Playboy bash Friday night. A friend told Page Six that they had wed in secret. A rep for Murphy - whose credits include “8 Mile” and “Clueless” and who has been engaged more than once before - didn’t return calls.
Also at the Playboy party was actress Rebecca Budig and her husband, former “Bachelor” Bob Guiney, as well as Tom Brady, Bobby Flay - walking around with a woman who was not his wife, Stephanie March - and Julius “Dr. J.” Erving.
Downtown at the Stereo party, Kevin Federline was not amused when organizers brought him to a table in the VIP area he deemed was too small and said, “Yo, I need a bigger table - I got six bitches with me.”
After DJ AM finished his set, Federline hi-jacked the microphone from Kid Rock. K-Fed gave “shout-outs” to hot girls in the crowd and screamed, “I got four kids already - which one of you Kentucky girls wants to have my fifth?”
There were no takers, and a spy said Kid started to “tool” on Federline, making fun of him.
While Kid Rock was verbally jousting with Federline, his girlfriend, May Anderson, was giving her own performance. The Danish beauty lay on the floor of the club, pulled her skirt up and allowed her friends to take photos of her undergarments. “At least she was wearing them,” one spy mused.
Across the room, Scott Speedman was unsuccessfully hitting on every blonde at the party, including the sober former Miss USA, Tara Conner, while Star Jones and Al Reynolds ground hips nearby.
Meanwhile, Jimmy Fallon, who was with his girlfriend, producer Nancy Juvonen, all weekend, never made it to the Stuff magazine party Friday night because, a friend said, “His driver invited him to a fraternity party. He played beer pong until 5 a.m. with the Sigma Chi frat boys [from the University of Louisville] and flirted with sorority girls.”
