SCOOP Channing Tatum promoted his Magic Mike at the Loews Miami Beach. Joe Manganiello showed off his awesome beach bod, making 'em lust, on South Beach. Malibu-girl self to this coast to support her hubby Rande Gerber as he and Roberto Serralles launched Caliche Rum at The Bath Club. Let's see…who turned up at the do…. Ingrid Hoffman did. Ditto Belkys Nerey and Tommy Pooch. Speaking of Union, she also turned up at the Delano for the fab Grey Goose Cherry Noir party at FDR, as did Travie McCoy from Gym Class Heroes (with Neon Hitch), and Kenny Burns. Since I just mentioned Union, and by then this is June, guess where the legendary Michael Jordan watched Game 2 of the NBA Finals? My, at Haven. The basketballer hit the very happening gastro- lounge for the Stoli HOT Vodka viewing party, and was overheard accurately predicting the outcome of the series in favor of the Heat. Atta boy! Meanwhile, Chris Bosh celebrated one of the Heat's early wins with a nice dinner date with his wife Adrienne at the posh Villa Azur. Up in Hollywood, Michelle Hurd (A&E's The Glades) lent her star power to a benefit for the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America at The Playwright, while Julianne Hough and director Adam Shankman attended the Miami premiere of Rock of Ages, which was shot primarily in South Florida. Also doing the junket thing in the Magic City were – ooh, down boy – three of the studly stars of that summer feast for the eyes otherwise known as Magic Mike: Channing Tatum, Adam Rodriguez, and Joe Manganiello (I so toldja I'd revisit that brick house). The trio gave us the business at the Loews Miami Beach, and ohmyGwyneth, you know most of the reporters at the hotel were melting. Tatum was very cool, but if I have to play favorites, I will say the whole thing was all about Manganiello, whom I got to growl at me, just like his character on True Blood does (I thought asking him to channel his Magic Mike character, a fellow named Big Dick Richie, would have been a bit inappropriate). Btw 1, you absolutely can catch those interviews on the YouTube – just search for "Joe Manganiello Loves Miami, Feels the Heat" and get your jelly on. Btw 2, Tatum and Manganiello caught one of the Heat's NBA Finals games (I want to say Game 3) at Soho Beach House. Julianne Hough premiered Rock of Ages at the Regal South Beach 18. Matthew McConaughey, who also appeared and revealed a lot of himself in the movie, was in town as well, but on a personal matter. The oft-shirtless newlywed and his blushing bride, Camila Alves, shacked up at the Acqualina Resort & Spa while in Miami for the wedding of a couple of friends. Elsewhere on SoBe, Eric Daman (you totally know his work if you've watched TV's Gossip Girl – he dresses Serena, Blair & Co. in all those frocks you covet) held an event at the Swarovski store on Lincoln Road. One of my favorite gals in all of Hollywood, the one and only most delightful Elizabeth Banks, promoted People Like Us at the Mandarin Oriental Miami. And then came The Celebration. Once the Heat beat the Oklahoma City Thunder, it was off to LIV at the 'bleau for the Three Kings. MVP LeBron James rapped with LMFAO on stage, while Dwyane Wade celebrated with Gabrielle Union and the Boshes did their thing. The team's all-night rager reportedly had a bar tab of close to $250,000. Bienvenido a Miami, bitches! 110 MIAMI LIVING
