A new line might have been drawn in the Mr. Chow/Philippe Chow wars. While Kim and her Kardashian kin draped themselves over Philippe’s opening and held a recent birthday party there, Paris Hilton made an appearance at Mr. Chow, clearly declaring claims to the respective celeb-effing turf. Meanwhile, we spotted master thesbian Laurence Fishburne hiding in the corner at Chaya’s 25th birthday party, possibly waiting for the cake to be cut. Now, we’re not going to say the great actor has gotten fat, per se, but if we were casting a sequel to Boyz in the Hood, we know who’d play an aged Doughboy. Where else have celebs been noshing and drinking in L.A.? Take a look!
