Once upon a time, it was considered bad manners to wear a hat while dining at a restaurant. But that was before the rise of Ashton Kutcher and Ashlee Simpson, who kept their headgear on during their respective meals. Even worse in the etiquette guidebook is spilling drinks on fellow diners, a lesson John Stamos learned the hard way this week — though, to his credit, he recovered quite gracefully (not to mention sexily). Lots more celebrity sightings straight ahead.
