The Ministry’s got fresh intel on where your favorite stars have been working and playing, in Hollywood and beyond. The first weekend of spring brought out tons of heavyweight names -- be it for cinematic honors or Playboy Bunnies in pajamas -- and we’ve got eyes everywhere.

On Saturday evening, after its annual golf tournament, Playboy hosted its Pajama and Lingerie party, packed with scantily clad centerfold types and their celebrity admirers.

Jeremy Piven, Corey Feldman, Ron Jeremy and ‘The Bachelor’ star Bob Guiney turned out in silk robes and pajama sets. While Olympian Bode Miller got cozy with ‘Survivor’ temptress Corinne Kaplan, the talk of the party was the appearance of former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer‘s alleged call girl.

Indeed, Ashley Dupre had snagged herself an invite to the Playboy mansion affair, which she attended in relatively modest attire -- a slinky blue robe -- and on the arm of rehabbing (his knee, people, his knee!) New England Patriots receiver Wes Welker.

Not far from the mansion, a fully clothed crowd gathered at the Beverly Hilton for the 24th annual American Cinematheque fundraiser -- honoring actor Matt Damon. His bestie Ben Affleck, in a one-button Gucci tux, presented him with an award for his career achievements.

Past honorees include Julia Roberts and Samuel L. Jackson; the event will air this spring on ABC.

From Beverly Hills to Miami, newly single Kim Kardashian was spotted getting some love from her girlfriends ...

... Kelly Rowland‘s new charity ‘I Heart My Girlfriends,’ that is. The Destiny’s Child member launched a nonprofit that supports teen girls. Celebrating at the One Bal Harbour Resort & Spa. Rowland’s pals Kim and Serena Williams toasted Kelly’s philanthropic efforts with Grey Goose cocktails.


Earlier on Saturday, gal pals Mena Suvari, Kate Mara and Krysten Ritter got their shopping on. At Los Angeles’ Saks Fifth Avenue, the trio got a preview of designer Treesje’s Spring 2010 collection, nabbing clutches and hobo bags in Italian leather.

To round out the weekend, actor John Cusack spent his Sunday Funday in Las Vegas, where he and two pals ate kobe beef meatballs and crispy chicken at Lavo, topped off with espresso for dessert.
