The phone wars heated up this past weekend with both Samsung and Sidekick throwing major shindigs to help launch their newest devices. Fallout Boy rocked the Bolthouse Productions–thrown Sidekick iD bash on Saturday, while The Alliance hosted the Samsung Upstage party with music by Gnarls Barkley on Sunday — and stars stampeded both, of course.

Gawd, who doesn’t have a reality show these days? Three Six were almost as raucous as the live memorabilia auction, but unfortunately, they didn’t entice Hef and his Girls Next Door (the only reality stars we did want to see) to make an appearance. Still, skin was everywhere, thanks to the bevy of B-list babes in bunny costumes and skimpily dressed actresses like Bai Ling and Dominque Swain, both of whom got their feet wet with us in the mansion’s infamous grotto pool area.
