How the Stars Rang In the New Year

The 2008 may be over, but chances are some of your favorite celebrities still haven't made it home from their wild New Years Eve parties. Stars flocked to Sin City Las Vegas and Miami to ring in the New Year with their privileged entourages and family members. Here's a breakdown of who rocked what club in what city.

Carmen Electra served as the mistress of ceremonies of the New Year’s celebrations at TAO Las Vegas. Fiancé Rob Patterson was by her side the whole night and let her shine in the spotlight as she conducted the countdown in the DJ booth.

Brody Jenner was also celebrating at TAO with girlfriend Playboy Playmate Jayde Nicole and mom Linda Thompson. After some major PDA with his girlfriend, Brody made his way to the DJ booth with his mom and rocked out to the sounds of DJ Vice and hyped up the packed house of club goers.

New mom Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz played host at Pure nightclub. Ashlee and Pete were full of excitement for it was their first night on the town since the birth of baby Bronx. After sharing a few passionate New Year’s kisses and feeding pieces of cake to each other, the couple retreated back inside to their VIP table where they drank Grey Goose cocktails and danced the night away.

The couple everyone loves to hate,
Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt attended to their hosting duties over at Christian Audigier The Nightclub. While sipping on Dom Perignon Champagne, the duo happily posed for photos with fans. It pays to be a reality star!

One of the biggest Sin City New Year's Eve bashes was inside LAX Nightclub at Luxor where Kim Kardashian and her sisters Kourtney and Khloe were joined by a slew of celebrity friends and family to ring in 2009 in true Las Vegas style.

The reality show sisters were joined by Kim’s boyfriend Reggie Bush, brother Robert Kardashian, mom Kris Jenner, step father Bruce Jenner, Brittny Gastineau and “Girls Gone Wild” creator Joe Francis, among others.

Prive Las Vegas kicked off another year with a celebrity bash hosted by Denise Richards and Lance Bass. The "It's Complicated" star arrived at the nightclub with her father Irv right before midnight and was reportedly nervous about getting up and doing the countdown in front of thousands of Prive's New Year's Eve guests but co-host Lance Bass helped to ease her concerns.

At Midnight, Bass and Richards headed to the DJ booth to welcome in 2009 to roaring sirens and a large confetti drop. Following the countdown, the two danced at Richards' VIP table where the Prive cocktail waitresses brought out a Magnum of Dom Perignon to celebrate. How do we become apart of that entourage?

Heading East, Eugene Remm and Mark Birnbaum hosted the annual New Year's Eve bash in Miami at Shore Club's Skybar. This year Gerard Butler helped countdown to the New Year along with guests including Jared Leto, Kristin Cavallari and 90210's Annalynne McCord and
former 90210 star Ian Ziering.

Hope your News Years was safe and fun, wishing you guys all the best in the upcoming year. How did you ring in your New Years?
