Sightings: Stars race to Kentucky Derby party, Pacquiao-Mosley fight

Curtis Stone and Lindsay Price celebrate the Kentucky Derby

Winning colt Animal Kingdom got some Hollywood love over the weekend as stars celebrated the Kentucky Derby with a satellite viewing party in Los Angeles.

Celeb lovebirds Curtis Stone and Lindsay Price were among those lured to a gathering at Palihouse on Saturday, joining others wearing suits and derby-day hats. The cute pair played foosball and sipped mint cocktails while mingling. Stone, rocking an In Add Minus seersucker suit, chatted up "90210" hunk Trevor Donovan at the Droid Charge Samsung-Verizon bash.

A flight away to Sin City saw boxing fans celebrating the big fight between Manny Pacquiao and Shane Mosley. After Pacquiao's victory, the likes of Paris and Nicky Hilton and Kelly Osbourne with fellow "Dancing With the Stars" contestant Louie Vito hit the Cosmopolitan's Marquee nightclub to party. Kevin Federline was also spotted.

Sports excitement aside, the weekend was really about moms. Denise Richards is arguably a mom in need of serious credit this year, what with her raising two girls in the orbit of the Ma-Sheen.

With Richards hosting  Saturday at a private Beverly Hills residence, celeb families including those of Joanna Krupa, Amber Heard and Charlie O'Connell of "The Bachelor" marked the launch of Nintendo's 3DS game Nintendogs + Cats, with pets kindly invited as well.

The same day, single mom Christina Milian pampered herself at Joico's "On the Go Beauty" event, with mom Carmen in tow.

Not enough star sightings? Just last week, the stars of "Something Borrowed" gathered for an intimate dinner. At West Hollywood's Mezze, movie producers Hilary Swank and Molly Smith of 2S Films toasted film stars Colin Egglesfield and Ashley Williams, as well as the book's author Emily Giffin.
