Basketball, golf, music — this weekend brought a national spotlight to Houston. So it's no surprise that a smattering of celebrities found their way here as well — and we don't just mean Rob Kardashian.
As expected, Kentucky alum Ashley Judd found her way to the front row of the student section for the Kentucky-UConn game Saturday night, but she managed to keep the rest of her movements off the radar.
Among the plethora of basketball stars, Christian Laettner and Bill Walton showed up onstage at Discovery Green on Saturday, while Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and "a shirtless Dennis Rodman" were spotted at the Hyatt Regency downtown.
Former NBA star and current tournament commentator Charles Barkley had a leisurely dinner at Ibiza with a group of his former neighbors in Sugar Land in between his basketball duties, and Rockets and Phi Slama Jama great Clyde Drexler was spotted dining at RDG + Bar Annie on Thursday.
Hip-hop star Drake was spotted at the game Saturday supporting Kentucky, and he apparently crashed at Hotel ZaZa, as did Bill Walton and the band Plain White Tees (who tweeted that wherever they went in Houston they ran into Big Dance performers Panic! At The Disco).
Rapper and actor Ludacris made an unannounced cameo onstage at Discovery Green on Saturday before Kings of Leon performed while former Bachelorette Ali Fedotowski and her winning bachelor Roberto Martinez watched the band from the park with the rest of the plebes.
Ali also tweeted about a dinner at a Houston brewery — we're assuming she means Saint Arnold's — and on Sunday Fedotowski added, "Roberto and I are having so much fun with friends in Houston, I don't want to fly home today."
