Stars Have New 'Area' to Hang

TMZ was on hand for the grand opening of hot new LA club Area Thursday night and the guest list looks to us that we may have a new premiere hotspot on our hands.

Jessica Simpson was one of the many out to celebrate the opening, showing up with former assistant Cacee Cobb and a few other friends. The usual blonde stunner was seen exiting the over-packed club and got our staff wondering where Courtney Love was-- you be the judge!

Also out to soak up the night Nicole Richie, hot mom Kate Hudson, rocker Dave Navarro, crazy man Jared Leto, hip-hop pioneer Busta Rhymes, Greasy Bear himself Brandon Davis and Sharon Stone, who we think may have been at the wrong party.
