Stars Have New 'Area' to Hang

9/29/2006 1:28 PM PDT
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.
