Brody Jenner’s romances with 2008 Playmate of the Year Jayde Nicole and singer Avril Lavigne and MTV’s “Bromance” seem as if they were just yesterday.
The reality TV star and Las Vegas regular celebrated the Big 3-0 with a bash at Hyde Bellagio on Saturday night minus siblings Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and Rob Kardashian and Kylie and Kendall Jenner and parents Bruce and Kris Jenner.
Jenner arrived at the nightspot just before midnight in a casual red Pabst Blue Ribbon T-shirt and jeans. The handsome heartthrob, accompanied by a group of friends, was greeted on the arrivals carpet by fans and posed for photographs before heading inside.
Jenner and friends made their way to a VIP booth beneath the club’s fireplace DJ booth as Hyde’s masked performance artists greeted them carrying giant letters spelling out “B-R-O-D-Y.” The DJ announced, “Make some noise for the birthday boy, Brody Jenner!”
“The Hills” and “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star’s entourage toasted to his birthday with beer and tequila shots. Jenner snapped photos with fans, and the group danced and drank all night long. He also said hello to blackjack legend Don Johnson (not the “Miami Vice” actor) partying at a nearby table.
Hyde presented birthday boy Brody with a beach-themed cake with sand and surfboards and topped with a photograph of him surfing. Hyde also sent its gilded boat through the club to deliver a bottle of champagne. Jenner playfully grabbed a piece of cake and threw it at a friend, prompting a food fight.
Friends including pro golfer Tommy Armour III joined the group throughout the evening as they celebrated into the early hours. Also at Hyde with friends: reality TV star Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett, who wished Jenner a “Happy Birthday” shortly upon arriving.
