Actor and Las Vegas regular Wilmer Valderrama celebrated his 33rd birthday Saturday night at Hyde Bellagio, returning to the hotspot for the second consecutive year to mark turning one year older. Fez from “That ’70s Show” arrived on the red carpet in all-black attire and was joined by a large group of friends for the celebratory evening.
On-again, off-again girlfriend singer Demi Lovato, 20, reportedly did not accompany Valderrama to Las Vegas for his birthday -- so much for giving his heart a break. Valderrama posed for photos on the red carpet and happily greeted fans before heading inside Hyde.
At his VIP table near the DJ booth, Hyde’s servers carried sparklers and signs spelling out “W-I-L-M-E-R.” The notoriously flirty actor enjoyed the attention of several gorgeous women in his booth throughout the evening but seemed to be flying solo for a night out with the guys.
Later in the evening, Valderrama jumped inside the DJ booth to play emcee, saying, “Ladies and gentleman, we’re at Hyde Bellagio! We’re going to blow this party up!” as DJ Five spun the wheels of steel, and confetti showers rained over partygoers. Valderrama waved to fans while keeping the energy high, cheering, “Let’s go, Las Vegas!”
Upon returning to his table, Valderrama was presented with a birthday cake adorned with film reels and snapshots of the star, and he blew out the candles as his entourage sang “Happy Birthday.” The group danced and imbibed into the wee hours of the morning.
