Justin Bieber-Selena Gomez sightings all over Tampa Bay, but is James Franco here, too?



tbd-biebergomez031412.jpgAfter last weekend's Justin Bieber-Selena Gomez sighting at Ferg's in St. Pete, the floodgates have opened with sightings around the region. Of course, we have to share these with you, so just skip on to the next item if you don't care (the more thoughtful among you will share the fact you don't care with us in the comments, surely).

Julia Saunders, 13, of St. Petersburg took a photo (as shown) with Bieber outside Gratzzi Italian Grille in St. Pete on Saturday, the family says. Bieber was having dinner at the Italian restaurant with Gomez. As they left the restaurant, Julia yelled and asked if he would take a photo with her. Despite his bodyguards saying no, Bieber got out the vehicle and posed with Julia as her father snapped the photo, so Biebs has that going for him. Unlike Ferg's, it seems the paparazzi didn't swarm the pair at Gratzzi.

The U.K.'s Daily Mail also had photos of Jelena getting on a boat in what appears to be downtown St. Pete or thereabouts, and said the pair went to a Cracker Barrel in Tampa with Gomez’s Spring Breakers co-star Ashley Benson. Hey, even they can go over the Howard Frankland once in awhile!

This celeb mania has led to at least one faithful Juice*head reporting to us another star has been spied in the area: "James Franco has been allll around downtown in a trucker hat as a "disguise," a reader writes to us, "twice at the Baywalk Starbucks outside smoking cigs and talking with the homeless. Cool guy." Sure, when he's not hosting the Oscars.
