Jennifer Love Hewitt: Single and Stepping Out

With help from her colleagues, Jennifer Love Hewitt is on the road to recovery from what reports say is a “tough time” for the newly-single star.

A source tells Celebuzz that Hewitt, 29, stepped out last night to party with her Ghost Whisperer pals at Los Angeles hotspot Apple Lounge.

“Jennifer was with her cast having a blast. Camryn Manheim, Jamie Kennedy and the rest were dancing all night,” the source says of the actress, whose split from 32-year-old actor Ross McCall was announced just five days ago.

People magazine reported that Hewitt has been distant from her fellow castmates since Monday, when shooting resumed on the supernatural drama (also the same day as the breakup announcement).

“She is only hanging out with her bodyguard,” a source told the mag of Jennifer’s on-set behavior last Tuesday, January 6.

What a difference a week makes.

Also spotted at Apple: Janet Jackson, who hit the floor with some of the able-bodied dancers from her now-defunct Rockwitchu Tour. Boyfriend Jermaine Dupri has hit the venue twice prior to Jackson this month, while the pair have yet to attend together.
