Celebrity Tailgating Tips for All Your Football Watching Needs

Fergie, Gloria Estefan, and other diehard football fanatics share their game-day rituals
by Tyler Nguyen

Autumn is around the corner, and along with that brilliant fall foliage comes one of America's favorite pastimes: football!

For some devoted fans, the sport goes hand in hand with the backyard barbecue -- a pitcher of beer and burger patties sizzling on the grill, all while watching the game on their portable electronics. For others, it's all about hunkering down in front of the flat-screen with a paper plate of tortilla chips and seven-layer bean dip. But the avid tailgaters start game day bright and early, with a cooler full of goodies loaded in the car, picnicking in the stadium parking lot.

When it comes to donning their team colors and cheering for that 50-yard pass, celebrities are just as devoted as we are. We asked football-loving stars to tell us how they like to spend game day, tasty treats and all. Whether it's Gloria Estefan's Dolphin-inspired teal-and-orange Margaritas or Kendra Wilkinson's girls' night out, these stars' festive ideas are sure to make for a terrific pigskin party.
