GRAPEVINE -- Shhh, Terrell Owens doesn’t know it, but Will Smith and Ludacris are expected to help him celebrate his birthday and help 81 families for Christmas as part of his Catch a Dream Foundation’s charity event tonight at the Glass Cactus at the Gaylord Texan Resort.
Ludacris is expected to give a surprise performance and Smith will give a special birthday presentation.
Other celebrity guests include Solange Knowles, Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta, Jill Marie Jones, and America's Next Top Models.
However the headliners of the night will probably be Owens’ teammates on the Dallas Cowboys, considering the turmoil of the past week.

Never mind the feel-good victory against the New York Giants on Sunday, will quarterback Tony Romo and tight end Jason Witten show up in support of Owens?
Last week Romo was accused by Owens and receivers Patrick Crayton and Roy Williams, of throwing the ball to his best friend Witten and not going to the open receiver.
Owens and Witten also had words on Friday because of an ESPN report that labeled Owens jealous of Witten’s relationship with Romo.
It was all smiles between the trio Sunday night following the Cowboys’ 20-8 victory against the Giants. But the question is whether Romo and Witten will come and celebrate Owens’ birthday with the rest of his teammates.
A host of Cowboys are expected to attend the birthday party and charity invent. This is the second consecutive year for Owens’ party to be held at the Gaylord Texan. Last year, Chris Rock, Serena Williams and the Pussycat Dolls were among the attendees.
