Is it possible to use 550ex AND alien bees ?

This is the last question before I get my hands on DigiBee package. I am planning to get it with radio remote system. Is it possible to use 550ex on camera and fire AlienBees at the same time using the radio remote ? In other words - since 550ex is going to be sitting in the hot shoe - does radio remote connect through PC Sync port at all ? I don't think so but maybe there is a different sollution to it ?

What I have in mind is lighting a reception room at a wedding using two AB800's to bounce off ceiling and 550ex on camera in the same way. For obvious reasons I cannot set AB's to slave and trigger them with my flash...
