Toronto Had An Elite Invite-Only “Eyes Wide Shut” Holiday Party And We Weren’t Invited?
Juice Factor: 10/10
Some of Toronto’s most high-profile socialites couldn’t seem to wait until New Year’s Eve to party so hard their resolutions practically wrote themselves. Just a few days after Christmas, an heir to a local retail empire hosted a party at his pimped-out pad (which happens to be above a famous uptown store) – and the usual suspects who hadn’t flown south for the holidays were all there because if anyone knows how to celebrate a white Christmas no matter where they are, it’s trust fund kids. Things apparently got so Eyes Wide Shut as the night turned into the next day that even some of Toronto’s “best-dressed” socialites of 2014 stripped off their designer labels to get in on the action. Apparently New Year’s Eve parties are so 1999.
Introducing Future Sofia Manganiello
Juice Factor: 5/10
Modern Family’s Sofia Vergara and True Blood’s Joe Manganiello are engaged after just six months of dating. Hey, half a year of dating is practically a silver anniversary in Hollywood. Just ask Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden, who tied the knot this past week after seven months of going steady. One thing’s for sure: Sofia Vergara is the best thing to ever happen to people spelling Joe Manganiello’s name right.
Conrad Black Is Apparently (Sorta) Single, Ladies!
Juice factor: 8/10
Conrad Black has allegedly left Lady Black, in part because she was a little spend-happy with the Black joint bank account while he was away in prison. Hey, isn’t that just called retail therapy? The former inmate and controversial media mogul is rumoured to have already moved on, hooking up with a much younger heiress. Well, as long as everyone’s spending someone else’s money things should be good, right? Unfortunately for Lady Black, one of her therapeutic purchases – a designer fur coat – apparently got her in the bad books of Toronto society elite’s most notorious PETA supporters who happened to be at the same exclusive holiday party at the Shangri-La. No red paint was thrown – just shade.
Blind Item: Gay Rumour Alert!
Juice factor: 7/10
What world-famous rapper in a high-profile marriage to one of the most Googled women in the world is the subject of a new string of rumours that the music mogul is actually gay? According to our sources, his real lover lives a few houses down from where the rapper tied the knot. Although we’ve heard the rumours before, they certainly would lend more credibility to his marriage and the clothing he likes to make his wife wear.
Tori Spelling In Drug Trouble?
Juice factor: 6/10
Although Dean McDermott entered rehab for sex addiction last year after his philandering heart and cheating ways landed in the pages of tabloid magazines, gossip rags were quick to follow up with rumours that the real addict in the reality TV family is actually McDermott’s wife Tori Spelling who allegedly abuses Vicodin and Oxycodone. Although we rarely bat an eye when it comes to Hollywood’s love affair with prescriptions (you’d think Ativan was just an over-the-counter pain reliever, and Adderall a multi-vitamin if you spent as much time in LA as we do), a source who worked on Spellings’ reality show for a handful of episodes recently told us that the husband is definitely not the one with the addiction issues. Yikes.
