Last Tuesday, instead of heading home after a long day at the office, I rushed to the Evergreen Brickworks, to attend Lainey Gossip’s 8th annual SMUT Soiree. Knowing that the event would be full of amazing experiences and juicy gossip, even the promise of thunderstorms couldn’t stop me.
I arrived to a jam-packed venue, with over 1000 people enjoying free drinks, manis, hair touch-ups, Cinderella-like shoe fittings from ALDO, and more. And with $1000 FLARE x H&M “style award” prize on the line, the attendees really brought their A-game. I haven’t seen a crowd this stylish in a long time!
After hanging out with my blogger besties Sharon and Gracie, we took our seats for a gossip sesh full of blind item reveals and juicy tidbits that only the industry insiders would normally be privy to. It felt like a HUGE slumber party with your best friends…well…if you have 1000 girlfriends that is. Lainey, who will be moving to Toronto this summer, also introduced her future The Social co-hosts Melissa Grelo, Cynthia Loyst, and Traci Melchor, who gave the audience a taste of what their new daytime show would feel like – and it was pretty fun…and smutty! Cynthia shared a personal blind item…and I’m fairly sure it was about Emilio Estevez…EMILIOOO! Well…at least I think it was.
With each year, the SMUT Soiree just keeps on getting bigger and better…and I wouldn’t be surprised if sometime soon it might have to be held at a large concert venue (ACC SMUT?). I guess I’m not the only gossip lover in town?
So tell me, have you ever attended Lainey’s SMUT Soiree? Do you like celeb gossip? Share in the comments.
