Broken Promises

This well-known couple felt shunned at one of the most high-profile gala dinners in the city, even posting about it on Instagram, a post that went viral. The drama was the result of an oversight by one particular lady often tasked with helping to co-ordinate VIPs for the event.

She allegedly made false promises to the couple in exchange for confirming their attendance, possibly in the hope of scoring more coverage with the local press, but her plan backfired big time. The event certainly got lots of press, but for all the wrong reasons.

This guy likes to party and has been known to take it too far. He’s from a reputable family and is married with kids, but his behaviour would lead you to think otherwise. During a tour of the suites during the recent opening party for a luxurious new hotel, the inebriated playboy, forgetting he was not alone, climbed into bed and promptly passed out. He may not remember the night, but we do!

She’s fabulous, she’s fun and sometimes she doesn’t realise who or what she damages in the process—which is why some have given her the nickname “the tornado.” While she was recounting one of her many wild stories to a gallerist, she accidentally damaged a very expensive work of art. Luckily, the gallery managed to have the artwork repaired overnight, so nobody was the wiser.

Many go the extra mile to show their support for this particular event, a highlight of the Art Week social calendar. But this year the organisers struck a nasty hurdle, with VIPs kicking up a fuss about having to line up with everyone else.
