It was a veritable gossip summit last night at the Evergreen Brick Works, where 800 people—almost all female—turned up for The Society’s seventh annual Smut Soirée with LaineyGossip blogger and eTalk personality Lainey Lui. Smut lovers came from as far away as Thunder Bay, London and Ottawa to meet the Toronto-born blogger, who’s known for her scandalous—and trustworthy—blind items. There was a lot of sponsored swag and no shortage of VitaminWater, but the highlight of the night was, of course, the gossip. After a brief introduction from Ashleigh Dempster and Amanda Blakley, Lainey took the stage with television host Dan Levy for an hour-and-a-half Q&A. The five juiciest tidbits from last night’s giant girly gabfest—plus five blind riddle reveals—after the jump.
Two men have filed a lawsuit against John Travolta this week, dealing with allegations that Travolta sexually harrassed his masseurs while getting a rubdown. Lainey Lui of Lainey Gossip fuelled the gay rumour mill yesterday by adding that she has close friends in Toronto who have been approached by Travolta. According to Lainey, while Travolta was shooting Hairspray in the city, he propositioned two of her male friends in a locker room—and she also claims a hotel worker pal of hers was encouraged to linger after showing the actor to his room. If any of this is true, and Travolta really is on the down low, he is both brazen and saucy. Or maybe he’s just like George Constanza and appreciates a good man-on-man massage? We won’t know what Travolta is thinking until he comes out and says it.

It is no secret that Canadians are gaga for the monarchy (what other country’s national television station would broadcast the Queen’s coronation in 3-D?), so we weren’t shocked to hear that a collection of Princess Diana’s gowns will be auctioned in Toronto this June.
