Dirt diehards came from Thunder Bay, Ottawa, London and even Montreal for Toronto’s 7th Annual Smut Soiree to hear Elaine “Lainey” Lui dish with Dan Levy as her wingman. Held at Evergreen Brickworks, and hosted by The Society and Laineygossip.com, the event was rampant with girls putting on their try, with a sea of jersey, towering heels and neon accessories as far as the eye could see. Stations offering press-on manicures by Broadway nails, lashes by Ardell, makeup applications by Stila and hair primping by John Frieda stylists were being mobbed like a Twilight premiere.

But gossip was the main event, and promptly at 8:30 p.m., the talk was flowing. Among the revelations:

1. Beyoncé most definitely had her own baby.
2. Alexander Skarsgård swings both ways.
3. Julia Roberts is a bitch and during a press junket, sent back a coffee because she didn’t like how it was presented.
4. Everyone needs to accept the fact that John Travolta is gay.
5. When Halle Berry is doing an interview and doesn’t feel like answering, she gives her rep baseball signals that are code for answers and the rep delivers them to the journalist.
6. Hugh Jackman is in an “arrangement” with his wife.
7. The new Friday Night Lights movie is definitely in the works and will centre around Tim Riggins (OK, that’s not smutty, but news that FNL fans can use).

And just like that, we were cut off, and it felt as if an I.V. that was nourishing our gossip-hungry bellies had suddenly run dry. Lainey may like to say gossip is a buffet, but she left me unsatiated last night.
