What The Tatler Nose Overheard From The Society Grapevine #3: Two Brave Kleptomaniacs, One Party Princess And One Fake Doctor
A gentleman shocked those around him when he casually removed a sizeable chocolate ball from the beautiful edible centrepiece at a recent black-tie event, leaving a large gap in its place. We think he'll get along just fine with another society cheapskate who mortified her tablemates at a recent charity gala when she slipped one of the ceramic figurines used as table decor.
He may have built a successful eponymous fashion brand from scratch, but this flamboyant designer has rubbed several of his high-profile clients the wrong way with his poor time management skills and lack of after‑sales service. What’s worst, they’ve even asked their friends to boycott him altogether.
What happens when a celebrity hairstylist gives you a bad $500 haircut? You rant about it on social media, of course, as this young society belle did, in hopes of gaining pity from her followers. Unfortunately, only two of them extended their sympathies—her boyfriend and his mother.
A matron going through a bitter divorce didn’t bother to hide her extramarital affair, bringing her new boyfriend to a friend’s dinner party one recent weekend. She later made guests even more uncomfortable when she joked about the other occasions she had cheated on her husband—and vice versa.
Calling HIS Bluff
Another straying spouse had an opposite reaction. After being caught with his hands around the waist of his rumoured mistress by his wife’s friend, the man played it dumb the next time they met and introduced himself like it was their first meeting.
The city has a new (party) princess. This Versace‑loving lady has been spotted out and about at different nightclubs almost every week, each time surrounded by a different group of beautiful people and splashing in excess of $50,000 on Dom Pérignon bubbly.
Did he or did he not? Many were in two minds about whether this society offspring really graduated from medical school—or so he claimed—after rumours started swirling that he was kicked out in his last semester, thanks to his partying ways. He’s now apparently doing administrative work at a friend’s aesthetic clinic, still wearing a lab coat no less.
