was invited by eccentric
billionaire Richard Lugner
77 to attend the Vienna Opera Ball
as his guest which is considered to be quite an honour.
In the past he has taken Pamela Anderson, Dita Von Teese, Carmen Electra
and last year Nicolette Sheridan
attended. He pays these women $150,000 to attend with him!!
According to PageSix lindsay
missed her flight because she was too busy shopping. Austrian
papers are reporting that lindsay
held up a flight (not with gun...with her tardiness) from Los Angeles
en route to Vienna
and couldn't pay the $22k airline fee for the delay (let this be a warning to all travelers to make sure you set your alarm clocks...who knew
about such a fee?). Lugner
told the Austrian
press:"She wanted to pay it, but her card's credit limit was not high enough"
Apparently she had made some demands before the ball including no alcohol be left in her sight and asking that the date of the event be switched. Sure lindsay
. They've only held the ball on the Thursday before Ash Wednesday since 1936, but we'll change it for you so you can shop!
If Mr. Lugner
is reading I am more than happy to accompany you to next year's Ball. Kindly have your people fill out the contact form in the top right hand corner of my site, and we can make the arrangements. Don't worry baby, I won't let you down. I'm not a big shopper at all so there will be no delay on my end. Thanks!
Update: According to GossipCop
the part about the $22k bill is WRONGO!! This was a rumour started by some other ill-informed celebrity blogger (not me he he he). I got my story from PageSix. Aren't they always
As far as the Vienna Ball part, I still don't know. But it made for an interesting story, no?
