When Brent Bolthouse decides to party, it usually generates lines of both the velvet and news variety. Still, some wondered if he might have lost some merrymaking mojo when he split from nightlife superpower SBE last year â€“ but his latest insider incarnation, Trousdale, with new partners Guy Starkman and Darren Dzienciol seems set for paparazzo paradise judging by its track record since opening last week.
First, Maroon 5 playboy Adam Levine threw a swanky black-tie birthday party at the new hot spot with his latest lady, saucy swimsuit model Anne V, and hip L.A. stylist, Aristotle Circa after dining at Mozza Osteria with Jonah Hill. Thatâ€™s some legit Hollywood actionâ€¦
But the real litmus test for LA zeitgeist status can only come from one ladyâ€™s Twitter feed: the incomparable queen of hot mess, Miss Linday Lohan. She really cemented Trousdaleâ€™s social status when she twheeted (my urban dictionary candidate for the hilarious celebutard tweet/whine) about her poor treatment at the door when she was made to wait â€“ gasp!- for 15 WHOLE MINUTES. You can bet your left Louboutin that this sad starlet snub and subsequent blogosphere baptism has re-affirmed Bolthouseâ€™s place at the top of the LaLa Land food chain.
