Last Night's Parties: Lady Gaga's Mom Steps Out, Jake Gyllenhaal Hosts A Dinner Party

by Chiara Atik · October 14, 2010 you think it's pure coincidence that Waris Ahluwalia, who arguably threw the biggest party of the night, planned his little soiree on the same night of his ex-girlfriend's movie screening? If we wanted to, we could maybe read into the fact that it was a reading of Madame Bovary, of all things...-

And did you know that Lady Gaga's mom is very pretty and has an active social life? And do you have any idea what's eating Jake Gyllenhaal these days? These questions and more, in today's party roundup....
