Sugar daddy get laid off? Ex-husband take your name off the credit cards? Look no further than starlet-endorsed boutique Bleu, which is hosting a "Gold Party" this Friday and Saturday—kind of the same premise as those "Cash for Gold" shops (sell your unwanted gold for an improbable profit), but with cocktails. Says a flyer: "Please RSVP to this event, many of our clients have many exes and we expect a large turnout!" You couldn't make this up. [Bleu Clothing]
