On the day when actor Shiney Ahuja was sent to jail for 7 years after convicted by the Mumbai court for raping his 20-year-old maid in 2009, I found it fiiting to share this bit of interesting news that has been sent to me by a loyal reader of fashionscandal.com. He/She goes by this psuedonym -Namisjh.
Here is the unedited verbatim of Namisjh spicy report:

Preity Zinta loves good-looking men! In 2007 during Har Pal shooting Preity Zinta was found barging into Shiney Ahuja’s van who was giving her the cold-shoulder. Can Shiney Ahuja who is an introvert and a professional and keeps distance from his female co-stars do something like this (raping his 20-year-old maid) or as his wife says he is implicated wrongly?
30 October 2007 (Sawf News) – We are sworn to mind our business and confine ourselves to what the stars want us to hear when they come courting the press to promote their films but just every now and then a doozy of a rumor falls into our laps. This one involves rumblings of a certain off screen connection developing between Preity Zinta and her co-star Shiney Ahuja. Pretty intriguing, wouldn’t you say? Our snoops on the sets of Jahnu Barua’s film Har Pal tell us the two are quite a pair. Har pal inseparable. Yes, yes, just good friends and all that, but it seems Ms. Zinta loves popping into Shiney’s make-up van as often as she can between shots. Well, we guess that settles the age-old question of “Your place or mine?” Clearly his. But his van? No, nothing as juicy as catching anyone red handed, but certainly red faced. Seems Preity trooped into his van, robustly and with great familiarity only to realize he was not alone. Embarrassed and struggling to cover up the true reason for her boisterous entrance, she fumbled with excuses and finally told him she was there to call him for their next shot together. Well, unless Ms. Z has taken a pay cut and donned the cap of the Assistant Director it clearly wasn’t her job to do so. Which clearly means, she’s a terrible liar or, and just as bad, so eager to be constantly in touch with him that she’s taken to borrowing the duties of a stars’ inferior, the crewmember. What’s next, Preity running around as his spot boy with Umbrella hovering over his shiny greatness?
Either way, the reasoning was as sheer as Mandakini’s saree under a RK waterfall and it left Shiney stuttering for a response. He excused himself from his Filmi guests and went to the door to have a hushed word with her. Unnaturally cheerful, she wished them all well and extricated herself as best as she could for her faux pas. Shiney, ever the “gentleman”, thought the best way to underplay the situation was to make light of it. He commented with a shake of the head and a well-practiced sigh, the old Aunty just wouldn’t leave him alone. Yes, poor dear, sick of the harassment from his senior heroine, is he? So much so, he’s signed on the dotted line to act in another film with her. Oh, but at least the chemistry boiling between them will have some relief what with the new script apparently an intimate look at the breakdown of a once loving marriage. Funny, isn’t it how art imitates life. Oh gosh, that isn’t to suggest Shiney Ahuja, if rumors are to be believed, may be doing a lot more practical of a study of how to mess up a marriage.
Elizabeth Taylor, the Hollywood icon who recently passed away had a strong India-Connection. Liz was an ardent follower of the disgraced godman, Chandraswami. She met Chandraswami in one of his numerous trips to the US when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Those were the hay-days of Chandraswami and he had powerful friends across the globe. Chandraswami, a Tantric was also known as a healer besides being the wheeler-dealer he was popularly known as. Elizabeth Taylor met the fraud Swami for his ‘Healing’ touch.
Tantric powers of Chandraswami probably worked on Liz Taylor or probably it was just a coincidence. After Swami’s healing touch, Taylor’s breast cancer reportedly came under control. Since then Elizabeth Taylor had blind faith on Chandraswami and people close to Swami say that she called the Swami every year on his birthday, even last year. Poor Swami is left with only Adnan Kashoggi amongst his famous global friends.
Now Chandraswami has fallen from grace thanks to all his scrupulous deals but he has a lone Bollywood disciple in Preity Zinta. Preity met him last year at the Kumbh in Haridwar. Oh, even Neetu Chandra is a Chandraswami disciple. But hey, neither Preity, nor Neetu Chandra can remotely be what the iconic Liz Taylor was. Poor Swami, what a fall!
One week ago I had no idea what or who Vanessa G was, except that our very own talented designer Ashish Soni has been engaged by Vanessa Gounden as the Chief Design Officer. But the launch show of Vanessa G at the Banqueting House at Whitehall was monumental.
From Vanessa G website I discover she has a background in, well, pretty much everything; Vanessa has worked in or owns businesses in trade unions, mining, healthcare and finance to name just a few sectors. However, as far as I can tell, she has no background in fashion and that makes me believe that the Autumn -Winter 2011 collection has to be entirely Soni’s creation. By the way the entire Vogue India team was flown in for the night!.
Veuve Clicquot flowed incessantly with DJ: Sophie Ellis-Bextor turning up the heat. All this added up to one hell of a fashion show The art-inspired floral prints, particularly the red and green garden-print silk blouse and the one-shouldered looked nice. The collection had coats, shift dresses and trench coats with prints of fantastic landscapes, flowers, flamingos and zebras and embroidery such as jewels and beads.
The post show party had few well dressed celebrities scattered in the crowd. Jade Jagger, Connie Huq, Emilia Fox and Poppy Delevigne grooved to Sophie-Ellis Bexter and her hubbie’s tunes from the DJ booth.
Guess what’s the hottest gossip doing the rounds at Delhi and Mumbai’s cocktail circuit? Well it’s the old murmur floating about, – ” what’s cooking between Sanjay Kapur (better known as Karisma Kapoor’s hubby) and Priya Sachdev Chatwal?”
The simmering murmur and catty whispers caught fire when at a party last weekend many witnessed Sanjay taking major offense to his sister, Mandira having an altercation with Priya. He shouted at Mandira and literally asked her to **** off ! Li’l birdies say that it was quiet a scene with tempers flaring, shoutings and eventually love winning over blood!
Pyaar Kiya Toh Darna Kya? Denials will be slammed but we at fashionscandal.com were the first to smell that’s something cooking between Sona Munda and Chatwal Bahu!
Photos from Silvio Berlusconi, the Italian Prime Minister’s infamous “bunga bunga” parties have been leaked, and they’re … kind of sizzling. Imagine the scene at Lok Sabha if any top Indian Parliamentarian was involved in such a sleazy scam…
Old Man-Berlusconi reportedly likes his ladies dressed as sexy Santas is also a fan of the sexy cop, as evinced by the photo of showgirl Barbara Guerra above. He also likes to watch ladies make out with each other. The photos were apparently seized from the laptops and cameras of Berlusconi’s female guests. According to the Telegraph, they’re part of the 20,000 page dossier the prosecution has compiled on Berlusconi — which, if the pics are any indication, is shaping up to be Italy’s Starr Report. Berlusconi’s trial starts on April 6 — it looks like it’ll be a wild ride.
