Dita Von Teese is moving on up from her days as wife to goth rocker Marilyn Manson (who actually looks like this without make-up). The shapely striptease beauty will attend Vienna's prestigious Opera Ball on Jan. 31 as the special guest of an Austrian businessman, Richard Lugner. Lugner is a 75-year-old real estate and construction mogul who takes a celebrity to the glamorous gala every year.
“Lugner keeps the Viennese in suspense each winter over who will accompany him to the ball. His past guests include Paris Hilton, Carmen Electra, Pamela Anderson and Sarah Ferguson....The annual Opera Ball, which is broadcast live on national television, is attended by Austria's politicians and socialites, as well as foreign dignitaries. Tickets for the event are a hot commodity and sell out months ahead of time.”Don’t worry, that’s not the end of it. Guys, men, prepubescent boys, you might be relieved to know money still can’t buy love, at least not when you’re 75, mogul or no. According to Page Six Von Teese is keeping her options open:
“ATTENTION, Dita Von Teese: You have a package coming from Jeremy Piven. The "Entourage" star picked out two black satin, sequined mini-dresses from the Be Seduced line for a woman he told a swag-suite clerk he had a crush on. But as he browsed at Kari Feinstein's suite at Social Hollywood in LA last week, he was forced to come clean about the identity of his "brunette and curvy" lady friend because he didn't know her size. He finally told the clerk the dresses were for Von Teese ... "He said he likes her, but it's not official yet," the employee told Page Six. Piven's rep said the duo are "not dating. He's busy shooting a movie." But apparently he's not too busy to flirt. Von Teese's lawyer, Keith Fink, told us Piven has seen her performance and he shyly said hello to her when he ran into her at an LA newsstand right before he bought the dresses. "She is single, and she's not dating, so he should step up to the plate because there's a lot of guys interested," said Fink.Jeremy Piven is obviously a total tool, but rebounds usually are. (More hope for you guys, men, and prepubescent boys out there). So, you go, Dita Von Teese, you statuesque goddess, break as many hearts as you have to before you find yourself whole again.
