Blind Item: Amore at a Soiree Features Married CEO, Staffer

Holy crap, has it really been three months since we’ve  posted a blind item? Come on ad industry, you’re more debaucherous than this. Anyhow, we dust off the category yet again to bring you this doozy and yell TGIF to the heavens in the process. A tipster tells us:

“unpopular, married with children, drunk ceo at ________, caught making out with hottie staffer at offsite party. shots and booze paid for by ceo. many witnesses and pics on camera phones. people shocked. now said staffer no longer works at company. paid off $$ to quietly resign. signed gag order. as did her husband. all staffers in attendance at party called in to hr next day. told not to discuss what they saw or know. not making this up. everyone at agency knows about it. just ask someone there that you already get tips from. this guy really f’d up. [now] he’s trying to cover his tracks. oops, too late.”

Hasn’t there been at least a billion guides to etiquette at an office party? For shame, agency executive, for shame. Who done it? You take your pick.
