Bill Clinton threw a very expensive fundraiser Tuesday, but the non-celebrity guests were not impressed, with at least one calling it the "worst party ever." The Telegraph recounts tweets and interviews with attendees who stood in line outside for hours after paying anywhere from $200 to nearly $1,600 for a ticket, while Clinton and VIPs like Gwyneth Paltrow and schmoozed inside. Once they finally made it in to the underground venue, multiple guests reported perspiration dripping from the walls, and one adds that "the place absolutely stank." Plus, it was so crowded that some couldn't even see or hear Clinton.

The London event, a fundraiser for the Clinton Foundation Millennium Network, isn't the only party Clinton's been to lately: Last night, he was photographed with "a porn star on each arm," the New York Post gleefully reports (or, as TMZ puts it, "SURROUNDED by porn stars"). This time around he was at another gala he co-hosted, this one a benefit for the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation (More Bill Clinton stories.)
