Poor Lydia Hearst. The deft financial analyst was to host a big Social Life magazine 4th of July party in the Hamptons over the weekend, 'cause she's on the cover this month. But alas she couldn't make it. Twas gallstones!

Yeah, the buildup in her gallbladder or bile duct caused her to miss the party, which was attended by other bile-related buildups like Kellan Lutz and socialgay Kristian Laliberte. In fact Laliberte was the one who spilled the beans about Ms. Hearst's painful condition, and we're sure Lydia's thrilled with him. ("Couldn't you have said a migraine, Kristy?")

Hopefully she spent her recuperation time at home writing a new Wealth of Nations.
