Waters fell ill and needed treatment for kidney stones, but the instance forced him to miss him own annual Christmas bash. The party still took place two days before Christmas, but without Waters. “It was a very weird Friday evening, a John Waters party without John,” a guest said after the party, “Since my party has always been private and off the record I think I’ll just keep it that way,” Waters wrote in an email to attendees of the party. “I am fine and it’s a new concept in home entertainment — the host doesn’t show up. All is well. JW.” To the fans of Waters, breathe out. Your favourite is completely alright and he is already on the way home.
