Deep breaths, Kardashianites.
Blac Chyna is hosting a party at Maya Day and Nightclub in Scottsdale this weekend.
Mhm, yes, that Blac Chyna, the former stripper, occasional model/video girl turned Tyga's co-parent turned fiancée of Rob Kardashian. Which is where things, for those who do not keep up with the Kardashians, get extra interesting. See, sock designer, former Khloé roommate, and alleged iPad re-gifter, Rob is older half-brother to Kylie Jenner, who in a Shakespearean twist that the reality TV masterminds at E! could never manufacture, is Tyga's current girlfriend.
To further complicate things, Chyna — with an extra, super-bonus layer of dramatic possibilities — counts Amber Rose (fellow former stripper, all around badass, and, um, also Kanye West's ex-girlfriend) as her BFF.
Which is all to say: Who wouldn't want to hang out with this woman?
Her timing, not unlike basically everything about her, is bit of a doozy. The new season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians premières on Sunday, May 1, and if trailers are any indication, her relationship with Rob will be a central focus. And given, y'know, all that stuff we mentioned above, that's understandably so.
So what can we expect from the woman who has promised us she'll soon share the Kardashian surname? Well, not many details about her bash are available. But we can tell you that doors open at 10 p.m. on Saturday, April 30. Knick Knack will provide the soundtrack to the 21-and-over event. Tickets are $14 via Eventbrite, but you can reserve a VIP table by calling either 602-810-0736 or 602-810-0167. Dress code will be in place, and no shorts, T-shirts, hats, or sneakers will be allowed.
No word on whether Rob will accompany her. But damn if our fingers aren't crossed.
