Despite the outfits flown in from luxury designers and decorations and catered food costing thousands of dollars, celebrities can somehow commit the most heinous party fouls for all to see. Stars — they are just like us.

While laughing at these train-wreck incidents is always an option, it's possible to learn from them, too. For instance, what's the proper way to react if someone steals the cake, like a party-crasher did to Paris Hilton? Or what if the carefully arranged decorations set someone’s hair on fire, like at P. Diddy’s bash? Lady Gaga may not offer the best style tips, but the way she dealt with an awkward situation at her birthday party involving an American Idol star and too much booze is something to pay attention to.

The fact is, so much can go wrong at any party, whether it’s a large dinner party or cocktail party. Whatever goes wrong — difficult guests, burnt food, or even a natural disaster — a good host is always prepared for the absolute worst. Take a cue from these celebrity mishaps and learn how to avoid them at your next party.
