Solution

140
Suppose there are two friends, A and B, who do not attend the party together.
If both of them do not attend the party, then the number of ways of selecting 6 guests = 8C6 = 28
If one of them attends the party, then the number of ways of selecting 6 guests = 2.8C5 = 112
∴ Total number of ways = 112 + 28 = 140
