NOOOO! BRANGELINA DIVORCE?
Juice Factor 10/10
On Tuesday morning, TMZ.com broke the exclusive story that is literally ruining our idea of a happily ever after. We thought this day would never come but unfortunately it is true – TRUE LOVE DOES NOT EXIST IN HOLLYWOOD. The most beautiful couple of life, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, are getting divorced. Angelina has served Brad with divorce papers stating the official date of separation as September 15, 2016. Apparently, Angelina is not asking for spousal support – she’s an independent woman. So much so that she doesn’t even want Pitt to get physical custody of the children, only joint legal custody. Sources say she was not happy with the way he was raising the kids. And it’s now being reported that he is under investigation for child abuse. Brad, who are you??!! If it’s true, good riddance!
JonBenet Ramsey, Brother is Murderer?
Juice Factor: 8/10
This is one of the saddest stories of our time. A child is murdered in cold blood, in her Colorado home, only 6 years old and 20 years later, there is no arrest. The case is not closed. We’ve been watching the intense docu-series on CBS and some shocking things were revealed. It is suggested by two forensic scientists who star in the series that the entire murder case was a cover up by the Ramsey family. They think that the brother, who has a history of violence and beating his little sister, whacked her over the head because she ate a piece of his pineapple. What the EFF. Clearly that family had some issues if they were dressing up their 6-year-old daughter like a showgirl and covering up their son as a murderer. Can you spell ISSUES? We can. It’s really sad though and just goes to show you that the law can’t always find you justice.
Blind Item: Employee Leaves Magazine, and They Rejoice, Rejoice.
Juice Factor: 9/10
Word on the street? There’s someone in Toronto who used to work at a very prestigious magazine publication and they recently, but not too recently, left. The departed has given various reasons for leaving. Moving on, greener pastures, and different direction. All of which are viable reasons to leave a job, for sure. But if you ask the people back at the office, word at the watercooler is that they are all praising the Lord that this person finally left. It’s like a weight off their shoulders and some say that this person in particular was causing lots of office drama and fighting with other employees, just making a bad environment to work in. This person – usually such a kind, ambitious character – might have become a product of a stressful situation but some say, they were the ones creating the stress. She said, he said….
Selena, Your Man Bieber is Free Again!
Juice Factor: 8/10
As you know, the Biebs has been seen with lots of blondes as of late. Maybe trying to erase the permanent memory of his dark brunette lady, Selena Gomez. Well, it ain’t working. News recently broke that Justin Bieber and his latest blonde flavour of the month, Sofia Richie have called it splits. So what, they took a vacation together in Mexico and have been making the Internet green with envy. Like, why can’t the Biebs just date a regular Canadian girl and pull a Cinderella on her? Pedestrian brides are the best brides. Anyway, news is that Sofia is already out and about without her Canadian boyfriend and Justin is doing the same. He’s single and ready to mingle. Girls, start your engines!
Lululemon PARTY TIME on Queen West
Juice Factor 8/10
Ok, if you weren’t invited to the lululemon re-opening party of their newly renovated Queen West store, you can start crying now. Apparently, the gift card was VERY generous. Damn! So, the soiree took place on Sunday night and the doors were strictly closed to the public. The guest list was super secret and some of the people you could see inside were very high profile. Seems that everyone wanted to be at the lululemon party – drinks, music, sliders – it was a party not to be missed. But if you did, let the FOMO begin.
Lisa Tant, Farewell Holts.
Juice Factor: 9/10
The legendary editor-cum-retail genius, Lisa Tant, announced last week that she would be parting ways with juggernaut Canadian retailer, Holt Renfrew. They hired Lisa from her previous publisher, Hello Canada, and created a new role for the leading lady. At Holt Renfrew, Lisa was known as the Vice President, Fashion Editor. But as of just last week, those big shoes will need to be filled as Tant rides off into the wind going to sew her creative oats. She posted on Instagram, “After four exciting years at Holt Renfew, I’ve made the decision to move on. I’m going back to my creative roots. (Stay tuned here as plans unfold!)” We are so excited for her and wish her the best of luck on all her new endeavors. As long as they include leopard print (her signature), she’ll be just fine.
After four exciting years at Holt Renfrew, I’ve made the decision to move on. I’m going back to my creative roots. (Stay tuned here as my plans unfold!) It’s been a privilege to work for such a fine ???????? company and I leave with many memories of my brilliant co-workers, vendors and amazing customers, many of whom I now call friends. Thank you to my dear Monica @eightyseventhst for perfectly capturing the moment in @driesvannoten of course. #lisatant #career #adventure #fashion #fashionlover
