Justin Bieber Tells Hailey Baldwin It’s OVER, for good.
Juice Factor: 9/10
Don’t ask us where we heard this but recently, Hailey has been going around town telling anyone who will listen, really, what’s been happening with her and ex-boyfriend Justin. The couple was allegedly dating for a few months around the winter holidays this past year, posing for pictures together on social media – and even a few pictures of them kissing! Yee-haw! That sent the rumors spiraling. Finally, a girl that would make the Biebs get over the Gomez. But it wasn’t true love as the couple, who were never exclusive to begin with, were seen with other people not too long after. Baldwin cozied up with Drake; Biebs found a pair of CK undies to cozy up with. But that’s not what we heard. Apparently, Hailey and Biebs have been in constant contact until only just recently when he allegedly sent her a text to leave him alone because he doesn’t have time for her in his life anymore. Sorry, Hailey. We guess you’re not Justin’s number one girl, always makin’ time for you…
Teresa is Back
Juice Factor: 6/10
On Sunday night’s RHONJ Season 7 premiere, the cast welcomes home Teresa Giudice from her just over 11-month jail sentence served for mortgage fraud. After an almost 2-year hiatus, the season kicked off with a super emotional episode. We learn that Teresa hadn’t spoken to her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga or brother, Joe Gorga, the entire time she was in prison. But scheduled to come home just days before Christmas, Teresa gets permission to attend the traditional family gathering at her brother’s house. Midnight mass, however, is strictly verboten. We witness a gut-wrenching reunion between Teresa and her daughters that will surely bring a tear to anyone’s eye. It’s as real as real can get. This season promises to be more drama-filled than ever with the return of Jacqueline and the introduction of two new comedic sidekicks: Siggy and Dolores. But the trippiest part of all? Dorinda (of RHONY) showing up at Melissa Gorga’s house for the premiere after-party. What the…
Blind Item: Media Personality Threatens to Sue Over Racial Slurs and Harassment
Juice Factor: 7/10
In light of recent events, driven by racial polemics, it seems as though members of Canadian media are beginning to battle each other, contributing to the divide between those who understand racism and those who are blinded by their privilege. We aren’t here to prove right or wrong but just to report that two members of Canadian media who were otherwise friends have been at each other’s throats over social media on the topic of racism. So much so that one has threatened to take legal action against the other, threatening to call the police over a social media post. The battle is ongoing to this day and we are legit scared to see the outcome. It’s uncomfortable to watch this all unfold but it definitely shows that the Canadian personalities are not united.
Toronto’s Liz Trinnear Engaged!
Juice Factor: 8/10
One of the most lovely media personalities, Liz Trinnear, TV host for Much Music and etalk, recently announced her engagement to American musician, Nathaniel Motte, on Instagram. In the cutest pic ever, the couple posted a selfie from the airplane on their way home from France with the caption: “Left a girlfriend, came back a fiancé #besttripever.” We cannot wait to watch all the wedding plans get in gear. Are we calling a destination wedding or will they get married in Toronto? And who will design Liz’s dress? Hayley Elsaesser? We know for sure she will wear something totally unique and quirky. We wish the happy couple all the best!
Blind Item: Couples Who Swing Together…
Juice Factor: 8/10
There are tons of power couples in Canada, in various industries. One certain industry has a particular couple that is known for their tendency to have guests over at the house and in their bed… but this is all speculation. As the weeks go by, more and more couples have come to the fore, confessing their experience of being wined and dined by said couple in hopes that something else will materialize. What happens during the work day is all copacetic. What happens at night is a totally different ballgame. Just because Wicked is no longer in business doesn’t mean that Canada’s power couples aren’t exchanging more than just their stock market tips when they go on double dates… Word to the wise: Be wary of that super friendly couple… Unless you’re into that kind of thing, of course.
