Calvin Harris Responds to Fans About Breakup & deletes comments
Juice Factor: 6/10
After a long vow of silence (and a few messages secretly exchanged with Megan Rees), Calvin Harris finally took to Instagram to answer a few questions from some of his fans asking him about his split with Taylor Swift – and her subsequent relationship with Tom Hiddleston. Which, by the way, is also reportedly on the rocks. T-Swift, get it together, girl. So what did Calvin Harris say to a fan when asked why he didn’t tell his side of the story in their breakup? Harris responds: “she controlled the media and this situation, I had no idea what was going on.” So, as Taylor calls the shots, at the end of the day, it’s no wonder Calvin Harris describes his current situation with this four-letter F word: FREE.
Blind Item: Canadian Event Planner Under Serious Fire
Juice Factor: 8/10
This sweeter than sugar Canadian event planner is all roses and champagne until it’s time to pay the bill. Sources say that this planner is known in the industry as the one who doesn’t compensate employees the way they deserve – or as we’ve heard through the conga line, at all. Problem is, when you cross the wrong intern (with obvious powerful connections,) you end up with threats of legal action being taken against you. Our words of advice? Watch out for this event planner. Their overpriced services are probably being jacked to make amends for past sins… and pay off a lawyer or two.
Khloe Kardashian birthday party – did Rob and Blac Chyna crash it?
Juice Factor: 6/10
We all knew this day would come and obviously for Kris Jenner, she’s willing to accept her son’s girlfriend with open arms now that their new show is slated to air on E!. So, yes, as TMZ reported, Blac Chyna is now back in the good books with the family. She was spotted at Khloe Kardashian’s birthday bash at Hollywood’s Dave & Busters (like, who goes there for their 32nd birthday?) singing with Kylie and making Snapchat appearances with Kim, too (using the angel filter, obviously). TMZ also alleges that Rob and Chyna are getting a 7-figure paycheque for their new show – talk about putting away for a college fund! Let’s hope this couple knows a few things about saving and RRSPs because personally, we would never watch a show about them (but that’s just us).
Blind Item: International Luxury Brand Hidden Family Turmoil
Juice Factor: 9/10
In the game of musical chairs and luxury fashion, what you see on the outside isn’t always indicative of reality. Why did Raf Simons leave Dior, really? These are questions that will forever remain unanswered – except when someone overhears one of the heirs of a luxury brand disapproves of a certain creative director who will remain unnamed. This heir is definitely unhappy about all the attention the house’s creative director has gotten over the years. Calling the ready-to-wear unimportant and always putting emphasis on the heritage of the brand, something the creative director has been shying away from in favour of progress. So what’s it gonna be? Another big change for one of the world’s biggest brands? Another musical chairs of creative directors? Or will the luxury scion keep his mouth shut and opinions to himself? You heard it here first.
Jamie, Jamie, Jamie: The Blogger on Everybody’s List, but why?
Juice Factor: 6/10
After being named one the top style bloggers to follow in 2016 by US Weekly, Jamie Chung follows up by gaining front-page coverage on TMZ documenting her recent trip to Dominican Republic with her girl squad, Cara Santana, and Ashley Madekwe. But guys, doesn’t it makes sense that the actress who got her start on MTV reality circuit gets named the top style blogger? She’s already famous and has a famous husband. Duh. Sources say that she’s got the only type of power brands are looking for: DIE-HARD FANS. It’s reported that she can bring out the most fans to any event or meetup than any other blogger right now. Wherever Jamie tweets that she’s going to be, fans follow in drones. They come out of the woodwork like they are just waiting for her to be like, ‘hey guys, come to Starbucks at the corner of this and that, I’ll be there in 5 minutes,’ and boom! Everyone’s buying the same frappuccino flavour as her. That’s exactly what brands want right now. But buyer beware, it will cost you the big bucks to hire her… or will it? Sometimes what you see isn’t all gold…
RHOC Star Vicki Gunvalson Fails at Repairing Friendships
Juice Factor: 5/10
After the whole fake-oh-fake cancer scandal with ex-boyfriend, Brooks, our Real Housewives of Orange County veteran (legit, she’s been on the show since its inception) has been having a really hard time getting the other cast members to forgive her. Despite the tears and apologies to Heather on her boat cruise, Vicki has got to realize that it takes more than that to get your friends back. This week’s episode was all about recounting Vicki’s pathetic attempt at patching things up with Heather, Tamra, Shannon, and Meghan. On the other hand, Kelly, the newest cast member, also reveals that her marital situation isn’t what it seems on the outside. She was in fact divorced from her current husband for two years before marrying him again because he was a control freak. She tells the girls over pizza and we’re all like…. No wonder you’re buddy, buddy with Vicki. Also, can someone tell us why Meghan is even on the show?
