Selma Blair apologizes for erratic behavior
Juice Factor: 8/10
If this story doesn’t make you think twice about mixing prescription drugs and alcohol, we don’t know what will. TMZ recently reported that Selma Blair was removed from a plane and taken away on a stretcher by paramedics after a very loud incident. The 43-year old actress was allegedly seen mixing prescription drugs with alcohol, before screaming, “He burns my private parts. He won’t let me eat or drink. He beats me. He’s going to kill me.” The words were obviously quite concerning – when news broke, we could hear Blair fans getting their pitchforks ready. Luckily (if you can call it luck), Blair spoke to Vanity Fair, stating that there were no cruel intentions… She just blacked out. “I made a big mistake yesterday,” Blair told the magazine. “After a lovely trip with my son and his Dad, I mixed alcohol with medication, and that caused me to black out and led me to say and do things that I deeply regret. My son was with his Dad asleep with his headphones on, so there is that saving grace. I take this very seriously, and I apologize to all of the passengers and crew that I disturbed and am thankful to all of the people who helped me in the aftermath. I am a flawed human being who makes mistakes and am filled with shame over this incident. I am truly very sorry.” Now we all like to kick back and relax on a flight but even we know that altitude + too much to drink = a bad idea… Mix in some prescription drugs and you’ve got a helluva ride. We forgive you, Selma, just make sure you don’t do it again.
Blind Item: Popular teen brand is planning their exit
Juice Factor: 6/10
It seems like retailers are coming and going faster than the speed of light these days. An international brand that recently entered the Canadian market is already getting ready to pack up their bags. The reason? Apparently, their teen targets aren’t willing to dish out their allowance on overpriced crop tops and distressed denim shorts. There’s no word on when the retailer will take their final bow but if you’re a fan of the store, we suggest getting your one-size-fits-all fill before it’s too late.
Gigi is red hot at the MMVAs
Juice Factor: 6/10
This past weekend, Queen Street was shut down and filled to the max with screaming teens, signaling that the MMVAs were back in town. This year, it-girl model Gigi Hadid hosted the award show – a smart move on Much Music’s part, as the award show has since been covered by international publications like WWD, InStyle, Perez Hilton & more – and you better believe she was red hot on the red carpet and in every outfit (there were 6 in total,) after. The long-legged blond beauty stunned in numbers by Mugler, August Getty Atelier, Dion Lee, Elisabetta Franchi and Uel Camilo, with hair and makeup changes to go along with each look.
Blind item: There’s definitely bad blood after this breakup
Juice Factor: 8/10
What do you do when your partner goes bat-sh*t crazy? You get the f*ck out of the relationship! The owner & editor of a popular Canadian website has kicked his assistant editor to the curb after a series of unfortunate events. According to our source, the duo worked amicably for a couple of years until said assistant editor began making unreasonable (re: insane) demands, legal and physical threats, resulting in the assistant editor’s firing and a restraining order. We guess it wasn’t a pleasure doing business.
Real Housewife of Atlanta Star bites her tongue
Juice Factor: 7/10
Rumors of a romantic relationship between Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx have been swirling for years – ever since they were spotted dancing together at a charity event back in 2013. Since then, the duo has denied, denied, denied any romantic connections, stating they’re just ‘friends.’ So when the Real Housewife of Atlanta star and friend of Foxx, Claudia Jordan, recently came forward stating that the two are, in fact, a couple and that Foxx is, ‘very happy with her,’ media and gossip columns across the globe rejoiced. Unfortunately for them, Jordan is now taking back what she has said about the supposed couple. Jordan recently spoke with Entertainment Tonight, stating, “I have no knowledge of Jamie with Katie at all. I’ve never seen them together. He’s never told me he’s dating her. I don’t have the knowledge of this being fact. I don’t. I misspoke.” Too bad. We were really gunning for a little half-brother or sister for Suri.
Iggy Azalea and Nick Young are officially done
Juice Factor: 6/10
Finding out your fiancé cheated on you is horrible news. Finding out via the Internet and in the public eye… Even worse. After a video surfaced of Nick Young confessing to hooking up with a 19-year-old girl, shit hit the fan, however, shortly after, Azalea claimed things were ‘good’ and that there wasn’t any drama at home, ‘just on the internet,’ while wearing her engagement ring on Ellen. After a few months, Azalea has confirmed via Instagram that her and the LA Lakers player have broken off their engagement, stating, ‘Unfortunately, although I love Nick and I have tried and tried to rebuild my trust in him – It’s become apparent in the last few weeks I am unable to. I genuinely wish Nick the best. It’s never easy to part ways with the person you planned your entire future with, but futures can be rewritten and as of today mine is a blank page.’ Do what you gotta do, girl.
