Bill Cosby will stand trial for assault charges
Juice Factor: 10/10
It’s been over a decade since Bill Cosby was first accused of sexual assault and this week, a judge has ruled that Cosby will stand trial for assault charges. It’s a small victory that provides a glimmer of hope for his victims. The once ‘picture perfect’ TV dad faces three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault from a 2004 case. If convicted, each charge carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison, though the judge has the option to have him serve concurrently, meaning he could serve just 10 years. Cosby has been accused of sexual misconduct by more than 50 women.
Blind Item: The secret to this pint-sized media darling’s bubbly personality
Juice Factor: 8/10
This media darling is always hitting the latest events, whether it be for fashion, food or just good old fun. While she does her own writing, it’s her personality that gets her invites to the city’s best events. The popular pint-sized personality can be found bouncing around from clique to clique, like a ball full of energy. Her secret? It’s white and it goes right up your nose. While the party drug is nothing new to the Toronto scene, it might surprise some to know that the habit isn’t just a weekend thing for said media darling, but an everyday survival tool.
Anne Hathaway throws unintended shade at the Kardashians
Juice Factor: 6/10
If you thought Anne Hathaway was a big bore… you’re completely right. The Alice Through the Looking Glass star recently posted and quickly removed a meme of her co-star that read, “in a world of Kardashians, be Helena Bonham Carter.” Shortly after, the brunette starlet posted an apology that read, “post removed for unintended shade thrown.” We so want to send snaps to Hathaway for her safe, but snarky comment, but are completely off-put by her ‘good girl’ act. Looks like this new mama has a no drama policy.
Blind Item: Clinic owner uses PR for pick-ups
Juice Factor: 9/10
Ladies, beware. A certain partner at a Toronto cosmetic and beauty clinic is using press releases and media invites to pick-up women. Apparently, the dapper fellow charms women with his good looks but goes from Dr. Jekyll to Mr. Hyde, real quick. One of our sources claims the clinic partner tried to get rough after she denied hooking up with him. Be careful of the next RSVP you send out because there’s a predator on the prowl.
Spotted: LeBron James at the Shangri-La
Juice Factor: 7/10
Our eyes spotted LeBron James at the Shangri-La Hotel (his apparent hotel of choice in the 6ix,) relaxing after playing a losing game against the Raptors in Toronto this past weekend. The Cleveland Cavaliers were also spotted around the city, partying much harder than they ought to during the Eastern Conference Finals. We guess the Raptors can thank Toronto’s boisterous party scene for the Cavaliers poor form.
