Michael Phelps, Death Stare Goes Viral
Juice Factor: 7/10
The Olympics are in full swing and so are the memes. Coming out of retirement to save Team USA is superstar swimmer and Olympic medalist, Michael Phelps, hitting the pools in Rio to bring home some more medals for his country. But first, intimidate the crap out of his competitor, Chad le Clos, with his now meme-worthy death stare. Just check out the pics that have now gone viral around the world. We would be terrified. The memes are hilarious, though. Looks like Phelps is trying to burn a hole through le Clos. If looks could kill!
Josh Murray Confession on Bachelor in Paradise
Juice Factor: 8/10
On Monday night’s episode of Bachelor in Paradise, former Bachelorette winner, Josh Murray, broke the silence on his failed relationship with Andi Dorfman. In her recent book, “It’s Not Ok: Turning Heartbreak into Happily Never After,” she bashes her ex-fiancé, revealing a crazy fiction that has only painted an image of Josh as a sociopath. “It was the most volatile relationship of my life,” Dorfman writes. But last night, Josh finally speaks up. He says that Andi’s book is complete fiction. The story is absolutely not true, but he’s not letting it get to him. On a date with Amanda Stanton on Monday, she asks about his past relationship with the Bachelorette star. “You have to be a bigger person no matter what kind of lies or egregious things are said about you – you have to try to take the high road.” He adds to the camera, “I can’t comment on specific things in any kind of book that my ex has written because it’s a fictional story. There’s stuff that’s so ludicrous – how do you comment on something like that?” We knew it was all a sham anyway.
Blind Item: Chopping Block at Canadian Publisher
Juice Factor: 9/10
Lately lots of offices and companies have had their own changing of the guard – it’s not unusual to see an entire staff come and go. Usually, it’s on amicable terms – or so Tweets be told. Sources say that one publisher’s superstar editor was actually fired, instead of parting on good terms, as the impression was made publicly. So why all the bad blood? Could it be that the new Editor-in-Chief just wants a fresh start or did this Vogue-esque editrix push it too far with her insolence? We can only assume but close friends confirm, the pink slip was rendered.
Marina Joyce to move to Peru and Build Her Own Temple
Juice Factor: 9/10
A few months ago, the curious case of Marina Joyce, a seemingly cupcake vlogger with a decent following became the exemplar for the Internet gone wrong. She used to be very sweet; had great videos; confidence – everything brands and followers look for in a celebrity. Until all of a sudden, in one video, she introduced her new boyfriend. Since, her vlogs have become increasingly worrisome. Many of her followers started to circulate a conspiracy theory that Marina was being held captive – or that this is the best publicity stunt of the century? Her views skyrocketed during the whole ordeal which gives evidence that she is in fact, kidnapped by Kris Jenner who has given up on her biological children and is now trolling the Internet for metaphorical children to exploit. But just this Sunday, Marina posted a lengthy Facebook message asking her readers to donate money so she can build a temple in Peru, dedicated to Marina, the Goddess of Love. That would be her, if you’re not following. Like, who makes a temple dedicated to themselves? We fear Marina Joyce has gotten involved in the occult. Either that or the Kardashian theory.
Blind Item: Realtor Personality Has a Type
Juice Factor: 7/10
Schmoozing at one of Toronto’s hottest hotel lounges is a no-brainer if you’re in the real estate and developer world. This is where clients come to get wined and dined, drinking the finest of champagne and eating all the world’s delicacies. However, spotted multiple times is one personality in particular – and every time with a different woman. The type remains the same, in fact, the women seem to be carbon copies of each other. Tall, model-thin, chocolate skin, brown straight hair with bangs. They are always spotted getting into a luxury vehicle and hitting other hotspots in the area. Old habits die hard.
Kim Kardashian Snaps Cupping
Juice Factor 8/10
Our never-ending fascination with Kim K just got that much more juicier as she finally snaps about reaching another milestone goal weight, 125 lbs, earlier this week. Her proof? Her choker necklaces are all fitting super loosey goose and her cheekbones are totally chiseled. She has 5lbs left to go so the star has resorted to Chinese medicine, cupping, just like Phelps has been doing to win Olympic gold. Maybe Kim will win the gold medal in waist training? The reality TV darling has definitely been known for trying crazy beauty trends (like breast milk to treat psoriasis) but the cupping is her next big thing – although we’re not sure if she’s trying to treat a neck issue or bake a fresh batch of muffins….
