Chicago police have charged a 14-year-old boy in the horrific gang rape of a girl, 15, that was broadcast over Facebook Live last month. Authorities are still however searching for 5 or 6 other assailants. But worst of all, the teen survivor will ‘need help for a long time,’ according to a case detective.

It’s one of rock and roll’s biggest nights, as five major acts will join the other legends in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Before groups like N.W.A. and Cheap Trick receive rock’s highest honor, here are some facts about this year’s Hall of Famers.
How should YOU handle a breakup?
Kristin Cavallari never seemed like the type to get dumped, but apparently it happens to everyone at some point in their lives. The Hills starlet and fiance Jay Cutler called off their engagement just over a week ago. Never one to let grass grow under her feet, the 24-year-old reality star was out partying less than a week after the split, flirting with a throng of men. Is she handling her breakup the right way?
The horrified dad watched in horror as a man scooped up his toddler son on a busy Chicago beach, and began to walk away with him.
Armando Uvalle leaped into action and grabbed back Isaiah, 2, just seconds before he disappeared into the crowd with his alleged kidnapper! Is this your worst nightmare?
The school is trying to encourage healthy eating and does not want students bringing in certain lunches and snacks from home.
At Little Village Academy, a public school in Chicago’s West Side, students are not allowed to enjoy the lunches their parents prepare for them at home. Instead, unless they have a legitimate medical excuse, the children must eat the food served in the cafeteria in order to protect them from their family’s unhealthy meal choices. What? This is absurd!
Can you imagine struggling on foot through a snowstorm to give birth? One woman had to do just that after going into labor in stormy Chicago this week!
Being stranded in your house is bad, but being snowed-in while you’re in labor is WAY worse! When two feet of snow fell on the Windy City Wednesday (Feb. 2), 29-year-old Julie Johnson had no choice but to trudge through the mounds of snow and ice to deliver her baby! Could you imagine?
It’s a battle of the blondes! Who do YOU think looked hotter?
Jennifer Aniston turned up the heat at the March 11 premiere of The Bounty Hunter in London, showing off her killer legs in a tight sparkly silver mini — but she’s not the only blonde we’ve seen in a dress like that recently. Jessica Simpson – who will be appearing alongside Jen on Good Morning America 15 – strutted her stuff in a similar outfit at the after party celebrating little sis Ashlee‘s November debut in Chicago on Broadway! Which blonde pulled the look off better, Jen or Jess?
Oprah, are you channeling your inner President Obama again? 5700 Wilshire Blvd is about to become the 1600 Pennsylvania Ave of the entertainment industry when Lady O moves to Tinseltown
It’s going to be a Hollywood-style takeover when Sergeant Oprah Winfrey prepares to invade Los Angeles and wrap up her 24-year talk show in Chicago. And it appears that O, 55, may have a pretty powerful partner-in-crime: at least location wise. Ryan Seacrest confirmed on his talk show, On Air With Ryan Seacrest, this morning, Jan. 22, that Oprah is taking over a massive amount of office space – nearly 60,000 freakin’ square feet – in Ryan’s office building at 5700 Wilshire Blvd.
We know how Oprah rolls – yeah, that means she doesn’t do anything in a small way – which is why we weren’t surprised that she the talk show queen has already specially requested that a Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf coffee shop be built inside the building before her arrival.
Is there one type of guy you just can’t stay away from — even though it’s bad news for you?
Oh Jessica Simpson, will you never learn? Smashing Pumpkins lead singer Billy Corgan is just the latest in a long line of celebrities you’ve dated. We know you and Billy are carrying on a secret affair (hello, do you think we didn’t notice that you snuck him in as your date to see your sister Ashlee in Chicago on Broadway Dec. 4?) but we still can’t help but think that with your track record this relationship might not be for the best.
Soak it all in, Ash — you deserve the applause!
Forget that time she lip-synched on “Saturday Night Live.” Forget that time she was booed at at the Rose Bowl. Ashlee Simpson-Wentz CAN sing live — and you should see her do the Charleston! We were lucky enough to see Ashlee up close at last night’s performance of Chicago on Broadway, and she wowed us from her first wraspy note to her standing ovation-inspiring final bow. Read more
Would you ever want your hair to match your man?
Ashlee Simpson-Wentz and Pete Wentz showed up to Ashlee’s Chicago Broadway debut with shockingly similar looks and hairdos! We wonder if Pete was just trying to support his recently raven-haired wife on her big night or if they’re starting to meld into one person. Let’s hope we don’t see Ken Paves, Ashlee’s main hair guy, around little Bronx Mowgli with the black dye anytime soon! Read more
Talk about going all out in bells, whistles, & sparkles
Jessica, you’re one loyal sister. After defending Ashlee’s honor when she was let go from Melrose Place, you showed up front and center at her Broadway debut Nov. 30, as Roxie in Chicago. And you looked fantastic in a sequin Collette Dinnigan dress Read more
Ashlee made her big Broadway debut in Chicago last night!
But it’s not the first time Ashlee Simpson has played sexy criminal Roxie Hart. Ashlee headlined Chicago in London in 2006, and her performance was hailed as “dazzling and near flawless” by This Is Local London. Big sis Jessica Simpson was definitely impressed by Ashlee’s turn on the Great White Way. “Roxie was all Heart!” Jess tweeted last night. “Watching her up on that grandiose stage made me the proudest sister in the world. I love ya honey, I love ya! Grrrrrrr.” Wow, now we really can’t wait to see her live! Read more
