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.

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 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?
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
