Talk of the Town: Remembering Kate Spade, Kris Aquino Vs. Mocha, Warriors Vs. Cavs

What people about Town have been buzzing about this week.

1. Designer Kate Spade, 55, is found dead in her apartment.

The fashion designer was found by her housekeeper, along with a note. Though it's still early in the investigation, the NYPD has stated there's evidence that points to death by suicide.

2. Kris Aquino calls out Mocha Uson for “crossing a line.

In an attempt to justify the recent actions of President Rodrigo Duterte, Mocha Uson posted a video of two women kissing Benigno Aquino. Jr. right before his assassination. Kris Aquino went on Facebook Live to tell off Uson for disrespecting her parents and then challenged Uson to meet her “any time and anywhere.”

3. The Warriors and Cavaliers face-off again for the NBA Finals.

The Warriors are up by two games and Stephen Curry set a new record by shooting nine three-pointers on June 4. Despite the Cavaliers having the home court advantage for games 3 and 4, the odds are still stacked against them until the team gets it together. Game 3 will be held tomorrow, June 7.

5. Whale dies in southern Thailand after eating plastic waste.

A team of veterinarians attempted to rescue the struggling animal but, sadly, it died after vomiting 5 plastic bags. Upon conducting an autopsy, eight kilograms of plastic (including 80 bags) was discovered in the whale’s stomach.
