Michael Phelps “deeply sorry” for his DUI arrest

Michael Phelps

Dear God, what’s wrong with people? Early Tuesday morning, Michael Phelps – yes, the weed smoking Olympic swimming champ, as the media keeps pointing out – was arrested and charged with a DUI. He was driving around Baltimore, MD at about 1:45 am and was pulled over for doing 84 MPH in a 45 MPH area. He failed his sobriety test.

So what’s he got to say for himself? Well, he’s “deeply sorry”, of course.

“Earlier this morning, I was arrested and charged with DUI, excessive speeding and crossing double lane lines,” Phelps said in a statement. “I understand the severity of my actions and take full responsibility. I know these words may not mean much right now but I am deeply sorry to everyone I have let down.”

You’re right – those words don’t mean anything at all. How hard is it NOT to get behind the wheel of a car when you’re wasted? Honestly! Especially when you’re rich and can, say, afford to call a taxi or hire a personal driver to take your sorry ass wherever you need to be at 2am? Get out of here with that “sorry” bullshit. Imagine how sorry you WOULD have been if you’d have killed someone because you thought you were a tough guy who could drive home under the influence?  Ugh.

Amanda Bynes got kicked out of fashion school

Oh, dear. I think we’re all feeling a bit of deja-vu these days with Amanda Bynes, who seems to be back on the path to total meltdown. She got arrested earlier this week for another DUI, but it seems her troubles go far beyond that. As in, she also got kicked out of fashion school for smoking weed and exhibiting “bizarre behaviour” and since her parents think she is fine and doesn’t have any mental illness, they won’t get their conservatorship back and basically something really bad is probably going to happen.

From TMZ:

Amanda Bynes was out of control at her fashion school … showing up high and offering fellow students money to do her homework … and we’re told it got so bad she was kicked out.

Several classmates at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Irvine say Amanda has shown big signs of trouble for a while … and various people have told us she often went to class high on weed.

Student Rachel Loritz tells TMZ …  Amanda often ditched classes … but even when she showed up, she was clearly high, and not good at hiding it … she almost always wore sunglasses and laughed out loud at inappropriate times.

We’re told the pendulum would often swing and she would then get in “horrendous arguments.” Rachel says … Amanda paid fellow students to do her homework .. and some took her up on it. Rachel says she rejected Amanda’s offer.

We’re told Amanda was caught cheating off someone during a test … and when she was called out she threw a fit. Multiple sources tell us Amanda was kicked out of the school last month.

Aw, man. What the hell, Amanda? Like I said yesterday, I’m sort of out of words in this situation. Her parents refuse to believe she has an issue and therefore can’t (and won’t) help her, Amanda herself is going off the rails again and is off her meds… this is just a bad situation all around and either she’s going to get 5150′d again soon (which apparently, according to another TMZ article, authorities are ready to do as soon as it becomes necessary) or even worse. It’s a shame for her – especially since she has no one around to help her since she clearly can’t help herself.

Jason Derulo didn’t want to marry Jordin Sparks

Jason Derulo and Jordin Sparks recently ended their three-year relationship and no one really understood why. They seemed to really be happy together and worked well… but all good things must come to an end, I suppose. Especially since Jordin really wanted to get married and Jason was feeling pressured and did NOT want to walk down the aisle.

From ABC News:

“Though I think it is a private matter and intended to keep my break-up Jordin personal, due to bogus and irresponsible lies being reported by insensitive media outlets it became necessary for me to comment,” Derulo told ABC News. “I spent three great years with Jordin and she is one of the most amazing people that I have ever met. But as in all relationships there are ups and downs and at this time we have decided to amicably part. Infidelity, cheating or deceit played no part in our relationship or our break-up, and I hope that people respect our privacy as we move forward with our lives.”

From People:

Derulo denied any infidelity or ego problems, but he did admit to host Ryan Seacrest that time apart because of their busy schedules created stress in the relationship.

“It may have weighed on her more than it weighed on me,” Derulo told Seacrest. “She was in [a] frustrated space a lot.”

Though he says expectations and “pressures of marriage” were a point of contention for him, Derulo has no plans on avoiding performing songs like his hit single “Marry Me.”

“I think it’ll be tough to perform a lot of different songs,” said the singer. “But maybe it’ll be special in a different way because that was a huge time in my life.”

Ah, well. At least it seems to actually be amicable with them and they were able to end things maturely (at least so far).
