Amanda Bynes conservatorship extended

amanda bynes

Amanda Bynes seems to be doing a bit better these days than the last time we checked in with her, but she’s still not out of the woods (and it’s unclear if she ever really will be). With that in mind, a judge in California ruled on Tuesday to extend the conservatorship over what’s left of her fortune until at least June 23, when another hearing will be held on the matter. Oh, and those DUI charges she was facing have also been dropped.

Her parents have control over her finances and medical needs for now, and while it seems like Amanda’s relationship with them has been less than stellar in the past, it has tended to improve when she’s getting proper mental health care.

From People:

“Amanda is doing much better from where she was months ago,” says a family source. “She has her own apartment and is much happier. She and her parents are getting along and Amanda is clear-headed, more focused and has more independence.”

For some reason, I find myself rooting for Amanda and always hoping that this time she gets better will be the one that sticks. Of course, with her level of mental illness, it will be a lifelong battle, but I also think that with proper support and guidance (and medication), she can manage to put together some semblance of a functional life. But she NEEDS to stay out of the spotlight. Hollywood is enough to make even the sanest person crazy, so for someone with real mental health issues, it can be downright fatal.

Jamie Dornan’s publicist has had a rough few days

jamie dornan

Ladies across the world started losing their mind yesterday when it was reported that Jamie Dornan is already sick of the whole Fifty Shades of Grey disaster and wanted O-U-T of both of the franchise’s future installments. This news didn’t sit well with many, especially considering the first movie is still in theatres and one would assume the studio would like it to keep making big box office bucks. Not exactly great timing for your lead star to admit how much it sucks, eh?

All I have to say is, I sure feel bad for Jamie’s publicist, who’s no doubt been tasked with fixing this whole mess before it goes any further. The statement from Camp Jamie is here and in it, we’re promised that he’ll be back as Christian Grey… if only they’ll have him!

“Jamie is delighted that the film is breaking box office records worldwide and whilst the studio has not made any formal announcements about sequels, he is looking forward to making the next film,” his rep told Us Weekly

Right, on a scale of 1 to 10, how much do you believe this bullshit? Jamie Dornan is still in the midst of promoting this shit-show and he’s contractually obligated to show up and seem remotely interested (a tall order, from the looks of things thus far). It’s not really a great time to say that you can’t be bothered to finish off the trilogy, is it? 

What do you think?

Will Jamie Dornan come back for the next 'Fifty Shades' movie?

Lindsay Lohan ordered to redo 125 hours of community service

Lindsay Lohan thought she was being slick when she completed her mandatory community service literally at the eleventh hour – the very day the deadline hit. Of course, her list of “work” she completed was always questionable, and after authorities gave it a closer look, they realised just how much of it was complete and utter bullshit.

From TMZ:

Lindsay Lohan and her community service organization just got slammed by a judge Wednesday morning … a judge who threw out more than half of her hours.

The judge in Lindsay’s probation case ordered LiLo to do another 125 hours … this after the prosecutor called BS on the service she performed.

Most of the hearing was conducted privately in the judge’s chambers, but hizzoner did call the work Lindsay did “unacceptable.”

TMZ broke the story … prosecutor Terry White was indignant over the work Lindsay did for CSV in London, saying in one case she got credit for six hours of community service work … even though four hours of those hours were for acting on stage and the remaining two were for meeting fans.

I mean, come on. Did the community really benefit from coming to see her flop of a West End show? I don’t think so. As for the meeting fans thing, I’d have to say that it’s more like the fans doing Lindsay a service, considering I’m pretty sure without her ego being stroked by people still hanging on to her Mean Girl days, she’d evaporate into thin air. Get outta here with that nonsense.

Madonna ate it at the BRIT Awards – Yikes!

Tonight was the BRIT Awards over in London – think of the Grammys, but slightly (only very slightly) less awkward. Taylor Swift performed, Kanye West performed, even Madonna performed… and promptly ate it when her dancers yanked her backwards down the stairs. Uh oh… someone’s getting fired!

Thankfully, someone was around to take a Vine:

Enjoy this visual for years to come, because it’s so, so good.  What the hell happened here? I mean, potential problems like this are usually what dress rehearsals are for, but… who knows.

Marc Anthony’s father told him he’s ugly

Marc Anthony is not what I would call conventionally handsome, but I also wouldn’t call him ugly because I’m not rude and because beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Obviously Jennifer Lopez thought he was attractive, and I’m sure plenty of other people do, too, like his current wife Shannon de Lima. One of those people was not his father, who apparently raised Marc to believe he’s ugly as sin. Yikes.

During an interview on The Meredith Vieira Show this week (how that’s still even a thing, I don’t know), Marc revealed his dad’s top notch parenting skills and also insisted that it’s all about personality.

“My dad told me early on, he said, ‘Son, we’re both ugly,’” the 46-year-old said. “I swear to God, he says it to this day. And he goes, ‘You work on your personality. It builds character.’”

It all came up while Anthony was discussing his ex-wife Jennifer Lopez and his new wife, model Shannon de Lima, whom he said “I do” to this past November. After Vieira asked how he landed Lima, he responded: “It’s just marketing. I am just great at marketing. I was born with this mug piece — I’m skinny and stuttering.”

I do agree that personality is super important. You could be the best looking man/woman in the world and if you are dumb as a bag of rocks, I don’t have the time of day for you. Enjoy your “mug piece”, Marc.

Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello postponing wedding for ‘Magic Mike 2′

Sofia Vergara is truly a kind-hearted soul. She’s met the greatest lay she’s ever had in her life and they’re going to tie the knot – but that dream wedding will have to wait a while, because unfortunately, Magic Mike 2 needs promoting and Joe Manganiello is going to rise to the occasion.

From Page Six:

“We wanted to get married this summer, but Joe will be busy working and promoting ‘Magic Mike 2.’” The film, based on Channing Tatum’s time as a stripper, comes out July 1.

“We want to get married at a time when we can get away and make time for a honeymoon,” she added, “So the wedding will probably be later this year.” Manganiello jokingly chimed in: “I would love to get married this summer, but I’m going to be too busy promoting my male stripper movie!”

Ha. I seriously love these two as a couple. I don’t know anything about them, I’ve seen all of one episode of Modern Family, etc., but I just think they’re great for reasons I can’t even pinpoint. I actually think they’ll last. THEY MUST. Hotness like this must join forces for the good of us all.

Lupita Nyong’o and Jared Leto are likely an item

jared leto lupita nyong'o

Now here’s some news I think we can all get behind. After all, what’s better than two hot people being hot together? (More on that in the next story.) Lupita Nyong’o and Jared Leto are apparently dating on the low or soon will be, but that rumour’s been floating around for months so I don’t know that it’s all that much of a secret.

From Hollywood Life:

“Lupita is totally up for a romance with Jared!” our source tells us. “She and her boyfriend K’naan split months ago and she’s definitely ready for a relationship with the right guy. She likes Jared … problem is that although Jared loves to flirt he doesn’t seem interested in taking it further than that. When they see each other Jared is so incredibly flirty always touching her and telling her how gorgeous she is. He even talks about taking her out but so far he hasn’t followed through.”

Our insider adds: “He says he’ll call, but then weeks and months go by before they see each other at another awards show.”

Oh no! So Jared Leto’s a flake, basically. Not a good sign – though I guess that explains why he’s 43 and still single. Hopefully these two can work something out because I think they’d be GREAT together.

For what it’s worth, they apparently spent the entire Vanity Fair Oscar afterparty together and were super flirty, so who knows what’s going to happen here.
