Look, another thing that Lea‘s doing that she just so happens to be the face of!

Lea‘s official statement:

“I’m overjoyed and beyond honored to be a part of the L’Oréal Paris family,” the actress tells PEOPLE exclusively. “I’m such a fan of L’Oréal Paris not just for all of their amazing products, but for what they stand for. I’m so thankful to be a part of a television show that promotes inner beauty and self-worth. Now to be a part of this amazing family that expresses the same amazing message is such an honor.”

And it looks like Lea’s not the only one who’s inappropriately overjoyed at the prospect of joining the legendary, illustrious brand of L’Oreal Paris—they’re just as hard up to have her. A rep for L’Oreal says:

“Lea is definitely the most accomplished woman of her generation and a role model for young women around the world. We are honored to welcome into the family of L’Oréal Paris. A beautiful woman inside and out, Lea truly exemplifies our brand philosophy, ‘Because You’re Worth It’.”

Other brand ambassadors have included Cheryl Cole, Jane Fonda, Milla Jovovich, Diane Keaton, Beyonce, Diane Kruger, Gong Li, Jennifer Lopez, and Gwen Stefani. Do you guys think Lea Michele is of the ranks of those women? Because Diane Keaton? Wow. Here’s another pretty picture of Lea, schlepping it for L’Oreal.

Ashton and Mila are Totally So Happy Together

[Image Removed Upon Request]

And isn’t it nice to see these two in love, far from the clutches of people like Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes? Isn’t it nice to be able to talk about pure, unadulterated joy instead of pure, unadulterated inebriation? I sure think so.

These photos were taken just yesterday, and they feature Mila and Ashton kissing, holding hands, cuddling, and walking along like there’s not a pissed-off estranged wife lurking in dark corners, just waiting for Mila to get her first wrinkle.

Isn’t love grand, guys?

Did You Watch Dina Lohan on Dr. Phil Yesterday?

A photo of Dina Lohan

I didn’t, because I had to go to the dentist and beg him to cut this stupid wisdom tooth out of my head (he didn’t), and I’m incredibly disappointed. But I have read the quotes and watched the clips, and I think it’s safe to say that she was the trainwreck we all expected she would be.

Let’s see, there was the time that Dina was telling Dr. Phil about the time that crazy ol’ Michael Lohan broke into her house, but she couldn’t call the police because “cell phones weren’t as inept as they are now so I didn’t really have that.” It seems like Dr. Phil let that one go for a while, but before the interview was over, he let her know that “that word doesn’t fit in that sentence.”

At one point, Dr. Phil called Dina “phony and inauthentic,” which is when she chose to flip everyone off, and then when Dr. Phil showed a list of the crimes that Lindsay’s gotten in trouble for, and Dina told him that if they were in New York, “five of them would be obsolete,” to which Dr. Phil was basically just like “whatever.”

Oh, and there was this other time that Dina complimented Dr. Phil’s shoes, and then requested a friendly fist bump, saying “can we pound that?” Her request was denied.

Now let’s watch a few clips I found:

I think I’m going to revoke my previous “drunk” guess and change it to something else. Probably pills or just regular old crazy. What about you guys?

“Hello, Sister Souljah

Just to have a laugh
Was wit’ the fly Brit honeys
While my peers were in tha’ muddies
That’s how I used to roll
(Remember Kosovo)
Now I can’t find my glasses
Cause they’re on my t-shirt
I ain’t grabbin’ no asses
Just avoidin’ gettin’ hurt
Travolta played me once
Cause I was lookin’ pretty good
Now it takes me months
Just to get a little wood
My Black Hawk’s always down
If you know what I mean
So a little glance downtown
Don’t even bother Hillary!
Peace”

Amanda Bynes Locked Herself in A Dressing Room for Two Hours

A photo of Amanda Bynes

Do you think it’s fair to say that it’s about time to stop with the comparisons between Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes and start with the comparisons between Britney Spears and Amanda Bynes? Or, at the very least, it’s time to start forming the theory that Amanda Bynes is the result of some weird time travelling mad scientist who was able to combine the DNA of Lindsay and Britney to form one megabeast known as Amanda Bynes.

For the first little bit, Amanda was certainly channeling Lindsay: the DUI, the complete denial of guilt, the unbelievably entitled tweets to the president. But here lately, Amanda has been giving off a much more crazy vibe, which, as we all know, is Britney’s game.

Here, let’s just read about what Amanda got into yesterday:

Amanda Bynes went shopping today in West Hollywood … and locked herself in a dressing room for nearly 2 hours.

Amanda was shopping at Kin – a hip boutique.  Amanda took some clothes inside the fitting room and stayed for 1 hr. 45 min.

The clerks heard a banging sound coming from inside the dressing room every 10 minutes or so.  One clerk made a distress call to another employee, saying he was concerned about Bynes being hold up for so long.  The employee drove to the store to help, to no avail.  Amanda wouldn’t come out, telling them, “I need more time.”

Amanda finally came out at around 5:30 PM, went to the register and bought a pair of stilettos, a pair of sunglasses and a few other things.

Now get this … as Amanda walked out she noticed she had tried on a bathing suit top that was underneath her dress and told the clerk she forgot it was on.  Amanda then paid for the suit.

Amanda saw a few photogs before leaving and then asked the clerk to call her a cab.  It’s unclear how she arrived at the store.

Afterwards one of the clerks told someone, “I was so worried about her. I didn’t know what she was doing in [the dressing room]. I didn’t know if she was overdosing, or doing drugs or what.”

See, there’s the weird attempted theft, which is Lindsay territory, but really strange behavior, which is more Britney. And I’m not the only one who can see the Britney, because Amanda is now allegedly telling people that she doesn’t need a conservatorship. I can’t find where that story originated, so I’m guessing that this is the original story and that Amanda is having another crazy break. Like Britney.

This girl is just too much.
