Total Loss of Control
Early yesterday we learned that Amanda Bynes‘s psychiatric doctors successfully convinced the court to grant them temporary conservatorship control over her person and, therefore, extended her stay in the hospital under their care for another 30 days. Today we learn that the court took matters one step further and granted Amanda‘s mother Lynn Bynes temporary conservatorship over her finances. It has been reported that Amanda has about $3 million in savings and Lynn now has control over how that money is spent (in regards to Amanda‘s living situation, her bills, etc.). Altho these conservatorships are currently temporary, as it stands right now, Amanda Bynes has no legal control over any aspect of her life. More »

Docs Win a Temporary Conservatorship
A few weeks ago we learned that doctors treating Amanda Bynes in a psychiatric hospital here in SoCal successfully petitioned the court to extend her initial 72 hour psychiatric hold to 2 weeks. Today, Bynes‘s parents were planning to go to court to petition the court to grant them conservatorship control over their daughter’s person and finances … but it sounds like Amanda‘s doctors beat them to the punch. At a court hearing this morning, Bynes‘s doctors successfully petitioned the court to grant them a temporary medical conservatorship so that they can keep her hospitalized for another 30 days. It sounds like Amanda will not be getting out of the hospital anytime soon. More »

Smalls. You're Lit'rally Killing Our Childhoods.
Devastating news to report to y’all today. Remember how we got to see all those awesome pictures of The Sandlot reunion tour the other day? And remember how that story inspired our super-hot, super-fun Throwback Cuties of The 90s post? Well, today’s update is not so fun. Tom Guiry, the actor who played the lead role in The Sandlot (you may remember him as ‘Smalls‘) was totally busted the other night after attempting to board a plane… completely wasted. Cops arrived on the scene and Guiry apparently thought it would be a good idea to head-butt one of them. Le sigh. Click inside for more bummer news about one of our favorite childhood stars.

Today we get to see photos of MC at the NYC premiere of her new film The Butler and as you can see in the photos below, the still-recuperating Mariah attended the event with another fabulously adorned arm sling for the occasion. She looked good, y’all. Check it out below. More »

Today we learn that the doctors were successful in getting the extension and Bynes will remain under the supervision and care of these medical professionals for the next 2 weeks. Additionally we are reminded today that Bynes‘s parents will go to court today to ask for conservatorship control of their daughter in the wake of her hospitalization earlier this week. It looks like things have gotten seriously serious very quickly where Amanda Bynes‘s mental health is concerned. UPDATE: Bynes‘s attorney has filed paperwork to fight this hospitalization extension, Amanda wants out now! More »
Amanda's Parents Officially File for Conservatorship
Yesterday we learned that Amanda Bynes‘s 72-hour stint in the mental hospital may be extended for up to 2 weeks and right now we get to hear new details REPORTEDLY from her hospital stay thus far. Earlier today we learned that Bynes will not be charged for any crimes resulting from that driveway fire she set earlier this week … so that’s a positive thing for her. But according to TMZ, her time in the hospital has had its ups and downs. For the most part, the TMZ report claims, Amanda has been lucid and “normal” but apparently she melted down for about an hour, resulting in the need for her to be physically restrained. TMZ is claiming flat out that Amanda has been diagnosed with “schizophrenic tendencies” which, if true, would explain a lot. Click below to learn more about Amanda‘s reported time in the hospital. UPDATE: Amanda‘s parents have filed for conservatorship control over her, details below. More »
Signs of Schizophrenia? Her Parents to the Rescue?
Yesterday we learned that troubled former actress Amanda Bynes was apprehended by police and admitted to a hospital for psychiatric evaluation under an involuntary 5150 hold order after she reportedly set a gas fire in the driveway in front of a stranger’s home in Thousand Oaks, CA Monday night. A 5150 hold requires that the patient be released from psychiatric care after a maximum of 72 hours if they are determined to be of sound mind. Today we learn that Bynes may not be of sound mind at all because it is being reported that her involuntary psychiatric hold may last up to 2 weeks. Amanda‘s parents have gotten involved with this latest gas fire incident and are reportedly maintaining that Amanda must pay for the damage done due to the fire … and TMZ is reporting that their “sources” are claiming that Bynes may be suffering from schizophrenia (a dubious claim, at best, considering the source of the information). There’s a lot of Amanda Bynes news to update so … let’s get to it, shall we? More »
Amanda Bynes, the troubled former actress who has been wreaking havoc on NYC and the surrounding area for the past few months, has made her way back home to LA and was apprehended by police last night after she reportedly started a “small campfire” in the driveway of a stranger’s home. As I understand it, Amanda had a bizzy and very odd night last night. First she was caught trespassing on the property of a retirement home in Thousand Oaks, CA then she was found next to a burning fire that she supposedly set in the driveway of someone’s home. Police questioned her and determined that she needed to be hospitalized under the 5150 psychiatric hold for the next 72 hours for evaluation. Looking back at the odd behavior she has exhibited in the past year, this development is not at all very shocking to anyone, I don’t think. More »
