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 »

She dislocated her shoulder, y'all
While filming one of the seemingly endless music videos that she has been making for the various version of her new single Beautiful, Mariah Carey was injured on the set of a video she was filming on Sunday. It turns out that Mimi dislocated her shoulder and had to be rushed to the hospital for care. Carey‘s spokesperson says that she will be “fine” and will be back to work as soon as this coming weekend but I can’t imagine that MC enjoyed having her shoulder dislocated at all. Ouch! More »

"My daughter has asked that I ... "
About a week ago we learned that Paris Jackson, the only daughter of the late Michael Jackson, continues her recovery in medical care after she attempted suicide earlier this month. At the time, we heard that Paris has a long way to go before she is fully recovered. Today we are hearing from Paris‘s biological mother Debbie Rowe who has piped up to speak, seemingly, on behalf of her daughter. Despite the fact that Rowe asked “for privacy” in the wake of Paris‘s suicide attempt, she appears willing to break that privacy to speak publicly … after all, she was the person talking to Entertainment Tonight on the day that Paris was admitted to the hospital after her attempt. Debbie says that her daughter asked her to relay a message to fans … you can read that message below. More »
