A for Effort?
Last weekend we learned that Lindsay Lohan made a beeline for the E! network studios after just being sprung from rehab to guest host an episode of the late night talk show Chelsea Lately. Last night, that episode aired to RAVE reviews from seemingly everyone on the Internets. Entertainment Weekly, among the publications praising L. Lo‘s performance on the show, rightfully makes clear that all the lurve that Lindsay is getting from her guest hosting gig stems largely from the fact that pretty much every had the lowest of expectations. Her ability to do a job that was better than the worst that everyone expected seems to be the magic formula for all the high praise.

"I’ll be your friend, I’ll help you carry on"
A few weeks ago, Nick Cannon revealed that he would be willing to record new music with Amanda Bynes if she decides to move forward with the production of that rap album that she’s been talking about. But, in the time since Amanda started talking about her new career in music and Nick offered his assistance, she was hospitalized in a mental hospital for evaluation. Today, we get to read an open letter that Nick wrote to Amanda that he published on his official website. Nick and Amanda go way back to their days as Nickelodeon TV co-stars on All That so these two have a history.

On the Loose
LOL! Remember yesterday how we heard that Lindsay Lohan was thinking about extending her stay in rehab a few days to help with her transition back into the real world? Yeah, it turns out that that report was just a bunch of bullshizz because altho L. Lo was due to be released from rehab today, she went ahead and left early yesterday.

There has been much talk about Lindsay‘s intention to turn her life around this time so … we’ll have to wait and see what she decides to do. More »

Turning Over a New Leaf ... Again?
Lindsay Lohan has been locked up in rehab for the past few months and she is just about to get sprung tomorrow … except there’s a new report going around that she’s not ready to leave the safety of rehab just yet. You may recall that we’ve heard reports that Lindsay has become a model patient while in rehab and that she’s decided to cut toxic friends out of her life. We also heard that Lindsay is afraid to leave rehab so, if true, it would make sense that she would want to stay a bit longer. We also learned last week that Lindsay signed a deal with Oprah Winfrey to do a reality TV show/documentary about her recovery once she gets out of the facility so … maybe she just wants to stall for a bit before she starts filming? At this point, we don’t know. What we do know is Lindsay is due to be released from rehab soon … but the question remains, will she stay or will she go? More »

Chinga Chang Records Handled The Whole Driveway Situation
Amanda Bynes is going through quite an ordeal right now, and I’m going to assume that her budding rap career has been put on hold for the time being. Since Amanda was put on a 72-hour psychiatric hold after lighting a fire in a residential driveway (and other disturbing behavior), doctors were able to extend her stay for another two weeks. We’ve also learned that her parents headed to court to file for conservatorship control of their daughter, but were pretty much shut down by the judge. And now, for some for real weird ish. Remember how the homeowner whose driveway was set on fire wanted Amanda‘s parents to pay for the damages? And her parents were all like Hell nawl? Well, once again, hip-hop has saved the day. Click inside to learn about the rap producer who took care of the whole mess.

Her Parents Go to Court Today to attempt a Conservatorship
Yesterday we heard some information that reportedly revealed what Amanda Bynes‘s first hours in the care of psychiatric professionals was like after she was apprehended by police earlier this week for starting a gas fire in the driveway of a stranger’s home. It was reported that Bynes‘s psychiatric doctors were hoping to extend her 72 hour hospital stay to a 2 week hospital stay so that further evaluation could be completed. 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 »

Last weekend we learned that the currently rehabbing Lindsay Lohan signed a deal with Oprah Winfrey and her OWN television network to appear on a multi-episode “docu-series” (ie. reality show) where she will document her “struggle to to stay healthy” once she is released from rehab next month. Today we are hearing just how much money Lindsay will be paid for her involvement in this show and if this report from TMZ is to be believed, she is set to make a cool $2 million. Lohan has turned down other offers to appear on reality TV but it sounds like she simply couldn’t resist Oprah‘s offer … and money. Wow. More »
