July 9th, 2013 // Leave a Comment

She’s really going with the quirky/fucked up look isn’t she?

So this is what Amanda Bynes decided to wear to her court hearing this morning. WTF?

Bynes was arrested in May after building officials called police to complain she was rolling a joint and smoking pot in the lobby. Officers went to her apartment where they say they saw heavy smoke and a bong sitting on the kitchen counter. Prosecutors say she tossed the bong out the window in front of the officers.  Read More »

Poor Lindsay Lohan. She spent her 27th birthday all by her lonesome. Well, Kind of.

The rehab center has a strict “no visitors policy” except on Sundays. Not all hope was lost for Lilo though. Certain visitors are allowed after visitor hours, like lawyers.

Cue Shawn.

I’m worried Nick Stahl won’t quit until he’s dead. I’m not sure what else it’s going to take to get him clean.

The 33-year-old was arrested early this morning after he was caught using meth at a Hollywood motel.

According to police the troubled actor was arrested around 5am when police found him and three other people using the drug. He was in the wrong place at the wrong time, police were at the motel to check on a possible parole violation of someone else. Stahl was arrested, along with the other people he was with.

Rarely do tears stream down my face while writing a post, but this post – Damn! What an amazing way to start off the day! What a great day for human rights (with the Texas abortion bill victory – go Wendy Davis!).

Twitter was flooded with celebrities reacting to the news that the Supreme Court struck down a key part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act on Wednesday and declared that same-sex couples who are legally married deserve equal rights to the benefits under federal law that go to all other married couples.

The decision is a landmark win for the gay rights movement. It voids a section of the law known as DOMA, which was adopted with bipartisan support in Congress in 1996 to deny all benefits and recognition to same-sex couples.  Read More »
