Hollywood Update, August 12, 2013


Brace yourself, because I’m about to discuss three celebrities that I know we are all tired of hearing about. However, I come bearing good news, so stay with me here.

What Happened to Amanda Bynes?

Amanda Bynes has been in the hospital for a few weeks now, but a lot has happened. She was originally under a 5150 hold, which grants doctors the right to hold her for 72 hours. When the 72 hour hold was set to expire, doctors asked the court to allow them to hold her for another two weeks. Right away Amanda tried to challenge the hold and requested a hearing, saying that she was fine and being held illegally. At the last minute she decided that it was probably better for her to wait until the medications started working before she showed up in court.

When the two week extension was about to expire, a new hearing was scheduled for Amanda’s parents to request that the judge grant them conservatorship over Amanda and her estate while she worked to get better. Again at the last minute, doctors asked the judge to come to the hospital to hold an emergency hearing and grant them permission to extended Amanda’s hold for another 30 days. The judge agreed, and then later in the day at the scheduled hearing gave Amanda’s mother conservatorship until the end of September.

Sources say that Amanda is actually doing better and has had a huge breakthrough. Her parents even brought her dog Sherbert to visit her and that was said to brighten her mood.

It sounds like this is the beginning of a huge change in Amanda’s life for the better and I personally can’t wait to see a much happier and healthier Amanda. What do you think?

Where is Lindsay Lohan?

Lindsay Lohan finished her three-month court ordered stay in rehab. She emerged looking happy and healthier than she has in years. One of her first stops after rehab was at the set of Chelsea Lately where she guest hosted the show in Chelsea Handler’s absence. The reviews were overwhelmingly positive. Everyone was excited to see a happy Lindsay poke fun at herself on the show. Many of the jokes were obviously scripted, but even the times you could tell she said something off-script she was very funny.

Lohan has also sat down with Oprah for an interview that will air this weekend on Oprah’s Next Chapter. She is also reportedly filming an eight-part docu-series where OWN cameras are following Lindsay post-rehab to document her recovery.

Lindsay has been spotted out shopping with her sister, she has had a drug/alcohol free family night, and she is said to be shopping for a new apartment to rent where her sober companion will stay with her. I have not had this much hope for Lindsay’s recovery in a long time. I really hope she sticks with it this time. Do you think Lindsay is finally back on track?

Chris Brown. Again.

Chris Brown tweeted that after he releases this new album he is RETIRING from music. Yes. You read that right. RETIRING.

Brown tweeted that the fame was great when it was about the music, but being famous for “ a mistake” he made when he was 18 just isn’t worth the spotlight anymore. Sources have since come out and stated that he’s just in a bad place and he will get through it and won’t let the negative publicity win and force him into retirement.

I hope he does get through it, but I also hope that he still decides that retirement is the best option. I wouldn’t be sad if Chris Brown disappeared into oblivion, never to be heard from again. Do you think Chris Brown will really retire and disappear?

    I missed Lindsay Lohan on Chelsea Handler. i wanted to see it! I hope that both she and Amanda Bynes are back on the right track. I really want to see them ok. I do think that Chris Brown needs to step out of the spotlight, maybe not forever but enough time to himself a “reset” in the public eye.

      I really want to see them succeed, too! I am really hoping that this is it and both of them are finally going to make it this time. I also agree that Chris Brown does need to at least take a break and work on himself for a little while. He needs some “me time” to figure out who he is. And give us some time to stop seeing the bad publicity about him. I like the idea of a “reset.”
