Amanda Bynes Nearly Convinced Judge to Release Her From Psych Center, Sources Claim

On Friday, Amanda Bynes was placed on 5150 psychiatric hold and committed to a hospital following two weeks of increasingly erratic behavior.

Amanda’s parents were initially unable to prove that the child star presented a threat to herself or others, but that quickly after Bynes accused her father of sexual assault, then blamed the false allegation on a microchip that had been planted in her brain.

Bynes’s parents worked with former Britney Spears manager Sam Lufti to convince their daughter to fly to Los Angeles under false pretenses. Once in LA, she was placed on a 3-day psychiatric hold.

A hearing was held yesterday to determine if the hold should be extended to 14 days, and remarkably, despite her obvious mental instability as of late, Bynes was nearly able to convince a judge that she should be released from psychiatric care.

Sources say Bynes seemed unperturbed by the proceedings, and casually rattled off a list of reasons she should be set free in a manner that made it clear that she’d rehearsing her argument.

Amanda reportedly maintained a calm demeanor while insisting to the judge that she had not posed a threat to anyone and was not guilty of violating any laws. (Bynes was caught shoplifting twice in one day last week, but no charges were filed.)

Insiders say the judge seemed to be on the verge of granting Amanda her freedom, but instead extended the hold for 3 days, rather than the additional 11 requested by her parents.

Rick and Lynn Bynes are seeking a conservatorship which would grant them legal control over Amanda.

Gia Giudice Thanks Fans for Support, Tweets: Family Forever!

Her mom is going to jail for over a year.

Her dad is going to jail for over three years.

But Gia Giudice is sticking by the side of Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice.

A couple hours after her controversial parents were sentenced to prison for committing various kinds of financial fraud, the 13-year old took to Twitter on Friday and wrote the following:

“Family forever. Such an amazing support system it’s unreal. The little things matter to me but the big things matter to you.”

Gia Giudice on Bravo

A judge decreed late last week that she had to set an example, ordering Teresa Giudice to jail for 15 months.

Earlier that same day, she sentenced Joe Giudice to jail for 41 months.

Despite previous rumblings, it’s pretty clear the Giudices have told their kids about their impending fate, with Teresa starting her prison term on January 5.

During the trial, the couple’s lawyer Miles Feinstein told Judge Esther Salas that Joe Giudice tried to do “everything he could” to exonerate Teresa.

“He wanted his wife to get the best deal she could get,” Feinstein said Thursday. “He is a real man.”

Yup. A real man who wasn’t satisfied being a part of the 1% and who therefore put his family’s future at risk by lying on mortgage and bankruptcy applications.

Teresa and Joe will sit down with Bravo’s Andy Cohen on Monday night to discuss their past mistakes and cloudy future. Because of course they are. 

Teresa Giudice: Table Flipping


And now for the classic. Teresa’s face is priceless as she famously flips the table. Bravo. Bravo.

Matthew McConaughey Goes Full McConaughey in Texas Longhorns Pep Talk! Watch and Get Inspired Now!

Feeling a little uninspired today? Can’t believe it’s still not the weekend? Well on days like this, you just gotta keep livin’, man, L-I-V-I-N, and we’ve got just the video clip to help you do exactly that:

Yes, Matthew McConaughey’s visit to a University of Texas at Austin football practice will help you surf the perfect wave of serenity all the way to the Island of Eternal Truth. Or maybe it’s just really funny. You be the judge:

Following what must be the most zen-like pep talk in history (We’ve titled the speech “A Time to Chill.”), McConaughey leads the team in a round of Wolf of Wall Sreet-style chest thumping – a practice that we imagine will now become a staple in locker rooms across the country.

Sadly, at no point does he spark a doob and ask, “Did you score a touchdown last week? It’d be a lot cooler if you did?”

This glorious footage might beat out Matthew and Woody Harrelson’s Roxbury attire at the Emmys as the Most McConaughey Moment of 2014.

To recap: McConaughey won his first Oscar, starred in TV’s most acclaimed new series, and dominated a Scorsese-DiCaprio production by appearing in one scene.

It was the Year of McConaughey, alright, and if Interstellar is as amazing as the trailers make it look 2015 might be…the Year of McConaughey again.

Hey, time is a flat circle, chief. Alright, alright, alright…

Watch True Detective online at TV Fanatic to enjoy more baffling words of wisdom from the Aristotle of Austin.

Suck it, Julia Roberts!

Chelsea Clinton Gives Birth to Baby Girl!

Chelsea Clinton is a mother for the first time. The global activist and former First Daughter, 34, welcomed a baby girl with her husband Marc Mezvinsky!

“Marc and I are full of love, awe and gratitude as we celebrate the birth of our daughter, Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky,” Clinton wrote late Friday night.

Chelsea Clinton, Husband Marc Mezvinsky

Months after announcing she and Mezvinsky hoped to make 2014 the “Year of the Baby,” Chelsea, confirmed in April that the couple were expecting.

“I certainly feel all the better whether it’s a girl or a boy that she or he will grow up in world filled with so many strong female leaders,” she said.

Appropriately, Bill and Hillary Clinton’s only child made the announcement at a Clinton Foundation event for the empowerment of girls and young women.

Her mom, the former Secretary of State, has been excited for the arrival, stockpiling kids’ books and planning to have a car seat in her own vehicle.

“I want to babysit any chance I get!” the former First Lady said at a political gathering in September, “Bill and I are on constant grandchild watch.”

Chelsea kept a busy pace at the Clinton Global Initiative just days before Charlotte’s arrival. Hopefully now she’ll get some well needed rest (just kidding)!

New parent humor. Congratulations to Chelsea and Marc Mezvinsky on their new baby, and to these other celebs who welcomed kids in 2014 as well:

American Idol judge and all-around snarkmaster Simon Cowell was softened a bit by the birth of his son Eric Philip on February 14. What a Valentine for Simon and girlfriend Lauren Silverman.

Teresa Giudice to Be Placed Under House Arrest?

At some point, it really will happen: Teresa Giudice will be sentenced for committing various forms of financial fraud.

Giudice and husband Joe pleaded guilty to a number of charges a few months ago, a development chronicled this past Sunday night on The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Their sentencing was originally pushed back until September 23, due to the death of Joe’s mother, and now Teresa’s lawyers are angling to get it pushed back again, this time until October 2.

Teresa Giudice on The Real Housewives

As for what a judge may decree once sentencing does come down?

“She will probably get house arrest,” a source tells Us Weekly of the reality star, who has admitted to her role in a bankruptcy scheme and mortgage scheme and now faces up to 27 months in prison.

Ironically, Teresa recently listed her $4 million mansion in New Jersey, so if she is legally stuck at home for awhile… she’ll need to actually find a new home first!

“The great likelihood is that Joe will get some jail time… It’s just a matter of how long,” says Joe Giudice’s attorney, Miles Feinstein.

There’s also been talk that Joe could be deported to Italy when this mess is finally sorted out.

It’s also worth mentioning that the Giudices have four kids. We feel sorry for them that their parents suck so much.

Stacy Keibler Gives Birth to a Girl!

A beautiful young woman has given birth to a beautiful, very young girl.

Stacy Keibler and Jared Pobre are first-time parents!

The part-time actress and TV host and former WWE Diva confirmed the news herself in a blog post this afternoon.

“Jared and I have been blessed with the new love of our lives,” Keibler wrote. “Ava Grace Pobre was born at home on Wednesday, August 20th. We’ve never experienced a level of joy and happiness like this before! Thank you so much for all of the special wishes and positive energy.”

Keibler announced she was pregnant in late March, and then went on to flaunt her growing baby bump on the red carpet… by the pool… while strolling the streets after a workout.

She wasn’t shy about her pregnancy. Not should she have been!

Keibler (who formerly dated George Clooney) and Pobre announced they were expecting just a couple of weeks after they got married in a sunset ceremony on a beach in Mexico.

We send the newly expanded family our very best wishes!

Dance Moms Season 4 Episode 20 Recap: The Long Kiss-Off Goodbye

Tuesday night on Dance Moms Season 4 Episode 20, the Elite Team geared up to end its losing streak with a competition against the Candy Apples.

After subjecting the losers to a personal walk of shame, Abby Lee Miller nabs a former Candy Apple to dance a duet with Maddie. The plot thickens …

Abby has gotten Cathy’s old dancer Gino to partner with Maddie, and perhaps more significantly, Maddie seems to have a clue what’s going on now.

In the pyramid meeting, Abby rubs our girls’ noses in losing two competitions, because if you watch Dance Moms online, you know that’s how she rolls.

Abby tells them to “suck it up” and gives them a lecture on attitude, while this week, IN10sity is in Cleveland, Ohio, which will be the competition site.

That means Cathy and Candy Apples. The duet is “The Girl Has Gotta Be Kissed” and inspired by Abby’s stint as guest judge on Dancing with the Stars.

Maddie is given the lead with Gino (formerly of the Candy Apples), and right away, Maddie and Gino have trouble with the kiss that this entails.

Melissa tells us that Maddie is shy around boys; Abby, of course, forces the issue and Maddie does the kiss. Then she tells the others to Gino’s surprise.

Cathy feels that Abby has a “judge” conspiracy and plans to prove this with the group dance … clearly there is zero love lost between these two.

Tension is palpable as the teams arrive and Cathy insults Gino immediately, but even to the lay person, Gino and Maddie’s duet has some sophistication.

With the group numbers, Cathy’s team goes first and seems to fall short of Abby Lee’s whose dance is much more like a storyline than Cathy’s was.

In the duets, Abby’s duet wins second, which shocks Abby, while Cathy takes first. Cathy celebrates the win, but the groups are reversed, with Abby’s first.

Backstage, Cathy is disappointed, while Abby is relieved about the group and asks Chloe if she’s hurt. Abby makes Gino and his father leave.

This earns the Dance Moms star an insult from Christy, who will no doubt have a few more in store for Abby Lee Miller when we return next week …

Maksim Chmerkovskiy: Retired From Dancing With the Stars!

Dancing’s version of Michael Strahan, Maksim Chmerkovskiy has retired from Dancing With the Stars after winning his first and only title in his 16th season.

During an appearance on The View on Tuesday, July 29, the Ukrainian native announced he will no longer perform on the popular reality competition.

“I’m done dancing,” he said. “I feel like it’s time.”

Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy

“When I came back to the show, it was not the same … I was different, probably,” the 34-year-old explained of his previous departure in February 2013.

“When I came back, I saw all this amazing talent… I looked at it and thought they can do much more and better. I was taking up a huge spot.”

Chmerkovskiy returned for season 18, having missed the previous two, and won the Mirror Ball trophy for the first time with Olympic ice skater Meryl Davis.

After his win, the pro dancer hinted that he was ready to retire from the ABC dancing competition during an interview with Social Life magazine.

“I want Meryl to be the last person I dance with,” Maks said in June.

“The last person I got to be passionate with and care so much for.”

Fan favorite Chmerkovskiy came close with Erin Andrews, Brandy, Kirstie Alley and Hope Solo, but never made it to the winner’s circle until 2014.

He may return to the scorer’s table as a judge in the future, but his last memory as a dancer on the program will be of hoisting that trophy and going out on top.

Here’s a look back on Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis‘ run:

Oscar Pistorius Involved in Bar Brawl, Claims Self-Defense

The defense has rested in the Oscar Pistorius murder trial, but we likely won’t see a verdict handed down until mid-August at the earliest.

In the meantime, the South African Olympic hero is a free man, and while hanging out in the VIP room of a Johannesburg club last night, Pistorius was reportedly involved in a violent altercation with another patron. 

Oscar Pistorius Photograph

TMZ reports that an unidentified man began to question Pistorius about his trial, and Pistorius instigated the violence by poking the man in the chest.

The man responded by shoving the double-amputee sprinter, causing him to fall to the floor.

Pistorius curently stands accused of murdering Reeva Steenkamp, his girlfriend of three months.

His reps don’t deny that the fight took place,  but they claim that Pistorius was simply defending himself against an unprovoked assault.

Similarly, Pistorius’ lawyers don’t deny that he shot Steenkamp through a bathroom door. They do, however, claim that Pistorius believed an intruder was hiding in his bathroom and that he fired to protect himself and his property.

If the judge doesn’t buy Pistorius’ unlikely story, the former national hero may spend the rest of his life behind bars.

Sonja Morgan: Broke and Homeless!

The Real Housewives of New York City star Sonja Morgan, is broke. She’s also basically homeless since she’s renting her Upper East Side townhome to the tune of $25,000 a month to make ends meet.

And that $25,000 a month?

Yeah, that only covers the property taxes on the home and doesn’t even make a dent in the millions the former wife of heir to J.P. Morgan supposedly owes the government.

Morgan, Sonja

While scenes for RHONY are being shot in the apartment, Sonja’s “interns” seem to be the ones who actually live there.

The five-story, five-bedroom home, which contains a gym, sauna, and garden, is a gorgeous place, but Sonja Morgan just can’t afford to keep living there.

She’s trying – and failing – to maintain a high-class profile but her financial and legal woes are making that difficult.

Ultimately, the supposed plan is that Morgan will sell the property, no doubt spinning the story in such a way that she says she was ready to move on to something different for some made up reason that has nothing to do with the fact that she’s living above her means in an attempt to keep up with the Joneses.

That’s not a new phenomenon among the Real Housewives of ANY city, but it will certainly be interesting to watch The Real Housewives of NYC online and see it play out.

Despite the fact that Morgan filed bankruptcy in 2010, she continues to maintain her lavish lifestyle by throwing swanky parties, but it’s all an act. She’s barely hanging on with her salary from the show to keep her financially afloat. I guess selling toasters just wasn’t as lucrative as Morgan thought.

Luckily (or not) she’s not alone when it comes to stars who are broke. She joins the ranks of these famous broke celebrities
