Sam Lutfi Defends "Work" With Britney Spears and Amanda Bynes in Bizarre Open Letter

Sam Lutfi, Amanda Bynes’ friend and Britney Spears’ former “manager,” is defending his “work” with the stars in a bizarre open letter that has Spears’ camp on high alert.

Evil Lurks Behind Her

Lutfi writes on XOJane (dot) com that so many of the things written about his relationships with troubled celebrities like those two are mere misconceptions.

“I’ve worked in Hollywood for a long time,” says Lutfi, who was instrumental in getting Amanda Bynes placed under a 5150 hold earlier this month.

“I am a problem solver, and I care about helping people get out of what may seem like some of their more difficult places in life,” writes the mysterious character.

“Over the years these experiences have led me to see what happens when too much fame and too much money can sometimes get the best of celebrities.”

This, Sam Lutfi says, is “why you have seen me associated with some of the more famous celebrities when they are in their most trying hours.”

Britney Spears, Amanda Bynes and Courtney Love are among those he name-checks, and Britney’s team is none too pleased about that reference.

Calling Sam’s letter “disgusting and appalling” an insider said he’s “obsessed with Britney, and is one of the main reasons why Britney has a bodyguard around the clock!”

“Britney’s dad, Jamie, won’t take chances when it comes to Sam; Jamie believes that given the opportunity, Sam would try to worm his way back into Britney’s life again.”

“Her life was in shambles when Sam was with her. Inviting photographers into her house so they could get to know Britney as a person … who does that?”

“Someone who wants to be a celebrity.”

Britney Spears Bikini Wallpaper


Most people can only fantasize about Britney Spears with wallpaper like this. David Lucado could wallpaper himself with Britney’s body and he let it slip away.

In recent weeks, Lutfi had insinuated himself into Amanda Bynes’ inner circle, six and a half years after Spears’ camp cut him off and most people forgot about him.

“All I can tell you is that Amanda is getting the help that she needs and that I am working closely with her and her family,” he says of his latest project.

He wants to “move on from the tabloid sensationalism of her ‘breakdown’ and concentrate on what a rare, talented young woman she has always been and continues to be.”

Bynes, though, has grown increasingly wary of his motives as well. To hear Spears’ camp tell it, they are smart to keep him at arms length and then some:

“If Sam did indeed have nothing but the best intentions, why does he need go public with it? Just look at the creepy pictures Sam posted in the XOJane story with celebrities.”

“It seems like he’s trying to prove he’s an A-lister. What is his job exactly? Sam says he has worked in Hollywood for years, but in what capacity?”

“During Sam’s libel and defamation lawsuit against the Spears family, he admits he has had no professional work in Hollywood that paid him more than $10,000.”

The mystery deepens. But we’d sure as heck stay away from this dude if we were you, or any celebrity going through a tough time, or a great time.

Just steer clear is the point.

Amanda Bynes is Dope

The Blacklist Season 2 Episode 5 Recap: It’s the Plague!

The Blacklist got its Da Vinci Code on for The Blacklist Season 2 Episode 5.

The latest installment of this NBC hit was all about secret organizations and hidden maps in priceless works of art. And let’s not forget about those plague-ridden bones.

The concept of terrorists using biological warfare is certainly a very real and a very scary one, but a group digging up ancient bones in order release the plague seems a little ridiculous.

Not that The Blacklist is really aiming for realism on a weekly basis, of course.

Once Samir and Liz were exposed, it was obvious a cure for this disease would be found So there was scarcely any drama to be wrought from their temporary quarantine.

Still, we’re assuming most viewers were okay with this because there main focus was on Red and Liz. Did the episode reveal any more about their relationship?

Red was anxious to track down a woman implied to be his daughter, though never confirmed, and he relied used both on his criminal and his legal resources to do so.

Liz was jealous. But not jealous enough to reveal that Tom is hidden behind her basement door.

In the end, Red tracked down the girl in question, Zoe Dantonio, and she does look a lot like Liz.

But it remains unclear what this means and we’re left to wonder for another week whether Red is actually Liz’s dad. Sigh.

Is everyone else as frustrated as we are by the series dragging out this key plot point? Would you like to see it resolved sooner than later?

Go watch The Blacklist online via TV Fanatic if you need to catch up and sound off now!

Tori Spelling: Hospitalized, Quarantined Due to Mysterious Illness

Tori Spelling was rushed to an LA hospital over the weekend after displaying a wide array of worrisome symptoms.

Sources say Spelling was coughing uncontrollably and having difficulty breathing. She was reportedly running a high fever which caused hospital staff to quarantine the reality star.

As troubling as all that sounds, there are two important facts that make Tori’s make condition somewhat less dire:

1. Despite rumors to the contrary Tori is not pregnant, and 2. Tori does not have Ebola, which is something that her publicist actually felt the need to mention. 

Obviously, Tori is very sick, but insiders say it’s most likely a bad case of the flu. She’s expected to make a full recovery within the next week, and she was quarantined merely out of an “abundance of caution.”

Most likely, Tori will be released from the hospital later today, and she’ll probably have to respond to accusations that she made the whole thing up to drum up ratings for her reality show.

After all, there’s evidence to suggest Tori faked Dean McDermott’s affair with Emily Goodhand just to make her life more compelling to television audiences.

Also, back in April, Tori was accused of faking a hospital stay for the sake of her Lifetime series. Even so, we’re gonna give her the benefit of the doubt and assume that this time around she’s legitimately ill. 

In any event, we sincerely hope she’s not pretending, because faking a viral infection at a time when millions of Americans are terrified of an epidemic would be a new low that we never thought Tori capable of.

Tori and Dean share a touching moment. So much to say about these two.

Taylor Swift Lashes Out Against "Sexist" Critics

Though she hasn’t yet confirmed it publicly, it’s pretty clear that Taylor Swift’s “Out of the Woods” is about Harry Styles.

Recently, Taylor spoke about her breakup with Harry during an exclusive listening party with a group of fans, and Swfity diehards have parsed the lyrics and found numerous clues that the singer had Styles on the mind when she wrote the song.

Taylor Swift: Hot in NYC


Taylor looked better than ever as she stepped out in Manhattan today. NYC seems to agree with her!

Obviously, there’s nothing new or unusual about Taylor writing about ex-boyfriends and broken hearts. After all, intimate breakup ballads have been her bread and butter ever since her first single hit the airwaves back in 2006.

Yes, Taylor has used her love life as inspiration throughout her career and it’s a practice that’s often made her the butt of jokes. This time around, however, Swift isn’t taking the criticism lying down.

Last week, British pop star and television personality Olly Murs, offered the following take on Taylor’s latest single:

“Come on, let it go. Write something new that isn’t about Harry. Bless him, it’s been like two years and he’s still getting lashed out, isn’t he?”

Today, Taylor shot back with a biting takedown of Murs’ critique:

“I think frankly that’s a very sexist angle to take. No one says that about Ed Sheeran. No one says that about Bruno Mars. They’re writing songs about their exes, their current girlfriends, their love life and no one raises a red flag there.”

Murs says he’s reached out to Swift and apologized and there’s no bad blood between them.

Looks like the days of the shrinking violet Taylor are over. Anyone who saw Swift’s reaction to John Cleese dissing her cat knows that this is not a girl to be messed with.

She's Never Been in Love!


Yes, the woman who’s as famous for her dating life as for her music says that when she looks back on her relationships, she realizes none of them were “real love.”

Khloe Kardashian Just Wants "Some Head," Rocks Hilarious Shirt on Instagram

Khloe Kardashian has been so unlucky in love the past couple years that you might start to think that she’s a demanding, high-maintenance girlfriend. Judging from her latest selfie, however, Khloe’s relationship goals are pretty simple. 

Khloe Kardashian Wants Head

Yes in the midst of all the relationship drama and questions about who Khloe’s real father is, the reality star is keeping it simple. She just wants some head in a comfortable bed. Is that too much to ask?

Obviously, this is a very different side of Khloe than the one we saw last week on Instagram. But while photos of Khloe playing with North West may have gotten more likes, we feel like this pic is a better representation of KK’s personality.

The shirt is a reference to Drake’s song “The Language,” but we get the feeling those words are also something of a personal motto for Khloe.

As is usually the case these days, she’s at the gym in this pic. We’re not sure how often she actually works out, but it seems like Khloe goes to the gym to pose for pics at least three to five times a week.

And they’re not always selfies! Sometimes Khloe has someone take pictures of her butt while she works out, which is really a service more gyms should offer, when you think about it. 

Personal trainers are great and all, but there’s no better motivation than taking a look at the view that everyone else sees from behind.

Ben Affleck Buff Dad Takes His Little Ladies Shopping

Exclusive... Ben Affleck Takes His Daughters ShoppingI wonder if Ben Affleck has more filming to do for ‘Batman v Superman’? I thought they wrapped, but maybe not. Regardless, it’s clear he’s staying buff, like he had to be for the role- LOL. Here he is taking his daughters, Violet and Seraphina, shopping. RELATED: What did Ben Affleck refuse to do for ‘Gone Girl’?

Warner Bros announced their movie slate for the next few years. In addition to ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,’ they’re doing two ‘Justice League’ movies. It’s an answer to Marvel’s incredibly successful ‘Avengers’ series, and Ben is set to reprise his Batman role for at least ‘Justice League: Part 1,’ which is scheduled to hit theaters in 2017. That would explain why Ben is staying in shape despite wrapping ‘Batman v Superman.’

Rumor even has it Ben may be in talks to direct the first ‘Justice League’ movie. This is going to be an interesting situation. ‘Justice League: Part 2′ is due out in 2019. By then Ben will be 47 years old, although the movie may be shot much earlier than that (like in 2015). The days when superheroes had to be guys in their 20’s is clearly OVER.  It makes sense: look at how well Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger are still doing as action heroes, and they’re in their 60’s!

I’m sure the ‘Justice League’ movies will be great, but I’ll tell you the one I can’t WAIT to see: Wonder Woman.

Madison Louch Blackmailed Over Nude iCloud Photos, Jamie Munoz Arrested in Sting!

Madison Louch, a young, smoking hot South African model, was recently contacted by a blackmailer over hacked nude photos stolen from her iCloud.

The message: Pay up or the naked pics go public!

Her response: Call the cops and flip the script!

  • Madison Louch Bikini Photo
  • Madison Louch Pic

Madison Louch was locked out of her Cloud back on September 7 before she got a call from some guy who bragged that he had just hacked her account.

He told her he is “notorious” for hacking into the accounts of stars and posting hacked nude celebrity photos online, then he made his demand:

Pay $900 or he’d “ruin her modeling career.” 

Yes, a relatively modest $900 was all he asked for … placed in a brown Trader Joe’s bag in a planter located at a building on Fairfax Ave. in Hollywood, Calif.

Louch called the LAPD, who put the money there and then kept undercover eyes on the bag, swarming the woman who came to pick up the package.

Jamie Munoz said she was merely a pawn, picking up the money for someone who was threatening to post nude photos, but not personally involved.

Nicholas Douglas from Vancouver, she said, was the person behind the extortion plot. Police are still investigating that lead, but Munoz was still arrested.

She ended up pleading guilty to attempted extortion and got three years probation and community service. Douglas, if that’s his real name, is still at large.

Mara Teigen


Mara is a California-based model (of course). She’s not related to Chrissy Teigen, so it would be totally kosher for them to make out.

While Kate Upton and Jennifer Lawrence nude photos got most of the attention from The Fappening, countless other stars and models were hacked.

Just when you think the scandal is dead, more photos leak.

As we saw with Joy Corrigan and countless other models, there’s really no need to extort anyone when you can simply gaze at their public profiles.

Seriously. Instagram is the best thing ever.

Shonda Rhimes Slams Critic of “Gay Scenes,” Wonders: Why Is There So Much Hate?

Shonda Rhimes typically saves the drama for Thursday nights on ABC.

The the executive producer of Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder couldn’t help but go off on a Twitter follower yesterday after he wrote the following:

“The gay scenes in Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder are too much. There is no point and they add nothing to the plot.”

HTGAWM Gay Sex Scene

Peeved over why this user singled out those scenes and referenced them as such, Rhimes shot back in a series of Tweets.

“There are no GAY scenes. There are scenes with people in them,” she wrote.

“If you are suddenly discovering that Shondaland shows have scenes involving people who are gay, you are LATE TO THE PARTY. If u use the phrase “gay scenes”, u are not only LATE to the party but also NOT INVITED to the party. Bye Felicia. #oneLOVE.”

Rhimes then took a break, but returned later on last night to explain herself in further detail.

Ok, tweeps. Someone got me all riled up and fighting 4 my friends and their love and the equality of all—I am supposed to be WRITING. So, I know you lovelies are asking me questions but I have to go. And finish making script notes. So you have more #GreysAnatomy to watch. I love all you Tweeples. Even the ones who still need to grow.

And remember that at some point, someone discriminated against you too. I don’t know why this kind of hate is out there. Ugh. #onelove. At least in Shondaland. Have a great rest of your weekend!

Rhimes is an executive producer on How to Get Away With Murder.

The series – which airs at 10/9c on Thursday evenings and which stars Oscar nominee Viola Davis – aired a racy sex scene between Connor, one of Annalise Keating’s law students, and another man last week.

You can watch How to Get Away with Murder online to relive it now and see what all the fuss is about:

Lynda Bellingham Dies; English Actress Was 66

Lynda Bellingham, a beloved English actress best known for roles in Loose Women and All Creatures Great And Small, has died at the age of 66.

She was first diagnosed with colon cancer in July 2013, after which the disease spread to her lungs and liver. She eventually succumbed to the disease.

In August 2014, Lynda decided to cease treatment for her cancer in order to “limit the suffering her family would have to endure,” according to reports.

Lynda Bellingham

In a statement, Lynda’s agent Sue Latimer confirmed her passing, saying, “Lynda died peacefully in her husband’s arms yesterday at a London hospital.

“Her family would like to thank the nurses and staff for their tremendous care and support. Actor, writer and presenter … to the end Lynda was a consummate professional.”

In 1948, Lynda was given up for adoption when she was just four months old after her mother’s strict, religious family disapproved of her being born out of wedlock.

Adopted from Canada by Donald and Ruth Bellingham from Buckinghamshire, UK, Lynda made her acting debut in the 1970s in the UK soap General Hospital.

Along with Loose Women, another prominent role of Lynda’s included her part as The Inquisitor in the 1986 Doctor Who serial The Trial Of A Time Lord.

She also made a notable reality show appearance, starring in Strictly Come Dancing (the original Dancing With The Stars) in its seventh season.

Lynda is survived by her husband, Michael Pattermore, and two children.

War Machine Suicide Note Blames Christy Mack Infidelity, Betrayal

War Machine’s suicide note, discovered after the MMA fighter tried to take his own life last week, appears to lay the blame at the feet of his ex Christy Mack.

  • War Machine Mug Shot
  • Christy Mack Recovered

The former Jonathan Paul Koppenhaver, War Machine attempted suicide inside a Las Vegas jail cell last week, but a corrections officer foiled his plan.

In a letter to a friend sent the day before his suicide bid, the shockingly delusional Koppenhaver talks about how he and Mack broke up and got back together.

“Something seemed different about you,” he recalls saying of his porn star ex, with no mention of the fact that he beat Christy Mack within an inch of her life.

He tries to justify the beating, saying he was stunned to discover her infidelity and betrayal. He writes of how crushed he felt after this alleged revelation:

“Finding what I found that night was devastating, more than you will ever know … not just the unfaithfulness, but the way u cared for him and protected him.”

War Machine says in the note that if he had it to do over again, he’d let Christy’s new boyfriend Corey Thomas beat him up (he pounded him senseless too).

He believes that she would have stopped him and kicked him out instead.

Whatever, man. He then ends his note on an incredibly self-pitying one:

“I still don’t understand how I got into this mess. I don’t know why this had to happen. My life was going so well … I forgive you, please forgive me.”

Oh yes, he forgives her. A pretty audacious claim, considering that War Machine faces 32 charges, including attempted murder, for what he did to her …
