Amanda Bynes Wins DUI Battle

The Teen Choice Awards 2009 in Universal City

Amanda Bynes, I have some good news and I have some bad news.

The good: she won’t be prosecuted for DUI.  The L.A. City Attorney has decided not to prosecute Bynes for her September 2014 DUI bust where she was driving under the influence of Adderall. BUT, the bad news: she could still go to jail.  Frowny face.

TMZ reports that the City Attorney doesn’t think he can sell the case to a jury because she had a relatively low level of the drug in her bloodstream, but he’s referred the matter to the D.A., because driving with ANY Adderall in her system could constitute a probation violation (from that pesky DUI back in 2012).

The D.A. could try to revoke her probation, sending Bynes to jail. But in actuality, TMZ says, it’s unlikely the D.A. will send her anywhere that jeopardizes her mental health treatment.

So Amanda, keep getting better and you won’t have to go to jail. Not a bad deal, right?

Amanda Bynes is Sober Again


Remember her? Apparently, she’s back!

According to TMZ, and to the great joy of her family, Amanda Bynes is OUT of her manic state and acting completely “normal.” She’s off all meds and acting completely lucid- having normal conversations and interactions. According to TMZ:

We’re told things have stabilized so much, her parents have given her limited access again to bank accounts. She spends her time reading, doing yoga, meditation and pilates … all stress reducers which doctors say are important for these mental disorders.

We’re also told Amanda’s recent trip to USC — where she’d like to enroll as a psych major — was all planned by her.

The problem is…people with similar mental illnesses sometimes rebound and they can be okay for a while, only to relapse. Let’s hope she keeps this healthy streak. Cheers to a sober Amanda Bynes in 2015!

Avril Lavigne Slams Rehab Rumors

Avril Lavigne 30th Birthday At The Bank Nighclub
For the record, Avril Lavigne is NOT amused by all the rehab rumors.
In fact, she wanted to set the record straight and did so, via her twitter Tuesday evening.

“The rehab RUMORS are hilarious! The only thing I’m addicted to right now is Bing Crosby.”

She added, “MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! And to all a goodnight!”

(via E news)

Rumors of health problems first spread when a fan account tweeted messages that included “#PrayForAvril” and “#GetWellSoonAvril”.  Lavigne later cryptically responded with “thank you.” Not helping your case, girl.

Still, she seems okay now because Avril just released a holiday card on her Twitter account that featured her own healthy mug plus some fellow musicians. Check out the card here, and weigh in if you think she’s sick or the rumors are totally bunk.

Amanda Bynes Wants to go to USC for Psychology?

Amanda Bynes Dances Around Strangely In Store Surveillance Video

Yes, THIS Amanda Bynes.

Apparently, Amanda has her sights on enlisting in USC’s School of Psychology, as she took a VIP tour of the campus Wednesday to check out the scene.

In one way, it make total sense: Amanda has LOTS of personal experience  in the realm of psychiatric care. And her antics won’t especially hurt her cause: a staffer from the admissions department told TMZ that the school does not hold mental illness against any applicant.

As for her tour? It seems..questionable. Several students saw her on the golf cart tooling around campus with headphones, singing “Roar” by Katy Perry. Doesn’t really sound very “academic,” to me, but hey, maybe that’s how Trojans do things!
