Amanda Bynes can finally put one of the messier parts of her incredibly messy and sad 2014 behind her. In 2014, Amanda was arrested for DUI and now TMZ says that she’s finally off probation. Amanda got arrested in September 2014 in Los Angeles for driving while high on Adderall, something she had a legal prescription for. Amanda was already on probation at the time. Her DUI didn’t end with time in a jail cell; instead, it ended with her checking into a mental health facility.
Almost two and a half years later, Amanda’s lawyer tells TMZ that her DUI case ended last Friday and she’s officially done being on probation.
She’s been laying pretty low these past couple of years. Sources tell TMZ she’s still attending classes at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, and is planning to debut a clothing line later this year. Of course, there’s also the small issue of Amanda Bynes fighting with someone on Twitter who claims to be a person named Ashley Banks (who sounds like Amanda Bynes and seems to have access to all her pictures). It sounds like she’s got a lot going on. Hopefully she doesn’t try to do any of those things while she’s driving. It might be smart of her to hire a driver, just to make sure she doesn’t have any more DUI whoopsies. I’m sure one of the dancing lobsters could use the extra work.
Over the weekend, we learned that Nicki Minaj had probably locked herself in a walk-in freezer to treat the BURN she was given by rapper and Love & Hip Hop: New York star Remy Ma. It all started after Remy felt that she was done dirty by Nicki in a verse from the song Make Love. Remy fired back with ShETHER, a 7 minute diss track. Nicki responded a couple times on Instagram, the gist of which was mostly just Nicki bragging about how her friends are more famous and how Remy Ma’s record sales are bad. They’re not done hissing at each other and now Lil’ Kim is involved.
Nicki slapped back at Remy Ma yesterday by Instagramming (then deleting) a screen shot of the chart position and sales numbers of Remy Ma and Fat Joe’s “disappointing” track Plato O Plomo. That one might not have done so well, but Remy would like Nicki to know that ShETHER, on the other hand, is doing really well. ShETHER was one spot higher than Nicki and Gucci Mayne’s Make Love. Not that Remy cares, of course.

Not long after, she made sure to update ShETHER’s chart progress again after it climbed a little higher.

So how does Lil’ Kim factor into this mess? It’s no secret that Lil’ Kim hates Nicki Minaj, so of course she’s on Team Remy. While performing at a show over the weekend with Remy and Love & Hip Hop: New York cast member Cardi B, Lil’ Kim announced that she’d be interested in working on an updated version of Ladies Night with Remy.
Lil’ Kim picked the wrong outfit to wear while coming for Nicki. That busted Moschino bodysuit is providing enough material for a lifetime of clap-back tracks.
As much as I would die for another Ladies Night Remix, I’m just too afraid of how that might turn out. It’s almost a guaranteed mess. For one thing, if they filmed a video, they’d have to scrap the Florida jet ski scene. Remy Ma has only been out of prison for two years; I’m not sure if she’s allowed to go out into International waters. And I don’t know if Lil’ Kim is supposed to expose her newer parts to salt water.
UPDATE: Lil’ Kim spoke with Billboard recently, and she was asked about her involvement in the Remy vs. Nicki saga. Lil’ Kim says that she has nothing to do with their fight, because she doesn’t care.
“We all know the situation that’s going on with Remy and ol’ girl. That’s their situation and I have nothing to do with that…I’m not even thinking about ol’ girl! I’m so far past that. That’s never on my mind. Ever. Ol’ girl has never been on my mind for a long ass time at all.”
Lil’ Kim goes on to add that if she did work on a Ladies Night thing with Remy, it would only be because they’re friends and not because they want to gang up on “ol’ girl.”
Speaking of music videos shot in Florida, here’s Nicki Minaj on the set of a music video with Future in Miami. Hmmm…a fur coat and a bikini. How very Lil’ Kim of her.

Justin Timberlake opened the Oscars with a high-energy performance of «Can’t Stop the Feeling,» but one of the most memorable parts of his act had to be when he had a mini-reunion with his former Mickey Mouse Club costar, Ryan Gosling. Not only did the two appear in multiple skits together on the ’90s show, but they were briefly roommates when Ryan’s mother had to return to Canada during their stint on the show. While the duo looked quite chatty during a commercial break, things seemed a little tense when Justin shimmied his way past the La La Land actor. So, was Ryan’s resistance to dance along all an act for the cameras, or do the two secretly have some unresolved childhood beef?
Well, the answer is complicated. Even though the two aren’t enemies, they aren’t exactly best pals either. Shortly before their run-in at the show, Justin «nonchalantly» confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that he wasn’t the closest of friends with Ryan anymore. Of course, the Oscars wasn’t their only reunion in recent years. In December 2015, the two made all of our childhood dreams come true when they caught up during a Saturday Night Live afterparty in NYC. While they’re not as tight as they used to be, there still seems to be a lot of respect between the former costars. Still, we can’t help but wonder what a playdate with their little kids would look like. Mickey Mouse Club 2.0?

We already know that the Academy’s accounting firm, PricewaterhouseCoopers, ultimately are the ones to blame for the most entertaining moment of the Oscars, because one of their accountants gave Warren Beatty the Best Actress envelope instead of the Best Picture envelope. But Variety says that at the Vanity Fair party, Faye blamed herself and blurted out, “I really fucked up” And TMZ says that Faye and Warren got into a memaw vs. pepaw battle during rehearsals. They both wanted to read off the winner. Bet if they had to do it again, they’d each fight to not read that mess.
A source told TMZ that Faye and Warren were cold to each other during rehearsals and wouldn’t even block their presentation together. They did it separately. They also got into a little tussle over who was going to do the honor of reading the winner of Best Picture. They both wanted to do it. Warren allegedly backed off and let Faye do it and probably because he knew she was about take a wire hanger to his ass. If you watch the video again, it’s clear that Warren looked down and knew that something in the envelope ain’t clean. He checked to see if another card was in the envelope before handing it over to Faye who just blurted out “La La Land.” TMZ thinks that Faye wanted to beat Warren to the punch.
— Variety (@Variety) February 27, 2017
If we want to keep this oldies battle royale going, we can say that Warren read the card, knew it was wrong and instead of telling someone about it, he thought, “I’ll show Faye what happens when you mess with Dick Tracy.”
PwC spit out another apology yesterday, and it was reported that the accountant responsible for giving Warren and Faye the wrong envelope was Brian Cullinan. Brian is a seasoned accountant, but I guess he gets a case of the fangirls when he’s around Hollywood stars, because he tweeted (and later deleted those tweets) throughout the Oscars. The Best Actress Oscar was given before Best Picture, and Brian tweeted this after Emma Stone won.
Emma Stone’s golden ginger glow must’ve blinded Brian and it caused him to give Warren and Faye the wrong envelope. There were apparently two sets of envelopes. Emma Stone said in the press room that she still had her envelope (pictures of Emma in the press room with the other winners below), so Brian must’ve given Warren and Faye the second one.
Jimmy Kimmel was apparently supposed to close the show with his fake arch rival Matt Damon, but when La La Land got blue balls after finding out that they lost, that bit was trashed. Jimmy explained what happened on his show last night. He basically said what I typed above, but here it is coming out of his mouth.
So after taking in all the facts from this ESCANDALO, I’ve come to the conclusion that Brian the Accountant has a thing for Emma Stone. So if Emma Stone never won Best Actress, then Brian the Accountant wouldn’t have swooned himself into a haze and he may have given Warren the right envelope. So what I’m saying is that this would’ve never happened if the rightful Best Actress winner, Isabelle Huppert, won!
And yesterday, someone e-mailed me to ask what is it with me and Isabelle Huppert. My explanation is really simple. Isabelle Huppert was in Elle, Elle was directed by Paul Verhoeven and Paul Verhoeven directed the greatest movie that ever was: Showgirls! Isabelle is only 2 degrees away from Showgirls. And anybody who has a Showgirls number of 2 or less deserves every award! (P.S. – If you discover that Emma Stone has a Showgirls number of 2 or less, I don’t want to hear it!)
Emma Watson is one of the most private actresses in Hollywood, but in light of her exciting new role in Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast, she sat down with Vanity Fair for an illuminating chat. From touching on the hardships of having a boyfriend in the public eye to the one person she needed approval from before agreeing to play a Disney princess, read on to see everything Emma revealed to the magazine.
- On why she has a strict «no photos» policy with fans: «For me, it’s the difference between being able to have a life and not. If someone takes a photograph of me and posts it, within two seconds they’ve created a marker of exactly where I am within 10 meters. They can see what I’m wearing and who I’m with. I just can’t give that tracking data. I’ll say, ‘I will sit here and answer every single Harry Potter fandom question you have but I just can’t do a picture.’ I have to carefully pick and choose my moment to interact. When am I a celebrity sighting versus when am I going to make someone’s freakin’ week? Children I don’t say no to, for example.»
- On balancing her love life with fame: «I want to be consistent: I can’t talk about my boyfriend in an interview and then expect people not to take paparazzi pictures of me walking around outside my home. You can’t have it both ways . . . I’ve noticed, in Hollywood, who you’re dating gets tied up into your film promotion and becomes part of the performance and the circus. I would hate anyone that I were with to feel like they were in any way part of a show or an act.»
- On why she doesn’t want advice from famous child stars: «People will say to me, ‘Have you spoken to Jodie Foster or Natalie Portman? They would have great advice for you on how to grow up in the limelight.’ I’m not saying it was in any way easy on them, but with social media it’s a whole new world. They’ve both said technology has changed the game.»
- On why she sought out Gloria Steinem’s approval before agreeing to play Belle: «I couldn’t care less if I won an Oscar or not if the movie didn’t say something that I felt was important for people to hear.»
- On transforming Belle into a feminist: «I was like, ‘The first shot of the movie cannot be Belle walking out of this quiet little town carrying a basket with a white napkin in it. We need to rev things up!’ The original sketches had her in her ballet shoes, which are lovely — don’t get me wrong — but she’s not going to be able to do anything terribly useful in ballet shoes in the middle of a French provincial village.»

NATIONAL HARBOR, MD—On Friday, during his speech at CPAC, self-described First Amendment fan Donald Trump railed against the “dishonest media” for what seemed like the 34,299th time. Predictably, the crowd booed loudly at the press, including at the reporters typing away at laptops in the back of the hall. Of course,…
At this point, it’s pretty evident that the Warriors superteam is indestructible. Or maybe I’m just a jaded Clippers fan who expects to be pummeled every time — 10 straight losses will kill anyone’s spirit.
However! I can rest easy knowing my team’s resident celebrity fan isn’t Guy freakin’ Fieri. Look at this guy, just hanging with referee truther Ayesha Curry in Miami over the weekend:

This is where I’m at as a Clippers fan, relishing in the fact that neither CP3 nor Blake frequent Flavortown.
During his first month in office, the United States’ maniac-in-chief has received little pushback on his budding authoritarianism from Republicans in Congress, who have been mostly content to focus on unwinding various regulations and gutting an increasingly popular health care law that has brought the US uninsured…
