And the judge overseeing Lynn's conservator duties in Oxnard credited her for Amanda's amazing progress in court on Tuesday, according to TMZ.com, saying, "Good job, Mrs. Bynes. Well done."

A source recently revealed that Amanda's parents are thrilled that her life is more stable but don't think she is ready to move out of their home just yet, even though she is eager to get her own place.

Mariah Carey and Nick CannonNick Cannon "wasn't concerned" Nicki Minaj would be a threat to his wife Mariah Carey's safety after their American Idol argument.

The two went head-to-head on the judging panel of the show last week, with Nicki at one point threatening to shoot the "Hero" singer and filming having to be called off, but Nick claims he was not "worried" about what was said and believes it made "good news" for the series.

"I wasn't concerned. That's exactly what you called it - drama. With drama, it's theatrics. I'm not worried about that stuff. I wasn't there. It made for good news. It sounded good, right? Good job, Fox!" he told E! News.

Mariah was supposedly so nervous about what Nicki said - at one point calling for her head to be cut off - she beefed up her security detail. However, a friend of Mariah's said she would not let the "Starships" hitmaker ruin her time on American Idol because she has dealt with "far worse" in her long career: "She's not going to let this faze her now - the outbursts won't faze her. She'll handle [it] with poise and grace. Mariah has dealt with far worse in her career."

Lindsay Lohan’s Probation Won’t Be Affected by Accident Claim

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Legal Issues,

Lindsay LohanLindsay Lohan's probation will not be affected by a hit-and-run allegation.

The troubled actress is due to make her final court appearance on Thursday, and though she has been accused of hitting club manager Thaer Kamal with her Porsche and leaving the scene, the claim will not count against her.

According to gossip website TMZ, a report submitted by the probation service mentions the incident and the fact that it is under investigation by police, but discounts the claim and gives it no weight as charges have not been filed against Lindsay, nor has she been arrested. "The probationer [Lindsay] is in compliance with the terms and conditions of probation," the report says.

The document also notes that the actress will complete court-ordered counseling sessions today and her final stint of community service tomorrow. Judge Stephanie Sautner has said that she will terminate the probation - which stems from a 2007 driving under the influence conviction - if Lindsay is still in compliance.

Lindsay Lohan Misdiagnosed, Demanding Apology From Courts

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Drugs, Drunk, Legal Issues, Rants, Rumors,

Lindsay LohanDespite being on rehab lock-down, is making quite the fuss, reportedly wanting an apology from the Californian courts.

The actress is said to be “fuming” after medical assessments at the UCLA Medical Center - where she is currently undergoing a 90-day stint as part of her sentence for breaching probation - found she may have been misdiagnosed with attention deficit disorder (ADD) and is not suffering from bipolar disorder or addicted to drugs as was previously claimed.

Instead, medics believe it is possible her prescription for Adderall, which treats ADD, led to her erratic behavior, meaning the 24-year-old star feels her sentence was unfair. “Lindsay is fuming - she is really upset that the courts put her through all this,” said a source.

Although the insider says Lindsay’s representatives are “exploring their options,” it is not expected she will be able to gain legal action against the perceived damage to her public image. Criminal Defence Attorney Steve Cron explained to Fox 411’s Pop Tarts, “No judge or prosecutor could be sued under these circumstances, they have absolute immunity. Judge Revel formulated her opinion of Lindsay based on the information she had at the time from another program. The judge could still be dissatisfied with the report from UCLA and seek independent opinions or insist Lindsay be enrolled in other programs.”

Tila Tequila Credits Herself For Legalization of Gay Marriage

Tila Tequila thinks she lifted the ban on gay marriageAccording to loathsome MTV star/personality Tila Tequila, the people of California have her to thank for lifting the ban on gay marriage in the Golden State.

“It is because of me — I definitely think [my show] has helped the movement,” she claimed in an interview.

Yes, because the politicians, lobbyists, and judges involved in lifting the ban are prone to watching a reality show that is so contemptible that contestants are forced to eat pig vaginas to prove their love to a female who blatantly exploits her “bisexuality.”

“Before it came out, everyone was still a little apprehensive about [same sex relationships]. Then they realized, ‘Wow, everyone is really into this stuff, and it is fine.’ The next thing you know, [gay marriage] is legal,” she later elaborated.

Really, Tila? Really? I thought I heard plenty of asinine remarks from Jessica Alba and Katherine Heigl, but this? I’m not sure whether to laugh or feel very sorry for her.
