Brace Yourselves For Amanda Bynes' Comeback — Because She's Officially Off Probation!

| Filed under: Fashion SmashionLegal MattersAmanda BynesMental Health

amanda bynes off probation

Good news for Amanda Bynes!

On Monday, it was revealed that the former Nickelodeon child star is officially off of probation!

In case you forgot, the All That alum was initially placed on probation after she was arrested in 2014 for driving under the influence of Adderall. And while the stimulant was prescribed by a doctor, the industry vet took it right before she got behind the wheel — which caused her to fail several sobriety tests.

Eek.

At the time, Amanda was struggling with her mental health as well as smoking marijuana recreationally. Doesn't seem like the best combo to us. Just sayin'…

Nonetheless, that's all in the past for Miz Bynes as her lawyer told TMZ that her case had concluded back on Friday. YAYYYYY!

In fact, things seem to be going very well for the 30-year-old as she's currently in school at the Fashion Institute Of Design and Merchandising. It's said Amanda plans to debut her fashion line sometime later this year.

It sounds like the once controversial celeb is bracing herself for quite the comeback! Oh, we hope so.

Jackie Warner — who you may remember from Bravo's Work Out — was arrested on Friday for felony assault with a deadly weapon after a bizarre incident which involved her reportedly "sleep driving"! OMG!

So here's what happened.

TMZ reports the 48-year-old had one martini while out to lunch earlier in the day (to which she Uber-ed to and from) before she went home, took an Ambien, and went to sleep.

The next thing the fitness expert knows, she's in the hospital.

According to reports, Miz Warner was "sleep driving" (while only wearing underwear) when she crashed her car into a pole in West Hollywood. Once cops arrived to the scene, it's said she backed her vehicle into a cop car, nearly hitting one of the deputies!

She was understandably arrested with a $60K bail. Law enforcement sources say she blew right around the legal limit of .08 during a breathalyzer test.

Hmmm.

We'll keep you updated as we learn more about this crazzzy case!

Wow!!!

Meryl Streep and Karl Lagerfeld have both released new statements in regard to their "feud" — or misunderstanding — regarding whether she would be paid to wear the designer's gown at the Oscars tonight.

In case you forgot, the feud grew this week when Lagerfeld accused Streep of "cheapness" in a report that she eventually chose a gown from another designer so that she could be paid to wear it.

Now, after a few days of simmering feud feelings after Lagerfeld's "cheapness" comment made Streep look, well, not great, both parties have released new statements updating their positions in the affair.

To Lagerfeld's credit, he apologized a bit in his statement, acknowledging he may have misunderstood Streep's motivations, saying in full:

White House Blocks CNN & Other News Organizations From Press Briefing — WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK!

| Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikDonald TrumpControversy

We wish this was #FAKENEWS… but it isn't.

On Friday, CNN, The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Politico and BuzzFeed among other news outlets, were blocked from attending an off-camera press briefing at the White House. Press secretary (and Melissa McCarthy muse) Sean Spicer hosted a gaggle, which is less formal than the usual televised Q/A session we've been seeing.

This is unbelievably fucked up!! Especially since Donald Trump just spoke out at CPAC about how much he loves the FIRST AMENDMENT — which includes freedom of the damn press. Sounds like a direct infringement, Donny!

In response to backlash, administration spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said the White House "had the pool there so everyone would be represented and get an update from us today."

This "pool" includes a representative from one television network and one print outlet — NBC, ABC, CBS and Fox News were there, only to leave CNN in the dust. And to no surprise, conservative Breitbart News, The Washington Times and One America News Network were allowed in.

THIS IS HOW DICTATORSHIPS START!!!

CNN immediately (and rightfully) protested the decision saying:
