Amanda Bynes Gets 'Lifestyle Makeover'S

Amanda Bynes spent a week at a fitness camp, where she paid several thousand dollars to lose five pounds. E! reports that Bynes was dropped off at camp by her parents and used the week there to give herself "a lifestyle makeover." It may be easy to snark on the fact that the article focuses mostly Bynes' quest to lose that pesky five pounds (especially since Bynes has admitted to disordered eating in the past) and not on her mental health struggles, but it's also important to note that getting into a routine may be an important benefit for Bynes' mental health. And if she can get that down while eating egg-white omelets and playing racquetball, who are we to hate? Get it, girl! [E!]

Thora Birch is back, but she never really left? She's just been starring in a lot of art films? Birch gave a fascinating interview to the Guardian in which she talked about her career trajectory, her identity, and her feelings about Scarlett Johannson. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be any mention of Hocus Pocus, which is arguably Birch's best work. Actually, it's the best work of everyone who was in that movie, even Bette Midler, who gave me so many nightmares that my parents had to calm my fears by renting Beaches. (Her second best movie.)

Khloe Kardashian has sold her house and TMZ reports that it is now new owner Kaley Cuoco's problem because the house is cursed. Yes, TMZ, the reason Khloe and Lamar got a divorce is because their house is cursed, not because they got married too quickly while being under constant media scrutiny. I am glad to see everyone's deductive reasoning skills are still intact! (I also want to point out that the house is referred to as a "divorce house" as if it were bought for the sole purpose of getting a divorce in and nothing else.) [TMZ]


  • Judy Greer is starring in a new pilot on FX. Television, this is your last chance! [Vulture]
  • Apollo Nida (best known for being the real house husband of Phaedra Parks and this) has allegedly been charged with bank fraud, identity theft, and forgery. I hate to say it, but this is going to be a good reunion special. [ONTD]
  • The Rock bought his housekeeper a new car. In related news, my crush on The Rock has grown to an awkward and uncomfortable size. [TMZ]
  • Zac Efron got a big kiss from a tiny puppy. My bunny won't even look at me. [PerezHilton]
  • Shannon Elizabeth may be dating Russell Simmons. [Dlisted]
  • Justin Bieber is tweeting again. In all-caps. Is this a thing he does or is he making up for lost time? I would check, but I don't know if I am emotionally ready to go on his twitter. Or mine for that matter. Actually, Twitter just scares me. There, I said it. [Us]
  • Kyle and Kim Richards may be replaced by a sex doctor on the next season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Brandi is staying put because she is "the lifeblood" of the show and not because she will fight with anyone at any time about anything. [RealityTea]
  • Scarlett Johannson has released a statement defending her choice to work with SodaStream. While her intentions are good, she forgot to mention that anyone who has purchased the Diet Ginger Ale flavor is owed a full refund because that shit tastes nothing like ginger ale. [Forward]
  • Grey's Anatomy is getting a 12th season. And hopefully a visit from whatever governing body oversees hospital efficiency because WAYYYYY too many people die at Seattle Grace. Take your chances at County, people! [Vulture]
  • Gwen Stefani is pregnant and getting acupuncture. And there are over 25 pictures of her walking down the street to prove it. The upside is that Stefani is covered if she is ever questioned about this day in court! [JustJared]
  • Michelle Obama will be featured in Subway ads to promote healthy eating. This seems like a good time to ask whether anyone else is perturbed by the fact that all Subways smell the same, no matter where you are. [Inquisitr]
  • Snoop Dogg was chilling in his hotel room in Australia when his smoke alarm mysteriously went off. Firemen quickly arrived on the scene, but are still unsure why the alarm went off in the first place. Probably just MARIJUANA faulty wiring.[TMZ]
  • Gwyneth Paltrow wants you to take vitamins because she takes them. Gwyneth Paltrow is going to have to learn that she can't always get what she wants. ::knocks over bottle of vitamins and walks away:: [Telegraph]
  • Tegan and Sara are now doing Oreo commercials. Gaze upon the indie artists of yore! Listen to their fucking catchy-as-hell jingle. Oh my god, I am going to listen to it again. [Flavorwire]
