Amanda Bynes gave a statement to Us Weeklyon Thursday, stating: “I’m suing In Touch for printing a fake story. I’m not ‘troubled.’ I don’t get naked in public. I’m 26, a multi-millionaire, retired. Please respect my privacy.” Bitch, respect your own privacy. And multi-millionaire? Come on, now.
The story in question documented the first alleged sighting of the actress, as she has generally been lying low recently, after weeks of reports of her manic behavior and perpetual game of bumper cars that no one else seemed to be in on.
In Touch reported that Bynes had been “walking around at Beach Bump tanning salon in New York completely naked.” Their source alleged that she “didn’t seem to care that everyone saw her naked. She seemed totally out of it… There was definitely something wrong with her.”
My extensive coverage of the Amanda Bynes breakdown here at Dipped In Creamhas not only allowed me to verbally express my completely unadulterated love and fascination with Hollywood trainwrecks, but it has also turned my twitter into a virtual playground of sheer hilarity and opinions on the situation.
The majority of my followers already know how much of a Lindsay Lohan stan I am and always have been, so my interactions blew up a few weeks ago when Lohan shaded Amanda Bynes hard as hell with the tweet: “Why did I get put in jail and a nickelodeon star has had NO punishment(s) so far?”
Gold. Just pure gold. Naturally, I came to mind again today when RadarOnline reported that they’ve been told by “sources” that Bynes is doing everything in her power to steer clear of Lohan now that both of them are in New York City.
This alleged ‘insider’ tells the website that Bynes was “considering staying at the Dream Hotel, but nixed the idea after learning that Lohan has been hanging out there.”
Oh, the Dream Hotel, where Lindsay had her own hit-and-run episode just a few weeks ago? Although the incident turned out to be grossly exaggerated, the irony still managed to tickle me pink.
It seems to me as if these two delightful girls have a blatant conflict of interest and more in common than any of us ever realized. While they are both wasting time shading one other, they’re missing out on an obvious money-making opportunity here.
Why is Amanda Bynes relocating to NYC to try and start a clothing line that is inevitably just going to crash into the ground (Am I the only one who remembers Dear by Amanda Bynes for Steve & Barry’s in 2007? Okay, probably), when these two could team up and take over the world? Do an interview. Show up to events with smeared eyeliner. Fight crime!
I’m getting myself worked up.
RadarOnline also reports that Amanda has been calling ahead to assorted restaurants and stores just to ensure that she won’t ultimately end up running into Lindsay and giving ammo to the paparazzi in such a situation.
While I do agree that the paps (and I, let’s be real) would go crazy over just the idea of catching these two engaging in an awkward run-in, calling ahead to everywhere you go just seems a bit excessive and thirsty. Don’t you have someone on your team that could do that shit for you?
You didn’t think Lohan was going to let Amanda Bynes get all the publicity, did you?
Early this morning, Lindsay Lohan was arrested and charged with leaving the scene of an accident after hitting a man while parking her Porsche Cayenne outside of Dream Hotel in downtown NYC.
This comes exactly 2 days after she tweeted,
“Why did I get put in jail and a nickelodeon star has had no punishment(s) so far?”
Well timed, Linds. This tweet has since been deleted. Another good move.
While surveillance footage of the actual incident shows that the “victim” was exaggerating the story immensely, this is still completely hilarious. In my day, stupid outbursts and sleeping around would get you all the attention you needed. Apparently these days, you need to hit people with your car.
Despite that ALLEGEDLY there was no alcohol involved and she cooperated with authorities, the arrest is more than likely to be a violation of the probation that Lohan is already on, and will no doubt have dire consequences for her when she returns to Los Angeles.
I wonder what Amanda Bynes has to say about this.
Buckle up, everyone. Because this is only going to get more entertaining. And I guess it wouldn’t hurt to look both ways before crossing the street, as well…
