- Amanda Bynes Pleads Not Guilty to DUI [CBS News]
She may not have been able to rope in Barack Obama to help her, but troubled former child star Amanda Bynes appears to be handling her DUI case just fine on her own. She pleaded “not guilty” to one count of misdemeanor DUI this week, via a lawyer who entered the plea on her behalf. Barring any other crashes, Byness pre-trial court date will be set for July 18. Let’s just hope she doesn’t drive herself there.
Reality starlet Tila Tequila—who checked herself into rehab in March after what her roommate said were several serious suicide attempts—went MIA this week, missing an important flight to begin a European tour and prompting her manager to sound the alarm. But when police arrived at her house, Tequila was present and conscious enough that police told reporters, “I don’t know why we were called here.”
A working actor named Brian Presley was seated next to a model named Melissa Stetten on a recent flight; she began tweeting blow-by-blow updates of his lame attempts to flirt with her. The twist? All flight long, he was pounding beers, although an article from Christianity Today published this spring quotes Presley as saying he was a year and a half sober. After a follower tweeted Stetten that link, she must have gotten the message, leaving the session with the final tweet: “Did I just ruin Brian Presley's life via twitter?” Yes, Melissa. Yes, you did.
