A WEEKEND OF SELFIES AND OUTLANDISH TWEETS FROM AMANDA BYNES
While most of New York City spent the weekend enjoying the Spring weather, recent NYC transplant Amanda Bynes continued her Twitter quest to take her best selfies and call out all of the news outlets who write about her. On Friday (April 26th,) the 27-year-old went after Complex for writing about how she has been making empty threats and having a breakdown on the social network.
Although Amanda's anti-media rants are nothing new, this time she resorted to calling the writers ugly before suggesting that they know nothing about her life because they aren't multi-millionaires like she is. She wrote:
@complexmag you're ugly writers, I don't want to be in your lame ass magazine thanks! So stop writing about me! I... twitpl.us/t/jOT- Amanda Bynes (@AmandaBynes) April 26, 2013
The next day (April 27th) Amanda seemed to move on from her frustrations by uploading a video showing off her new look. The Hairspray star shaved off the left side of her hair while leaving right side long and blonde. Back to top
ONLY TWO MEN RETURNING FULL TIME TO 'TWO AND A HALF MEN'
CBS announced via Twitter on Friday that they have renewed Two and a Half Men for an eleventh season with one big change. Angus T. Jones has been demoted to a recurring role.
Although Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer are reportedly getting $700,000 per episode to stay on, 24-year-old Jones will be part of the show in a much lesser capacity. Sources tell Us Weekly that the network really wanted to keep Angus on but he is reportedly pretty done with the show and wants to focus on music now.
There is no word on whether Angus' very public denouncement of the show back in November of 2012 played a part in the demotion. Back to top
ASHTON KUTCHER FIGHTS AT MUSIC FESTIVAL
Ashton Kutcher's trip to the Stagecoach country music festival was cut short when he got into a scuffle with a security guard on Saturday (April 27th.) According to TMZ, the incident occurred when the jOBS actor went to greet a fan while checking out sets by Nick 13 and Dwight Yoakam.
Sources tell the website that as the female fan approached to shake Ashton's hand, a security guard intervened and began shoving both of them. Kutcher allegedly did not respond well to the situation and they began shoving each other violently until Ashton's friends had to restrain him. The guard reportedly demanded that Ashton be removed from the festival but he left on his own.
Witnesses say the security guard was completely at fault for instigating the fight. Back to top
