We wrote yesterday that Amanda Bynes is now out of rehab and looking to attend college for fashion design. We have since learned that she is now enrolled at Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, which has campuses all over California including San Francisco, Orange County,Los Angeles and San Diego
Using an alias, she will have an escort with her at all times to take her two FIDM classes at their Orange County Campus.
She is no stranger to the fashion world either. Back in 2007 she designed her own line of clothes for Steve & Barry's called Dear, by Amanda Bynes.
Gal Gadot has been cast as Wonder Woman in the upcoming Warner Bros. Man of Steel sequel. The film, titled Batman vs. Superman, will also star Ben Affleck in his Batman debut and Henry Cavill reprising his role as Superman.
Director Zack Snyder said in a statement, “Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe. Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role. We look forward to audiences discovering Gal in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character.”
When a world leader and advocate of peace passes away, the world obviously awaits with bated breath to see what Paris Hilton has to say on the matter. "RIP Nelson Mandela. Your 'I Have a Dream' speech was so inspiring. An amazing man," she "tweeted" after she learned of the passing of Nelson Mandela.
Clearly, Paris had confused the former South African president with the already dead, African-American civil rights leader, Martin Luther King Jr. and the tweet dominated internet headlines. However, Paris turned the tables on her critics when it was revealed the tweet was fake.
Whoever made that stupid fake tweet lacks respect to the loss the world is mourning right now. Same goes for all the blogs who ran with it.— Paris Hilton (@ParisHilton) December 5, 2013
Inside Llewyn Davis, the latest installment in the Coen Brother's canon, depicts a time and place that not even the most hardcore Dylan fans will recognize. Stripped of its nostaglia and mystique, Greenwich Village is an entirely different character, filled with cramped, cheap apartments, cluttered coffeehouses, and the litter of broken dreams. Most music biopics tell a fast and loose story a young man crooning tunes in the studio and then belting them out in front of screaming fans before succumbing to heroin. Llewyn Davis takes a different approach, using a minimalist style to convey the stark realities of the starving artist.
The President of South Africa Joseph Zuma released a statement earlier today confirming the rumors that Nelson Mandela, peace activist and the first black president of South Africa, has passed away. He was 95 years old.
World leaders, politicians, and other prominent people have expressed their admiration and condolences at the passing at one of the most influential figures of peaceful resistance in the 20th Century. Said British Prime Minister David Cameron via Twitter: "A great light has gone out in the world. Nelson Mandela was a hero of our time. I've asked for the flag at [Number] 10 [Downing] to be flown at half mast."
Actress Amanda Bynes has completed inpatient treatment and is back living with her parents. She was first hospitalized in July and put on a 5150 psychiatric hold after starting a fire in a driveway and was then moved to a rehab facility for treatment.
Her family’s lawyer Tamar Arminak stated to People Magazine, “Amanda and her entire family would like to thank everyone who's contacted them with good thoughts and wishes for Amanda's recovery” and that "Amanda has completed her inpatient rehabilitation and she's feeling better every day."
Beyonce is known for always giving fans a good show. Even without an album attached to it, she has been able to sell out her current Mrs. Carter world tour because fans know they're in for a good time. However, there was not a dry eye in LA's Staples Center on Tuesday when the singer dedicated two songs to the actor, Paul Walker.
"I dedicate these songs to Paul Walker," she said to the audience before singing her rendition of "I Will Always Love You." She then performed the equally touching song, "Halo."
You couldn't help but to be moved.Celebrities like Zoe Saldana, and Julianne Hough gathered at Hyde Lounge for a VIP viewing party. Sources say "you could hear a pin drop" in the lounge when Beyonce sang the tribute to Paul.

There was a time in history when female punk bands ruled the world. Angsty rebel yells from women in bands like Bikini Kill, Hole, and Siouxsie and the Banshees were punk music’s secret weapon- tackling topics on sexuality, feminism, radicalism, etc.
The woman who led Le Tigre (and used to thrash about on stage in her undies), and now The Julie Ruin hopes to demonstrate just how she became known as the quintessential 90s third-wave representation of alt-feminism in Sini Anderson’s The Punk Singer: A Film About Kathleen Hanna.
The world was shocked and saddened when the news about Paul Walker's tragic death broke this past Saturday, November 30. Today, December 3, the L.A County Coroner's office released the cause of death in the fatal car crash, stating that the late actor, 40, who was in the passenger's seat of the car, died as a result of the combination of traumatic and thermal injuries, while the driver, Roger Rodas, died of numerous traumatic injuries.
What this tells us is that the impact of the crash alone is not what killed Walker, but rather, the mix of various horrors that took place is what ended the actor's short life.
