According to TMZ, sources close to Lamar Odom have stated that the drug-addicted NBA player wants to sober up — just not in rehab. Khloe Kardashian’s other half reportedly believes in “self healing” and would consider professional help in private. However he (surprisingly) has not yet taken that step. Sources also added that the reason for his desire to clean up is not for his wife but for his NBA career. What a keeper.
Amanda Bynes’ mother has spoken out for the first time. Lynn Bynes stated that her and her husband’s main concern is for their daughter to get better and that she “will get through this situation.” Bynes’ mom also emphasized that most of the things written about her daughter are false or misleading, and all reports should be taken “with a grain of salt.” She also stated that they “appreciate everyone’s heartfelt support.” Amanda Bynes was recently transferred to a Malibu facility where she will remain for some time.
Kristen Bell is one star who seems to have it together. The beautiful (and hilarious) actress spoke to E! News about her work and her attitude about losing baby weight while promoting a campaign for water conservation. Bell stated: “I made a commitment to not allow my narrative for the year after having a baby to be about my weight... I have a baby. Do you know how awesome that is?” (We definitely think she’s awesome). As for exercise the Veronica Mars star commented: “It’s not like I jog for two hours, if I hit 20 minutes I will celebrate.” Hmm sounds oddly familiar.
Samuel L. Jackson has revealed that Elizabeth Olsen will play The Scarlet Witch in the upcoming Joss Whedon Avengers sequel. The star made the announcement while discussing his role in an upcoming episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. While Marvel itself has yet to confirm the casting news, we think Samuel L. is pretty trustworthy.
