Amanda Bynes has posted a new photo of herself on Twitter.
And you may need to brace yourself for this one, celebrity gossip followers.
Because the former trainwreck of a mediocre actress is actually looking like … GASP! … not all that much of a trainwreck at the moment.
Indeed, the Internet is in shock right now after Bynes shared the above snapshot on her Twitter page late last week.
Users can’t believe just how normal the star looks while sitting alongside a friend at Girasol Restaurant in Studio City, California.
Along with an emoji of two lipstick-laden lips, the troubled D-Lister included a very simple caption that reads as follows:
“Dinner with friends at Girasol.”
Not particularly revealing, we know, but this is the first picture Bynes has posted in 2018.
We last saw her on social media way back in April of last year when Amanda shared the following image, which appears to also depict her and this same gal pal:
In the latest image, the former Nickelodeon child star is sitting with long blonde hair extensions and a basic black top as she prepares to dine at the eatery.
Looks can be deceiving, of course, but she doesn’t appear to be have recently suffered a mental illness relapse, as had been reported in December.
An actress with a seemingly bright future just a few years ago, Bynes fell hard off the deep end back in 2014.
She was often spotted in public, looking disheveled beyond belief, while she frequently rambled incoherently about things such as killing her dad and leaving his body in a ditch.
She was subsequently diagnosed as Bipolar and was scarcely heard from at all in 2017.
But insiders now tell Us Weekly that Bynes is hoping to make a comeback.
“Amanda is going to be graduating from fashion school this summer,” this source tells the supermarket tabloid, adding:
“She is doing so well and is very excited about the next chapter of her professional life.”
Hey, we’ve made plenty of fun of Bynes over these difficult years, but we’d be thrilled if she really did turn things around.
She hasn’t acted since 2010 and has been nothing but an unfortunate laughingstock among those who follow the entertainment industry ever since.
Following several months of erratic behavior and arrests, Byneswas placed in a treatment facility under an involuntary psychiatric hold in 2014.
She was kicked out of L.A.’s Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising this same year.
However, she returned to this same school in 2015.
Us Weekly writes that Amanda “has been focused on school and does want to return to acting.”
There is allegedly “interest” in her, as well, although it’s unclear from whom and for which medium.
In June of 2017, Bynes went on camera with blogger Diana Madison for the first time since her public meltdown, sounding like someone who had herself together.
“I do miss acting and I have something surprising to tell you: I’m going to start acting again,” she said last summer, concluding:
“I want to do TV. Maybe a few guest spots on some shows that I’m a fan of and maybe another TV show where I’m the star of it.”
If you’ve been watching Vanderpump Rules this season, then you know that Scheana Marie has had one thing and one thing only on her mind.
Scheana’s obsession with Robert Valletta is matched only by his obvious indifference toward her.
Someone should edit all their scenes together to make an instructional video on how to tell when a guy’s just not that into you.
Despite the fact that Scheana recently got divorced and Rob speaks exclusively in inspirational meme-style cliches, she’s absolutely head over heels for him.
Or at least she was at the time the show was filmed.
These days, Scheana and Rob are broken up, and both have been tight-lipped with regards to the exact reasons for their split.
The consensus among fans is that the rumors about Rob cheating on Scheana turned out to be true, and she finally came to her senses and cut him loose.
But if there’s any truth to the latest rumor about Scheana, then Rob might not have been the only one engaging in shady shenanigans.
Summer House is the Bravo snooze-fest that for some reason is categorized as a Vanderpump spin-off.
(You almost have to admire the show’s shamelessness in trying to piggyback on the success of VPR.)
We’ve seen the two casts spend time together, and apparently they’ve been known to hang out off camera, too.
So what does all of this have to do with Scheana and Rob’s relationship?
Well, it seems Summer House Stephen McGee and Carl Radke are no longer friends, and Stephen has decided to burn that bridge by calling out Carl’s affair with Scheana.
“Can I just tell you something? Carl f-cked Scheana,” McGee blurted out during a recent podcast interview.
“Oh my god, I’m so sorry I didn’t mean to say that. I can’t believe I said that,” he added sarcastically.
Asked about the timing, Carl added, “This was in early December.”
Vanderpump fans have been quick to point out that Scheana announced her separation from Rob in early December.
So either there was some overlap there, or Scheana moved on from Rob in a flash.
Hopefully she realized she banged Carl as revenge for months of listening to Rob’s lame-ass bumper sticker slogans.
Watch Vanderpump Rules online to get caught up on what’s already been one hell of a drama-packed season.
It’s only been two weeks since we first learned that Josiah Duggar and Lauren Swanson are courting, but it seems the couple is already moving awfully fast.
Like, so fast his parents are probably about to spray them with a garden hose.
As you probably know, the Duggars follow a strict set of rules when it comes to the process of courting, which they describe as “datint with a purpose.”
That “purpose,” of course, is getting married and siring a small army of fundamentalist children.
As such, all forms of pre-marital hanky-panky are strictly prohibited.
But the Duggars don’t just forbid sexual intercourse.
No, they prohibit unmarried couples from engaging in just about any form of physical contact, including hand-holding and “front-hugging.”
(Courting couples are permitted to engage in brief “side-hugs,” which have been sanctioned by Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, as they don’t involve any chest-to-chest or genital-to-genital contact. Seriously.)
For obvious reasons, the Duggars have had trouble enforcing these rules in the past.
For example, despite the fact that their dates were all chaperoned, Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth admitted to breaking courtship rules in the months leading up to their marriage.
We don’t know if that meant they simply held hands for too long, or dared to front-hug, or … went even further.
Whatever the case, “shotgun wedding” rumors began plaguing the Duggars shortly after Joy-Anna snnounced her pregnancy, and now it looks as though they have another courtship scandal on their hands.
Yes, it seems that just a few days after Josiah and Lauren confirmed their courtship, the couple was spotted violating the strict code of conduct set forth by his parents.
According to Radar Online, Josiah and Lauren have already been spotted, holding hands, hugging, and yes … even kissing.
The couple is currently on vacation in New Zealand, where Josiah’s family is doing a number of public appearances and speaking gigs.
At one point, the site reports, Josiah and Lauren visited a military monument with a tank that visitors are encouraged to climb into.
Lauren apparently had trouble dismounting, and Josiah grabbed her around the waist to help her down.
That may not sound like a big deal, but as far as Josiah’s parents are concerned, he might as well have climbed into the tank with her and made a baby.
Interestingly, Josiah is unique amongst the Duggars in that this isn’t his forct courtship.
Josiah courted Marjorie Jackson back in 2015.
The relationship ended under mysterious circumstances, and neither party has gone into detail about why they decided to call it quits.
So perhaps the rules are different for Josiah because he’s been down this road before.
We doubt it, but that might be how the 21-year-old is justifying his more hands-on approach to dating.
We’re guessing his parents aren’t thrilled, and Lauren’s familt–who is rumored to be just as conservative–probably isn’t too crazy about it, either.

Back in November, Teen Mom OG fans were stunned by the news that Amber Portwood's ex-fiancé, Matt Baier, had gotten married.
The announcement came as a shock, not only because Matt and Amber had only broken up a few months earlier, but also because the public wasn't even aware that Matt was dating anyone.
We later learned that Matt and Jennifer Conlon got hitched after just a few weeks of dating.
Fans on social media offered words of caution about Baier, whose sketchy behavior was well-documented during his time on MTV.
Conlon dismissed their concerns, but new evidence obtained exclusively by The Hollywood Gossip suggests she may want to consider the possibility that Matt is every bit as shady as he appears…

If you’ve been watching Vanderpump Rules recently, you know that in its sixth season, the show shows no signs of slowing down in terms of delivering an endless stream of drama that’s by turns appalling and wildly entertaining.
Things got off to a wild start thanks to the not-all-that-surprising revelation that Jax Taylor’s been cheating on Brittany Cartwright.
But it’s a testament to just how bonkers the entire cast is that the show’s not building its entire season around that storyline.
Aside from the inevitable boring-ass Lisa-centric storylines (If we have to listen to one more conversation about Tom-Tom investor relations…) the show has maintained a pretty livlely pace with plenty of infidelity to keep fans engaged.
Monday’s episode saw yet another cheating scandal, neither of which were terribly shocking, but both of which made for compelling entertainment.
All summer, rumors that Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz were headed for divorce circulated non-stop on social media.
And the couple didn’t do much to dispel that notion, what with taking separate vacations and seldom appearing on one another’s social media.
So it didn’t come as much of a surprise when Lala Kent accused Tom of cheating on Katie on this week’s installment of Vanderpump.
But Tom’s puzzling response to the allegation has fans confused about what exactly transpired.
“Katie and Stassi and Kristen all went to New York,” Lala explained to Scheana Marie and Ariana Madix.
“I get a phone call from my friend Allie, and she’s like, ‘La, oh my God, Tom Schwartz is here. And she goes, ‘Dude, he can’t keep his hands off of me. They made out. He was like touchy-feely.”
Naturally, it didn’t take long for word to get back to Katie, and to the surprise of absoulutely no one, she flipped the eff out.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like this mystery will be resolved in the same satisfactory fashion as the Jax-Brittany-Faith debacle.
Tom reacted to the allegation the same way he reacts to everything–by playing with his hair, acting charmingly befuddled, and claiming his boozy brain formed no memories of the incident in question.
As with the last time he was accused of making out with some rando while blackout hammered, the truth will likely remain a mystery, and Katie will eventually move on.
(And by “move on,” we mean angrily bring it up every time she’s in close proximity to a bottle of tequila for the rest of her natural life.)
What’s really weird about all of this is Lala’s motivation for spilling the tea:
“I was down for her. I was never gonna say anything. She is not safe anymore,” Lala fumed after learning that Katie had pointed out that Kent is banging a maried guy in exchange for private jet flights.
“You f-ck with my relationship, I am coming for you full force. Dude, what a dumb ass bitch. Well, her marriage is gonna end, so that’s her karma.”
So wait, you weren’t gonna tell her that her husband is cheating, and you considered that to be some sort of favor?!
Yeesh. We were actually pretty down with Lala until this season, but she’s proving herself to be the malicious, shady-ass female equivalent of James Kennedy more and more with each episode.
Watch Vanderpump Rules online to get caught up on what’s thus far been an insanely drama-packed season.
Same Lamar Odom.
This is what fans of the former basketball star and ex-husband of Khloe Kardashian now fear.
TMZ has shared a couple photos of Odom from New Year’s Eve, an occasion which he celebrated in the Dominican Republic.
The images depict Odom hanging out in a local hot spot called Club 59, chilling in a sweater and chatting with a woman who witnesses say he kissed at midnight.
That isn’t the issue, of course.
Odom is certainly allowed to smooch and flirt; he’s a single man likely anxious to mingle.
But the photos also capture Odom with a beer in his hand.
You can check them out HERE.
According to TMZ sources, the green bottle Odom has in hand is called Presidente, a Spanish beer featured in breweries around the Dominican Republic.
He was also seen throwing back some tequila shots.
At this point, the star’s substance abuse problem has been well-documented.
It caused him to be suspended by the NBA a few years ago and it’s the main reason his marriage to Khloe fell apart.
In October of 2015, Odom fell unconscious while spending time at a brothel in Nevada, barely clinging to life in a coma for several days.
You would think such an incident would serve as a turning point, but it’s not that easy to overcome one’s addiction to drugs and/or alcohol.
It has appear on multiple instances since then that Lamar recognized his demons and was prepared to get clean and sober… he’s simply been unable to successfully do so.
In early November, for example, Odom collapsed at a night club in Los Angeles.
A spokesperson for the ex-reality star claimed Lamar was simply dehydrated and tired, but almost no one out there bought that excuse.
“Lamar is spiraling again. He’s out of control,” a source subsequently told People Magazine, adding about eight weeks ago:
“He was better this spring, but things got worse over the summer and everyone is worried things are going to get even worse and they’re scared for him.”
Moreover, it’s not hard to understand why Odom might be driven to drink these days.
While he has not spoken out directly on Khloe’s pregnancy, someone close to the situation say Lamar is crushed by the news.
He and Khloe talked openly about having children back during their relationship and it’s easy to see this exciting news not exactly being so exciting for Odom.
It’s easy to see it having the opposite effect, unfortunately.
As always, we wish the very best to Odom, who nearly everyone says is a caring, sensitive, outstanding individual.
He simply has an addiction.
We pray he overcomes it someday.
A teacher named Rachel Gonzalez was arrested after a boy’s father caught her and his son “romping” in her car.
While other teachers have been arrested for sexually preying upon their students, this story is particularly unsettling.
Because the teacher was 44 and the son … was 13.
The only silver lining to this disgusting story is that Rachel Gonzalez was caught and arrested.
An underage student’s father notified Bay City, Texas police of an inappropriate relationship between his 13-year-old son and a 44-year-old teacher.
We hope that we don’t have to explain why the boy’s name has been withheld.
The teacher’s name is Rachel Gonzalez.
Apparently, what first clued in the father was discovering conversations on the teen’s phone about their inappropriate sexual relationship.
We can’t imagine how horrifying it must be to discover that your very young son is being preyed upon by a much, much older sexual predator.
It must be even more chilling to find that the woman in question has been entrusted with the care and well being of hundreds of children.
It appears that Rachel Gonzalez may not be the boy’s teacher.
The school district reported that it had received “a report of an alleged inappropriate relationship between a student at one campus and a BCISD teacher from another campus.”
Given that there are reports of Rachel Gonzalez having been (at least at one time) a fourth grade teacher, that makes sense.
(Fourth graders, folks, are typically 9 or 10, not 13)
“The District immediately involved the Bay City ISD Chief of Police in order to evaluate the report, and quickly turned the matter over to the Bay City Police Department for a full investigation.”
According to Bay City police documents:
“During the investigation Detectives got a search warrant to seize and access the phone belonging to the victim. At that time, they were able to locate evidence indicating there was an improper relationship and Detectives requested warrants for the arrest of Gonzalez.”
They served those warrants on December 22nd. Rachel Gonzalez was then super arrested.
“She was transported to the Matagorda County Jail where she was booked in on charges of On-Line Solicitation of a Minor and Improper Relationship Between Educator and Student.”
And, in case you’re worried about this woman seeing the inside of a classroom instead of a jail cell, the school district also added:
“The teacher in question resigned from BCISD prior to the District learning of the allegations.”
The school district’s Board of Trustees President released an additional statement:
“While I cannot provide additional information at this time that could possibly compromise the legal process underway or the safety and well-being of BCISD students.”
The Board President then added:
“I want to assure our parents and community that student welfare is our top priority. We are committed to providing a safe school environment for BCISD students and staff.”
We should note that there are a few things that are unusual about this case:
-The scope of the age difference.
-That she appears to have been a teacher from another school altogether.
-The extent of the victim’s youth, because 13 is (usually) barely pubescent. We may be talking about a 7th grader, here.
It’s horrifying. We wish that we knew what sort of screening process schools should implement to prevent the hiring of sexual predators.
All that we can really suggest is that, for prospective teachers who think that they might be attracted to future students: perhaps, like diabetics who dream of becoming bakers, they should pick another profession before they ruin some student’s life.
