Amanda Bynes was arrested in her NYC apartment last night for marijuana possession and throwing evidence out the window, which is a felony. Police were called after Amanda was smoking pot in the lobby of her apartment…acting erratically and talking to herself. When cops arrived they knocked at her door and she let them in. But when police saw the bong Amanda quickly tossed it out the window. Amanda was placed under arrest and went ballistic, yelling, "Don't you know who I am?" She will face a judge this morning. Problem for her is…she just started three years probation, and also has a DUI case pending. She was booked for criminal possession of pot, as well as reckless endangerment and FELONY tampering with evidence.

Sure, a couple sketchy interviews might make it seem like Brad Pitt hated being married to Jennifer Aniston, but apparently Brad is spinning it now, saying it was him, NOT her. After his Esquire interview where he revealed he was drugged out and wasting his life while with Jen, one of his closest friends, Jean Black, spoke for Brad saying the split had nothing to do with Jen not being good for him. She said:
"I think Brad was ready to soar when he met Angie. I know that he and Jennifer are very good friends and he cared deeply for her … But in Angie he saw a very adventurous person who was grabbing on to life and taking it to its highest degree. It was intriguing because I felt Brad had that in him and wanted to unleash it."
Jerry Lewis was asked to name his favorite female comedian during the Cannes Film festival and he ACTUALLY said, “I don’t have any.” In 1998 he famously said that watching women do comedy “sets me back a bit” and that he has trouble with the notion of would-be mothers as comedians. When asked if he has changed his mind at all because of performers like Melissa McCarthy and Sarah Silverman, the 87 year old sexist said of women performing comedy…”I can’t see women doing that. It bothers me.”
Mariah Carey dropped an S-bomb AND had a wardrobe malfunction on Good Morning America today when her dress just couldn’t hold her in and popped open on live TV!! Mariah said, "Oh shoot, the back of my dress just popped!" talking to Lara Spencer this morning on a stage in Central Park. Mariah started chatting with Spencer when … something happened. Her zipper appeared to have malfunctioned. Mariah said "It popped, darling." Handlers scurried to fix the wardrobe malfunction, said, "Ok, I'll just hold them up the whole time," clutching her boobs. They cut to commercial. When they returned, Carey was wearing the same dress. All seemed fine.
