DRAKE BELL SAYS BYNES ISN’T CRAZY
Drake Bell, who starred with Amanda Bynes on Nickelodeon’s The Amanda Show, insists she’s not crazy. “Amanda and I are close… I talk to her every day. She’s a sweetheart. I had lunch with her yesterday, and she’s brilliant. She’s good, and she’s healthy,” he told OK magazine Saturday. Bell says he’s even talked to her about her odd behavior, saying, “I’m like ‘dude, you come off crazy.’ She’s like, ‘I know, but I don’t mean to. I just changed the way I look.’” In fact, Bell says he’s never even seen her act strange. “Anytime I’ve ever been with Amanda, she’s totally coherent, totally there, totally everything,” he says.
BYNES CALLS RAPPER UGLY
Regardless of what Bell says, Amanda Bynes still seems pretty crazy to us. She took to Twitter Monday and continued her nuttiness. Regarding her ongoing love/hate relationship with rapper Drake, who she once wanted to “murder my vagina,” Bynes tweeted, “I only like @Drake because he’s so ugly,” adding that he has “ugly cheeks.” She then conceded, “Fine he is not, but he knows he’s ugly! I’ve spoken to him!”
BYNES LANDS RECORD DEAL
Finally, Amanda Bynes may soon have a new career. The 27-year-old has been offered a record deal with the East Coast rap label Chinga Chang Records. Producer Daniel Herman told Radaronline he’s reached out to Bynes through her attorney and offered her a deal. "She's phenomenal and that's the crazy thing about this," Herman told The Huffington Post. "This is the perfect home. This isn't just a gimmick."

County Fire Department that the 15-year-old had “OD’d on 20 Motrin and cut her arm with a kitchen knife,” adding that she is “awake and breathing.” The call was apparently made after Paris contacted a suicide hotline.

KLUM’S PUBLIC FIGHT WITH BOYFRIEND
Things may not be so rosy for Heidi Klum and boyfriend Martin Kristen. According to the New York Post, the pair got into an alcohol-fueled argument in the middle of a NYC restaurant Sunday night. “They had been drinking with a male friend at a table, and things became heated very quickly,” said a witness. Heidi became so enraged she left the restaurant and tried to grab a cab. When she was unsuccessful, she returned but wouldn’t rejoin her table and “stood in the doorway looking upset.” Kristen went to talk to her, but the argument continued and he finally left. A friend of the Project Runway host confirmed the account, but added, “all couples have disagreements, but most don’t get recognized when they have them.” And things seem to be better already. On Monday the couple was spotted in Manhattan holding hands.
DEXTER’S JENNIFER CARPENTER A HOMEWRECKER?
Dexter star Jennifer Carpenter is being accused of breaking up a marriage. Radaronline reports Carpenter, who was previously married to her Dexter co-star Michael C. Hall, has been secretly dating folk rocker Seth Avett, of The Avett Brothers, even though he’s technically still married. Said an insider, “No one saw this affair coming from those closest to Seth, but he finally left his wife last winter to be with Jennifer.” Insiders tell the site that Jennifer and Seth have been dating since 2011, and it ultimately destroyed Seth’s marriage. On Tuesday, Seth formally announced that he and wife Susan (who he married in 2008) were divorcing, explaining they “have been separated for some time.” But some fans believe Carpenter is directly responsible for the split. “Seth is a dog and Jennifer Carpenter is a homewrecker. Plain and simple,” wrote one fan. “I hope he’s happy now…Seth deserves nothing. Not even his fans.”

"Sunday while I was at work, a hotel employee found a small amount of marijuana in my hotel room. The police were called and responded," wrote the Good Charlotte frontman. "Sydney is my adopted home and I appreciate the way the NSW police handled the situation. They have informed me there will be no charges. I hope this didn't cause too much drama for anyone." According to the Sydney Morning Herald, less than five grams of pot was found in Madden’s room at the Darling Hotel, and he was asked to leave, which is company policy.

KENYA MOORE COUNTERSUES OVER EVICTION
The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kenya Moore is denying a report that she’s a deadbeat tenant. Earlier this month, the 42-year-old was served with an eviction notice, with the landlord claiming she was $848 short on her May rent.

She says she paid her $3,999 rent in full, and also alleges that her landlady, Conya Weems-Dillon, lied about the outstanding balance to gain media attention and to damage her reputation.
VICKI GUNVALSON FIGHTS BACK AGAINST VODKA LAWSUIT
The Real Housewives of Orange County’s Vicki Gunvalson is firing back against a lawsuit that claims she and boyfriend Brooks Ayers defrauded their partner out of $250,000 from a failed vodka venture. Professional poker player Robert Williamson III claims the pair double crossed him in their deal, and is suing for breach of contract, fraud and misrepresentation. But Vicki says she’s innocent of the charges. “My attorney will be filing a response to the frivolous suit within the next day or so,” the 51-year-old wrote on her Facebook page. “This response will reveal my side of the story and the lack of truth that was told. There will be more details to follow shortly. Thank you for your support.”
DUNHAM OKAY WITH ACTOR’S DEPARTURE
Lena Dunham doesn’t seem worried about the departure of Christopher Abbott from her HBO show Girls. "I've had so many concerned Twitter followers ask: What are you going to do without Charlie?" Dunham told The Los Angeles Times. "I want to say, 'If the show Girls relied on guys, we'd be up a creek without a paddle.'" Since Charlie and Allison Williams’ character Marnie reunited at the end of season two, Abbott’s leaving forced Dunham to split them up again. "Don't worry," said Dunham. "I've tried to come up with an emotionally honest version of the end of that relationship."
THE HEAT CRITICIZED FOR PHOTOSHOPPED AD
The new Melissa McCarthy/Sandra Bullock film The Heat is getting some flak for its recently-released UK posters, which seem to have digitally altered McCarthy’s face and neck to make them thinner. “Nobody is unclear [about] what Melissa McCarthy's body size is -- she's plus-sized and proud,” wrote the British entertainment blog The Shiznit. “So why have the designers of this poster done their utmost to Photoshop a good 30 lbs off of McCarthy's face?” The site added, “this is one of the worst Photoshop jobs I’ve ever seen, but it’s not just offensively bad craftsmanship – the intention behind it is downright nasty.” The Heat opens in theaters June 28th.
