The story goes: While leaving a West Hollywood club in her Range Rover with a friend, whilst trying to overtake a police car, Amanda Bynes clipped the rear corner of it instead. Amanda was arrested on Robertson and Santa Monica at 3am and was released on bail at 10.30am. Hot mess Hollywood news this Easter Weekend – can be read at The LA Times.
Bynes is America’s no.1 story today. Poor Amanda Bynes.

Buzzfeed’s link to Armie Hammer‘s mug shot, made me surf on over to TMZ to find out the scoop on this picture.
TMZ writes: Armie Hammer looks like the most clean cut criminal, snapped moments after arrest of pot possession in Texas. Armie was popped back in November in Sierra Blanca, TX — the same town where Willie Nelson and Snoop Dogg were arrested for a love of the Mary-jane-juana too.
What did the Texas police find? 3 pot cookies and one brownie. The case was dropped as Armie only had .02 ounces of ganja on him. One day in jail, a $1,000 bond paid and Armie was Scott free as if exiting an In N’ Out Burger for some California French fries.
What can ya say…. actors and their pot when ‘recharging their creative process’ if they’re not doing that whole method acting schtick for the cameras… For Armie…. method acting must be intense… obviously! *eyeroll*
In this photo, Armie looks like he’s doing Hollywood red carpet!!!

Men who look out for others are always gentleman and leaders.
Microsoft mogul Bill Gates is one such person. The futurist often alternates with his friend Warren Buffet as America’s richest person. Together both have set trends in how wealthy people should behave, creating a momentum of goodness towards others, via people of their wealth bracket who are like minded and like-hearted in their concerns for people on the planet. Because of this, he is a lighthouse of sorts.
Gates has persuaded nearly sixty of the world’s wealthiest entrepreneurs and business people to sign his “Giving Pledge.” Some of these outstanding people feature on Horiwood.Com in between Britney Spears news.
Gates friends all promise to donate the majority of their wealth to charity either during their lifetime or after death.
Bill would rather give away $30 billion to his foundation, than hold the richest person title in the world.
According to Forbes, The Gates Foundation, the world’s most influential charity, tackles tuberculosis and polio and funds famine-resistant crops to fight hunger.
He is calling for “a higher sense of urgency” in AIDS vaccine development and also pushing for better tools to rate teacher performance. This news is off the back that some teachers in US colleges are in a position of cheating student results to get funding. And, in a climate where the sciences and technology (financial management too) are skills of knowledge needing to come to the fore in the USA schooling system.
Gates holds 70% of his wealth in investment fund Cascade, dabbling in everything from autos to hedge funds to Mexican Coke bottler Femsa; the rest of his wealth is held in Microsoft stock.
Beneath his spectacles, this wise and considerate man is quite a guy. To think of farmers who grow crops and to affiliate yourself closely to people who garden and tend the earth, is very smart. Farmers are his people.

Jason Davis is being held under arrest at Newport Beach, where dude was caught with an illegal substance.
All that TV time, for that result?
Rehab is a process. Even the WSJ made the new Rehab Album front page news today. Dr. Drew, host of “Celebrity Rehab,” reality TV show says, “Jason was honest about his struggles with his sobriety on the reunion show. Hopefully, now that there are legal conquesces, further treatment will be mandated, which he so desperately needs. As I said when I saw him Wednesday, we care for him very deeply and we are here for him.”
The arrest happens a day after the show’s reunion, where Davis said he was ‘sober.’
I met Jason once in Hollywood, when I was the publicist for TAG+ Jeans denim fashion show at Area night club. I had no idea who he was, who his family was, neither did I care. Yet, Jason manage to convince me that he was a celebrity of Hollywood and should be allowed to see the fashion show, even though his name wasn’t on the list.
I can’t believe how skinny dude is now. Let’s hope the staying sober part can follow the health and fitness and dieting regime he’s kept up. It’s weird putting Jason’s mug shot online today.
I guess Kiwi-Aussie Keith Urban is a good guy for Jason to think about. Keith goes to rehab meetings each week still in The Valley to remain sober. Nicole Kidman goes with him. It takes a lot of support to live life without props and find strength in being okay with yourself. Let’s just call this a ‘hiccup’ for Davis to overcome, then. Go here to read more about rehabbed American superstars once like young Jason today with the same challenges. Temptation never goes away for an addict. Diverting energy into better things with a paradigm shift of focus is what helps anyone overcome drugs, booze or any other addiction too.
I can’t judge Jason. I am totally 200% Starbucks coffee addicted. At least three venti cups a day. Shocking! :)
And certainly, don’t talk to me about loving New Zealand butter. Heck yeah!

Jenelle Evans teen mug shot (above) at the age of 16, after getting her green hooded sweater arrested makes me ask – does she like her mary-jane-juana a little big too much?
I mean, Jenelle was found with a half ounce bag of the green Bob Marley stuff on her and a pipe that did not play music, while her 20 year-old boyfriend, Kieffer Delp made her carry it. What is going on there too? In Hollywood the star shines, their helpers carry everything for them, including their handbags so I guess Kieffer didn’t get that memo. Needless to say he’s not very gentlemanly or chivalrous either.
Anyway Jenelle was released on a $2k bail bond and at 16 she’s doing way too much for that reality TV show series on non school nights. I wonder what the model teen mom students at He Kaakano School for education of bright teen moms would have to say about Jenelle’s latest blaze with the law?
These young moms on their days off parenting with sitters at home looking after their baby Jaces are just so hard to keep up with. And getting arrested over possession of a plant is ridiculous anyway. Where’s the humanitarian hotness for the world in that?
It’s healthy for all parents to have time out from parenting, but these ones all seem to have rather snap-happy weekend lives as breeder reality TV pin-up girls of the USA! Have you noticed that?!

In a case of “Married Couple Behaving Badly”, Randy Quaid, brother of actor Dennis Quaid and Randy’s wife Eve, have caused a raucus online across America.
The couple’s penchant for trashing hotel rooms, rock star styles, landed them in jail this week. Their illustrious mug shots have been released by the Presidio County Sheriff’s Department in Texas.
The felony warrant for Randy and Eve’s arrest was for skipping out on the $10,000 hotel bill. It was issued by the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department for burglary, defrauding an innkeeper and conspiracy.
When driven to an ATM machine, the couple paid their $40,000 bail. These practical jokers got their 15 minutes of fame this week. How ridonkulous! Seriously though, Randy Quaid needs to be cast in Pirates of the Carribean 4 with Johnny Depp. He’s such a fun loving, badly behaved pirate!
