Amanda Bynes’ life has become an ongoing drama. The once-wholesome California teen-star, best known as a regular on Nickelodeon and the lead in Hollywood hits like What a Girl Wants and She’s the Man has lost more in the past year than her girl-next-door charm.
A year of living badly
It started in March last year with a seemingly routine traffic stop. Amanda was talking on her phone while driving, something that’s against the law in Los Angeles, and she received a ticket. From there things devolved into a landslide of incidents, each worse than the one before.
In early April, three days after her birthday, Bynes was arrested for DUI (driving under the influence) after shaving a layer of paint off a police car with a side-swipe, a crime she wasn’t officially charged with until June. By that time Bynes had already managed to rack up a few more offenses — both hit-and-runs — for which she was charged in September and which temporarily cost Bynes her license.
She proceeded to drive without her license, which resulted in the loss of her vehicle. Around this time Bynes announced her second “official” retirement from acting, pledging to concentrate on fashion and rapping, her new career choices.
Bynes pleaded not guilty to the hit-and-run charges, and they were eventually settled and dismissed. After submitting a no contest plea to the charge of driving with a suspended license, Bynes was sentenced to a mere three years’ probation. By this time, a full year and two months had passed since the initial incident, and no new charges had been filed against Bynes since September. Perhaps the drama was finally ending.
Trouble with the straight and narrow
Then, late in May, police were called to her apartment on a marijuana complaint. The doorman claimed Bynes was smoking in the lobby. At this point, things took a truly sinister twist. It’s reported that Bynes was followed to her apartment by police who claim they saw a bong, which Bynes allegedly tossed out her 36th-floor window.
To further confound her fans, Bynes was seen wearing a platinum wig as she was arrested and taken to Roosevelt Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation before being taken to the police station. She’s been charged with criminal possession of marijuana, tampering with evidence, and reckless endangerment.
Her lawyer speaks out
Richard Hutton, the DUI specialist who represented Bynes in her previous cases, is speaking out in her defense. Hutton is not representing Bynes against her current charges, but says he believes the incident was “blown out of proportion,” and it “doesn’t seem like much of a case.” He points out that while the rumor mill has been running wild, there is no physical evidence to prove that Bynes is guilty; that is, no marijuana and no pipe.
When building a defense against anything substance-related, whether it be criminal possession or DUI, having a good lawyer is more than half the battle — as Amanda Bynes can attest. Securing reputable, experienced, and quality representation can mean the difference between a settlement and jail time.
Bynes has been lucky so far, and maybe she’ll take her good luck as a sign to keep her day job; the life of a rapper is kind of hard.
The thrill of a great poker hand or the pull of a slot machine isn’t just for casinos anymore. Gamblers around the world have flocked to online casinos and mobile gambling apps, and there’s no denying that legalizing real money gambling in online casinos is the next step for the gambling industry.
Online Gambling: Much More than a Trend
Right now, virtual casinos only make up a small fraction of the gambling industry’s revenue. However, that’s looking to change. Increasingly, players are turning to online casino games and mobile phone apps to play their favorite games. At first, it seemed like virtual casinos were just a fad, but now, for these reasons and many others, it’s easy to see that they’re here to stay.
Convenience: Imagine having an entire casino at your fingertips– card games, slot machines, and other casino favorites just a click away or even in the palm of your hand. Online and mobile casino games make the trip to a casino obsolete, and players can use virtual casinos to practice playing their favorite games between trips.
Better Gaming Experience: In the past, virtual casino games have been repetitive and unexciting. However, mobile apps and online casino websites have seen incredible developments in recent years and are looking to get even better.
As far as real money casinos, a Las Vegas poker site just launched their first legal online gambling site. From here, players can expect the great experience of existing online casino games with real money stakes.
States Continue to Pass Online Gambling Laws: Pretty much the only thing holding online gambling back has been the legislation. Gambling laws are pretty straightforward across the country, but current laws don’t account for online and mobile gambling. Since virtual gambling is harder to patrol, it’s understandable that people would be hesitant to embrace it. It’s harder to keep underage gamblers from playing and there is always skepticism with exchanging money virtually. But the demand for online and mobile gambling is clear, and more and more states across the U.S. are catching up to meet the growing trends.
What does this mean for existing casinos? Online gambling isn’t the end for physical casinos, though they should be looking to new ways to integrate virtual gambling in their own casino experience.
If there’s one thing that commercials today have lost, it’s the jingle. Thankfully, Old Spice returns to an old school feel with new commercials promoting their new bar soap. Make sure you listen to the words as they’re hilariously spot on. Watch them below:
Whatever you think you know about how cable companies work, it’s probably wrong. You may think they’re all greedy, they all offer terrible customer service, and the selections they offer are poor compared to what they could actually offer. You’d be wrong to think these things because it’s much worse than that.
Keeping up with the Jones’s? Forget that–all anyone has wanted to do for eight seasons now is keep up with the Kardashians. While the series, Dash collection, public appearances and general overexposure of the family earned them millions, don’t forget about the brands who also benefited from the curvaceous sisters.
#1. Shoes, Shoes and More Shoes
Kim has three different closets just for shoes, separated into heels, boots, and sneakers/flip flops. However, she’s very vocal about her favorite designers including Christian Louboutin, Fendi, Manolo Blahnik, Mystique sandals, Nike and Reebok to name a few. Not that these brands needed much help, but a plug from the reality star with a body every woman wants can’t hurt–plus, Blahnik might have taken a little hit after Sex and the City went off air. However, will a pregnant Kim Kardashian continue to bolster sky-high stilettos post-baby?
#2. The Hilton
When the entire family spent a week in Bora Bora in 2011, they let everyone know about staying at the Hilton. That’s right up Kimmy’s alley since her old BFF Paris is the heiress to the hotel chain. Some people think a clan as wealthy as the Kardashians would opt for a stunning private house rental (or at least the Four Seasons), but that wasn’t the case. The Hilton, not to mention Bora Bora, greatly benefitted from that two-part episode special.
#3. How About Some Hanky Panky?
Kourtney’s pretty vocal about sharing some of her favorite things, including Hanky Panky underwear, particularly the Blurry Leopard print set. However, her reason for touting the lingerie set makes some people uneasy. “Mom always told us to wear pretty, matching underwear,” she revealed in Shape magazine. That strikes some people as the kind of advice moms shouldn’t be giving their daughters (unless, like Kris, they’re prepping them for their sex tape debut of course).
#4. A Fit for Every Woman
Many people’s favorite, Khloe, is all about finding looks that fit real women’s body shapes. “I love my jet denims!” she recently reported, especially since they make a fit for every woman. Not everyone–even if they’re related by blood–can have Kim’s killer booty, and most women need a little help looking great in jeans. Follow Khloe’s advice and check out Jet denims. She does, indeed, look fab in her acid-washed skinnies.
#5. The Kardashians: An Obvious Choice
No matter how many designer clothes the ladies (and sometimes Rob) flounced around in, no brand benefited more from Keeping up with the Kardashians than the Kardashian brand itself. Kardashian, Inc. earned $65 million in 2010 and the ladies have branched out to include everything from perfumes to lingerie lines. They get paid $25,000 to Tweet about a product, a quarter million to go to a nightclub, and the brand as a whole makes more than numerous A-list celebrities combined.
No matter what anyone says about the Kardashians, they know how to build a brand. They have a celebrity destination store in Vegas, their own diet supplements and know exactly what their fans want–more. Who knows if, when they’re blogging about favorite designers, they’re getting paid to do it or at least expect generous freebies out of the plug. The Kardashians have the power to boost the bottom line of any brand they want, but why would they look any further than their own empire?
People can say whatever they like about the Kardashians; in fact, that’s exactly what the Kardashians want. However, if someone’s looking for a little inspiration on how to build a brand that supersedes all expectations, there’s a lot to be learned from the family.
