Nick Cannon really is “all that!”
The multi-talented TV host, producer, and singer is also a very good friend. After being fed up with questions from reporters about his troubled Nickelodeon co-star Amanda Bynes, he wrote an open letter to his “sister” Amanda begging her to lean on him:
“Lately I have been hit with an onslaught of questions about someone I consider family, someone I watched grow up, and someone I genuinely feel is one of the most pleasant human beings I have had the pleasure of meeting, Amanda Bynes,” Cannon wrote. “The questions have ranged from, ‘Have you spoken to Amanda’ to ‘Are you working on her rap album.’ Sometimes I would answer in a playful humorous manner and sometimes I would brush it off as another pop culture topic that a reporter was trying to retrieve a sound bite for. But after recent events of Amanda being admitted under psychiatric care and reported as 5150, I see this as no laughing matter.”
He continued, “I am always the first to say that fame and entertainment is one of the best and easiest occupations to ever have, but one must know how to navigate through the matrix or you may find yourself in a very dark hole.”
“We all end up alone in that dark hole at some point in our lives and if you don’t have a foundation of friends and family to help bring you up and out it makes that journey long and detrimental,” Cannon wrote. “So I say to my sister Amanda Bynes you’re not alone. I’m here for you. I understand. I care and I appreciate you, because that’s what family does and that’s what family is for.”
He finished the letter with lyrics from Bill Withers’ “Lean on Me,” and a picture of the two of them from their Nickelodeon days.
Viva Las Vegas?
Wendy and her Hot Talk panel, Fox 5′s Dari Alexander, Elle.com’s Julia Allison and Micah Jesse debate the biggest headlines of the week.
Is Governor Chris Christie too fat to be president? Is a residency in Las Vegas the right thing for Britney Spears?
Find out what Wendy and her Hot Talk panel think… Do you agree?!
Beyonce Knowles, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston, Michelle Williams, Reese Witherspoon, Kate Hudson, Cameron Diaz, Ellen DeGeneres, Julianne Moore, Chris Rock, Jamie Foxx, Olivia Munn, Selena Gomez, Paul Rudd, Jon Hamm, Jennifer Westfeldt, Will Ferrell, Sarah Silverman, Amy Poehler, Adam Scott, Rashida Jones, John Slattery, Jeremy Renner, Conan O’Brien, and others join together in the fight against gun control, in a new PSA for DemandaPlan.org.
The campaign, started by Mayors Against Illegal Guns, comes a week after the horrific massacre in Newtown and amid the polarizing debate rippling through the U.S. about gun violence and the Second Amendment.
Looking into the camera, they read through a list of some of the 31 similar attacks carried out in the US since Columbine in 1999.
‘Virginia Tech. Tucson. Aurora. Fort Hood. Oak Creek. Newtown. How many more?’ they ask. Watch the moving PSA here:
The New York Daily News reports that actor Stephen Baldwin became the latest celebrity lifesaver on Thursday when he rushed to help an epileptic woman having a seizure at the posh Peninsula Hotel in New York.
“All of a sudden, every head turned because there was this loud bang. It was this girl, fallen on the floor… It was pretty violent. I held her hand and said a few prayers… I wanted to make sure the young lady was okay and her breathing wasn’t restricted,” Baldwin told the newspaper.
Love finally found its way into Jennifer Aniston‘s life! After their year-and-a-half long romance, actor-screenwriter Justin Theroux finally popped the question to Aniston on his 41st birthday, and received the best birthday present when she said yes! So cute!
Theroux‘s rep confirmed to PEOPLE magazine, “Justin Theroux had an amazing birthday on Friday, receiving an extraordinary gift when his girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, accepted his proposal of marriage.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
