People magazine reported on May 30 that Lance Bass is scared for Amanda Bynes. According to People, Lance and Amanda worked together in 2005 when she starred in “Love Wrecked,” a movie Bass produced. Since then, their friendship has bloomed. People reports that Bass called into a Las Vegas radio show and mentioned Amanda has “some mental problems” and that “she’s not able to see that.”
He goes on to tell Mark and Mercedes, the DJs from the Las Vegas radio show, “No one is able to get to her. I’m actually scared for her, and I hope someone is able to give her the help she needs.” When People magazine mentioned Bynes in their tweet about the article, she had this to say:
“I ignored Lance Bass on twitter and now he is saying I have a mental illness. Sorry you’re an ugly ex boy band member w/ no talent or career”
In case you have not noticed, “ugly” is what Amanda calls everyone who says she has something mental going on. She then followed up with, “I haven’t spoken to Lance Bass in 11 years. To say I have a mental illness out of nowhere makes me lash out! You’re making me crazy!”
Lance Bass has a completely different outlook on the whole story. He took to his Twitter a short time later to say, “I never spoke to a magazine about her. Now what?”
On May 31, Lance fired off a few more tweets.
“Ouch- The Amanda I know would never had said something like this to me- either this is a fake person or she really does have a mental illness. Way too sad. I reached out- all i can do”
“Now I really don’t think this is Amanda- we shot LoveWrecked together 7 years ago and she was just at my bday party 3 years ago. Hmmm 11?”
Then celebrity blogger Perez Hilton welcomes Lance into the Amanda Bynes “ugly” club.
“Pahleeeze- I’ve been the president since 1998! RT @PerezHilton: @LanceBass Welcome to the ugly club! Ha”
Radio host James Vaughan then reached out to apologize to Lance and Amanda.
“I would like to publicly address our role in the @AmandaBynes + @LanceBass drama. Lance called in to the show as a favor because of a radio segment we were hosting as part of a contest to win money to help kids get free cancer care at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. It was all meant to be positive and help in a positive way.@ James_mne and I, as well as Lance were not aware this topic would be addressed.
We are very sorry for any pain this may have caused Amanda or Lance. Our only goal was to raise awareness and money for the kids of St Jude.
Our prayers and good thoughts go out to Amanda. Spread LOVE y’all. It does so much more than you think.”
That clears up everything. Doesn’t it? Perhaps People magazine should be the ones sending out an apology, not James Vaughn. Sound off in the comments below.
