Police: Amanda Bynes arrested on suspicion of DUI

Actress Amanda Bynes apparently had a run-in with the law during Friday's early morning hours - literally.

The 26-year-old actress allegedly got into a fender-bender with a marked black-and-white cop car that contained a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy, according to a report from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

The report says that the officer was stopped at a Hollywood intersection, preparing to turn right about 3 a.m. "when a black BMW driven by...Bynes attempted to pass to the right...colliding with the right rear quarter panel."

Both cars suffered minor paint damage and, according to the sheriff's report, police then arrested Bynes on suspicion of driving under the influence and booked her at the West Hollywood Sheriff's station. According to TMZ, her bail has been set at $5,000, and she's reportedly still in custody.

'30 Rock': The self-evaluation of Pete Hornberger

One of the things that makes “30 Rock” consistently excellent is its deep bench of wacky supporting characters.

On last night’s episode, Liz and Jack took a back seat to the writing staff and the most under-appreciated character of all: Pete Hornberger. And in typical Hornberger fashion, his moment in the sun was actually a descent into a black hole of self-loathing.

Pete’s self-evaluation gave Jack pause (“those look like hands to me!”) when he wrote that his 5-year goal was to stay in the same position.

Friday Top Five: And now, for the news

If we learned anything this week, it's that 1): more viewers will watch Sarah Palin on "Today" than Katie Couric on "Good Morning America"; and 2) that kind of heated morning show competition could easily be spun into a script.

There's a reason why Hollywood often takes an interest in the lives of news anchors, journalists, magazine editors and the like  - every workplace has its drama, but it seems the media offers a special breed.

No wonder Aaron Sorkin will offer his perspective on the biz with his upcoming HBO drama "The Newsroom," the excellent trailer for which debuted earlier this week, and even Will Ferrell is reviving his "Anchorman" character, Ron Burgundy, for a sequel.

Kim Kardashian is staying mum on the question of whether she is currently dating Kanye West - at least, for now.

Friday morning on the "Today" show the celebutante didn't confirm she's seeing the outspoken rap star, a day after he released a song on which he seemed to profess his “love” for her - but she didn't quite deny that it's a possibility.

“Kanye and I have been friends for years,” she told "Today's" Ann Curry. “And you never know what the future holds or where my life will take me, so…"
