‘Teen Mom’ star charged after assault


A North Carolina teenager who stars on MTV’s reality show “Teen Mom 2” has been charged with assault after a fight recorded on video.

Brunswick County authorities say teen mom Jenelle Evans of Oak Island and two other teenage girls are charged with fighting. The 19-year-old Evans and 18-year-old Brittany Maggard also are charged with simple assault.

Authorities started investigating Friday after receiving calls about a video posted online that showed the teens fighting March 21. In the video, Evans appears to be hitting another young woman while bystanders encourage the fight.

Evans, Maggard and 19-year-old Brittany Truett have posted bond and are scheduled for trial April 26. It was not clear if they had attorneys.

Amy Adams lands role as Lois Lane


Amy Adams has played fairy-tale royalty in “Enchanted” and co-stars with the Muppets this fall. Now she’s satisfying another girlhood fantasy: playing Lois Lane.

Adams was cast last weekend as the tough reporter in the next Warner Bros. incarnation of “Superman,” directed by Zack Snyder (”300”) and starring British actor Henry Cavill (“The Tudors”) in the title role.

Adams is at the Las Vegas theater owner’s convention CinemaCon to promote this November’s “The Muppets” and said Tuesday that she always has identified with Lane for her combination of femininity and intelligence.

The studio aims to have the new “Superman” adventure in theaters late next year.
