PHOTO GALLERY: Tour a Celebrity ship After creating a “virtual wallet” at the ship’s casino desk to activate and fund their accounts, cruisers will be able to choose from games including slots, table games and video poker to play anywhere onboard. One caveat: The ship needs to be in international waters. “This state-of-the-art technology allows guests to play outside of the action-filled casino, whether relaxing by the pool, or waiting for their partner to get ready for their night of onboard dining and drinks, and will be an excellent addition to the edgy entertainment we offer onboard,” said Celebrity Cruises’ senior vice president of operations Greg Purdy, in a prepared statement. The Cantor gaming app is compatible with Apple and Android devices. The new technology will be installed on Celebrity’s five Solstice-class ships and four Millennium-class ships in coming months, Celebrity officials said.

The mother-of-two’s hair was not so put together and looked a bit dishevelled which may have been caused from the antics she may have taken part in for Celebrity Juice.

I could care less, Morris said about being followed by a celebrity on social media. Morris said she does not follow very many celebrities. I follow a lot of house music, Morris said. As mentioned by Morris, social media can either make or break a person and some celebrities are having very public downfalls. Virtually every person has heard of, if not directly seen, Amanda Bynes recent mental breakdown. With her constant Tweets calling others ugly and saying she wants rapper Drake to murder my vagina, it was not long until her downward spiral began. It makes me happy when Im depressed, Morris said about Amanda Bynes public meltdown. These odd antics went off for several months until Bynes parents and authorities stepped in. However, they did not intervene until the former child star lit an elderly womans driveway on fire as well as accidentally catching her dog on fire in the incident. Now Bynes has been on a 5150 psychiatric hold, where she has been diagnosed with Schizophrenia. According to Dictionary.com, Schizophrenia is a severe mental disorder characterized by some, but not all of the following features: emotional blunting, intellectual deterioration, disorganized speech and behavior, delusions and hallucinations. Bynes has been treated for her mental illness and is making progress. Although her very public antics came as a shock to many people because she had not been directly in the public eye for some years, Bynes image seems to be thoroughly wrecked. Justin Bieber is yet another example of a celebrity who is slowly hurting his image by his Twitter and Instagram posts. The troubles first started when pictures of Bieber smoking marijuana and drinking illegally surfaced on his Twitter and Instagram accounts.
