Amanda Bynes' Engagement Story Might Not Be Bullshit
Today in an interview with In Touch, Amanda Bynes revealed that she is engaged to a 19-year-old bait shop employee named Caleb. Given what appears to be her mental state, it was easy to to assume her story was some sort of made-up fairy tale. But, believe it or not, it looks like it actually checks out.
According to In Touch, Bynes said that Caleb is 19 years old and works at a bait shop in Costa Mesa, California, the coastal town an hour south of Los Angeles where he lives. These details came off like the celebrity version of the high school virgin who swears he had sex with his girlfriend he met at camp, but they are also highly specific, so we decided to try and find a place that matched up.
It wasn't too hard. Jimmy's Fishing Supply store is off Newport Blvd. in Costa Mesa, just minutes from the West Coast Highway and Newport Beach. This afternoon I called Jimmy's and asked to speak to Caleb—the man who answered the phone said that Caleb wasn't working today and that he didn't know when he would be in again because he was "on vacation in New York or something."
Bynes, of course, is currently in New York, and today she was photographed with various dudes, any one of which could be a 19-year-old bait shop employee named Caleb.
