In a Ventura, Calif  courtroom Friday  it was revealed the actress is now under a 30-day psychiatric hold initiated by her doctor, after she had been hospitalized for 17 days

Judge Glen M. Reiser agreed with her doctor's finding  of her lack of capacity to give consent for medical care," and approved, temporarily, the actress's mother Lynn Bynes's request to take legal control over her daughter's well-being and finances.

While the actress is hospitalized, however, her doctor will maintain authority over her treatm
The actress's court-appointed attorney, Mary Shea, told the judge her client does "oppose and object [to the conservatorship]. She doesn't feel there's a need

The conservatorship grants Lynn Bynes, who attended the hearing with her husband Rick, the power to make decisions over where her daughter will live, including basic needs like food and clothing. She also has the power to manage the actress's savings of $3 million

Amanda, who was expected to show in court, did not attend the hearing  I do still want to have a dialogue with her the judge stated

Lynn Bynes will remain temporary conservator until Sept. 30

During the hour-long session with a personal trainer, The Client List star lifted weights and performed squats on an inflatable ball

Hewitt dressed her baby bump in a tight gray tank top. The rest of her look included purple yoga pants, Nike sneakers, a baseball hat and a sweater tied around her waist. "I've been doing yoga and some Pilates and working out with a trainer, doing cardio and weights and stuff so my arms are strong to hold baby," she told Us Weekly at an Old Navy event July 13. "I've been working out, which I feel happy about. That's been a good thing -- not something that I thought I'd be able to do because you just feel like you have to be careful with yourself, so that's been great."

Us Weekly broke the news of Hewitt's pregnancy and engagement in June. Since then, the bubbly brunette has been relaxing at home in California. "Life is good -- it's busy! Lots of big changes and things going on," she said. "It's a really happy, positive time, which I'm grateful for."

Hewitt has already begun asking her fellow mommy friends for parenting advice Their best tip? Just to be human versus superhuman she shared  I think most people, when they're getting ready to be a mom, they go  Oh my gosh I have to have all of the answers right now,' but every kid is different, every parent is different and every child and parent relationship is different so you just sort of have to wait until you're in it and do the best that you can to try to zen in the middle of it all

As far as wedding plans go Hewitt pointed to her bump and joked We have this to deal with for now

Tameka Foster Denied Temporary Primary Custody of Usher's Two Sons

Usher Raymond will retain primary custody of sons Usher V, 5, and Naviyd 4 The singer, 34, appeared in court on Friday, Aug. 9, after his ex-wife Tameka Foster 42 requested an emergency child custody hearing in light of a pool incident that nearly resulted in the death of their elder son

(When Aunt Rena Oden and a housekeeper were unable to free Usher V from a pool drain house contractors Eugene Stachurski and Ben Crews rescued the young boy

After a bitter custody battle in 2012, Raymond won primary custody of his boys; Foster has limited custodial rights  Friday's hearing lasted more than two and a half hours  When Foster took the stand, she began by giving an update on Usher V's health My son is alive. He's alive. I'd say he's doing well the celebrity stylist told the courtroom I wouldn't say he's at 70 percent, but he's well because he's alive

Foster claimed that her firstborn  had to be revived and brought back to life She added My son basically had died on the scene, from what I was told by the doctor." Raymond's lawyer asked to dismiss her allegations as hearsay, which a judge sustained It's not hearsay because I'm in the hospital with my son Foster argued

The problem is I don't live with Raymond anything I say  he'll stand up and say it's hearsay Foster complained

Foster later said that Raymond waited about an hour to inform her that their son had been hospitalized she argued that the Voice mentor downplayed the severity of the situation I thought my son's arm was maybe broken maybe playing or something, because I knew he wouldn't call me if it were a minor abrasion or a cut she said, noting that they typically correspond via email  But he called and said that my son had been cut and he was on his way to the children's hospital

When Foster arrived on the scene, she said Usher V was  hysterical and screaming She added that  doctors were restraining him on the table Foster also revealed that Raymond had not informed her that their children were not in the care of pre-approved nannies, but instead were being looked after by Oden, Raymond's aunt.

Foster said Oden is incapable of properly caring for their children due to a medical disability related to a back injury.  Naviyd and Usher are very rambunctious They're very active. They're very much like twins, they're one year a part  There was an incapacity and an incapability to handle the situation she said referring to the Aug 5 pool incident

Raymond's ex-wife alleged that the singer has not visited his son in the hospital since Monday At about 2 in the morning  his heart rate dropped to a dangerous low. It got to like in the 50s. I sent him an email Foster said the R&B singer never replied and never showed up I left this morning for the first time at 9:45 she added

Oden's 911 call was then played for the courtroom, which sent Foster into hysterics Do you believe that Aunt Rena has the control over the children that's necessary to ensure their safety Foster's attorney asked. She replied I don't believe she has any control over the kids I don't know if this is considered hearsay but Naviyd jumped into the pool. He can barely swim That could have been a double tragedy

Foster did say that Oden is a  good person and a  nice family member but said she doesn't trust her to care for Usher V or Naviyd

Oden was next to take the stand She admitted that she is not licensed to administer CPR, but her mother, a registered nurse, taught her how. She was repeatedly asked if she left Naviyd alone by the pool while trying to get help for Usher V, and each time, Oden replied I don't recall

When asked if she has any first-aid training, Oden replied,  Uh I know how to take care of children Though she has no formal education I have a 20-year-old son that I raised she explained I was a single parent

Foster was then questioned by Raymond's legal team, who read a list of inaccuracies in her affidavit. Foster acknowledged that she was, at the time, misinformed. In regard to their previous custody hearing, Foster said, "I never thought it was a fair ruling, no

Raymond took the stand next, fielding questions from Foster's attorney. The musician  who had been at a nearby recording studio at the time of the incident  explained why he did not immediately inform his ex-wife about what transpired that afternoon. "I knew that there had been an accident in the pool but I didn't have clarity of what had taken place," he said Usher V didn't' want to go to the hospital, he was very irate. I did my best to calm him down and help him understand what had taken place

After speaking with medical professionals, Raymond said, "I told her that as of right now, Usher's fine. That there had been an incident in the pool and he's breathing, he's fine, he's a little hysterical She informed me that she was having a root canal at the time. I said you should definitely get here She arrived shortly after that."

Raymond revealed that the pool at his current residence in Georgia has not been formally inspected. "The children, when anywhere, not just the pool, have an understanding that when their names are called, they stop, look and listen," he said, adding that the boys know "not to run around the pool: and to "never jump in the pool unless an adult is there."

After much debate, a judge ruled in favor of Raymond. "What happened here was an awful accident, and I don't know based on the evidence I've heard, had any single person been at the poolside, that one person could have done better than Ms. Oden," he said. He also told Foster that her "standards for caregivers are very high."

"Most people who cared for us or our kids probably didn't' have all the qualifications that you required," the judge told Foster. "I'm denying the motion. I would say, Mr. Raymond, in the future you would be well-advised to keep your former spouse informed about your whereabouts and who is taking care of the kids. That will be a feature perhaps in this case as it moves forward or the companion case as it moves forward
