CELEB SPOTTING: Amanda Bynes on Sunset Blvd After Being Released from Psychiatric Hold

Amanda Bynes is free again. According to E! Online, the actress has reportedly been released from Las Encinas hospital, where she has been on involuntary psychiatric hold since Oct. 10.

Amanda was spotted walking down Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood last night. According to TMZ, who snagged the pictures of the star, a hearing officer felt Amanda was stable enough so she could NOT be held involuntarily, so he ended the 30-day hold that had been granted last week and Amanda walked out the front door.”

Amanda’s mother Lynn Bynes was granted temporary conservatorship of her daughter on Monday. A date has been set for Feb. 24, 2015  to revisit the status of the conservatorship.

I swear, I really just want Amanda to get well and do better with her life. I’m not sure what’s going on in her head, but she has way too much talent to just let it go to waste like this. I’m constantly hoping that she will be able to rise up from the ashes, but, most importantly, get her mental health back together.

Amanda Bynes Hospitalized On Psychiatric Hold!

For quite some time now Amanda Bynes has been a hot mess.

But it was this recent video of Bynes out shopping (and attempted shoplifting) that had me at, “WTF, GET this girl some help!”

And finally Bynes has been put into a hospital, but for how long?

According to TMZ, Amanda thought a car service was taking her to The London Hotel where her parents and their attorney were going to meet her. In fact the parents had made arrangements with the car service to take her to a Pasadena hospital instead … where their lawyer, Tamar Arminak, was waiting with doctors.

TMZ reports doctors placed her on a 5150 psychiatric hold, where she will be held for 72 hours. That hold can be extended for 14 days, and we’re told during that time there will be a move to get another conservatorship.

This poor girl. Hopefully she gets the help that she needs.

Amanda Bynes Arrested for Allegedly Being Under the Influence

Oh no. Looks like Amanda Bynes was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence!

The actress was arrested on Sunday morning with the California Highway Patrol West Valley Office determining that she was indeed on something while behind the wheel, though the substance hasn’t been revealed yet. “Amanda was displaying symptoms that led us to believe she may have been under the influence of a stimulant,” a CHP spokesperson told E! News. “It possibly could be a combination of a stimulant and other drugs. We do not know.”

Amanda was released on $15,000 bail, but this is definitely not over yet. Because she is still in the middle of her three-year probation from a DUI back in 2012, it’s possible that she might have to spend some time behind bars. “As far as the criminal case is concerned, she is facing the real possibility of jail time,” criminal defense attorney Troy Slaten said to E! “If she is convicted of a second-offense DUI, the law requires a minimum of 96 hours (or four days) of jail.” (Slaten has never represented the actress, but just gave some legal opinion on the situation to the media outlet).

After a six month treatment program last year, Amanda seemed to be doing well, moving in with her parents and look healthy! She apparently moved out several months ago, but was attending school at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Irvine, CA. tyra

I’m just….disappointed. I was literally thinking about her the other day, and was happy that she was staying on the right path, and then this. Amanda has so much talent, and I hate to see her revert back to her old ways! Hopefully, she gets it back together.

Amanda Bynes Bong Throwing Charges Dismissed

Congrats to the one and only Amanda Bynes on having a bit of a good news day. Why? Because Amanda Bynes has charges dismissed by a judge in connection with that NYC marijuana bust.

TMZ predicted the outcome, which was pretty obvious providing (of course) Amanda not get in any more trouble for about 6 months. And she did, and now she’s reaping the rewards of a few less charges on her record. Huzzah!

If you don’t remember- the charge in question supposedly occurred when Bynes threw a bong out the window of her apartment in NYC after the cops followed up on complaints from her neighbors that she’d been acting crazy and smoking weed.

At that time, Bynes was charred with evidence tampering, reckless endangerment and marijuana possession.

Last January, Bynes was told that all would be well if she kept her nose clean, so to speak. Her lawyer spoke with TMZ and said that she’d met all conditions (read: stayed out of any trouble) and that the judge commended her on the way she’s behaved recently- formal dismissing all charges and sealing the file.

Amanda Bynes Address Mental Health Rumors: She’s Not THAT Crazy!

People have been talking big time about Amanda Bynes and her “issues”. We’ve all got ’em just some worse than others, right? While people have been talking about Bynes and her hospitalization, she hasn’t been talking. But now through her attorney she is!

In a new People interview, the actress’ lawyer Tamar Arminak set the record straight about the condition that led Bynes to become hospitalized and under the conservatorship of her mother last year.

“She has remained silent because she believed it was best to keep her mental health diagnosis private. However, she asked me to dispel certain rumors,” explains Arminak.

He went on, “For the record, Amanda does not have schizophrenia, nor has she ever been diagnosed with it.”

And you all should also know that, “Amanda currently is on zero medication. She’s devoted to living her life as healthy as possible. She’s never had a history of abusing alcohol or hard drugs, and she’s proud to say she’s been marijuana-free for the past nine months,” says Arminak.

Well here is hoping that she can continue to stay on the right track.

Her lawyer continued, “Her family is closely involved with her day-to-day life but they try to give her as much autonomy as possible. he’s doing extremely well. Her primary focus is bonding with her family and being a student.”

Another source is saying that Bynes is working on getting better and “continues to undergo outpatient therapy several times a week,” and is “still working through the causes of her past bizarre behavior.”

She is set to stay under conservatorship through September.

CELEB SPOTTING: Amanda Bynes After Rehab Walking Dogs with Her Parents

Amanda Bynes is out of rehab and looks much better! After several months of treatment for mental illness, the actress was spotted out on a walk with her parents, Lynn and Rick, and their dogs in Thousand Oaks, Ca., on Dec. 5.

Amanda rocked  a black leather jacket, white “Gangsta Love” sweatshirt, skinny jeans, sneakers, sunglasses and a baseball cap. Just this simple look shows her looking a lot healthier and normal than recent months!

The actress was placed on a 5150 involuntary hold back in July after months of strange behavior. In September she was transferred from the psych ward at UCLA Medical Center to a treatment facility in Malibu.

“Amanda and her entire family would like to thank everyone who’s contacted them with good thoughts and wishes for Amanda’s recovery,” her attorney, Tamar Arminak, told Us Weekly on Thursday. “Amanda has completed her inpatient rehabilitation and she’s feeling better every day.” Arminak also added: “She’s now looking at various colleges with the intention of majoring in fashion design. She’s mentioned before she’s interested in creating a clothing line. Despite the fact Amanda is no longer in a facility, her outpatient treatment is continuing. She’s very happy to reestablish the loving relationship with her family that she once shared.”

I really do wish Amanda the best of luck in her recovery. She’s such a talented actress, and I would hate to see that be thrown away! More importantly, this is her life! She’s still young, and I want to see her live a healthy life as well. In terms of her starting a fashion line, I say go for it! If it makes her happy, and keeps her mind focused, it would be a great thing for her.

Will Amanda Bynes be Home for the Holidays?

Amanda Bynes has been at rehab in Malibu since September, but it looks like her time there may soon come to a close- just in time for the holidays.

TMZ reports that sources connected with her treatment say Amanda’s mental health and meds have been stabilized to the extent that her doctors will let her leave- releasing her to her mom who will keep and supervise Amanda at the family’s house.

All of this could go down next sometime within the next month, meaning Amanda may get to spend the holidays with her family.

It was TMZ that first reported Amanda’s previous move from the UCLA psych ward to the rehab facility in Malibu. At that time, Amanda was apparently “freaking out” being in the psych ward, which was causing her treatment to suffer.

This time, it’s not the sterile environment of the psych ward that is thwarting her treatment, but the simple fact that she’s “going stir crazy” because she’s not allowed to go outside thanks to paparazzi swarming the place, compromising everyone’s privacy.

Here’s hoping being home is the next step needed to help Amanda keep improving.

Amanda Bynes’ Cray Is Certifiable

What’s Miley’s excuse?

According to her lawyer, Rich Hutton, one cannot expect Bynes to be held responsible for her actions lately, since she is swimming in a sea of cray and she not have to stand trial because of her limited mental capacity.

The judge on the case has obviously heard a thing or two about her infamous rants and actions over the past year because he transferred her case over tot he mental health court.

Bynes is currently still in treatment for her mental illness under the conservatorship of her parents.

Meanwhile, Miley Cyrus is free to roam the streets in a thong and black markers across her areolas.

Amanda Bynes: Let the Lock-Up Begin!

It looks like Amanda’s gonna be shackled by her parents now!

A judge has just decidedamanda-bynes-1-600 that the actress and blue haired maven must pretend she is under 18 years of age again and do what her parents say!

At least for the immediate future.

The judge decided that Amanda was a danger to herself and others (including fashion) and was trying to help improve her mental health. Her parents contend that their daughter is blowing through her $4 million in savings and planning to put a stop to the fall out. How long will Amanda be under her parent’s control?

The conservatorship lasts until September 30th, with a move to make it permanent decided at that time. Amanda may want to get Britney on speed dial and find out how she should act to get released. On second thought…maybe she shouldn’t!

Amanda Bynes: Shackled!

It looks like America’s Favorite Crackie (sorry, Lindsay!) is not going anywhere anytime soon!

Behold the power of the 5150 hold!

According to reportsextralarge, a judge has ordered the blue haired pyscho case to remain in the mental ward for a bit longer. Now, Amanda doesn’t seem to significant chunks of her medulla oblongata are missing, but those close to her know better. So as her parents fight to keep her under lock and key, Amanda’s paid pieces are trying to break her out of the cray cray clink. Bynes is on meds now, but is still considered a danger to herself and others. According to friends, she seems to be schizophrenic. If this is the case, then we hope she gets all the help she needs. If that is not the case, she is one crazed loon and we say let her out so we can report on this ignunce because she is putting Lohan out of business!

The Ties (And ‘Rents) That Bynes

Amanda Bynes better call up Britney Spears and get a quick conference on the world of cray because she is entering it full throttle! After getting into some light fire fare over the past weekend, a judge has decided that Amanda is best kept under wraps, shackles, straightjackets, et cetera. As she remains in the psych ward for further evaluation, her parents are attempting to gain a conservatorship over her.

Lynne and Rick Bynes have filedorig-21230599 the necessary paperwork to set the wheels in motion to protect their daughter from further outbursts of f*ckery. They allegedly had tried before, but Amanda had not done enough in the field of craziness to warrant such an intervention, but now it looks like things have taken a change for the worse and it looks like Amanda will be on a leash possibly for the next few months. And while in the psych ward, Amanda was tested for all drugs and guess which one she came up positive for?

Green sugar madness!

Does this mean that her crazy crown is about to get yanked? Has the door been open yet again for Lindsay Lohan to recover it?!

Stay tuned!

Solange Knowles Cancels Tour Dates

Beyonce’s younger sister knows when to bow down and disappear for a while. Perhaps she should share this advice with Bey?

The singer was set to begin a European tour starting in August, but just announced its cancellation, citing a need to protect her physical and mental health. Hey, at least she did not use the old standby that most celebs use: ‘exhaustion’. Instead, Solange released a statement2013 Vanity Fair Oscar Party:

“I wish I could put in words how much of a difficult decision this was but between moving part time to a new city, starting my son in a new school, and writing/recording my new record. I really had to make the best decision for my mental/physical health and provide some stability for my family.”

Congratulations to Solange for putting family and health first instead of going on tour and then going full-blown cray. Perhaps Amanda Bynes is more inspiring than she knows?!

Amanda Kicked from The Ritz!

With the clock ticking until Lindsay Lohan exiting rehab, Amanda Bynes knows that the only way to retain her newly, hard-earned title as ‘White Girl Wasted’ is to go all out and so her antics continue! What’s happening in the world of sheer lunacy with America’s new favorite crackhead? Well, someone just got booted out of the Ritz-Carlton in NYC and fitting the actress, she did it in singular style!

Bynes claims not to smoke the green sugar, but guess what smell was wafting out of her room, slapping all of the help as they cleaned the floor? Yes…that. Since Bynes wasted no time in verbally slapping the staff left and right (she told the desk attendant that she was “too ugly” to check her in and referred her to a plastic surgeon) they surely did not waste one moment kicking her blue-haired ass to the curb.

Amanda claimsamanda-bynes-blue-wig she was not kicked out, but left on her own terms, but we call bull crappy on this one! And Amanda, if you’re smoking the sticky icky, why are you denying it? Just get a medical marijuana card in L.A. Like everyone else!!!

Rae Dawn Chong vs. Oprah?

I mean, really? Who saw this one coming? Well, who saw Rae Dawn Chong coming at all? The last time we saw her was the 80s! Apparently, hometrick needs a check and the best way to get one of those these days (side-eye to you, Amanda Bynes!) is to verbally slap another celebrity. Taking a cue from the attention whore handbook, Rae had a few choice words/sentences for The Queen of All Media. And as you can probably guess, none of them are nice. Miss Chong better watch her back, because Oprah may be coming for her with the quickness!

The actress releasedCB40D29480C2AD4B9DF296D33EA34_h316_w628_m5_crTKGosRd a video calling her former ‘The Color Purple’ co-star a “house n*gger” among other things. She went even further and called Oprah “fat”, “ugly”, and a “brown-noser”.

The two portrayed characters in the film that didn’t like one another and maybe it wasn’t so hard to film those scenes?

No word from Oprah’s camp yet, but we’d bet money that Gayle is sharpening a shank as we speak!

Tara Reid Is Taking Up The Lohan Baton

Tara Reid, as we all know, was/is the Lindsay Lohan of the early 2000s. Of course, Lindsay Lohan took that crack baton and was showing no signs of giving it up any time soon, but damn rehabilitation clinics got in the way. So now that The Unhinged Ginge is drying out for about 80 more days, Tara Reid and Amanda Bynes are suddenly coming out of the crack woodworks to snatch that baton and reclaim the crown!

On Wednesday night, Tara was back to her old Hollywood skanktricks. The paparazzi taracaught her outside a club having difficulty standing. While many consider some of her best work to be possibly horizontal, we’ve got to say that this is never the best look in public.

But perhaps Tara just had an off night because unlike Lohan, she did not get behind the wheel and run over a few photographers and then blame her assistant. Ms. Reid didn’t hit someone else’s car and then flee the scene of the crime. No no no! Tara kept it semi-classy and had a driver take her drunk ass home.

Ah, welcome to adulthood.

We’re waiting on you, Lindsay!
