Yep — not a good week to be Amanda Bynes.
The former Nickelodeon actress appears to have come down with an unfortunate case of “The Lohans” as she battles rumors of mental instability and a new criminal case stemming from her questionable behavior on the roadways.
Amanda has had a turbulent few months — including having her BMW impounded and her driving licence suspended while she faces charges of driving under the influence (DUI) and multiple accusations of leaving the scene of an accident. On Friday, Los Angeles County prosecutors charged the “retired” actress, 26, with two counts of driving with a suspended license.
Bynes was already facing a DUI case and hit-and-run charges involving two separate incidents. Her license was revoked in August…but that hasn’t stopped her from driving.
Earlier this week, the Easy A star was dropped by her agent, publicist and entertainment lawyer. Each handed in their resignation with claims that the move it is due to Amanda’s behavior becoming increasingly erratic in recent months.
Just days before the team exits, she was involved in two more bizarre incidents; locking herself in a store fitting room for nearly two hours and refusing to come out and stripping down to her bra during a gym class.
“Amanda stopped to take her T-shirt off, revealing only a tiny, black, strapless push-up bra – not a sports bra. She then picked up her Louis Vuitton handbag and pulled out her makeup kit and started reapplying her lipstick and eyeliner while looking at herself in the large mirror in front of her.”
“Hogwash,” says Bynes.
“I am doing amazing,” she told the Associated Press this week. “I am retired as an actor. I am moving to New York to launch my career. I am going to do a fashion line. I am not talking about being arrested for DUI because I don’t drink and I don’t drink and drive. It is all false.”
