What I’m about to tell you goes against everything we’ve previously thought about Amanda Bynes. That widely held belief that she’s one of the most responsible, upstanding citizens in Hollywood? Poof, it’s going right out the window. So if you want to keep living the dream, friends, then please don’t read any further. For there is a monster at the end of this book, and her name is Amanda.
Amanda Bynes hit a car. With her car. I know.
A Los Angeles woman filed a police report yesterday afternoon claimingAmanda Bynes rear-ended her and then, after a brief conversation, drove off without exchanging insurance information … TMZ has learned.
Kisa (last name witheld) tells TMZ she was driving her Toyota Corolla on Ventura Blvd. in the San Fernando Valley when she was struck by a woman in a black BMW. Kisa tells TMZ she didn’t recognize the woman at first — because she “looked like a hot mess” — but once they began talking, she realized it was Amanda Bynes.
Kisa says she got out her insurance card to exchange information, but says Bynes “seemed nervous about that.” She says Bynes told her the damage to the Corolla didn’t look that bad and proceeded to push her bumper back into place (that didn’t work, see pic below).
Bynes then, according to Kisa, said they didn’t need to exchange info since neither car was damaged badly. Kisa maintains, however, that Amanda’s car had “significant” damage to it.
Kisa says she continued to try and exchange info with Bynes, but Bynes just got in her car and drove off.
Kisa tells TMZ she called the police, who responded to the scene and took a hit and run report. Kisa says when she told the officer who hit her, the officer replied, “Didn’t she just get a DUI?”
Bynes was arrested on suspicion of DUI on April 6 (she pled not guilty) and was also accused of hit and run incidents on May 5 and May 27.
We’ve reached out repeateatly to Bynes’ reps, who have not got back to us.
Serious question: how many car accidents do you have to have before you realize that you’re just not good at it? And that leads me to my next serious question, which is this: booze or just a total lack of ability to drive? Probably booze, huh? And I get that alcoholism is a disease, I really, really do, and I’m not trying to make light of that, but once you sober up, how does it not cross your mind that “huh, I’ve hit about four or five cars this summer, maybe I should call a cab next time”?
