You know, I really feel for Amanda Bynes. Homegirl went through a lot of shit last year before eventually ending up in rehab and being formally diagnosed with schizophrenia and Bipolar disorder. Treatment ended up being one of the best things that could have happened to her, and now she seems to be evening out and recovering well… which also means facing some of the shit she did while she was out of control and not managing her illness.
One of the things she’s really upset about is realising that she once said that she wanted Drake to murder her vagina. Yeah, that’s pretty cringeworthy, and I can see why she’d be feeling a bit embarrassed.
Sources directly connected with Amanda tell TMZ … she is in the territory of being her old self again. They say the fact that the Drake comment “horrifies her” shows she again has a sense of the difference between right and wrong.
But there’s more. We’re told Amanda has stopped smoking weed, she’s in the process of removing a number of inappropriate tattoos, and she’s kind to people with whom she interacts.
Most impressive … Amanda is now at FIDM — the Fashion Institute of Design Merchandising in Orange County — and she’s become so self-confident she makes presentations to her entire class and freely interacts with her classmates.
I’m so glad she’s doing so much better, and I think it’s probably better that she just doesn’t reflect on the past and instead continues to concentrate on her recovery and the future she has ahead of her. I think it’s in her best interest to stay OUT of Hollywood.
