Amanda Bynes has somehow managed to avoid dealing with her many car issues — until now (apparently court proceedings are slow as hell). She’s pleading no contest to driving on a suspended license. With all the super interesting things she’s doing on Twitter, it’s easy to forget that when it comes to driving, she’s as bad as Lohan.
Amanda will be placed on 3 years probation, which requires her to obey all laws — and given her current state that may be a challenge. She was also warned NOT to drive without a valid license and insurance. She also must pay a $300 fine.
As we reported, the charges were filed against the actress in September after she was pulled over in Burbank … and cops discovered her license was suspended. Police ticketed her and impounded her car.
Amanda’s license had been suspended a couple weeks earlier because of two hit-and-run charges that were filed against her.
The irony … those hit-and-run charges were later thrown out by a judge, after Amanda reached financial settlements with the victims.
As for her other legal problems, she’s still got that DUI case going on. Which is nice.
Enjoy this beautiful fan art that Bynes retweeted.

Amanda Bynes is serious about designing a clothing line, and In Touch was serious enough to interview her about it. It’s going to be very chic and elegant as she is inspired by Justin Bieber‘s sense of style and fashion choices. Just picture it: a whole line of saggy pants, caps meant to be worn backwards, the worst of the 1980′s, creepy knock-off “Channel” ski masks, and of course, absolutely no shirts (of which Miss Amanda is also not a fan of). And this:
Yes, how could one not be positively inspired by this master of fashion?
Oh and she’s also inspired by the Olsen twins, which is such a f-cking copout answer. Here’s more stupid crap she told In Touch about her “upcoming” line.
I love Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s clothing line, Elizabeth and James, and I love how Justin Bieber dresses. My line will be a mixture of sick styles, and it’s going to be for everybody. … I’ll design clothes because I want to, not because I need the money.
Ms. Bynes recently broke the 1 million mark on Twitter. In celebration of this momentous event, here’s some fun Amanda Bynes trivia.
– Amanda Bynes is 27.
– Amanda Bynes eats tacos.
– Amanda Bynes once had her own clothing line called Dear, with Steve & Barry’s, until Steve & Barry’s went bankrupt.
– Amanda Bynes was on the February cover of Maxim magazine in 2010.
– Amanda Bynes is Jewish.

Amanda, f-ck, we get it. You don’t want old photos of yourself posted online. You said it because you thought you looked fat in the photos they chose and that because you have an eating disorder, it’s very hard for you to see them use these photos. Like you should have any say in what a magazine or website does, but media outlets are actually humoring you and using your approved photos. But now you’re also saying there’s another reason you don’t want anyone to post old photos, and that reason is your nose.
Intouch used a photo from years ago on their cover and I hate it! The reason I’ve asked all magazines and blogs to stop using old photos of me is I don’t look like that anymore! I had a nose job to remove skin that was like a webbing in between my eyes. I wasn’t going to tell anyone, but I look so much prettier in my new photos that I don’t want old photos used anymore! I’m so sick of magazines and blogs using old photos! When will they stop? I will never look like that again! Having surgery was the most amazing thing for my confidence!
Amanda Bynes, riddle me this: why do you call people ugly? Why is that your go-to attack? You’ve had your own self esteem issues with your appearance, and you’re still struggling with your body issues, so why would you call someone ugly? I don’t get it. I don’t get a lot of things about what you’re doing.

Amanda Bynes decided to reconnect with her parents, much to everyones’ relief. Unlike Jenny McCarthy’s “help” attempt, Bynes’ parents may actually be able to help her out of whatever it is she’s going through. If you haven’t been aware, Amanda Bynes has been acting erratic as all hell but says that she is not insane.
“Amanda reconnected with her parents this week and it was a really positive talk on both ends,” a source close to the embattled actress told Radar.
“Her parents are good people who are genuinely concerned for her. And Amanda misses them, so she finally called them up.”
According to the insider, the call went so well that a reunion might soon be in store for the Bynes family.
“The last place Amanda wants to be is Los Angeles. She likes New York and doesn’t want to leave,” the insider revealed.
“But Amanda’s parents really want to see her so they’re thinking of flying out to New York as early as next week.”
As RadarOnline.com exclusively reported two weeks ago, Amanda’s heartbroken family believed her bizarre behavior was a “cry for help,” but felt they were “powerless to do anything” because she refused their help.
But now, it seems there’s hope for Amanda’s parents Lynn and Rick to check in with their daughter and gauge how out of control she really is.
“Amanda is totally acting odd, but she’s not crazy at all like people are making her out to be,” the source told Radar.
“She’s just going through a hard time in her life and maybe not coping with it like she should be.”
If you were to take Bynes out of the whole thing and just look at what she’s doing objectively, she wouldn’t seem different than millions of other young women on Twitter. I guess it’s seeing what a drastic change there is from the Nickelodeon star we all remember that is worrying people. Here’s an interview Bynes did in 2007 that is shocking in how well spoken and level headed she was.

Listen, we all know by now that some synapses are misfiring in Amanda Bynes’ brain and things are not going well. She’s progressively stripping on social media, she’s fighting with Jenny McCarthy (LOL), she’s in a love/hate imaginary non-relationship with Drake… These are trying times. But hey, don’t you worry your pretty little heads. Turns out, Amanda’s not crazy, she just wants all the ugly people to stop talking – a totally rational and definitely not drug-induced request!
From In Touch Weekly:
“I have no clue [why people say I’m insane]. Every time I’ve heard it, it came from an ugly person’s mouth, so I don’t care,” the actress — who rocks cheek piercings and a tangle of blond hair extensions— exclusively tells In Touch, on newsstands now. “The only ones lying about me having a mental illness are people I don’t talk to.”
Amanda, who often stays up all night and tweets around the clock, says she has the support of unnamed friends. “I only have hot friends,” she says. “They have my back until I die.”
She also knocks down any speculation of issues with addiction: “I don’t drink. I’m allergic to alcohol,” Amanda tells In Touch. And though photos surfaced of Amanda with what looked to be a joint, the star insists she doesn’t smoke pot— only tobacco.
Oh man. This interview makes my life. Unfortunately, it’s undoubtedly a very real cry for help and she’s not going to get any better anytime soon without any intervention. Unfortunately, if her family isn’t in contact with her (who knows how true that is), chances of that happening are probably slim to none. Who is she hanging out with? Why is no one saying anything? It’s all so bizarre.

I’ve known Jenny McCarthy is bonkers since she started telling parents not to vaccinate their kids a few years back, but last night she took shit to a whole new level of bonkers as she took to Twitter to claim that police had swarmed Amanda Bynes‘ apartment in New York – news that she got from a “publicist” who’s apparently really a realtor (?) and a story that literally no one else confirmed and/or reported. This came just a few hours after Amanda took her hiker a few more notches up Crazy Mountain and posted two new selfies sans bra (nips covered, natch).
Here’s how it went down on Jenny’s Twitter:
She’ll probably remove all that shit later, but you know I ‘ve got screencaps on my desktop, girl.
Anyway, this story literally makes zero sense. First of all, what does any of this have to do with Jenny McCarthy? Second of all, why in the hell would this publicist/realtor or whoever the hell he is have this “info” that not even TMZ has confirmed (and they are on top of their shit)? Third of all, just why? Why?
So, were the police at Amanda’s place last night? Probably not. And if they were, it was probably a prank or some asshole “PR” person phoning them because they “want to help” (ie spread bullshit stories like this).
UPDATE!! Amanda has responded to Jenny on Twitter in one of the most hilarious mini-rants ever:
@jennymccarthy you’re ugly! Police weren’t at my house old lady! Shut the fuck up!
— Amanda Bynes (@AmandaBynes) May 2, 2013
@jennymccarthy I need help? What are u talking about? Aren’t u 50 years old? I’m 27, u look 80 compared to me! Why are you talking about me?
— Amanda Bynes (@AmandaBynes) May 2, 2013
UPDATE UPDATE!: Somehow, Amanda and Jenny have made up?
@jennymccarthy thanks! I’m sorry I offended you! You’re beautiful! I was lying! I’ll delete our tweets!
— Amanda Bynes (@AmandaBynes) May 2, 2013
Oh, dear. I love that Amanda’s always calling people “ugly” and that she called Jenny an old lady! God, this girl needs help (but I sorta love it). Anyway, for getting to the end of this post, here’s a treat: (more…)
