Amanda Bynes Turns 30, Is “Doing Great”

I’ve always said the best thing that could happen to Amanda Bynes is that she left showbiz altogether and faded into obscurity. Fame exacerbated her very serious mental health issues and nearly killed her, so homegirl had to take a serious step back so that she’d actually have a chance of living a somewhat normal life again. That seems to have (finally) happened, and Amanda, who’s celebrating her 30th birthday on April 3, is “doing great.”

“She is doing great. She is happy and healthy and excited about the future,” Bynes family attorney Tamar Arminak tells PEOPLE. Also, she’s apparently very serious about the classes she’s taking at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in LA, is working on a bunch of designs, and seriously hopes to launch her own line soon.

I’m all for people following their dreams, but wouldn’t that just put her back in the spotlight and cause a recurrence of all the issues she’s had before? Can’t she have dreams of being, like, I don’t know, a real estate agent or something? Come on, girl, we’re rooting for you!

  • Its possible the design classes work as a type of art therapy for her — so maybe going into that and eventually back into the spotlight, she’ll be able to handle it…?
