The last time I wrote about Amanda Bynes, she had been released from her 5150 hold by a hearing officer who really thought it would be a brilliant idea for her to leave the hospital and go out into the wild on her own. Amanda also tried and failed to get control of her money again. Since then, Amanda’s reportedly been living with her hairstylist and she survives on the AMEX gift cards her parents give to her lawyer to give to her. Today, TMZ says that Amanda’s mom and dad, Lynn and Rick Bynes, are completely burnt out and have reached the edge. So they’re handing the keys to the conservatorship over to a professional and are busting out of California.
A source says that Amanda’s parents will ask a judge to transfer the conservatorship to a mental health professional whose job is to deal with situations like this. They’ve also picked out a money manager who will handle their daughter’s money. Since Amanda throws tweets of pure hate at her parents and doesn’t really want to have anything to do with them, they’ve decided that it’s probably a good idea for them to step away and let a pro handle it. They hope that if they’re not in control, she’ll start talking to them again and they can have a relationship. They’re originally from Texas and their eldest daughter lives there, so they’re moving out of L.A. and going back to Texas Texas Texas, going back to Texas. When I started that sentence, I had no idea it would end like that, but sometimes the spirit of LL Cool J takes over your fingers and you have to go with it.
During the past few days, Amanda has been tweeting about how pissed off she is at her mom and dad, because all of her clothes are at their house and they won’t give her money to buy new shit. She says she’s been taking her meds and seeing her psychologist regularly, so she’s fine.
I’m no expert (I can say that about most things except “being lazy” and “watching shitty TV”), so I don’t know if this is the right move or not. But it sounds like it. It seems like Amanda’s ears close every time her parents speak and she’s not even trying to listen to their asses. Maybe a professional can convince her to go back into the hospital for more than a minute before she tries to once again blow up the driveway of a mushroom kingdom. I was going to say that Lynn and Rick should hire Daddy Spears as their daughter’s conservator, but Amanda’s net worth is ONLY $5 million, so they can’t afford his monthly fee. Velveeta cheese and grits cost.
