Amanda Bynes Will Be Locked Up For A While

So I have some bad news for people who enjoy watching a mentally disabled woman spiral out of control because they think that’s the same sort of “train wreck” as Lindsay Lohan, and good news for anyone who wants to see Amanda Bynes get the help she needs without her parents fucking it up by thinking she’s just being a spoiled brat. TMZ reports:

Amanda Bynes is headed for another conservatorship, but we’re told it almost certainly will not be at the hands of her parents. Rather, we’ve learned Amanda’s doctors are planning to get the type of conservatorship that can keep her confined and medicated for up to 1 year.
Sources familiar with Amanda’s treatment tell TMZ … the plan is to get an LPS Hold — something a judge will grant at the behest of doctors but only if the patient is “gravely disabled as a result of a mental disorder or impairment by chronic alcoholism.”
The LPS Hold allows doctors to confine Amanda — at either the hospital or another secure facility — and administer meds against her will.

And while all of that sounds fucking awful, no one is affected more than Lena Dunham who was apparently ready to hire Amanda Bynes as a writer on Girls. Via Vulture:

I don’t know if I’m the only one who’s been closely following Amanda Bynes’s tweets today. She’s clearly off her medication, the whole situation is really bad … But she did say something kind of similar [to Hannah] which was, “I’m not crazy, I’m actually the one who knows everything that’s happening.” I texted [Jenni Konner] and said, “Maybe I’m nuts, but I think Amanda Bynes is actually kind of a great writer. Do you know what I mean?” She was like, “I don’t know what you mean!”

“Alright, Lena, let’s see what you got. This new writer better be everything she’s cracked up to be.”
“About that. Here’s her first script, but I should probably warn you-“
“Just give it here. *reads* This is nothing but page after page of ‘UGLY PEOPLE SHOULD KEEP THEIR CLOTHES ON’ written in crayon and a doodle of Nicki Minaj lighting a dog on fire.”
“I know.”
“Jesus, Lena, why have you never written us something this good?”
“I already packed up my desk.”
“The whole no-nudity angle? My God. Talk about new and fresh and not you naked.”
“Again, already packed up my desk.” *waddles out the door – artistically! artistically*
