Shortly after Amanda Bynes‘ arrest, she started attacking high-profile targets on Twitter like Rihanna and Chrissy Teigen which seemed less like the rantings of a crazy person and more like the action of a troll who knew which celebrities to target for the most publicity. And now comes word that Amanda Bynes’ is only slightly disturbed and doing most of this for attention. FOX411 reports:
“Amanda is actually very coherent and very together, she can easily chat about ‘normal’ things,” a source told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column. “She doesn’t have a drug problem; we won’t be seeing her OD. She knows there are others issues that she is willing to start addressing.”
“Having to take a mug shot really scared her straight. You can’t take mug shots or go to jail with a wig, and she didn’t like not being in control,” explained the source. “Part of this whole thing has been an act, part of it a narcissistic plea for attention.”
“Don’t be surprised if Amanda checks into a rehab facility on the down-low sometime soon to deal with her anxiety and anger issues. She hasn’t quite hit that point yet, but she is open to accepting some help.”
And before I get into this, my favorite part:
One court expert said the ex-Nickelodeon sensation at least knew enough to turn the “normal” knob in court.
“With the exception of wearing a wig to court, Amanda behaved very well in front of the judges,” observed legal crisis communications expert, Wendy Feldman of CustodialCoaching.com. “She also behaved sensibly following the arrest, as there were no further charges or allegations made against her, like we saw in the case of Reese Witherspoon not cooperating with a police officer during her husband’s recent arrest.”
See? Amanda Bynes didn’t act like Reese Witherspoon. That’s how you know she’s not crazy.
But seriously, while it could be possible that Amanda Bynes is trolling us all, at the end of the day, she’s still getting arrested for drugs and/or repeatedly plowing her car into other cars most likely while on drugs. Not to mention, she mangled her face and hair to look like Blac Chyna. These are things happening in reality. Which, okay, maybe she’s method, but despite “legal expert” Wendy Feldman just waving it off, Amanda Bynes still walked into court of law looking like goddamn E.T. in a wig. But who knows? The important thing is at least we don’t live in a country where someone like the person below is legally unable to be diagnosed with a mental disorder allowing to her have unfettered access to firearms. That’s what helps me sleep at night.
