This year (2012) has been pretty rough for Amanda Bynes and the future honestly is looking bleak.
If you’ve been following her and her hit and run, DUI, drug/alcohol use and shenanigans, you might have thought to yourself “this crazy bitch needs help”, but in reality, she might actually need help; like mental help, all joking aside.
Sources close (not friends, but acquaintances) to the retired 26-year-old actress have spoken to TMZ about some disturbing behavior she has been exhibiting lately. Apparently, these sources range from people that are members of the gym she belongs to in West Hollywood (Equinox), and also some neighbors of hers.
A source tells the gossip site that Bynes showed up to the gym last week looking “dazed” and was seen not only talking to herself, but answering herself back. (Side note: my mom always used to tell me it was okay to talk to yourself, but once you start answering back, that’s trouble.)
Another gym source says that while Bynes was using the elliptical machine, she would all-of-a-sudden stop and begin “laughing hysterically for no reason”, and would do this continually throughout her workout. The same person says that over the last few months, her condition has gotten worse.
Even Bynes’ neighbors are saying they’ve seen odd behavior. One reveals that he saw her (many times) engaging in long conversations with inanimate objects, while another admits that even though they’ve seen her display this behavior, they haven’t mentioned it to any of her friends or relatives because they didn’t want to get involved.
Wow, this is getting weirder and weirder. If it’s not drugs (meth?), than it definitely sounds like Bynes is in need of a psychiatrist. Maybe it’s time for her parents/friends to stage some sort of intervention?
Update: TMZ just announced that Bynes was pulled over again! This time her car was impounded. Sunday, around 9 a.m., in Burbank, CA, police ran her license and discovered it was suspended. She was reportedly issued a misdemeanor ticket.
