Amanda Bynes will have you know that she is "doing amazing," thank you very much. The apparently-troubled 26-year-old insists, in a new interview with People, that she doesn't drink and drive. "It is all false," says Bynes, who has had numerous vehicular scrapes lately and is reportedly declining mentally. According to Bynes, however, she's retired from acting and is perfectly happy launching a fashion line and moving to New York. (She also thinks it's perfect karma that Lindsay Lohan got arrested right after snarkily tweeting about her.) But her words say one thing, and her actions say quite another, according to the chatter:
- She looked like "a mess" at a Hollywood gym this week, taking her shirt off during a spin class to reveal not a sports bra but "a tiny, black, strapless push-up bra," a source tells People. She then spent 10 minutes doing her make-up, adjusting her bra, and fixing her hair before putting her shirt back on and leaving. In TMZ's version of the story, Bynes actually got kicked out of the class by the irate instructor.
- Also this week, Bynes went shopping in Hollywood and locked herself in a dressing room at a boutique for almost two hours, TMZ reports. When asked by concerned clerks to come out, she said, "I need more time," and banging sounds were heard coming from the room every 10 minutes. When Bynes finally emerged, she bought a few things, and almost left the store without paying for a bathing suit top she was still wearing under her dress.
- Radar reports that Bynes' parents haven't heard from her in months, and are worried. But sources say they haven't moved from Texas to California to help their daughter, as has been reported.
Bynes was in court yesterday, and the judge warned that if she breaks any more road laws, she'll impose bail. Click to read about why we all should have seen this meltdown coming
