The Amanda Show continues -- the disturbing, real-life one. Amanda Bynes has declared once again, via Twitter, that she is "not crazy." Her lawyer has declared the actress "fine," saying reports about her wacky behavior are "exaggerated." Okay then. Let's take a look at what totally normal things she's done in the past 48 hours.
On Thursday, Amanda went on a solo trip to Buffalo, New York. Was she there to visit family, or maybe try the wings? Nope -- she jumped on trampolines. The actress was seen at the indoor trampoline park SkyZone, where she reportedly attended a workout class, then bounced around by herself for an hour. Normal...ish?
Here's where things actually get weird. Bynes was photographed jumping on the trampolines in a brown wig, but when TMZ ran the pictures, she claimed it was somebody else.
"THAT'S NOT ME! I've never been to SkyZone! That looks nothing like me!... I don't own a brown wig!" Bynes swore on Twitter.
Not only was Amanda photographed and seen by multiple witnesses, but she signed a waiver using her middle and last name and date of birth. Furthermore, she's been photographed before in a brown wig.
Her tweets have since been deleted, but TMZ also obtained this video of Amanda denying that she was in Buffalo, while she was in Buffalo.
Even after all this, Amanda went on an expletive-laden tirade against blogger Perez Hilton, accusing him of staging the trampoline photos.
"@perezhilton Stop living! Kill yourself!" Bynes wrote on Twitter. "I look sooooo much better than the girl you hired to look like an awful cheeky version of me!"
Also, she took a moment out of her busy trampoline-jumping, wig-modeling schedule to bash Lance Bass for saying he wanted to help her.
"No one is able to get to her," Bass said in a radio interview on Wednesday. "I'm actually really scared for her, and I hope someone is able to get to her to give her the help she needs."
In response, Amanda sent these gracious tweets:
I ignored Lance Bass on twitter and now he is saying I have a mental illness. Sorry you're an ugly ex boy band member w/ no talent or career— Amanda Bynes (@AmandaBynes) May 30, 2013
I haven't spoken to Lance Bass in 11 years. To say I have a mental illness out of nowhere makes me lash out! You're making me crazy!— Amanda Bynes (@AmandaBynes) May 30, 2013
Right. Lance Bass is making her crazy. Should we point out that Amanda and Lance made a movie together in 2005, meaning she's definitely spoken to him in the last 11 years? Should we link to these photos of them hanging out together nine years ago? Or should we not even bother?
Bynes also used Twitter to slam swimsuit model Chrissy Teigen, who advised Amanda's fans to "Support people with mental illness, yes. But don't condone/enable scary and poor behavior."
"@chrissyteigen Ur not a pretty model compared to me. I signed to Ford models @ age 13," Amanda wrote on Wednesday. "I don't look up to u beauty wise. I'm far prettier than u! I'm offended that you're saying I have a mental illness when I show no sign of it, but thankfully not one man that wants me wants you and you are an old ugly model compared to me! You look 45!" (And it goes on. And on. And on.)
Let's talk about that "mental illness" thing for a minute. Everyone's assuming that Bynes has some psychiatric issues, based on her inexplicable behavior over the past few months. When she was arrested last Thursday, Bynes was reportedly checked into a psychiatric hospital and has been insisting that she got a clean bill of health. What actually happened, per TMZ, is that she refused to undergo psychiatric testing. And because the authorities don't consider her a danger to herself and others, Bynes was not put on "psychiatric hold."
Reportedly, Amanda's parents would like an evaluation, which would give them leverage to set up a Britney Spears-type conservatorship. Which seems like a good idea to everyone but Amanda.
At least she's not headed to jail. The police failed to produce evidence of Amanda's drug paraphernalia, including that bong she supposedly through out the window. However, the NYPD also determined that Amanda lied about being sexually assaulted by a police officer. She's not out of hot water yet.
