Many stars, especially ones who started as children, go down the wrong path and make big mistakes, but not many make recoveries and turn their lives around, like Amanda Bynes is doing.
Bynes, an actress who got her start on the Nickelodeon show “All That” in 1996, had lost her way for a while.
According to Contactmusic.com, “Amanda’s mental health appeared to spiral when she began posting abusive tweets via Twitter, insulting random celebrities for no apparent reason…A petition was launched against Bynes by the users of a New York dog walking park to have the star banned for not clearing her dog’s mess, inciting dog fights and barking at dogs…The final straw came when she created a small fire in a stranger’s driveway using a canister of gasoline and reportedly also inadvertently doused herself and her dog with the fuel.”
Bynes was hospitalized and treated for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. She is now in the care of her mother after being released from the Malibu Clinic. Bynes is now looking to go back to school for fashion and is hoping to maybe release her own clothing line.
