This Amanda Bynes story just keeps getting weirder and weirder. C’mon, you already know that your life is pretty strange when Lindsay Lohan tweet disses you, right? Maybe she shouldn’t waste her energy getting (allegedly) angry with Lindsay and should instead focus on staying out of the news for sometime. Maybe that would shut up her Uncle Ron who has been busy telling anyone who will listen that Amanda needs to, “stop drinking and driving. She needs help.” Well done, Ron. It’s not like everyone doesn’t know that already! What we’re most concerned with right now though, is all this talk of her supposed mental instability and of a conservatorship that her family now wants because of her increasingly strange behaviour. TMZ says that Amanda is denying all of this, saying that the conservator-family business is all a rumor, and that she doesn’t have a substance abuse problem either. That’s a nod to those dodgy photographs of her smoking a pipe. But then again, she’s also blithely dismissing her hit-and-run, drinking-and-driving cases.
We’re wondering how Amanda’s going to spin this latest story? She was shopping at Kin, a store in West Hollywood yesterday. Pretty normal stuff, really. What isn’t normal is that she locked herself into one’s of the fitting rooms in the store for a whole hour and 45 minutes. You heard correctly. The store’s staff ended up freaking out because they kept hearing “banging noises” coming from inside the room at regular intervals. They had to make a call to one of the other employees, who we’re guessing is a supervisor of some sort, to help out with the situation. One of the staff members has allegedly said, “I was so worried about her. I didn’t know what she was doing in [the dressing room]. I didn’t know if she was overdosing, or doing drugs or what.” When the employee tried to get her out, Amanda apparently replied with, “I need more time.” An hour and 45 minutes more time? What the hell was she even doing in there? When she finally emerged around 5.30 in the evening, she bought stilettos, sunglasses and some more items but didn’t ring in the swimsuit top she had on underneath her dress. When the store inquired about it as she was about to head off, she said she forgot and paid up. The photographs above are of her leaving the store, and trying to cover her face while getting into a cab. So, any guesses about what she was up to? We can’t even begin to start!
