I have tried to keep Amanda Bynes out of The Word because she's obviously mentally unstable and her highjinks are more sad and disturbing than amusing. However, this item caught my eye: The former actress is now being hospitalized for setting a fire in the driveway of a stranger's home in Thousand Oaks, Calif. The cops investigated the former child-star-turned-Gremlin and determined she needed to be hospitalized on a 5150 hold which is an involuntary hospitalization for mental evaluation which lasts 72 hours. So this is good news. Maybe she will now get the help she needs?
This just caps off increasingly bizarre actions by the star (which is saying a lot). Radar Online says she also has reportedly jeopardized the last important relationship she has left by allegedly stealing from her pot dealer, according to Radar Online. "Amanda's dealer used her bathroom while he was there and she jacked his weed," a sources says of the troubled NYC-based actress. "He didn't realize at first because he's a delivery weed service, but when he went in his bag he saw his stash was missing. She even replaced it with empty weed jars." As a result, the dealer has reportedly dropped Bynes as a client. "He won't go to her anymore," the source says.
