So happy for Amanda Bynes!
The family’s lawyer Tamar Arminak sat down with Access on Friday (above) to give the most high-level recent insight on Amanda’s current state and recovery work in the mental health facility that we’ve ever gotten — and it sounds like things are going along about as well as the Bynes family had been hoping!
It’s been nearly two months since the former child star checked herself into an El Lay mental health facility after what’s being termed as a “stress-induced relapse” in the middle of her planned Hollywood comeback. But according to Arminak, Amanda is “doing great” and really digging deep in her treatment — with some light at the end of the tunnel.
Back On Track…
As you can hear for yourself in the interview (above), Arminak got real about Amanda’s mental health, saying:
“Well, I can tell you she’s doing remarkably well, under the circumstances. This time around, she realized herself, after the Paper Magazine interview spread, that she really wasn’t feeling like herself, all of the sudden. She wanted to address it right away before going back into show business and exploring show business again. It was her decision and her choice to address the situation, seek treatment, which, I think, is an incredibly mature way to handle this type of thing. I think we’re proud of her, her parents, I can certainly say are proud of her. Her family, they’re on amazing terms, great terms, and looking forward to her success.”
Wow! It’s absolutely mature on Bynes’ part to realize all that — so good to hear!
As for Bynes’ day-to-day routine at the facility, it sounds like she’s having quite a healthy, wholesome time focusing on her well-being while also taking time to exercise, practice yoga, and do some other things for herself, too.
…And Back To School!
Interestingly, Arminak revealed that Bynes is still studying and working with the Fashion Institute of Design and Manufacturing (FIDM), a very well known and high-quality fashion school in downtown Los Angeles. It sounds like FIDM has come along at a very, very important time for Amanda, as the lawyer revealed in this interview (below):
“She’s been so amazed by FIDM because, as a school, they’ve been so supportive of her this entire time. She can’t wait to get back to the FIDM campus, be creative again, and staff at FIDM have reached out, they’ve been in constant contact and they can’t wait for her return. … And she really looks forward to her fashion line coming out. We saw a glimpse of her style during the Paper Magazine shoot and she really has this great aesthetic for materials and what works on a person, coloring and body shape and all that stuff. I think it’s gonna be a great fashion line.”
It seriously sounds like things are going very well for Bynes — here’s hoping she continues to get the treatment she needs, and can eventually return to her life in El Lay and her comeback in the entertainment industry as a healthier, more fulfilled person!
Sending our best!!!
