She may not think so, but it might actually be a good day to be Amanda Bynes. She's finally going to get the help she so desperately needs
As we reported earlier today, after reviewing the matter at hand, a judge granted doctors an emergency conservatorship which extends the psychiatric hold for another 30 days, as she has been deemed "gravely disabled". Now, the judge overseeing Amanda's parents plea for a conservatorship has just granted their request.
It's fairly clear that the decision was made to grant the temporary conservatorship after doctors at the psychiatric hospital got a 1-month extension on her psych hold, which kept Amanda from appearing in court today to defend herself. Still, her lawyers were present, and pleaded despearted in opposition of the conservatorship, believing it's not necessary.
But in the end, her parents came out victorious, with the temporary conservatorship lasting until Sept. 30. At that time the judge will hold a formal hearing on whether to make it permanent. In that time, the judge made it clear that although they have the ability to manage her finances, her folks are not to make any significant deals without consulting with Amanda's lawyer.
And that, as they say, is that.
Here's hoping her parents do right by her and continue to get her the help she needs. She's a girl worth fighting for, a talent we should get the chance to enjoy again.
Take care of yourself, Mandy! We truly mean that.
