We genuinely love hearing positive info on the Amanda Bynes front, but we're so not sure about the latest news for the Hairspray actress!
She's been on the steady path to wellness ever since checking into UCLA Medical Center and getting diagnosed with Schizophrenia months ago—and was recently deemed mentally capable to stand trial in her DUI case!
While her parents, Rick and Lynn Bynes, have been actively involved in the star's recovery, new reports are saying Amanda has decided not to live with them after her rehab stint is up!
"Amanda will not be living with her parents, and the next step for her will be to have a sober companion or coach. She’s not leaving the facility on her own — she’ll still have someone with her."
Even though she won’t be staying with them, her parents will allegedly guide Bynzie with trained professionals, in hopes for the most normal situation as possible:
“The goal is to help her transition into society properly. It’s a small step, but an incredibly important one. She now understands that she needs to take her medicine daily. She has her good days and bad days like everyone else, but she wants to move forward with her life — and she is. She’s very stable.”
Amanda is currently staying at Bridges to Recovery, but is reportedly headed home for the holidays before finishing up her stay in full!
We wish the best for Amanda, and are so happy she's getting the right help!
