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!
An insider explained:
This is major!
Amanda Bynes has been on the road to wellness ever since being checked into UCLA Medical Center and diagnosed with Schizophrenia months ago.
And now, it looks like she has made incredible strides because it has finally been determined that she is mentally capable to handle a trial for her DUI case!
Her case was reportedly presented in Mental Health Court this morning where the judge read off her evaluation. And that evaluation stated that she is at last mentally capable of facing the charges, which her lawyer, Rich Hutton, did not disagree with.
However, it is believed that this case will likely end in a plea deal as we can imagine a jury trial would be far too risky.
In regard to her conservatorship status, her mental competency will not change the situation because she is reportedly still not able to care for herself.
Maybe those rumors about her being well enough to head home for the holidays are true!

It's a Christmas miracle!
Amanda Bynes has had a long, difficult road to recovery and still faces a tough journey ahead.
But it seems like for now, she's reached an amazing milestone- she's going home!
According to sources close to Amanda, the What A Girl Wants star's medical and psychological treatment have been fairly successful, enough that doctors now consider her stabile enough to leave the facility!
In fact, they're ordering
Well, this a sign of improvement!
We reported earlier how Amanda Bynes' mom finally broke her silence on Amanda's treatment, and now more developments are coming in surrounding Amanda's recovery, and they're pretty much all positive!
According to a source, Amanda is making some inroads at her rehab facility, The Canyon, and that while her recovery isn't complete, things are looking up:
Oh guuurrrl, that's not a good move.
Miley Cyrus already made quite the cringeworthy dig at Amanda Bynes while she was feuding with Sinead O'Connor, and now she might be taking things a step further.
After slamming her mental health issues on Twitter, Mileybird has now posted an inneresting selfie (above) that feels pretty damn reminiscent of the ones Amanda posted before she got help for her mental health issues.
Of course, the actual tweet posted with it was just about her hair:
Whoa!!! Suddenly they're in a full blown feud!
Earlier today Miley Cyrus tweeted shade at Sinead O'Connor, who recently wrote an open letter offering her unsolicited advice. Miley brought up some of Sinead's old tweets from a time when she was ill and then compared her to Amanda Bynes!
Whether or not the We Can't Stop singer's tweets were light-hearted jokes or mean spirited jabs is unclear, but there's nothing ambiguous about Sinead's reaction: she is FURIOUS!
The Irish songstress vented on Facebook this afternoon, and she was appalled by MileyBird's apparent "mockery" of Sinead's previous mental health issues!
She thinks it's bullying, and she thinks it can be deadly. More than that, she also contacted her lawyers!!!
Here is her entire message:
Whoa. This is beyond catty.
Yesterday Sinead O'Connor published an open letter to Miley Cyrus, loaded with her concerns that the young singer was being pimped and exploited by her team.
And Miley responded by comparing her to Amanda Bynes — a person whose troubles have lead her into psychiatric treatment.
Miley tweeted a screengrab of what appears to have been a Sinead-written Twitter rant from the past, where she speaks of her own mental health concerns:
