Amanda Bynes was the best teen celebrity and we want her back.
Amanda Bynes might be struggling right now, but if Britney Spears can pull through it, then we think Amanda has a fighting chance to get the help she needs.
In case you're lost, it all started in late September when Amanda got pulled over in Sherman Oaks, California for a DUI. She was released and immediately hopped on a flight to New York. When she got there, she started acting very weird, like she did back when she was tweeting about Drake and starting fires in driveways.
This time, she allegedly attempted to steal from Barneys (pulling a Winona Ryder), she claimed that she was engaged to a 19 year old bait store employee, and finally went on a Twitter rant claiming that her father sexually abused her — but recanted her story later, saying that the microchip in her brain was forcing her to do all of that. So on Oct. 10, she was brought in on a 5150 hold. It was extended for two weeks, and then 30 days, but suddenly cut short when a hearing officer said that they were unable to force her to stay at the hospital.
Although her mother has conservatorship (meaning she handles all her finances and medical decisions), Amanda is back on Twitter and saying ridiculous things. We would like to remind you of the old Amanda though. The adorable one that made awesome movies. We miss her, and hope that she gets the help she needs and comes back soon, because she was the sh*t.
1. Because She's The Man.
There is literally nothing better than She's the Man. It was Channing Tatum's first star moment, and people who claim they don’t like that movie are straight up liars.
2. She was ….All That.
I know, cheesy, but "Ask Ashley" was one of the best sketches All That had to offer. "That's me!"
3. And then had her own show!
Remember The Amanda Show? Yeah, Kenan and Kel went on to get a show too, but she was the real star.
4. You just wanted to be her.
She was adorable and hilarious, and if you were a '90s kid you either wanted to date her or be her.
5. Nothing can replace the moment she found her dad...
… And danced with him to "Because You Loved Me" in What a Girl Wants.
6. She was trying so hard to fit in…
… When she was born to stand out. Also, Amanda brought Oliver James into our lives for that one year we were obsessed with him.
7. There's only one Snow White!
Amanda Bynes is the only Snow White (er, or Sydney White) that even matters. Go home Lily Collins and Kristen Stewart.
8. You know you still watch WILAY.
You never change the channel when What I Like About You is on. Still waiting on Netflix for the series.
9. Because she dated Taran Killam …
… who is now married to Robin Scherbatsky IRL and became an SNL staple. Amanda Bynes had Taran Killam first, you guys!
10. She was a fashion icon.
You know that fad of ponytails with big chunks of hair around your face was created by her. And she had her own fashion line that was super cute and afforable!
11. That time she was in a Buncha Crunch commercial.
Amanda Bynes ate Buncha Crunch like a pro.
12. Best religious girl ever!
Amanda Bynes and Emma Stone together in Easy A was a comedic dream come true.
13. She rocked Hairspray.
Penny Pingleton as portrayed by Amanda Bynes was perfection.
14. Did we mention She's the Man?
Do you like cheese? Why yes, I do. My favorite's Gouda.
15. She's in a Lifetime movie!
It's called Living Proof and if you haven't seen it, you're already googling how you can see it.
16. Lets not forget that time she was Lovewrecked.
She got trapped on an island with Chris Carmack in the critically acclaimed, Lance Bass produced, ABC Family movie, Lovewrecked.
17. Basically she was the best.
And we need to remember that.
18. And when she gets better ...
... We will be here waiting patiently for the next Shakespeare remake to debut on Lifetime.
Because we will always love Amanda Bynes.
