Guess who’s heading home for Christmas? Our girl Amanda Bynes.
The former child star is expected to be released from her mental institution/rehab hold in Malibu, California.
Amanda was released from the UCLA psych ward and went to the rehab facility because the psych ward was freaking her out and preventing her from improving.
Doctors will release Amanda to her mom, who will then take her to the family house and provide supervision. The move will take place sometime next month.
TMZ exclusively reports that the medicine and treatment appear to be working, but caregivers are concerned Amanda’s going stir crazy. She’s not allowed to go outside the facility because the paparazzi have been parked out there trying to get pictures.
If you don’t recall, Amanda went through a bit of an episode this year and was detained after setting a fire in a random woman’s driveway. She was subsequently hospitalized and put on medication to treat schizophrenia. Amanda’s parents have been with her every step of the way, making sure she gets the help that she needs.
Hopefully, their little girl will be home soon.
