Amanda Bynes' Revelation About Her Crazy Behavior Will Have Us All Sighing With Relief

OMG 8

Amanda BynesI know we've all been worried about Amanda Bynes' strange behavior, but apparently we've all been worrying for nothing. Because Amanda apparently told a good friend of hers -- who helpfully shared her text messages with the world -- that she's been faking all along. That there's really nothing wrong with her. According to texts between Jonathan Jaxon and Amanda, which he then posted to Twitter, Amanda has just been trying to get publicity for a new movie, garner more Twitter followers, and god only knows what else.

According to a picture of a text exchange that Jaxon posted, Amanda wrote:

All this has been an act and you know it! I am an actress and know what I am doing.

When he questions her about drug usage and whether there is anything mentally wrong with her, she replies:

I got to 2 million followers and now everyone wants me. I am smart and not stupid. Everyone mentions my name. The world loves me!

Hmm. I'm not so sure Amanda understands the difference between everyone mentioning your name and everyone loving you. There really is a huge diff.

She also promises that her friend should "just wait the world will see!" I'm pretty nervous about what we'll see, aren't you?

Reportedly, it was Jonathan who called police the night Amanda was arrested for throwing a bong out her apartment window, something she denies. It's clear Jonathan cares about her but I'm not so sure what posting their text exchange did for her. But kids these days have a different set of values when it comes to oversharing. Amanda -- who routinely lobs insults to various celebrities on Twitter -- probably didn't mind. I don't think privacy is any kind of concern of hers anymore.

As for Amanda "acting out" a mental illness in order to get Twitter followers and boost her career -- that's just the kind of grandiose and nonsensical thinking that a mentally ill person would use.

Brava, Amanda! You fooled us all, girl! Sigh. So glad that wasn't real.

Do you think Amanda is really faking?

There's a problem with this mentality - Charlie Sheen did the same thing and it didn't really work for him, either. People now just think he's crazy and he gets crap roles like Scary Movie 5. If you want attention, do good things. Go on Craig Ferguson and be hilariously funny and with-it. Make Funny or Die videos that are releveant and sharp. Go talk to Neil Patrick Harris and find out what he's been doing to keep us interested. But one you go down the "Bad attention is still attention" road, you find there's no off-ramp and people who rubbernecked at the accident that is your life aren't so interested in it when you go "Just kidding! I'm in a movie! Come watch!"

Even those texts show something isn't right upstairs....

Someone who feels the need to constantly say "I'm not crazy!" Needs help. I'm a psychiatric nurse. I see it every day. Clearly she needs help.

Grandiose, manic thinking. Bipolar. She's still out of touch with reality. People aren't following because they "love her," it's because they can't look away from the train wreck. I was thinking schizophrenia, but she sounds bipolar here.

You're completely stupid if you believe this text exchange is real lol. Just someone else trying to get their 15 min of fame, which doesn't take much these days.

Isn't this the same guy that claimed he worked for Kim Z and is writing a tell all? Didn't he also claim to work for Kim K? I swear I've seen his name attached to like 5 stories about celebs/ reality stars. I don't believe anything from him. Sounds like some loser trying to get famous!

Histrionic personalitt disorder. She's gone beyond the point of just trying to stay relevant to doing anything it takes to get her name in headlines. Who in their right mind wants people to think they're crzy?! Or worse, on drugs? At least you can't help crAzy.

Both Amanda and Charlie were and are on drugs...the end.
