Those of us with an unhealthy fixation on celebrity nonsense may be frighteningly familiar with Amanda Bynes’ recent and quite public Twitter meltdown, in which she’s posted things like this:
And, just earlier today, this:
The whole affair seems to have come to quite a sad head just a couple of hours ago, when Jenny McCarthy, who is somehow now also a Hollywood detective/breaking news journalist, tweeted out that the police were called to Amanda Bynes’ house.
Her proof? This guy.
Jonathan Jaxson is a Hollywood publicist who claims to have represented the Backstreet Boys and Mya, and was previously embroiled in a court case with Kim Kardashian, who denied his claims that she was ever his client, and that her marriage to Kris Humphries was a sham.
Anyway, Jaxson took to Twitter a few hours ago to voice his concerns over Bynes.
Judging from Bynes’ recent tweeting history, I guess we can all agree that professional help (uh, maybe not the NYPD, but still…) is perhaps a useful step for her at the moment.
But there’s something a little fame-whorey about doing this all over your own Twitter account instead of a private phone call, right? Especially if you follow it up by playing the victim.
Sigh, Hollywood. This whole sad story reminds us of a Bret Easton Ellis novel. Get well soon, Amanda please.
