The Amanda Bynes train wreck screeched to a halt in July this year, when the former Nickelodeon star was sent to a psychiatric ward at UCLA for evaluation. A few months down the line and Amanda was allowed to leave the psych ward and was admitted to a Malibu-based rehab centre for further observation. Now, she's ready to go home.

Speaking to People, Amanda's mother's lawyer Tamar Arminak revealed that Amanda has been deemed fit enough to go home for the holidays. A statement from Arminak read, "Amanda and her entire family would like to thank everyone who's contacted them with good thoughts and wishes for Amanda's recovery. Amanda has completed her inpatient rehabilitation and she's feeling better every day."
The 27-year-old was forcibly placed into psychiatric care in July this year following a period of unusual behaviour from the star, which came to the fore when she was found in the drive way of an elderly woman's house, where she was stood by a fire she had started on the concrete surface. This came following a period when Amanda was placed under heavy scrutiny from the media following a series of bizarre tweets, drug-related run-ins with the law and a desire to become the next big thing in rap.

"She's now looking at various colleges with the intention of majoring in fashion design," the statement from Arminak continues. "She's mentioned before she's interested in creating a clothing line. Despite the fact Amanda is no longer in a facility, her outpatient treatment is continuing. She's very happy to reestablish the loving relationship with her family that she once shared."
Arminak also confirmed that, as Amanda continues her recovery, her mother Lynn Bynes will continue to serve as Amanda's conservator, meaning she has full control of Amanda's finances still.
Hopefully this means Amanda is well on her way to returning ot normality
