Well look who decided to up their headlines game and get a DUI last night — our favorite “didn’t you retire and then un-retire” actress Amanda Bynes. SheÂ seems to be making a lot of questionable decisionsÂ lately. One was a sideswiping a cop car and the other ways dying her hair an ashy pink.
Our reliable jailhouse reporters from TMZ say:
Law enforcement sources tell us Bynes was attempting to pass a cop car … when she sideswiped the vehicle. She was pulled over and cops determined she was not fit to be behind the wheel.Â We’re told the 26-year-old actress was busted at 3 AM … she’s still behind bars.
And this is after an incident last week where according to the very same TMZ article:
A week before that,Â Amanda bolted from a copÂ while he was writing her aÂ ticket. She was pulled over for talking on aÂ cell phone, and while the cop was writing her up … she drove away. Amanda later swung by the police station and signed theÂ ticket. So far, she hasn’t faced additional charges.
Clap. Clap. Clap.
This is just the excitement Amanda Bynes needs to jump-start her career and get back on her game. Assuming her game includes 2-5 years of starring on D-list reality shows on Vh1. If she plays her cards right, WEÂ or even OWN might pick her up for a comeback-style reality show.
Just kidding, OWN won’t be around by then. But WEÂ is an actual possibility, I mean they’re all over Shannen Doherty right now soÂ anythingÂ can happen if you keep your scandals number at the right place.
The keyword now is right place. Too few scandals and no one’s impressed. Too many scandals and you’re just another Lindsay LohanÂ posing forÂ Playboy. Two driving scandals in one week might be pushing it. It’s important to go for variety. A DUI here, a nude photo leak there, an illegitimate sister over there.
But this is Amanda Bynes’ first real attempt at this kind of celebrity career so I’ll give her a break. As long as she promises that her next scandal won’tÂ involveÂ her being behind the wheel.
