Is it just me, or is anyone else starting to think Oprah picked the wrong troubled young actress to hand a series to? After seeing these pictures of Amanda Bynes at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising Debut Runway Show last night, I think Harpo Productions made a big mistake in following the completely delusional Lindsay Lohan around. There’s obviously no hope there in terms of a success story right now, while Amanda Bynes is a walking breath of fresh air.
I know I’m comparing apples to oranges here, and that a television show probably wouldn’t have been a smart choice for Amanda after her intense, heartbreaking struggles last year. But I’m just so excited to see her looking so happy, healthy, and put-together!

Last night, Amanda and her parents attended the runway show at the fashion school she’s currently attending – apparently it’s an event that’s done each year for the aspiring student designers to formally debut their clothes in front of an audience. I know it’s too early on a Saturday to have any business talking about tugged heartstrings, but look at her mom’s glowing face. It’s like, radiating happiness. If that doesn’t make you want to call your parents and tell them you love them and thank them for always putting up with your shit, then I don’t know what would.
According to an E! News source (so let’s just get out that grain of salt, shall we?):
“She’s a great student who always participated and really cared about her classes. She really fit in and loves her school. If she was offered an acting job anytime soon. She may not take it because she’s so focused on school. Amanda’s really talented at what she does so the picture is the real deal. She’s only just beginning.”
Now you may commence your weekend on this happy note. You’re welcome.
