Sounds like getting out of the limelight is exactly what Amanda Bynes needed
After laying low for a good solid six months, Amanda Bynes has resurfaced to give a crucial update on her life, and — wait for it — it seems like she may be back to her old self, the bubbly Bynes we all knew and loved on shows like What I Like About You and The Amanda Show.
Bynes hopped on Twitter Wednesday to give a shout out to her followers and say that she's been super busy with her studies — and loving every minute of it.
And that's not all. Now that Bynes has put her health and education first, she seems intent on regaining control of her public image as well — starting with all the pesky social media impostors who have been trying to add fuel to the media fire since she hit on hard times in 2014.
Bynes says that her official Twitter account — the one with the official blue check mark — is the only form of social media she uses and begged fans to ignore all others.
"This is me! The verified, real, authentic and actual Amanda Bynes," she tweeted. "Accept no substitutes!"
We can only imagine Bynes is referencing the Twitter handle @PersianLA27, which has posed as a Bynes alter ego for several years now. It's never been confirmed or denied that Bynes was running the account. That is, until now.
@PersianLA27 — who says her name is Ashley Banks — continues to consistently post pictures of Bynes and tweet from her point of view. Though, on Wednesday the account did claim the Amanda Bynes verified account is the only real one.
Now that she appears to be back in the swing of things, we have full confidence that Bynes is going to pull a total Britney Spears and have the comeback of the decade in 2017. She seems to be thriving while staying out of the entertainment business, so maybe resurrecting her acting career isn't in the cards. But who knows, we could be looking at the next Vera Wang or Diane von Furstenberg.
Do you think Bynes is poised to stage an epic comeback?
