I was doing the links that are at the bottom of every post (check ‘em out, we update them daily! They start with Mariah Carey today) and I found this funny/sad post by our friends over at Buzzfeed with the wackiest quotes from Amanda Bynes’ “25 Things”. When I first saw that story, I thought it was a parody because I just read the new US Weekly this morning and their “25 Things” is from the awesome Drew Carey. I guess Amanda Bynes gave them a “25 Things” and it was fit for the Internet but not their print edition. You’ll see why when you read it, it’s just sad. She gives brief, superficial anecdotes including the fact that she’s lost four pounds and wants to get down to 100 pounds – at 5’8″ tall.

16. I survived Hurricane Sandy.
17. I bought a Rolex. It’s my most prized possession.

121 pounds at 5’8″ tall is underweight, according to BMI measurements. At 5’8″ tall, a weight of 100 would be classified as “severely underweight.” I don’t know why I’m taking this poor girl seriously, all recent stories about her, and her instagram feed, indicate that she’s not well mentally.
But some of those aren’t bad. It comes across as a failed attempt to make Amanda seem sane. The latest stories about her involve her getting evicted from her New York City apartment after leaving the door open at all hours and replacing all the lightbulbs with red ones. She also smoked pot a lot, which we’ve already heard about her. Amanda is now reportedly living in a hotel.
I want to know about how she “survived” Hurricane Sandy. Did she just wait it out in her apartment or did she go somewhere else? I’m sure there’s an interesting story there, but I don’t know if she’s capable of telling it.
