Amanda Bynes can’t stand “that bitch” Lindsay Lohan, is trying to avoid her in NY

As we’ve heard, Amanda Bynes is currently in New York city after fleeing LA and the paparazzi who follow her. The move has the added benefit of allowing her to wander around on foot instead of driving on a suspended license and continuing to rack up violations. There is one setback however – her nemesis Lindsay Lohan is also in New York. The last we heard about this feud, Lindsay tweeted that Amanda should face some consequences, while Amanda (allegedly) told TMZ off the record that Lindsay’s latest hit and run (as of publication) was “karma” and that Lindsay was “not cool.” So this rivalry between the two fallen former child actresses is on, and they’re very aware of each other. In an effort to avoid Lindsay while she’s also in New York City, Amanda is said to be calling stores, restaurants and especially hotels ahead to make sure that Lindsay isn’t there. This sounds like a lot of foresight for a woman who is behaving so strangely, and I’ll get to more on that in a moment:

“Amanda knows that Lindsay is currently in New York, and she is going to great lengths to avoid her,” a source close to the situation tells Radar. “Amanda had contemplated staying at the Dream Hotel, but when she was told that Lindsay had been hanging out there, and it had been the scene of her most recent arrest, she crossed it off her list and is instead staying with some friends.

“Amanda knows the press would go into a feeding frenzy if she and Lindsay were in the same place, so she is calling ahead to restaurants and stores to make sure that Lindsay isn’t there. Amanda just wants nothing to do with Lindsay and doesn’t know why she was commenting on her legal troubles when Lindsay is no saint herself.”

[From Radar]

As mentioned, this makes it seem like Amanda is entirely cognizant of her surroundings and is planning ahead, while other stories we’ve heard recently suggest otherwise. This week’s US Weekly has some more anecdotes about Amanda’s odd behavior that I haven’t seen elsewhere. They also confirm that she really hates Lindsay and calls her “that bitch Lindsay.” That’s a pretty mild way to refer to The Cracken. Here are some excerpts from US Weekly’s print edition story on Amanda. Note that these are different incidents than the time she applied makeup and stripped to a bra in spin class or the time she spent over two hours in a store dressing room.

Open all night, Park Avenue’s Hair Party 24 Hours gets its share of interesting clients. But even the seen-it-all staff was alarmed by the young woman who drifted in at 2:30 AM on September 22, muttering to herself. “It took a while for us to realize it was Amanda Byes,” says a worker at the NYC shop. “She was staring in the mirrors around the room, completely on her own.” Finally she left, turning up that afternoon at beauty store C.O. Bigelow downtown. “She was talking to the light fixtures and singing loudly,” a source says of Bynes, 26. “And she tripped on the way out…”

At the gym… she spent an hour in a locker room attaching false eyelashes while belting out Usher’s “Without You.” Dolled up, she then sat down on a treadmill with her small mirror, says a source. “She applied way too much lipstick…”

“I need to make myself pretty,” Bynes declared repeatedly at Dari Boutique in L.A.’s Studio City, per a stunned store onlooker. “She was frazzled and her face looked all picked apart. She went to the bathroom and stayed in there for 45 minutes, putting on makeup and doing squats.”

On how she hates Lindsay
“She obsessively hates Lindsay [Lohan],” says the Bynes pal. “She rambles about ‘that bitch Lindsay,” all the time… A rep for Lohan insists “there is no feud.”

[From US Weekly, print edition, October 8, 2012]

It sounds less like “move that cone” for Amanda and more like Britney Spears-level stuff. These stories sound like she’s having some serious, ongoing issues. I just hope some family or friends are helping her. It’s reassuring that Radar claims she’s staying with friends, although who knows what they’re up to or if they’re the kind of friends who can help her.

    Shit doesn’t like shit?

    I’m with Amanda on that one. I live in NYC, too, and if I had any kind of celebrity clout I’d call all the restaurants I go to ahead of time to make sure Lindsay Lohan wasn’t there, too.

    And yes, I think the Amanda situation is more Britney-ish than Cracken-ish. I hope her friends aren’t enablers like the people who surrounded Britney back then.

    • cmc says:

      Also, Amanda has killer legs!

      • Thinkaboutit says:

        Aren’t they gorgeous?? Who knew?!

      • Lucy says:

        That’s exactly what caught my eye as well, her legs are fantastic.

      • Sweet Dee says:

        Right! She does squats while putting on makeup in the locker room and it works. That’s hilarious.

        Anyway I doubt ANYone who isn’t cracked out can stand The Cracken.

        Sadly, my theory is that Amanda is on meth. Someone said her face looked all picked apart and if you’ve ever seen someone on meth they’re delusional and pseudo-schizophrenic like that.

      • Nev says:

        This is a mental health issue. Someone close to her should see to it that she seeks help or at the very least is thinking or aware of the option for herself if and when she decides.

    • RocketMerry says:

      Yep, poor girl seems to be having a serious meltdown and severe mental issues. Drugs can really ruin one’s head.
      Intervention, please.

      Oh, and I agree, those legs are gorgeous!

      • The Original Tiffany says:

        It is a damned shame those legs are wasted on what sounds like a meth addict.
        I would treat those legs with utmost care if they were mine.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        The legs ARE lovely, but the nails detract from the overall package.

      • RocketMerry says:

        @Bella and O’Tiff, Hi! :D

        I know, right?! If I had legs like those I’d be bathing in miilk, scrubbing, waxing and covering them in cream with the most obsessive constance. Sigh.

        Also, agree on the nails! What is this pointy claws trend? It actually feels dangerous, if anything. What if she snaps and stabs you in the neck with one of those?!

      • Steph says:

        Symptoms point to either schizophrenia or meth addiction. Both cause psychosis and picking at skin. My money is on schizophrenia. Her friends would have to be pretty crappy human beings not to be trying to help her, so hopefully that’s not the case.

      • Hakura says:

        @RocketMerry“Also, agree on the nails! What is this pointy claws trend? It actually feels dangerous, if anything.”

        IKR? Hell, what if you were half asleep & went to rub/wipe your eye, or God forbid, itch the inside of your ear…With those talons?

        You could easily blind or deafen yourself. I’d worry about catching them on my clothes or bedding. x_x

    • logan says:

      Just seems to me the girl (Amanda) is good at multi-tasking. Lindsay can’t do one thing let alone two things at once!
      Team Amanda!!

  3. Jill says:

    It’s like Celebrity… I mean “Hasbeens Deathmatch”.

  4. brin says:

    Hasn’t NY been through enough?

  5. Hautie says:

    How bizarre is it, that two screwed up former child stars, can’t see that they both need to go dry out.

    Yet I suspect the issue with Amanda, is that she needs to lay off what ever she is smoking.

    Lohan is beyond help.

    • erika says:

      Hating on Lohan is the clearest sign of sanity – psychiatrists should test w/ it–

      “Relax, now, before we end our counseling relationship, how do you feel about Lindsay Lohan? How does she make you feel?”

      meth sounds about right, i watch all those intervention/addiction stuff,

      someone here mentioned Schizophrenia, which it sounds a lot like, but, they imagine/see/hear/smell/touch things that aren’t there, i doubt it would lead her too do squats, nails, shop/try on clothes— it’s more reacting to ‘air’

      If I was in NYC? – i’d LOVE a run in w/ the Cracken!!! OMG! “Crackie! Crackie! can i get a picture!”

  6. Talie says:

    This was kind of funny: “putting on makeup and doing squats.”

    At least she’s exercising.

  7. Green_Eyes says:

    Seems they share horrible taste in fashion or one very bad stylist!

  8. V4Real says:

    Somebody please send these two train wrecks back to LA and get them out of my city. I think they will do far more damage than the aliens did in The Avengers.

  9. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I guess she doesn’t like the competition.

  10. some bitch says:

    The only way this can get better is if they get into a fender bender.

    That being said, I am pretty envious of Amanda’s figure. Accidental gym motivation along with my daily trainwreck fix. Hmm.

  11. lucy2 says:

    Is it wrong to want to put them each in a car facing each other, and see what happens?

    Seriously, it sounds like Bynes is either having some long, bad drug trip, or she has serious mental issues. Whatever it is, she needs help, and it’s sad no one will or can get it to her.

  12. mln76 says:

    I believe that Amanda is possibly a good person with mental health issues self medicating to hide her symptoms. On the other hand Lohan is a piece of trash who has no conscious-she may have mental health issues but sober/drunk/medicated she will steal, lie, and con people until she’s dead. But parasites like her tend to live longer then you’d expect ala Courtney Love.

    • Alana Fajina says:

      So True!! Completely Agree!!

    • Stellax2 says:

      I agree completely!!!
      I wouldn’t be surprised if Bynes was later diagnosed with schizophrenia. Unfortunately, she at an age where that ugly disorder can rear it’s ugly head.

      I do think it’s smart that she is going out of her way to avoid blohan.
      If they were in the same club, store, etc., Blohan would make such a ruckus it would drive anyone crazy. She would bully Bynes, I have no doubt it my mind.

  13. Brown says:

    We need to be thankful that they hate each other. If they were friends and ever teamed up…. they would destroy the city

  14. lizzi says:

    is she maybe doing psychedelic drugs? Mushrooms always make me talk to light fixtures…

  15. Riana says:

    Not that I liked her before but I gotta say her beef with Amanda just really pushes Lohan into the lost cause section for me. It seems obvious Amanda is suffering from some mental condition and doesn’t seem entirely awarely of what she’s doing from one moment to the next.

    Lindsey has LITERALLY gotten away with SO much crap and it’s STILL not good enough for her. How dare someone else steal her shine? GASP, she shouldn’t face ANY consequences. Everyone else is guilty and she’s the angel withe glow of Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor shining behind her…annoying witch.

    I really do seriously think aomething is mentally off with Amanda I could totally see her committing suicide.

  16. Sirsnarksalot says:

    When these two finally cross paths at a club/restaurant/hotel lobby it’s going to be EPIC. Can. Not. Wait.

    • Minty says:

      Oh noes! That would be terrible. Think of the collateral damage. Too many innocent bystanders in a crowded city like NY.

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      Yes! Please tell me there is a location of Chateau Marmont or Soho House in NYC…lol shows how much I get out ;)

  17. ladybert62 says:

    It could be that Ms. Amanda has episodes of where she is “psychotic” (strong word I know but I can not think of a different one right now).

    She could be clear for a few days and then if she does drugs, alcohol etc, then she is episodic again.

    I think her and cracken both need psychiatric help.

  18. Chicagogurl17 says:

    Most physochitic breaks happen in the early 20′s….it’s when people with schizophrenia, schizoaffective or physchosis issues tend to first start showing signs. She was actually seemingly sweet and talented. I hope she doesn’t get lost and that she finds the help she needs.

  19. babythastarsshinebrite says:

    Mental illness does not discriminate

  20. hillbillyinthecorner says:

    Never women are are young girls in their early twenties….Amanda is 27 soon and Lindsay is not far behind…that is full flat out adults….Geez !! and these arn’t your average 27 yr olds either…they have been grown since they were 13 and 14….Amanda at least had supporting parents till she was 18 …Lindsay kick her momma to the curb at 16 …
    Amanda is not as crazy at she is letting on….thats one smart woman she is riding on Lindsay coat tails right not and has had more publicity and photos taken of her in the last few months then the last few years…Both are has been child stars who didn’t transistion into adult stars…Amanda can be hopefully saved from herself and her habits but Lindsay is a lost cause , because you can’t save someone who doesn’t want to be saved….
    Amanda sounds mental to me…Her Daddy or friends or somebody need to slap a 5051 on her the next time she “wanders around ” acting bizzare and get her committed…and stop this game she is playing cause its mainly a game to her…cause she not doing anything that would get her in real trouble which shows me that she knows what she is doing….Remember shes a actress !!!!

    • lola says:

      so, it’s not possible to have a mental breakdown when you’re in your late 20′s and have a loving family or what are you trying to say? do you know her personally? do you know her really well?

  21. QQ says:

    She looks really good with her face hidden

  22. yolo says:

    I can’t WAIT to read about the cat fight on 59th and Columbus Circle! I mean, with both of them in NYC, it’s bound to happen, paths are gonna cross. I think Amanda can take Lohan out with those cat nails but never underestimate the rage of a ginger.

  23. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    Maybe they could team up for a reality show. Bet Seacrest is already on that.

  24. Bess says:

    I just found this clip about Lohan’s comeback role… it’s priceless.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Bess, the quality on that video is squat, but the content IS TRULY PRICELESS! Thank you SO much for that link! Made my morning. :D

  25. mln89 says:

    i don’t know if i believe this. new york is big enough not to run into someone if you don’t want to. i don’t think you have to call ahead to every place you go.

    whatever is going on with amanda, she sounds like she has mental issues and needs help. i would suggest that her family do what britney’s father did with her: a 5150 and power of attorney/conservatorship. whether it’s drugs or mental illness she’s not in control of her faculities and is not lucid.

  26. the original bellaluna says:

    I’d avoid “that bitch Lindsay” too, if I was in the same vicinity. (My shots aren’t up-to-date, and I’m sure she’s got a few other things going on, for which a vaccine doesn’t yet exist.)

  27. Flamingo says:

    Google Dan Schneider Amanda Bynes.

    • erika says:

      omg….whay more do you know? if this is true…which, sadly, i think it is, than i’m damn sympathetic for amanda, and it really might explain, all this koo koo behavior…..on the verge…

      omg poor woman, this enrages me, i want justice on this slick pig dan schneider…

  28. Cinesnatch says:

    Please tell me that this Celebitchy post will somehow magically inspire an SNL skit this weekend.

    Please, please, please.

  29. dcypher1 says:

    I agree amanda needs help big time but u cant force someone who dosent want help believe me I tried before. Maybe her family has tried to help her before but she refused. How do u help sumone who think she dosent need it. Im sure her oarents tried but gave up cause they were getting no where with her. With addicts sum times people give up on those who wont help themselves and are in denial. Which amanda has big time DENIAL.

  30. dj says:

    Poor Amanda. She needs in-patient treatment but that is no guarantee unless she wants help. If she is psychotic and she adheres to meds regimen then she will get better. It is possibly bi-polar if she is self-medicating and psychotic features. All this is allegedly though. I wish her all the best. Hope the family steps in and gets her the help she needs. Not fair to compare her to Lindsay Lohan.

  31. AnnieGrey says:

    Amanda’s actions are more alarming to me than Lindsay’s. In the way that Lindsay can always bounce back out of this, but Amanda looks to be carrying an underlying mental illness that needs care like now. That can take a turn for the tragic and none of us want that. I know Lindsay is easy to joke about, but Amanda’s fall is a little bit different. imo

  32. magic mint says:

    I know this is far fetched but is it possible that someone is gaslighting Amanda. I’m not a huge fan or anything but this behavior is so sudden and out of context with her life and career. It could be the pressure of hollywood….her star lost it’s shine earlier than she expected. But it almost seems to me that someone (influential) is pulling her strings in a bad way. She may be being black balled for some slight to a big wig.I think her repulsion with being compared to Lindsay completely proves her sanity.
