Amanda Bynes returns to court in NYC wearing a blue wig & gym clothes, of course

If there was ever a person out there to make Lindsay Lohan look sober, competent and reasonably court-attired, it’s Amanda Bynes. Bynes made a court appearance yesterday in NYC – this is the same case where the NYPD have accused her of throwing her bong out of her apartment’s window, after which Amanda accused a New York police officer of slapping her vadge. To show her disdain (or pleasure?) for the proceedings, Amanda donned an aqua-colored wig (with bangs!) and she wore some ratty-looking gym clothes. See? I’m not looking back at Lindsay Lohan’s inappropriate court attire as “the good old days”.

Amanda Bynes rolled into a New York courtroom today dressed more for a rave than a court hearing — sporting an aqua-colored wig, sweatpants, a tank top … and sneakers!

… and no one was surprised.

Bynes was in court to fight allegations she threw a glass bong out of her NY apartment window back in May.

According to police, Amanda threw the bong out of her window before they arrested her, but she has denied the accusation … in fact, she says the arresting officer sexually assaulted her by slapping her vagina.

She also said cops entered her apartment illegally.

But inside the courtroom today … nothing really happened. Bynes was virtually silent — and the judge continued the case to August 26 … though Bynes isn’t ordered to appear until Sep. 26.

I imagine Amanda still thinks that this is the only time she’s ever been accused of anything, but she’s forgetting her DUI in California and her post-arrest spree of sketchiness in LA. She moved to NYC just as the LAPD was going to have to buckle down and start actually charging her with some of the myriad traffic crimes she was committing. But now she’s in New York and all the NYPD has on her is felony bong-tossing. Here’s the video of Amanda coming into court:

The wig game has improved. But that’s only because her wig game was pretty busted to begin with. And, as always, I checked in on Amanda’s Twitter to see what she’s been up to. She’s still tweeting about plastic surgery and now she thinks the Obamas are “ugly”.

    I can’t help thinking of her as an a*****e. I don’t want to be too judgy since I don’t personally know her, but she is seriously acting like she doesn’t give a f*** about anyone but herself, which is going to bite her in the long run.

  2. Brittney says:

    This is heartbreaking, and I don’t know if I can justify reading stories about her anymore. It’s been said already (and I’m sure it’ll be said again in the comments today), but we are clearly watching a complete breakdown of this woman’s mental health, and I don’t know why no one is doing anything about it. Did Britney’s example mean nothing to anyone? I’m all for media exploitation of people who are asking to be exploited — who make a living that way, even — but her Twitter feed looks like my journal during my worst manic episodes, and it’s so, so sad that she’s become the laughing stock of Hollywood instead of receiving the help she desperately needs.

  3. Nemesis says:

    I don’t think she’s nearly as crazy as she appears. I think she’s playing alot of it up. She needs to stop because she’s over played the crazy card and people are tired of it. Nobody cares anymore.

  4. marie says:

    I’m really starting to believe that this chick is just jackin with folks, which makes her a huge a-shole.

    • Andrew says:

      Agreed. I’m getting a little tired of the mental illness thing everyone is trying to label her as. She very well knows what she is doing. Sure she might be mental about a few things, but I think it’s more delusion than a full out mental illness. She’s mostly just being a jerk. I do wish her well though, it’d be great to see her make a comeback.

  5. break says:

    She couldn’t wear those glasses over a broken nose. What a strange thing to lie about.

  6. Esmom says:

    The Twitter feed looks fake to me. If it was just crazy rambling, would she be so careful with her capitalization?

  7. Mia 4S says:

    I started to wonder if she was faking it (there’s evidence to suggest) but one thing in particular sent me in the other direction; The story about her being fired from the movie Hall Pass for erratic behavior. That was before the DUIs, so unless she’s playing the long con….no something is definitely wrong with her.

    Is she actually getting plastic surgery or just raving?

  8. Joanna says:

    this broad is going to court wearing an blue wig and workout clothes! wtf! AND she’s tweeting about her nose. worry less about your nose and more about your legal problems. self-absorbed twit

  9. beebee says:

    that wig is so Lady Gaga in her Poker Face days.

  10. anneesezz says:

    I tend to think she is just messing with everyone. And, if so, it’s played out. If not, this chick is seriously messed up and her family needs to get involved.

    • Hakura says:

      I was under the impression that they’d tried to get involved (although in what way, I don’t know), & failed. If she does have a *real* problem, it can be difficult for families to intervene, once someone is 18.

      I’m not sure what they are, but I think there are only a few serious requirements that causes the court to force someone into treatment.

  11. JL says:

    Bat Shit crazy or not it’s got to be an act. NO self respecting lawyer is going to let that outfit fly UNLESS going for the “mental” defense.
    I vote total manipulation by Amanda.

  12. MonicaQ says:

    If she’s having an actual nervous breakdown, I’ll eat my hat. Someone had to fill the void of Lindsay Lohan one day.

  13. Bird says:

    I’m not buying this mental illness crap, and now she’s insulted the Obamas, so I’m done with her.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      It’s not so much the fact that she insulted the Obamas, it’s the REASON for which she’s insulting them. If you want to complain about their politics, fine, but why pick on their appearance?
      Oh that’s right-because this girl is so effin’ vapid and superficial, that the only thing she is capable of talking about is other people’s appearance.
      She strikes me as rather unintelligent, not to mention incredibly mean-spirited.

  14. Louisa says:

    I think she is mentally ill AND is enjoying the attention. Some of this is purely fame building but I believe it was originally derived from serious bipolar disorder, which has been slowly developing in her as a result of being sexually molested when younger. She really does need help as eventually she will self destruct

    • Masque says:

      Is bipolar disorder something that develops from external stimuli? I thought it was an internal malfunction. Seriously, I’m not being snotty to your post I’m just a little confused.

      • Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

        No, bi-polar disorder doesn’t appear as a result of outside stimulus. It’s a genetic disorder that is the consequence of a chemical imbalance in the brain. If she has abuse in her history, the problems she is having now are no less horrific than the storm and numbness of bi-polar disorder they’re just related to something else–PTSD, for example. The signs of mental illnesses like the one we’re discussing show up in the individual (usually) in the early to mid twenties. An episode can be triggered by an outside stimulus, but you would already have to had it for that to happen.

  15. kim says:

    She’s fake. I don’t even believe this is real. Her career sucks and American people live a come back story. I walk away from all things FakAnda. There could be a psych hold if it was real and there is not. Totally fakanda.

  16. Kara says:

    What in the world is going w you, Amanda Bynes?!

  17. Grumpycat says:

    I wish she would just go away. I felt bad for her and assumed she had a serious mental problem until I learned that she was cleared by psychologists and deemed totally competent. Now I am just left believing this girl is a complete jerk. I think she is stunted and basically has the maturity of a 13 year old girl, possibly from growing up as a child star and only knowing hollywood as reality. To call people “ugly” repeatedly, she just sounds like a very annoying, very stupid little girl. She really took it too far when she did that with the president and the first lady- while they are dealing with serious problems and issues all over the world, this stupid little girl is obsessing about her nose, smoking a lot of pot and taking selfies every two minutes. I wish people would stop encouraging her by following her on twitter and acting like they are her fans.

    Grow the f up Amanda Bynes. I wonder if you disowned your parents or if they disowned you. You are turning out to be a serious negative drain on society.

    • jwoolman says:

      They didn’t do a full evaluation. Somebody on shift had a chat with her and decided she was not a threat to herself or others, which is all the law cares about. Mentally ill people can write well, spell well, and carry on lucid conversations. They are not necessarily obviously batshit crazy 24/7. It’s only once you’re around them long enough that you realize there is something seriously wrong. Her family knows her very well and this doesn’t seem like an act to them. She did not behave this way earlier, and she has no good reason to put on such an act. It certainly won’t get her jobs. Actually she seems to have no interest in acting any more. It’s common for psychiatric problems to emerge around her age.

    • Lucrezia says:

      The fact she was cleared in the psych evaluation doesn’t make her “fully competent” by any means. That’s not what they’re looking at. The line for involuntary committal is simple: are they a danger to themselves or others?

      You can be completely bonkers, but if you’re not deemed dangerous, you get released.

  18. Nicolette says:

    Whatever her deal is, I wish she’d just go away already.

  19. Jane says:

    I say let’s lock her and Bieber in jail together and throw away the bloody keys. Both of them are a nuisance to society.

  20. HalfricanQueen says:

    Whether its a genuine mental issue (doubtful) or some kind of emotional problem thats gotten worse..I don’t know. What I do know is the mumbling blue haired convict is nothing like the articulate, level headed young woman of not too long ago.. something happened, and I think it’s more than just being butthurt that people forgot who she is…

  21. RosettaStoned says:

    There’s something weird about that site she links to with her “fave pics”. I did a WhoIs lookup on the site that hosts her picture gallery, and it comes back as Influential Media Group, a brand-building company that specializes in Twitter and are considered ‘social media gurus’:

    “Meet the man who makes six figures a quarter just from using Twitter”:

  22. Hakura says:

    I completely agree w/you guys. This is how I look at it:

    - Maybe she sees this as some sort of ‘bastardized method acting‘. Something to prove to the world how *good* an actor she is, & how she deserves to be back in the spotlight.

    - Or maybe she has even loftier ambitions, considering all this as ‘challenging herself’ as an actor, seeing if she can really be that devoted to a ‘role’, that she’d allow it to eclipse & destroy her personal life. If that were the case, I wouldn’t see it as ‘malicious’ or as ‘making fun of’ people w/mental disorders. But if not…

    - She’s either using this *purely* to get attention (possibly hoping to continue her career), in which case the next guess would apply…
    - She’s just genuinely an asshole, or…
    - She truly has mental problems.

  23. Aurelia says:

    She is prolly just acting cray cray so she will be deemed mentally unfit to do any time in jail.

    As for her broken nose. This aint no elective surgery. Its code word for coke burn through.

  24. Lucrezia says:

    For those of you who think she’s acting: are you remembering everything that has happened here?

    That link doesn’t even include all the weird non-driving stuff from September 2012 (getting dumped by publicist, agent and lawyer all in one week; locking herself in bakery bathroom; wandering naked around a tanning salon.)

    Considering the rumours started in 2010 when she left the set of Hall Pass, that’s a seriously long time to be faking it.

    I think it’s far more logical to assume that she’s got mental health problems.
