Amanda Bynes Is Home For The Holidays
Amanda Bynes is back at home living with her parents after an involuntary stay in rehab.She's been taking walks around her parents' neighborhood, she went shopping at Forever 21 and she gave a brief statement to InTouch: "I am doing very well. I'm doing great, it's been five days since I got out of rehab."
Bynes was hospitalized after setting fire to a neighbor's driveway. Previously, she had been charged with a DUI and she got in trouble for tossing a bong out the window during her stay in NYC.
Bynes is considering going to fashion school, the family attorney says. Tamar Arminak told People, "She's now looking at various colleges with the intention of majoring in fashion design. She's mentioned before she's interested in creating a clothing line."
In the meantime, she's still continuing outpatient treatment, and her mother Lynn Bynes will still be in charge of her daughter's finances. Arminak said, "She's very happy to reestablish the loving relationship with her family that she once shared."
Bynes will be heading back to court on January 7 for a status update in her DUI case.
