While some may argue that what actress Amanda Bynes wants is a Lindsay Lohan-style career downward spiral and tabloid drinkity-drunkity headlines, it seems apparent that what this girl wants is another drink. Bynes was reportedly refused entry to the bar at the Standard Hotel Friday night, just hours after being let go from the WeHo Sheriff's Stationfollowing a DUI arrest, according to TMZ.

Bynes, who got to spend the night drying out, had been drinking at The Standard Thursday night when she got behind the wheel of her BMW and managed to clip a Sheriff's Department patrol car. That not-so-swift move got her hauled in on suspicion of drunk driving, and a citation.

The doorman at the Standard was not going to let the former Nickelodeon teen star, now 26, in because the venue did not want to be affiliated with Bynes in case she pulled the same stunt twice.

It seems, sadly, that these days the only performance the young star is hell bent on repeating is drinking and driving.
