Amanda Bynes has become a certified whack job. She Tweets weird photos of herself, gets arrested and has seemingly lost touch with all reality.

Lynn and Rick Bynes seem pretty in the dark about the fact that their troubled daughter Amanda Bynes got arrested for DUI early Sunday morning.

In fact, they found out no sooner than we did ... if not later.

Amanda was stopped by police in Van Nuys, Calif., high on Adderall and off her medication for schizophrenia and bipolarity, which she denies she has.

Her folks apparently think she's fully recovered from her meltdown last year, too, because the couple recently declined to renew their conservatorship.

That gave Rick and Lynn full control over Amanda's comings and goings, as well as all her medical, legal and financial decisions, for the past year.

Once it lapsed, though, they just let, believing Amanda does not actually suffer from mental illnesses and is fine on her own. Right on cue, she moved out.

Soon enough, she got her own place ... and failed out of fashion school. Rick and Lynn? They have no idea where she is or what she's been doing.

Based on a series of recent events, it appears Amanda Bynes' career aspirations and life comeback are going down in flames or up in smoke.

The 28-year-old has reportedly failed out of the Fashion Institute Design & Merchandising, according to a new report, after less than a full year there.

Amanda Bynes' DUI arrest earlier this week sparked concerns that the mentally fragile aspiring fashion designer is headed down a dark path again.

She's reportedly on Adderall and off her medication for schizophrenia and bipolarity, and worse yet, insiders say she's "smoking pot and drinking again.”

Bynes' conservatorship, under which her parents controlled her financial, legal and medical decisions after her meltdown last year, just lapsed.

They simply didn't ask the court to renew it, believing their daughter was better.

Troubled actress Amanda Bynes was under the influence of Adderall when she was arrested for DUI earlier this week, according to sources close to the case.

Her problems reportedly run much deeper than that, too.

The 28-year-old took the Adderall, whch was prescribed by a doctor, before getting stopped in Van Nuys, Calif., Sunday and failing multiple field sobriety tests.

Amanda Bynes was arrested for DUI and posted bail.

Adderall is a stimulant and Amanda was described as "out of it" when she was pulled over, so the fact that it was prescribed won't help her beat a DUI.

Operating a vehicle while impaired is what it is, and it appears this was the case, though it may help her avoid a probation violation on top of this.

Bynes wasn't abusing or obtaining a substance illegally, at least, so it's unlikely a judge will throw the book at her for violating probation as a result.

The bigger problem, however, is her mental state:

Amanda Bynes has been through her fair share of trouble in the past, but the former child star has seemed to be on the mend in recent months.

Or so it appeared until the surprising events of last night, which saw her arrested  on a DUI charge, having been out of the public eye for months.

After a very public meltdown during which Bynes was admitted to a psychiatric ward, the actress seemed to recover almost miraculously last year.

Reportedly committed to getting her life and career back on track, she has stayed out of the spotlight, returned to school and pulled it together.

A big reason for that has been her sobriety, and remaining committed to that.

Bynes quit smoking pot (which was said to be a trigger for some of her most severe episodes of paranoia), and managed to stay out of the tabloid headlines.

Until last night, that is, after Bynes was pulled over while driving in the San Fernando Valley and promptly arrested by a highway patrol officer.

What does an Oscar winner have in common with a former Jersey Shore cast member?

How can the First Lady of the United States relate to the woman who had sex with Ray J on video camera?

Aside from really weird Instagram photos and a love of revealing their skin to Internet followers, what could Rihanna talk to Miley Cyrus about for hours on end?

The answer to all these questions is one and the same: HAIR.

Nearly all famous females (and a few famous males) have undergone major hairstyle transformations over the past few months, from shortening their locks to dyeing them an unexpected color.

So, in honor of Throwback Thursday, we've collected a number (29, to be exact) of the most radical alterations in the following photo gallery and we're asking readers to consider:

Who is 'doing it right? And who is 'doing it way, way, way wrong?

If anything positive comes out of Robin Williams' death, perhaps it will be this:

Celebrities (and people in general) will be more open about their personal issues, more up front about internal battles that could lead to serious consequences.

In an interview with Glamour that went viral yesterday, for example, Girls star Zosia Mamet admitted to an eating disorder as a teenager that made her want to die.

She's healthy now, but she knows she'll never be completely over this dangerous "obsession."

But Mamet can at least find solace in the fact that she isn't alone. The following famous females have all struggled with issues of weight and self-esteem - and have all bravely come out the other side. We salute them.

To paraphrase Jonah Hill, whose gay slur at a photographer went viral today, being good at making movies does not make one good at being a famous person.

Celebrity status and paparazzi attention go hand-in-hand. Sometimes to the point of hand-to-hand combat if you're Kanye West. It's a very weird dichotomy.

Some celebs have dealing with paps down to a science and even use it to their advantage (Kim Kardashian). Others rarely keep their cool (Justin Bieber).

Others still, like Jonah, aren't famous enough to get used to being hounded, but are still famous enough to get harassed occassionally and make a bad decision.

Then there's Alec Baldwin, who's in his own league.

Take a look at all of the above, and many more stars who have had memorable paparazzi clashes they wish they could take back (or not) below:

Self-portraits, aka selfies, have been around since the dawn of cheap photography. But now, thanks to the Internet, the selfie has become something of an epidemic. Or a favorite pastime? 

Taking selfies can totally be a hobby. Or at least that's what we'll tell ourselves. Even if Katy Perry says selfies are a disease.

For some people in Hollywood, the selfie can be a resume builder, cheap publicity, or the very downfall of a career. 

Celebrities LOVE their selfies. LOVE. And we love that they love their selfies because it really does make them feel just like one of us.

After all, we all use the same filters, right? Right.

The Cleavage Selfie
Cleavage and boob selfies abound on Instagram and Twitter. Kind of like Courtney Stodden's boobs abound in this selfie.

From The Duckface Selfie to the Douchebag, take a look at these 19 types of celebrity selfies and then go congratulate yourself on all the ways you're the same.

Or just hide your head in shame. Your choice.

EVEN CATS LIKE SELFIES, YOU GUYS!

There simply isn't enough fashion variation to go around in the celebrity gossip world.

Sometimes, a singer dresses like another singer; other times, a Kardashian dons a similar outfit as another Kardashian.

And still other times, an artist resembles a cartoon superhero or a can of Arizona iced tea.

Wait... what?!? Click through the following gallery to compare the looks of some very famous celebrities with their unexpected fashion dopplegangers:

Hollywood has a bit of a Peter Pan complex sometimes never wanting its child actors to grow up. But grow up they must as people do.

Occasionally, the actors and actresses we love as children make the transition to adult stars ... sometimes making a pit stop as amateur porn stars ... before going on to transition successfully into adult actors known for more than just their childhood roles.

Sometimes those transitions are less successful and we spend their infamous adulthoods wondering what happened?

(Drugs and alcohol happened, that's what. Looking at you, Lindsay Lohan.)

Others, like second-time mama Drew Barrymore, go through seriously rough growing pains and emerge on the other side bigger and better than anyone could have imagined. Maybe there's hope for LiLo yet.

And then there's Leonardo DiCaprio who just gets better and better with age. Seriously. He's a fine wine.

Take a look at these 21 child actors who grew up and stayed famous. Or infamous.

Okay, so we didn't say they were ALL success stories. Amanda Bynes was a delightful child star whose hard-partying ways caught up to her. Kind of like another star we know...
