Amanda Bynes hopped a flight from Los Angeles to N.Y. City late last week, and since arriving in the Big Apple has been exhibiting more bizarre behavior.

Following Amanda Bynes' DUI arrest last week, friends and fans feared that the Amanda of 2012-13 had resurfaced. Unfortunately, they were correct.

She has apparently reverted to the exact same antics we saw before her July 2013 meltdown, involuntary psychiatric hospitalization and conservatorship.

That conservatorship recently expired, with Amanda's parents seemingly having no clue anything was amiss. Well it is, and it likely won't end well.

Friday night, the "retired" actress was seen puffing on a Camel cigarette on the street, wearing a mysterious bandage on one side of her face.

She then rolled into the Cartier store wearing sweatpants, reports indicate.

It's beginning to look like Amanda Bynes's arrest for DUI on Monday was just the beginning of her problems.

Reportedly, Bynes was on Adderrall at the time of her arrest and was so dazed that she stopped her car in the middle of an intersection.

She had been under her parents' care as a result of her previous arrests, but with her conservatorship expired, Amanda is on her own and seems to have returned to the sort of behavior that had friends and fans worried for her life last year.

Amanda was spotted at LAX awaiting a plane to NYC late last night. Witnesses say she was behaving bizarrely, painting her face with excessive amounts of makeup and quietly mumbling to herself.

Following Amanda Bynes' arrest for DUI earlier this week, many took it as a sure sign that she was about embark on another funny/sad downward spiral of drug-fueled insanity.

The fact Bynes' parents didn't know where she was in the days following her arrest, and let their conservatorship expire in the first place, was also not a great sign.

But the surest indication of all that we're in for another Amanda meltdown is the fact that she's returned to her old social media stomping grounds.

Or rather, "Ashley Banks" - which is believed to be Amanda's online alias - is back on Twitter and firing off witty comments left and right.

So how do we know Ashley is Amanda's alter-ego? Well, as you may have guessed, she's not that great at keeping secrets:

Amanda Bynes' parents saw trouble on the horizon for their daughter, even though they legitimately felt she was doing a lot better these days.

Before Amanda Bynes was arrested for DUI early Sunday morning, Rick and Lynn Bynes believed she was in a good place under new circumstances.

A little over a year ago, after several brushes with law and many instances of downright bizarre behavior, the actress was involuntarily hospitalized.

Six months of intensive treatment followed, along with a conservatorship overseen by Rick and Lynn, whose California home she moved back into.

Bynes, 28, enrolled at the Irvine, Calif., location of the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, and her folks believed she had been thriving there.

"They truly believed Amanda was doing well based on the first and second semesters' grades, which were stellar," says a source close to her parents.

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.

Amanda Bynes' New Look

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.

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:

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.
