Amanda Bynes: Why Doesn't Anyone Help Her?!

by at .

Graphic Tweets about Drake. Odd Twitter pics and videos galore. Increasingly frequent accounts of bizarre antics and rants against her perceived enemies.

Yes, Amanda Bynes' erratic behavior in recent months has become legendary. But why doesn't anyone step in to help the clearly troubled actress?

To hear her tell it, because she doesn't need help. She's not entirely wrong. Strange behavior aside, there's little to necessitate a Britney-style intervention.

While some of her recent actions have drawn comparisons to Spears circa 2007, there is nothing like a conservatorship in the works for Amanda Bynes.

Everyone can see that something's up with her, but topless photos, cheek piercings and uncalled-for feuds with Jenny McCarthy don't mean much legally.

Says legal consultant and alternative sentencing expert Wendy Feldman:

"There are two standards that courts look at as far as conservatorships."

"The first is the person a danger to themselves - Britney Spears was and demonstrated that often - and the second is whether the person a danger to society."

"Britney Spears was, and to her two children as well. Amanda may have a serious mental illness, but that does not meet the standard in court."

"There is no record of suicide attempts or drug overdoses."

Yet. Here's hoping Amanda's family and friends - all of whom are hot, she made a point of saying this week - step in and get through to her, and soon.
