Amanda Bynes: What.

What we were expecting: Certainly not this. What we got instead: For the longest time, it looked like Amanda Bynes would make it out of the depressing narrative that has befallen so many child stars. The odd pronouncement of her "retirement" aside, she seemed healthy and well-adjusted as she became an adult. Then came this year. A string of traffic mishaps, a DUI charge that she claims is bogus and some allegedly very loopy public behavior has us worried about the former "Amanda Show" star. -- Rick Porter, Zap2itGetty Images
