Could Amanda Bynes be headed for the ballroom? Months after the once-troubled actress made headlines for her outrageous behavior and legal troubles, a source has claimed she’s ready to revamp her image — starting with an appearance on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars.
On May 4, a source revealed the following to OK! Magazine.
“They think [Amanda Bynes] has a wonderful underdog story and DWTS is the perfect forum for her to prove she can entertain while being vulnerable the same time.
It’s perfect timing, People think she’s still a mess, but that’s no longer the case. DWTS is the perfect opportunity for her to prove to her friends, family and fans that she’s back in control of her life.”
The magazine’s source claimed Amanda Bynes is currently working out a deal with producers, which could result in a contract worth upwards of $300,000.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Amanda Bynes is currently living in her own apartment in Los Angeles. In February, a source close to the Bynes family revealed the news to ABC News, and gave an update on her situation.
“[Amanda Bynes] is doing much better from where she was months ago. She has her own apartment and is much happier. She and her parents are getting along and [Amanda Bynes] is clear-headed, more focused and has more independence.”
While Amanda Bynes appears to be on the right path at this time, things looked bleak in 2014. In November of that year, after reportedly completing rehab, Amanda Bynes was at odds with her parents over a conservatorship she was placed under following a slew of odd events, including a DUI, a handful of hit and runs and an alleged bong toss in New York City.
At that time, a source told People Magazine that Bynes’ parents wanted what was best for their daughter, and had become willing to give her back some of the financial control she was stripped of months prior.
“Her parents love her so much that they are willing to relinquish this little bit of control. Her mother being conservator is not doing her any good and [Amanda Bynes] is not progressing. They want someone she will respond to and work with.”
Amanda Bynes hasn’t yet commented on a potential appearance on Dancing With The Stars, and an official announcement for the upcoming season isn’t expected to be made until late summer or early fall of this year.
