Amanda Bynes was a promising child star struggling to transition into adult the Man, and a year later she appeared in what would end up being her biggest hit. the hardest part about breaking up with someone/stopping a friendship is the fact that you don't really have anyone to talk to anymore and you sort of realize that.
In September alone, she was reported to have locked herself in the dressing room of the West Hollywood boutique Kin for two hours, was thrown out of an Equinox in West Hollywood after removing her shirt and exercising in a strapless push-up bra, was photographed smoking an unknown substance in her car and shut herself in New York's Little Cupcake Bakeshop's bathroom for 30 minutes.

Bynes performed on All That from until while also starring in Nickelodeon's The Amanda Show starting inmaking her the network's biggest star. But by 16, Bynes, who graduated from Thousand Oaks High School's independent study program inalready was showing signs that she was tiring of teen fare.
