Amanda Bynes

I DO NOT NEED

A CONSERVATORSHIP

EXCLUSIVE

Amanda Bynes
insists ... she's not having a Britney Spears-type meltdown -- telling friends she does NOT need a conservatorship because she's perfectly capable of making her own life choices.

Amanda is adamant ... she has no substance abuse problems and she dismisses the pending criminal hit-and-run charges and the DUI cases -- claiming the charges are all bogus.

Amanda says her family has NEVER brought up even the possibility of a conservatorship. This is consistent with a contact TMZ had with a rep for Amanda's family several months back ... the rep insisted the family felt Amanda had NO mental problems. 

We do know several friends and relatives of Amanda's family have tried convincing them Amanda needs professional help, but as of early summer the pleas fell on deaf ears.

As we first reported -- Amanda's neighbors and fellow gymgoers have become increasingly alarmed  ... claiming Amanda has shown worrisome signs of mental distress, including speaking to inanimate objects.

As for reports Amanda's entering rehab in the next couple days – the actress says no way ... there's no reason to check into a treatment facility.

These kind of story's are the reasons that young celeberties go crazy in the first place. You are giving them the attention they need to make thier money so they keep doing it. Sometimes when a celeberity is not getting as much attention they need something to kind of get the spot light on them again. This is the case sometimes but I garantee that is not always on purpose! If I was a young celeberity such as Miley Cyrus or Amanda Bynes I would be annoyed at the fact that they are constantly being compared to other stars such a Britney Spears. They are hoping to find something like Britney Spears again just so they can sell their papers.
Us as readers are sparked by the occasional scandle but we like to see happy news too. We want our entertainment news to be more real then just some people with a camera stalking and bullying people that are just like us. Everyone makes mistakes so why does people having alot of money have to change how we look at them?

granted.. you cannot believe everything any media outlet reports..especially the details that they report. However, when you get into 5 car accidents in a month.. something is going on, and it insults the intelligence of public when a person like amanda denys denys denys.

To me, it seems she is admitting that she is breaking the law by choice, and is perfectly aware of it.....lock her up.

Maybe she just need s a FULLTIME chauffeur so she can sit back, get drunk, make calls, text, eat, whatever. Amanda -- Get off the damned phone and stop texting. Drive the damn car and pay attention before you kill someone. It's that simple.
