Amanda Bynes

Mortified At Drake 'Vagina' Comment

EXCLUSIVE

Amanda Bynes
has turned it around in a big way ... and one of the markers is that she is now remorseful about things she did and said when she was at her worst -- particularly her comment about Drake, "I want Drake to murder my vagina."

Sources directly connected with Amanda tell TMZ ... she is in the territory of being her old self again.  They say the fact that the Drake comment "horrifies her" shows she again has a sense of the difference between right and wrong.

But there's more.  We're told Amanda has stopped smoking weed, she's in the process of removing a number of inappropriate tattoos, and she's kind to people with whom she interacts.

Most impressive ... Amanda is now at FIDM -- the Fashion Institute of Design Merchandising in Orange County -- and she's become so self-confident she makes presentations to her entire class and freely interacts with her classmates.

TMZ broke the story ... Amanda was diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolarity.  It's apparent the meds and the therapy are working.

"she's become so self-confident she makes presentations to her entire class", um that's pretty much a requirement of being an adult and going on to higher education. I wouldn't expect these bloggers on TMZ to know that since they are most likely HS drop outs who don't even know the difference between your and you're.

I hope she realizes she has nothing to be ashamed of. She was at the mercy of a chemical imbalance. The world isn't going to hold her accountable for that. People are more likely to cheer her on with her courageous self care.

Meds and therapy or terroristic mind control? I think people are so scared about what the mental health system can do to them that they just go along with whatever the demands are.

If they demand she appear cured by renouncing all her old ways, then so be it. I am sure rappers say worse things in their songs than what she said to Drake. I don't see what is so inappropriate about angel wings, and I never knew that she had a problem with self confidence. Maybe she is being nice to everyone because that was another complaint against her that she made rude comments. I guess Joan Rivers must be very mentally ill then, because she is always cutting someone down.

I mean who really knows what is going on with this poor girl any more. I think the meds are making her face look puffy and she seems kind of stiff and out of it like the new and refurbished Britney Spears. Those meds don't help anyone or cure anything. They erase the knowledge of what normal is so that its victims just become compliant robots.

Amanda was popular for her personality and her acting. Now that is all erased for some fashion career. I hope she doesn't design smurf wigs or she could get in more trouble . . .

Holy crap! Was that a NICE, POSITIVE STORY about someone? This 2 days after the Christina Aguilera pregnanteans bloated and fat" asinine story. its nice to read things when TMZ doesn't generate hatred anf/or vicious attacks just because they're bored or short on substance.

This is an all time low for Harvey and his website. Harvey paid paparazzi and other deviants to camp out at Amanda Bynes's home and follow her 24/7 so that he could put footage of her having these psychotic episodes. The stories were always at her expense, calling her horrible names and exploiting her for web traffic and tv ratings. If she ends to hurting herself its on Harvey and her family should sue him.

Good for her. Hope she stays on the right path. Good to see the general public isn't ragging on the poor girl. In fact, people seem mostly sympathetic.

Just think of all the people out there that are undiagnosed still. It's almost fortunate that her meltdown happened in public because it allowed people to see that something was seriously wrong and ended up allowing her the opportunity to be properly diagnosed.

Leave this young woman alone.

She seems be on the right track and these stories make it difficult to keep her there.

I really am so very proud of Amanda. Thankfully, her parents cared enough for her to intervene and she was able to turn things around. I really felt for her when she was not ok. It was obvious that she was suffering from some sort of disorder. I wish her only the best. I hope that more people who may also be suffering from such disorders or chemical dependence get the help they need and improve.

Keep fighting pretty girl. you're doing amazing.

Little by little we are starting to hear this name. I am rooting for Amanda but I wish the media would just leave her alone. TMZ this is what the third or fourth day within a week or so that you've had a story on her?? Of course she is mortified!! She was sick and not in her right mind!! Idiots!!
