Amanda Bynes

Mortified At Drake 'Vagina' Comment

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.

Good for her. Bipolar is a brutal illness, never mind adding schizophrenia to the mix. Thats rough. It's a relief to see someone in hollywood actually have people close enough to them who can get them help without trying to benefit for themselves. I hope she makes an acting comeback, I've always enjoyed her movies, and before her very humiliating public meltdown, she was a very rare, private, class act.

I love hearing this kind of news about teen stars who've grown up and hit bumps in the road. Not all of them end up dead and/or ruined.

i go to her gym and she actually hit on my friend's boyfriend and said "do you know who i am?!" and he said no, and she proceeded to stare at him for the rest of his workout and then she followed him out to the parking lot. also, she is still smoking weed. she smokes at the gym out back by the pool area. i saw her buying rolling papers at the gas station right next to the gym.

I'm so happy for Amanda-that she is on the right track. As a parent of a child with BiPolar, I know she can have a wonderful life if she stays on her meds and goes to therapy as my daughter has done and still doing!. Proud of you Amanda! Just as I'm so proud and blown away at how great my daughter is doing!!!!! Mental illness is not a joke nor does it have to cripple ones life.

So glad fro Amanda. But tmz she is not seeking the limelight. She is no longer acting. She clearly wants to go a different way with her life. Why don't you respect that and leave her be. You have plenty of rappers and rapper want to be s to keep these threads full.
