Amanda Bynes Is Starting A Clothing Line, Everyone

What do you do what your life is spinning out of control, when all feels lost and you're barely holding on?

You start a clothing line. Duh.

Rising tabloid star Amanda Bynes is moving on from acting (and her myriad car shenanigans) and plans on launching her own apparel line, People reports. The former Nickelodeon star told the mag by phone:

"I am retired as an actor. I am moving to New York to launch my career. I am going to do a fashion line... I am not talking about being arrested for DUI because I don't drink, and I don't drink and drive. It is all false."

Police reports would beg to differ. Bynes has made headlines for two hit-and-runs and a DUI in the past year and was caught by Burbank Airport Police this past Sunday driving with a suspended license (her car was subsequently impounded).

She was also photographed smoking from a pipe in her car earlier this month and later locked herself in a West Hollywood dressing room for nearly two hours.

TMZ also reports a strange incident this week in which Bynes started undressing and applying makeup in the middle of a spinning class at Equinox in West Hollywood then abruptly left.

But hey, maybe she had an important business meeting to get to! Clothing lines don't just make themselves. This won't be Bynes first foray into fashion: the child star previously created a collection called Dear By Amanda for Steve & Barry's, a budget retailer that has since closed.
