Amanda Bynes Turns Down Playboy Job Offer

Amanda Bynes has turned down a job offer from Playboy, but it's probably not the kind of job you were thinking.

First, Playboy Radio offered Bynes a guest co-host spot via Twitter Monday. Then on Tuesday TMZ revealed Playboy doesn't only want Bynes for a one-time job; they want to secure her for a full-time spot.

The R-rated program allegedly submitted an offer to the former actress to host her own daily, hour-long radio show. Right now it is only supposed to be a one-week trial, but if she does well the company is willing to extend it to a full year (with a driver and a producer included).

Alas, the 27-year-old later rejected Playboy's proposal because she plans to record an album (of course). "I want to [do the show]. But I can’t because I’m recording an album!" she told TMZ. "I’ll go on their show for an interview when I’m promoting my album."

A representative for Playboy was not immediately available for comment.

The offer might be unexpected, but Bynes does have some experience as a headliner. She starred in Nickelodeon's "The Amanda Show" and had main roles in "Figure It Out" and "All That." However, her last job was back in 2010 playing the uber-religious Marianne Bryant in "Easy A." Last year, Bynes had plans to become a fashion designer and launch her career in New York.

That certainly didn't pan out. Instead, the troubled starlet's time in NYC has included her getting kicked out of gyms, arrested, sent for a psychological evaluation and allegedly evicted from her midtown apartment.
