With luck, Amanda will continue to stay out of the spotlight so she can get better.



Troubled actress Amanda Bynes has been released from a Malibu rehab facility after finishing her inpatient treatment and headed to her parents' house, People reported very late Wednesday. Just in time for the holidays!

"Amanda and her entire family would like to thank everyone who's contacted them with good thoughts and wishes for Amanda's recovery," lawyer Tamar Arminak said in a statement. "Amanda has completed her inpatient rehabilitation and she's feeling better every day."

Bynes told In Touch Weekly she left just before Thanksgiving and is feeling fine. "I am doing very well," she said Tuesday. "I'm doing great, it's been five days since I got out of rehab."

The 27-year-old has been in mental health facilities since July, following that incident where she set a driveway on fire. She was moved to the Malibu facility later on. Her mother Lynn remains in control of Amanda's finances and decision-making.

"She's now looking at various colleges with the intention of majoring in fashion design. She's mentioned before she's interested in creating a clothing line," Arminak's statement read. "Despite the fact Amanda is no longer in a facility, her outpatient treatment is continuing. She's very happy to reestablish the loving relationship with her family that she once shared."
