That’s just what old people do in L.A. and N.Y. You file for conservatorship over your mentally troubled showbiz daughter, then you grab mom and head to see Blue Jasmine for a matinee at the local seniors-filled indie theater chain. However, all is not rosy for Amanda’s parents, because apparently the conservatorship they received doesn’t allow them to access any of Amanda’s money. So, they all had to split a box Junior Mints at the movies.
For her part, Amanda is said to be doing better in treatment. Meaning, her restraints have prevented her from lighting any more dogs on fire or calling other celebrities ugly. Doctors claim Amanda is suffering from PTSD related to her childhood stardom. I’d normally ridicule that but it’s probably actually true. Kid stars get fucked up big time. The best thing to do is hand over the management of their adult lives to the people who put them through that in the first place.
