Amanda Bynes remains in a psychiatric hospital in California in the wake of her widely publicized mental breakdown in which she set fire to a stranger's driveway. But despite the actress' trouble state, it is believed that Bynes may soon be starring in her own reality show.
Dan Herman, CEO of Chinga Chang records, exclusively told reporters that "talked to Amanda on Monday and she wants to do this." Herman previously worked with Lindsay Lohan on her upcoming docu-series for the OWN network,
According to reports, Herman revealed that although Bynes is on a psychiatric hold at the UCLA Medical Center, they are negotiating deals over the phone. One of the agreements they have discussed will include a $200,000 hip-hop deal with Pilgrim Studios.
Herman said that the reality show would essentially follow Bynes as she pursued her new music career, and that "Amanda wants to get out of the hospital as soon as possible and get to work. She knows she made a mistake and she knows she'll need meds when she gets out."
"I believe Amanda can work out her issues outside of a treatment center and I'm willing do anything in my power to make that a reality — even fund it," he said of the hip-hop project with Bynes.
While Bynes and Chang are discussing the project's early stages, however, nothing can be done without the authority of Bynes' parents, Rick and Lynn, who have temporary conservatorship over the Hairspray star until it is believed that she is stable enough to make her own decisions.
"Lynn knows I care about Amanda getting better before we hit the studio. I'm a fan. But so far no word back from Lynn," Herman said.
Bynes' parents will hold conservatorship over their daughter until Sep. 30, and will have control over the star's finances, which is worth up to $3.57 million.
