The erratic theatrics of Amanda Bynes has earned another concerned celebrity friend: Nick Cannon. During an on-air interview with Howard Stern, the husband of Mariah Carey said he tried to reach out to Bynes but he wasn’t successful. For those who don’t remember, Nick and Amanda worked together on her Nickelodeon show All That, during the years 1998-2000.
“I worked on Amanda’s show. . . that’s like my little sister,” Cannon told Stern. “To see someone you’ve seen at nine years old), she running around with a snotty nose and now to see her, that’s like wow, man it’s sad.”
Cannon also discussed his failed attempt to contact Bynes with Stern.
“I tried to reach out,” he continued. “That’s the thing, she doesn’t have any of her people anymore.” Former NSYNC member Lance Bass also tried to reach out to Bynes earlier this month via Twitter but the ex-Nickelodeon star responded by insulting him in a tweet.

The cryptic Amanda Bynes Twitter attack chronicles continue. This time the troubled former child star has lashed out at drag queen superstar RuPaul. Bynes dissed the Drag Race host and her own father on Twitter by saying, “My dad is as ugly as RuPaul! So thankful I look nothing like you both! I had nose surgery after my mug shots so my nose and I are gorgeous!”
But this latest online rant wasn’t as random as Bynes’ written attacks on Jay-Z, Rihanna or Perez Hilton. The ex-Nickelodeon star’s war of words with Ru all stemmed from a vicious Twitter attack she first unleashed on People Magazine, which included an anti-gay slur.
Bynes tweeted to the writers of the celebrity magazine, “Um, @Peoplemag Hello? I’m not lost and alone! What the f * ** are you talking about? Follow me on twitter you f******,” she wrote via DListed. The tweet was quickly deleted, but not before RuPaul got wind of it.
In a response, RuPaul tweeted, “Derogatory slurs are ALWAYS an outward projection of a person’s own poisonous self-loathing@Amanda Bynes.” He then humorously added, “I’m a man, duh!”
Bynes is extremely lucky that Ru took the high road. He could have easily shut her down if he really wanted to.
