Amanda Bynes is currently staying in New York in the midst of her latest public meltdown, and as I predicted last week — things seem to be on track for getting worse before they get better. In Touch interviewed Bynes yesterday (because she’s now apparently giving interviews?) who claims that she has a 19-year-old boyfriend named Caleb who works in a bait shop in Costa Mesa, whom she is now engaged to. Just a reminder: Amanda Bynes is twenty-eight.
“I am very needy for friendship and I hate men. I want to f— them, but I can now say I’m engaged — get away from me,” she told an In Touch reporter yesterday, Oct. 5. “I want to be married and I want to be away from people.”
She claimed her 19-year-old fiancé lives in Costa Mesa, California, and works in a bait shop. She told In Touch she hopes they can settle down in New York because she “really [likes] walking and riding [her] bike, and in California, you need to drive.” “I really do not enjoy driving,” she said. “I don’t like the way I look in a car. The lighting is very bad.”
Sounds about right. Bynes elaborated that the two hope to start a family soon and that she hopes to have plenty of boys — but it is very important that she not have any daughters because she would get jealous of them and that would be unacceptable. Just in case you were wondering how far along Amanda Bynes was in her transformation to full on Disney villainess.
But is Amanda Bynes really engaged, you ask? Given that 90% of what comes out of Amanda Bynes mouth is the ramblings of a mentally ill person, Gawker did some crack investigative reporting that I myself should only one day hope to be capable of, and found out that this Caleb person does indeed exist. Whether or not they’re actually engaged is another story.
It wasn’t too hard. Jimmy’s Fishing Supply store is off Newport Blvd. in Costa Mesa, just minutes from the West Coast Highway and Newport Beach. This afternoon I called Jimmy’s and asked to speak to Caleb—the man who answered the phone said that Caleb wasn’t working today and that he didn’t know when he would be in again because he was “on vacation in New York or something.”
If this all is true, I’m not sure what this kid is looking to get out of this relationship, but at nineteen I’m guessing he is far, far unprepared to be dealing with someone with this degree of mental illness. Guessing we won’t have to wait too long to find out.
