Amanda Bynes may be silent when it comes to discussing her current health status to the public, but one of her old pals, Drake Bell, has received an update he is excited to share. When The Gossip Table caught up with the 27-year-old actor, he had nothing but the best to say about his former Nickelodeon co-star. “I’m really happy to see that she’s doing well,” he tells us.
“She’s a great friend of mine and I’m a huge fan of her.” When asked if he reached out to Amanda following her rehab stint and her return home in December, he replied, “Yeah, I have. She’s well so it’s nice to hear.” On March 21, Amanda shared pics from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandise Debut Runway Show in L.A. where she is currently taking classes at the school’s Orange County campus. The 27-year-old budding fashion designer posed with her mom Lynn and dad Rick Bynes looking happy and healthy—and back to normal! “I reached out to her a while ago and I hope she’s doing okay,” Drake told TMZ back in November. “As soon as she’s allowed to make contact again, I’d like to make sure she’s alright…She’s been a good friend for years.”
