Just when folks were ready to write Amanda Bynes off as more than a little looney, a former co-star and a record label exec have come to her rescue.
In an interview with OK! magazine, Bynes' friend and "Amanda Show" cast mate Drake Bell responded to the criticism swirling around the 27-year-old actress he refers to as a "sister."
