"She'd seemed to find a middle ground, but friends recently became concerned when they noticed her behavior starting to change for the worse. "She seemed depressed, and then anxious and erratic. She claims she's still taking her meds and is in treatment, but something sent her spiraling, and now she's hanging by a thread."

According to insiders, three years after making headlines for her outrageous antics, including starting a fire in a stranger's driveway, Amanda's life seemed to be on the upswing. She was on medication for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, and re-enrolled at California's Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising.

"She began taking classes in the fall, even though she was kicked out previously for showing up high as a kite. She seemed upbeat and talked about returning to TV," revealed the insider.

"The last time I saw her, she was feeding the homeless at a church, and she looked out of it. She's often confused as she's on a lot of meds," spilled an inside source.

Amanda — who starred in the TV series "All That" and "What I Like About You" — is also down over her stalled career, sources said. "She hasn't been able to get an acting job, let alone a meeting with a producer or director, which has increased her anxiety."

In June, she was granted control of her finances by the court, but sources claimed that may have been premature. "Her family is worried because her spending has gone through the roof," revealed the insider. "She's paranoid that people are spying on her, and she's taken to wearing wigs and other disguises even when she's at home! The fear is that she's having another mental breakdown."
