Amanda Bynes' psychiatric treatment at UCLA Medical Center apparently costs a lot. According to TMZ, the "Easy A" actress needs to pay as much as $3,500 a day for both treatment and living expenses.

Previously, the judge has granted her doctors' request to put her under long-term treatment. With the order, Amanda may stay in the facility up to one year. The doctors, however, are said planning to treat her for 2 months before giving her back to her family. Treatment for one year will cost $1,277,500 and her insurance does not cover all of the sum.

Amanda was hospitalized on a 5150 hold after she allegedly set a fire on a stranger's driveway in July. Daniel Herman of Chinga Chang Records, who contacted Amanda to negotiate a record deal before her hospitalization, spoke of the former Nickelodeon actress. "I've talked with Amanda a few times and she wants out. She sounded normal, lucid, chill and focused," he told Radar Online.

It seems to me she is being gouged. That is a lot of money for one day. Hopefully, someone is going over the bill, line by line.

So what's the point? If she had cancer, would there even be a report on it? Yes, it's expensive to stay in a hospital whether she's in for mental illness or cancer.

How is this any different than someone who is in a recovery unit, with no health insurance? TMZ stops at no bounds to shame someone who is innocent; a victim of a torturous childhood in the spotlight, which led to substance abuse, abandonment, and hospitalization!
