Amanda Bynes turns down Playboy radio


Amanda Bynes has turned down an offer to host her own daily radio show.

The 27-year-old actress was offered a full-time job by Playboy radio and despite being interested in the opportunity, the Easy A actress rejected the offer because she’s focusing on recording an album.

The troubled starlet, who was allegedly kicked out of her apartment in New York City last week after recently being charged with attempted evidence tampering, reckless endangerment and marijuana possession, told gossip website, "I want to [do the show]. But I can't because I'm recording an album!

"I'll go on their show for an interview when I'm promoting my album."

Playboy initially offered her a guest-hosting gig but decided to officially offer her a one-week trial to host her own hour-long daily radio show. If she impressed producers, the station was planning to offer her a one-year contract.

An insider said Playboy was also willing to provide Amanda with her own personal chauffeur to drive her to work every day and a skilled producer to help her organise content for the show.

Amanda, who underwent her second nose job over the weekend and is planning to have a third, recently revealed she’s determined to carve out a career as a rapper.

She wrote on Twitter last week, "Look forward to seeing me in music videos! I'm getting in shape and getting a nose job! I'm looking forward to a long and wonderful career as a singer/rapper!"
