Amanda Bynes‘ downward spiral has been dotting the news stories since her infamous Drake tweet back in March. On the latest “Kris,” the host and special co-host Ryan Seacrest discuss how Bynes is maybe finally getting the help she needs.

“This is something that for me, as a mom, makes me very sad. But happy that she’s getting perhaps the help that she needs for one reason or another,” says Kris Jenner. “I’ve always said, I don’t know what goes on behind the scenes, I’m not there. I don’t want to be the one that’s quick to judge and be real negative. I like to look at the glass half full. I’m really glad that whatever’s going on this would be the start of a new beginning for her.”

“Some people are comparing what she may be going through to what Britney [Spears] went through a few years back and you look at what Britney was able to do and to overcome,” adds Seacrest. “She’s in a great place now. I think she’s better than she’s been in a long time. Hopefully the right people get to be around Amanda and get her on track as well.”

Jenner also adds that her famous daughter Kim Kardashian is hoping Bynes gets her life turned around.

“Kim loves Amanda, she’s obsessed with her and really wants her to be fabulous and get well,” says Kris.

“That’s what moms across the country think about their kids. They want their kids to be around the right people and the right friends and the right group becuase that does have an impact,” says Seacrest.
