Amanda Peterson
Claim to fame: Amanda Peterson played opposite Patrick Dempsey in the 80' smash hit movie: Can't buy me love as the beautiful Cindy Mancini. Before that she was a child actor i.e. Annie the movie and some others.
 
 
Amanda Peterson
Where are they now? She made some movies and tv series in the years after "Cant buy me love" like: Love and Betrayal, Listen to Me, Posing: Inspired by Three Real Stories (... aka I Posed for Playboy, Hell Hath No Fury, Fatal Charm) and in 1995 her last movie Windrunner after which she disappeared...

Rumour #1 "Amanda is currently happily married and residing in the beautiful Napa Valley with her husband, David Hartley and their son Jonathon and daughter Katie."

Rumour #2 "Unfortunately Amanda's life isn't as glamouros as it used to be. She has an 18 month old daughter who was removed from her custody briefly a year ago due to Amanda breastfeeding her while she was doing drugs. Her ex-boyfriend, the baby's dad, was arrested for domestic violence against her. She also has a mental illness diagnosis. She had a lot going for her, but couldn't keep up with the lifestyle."

Which is right i don't know. If any of the rumours...

I met Amanda at a retro festival (retro sitcoms and movies) over in Santa Monica, California. She was sitting next to Erin Grey signing autographs. There were many celebrities there as well...She was so sweet and so down to earth.

I couldn't get over how nice she was! She was flattered that I remembered her when she guessed starred in Silver Spoons opposite Ricky Shroeder...She said "Oh my God Erin-can you believe that she actually remembers me way back when I did an episode with you on Silver Spoons!".

After I visited with her awhile-she gave me two photos of her and Patrick Dempsey that she autographed. We were talking when this slimy guy started hitting on her and I could she was uncomfortable with his advances and she gave me a look like oh boy I better get outta here as he followed her outside as she was leaving. Anyway...that was my experience meeting her! I was really impressed by how down to earth she was! Alexis V.

Stone, thank you for your update regarding Amanda. I hope all the rumors and stories about her on the internet are not true. If you see her again tell her that there are still fans that wish her all the best with her and her daughter Stella. We pray for her that she has find the peace she was looking for.
We cannot imagine the pressure that comes with being a star.

Amanda still lives in the Greeley area. She goes by the name Phyllis Amanda Peterson and was arrested in Weld Co. Colorado for DUI and Narcotic equip. possession on 5/3/12. I found this info on the Weld Co. Sheriffs website. I was such a huge fan of hers when I was a teenager. I'm devastated by what her life has become. There are pictures of her online with her daughter and she looks very disheveled and questionably wasted. She also posed for pictures for KRprodutions which are also on the company website. The KRproductions pictures were a month after her arrest and she looks pretty good. I'm pulling for you Amanda!

Looking up someone on the internet does not mean that you now know there whereabouts. There is a ton of false info. on people out there. Leave the poor woman alone already. Nobody knows what she is truly up to and I think that she wants it that way. Given the pictures posted from the photo shoot in Colorado, I highly doubt she is some crack addict. She is over 40 and barely has a wrinkle on her face. Years of substance abuse destroys your face. I am sure she is doing okay.

I truly have no idea what you say is right or wrong. I do not know or have ever met AP. She is a few years younger than me and I thought she was a very talented actress years ago who I thought would go on to a much bigger career. The only thing I know is that some of your info. is dead wrong so I why would I believe anything you post. Common sense tells me that she has had some issues in her personal life, but I would think that she would not want people going on the internet sharing any details of her private life. I hope she is doing okay. Just remember she is someone's mother, daughter, sister and aunt.

This is nonsense. I am so sick of these people scouring message boards and public records databases for information then posting it as if they are close with her. Any real friend would never do such a thing or need to. Most of the stuff out there is hearsay at best. Whether she has been in trouble or not, is none of anyone's **** business. Leave her alone already. Whether or not she talks to her family, she DOES have teenage (and younger) nieces and nephews out there that do not need to see this constant speculation about where and what she is up to.

I bet she does have a great story to tell, but it is her personal story. Hopefully someday she will write a book or do an interview or maybe even go back into acting. Only time will tell. It just seems wrong for all these people that do not even really know her or her family to continually post information about her that may or not be true. I cannot imagine they would want that done to them.

I saw her at a wedding of a mutual friend. She looked beautiful. She was a bridesmaid and honestly couldn't have looked any better. She looked together and very elegant. I have a pic, but can't seem to post it on here. She was sweet and adorable. Maybe she has a rough past? But seems to have it together now.

I am glad that she is doing well. Many people have rough patches they go through in their lives. What is most important is that you get through it and come back on the right side. Yes, parents are NOT divorced. Been married over 50 years. Hopefully she will find her way back to acting. Such a great talent. For all those comments about her appearance, she is over 40 and looks pretty **** good.
Pointer

Patty said:
October 16, 2013 2:16 PM
Its true she has been arrested for drugs and that she is estranged from her family. She had a bad hollywood experience and doesn't want to be part of that. I don't think the motorcycle pictures really do her justice. It is her, but normally, she isn't so heavily made up and honestly looks very similar to her cindy mancini days. All of that being said...does it make her a bad person? Or, does it make her a middle aged woman who has been through some dark times and just like all of us is trying to better herself? She is super talented. She should've had the opportunity to continue working as an actress. I wish shewould put her fear of judgement aside and take a leap of faith and try hollywood again. It's different now, and I think she could still be very successful at it.

Pointer
Patty said:
October 16, 2013 9:34 PM
I've been told she reads these regularly and searches for herself continually. My personal opinion is she is hurt. Hurt by what hollywood did to her, hurt she isn't close to her family, and hurt by strangers speculating about her demise. Think of the pain that would cause anybody! She's a good person, and trying hard to meet all the demands of life. This is not an unusual story for child actors....corey haim, river phoenix, amanda bynes...think about it. These babies are thrust into fame and cannot live a normal life after. I truly feel for Mandy and think she has so much potential if she can just get herself there, the possibilities for her are endless!
Pointer
GUEST said:
October 17, 2013 3:03 AM
Again...well said Patty. It would seem that you know her personally or know someone that does. If she does read the blogs and websites, she would know that the majority of the comments about her are positive. Longtime fans sharing positive memories, fans wishing her return to acting or fans just wishing her well. I would think that most people (besides those who follow these blogs) think that she was a talented actress back in the day and just went left acting and went off to live her life in private. Until I did some research, that is what I figured. Whether she was hurt or not, I feel that she is truly talented and if she wanted to make a comeback, she would probably.do fine. Seriously, look at some of the people out there on reality tv. People of all ages, sizes, backrounds...and they are accepted. The bulk of them have absolutely no talent. None.

Me said:

Thank you Patty.
Does it really matter how a person looks when he/she ages ? We all want to look great, but in the end it doesn’t matter how a person looks but how he/she is as a person.
I’ve been following the news around Amanda for some time now and I must agree that most of the people are positive about her. And that is what really counts…
Time and looks catches upon all of us.
Given that fact it is a pity for her that she is enstranged from her family. I don’t know the reason for that, but I hope that in the future she will get back in contact with them. If not for herself then for her daughter.
And yes maybe she had some brushes with the law in the past it doesn’t give people the right to speak badly about her, because we have no idea what has been through and it is so easy to judge her.
So Amanda if you read this I wish you would return to acting, but if not I wish you and your daughter a good life away from the madness from Hollywood

Why doesn't she post a pic and bio of herself if everything that is reported is not true? That would end the speculation. Obviously she does not have to do that, but if rumors bother her so much, set the record straight! Maybe the problem is that the rumors are actually true, so hiding is her only way of denying them.

I think why it's so frustrating for people to have no closure is because she was truly talented. Yes, she was pretty. But she was a solid actress. It seems like she could have gone very far. And then she disappeared. Many of us have good memories of her past works and wish her happiness and a good life. It would be nice to have some kind of update on how she is or what she's doing now. It would be great if she would guest star on some things or do something. But if that's not where her heart is, then I guess she can't do it. We may never know what happened in her life that caused her to step out of the public eye and remain such a mystery. I wish her the best and do hope that she knows we would love to hear from her when she's ready.

I totally think that if she wanted to, she could make some sort of comeback. Things are just so different today and I believe that people would be accepting of her. Who knows????

Maybe she is too damaged in the past. We don't know.
I'm still hoping for an autobiography of her. Maybe it's wishfull thinking.

What do you mean by "found"?? Do you know exactly who she is? It seemed that she was an acquaintance of Amanda's and posted some not so flattering pix of her and was telling personal info. about her and her daughter. No wonder Amanda was not happy, but I think this was awhile ago.

Based upon what I saw, I got the feeling that she was telling the truth also. Hopefully since it was almost 3 years ago that she is doing much better now. I saw a few pictures of the pictures that this person posted and it is hard to say if she was in a really bad way. She looked stressed out and tired with no make up on and the last real pictures of her were back in the early 90's. If there were more pictures, I would rather not see them. The pictures from 2012 were a lot better.

I have gone through all these posts and the bottom line is that nobody REALLY knows what happened to Amanda. Unless she decides to come forward and give some sort of interview or something, it still is mostly speculation and hearsay. Clearly there is some really strong evidence of drug use and trouble with the law, we have no idea what really went on and what might have caused these problems. Hopefully, for the sake of her children she is in different place today and is doing much better. It is really a shame because she was a very talented actress. I do only wish her the best.

Harris: Quitting a love and drug addiction
Posted by Daily Emerald Archives on Thursday, Oct. 7 at 12:00 am.
Editor’s note: The following is part two of a two-part series.

Sitting in the “Signature Cafe” of a Portland Safeway, under a set of pseudo-fancy lights, I watched Amanda Peterson and a friend walk in with a pair of chubby-cheeked bundles of joy.

Amanda, wearing a gray sweatshirt and black sweatpants, grabbed her coffee and eased into her seat, placing her baby’s veiled car seat right beside her.

It had been almost four years since I had last seen Amanda.

As we talked about her chaotic and heart-wrenching past, (often interrupted by the chuckles and excited squeals of her friend’s baby) she briefly stopped to lift up the pink blanket draped over the car seat; unveiling a soft, squishy little girl who gently locked eyes with me for almost a minute.

Amanda points to her in light of her two years of pain and says, “I got a blessing out of it.”

She put on that radiating smile I remember so well…

After slipping out the back door and escaping her enraged father, Amanda and her lover fled on foot towards a nearby friend’s house. Old Jack-Rabbit Robbie was on the run again, from the police and now Amanda’s family.

A love-struck Amanda was right in the action. She didn’t know where she’d end up — she just knew she wanted to be somewhere she was loved, somewhere she fit in. Robbie was that beckoning call for her, she thought.

They arrived to their destination shortly, and after telling their friend that they needed to skip town, they were off to Beaver Creek City, Oregon (aka the middle of nowhere).

“We just booked, we just left … we disappeared,” said Amanda. Their friend hooked Robbie up with some meth and he smoked it right in front of her when they got to Beaver Creek.

She’d never seen meth before. She thought it was a form of weed.

He convinced her that he was in complete control of his situation. He was, you know, a casual meth user, only doping in stressful situations.

Watching him use those drugs marked the death of Robbie as she knew him. From then on, he was a monster.

He would use drugs with bunches of other people and she would be the only sober one in the house. He would call her a “little girl” and take advantage of her naivety.

He forced her to re-live her childhood; she was again the outcast.

Robbie never let her try meth. She would watch as everyone tweaked out and her naive curiosity only grew.

After being in Beaver Creek for a while, they grew paranoid and fled to Woodburn. It was here that she begged Robbie to let her try it. She was just tired of not fitting in. Tired of being a little girl.

“He would make me feel two inches tall,” Amanda said.

She persuaded him to actually let her try. Everyone else was high, so she didn’t want to be sober.

He gave her the nod. She took her first hit.

The tweaking. The paranoia. The fidgeting. She felt them all — but Robbie and his friends all fell asleep.

“So I’m up all night, high — again, the oddball,” Amanda said. Getting high eventually became her way of muting out all the pain she felt; she was running from everyone she loved.

From there, her and Jack-Rabbit Robbie bounced all around Oregon, fleeting randomly with growing paranoia and taking hit after hit with the addiction growingand growing.

It wasn’t until that fateful night where Robbie was arrested that she was reconnected with family and friends.

Robbie was sent to rehab, but being the slippery fellow he is, escaped it when he was told Amanda couldn’t visit him. He was brought back shortly.

Amanda found out she was pregnant just two weeks after he told her he wanted nothing to do with her. She returned to her parents’s house and cut off everyone.

She spent those next months drowning in sorrow with the baby’s birth growing closer and closer. It only made it worse when she found out that Robbie already had a new girlfriend.

“Every kick I felt (from the baby), I cried a little more,” she said.

Little Hailey was born on March 25th. She saved Amanda’s life: forcing her to quit smoking cigarettes and stop using drugs. She is now back in school and has nothing to do with Robbie — her worst addiction.

“It was a lot easier to get away from the drugs than him,” Amanda sternly stated with a small smirk on her face.

That is the girl I once remembered — a naive little girl, turned adverse-young-mom.

I was just wondering if it is really true that AP was/is a meth addict? I have no knowledge as to whether she is or not, but was curious. From what I have read I think she has done some drugs, but meth is hardcore. From the pictures I saw from 2012, she does not look like a meth addict to me. She looks thin, but not emaciated. Face looks very good for over 40. Barely any wrinkles. You really cant tell what the teeth look like, but overall she looks pretty **** good for her age. I've seen a couple of meth addicts and she just does not look like they do. Not trying to start trouble, just was a little curious.

Guys..I in no way want to take away from what everyone has said on this board and I am truly concerned for Amanda's well being. I am not here to say I know her or anyone close to her. I thought she was a very beautiful talented actress. I usually don't do this but got caught up in the whole debate and wanted to find out for myself. I'm 99 percent sure that the Phyllis Amanda Peterson that people are talking about is true. It is true she was arrested for OWI and drug paraphernalia posession in 2012. It is a really sad thing and I hope she gets the help she needs. That is all I'm really going to say about how I found this out to protect her privacy. It is great to show your love for her and support her but l hope everyone gives her the privacy she obviously wants. Amanda..If you read this I wish the best for you! Stay strong.

I think that almost everyone would agree that the arrest record from 2012 is legitimate, although we really don't the exact details of the arrest. What makes it sad for me is that it is a fairly recent arrest. It is about a year and half ago so still hopeful that AP is doing much better today. Ironically the only recent pictures that she agreed to pose for were shot shortly after that arrest. I personally think those pictures were great and really did not show someone that might have a serious drug problem. I think that she looked healthy and fit. Some people forget that she is 42, not old, but nowhere near 16 when CBML was out.

I agree with some of the posters on this board that the pix from 2012 do not show someone who may be hooked on meth. Hope that she is doing well today. Really hope that she reconnects with her family to if she is still estranged from them. I am around the same age and my parents are getting older. You never know what can happen. Stay strong Amanda and I really hope to see you try acting again. You were great.

Without a doubt this board is filled with speculation, opinions, rumors, hearsay, and possible slander and defamation of character. There really can't be posts about sightings because there really have not been any. She was an extremely talented young actress who just disappeared from acting, not from earth. Amanda does not in ANYWAY owe anyone any personal information about herself or her family. Absolutely NOT. She is not obligated to share ANY personal details about her life at all. I think that are some fans who admired her and just were curious about what happened and what would cause her to walk away from the beginnings of a promising career almost twenty years ago. I myself was curious also, but that was it. I have no interest in talk of drug use and arrests. I only hope she is doing well in her life.

I do have an update. I was a big fan of the tv show "A Year in the Life" and someone uploaded 3 episodes on youtube back in December. The quality is not great, but it was nice being able to see these episodes. The episodes were from a mini-series of the show which preceded the actual show. Amanda does not have a lot of screen time, but she did a really good job. I think she got more screen time when the show became a regular series.

I never knew or met Amanda, but I grew up in the same town as her first cousin in Connecticut. He was a nice guy and sometimes would talk about Amanda and her older brother and sister. Tragically he died in a car accident in the mid 1990s. He and Amanda were the same age and I often wondered if they were ever close.

I personally think she can be one of hollywoods biggest should she return. ok quiz time what famous tv show did her hubby do the photography for. and btw up all night I do not drink im hooked on energy drinks but Im also raising 5 kids on my own plus own my own business. plus real estate. so my minds always racing.

Nobody has a perfect history. Everyone makes mistakes and does things that they regret. I think most people who post here are just wondering how she is doing today. Although, I do agree that people should not be posting false information about Amanda or her family. That is totally wrong.

In regards to the pic of Amanda and her daughter at the bar. What is the big deal ? Daughter is adorable, AP looks tired and has no makeup on. Maybe a little bit too much sun, but totally normal for someone close to 40. Why do people assume that picture means that she is on drugs. I do not get that at all from that picture.

Kudos to bountyman33 for sticking up for Amanda and to the others that have too. I am in my mid 40s and have been through it all. Hard partying times, failed relationships, job loss and on and on. But today I am in a good place. Great wife, great kids and good job. We all have rough times, but most of us do not have to do it under the scrutiny of outsiders. It seems like she is in a good place and that is all that matters. Let her live her life in peace and quiet. She was/is really talented and extremely pretty. That is what I remember not some pictures of her having a bad day.

Jesus. I do not see what the big deal is about Amanda Peterson's whereabouts. She has not done a single thing in over 20 years. She is over 40 and anyone born after 1990 would not have a clue who she was. The work that she did was very good, but the last thing she did was when she was around 24? Obviously she had her reasons for not continuing to act. Not a big deal. The continued speculation about her personal life is pointless. Although, I do not know why she feels the need to hide. I doubt a stampede of people would come and track her down if she actually spoke out and put some sort of closure to the questions about her whereabouts. Just a thought. She does still pretty hot though. If she ever decided to return, there would be a place for her talent and looks.

I guess it's Greeley, according to info here. And Gumbel mentions that the critics trashed the film I think. Then you say you were surprised because all of you had so much fun shooting it.

I also do not understand posts from the "lawnmower." I do agree that nobody knows amanda or what she is about. I guess there are some fans who are stuck in the past and can't separate amanda from her movie characters. I am not one of those fans. Just a curious fan who has heard some of the "rumors" and was wondering if she was doing okay. Thats where it ends. Although, I can only hope that maybe someday she returns to acting or something else. She was truly talented.

What the hell is going on? About a month ago somebody who claimed they knew Amanda was posting that she was married to a photographer. The guy posted some interesting stuff for a couple of days and then we never heard from him ago. Although the story of her being married to the photographer and living Colorado seemed plausible. Then just yesterday someone was claiming that she has been living for six years on some obscure island in Europe. And of course today, some low life posts some horrible story about her. Jesus. Why post something so vile about her. I really wish she would come forward at some point because the stories about her are getting out of control.

I wish some of the posters would just be honest. There is and always been public information out there about her and her family, just like the rest of us. In her bios it states who her parents and siblings are and some basic information. I do not think it is a big deal if somebody posts that her father was a former physician in Colorado. I think that information has been out there for over 25 years. Nobody is trying to bring them into any pointless posting and conversations on the internet. It would seem that Amanda wants her privacy and always has. She is a woman in her 40s now. The people out there clinging to the image of a 16 year old teenager girl need to get a life.

Howdy Amanda Peterson stalkers. I would like to take this opportunity to suggest a possible location of where she may have made her abode and new role she may be assuming to assist in concealing her identity. I’ll first explain where I thought of this fascinating theory. It was when I was pursuing my quest to avoid Asian people by dining in a Chinese-less restaurant. It was then this amazing thought came to me. That is; what if Amanda moved to Scotland and assumed the identity of the Loch Ness Monster. Let’s face it. One cannot disprove the existence of the Loch Ness Peterson. Maybe her next movie will be called Can’t buy me Purina Loch Ness Monster Chow. I hope that Loch Ness monster investigators will look into this matter and hopefully bring the readers of this website long awaited answers.

Hello dummies. In effort to verify information presented on this webpage, I travelled to an Indian reservation located at an undisclosed location near area 51. I met with the tribal chief named Chief Running Mountain and his son named Walking Hill. They were smoking a peace pipe at the time. I decided to greet them in their native language by saying “how”. They replied you simply light one end and inhale through the other. At that time I also presented the chief with a book as a gift entitled “White Man Bring Good”. I then asked the chief what he knew about Amanda Peterson. He replied that an ancient tribal legend indicates that this person now lives as an aquatic creature in a body of water in a land where men wear skirts. He mentioned that his tribe believes it is bad luck to talk any further about this subject. Then he became enraged and told me to get the hell off the reservation. I thought to myself what’s he going to do if I don’t comply; call the cavalry? However I didn’t want to ruffle his feathers (Get it? hint; the headdress) so I departed. Is the chief’s statement evidence that Amanda could be the Loch Ness Monster? Are you a dork just for reading this? Perhaps answers to these questions may never be known.

The last update on her were the "biker" pictures from July 2012. And those have even disappeared from the photographers site. I personally think that she looked good in those pix. She was around 41 when they were shot and she definitely did not look like some strung out junkie. Looked pretty **** good for a woman over 40. It seems as though she wants her privacy and is not willing to come out with any news or update. Probably just trying to raise her daughter and stay out of the spotlight.

Patty: whether people think that you are Amanda or not, I do hope that you are being honest about Amanda doing great. I think that most of the people that follow this board, myself included, have been hoping that she is happy and healthy. To me, it makes no difference what mistakes she has made. Everyone makes mistakes and screws up at some point in their life. Why should AP be held to a different standard. It would be so great to see any picture of her today and how great she does look. I feel that it may not happen though.

Well said guest.
Great to hear from you Patty. Welcome back.
I agree with guest. In spite of rumors thtat Amanda is taking steps at her own
pace I don't see it happen that we hear or see anything from herself again.
And that would be a pity.

I have a picture of her, but would never publicly show it without her consent. She looks awesome though. Posters need to remember...people in the public eye have signed up for an unwritten obligation of being criticized, watched, followed, etc...when you are out of the public eye, you deserve privacy. Just like you...mandy does too. She has been out of the spotlight for 20 years. I believe someday she will creep back into the celebrity world, but until that happens, she deserves whatever life she chooses. Be it public or private.

Well said Patty. I have been one that has always believed in her right to privacy. She does not owe anyone anything. Because it has been such a long time since her last work, I guess curiosity is getting the best of me. She was a great beauty back then and extremely talented. I am sure she still is gorgeous today. If she ever does decide to come back into the public eye I am sure there are plenty of fans, myself included, that would welcome her with open arms. I do hope that she does read SOME of these posts because I think that they are mostly positive. Of course, there are the sporadic postings from some of the morons who could really care less about her well being at all.

Hey Amanda, my name is Clyde and I am 17. Yesterday I stumbled upon your movie, Can't buy me love. I literally loved it! First of all you are smoking hot and that face of yours is just CABOOOM!!! You have that charisma, that attracts people to you even through the screen. Keep up the work, I will watch your other movies and I don't mind whether you are not acting anymore. Everyone conducts his life in the way he or she pleases.

See ya Amanda!

Love,

Clyde

P.S.

I live in Europe :)

When you combine "Peterson" and "Mandy" you kind of get the name "Patty."

I think that the niece you are referring to is in fact Amanda's first daughter over which she lost custody.

The whole story seems very sad. For anyone to lose custody of their child is heartbreaking. I wonder if she ever got some sort of custody back. Who got custody of the first daughter? It does not quite make sense that she lost custody of the first but is able to raise and have custody of the second ? Was Amanda married to either of the Fathers of these two girls?

Me and my partner watched Cant buy me love for the first time as it was voted as one of the most romantic movies of all time.

Found it funny, charming and warm.

Amanda if you do read these message boards you made your Mark in that movie and a talent to match. You and Patrick Dempsey were a great match in terms of characters and acting.

Ignore all the negative ******** on these threads courtesy of internet trolls as they would put down their own children to make them self's feel important.

Hope your happy and well and thank you for the nights entertainment last night with regards Can't buy me love, great movie with a great actress called Amanda Peterson.

The United Kingdom salutes you :)

There's no denying it..she's an absolute doll on the screen. Plus a string of stunning performances, she deserved to have had a stellar movie or tv career.
However, your choices are yours alone and no one else's. She left it for a life she chose, and probably was more comfortable doing so and withdrawing from the public eye.
Like myself, I'm sure she is missed by most everyone else on the posts online... It'll be good to see if she ever returns to the public eye, acknowledging her work and her seemingly international fans, as a post 80s Hollywood survivor. We all know its racked up lots of tragic casualties, but life is too short to let that get the better of you.

All of the above is exactly why she has disappeared. Judgmental, and rumor starting people that expect a star to be perfect, and uphold the image people see on the big screen. The thing is, all of you fell in love with "Cindy Mancini", and no one seems to care about "Amanda", other than oh she got a DUI etc. So what? We are human, Amanda is human, and she's no different than any of you. Just my two cents.

Amanda has an older brother Jim who is a senior pastor at a Baptist Church in Michigan. He is a pretty charismatic guy. I live in the area and went to his church once with a friend. Great public speaker. Talks a little bit about family in his sermon. According to my friend, he has never directly acknowledged Amanda or anything about her, but has mentioned his "sister" in stories about their childhood in Colorado. Seems like a decent guy.

What makes me laugh when reading some these comments are people who get annoyed when there are comments made about the ' meth '. But this is a ' Whatever happened to a person' site, it isn't really a fan page site? I could understand the anger over the horrible comments by idiots. But I for one, wondered what happened to the lady ' Laura, IOGX from IMBH ' as there are 3 pictures off Amanda on a foreign site. Also all the information has been deleted on IMBH for IOGX except for a bit on "broadreader" and if click on her name IOGX she even says it was not deleted by her and she wasn't being nasty just concerned.
Personally I don't think Amanda looked that bad in them, bit thinner but she was in her late 30's or even 40.
Really I feel she has sorted herself out now at the present, hopefully with the Internet being very widely used now, we may hear from her soon? As there seems to be people ' guest, patty ' who know her or even could be her? on this site

Sorry I have to disagree with you there, IOGX was thrown off IMDb and all her messages had been Removed, I saw about 10 ' Removed ' Messages from her and the Replys to IOGX are still on IMDb from present members. It does seem she was genuinely concerned for Amanda's Daughter at the time. This IOGX ' Laura ' was even pictured with Amanda as there is actually 3 Pictures of that night in the Bar.

I just think it is very odd between 2010 to June 2012 there was loads off Threads, Rumor's off Amanda and many things had got Removed. Then as the update Biker Picture's of Amanda got shown it seems very quiet on IMDb now and other sites now.

And we haven't heard from Amanda since, how bizarre??

Also why did you say Greeley? It could off been Fort Collins?

Whether she knew Amanda or not or whether she was concerned for her daughter, any real friend would not take to message boards and post pictures and information about her. Someone that was close to her or her family would never do such a thing. Personally I think IOGX was just trying to exploit her and some of her problems. I think Amanda just wants to lay as low as possible. I do not know what the deal was with the biker pictures, but I think that they showed that she is still in pretty good shape. Does not look like a strung out junkie to me. She was 41 in those pictures. I hope that she and her daughter are doing okay.

@dazz: it was Greely. And there are more pictures of that day. I've seen them. From Amanda but also from her daughter together with IOGX.
It wasn't going that well with Amanda that day.
Also it ended not in a nice way.
In my opinion the biker pictures were only to set records straight and was an attempt to stop the rumors by showing herself that it was going great at that time. Maybe also in an answer of the arrest for DUI in the month before the shoot. Wo knows ?
For the record I think that IOGX was really concerned about Amanda.

For the life of me, I cannot understand why the discussion continues regarding some pictures from over 4 years ago. CLEARLY, not one of Amanda's better days. Jesus, we all have plenty of times that we totally regret. It seems that people are taking this night in particular and saying that this was indicative of what her life was at that time. I totally disagree with the thought that she put the biker pictures out to set the record straight. I think that is how she looked at that time and was not trying to substitute those pictures for the ones from the night in the bar. I do not think anyone really knows what is or has been going on with Amanda and that is the way she wants it.
