Thankful for: Her (possibly temporary) freedom from incarceration.
Somehow, the troubled child star avoided spending major time in jail this year in spite of her epic driving record. First, she was charged with DUI after she hit a stopped cop car. Then she was accused of a series of hit-and-run accidents. And finally, photographers snapped her smoking what appeared to be marijuana while behind the wheel of her car. But Amanda has maintained her innocence throughout, and the legal system has yet to lock her up.
