"We appreciate everyone's heartfelt support and we hope that she can get some privacy and the respect she deserves during this trying time," Lynn adds. "Both my husband and I love Amanda very much and we know that she will get through this situation."

The actress began her career as a cast member on the Nickelodeon television series All That, The Amanda Show, and What I Like About You.
