When most heard the very strict rules and guidelines laid out for Amber Portwood,via her probation, many assumed she would definitely break one of the rules at one point or another, but very few could have predicted she would be screwing up this quickly.
Just two weeks after a judge finally released her from jail to go live with her grandparents, the Teen Mom star has already broken one of her probation terms by failing to take a drug test.
According to TMZ, Amber, 21, has been doing great since her release, until Monday when she failed to provide a urine sample for her mandatory daily drug testing.
And those familiar with the law will tell you that a failure to provide a sample, automatically counts as a failed drug test, which could mean BIG trouble for Amber.
She was sentenced to serve five years in prison back in January for a drug conviction, with the judge suspending her sentence as long as she followed a very long list of rules and guidelines, which included home detention, a curfew, requirement to get a regular job, and enrollment in a halfway drug house.
Amber is due in court today for her weekly check-in, during which, she will be at the mercy of the judge. Legally the judge could decide to have her begin serving her five-year prison sentence, though that is unlikely to happen.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? ARE AMBER’S PROBATION RULES TOO STRICT? SURPRISED SHE’S SCREWING UP THIS EARLY?
Another day, another drama, in the land of Teen Mom…
Vying with Amber Portwood for title of Most Incarcerated MTV Star, Jenelle Evans found herself back in the Brunswick County clink yesterday on charges of misdemeanor stalking. Eonline.com is reporting that the 20-year-old mom’s recent arrest is due to accusations made by her former boss James Duffy, which resulted in an arrest warrant.
Jenelle’s agent, Leo Daniels (remind me again why she needs an agent?) claims that Jenelle turned herself into authorities in order to clear her name after returning home from the Teen Mom reunion in New York City.
He tells E!, “Duffy filed cyberstalking charges against Jenelle. She has not posted anything about him in a long time. Duffy came up with these accusations…Jenelle was aware of the warrant because Duffy posted all about it on Facebook and Twitter on Friday. Jenelle was in New York over the weekend. When she returned home, she went up to see what was going on. She was read the charges and they let her go.”
Jenelle and her old boss have participated in a hateful merry-go-round of nasty Facebook and Twitter harassment after Duffy, allegedly, posted pictures online of Jenelle’s wild, party girl ways. As if anyone was shocked by that. Yesterday’s arrest marked the third time this year the young mom has been put behind bars…and it’s barely March! This time around, Jenelle was released a few hours after she was booked, having to post $1000 bond. She is due back in court on March 23.
Also speaking out on the arrest, is Jenelle’s attorney Dustin Sullivan (I do get why she needs a lawyer, just not an agent), who tells Radaronline.com, “She was arrested and posted a $1,000 unsecured bail.”
Dustin continues, insisting, “[Duffy]’s just retaliating against Jenelle. The charges have no merit. This is just absurd.”
“I’m not concerned with the affection on her probation,” he says about her current arrest.
Fear not though, Jenelle seems to at least have a sense of humor about the situation (although I am not sure that’s a good thing), tweeting yesterday, “Well I’m having a fantastic morning lmao. Bye bye twitter for a month :(.”
A picture of Jenelle’s most recent mug shot is below.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF JENELLE’S MOST RECENT ARREST? IS HER OLD BOSS JUST BEING VINDICTIVE? HOW MANY MORE TIMES DO YOU PREDICT SHE’LL BE BACK IN JAIL THIS YEAR?

After being attacked outside a West Virginia movie theater by three women, Leah Messer is terrified to leave her house, according to sources!
Two weeks ago, Leah and her fiancé Jeremy Calvertwere walking in a parking lot, when three women approached her. “The women started screaming, ‘Look, it’s that bitch from Teen Mom!’” an insider tells In Touch Weekly. The women then followed the couple, and according to Leah, beat her “viciously,” bruising her face and chest.
After the incident, Leah has become seized by fear that something may happen to her again. “Leah’s now terrified to leave her home,” the insider explains. “There are just so many haters.”
The attack has left a precarious Leah, already distraught over a recent miscarriage, depressed and according to friends, has pushed her over the edge. “She is on the verge of a nervous breakdown,” the source adds. Hopefully things will improve for the mom of twins!
Moving on to other Teen Mom 2 news, Jenelle Evans is still dealing with custody issues! The tumultuous Jenelle, who after a string of recent arrests, confessed to being diagnosed with bipolar disorder, now worries that the diagnosis will keep her from parenting Jace.
Jenelle has been seeing a doctor recently and is now on medication to help control her violent mood swings, which have contributed to her unruly and dangerous behavior in the past. But Jenelle is, surprisingly, thinking ahead and worrying that she won’t be capable of caring for Jace long-term!
“She is really, really scared,” an insider shares with Reality Weekly. “Jenelle is worried she’ll end up going off the deep end. It’s her nightmare that she is going to end up in the psych ward.” Jenelle’s fear is exacerbated by her brother’s diagnosis. “My brother, he has bipolar and schizophrenia,” Jenelle recently confessed to Dr. Mohammed, the Medical Director at Malibu Horizon Drug Alcohol Rehab Treatment Center
Jenelle is so concerned about her mental stability, she is wondering if she should relinquish custody permanently! “It’s one of the reasons she’s wondered if she should give up Jace,” the source admits. “She’s that scared she won’t be able to take care of him down the road.”
Apparently, Jenelle’s fears have been haunting her in her dreams and she grows more afraid by the day. “She’s been calling herself crazy,” the source adds. “She spends a lot of time in tears.”
Friends also worry about Jenelle’s long-term mental health. “She has always been off,” says a former pal. “She gets something on her mind and gets very obsessed with it. She can’t sleep or calm down.”
Hopefully both Leah and Jenelle can get their demons and behaviors under control for the sake of their children! At least Jenelle has the support of her mother, Barbara Evans, to raise Jace.
And finally, while the second season of Teen Mom 2 only concluded last week, MTV has already began filming on a new season of the series! Kailyn Lowrytweeted the photo below this week which shows MTV camera crews filming her along with her friends. No word yet on when the new season will air.
As we reported yesterday, MTV has also greenlighted Teen Mom 3 which will likely feature some of the cast members from the upcoming 16 and Pregnant season.
ARE LEAH’S FEARS JUSTIFIED? SHOULD JENELLE GIVE UP CUSTODY OF JACE OR JUST TRY TO MANAGE HER MENTAL ILLNESS? DO YOU BELIEVE JENELLE WILL BE ABLE TO GET HER ACT TOGETHER AND BE A MOTHER?
Guess what – 16 & Pregnant is back! The fourth season of the controversial show will chronicle twelve new teen girls, as they struggle through pregnancy and the dramatic ups and downs associated with having a child as a young parent – including navigating complicated relationships with parents, boyfriends, and friends.
This season will continue to show a variety of different choices the moms make, from adoption, abortion, and choosing to raise their child alone or with a partner.
One teen determines if adoption is the right choice for her child, because she fears she will be a single mother due to her boyfriends unreliability. Another teen mother will choose to keep her child while her sister, also pregnant, opted to have an abortion. And of course, one mother will be forced to put her college plans on hold after she decides to raise her baby.
The teens will also struggle in relationships with their own parents, who are often conflicted on how to help and support their child through teen pregnancy and parenthood. One teen will fight to raise her baby while dealing with her drug addicted parent, and another girl’s mother disapproves of her child’s father. There will be “baby daddy” drama, as the girls learn that being a teen mom is much harder than it looks! Which, you would think after many seasons of watching this show they would have figured out by now. Apparently, not.
Additionally, MTV has decided to take on Teen Mom 3! Hopefully, this crop will fare better than the originals and the juniors! I’m looking at you, Portwood and Evans!
A trailer for the new season of 16 & Pregnant is below!
The new season of 16 & Pregnant premiers on MTV Tuesday, March 27 at 10:00 p.m. ET.

Last night, we bid farewell to the girls of the second Teen Mom…with the help of Dr. Drew of course!
After putting Jenelle Evans and Kailyn Lowry in the hot seat last week, Drew has Chelsea Houska on the sofa. She reveals that her relationship with Adam is civil, but does include hooking up with him, Dr. Drew pronounces it not healthy. Wow. I think I could do his job. After recapping Chelsea’s season, I wish Dr. Drew would ream her for riding on Adam’s motorcycle without a helmet. Instead he applauds her for her accomplishments…which I guess she deserves. He mentions her former friend, Megan, who recently had her baby, and Chelsea is quick to say that she hates that her friend is missing out on her youth like she did.

No, no, no! Corey’ Simms‘ camo hat seems to be prohibiting rational thoughts from coming out of that noggin of his!
The current issue of Us Weekly has those close to the jilted Teen Dad–whose wife of six months Leah Messer confessed to cheating on him a week before they were married–speculating that he wants her back! The couple’s divorce was highlighted on the final episodes of this season’s Teen Mom 2 after Leah spilled the infidelity beans, claiming Corey wouldn’t have sex with her in the weeks leading up to their wedding. Well, if that is the case, her cheating must have been justified! #dumbestexcuseever
The pair’s divorce was finalized in June of last year, with Leah jumping straight into another relationship, another cohabitation, and another engagement rather quickly with new beau Jeremy Calvert. Leah even tragically suffered a miscarriage after getting pregnant by Jeremy. However, none of this information seems to dissuade Corey from wanting to reconcile with the mother of his twin daughters.
A “friend” of his explains to the magazine, “Corey is still crazy for Leah. He doesn’t want her to marry Jeremy.”
Another source laments, “He did all he could to make it work, as she’s the only girl he ever loved.”
Said source must also be a mutual friend of Leah’s, because he/she believes that Corey’s hopes are a lost cause, sharing, “Leah will always care about Corey, but she’s happy with Jeremy. Watching this season made her relive their problems.” Their problems. Could “their problems” have something to do with the fact that Leah cheated on her groom-to-be and then blamed the demise of their marriage on him not wanting to buy a new trailer? Nah, probably different problems…
Not so fast there, Lauren! Apparently Leah has amped up her “no sex before the wedding is a valid reason to cheat” excuse to include–dum da dum dum–porn! Specifically, Corey was watching porn instead of bedding his fiance. Now, I don’t know about you, dear readers, but I am shocked and appalled. Corey watches porn? Corey, the young twenty-something male who didn’t want a trailer upgrade and needed subtitles, watches porn? If she had told me he read classic novels until late into the night so he was too tired for sexy time or even that his Sudoku addiction interfered with his libido, I’d believe her…but porn? That’s a stretch.
In a sneak peek video posted below, the couple is seen discussing their sex life (or apparently lack thereof) with Dr. Drew in a premiere for tomorrow night’s final episode. While Corey claims the pair had a very active and normal sex life, Leah maintains that he wasn’t very affectionate towards her in the weeks leading up to their wedding due to all the porn he was watching.
“I felt like you was looking at her, and thinking…I mean, I kinda felt like that was cheating,” Leah tells Corey during the Drew-led conversation. Eh, maybe, but not as much cheating as actually having intercourse with someone other than your partner. But that’s just me.
Enough on the second installment of Teen Moms, the original Teen Moms need some attention too! Realityweeklymagazine.com is reporting that Corey isn’t the only one from the franchise chasing down an old flame. Apparently, Maci Bookout has her sights set on ex-boyfriend and baby daddy Ryan Edwards in light of her recent break-up with long-time love Kyle King. You recall that the pair didn’t make it after alleged pressure on Kyle from Maci to marry her ASAP. Of course, does anyone think that Maci was ever really over Bentley’s dad?
Yet another “source” close to the young mom reveals, “He’s always been the one. She’s still in love with Ryan. A part of it is definitely the chemistry — she thinks he’s really hot.”
Ahh, young love. I wonder if these girls will ever learn that being “hot” isn’t the most important building block in a healthy, stable relationship. Probably not.
The conclusion of Teen Mom 2 airs tonight on MTV at 10 PM ET.
DO YOU THINK COREY REALLY WANTS TO RECONCILE WITH LEAH? WILL THE TWO GET BACK TOGETHER? THOUGHTS ON HIS PORN WATCHING LEADING TO HER CHEATING? WAS MACI EVER REALLY OVER RYAN?
The good news? After spending close to two months in jail for violating her probation, via drug possession, the MTV reality star will finally be released today according to TMZ. The bad news? Amber was released because the halfway house, Sister 2 Sister Ministries, Amber was supposed to go to, has now refused to accept her.
Their reason? They apparently felt Amber, 21, is a handful and abhorred too much negative energy. This means for the time being, Amber is able to live with her grandparents… and continue to film for MTV’s Teen Mom.
Had Amber been accepted into the halfway house, she would be required to stay there for at least eight months, during which, she would also have to get a regular 9 – 5 job and would be unable to film for MTV.
“Amber is so happy and relieved that she won’t have to live at the halfway house,” her mother, Tonya Portwood, told E! News on Thursday. “And now she will get to spend more time with her daughter, which is what this was all about anyway.”
Amber is, however, not completely out of the woods yet or even close to it. Following her release today, she’ll be required to wear an electronic monitoring bracelet. Plus, the judge is still requiring her to apply for residency at another halfway home, a process which could take months.
As reported earlier this week, despite stating last year that she no longer wanted to appear on Teen Mom, Amber has had a change of heart as sources close to her reveal she needs the MTV income after spending most of her money on legal fees. Amber will also be required to take regular drug tests while she lives with her grandparents.
Amber is still on probation for five years and on a suspended five year prison sentence, meaning any failed drug test or probation violation could lead to a five year stint in prison.

TELL US – IS IT TIME FOR MTV TO CUT TIES WITH AMBER?
It’s the curtain call for the girls of Teen Mom 2, and we can only hope they have learned from their many struggles during the recent installment of the franchise. It’s doubtful, but we can hope! Last night the moms sat down with, the one-and-only, Dr. Drew Pinsky, to discuss the hardships they faced during their sophomore season.
Dr. Drew begins with a recap of the season. Sidebar, are Kailyn and Leah going to the same hairdresser? Their hairstyles are shades of off-white and stark white, respectively. After watching the footage, both are already teary. Kailyn claims she is upset watching her friend get upset. The show has brought the pair closer.
Chelsea reveals that Aubree loves doing her hair and make-up. It appears that maybe Chelsea was sitting a seat over from the blondes in the salon. She has also been visiting Year Round Brown, as she’s very tan. Jenelle expounds on what Chelsea has said about Aubree and Jace…apparently the toddlers are either fighting or making out when they are in the same room. The therapy session cuts to commercial, and of course the first advertisement (of many, I’m sure) introduces the newest teens on 16 and Pregnant. #Depressing.
