While Amber Portwoodhad publicly expressed her wish to end her career with MTV’s mega hit show, Teen Mom, citing she felt “exploited,” it is now becoming extremely likely that Amber will never appear on another episode of the series.
If you recall, Amber was sentenced by an Indiana judge recently to either do five years in prison or a stint in a drug program. Amber wisely chose the latter and will be heading into the Sister 2 Sister Ministries program any day now, pending evaluation.
While the judge did not give Amber, 21, a clear time frame of how long she needed to be in the program, TMZ is reporting Amber was ordered to live in a halfway house for up to three years.
In addition to that, she must also get a court approved 9-to-5 job that she must attend at least five days a week. The judge, however, made it crystal clear that filming Teen Mom does NOT constitute as a job. In fact, the judge even went one step futher by stating Amber CANNOT film anything for MTV while staying at the halfway house, working her job or appearing in court.
The judge also got in touch with MTV, and the network promised the court it would not sue Amber for breaking her contract with the series due to her sentencing.
I’m not surprised MTV is willing to let Amber out of her contract as for starters, not agreeing to do so would equal very bad publicity for the network. Plus, following Amber’s suicide attempt last summer, something tells me MTV might be more than happy to part ways with her, perhaps not wanting to experience blame or backlash in the case of any future tragedy. In fact, just last October, Amber revealed she was still suicidal.
Amber’s departure from MTV would spell bad news for her baby daddy, Gary Shirley,who has reportedly blown most of his MTV earnings on boozing and strippers.

TELL US – DO YOU THINK AMBER WILL EVER APPEAR ON TEEN MOM AGAIN? DO YOU THINK SHE HAS A BETTER CHANCE OF GETTING HER LIFE ON TRACK AWAY FROM THE CAMERAS?
Oh Amber Portwood, even in jail she continues to make headlines over and over and over – well you get the point!
The latest is a report by TMZ, which states the real reason theTeen Mom star was evicted from her Indiana home last month was because she was scamming the government. Which definitely makes sense as money couldn’t have been the reason, since MTV pays Amber A LOT.
See Amber, 21, was living in a subsidized apartment courtesy of the state’s “Low Income Rental Housing Tax Credit Program.” In the lease agreement, Amber claimed she made $10,000 a year, except she earned a lot more, as in $280,000 in the year 2010 alone.
Sources reveal Amber’s little white lie was the reason for her eviction as her MTV income obviously made her ineligible for the apartment.
The good news for Amber is she won’t need to find a new apartment anytime soon as she has been finally accepted into a drug program.
Amber was back in court yesterday, after being officially accepted into Sister 2 Sister Ministries, a live-in halfway house for women exiting jail.
The Herald Bulletin reports that while Amber had hoped she could live with her grandparents before entering the program, the judge decided against it. “I understand you’ve been in jail for awhile, and you’re frustrated,” Judge David Happe said. “But the last thing we want to do is release you and have you commit another offense.”
So for now, Amber remains in jail as she is scheduled to be evaluated by the Sister 2 Sister Ministries sometime early next week. The judge stated that the amount of time Amber spends in the program will be based on how well she does. He also added that Amber will be able to come and go as she pleases, as long as staff knows where she is. She will also have a 10 p.m. curfew.
While doing the drug program, Amber will undergo daily screenings, fulfill treatment obligations, and attend drug court each week.
The judge made it clear that if Amber fails the program, she will serve five years in prison, no questions asked. Yikes. Good luck to Amber, here’s to hoping she can finally clean up her act and be there for 2-year-old daughter Leah.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST WITH AMBER? DO YOU THINK SHE’LL FINALLY TURN HER LIFE AROUND?
Last night was the 90 minute finale of Teen Mom 2. Doesn’t MTV realize that some of us have to go to bed at a decent hour? It’s not a feature length movie (yet), it’s a weekly television program. Sheesh.
The show begins as Jenelle heads out west and she moves to Beverly, Hills that is enters a rehab program. She’s met at the airport by a counselor (?) and shares her fears and anxieties with him as she texts on the way to her Malibu center. The staff searches her bags, and she is quick to admit there may be a “blunt wrapper” or two among her belongings. A quick urine test reveals that she has marijuana in her system. No biggie. She meets with her therapist who lectures her on any drug talk. Jenelle tells her that she wants to repair the relationship with her mother, and her only problem with weed is that she’s not allowed to smoke it. Fair enough. Dr. Drew? Are you watching?

Two conflicting reports came in this week on Teen Mom 2′s resident jailbird, Jenelle Evans, and who will have custody over her son Jace. Currently, her mother Barbara Evanshas temporary custody of him until June 10. And an insider is blabbing that Janelle wants her mother to permanently adopt Jace, so she can continue to live her hard-partying lifestyle.
Talking to Reality Weekly, the source states, “She has told friends that she knows it means giving Jace up forever, but she genuinely thinks she’s doing the right thing. Jenelle would rather spend her time and money on herself than her son, which is why she wants her mom to officially adopt him. It’s really sad how selfish she is; her priorities are completely out of whack.”
Reality Weekly reports another weighing factor for the 20-year-old MTV star, is the fact that she no longer wants to keep paying her mother child support! Yes, the mag states that Jenelle is always short on money and get this, she reportedly feels the $30-a-week she is being forced to give Barbara is a “burden.” Yikes.
So if Mom adopts Jace, that would end the child support obligation and Jenelle would have more money to spend on her first love, weed. At the moment, Jenelle has scheduled visits with her son, which she is allegedly blowing off because she was has way better things to do (like post to her social media accounts incessantly).
The report recalls a specific incident where Jenelle missed out on a visit because she was too hungover: “A couple of weeks ago she was supposed to look after Jace so that her mom could have a break, but she canceled because she was too partied out. The next day when it came time for her to see her son, she slept in instead.”
“Jenelle always chooses partying over spending time with Jace,” the insider continues. “She resents staying at her mother’s with the baby when she could be out partying.”
Avoiding obligations because of your wicked benders might be okay for a college freshman once or twice, but it’s not looking too hot for a single mom. Due to this, Jenelle and her mother’s relationship is extremely strained. Another source chimes in and says, “Her relationship with her mother is still terrible. She still brags about partying every day and has practically no relationship with her son.”
Jenelle however took to her Facebook to deny the report, claiming: “My mother will never adopt Jace. As usual … I’m getting myself 100% straightened out before I get him back.” That might be true, but it’s worth noting that Jenelle was arrested twice in the same week this year, and has had multiple restraining orders filed against her. A volatile, violent person is not an ideal situation for a child, and Jenelle has a lot of work to do before convincing anyone she’s ready to be a mother.
Luckily, Jace has Barbara to advocate for him. A source says, “Barbara has done everything she can to make her daughter take responsibility, but it hasn’t worked. Her mom just wants what’s best for Jace. She can see that Jenelle is not in a place to be a mother. Ultimately, Jenelle’s mom loves Jace enough to step up and adopt him.”
The finale of Teen Mom 2 airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.

TELL US: DO YOU THINK JENELLE’S MOM BARBARA SHOULD ADOPT JACE? DO YOU THINK JENELLE IS SERIOUS ABOUT GETTING HER LIFE ON TRACK?
Things are already looking bleak again for Teen Mom‘s Leah Messer, who recently went through a miscarriage.
A new report alleges that she caught fiance Jeremy Calvert making plans to hook up with a stripper. “While Jeremy was in the shower, Leah saw that he received a text. She soon realized that Jeremy was chatting with another girl!”
Like many cheating fools before him, Jeremy tried to cover it up and say he was talking to a co-worker. Unless he works at Bada Bing’s, that excuse didn’t hold up, and soon Leah discovered the texting woman was a Lady Of The Pole. Apparently, visiting strip clubs is one of Jeremy‘s hobbies, and the report says he visits clubs often. Leah was not happy, the source says: ”She couldn’t believe that Jeremy would betray her. Leah broke down crying.”
While some women would leave or end the relationship at the first hint of messing around, Leah will probably continue as normal. The source explains, “Leah is terrified to be alone. She would rather be with a bad guy like Jeremy than no guy at all.” We hope Leah gets strong and maybe pays a visit Dr. Drew to perform some self-reflection, and then promptly dump the deadweight, if it turns out he is indeed cheating.
Speaking of the lovely Dr. Drew, fellow Teen Mom stars Kailyn Lowry, Catelynn Lowell and Maci Bookout visited the set of his show Life Changers to do some crying and also shake their heads at their troubled cast mate, Jenelle Evans. Catelynn was ultimately supportive of Jenelle, who is currently entangled in several legal dramas, “That’s her life. We all need to be there and support her and help her choose a different path in life.”
Kailyn was a bit more negative, comparing their standards to Jenelle’s, saying “Her best might not be our standards of best.” But, she quickly changed her tune, and had this somewhat optimistic piece to add, “I think she’ll figure it out.”
Kailyn’s comments are not so surprising as a report came out two weeks ago stating Jenelle not only owes Kailyn money, but also back-stabbed Kailyn by stealing her boyfriend!

TELL US: DO YOU THINK JEREMY IS CHEATING ON LEAH WITH A STRIPPER? DO YOU THINK TEXTING IS CHEATING? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF JENELLE’S CURRENT PROBLEMS? WILL SHE FIGURE IT OUT EVENTUALLY?
The relationship drama never ceases with the ladies of Teen Mom (seasons 1 AND 2) as y’all well know. This week alone it was reported that a few of MTV’s chosen teen mothers want to get pregnant again. However, if they keep breaking up with their boyfriends, that thankfully won’t happen.
The main young mom to which I’m referring? Maci Bookout who appears in the first installment of the franchise. She is apparently back on the market as Hollywoodlife.com is reporting she has broken up with boyfriend of nearly two years Kyle King.
The blog cites an UsWeekly article which states the couple have broken up just a few days before celebrating what would have been their two-year anniversary. Viewers know that Maci has been anything but shy regarding a wedding with Kyle, and she has also spoken more than once about quickly starting a family with her beau. Those assertions allegedly caused many an argument between the pair, as Kyle wasn’t totally on board with kick starting such a planned future.
An insider claims, “Maci wanted something way more serious. She was never happy enough just being a couple. She always wanted more, more, more, whether it was a ring or another baby.”
The source continues, stating that Kyle was more than content to just date and live together at their place in Tennessee. “He broke it off. It’s really sad because they love each other but she pushed him away.”
Maci, however is denying these claims, and where do reality stars go to denounce such rumors? None other than their personal soapbox, Twitter. The MTV sweetheart tweeted yesterday, “Hahaha well once again the tabloids are wrong … Don’t waste your time!”
The magazine is alleging that that the straw that broke the camel’s back happened while Maci and Kyle were recently visiting California. After a heated fight about the state of their relationship on said trip, Maci allegedly left Kyle in a tizzy and stayed out partying until 3 AM. When will these girls learn that partying isn’t going to solve any of their problems?
The insider reveals, “Maci’s been partying way more lately [and] Kyle is not okay with it. She’s just not the girl he started dating.” Sounds like someone didn’t sign up for the life that comes with dating a “reality star.” Kind of makes me respect the poor guy. Kind of.
If these reports are on the up and up, it seems that Maci isn’t taking too well to the single life. The source claims, “She’s super, super upset right now, [b]ut she’s trying to keep herself busy. She’s just focused on Bentley and being an amazing mom.” If the break-up rumors are true, I do hope that Maci is focusing more on her son and less on the party circuit to get over ol’ Kyle.
In other news, Tuesday’s episode of Teen Mom revealed that Leah Messer had cheated on her husband Corey Simms a mere week before the two got married. We all know now that Leah and Corey have divorced, and she has moved on with Jeremy Calvert.
The same site is alleging that Corey is doing his best to win back the mother of his twin daughters.
Citing an In Touch report, a friend of the former pair says, “Corey dumped his girlfriend and bought a home in order to lure Leah into his life again.”
There has been speculation that both Corey and Leah were unfaithful during the course of their courtship and union. Leah recently admitted to having sex with her ex a week before their wedding, while Corey has been accused of cheating while the duo was still married… but after they separated.
The insider tells the magazine, “He wants to prove to her that he’s a changed man this time.” I would like to think Corey is a changed man, however, this kind of change isn’t what I was hoping for in the young father.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE RECENT TEEN MOM NEWS? DO YOU THINK THAT KYLE HAS BROKEN UP WITH MACI? SHOULD COREY TRY TO WIN BACK LEAH? SHOULD SHE GO BACK TO HIM? ARE THESE QUESTIONS AS RIDICULOUS TO YOU AS THEY ARE TO ME? SAY IT AIN’T SO, COREY!
Last night’s Teen Mom 2 was thirty minutes longer than it needed to be. Why MTV, do you need to draw out this drama past its allotted hour? If the show had just been in its normal time slot, I wouldn’t have seen Leah file for divorce or Kailyn cheat on Jordan with Jo. Of course, I also wouldn’t have seen Chelsea work towards her GED (you go, girl!), or Jenelle check herself into rehab for her addiction issues. Oh MTV, you’re both a b*tch and a lover…
Jenelle is on probation, but she’ll be scott-free if she can stay clean for one year. She’s not allowed to fraternize with anyone who has pending drug charges, and that includes Kieffer. She’s back in Barbara’s house, and it’s back to status quo with the pair cussing and screaming at each other in front of poor Jace. This child deserves so much more than these MTV cameras are providing. Jenelle feels like her world is coming to an end because she can’t smoke and she can only communicate with Kieffer via phone. She talks to him about breaking up since they won’t be able to see each other in person for at least twelve months. He’s on board. That should tell the out-of-touch-with-reality Jenelle a lot.

According to a new report by Star magazine, a source is being quoted as stating that they “are hesitant to get pregnant again while involved with MTV.”
The source goes on to say that Maci “really wants a daughter with her current boyfriend Kyle King.” What better way to liven up her storyline than to show her adjusting to being the mother of a girl, and shopping for little girl clothing? Think of all the adorable pink merchandising opportunities!
Leah, who recently became pregnant with fiance Jeremy Calvert, and then miscarried, is “still hoping to have a third child” with Jeremy. Again, this would be another great path to pursue; watching Leah juggle twins, her ex Corey, and a new baby. The only teen mom I worry about is Chelsea, who despite everything, still wants another baby with Adam Lind. The source agrees with me, and thinks another kid is a bad idea, with or without MTV: “She said she didn’t want to make babies with anyone else. It’s a recipe for disaster, if you ask me.”
A true recipe for disaster is attempting to have more children after you’ve become used to a huge MTV paycheck. Then again, these ladies may have just come down with a case of I Want My Own Show-itis.
In other news, unfortunately, there is more to report on Jenelle Evans. We last reported she was facing jail time for violating a restraining order against ex-roommate Hannah Inman, which included accusations of Jenelle allegedly posting naked photos of Hannah to Jenelle’s Facebook fan page. It didn’t come as a shock to find out that Jenelle is now being accused of harassing yet another friend, Amber Lane.
In a new report, Amber alleges Jenelle cyber-bullied her: ““I’ve spent days crying over what Jenelle posted about me online calling me a slut and a whore and reading comments from her thousands of fans saying I should kill myself. Jenelle is a bully — and she got what she deserved, going to jail twice in one week on the harassment charges.”
Other lovely allegations include a story of Jenelle throwing a baby crib out of a window and “destroying a family heirloom” of Amber’s. Amber thinks the only thing that will teach Jenelle to be nice is to get locked up, saying “[Jail] is the only way she’ll ever learn. Her bullying techniques are so harsh it could eventually push someone over the edge to hurt themselves or commit suicide.”
A new episode of Teen Mom 2 airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.
