I know y’all have been waiting all week to see what those crazy Teen Moms have been doing. That’s so easy! Farrah’s been modeling, Catelynn’s been searching for the perfect apartment with Tyler, Maci’s been talking out of both sides of her mouth, and Amber? Well, Amber’s been cussing up a storm.
Amber and Gary have been back together for a week, so of course the next rational step for the pair would be…wait for it…house hunting! On the way home, the broker calls and, whoopee!, the couple has been approved to buy a house thanks to MTV Gary’s steady job with home healthcare. Even Leah is dancing in her carseat. Gary’s mom comes over to hear the news and sincerely hopes that Amber and Gary’s relationship is on the right track. Leah claps when the two kiss. I’d be happy if I didn’t know how tragic this couple becomes.

In the current issue of UsWeekly magazine, 19-year-old Maci, mother to 2-year-old Bentley, makes the surprising revelation. “I’m dying to have Kyle’s child!” says Maci of boyfriend of 16 months Kyle King.
The reason? Kyle is such a good parent to her son Bentley. “They way he is as a father is just amazing, and Bentley’s not even his kid” says Maci of the former Coca-Cola merchandiser. “I’m just like, ‘Oh, my God, let’s have a baby! I want to see my child and your child.’” Wowzers!
Maci goes on to reveal that Bentley formed an instant bond with Kyle, even crediting Kyle for potty training him. “I think they like each other more than they like me,” says Maci who is thinking pink when it comes to her next tot. Did I mention Maci is still 19-years-old? “I really want to have a girl. The clothes are so much cuter,” she says, adding, “I told Kyle that if the next one is a girl, we don’t necessarily have to try again, but if we have a boy, I want to try for a girl and maybe one more time after that.”
Maci goes on to reveal that more babies won’t be immediately. The reason? She would like to be married and not at all because she’s still 19. “I want Bentley to have a sibling close in age so they can play together, but I can’t have another baby until I get married.” Maci however adds that she would like to get married “sooner than later.” Let’s hope Kyle gets the hint!
Moving on to Farrah Abrahamwho was shown getting a boob job on the show’s season 3 premiere this week. Farrah tries to explain her reason for the new boobies stating once again that, “After having a baby, my boobs went away.” Farrah adds, “It hurt my self-esteem. I didn’t feel like I was woman enough anymore. I knew I could be happier.” Well Farrah can definitely afford her new boobies as Amber Portwood stated in court last year that MTV paid her $140,000 to film for six months. Safe to assume Farrah and others got the same amount.
And finally, the ratings for the season 3 premiere are out and viewers are still tuning in to watch MTV’s teenage mamas! With over 3.65 million viewers tuning in on Wednesday, the season 3 premiere was the most watched premiere episode in the show history.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON MACI WANTING TO HAVE KYLE’S BABIES? SHOULD FARRAH HAVE GOTTEN THE BOOB JOB?
They’re ba-ack! The original Teen Moms, Maci Bookout, Amber Portwood, Farrah Abraham and Catelynn Lowell returned last night for their third season as the first Teen Moms.
Maci is taking time off from work, and she and baby Bentley are living in Nashville for the summer to be close to new beau Kyle. She is concerned because Ryan seems to have slacked off with his child support payments. Maci calls a friend to complain, and they joke about the possibility of him going to jail. Maci doesn’t want future Bentley (at age eight, to be exact) to ask if Dad’s ever been in jail only to find out that yes, Dad was locked up for not providing for him. Is jail something that normal third graders inquire about in regard to their parents?
Farrah and her mother have continued counseling to mend their volatile relationship. Farrah is juggling culinary school, waitressing and modeling…oh yeah, and being a mom to baby Sophia. She reveals she’s ready for a big change…a move perhaps? College? Volunteering for a good cause? Um, no. A boob job. Seriously? Can I get a slow clap for MTV for making this girl a TV “star” and providing her with the money to “fix” the breasts that her toddler so selfishly changed by being born? She plans to take out a loan because, duh…she deserves to treat herself.

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood, who recently stated she was planning to enter treatment made good on her word, as sources confirm she has recently checked into rehab for unspecified reasons.
According to E! News, Amber, who attempted suicide just two weeks ago, has entered a fancy-smancy rehab facility in where else – Malibu.
In fact, helping to confirm the reports of Amber’s rehab entry were facebook posts from Amber’s own fame-seeking brother, Shawn Portwood: “Best wishes to my sister while in rehab. For everyone who might not know, it is not for drugs btw,” as Shawn makes sure to point out his sister’s rehab stay is not for illegal substances. Amber recently came forward admitting she suffers from bi-polar disorder which may help to explain some of her actions.
According to a friend of Amber who followed up on brother Shawn’s FB post, things are going well for her since going to treatment and she is headed in a positive direction: “I talked to her last night and she sounds amazing and positive! She has a great support system that stands beside her and are supporting her in this life changing journey.” Amber will reportedly remain in rehab for 30 – 60 days.
The article does not give information on who is providing for Amber’s two-year old daughter, Leah while she is in treatment, but it has been reported that Gary Shirley now has custody of her.
In other Teen Mom Rehab stories, Jenelle Evans has finished her stint in a Malibu rehab facility following reports of out-control partying and fighting, plus multiple arrests. In a RadarOnline interview, Jenelle’s attorney, Dustin R.T. Sullivan reveals what’s next for his client: “She’s back home in North Carolina and started class at Cape Fear Community College on Wednesday. She’s taking American History and a math course. She wants to finish the two year program with an Associate’s Degree and then get her Bachelor’s Degree from UNCW (University of North Carolina Wilmington).”
As for her terror-relationship with on-off boyfriend, Kieffer Delp, they are NOT together (good!) but according to Jenelle’s lawyer: “They may still communicate, but as far as I know they aren’t together.”
Adding that she apparently learned the concept of “planning for the future,” Jenelle is applying for jobs, other than reality TV star, so she can provide extra income for her son with whom she has been recently reunited. Jenelle herself explained her goals in an interview, stating: “In 10 years I see myself living in a decent house with a decent car and with Jace and married to a man that deserves me and my family. I also see myself with a career as a film editor.”
Best of luck to Amber, Janelle, and their kiddies – they’ll need it! Hopefully this is the fresh start they both need, because it would be nice for MTV to chronicle Teen Mom success stories for a change!
Do you think Amber will straighten out? Do you think Janelle is a changed woman after rehab? Will you be watching the upcoming season of Teen Mom?
Amber, 21, gave an interview to Star magazine in their current issue, during which she revealed her plans to check into a California rehab center to get the help and support she needs.
“I am going to rehab for anger control issues and depression,” Amber tells Star. “I’m on medication at the moment to help me just relax. I’m getting the help I need from friends, family and counseling.”
When asked why she tried to take her own life, Amber had a hard time answering that question. “I’m in a vulnerable state right now, and I know people want a lot of answers. Unfortunately, I don’t have those answers yet, and I’m working on myself to get them,” Amber admits, adding that rehab is something she needs “to do to get better.”
So how is Amber doing today while she awaits rehab? “Before I go to California, I’m pursuing help with a psychiatrist,” Amber states. “I’m stable, doing OK and getting the help I need.” She adds that her daughter Leah is keeping her strong.
The suicide attempt occurred on June 14 after Amber suspected her boyfriend Gary Shirley had been cheating on her. She told Gary she planned to take her life, leading to a 911 call from Gary. She was then taken to an Indiana hospital and put under a 72-hour hold. There are reports that cops found her with a rope around her neck, and that she had also taken some pills.
Meanwhile, RadarOnline reports there was a review this Wednesday regarding the custody arrangement between Amber and Gary, and no changes were made. Gary reportedly has primary custody while “Amber has supervised visits once a week.”

It is however her shocking revelation last summer, which managed to fly under the radar for some reason, that is making headlines today. See last summer Amber, 21, revealed to PEOPLE magazine that she has bipolar disorder – a condition characterized by dramatic shifts in mood.
“I take medication,” she said to PEOPLE at the time. “I haven’t [taken] anything today. Am I acting crazy? This is me though, and I like it.”
Amber revealed she was diagnosed back in 2008 after a going through a very depressing time following the birth of her daughter Leah. And despite admitting her disorder, Amber expressed doubts that the diagnosis was accurate. “I don’t think I’m bipolar, to be honest with you,” she said. “I’m just really outgoing. I think everybody thinks they’re bipolar these days. You’re a teenager, you have hormones. You’re gonna switch up every two seconds!”
Sources however add that Amber has been in therapy for two years.
Meanwhile, Amber’s on-off boyfriend Gary Shirley tweeted yesterday that Amber is doing better. “Amber is safe and getting the help she needs right now. Thanks for your prayers and support,” wrote Gary.
And more details are also now coming out about Tuesday’s events as it appears Gary also called 911 after Amber threatened to harm herself. She apparently thought he was cheating on her.
In the 911 call, Gary begged the cops to check on Amber stating she told him “she’s going to hang herself.” Gary added, “I just spoke with my girlfriend and she had said something to me … said she’s having a hard time with her life … call the police, they can find my body in the garage.”
As of today, Amber is still being evaluated at St. John’s Hospital in Indiana with a source stating that Gary visited her briefly on Tuesday afternoon. Amber’s hospitalization makes sense as those who threaten or attempt suicide are kept under a 72-hour hold.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST?
UPDATE - Amber has now been released from the hospital, three days after her reported suicide attempt.
According to a new report by In Touch Weekly, Teen Mom 2 “star” Corey Simmsmight have another baby on the way.
The mag claims Corey’s girlfriend of less than 2 months Amber Scaggs, 21, is pregnant, with sources close to Amber revealing she believes Corey is the father. The news is all the more awful shocking as Corey is still legally married to the mother of his twin girls Leah Messer. In fact, the two only just separated back in mid April.
“She took a pregnancy test and it came out positive,” Amber’s friend Kacy Lynn Rogers confirms on the record. “I know that she was with Corey around Easter, and she is approximately six weeks pregnant, so it makes sense.”
And it appears Corey is unaware of Amber’s reported pregnancy (he sure knows now!) because the couple is currently going through a rough patch. “She doesn’t have anything to say to him,” says another pal of Amber’s, who also confirms she is pregnant. “He’s been showing his true colors lately. I don’t even know if Amber will tell him for a while.”
Meanwhile friends of Leah are worried she will lose it once she finds out about the reported pregnancy. “She will really flip out,” a pal of Leah’s tells In Touch. “She already hates Amber.” Amber is also a single mother to 1-year-old daughter Bralyn from a previous relationship.
It however appears Leah became aware of the story on Tuesday, a day before the new In Touch issue came out. She posted the following message on her facebook page this Tuesday, “Lord, Tomorrow is gonna be rough, I’m ready for it to come and gooooooo. Please!” She then posted the following yesterday when the news officially broke, “Today has shown me it’s time to start a new beginning for my girls andddd Myself.”

UPDATE - Amber Scaggs is denying she is pregnant. She tells the Starcasm blog she and Corey have yet to get physical. “It’s not true. It’s not even possible for me to be pregnant,” states Amber.
A bit of sad news to report today as Teen Mom star Amber Portwood is currently hospitalized after an apparent suicide attempt which is now being confirmed by the Anderson Indiana Police Department.
According to a report by Star magazine via RadarOnline, Amber, 21, was rushed to a hospital emergency room after being found unconscious in her home with a rope around her neck. The just released police report states she “was depressed and threatening to end her life.”
Sources reveal that Amber, who is currently being treated at St. Johns Hospital in Anderson, Indiana, was found this noon and later admitted to hospital staffers that she had taken a cocktail of pills.
Gary Shirley, Amber’s on-off-on-again boyfriend and father of her 2-year-old daughter Leah, was the one who sent his mother to check up on her after he became increasingly concerned about her state of mind following a phone conversation.
Gary’s mom called the cops who ultimately discovered Amber unconscious on a couch. “It’s believed she may have taken an overdose of some kind of pill,” the source reveals. “She also may have tried to tie a piece of rope or string around her neck.”
Star is also reporting that Amber has since regained consciousness and has been stabilized since her admittance to the emergency room.
The timing of this apparent suicide attempt is a bit surprising since Amber just received a light sentence days ago for her domestic violence case involving Gary. A search for Amber’s official twitter page shows it has been deleted though it was still up and running on June 7th.
And just moments ago, Gary made the following tweets which seem to insinuate that Amber’s suicide attempt might have been over him -
“Never cheated on Amber.. She may have thought I did, but haven’t. I will always love and respect her even if we aren’t together.”
“Due to recent events, it was best that Amber delete her Twitter.. Appreciate all those who continue to support.”
