While Amber Portwood had 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.
