Amber Portwood eviction

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 the Teen 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.

If you recall, Amber was given the option last month of either doing five years in prison, or going to a court ordered rehab program for drug possession and a probation violation. For once in her life, Amber made the right decision by choosing rehab over hard time.

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?


It’s not easy being Teen Mom‘s Amber Portwood. And it’s about to get a lot harder. TMZ reports that Amber has pleaded guilty for her most recent December 19 arrest (she was caught with a bunch of prescription pills that did not belong to her). Amber plead to one count of possession of a controlled substance and one count of probation violation. Before you think she will get off Lohan or Paris Hilton style, it turns out the agreement would still require Amber spend up to 5 years in prison.

That’s far, far away from the reality television lifestyle Amber has gotten used to. In order to avoid jail, Amber can instead go to rehab under one condition: if she fails a drug test, she will immediately be sent back to prison. Given her failure at meeting the terms of her previous probation, it’s possible Amber may flunk out of that program as well.

Amber, who’s been having a tough time behind bars and was even put on suicide watch, would do best to consider rehab and stay out of prison. She may even want to re-consider her recent statements that the show that made her a household name, Teen Mom, was “exploiting” her and that she wanted to leave the show. At this point, a new contract with the show would be her best option. I think she could do a spin-off with Dr. Drew, Amber Goes To Rehab.

There’s at least one not totally depressing news piece about Amber this week, Starcasm reports she’s not getting evicted of the house she doesn’t live in, because she’s in jail. Funny how that one worked out. Another hearing will be scheduled to determine how much money Amber owes her former landlord.

Amber’s plea bargain for her drug possession charges will go before a judge on February 6.
