Amber Portwood Update


Some good news for Amber Portwood,the Teen Mom was able to catch a break in court yesterday.

As reported, Amber, 21, was in hot water over failing to provide a urine sample for her mandatory daily drug testing. In fact, Amber spoke to E! News, denying she failed to take the drug test, while other sources stated Amber did show up to be tested but waited over an hour and simply could not go.

“I would be in jail if I skipped” Amber told E!. “Honestly, I don’t give a s–t what people are saying…I’m doing what I have to do…they are not a concern of mine.”

Luckily for Amber, she faced a judge yesterday who chose to punish her by tackling on an extra 30 days of daily drug testing instead of sending her to prison. In addition to that, she is also required to re-read the drug court handbook and write a 500-word report on what is expected of her. For realz!

TMZ adds, as well as missing a drug test, Amber also failed to attend one of her AA meetings which is also a major no-no. Here’s to hoping Amber can finally get it together, though, something tells me…

Moving on to other troubled Teen Mom star, Jenelle Evans,who has also had issues with drugs as she is currently on probation for a previous drug violation.

According to the latest issue of Star magazine, Jenelle, 20, is still abusing drugs. The source? Her former boss James Duffy, who she is still engaged with in a legal war.

James told Star that he witnessed Jenelle drop an Ecstasy pill in early November, and saw her drunk and taking shots of E&J Brandy on a different night. “Around 2 or 3 a.m. that night, she snorted something in front of me,” said James, adding that Jenelle also told him she does drugs with her troubled on-and-off boyfriend Kieffer Delp. “When they got ‘down,’ they would snort Adderall ‘to pick them up,’” he said. “Jenelle did so much Adderall that her heart was pounding really hard, causing her to freak out.”

So, how is Jenelle passing her urine tests if she’s still on drugs? Well according to James, “Jenelle explained to me that the way she does drugs is that it only stays in your system for two to three days. She’ll do them on Friday knowing that she has to come in and do the test on Monday, because they schedule the days a week before.”

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.

Some good news and bad news today for Teen Mom star, Amber Portwood!

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?

Teen Mom 2 star, Leah Messer is unfortunately experiencing the pitfalls of fame.

According to a new TMZ report, Leah, 19, was attacked by three women over the weekend outside of a movie theater, in West Virginia. Sources reveal Leah was getting ready to leave the theater with her fiancé, Jeremy Calvert, on Sunday night when an older woman began following her and calling her names.

While Leah asked the woman to leave her alone, two more girls appeared, and all three decided to jump Leah. Luckily for Leah, Jeremy and a security guard were able to break things up and get Leah away from her attackers.

TEEN MOM’S LEAH MESSER SUFFERS A MISCARRIAGE

Leah suffered injuries which included, a swollen cheek and redness on her chest and neck. Leah maintains she does not know who her attackers are, and plans to file a police report.

A photo of Leah’s injuries is below.

Moving on to troubled Teen Mom, Amber Portwood, who is gearing up to leave jail and enter a drug program halfway house. If you recall, the judge in Amber’s case gave her the option of doing five years in prison or entering a drug program.

Amber chose the latter, but suffered an unexpected blow when the judge told her she could NOT film anything for MTV while doing the program, and had to get a regular 9 – 5 job, that does not include filming for Teen Mom.

According to a shocking new report by E! Online, sources close to Amber reveal that despite her past comments about wanting to get out of her contract with MTV, she is now having second thoughts as she a) needs the income and b) does not want to get a 9 – 5 job like all the other regular folk.

Even worse for Amber, she has spent most of her MTV earnings on her legal fees. Sources tell E! Amber decided, Saturday, that she would rather “do her time now and get it out of the way,” because the halfway house is “not the right place for her. She’d have a 10 p.m. curfew and would never see Leah because she wouldn’t want to bring Leah around that place.”

Err… Amber does realize ‘doing her time now and getting it out of the way’ means doing five years in prison right?

“The system doesn’t want Amber to succeed,” the source said. “She needs to stay in the entertainment industry. There are no jobs in Anderson. She needs to finish her schooling. She can’t do all of that with a $7-an-hour job.”

A court clerk tells E! News that Amber has to stay in the drug program for a minimum of 18 months, and up to a maximum of three years. While doing the program, Amber is also required to appear in drug court every week.

MTV is currently filming a new season of Teen Mom, which will reportedly premiere sometime in April. E! reports Amber hasn’t filmed since Thanksgiving.

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.

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 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 appears that whole minor being locked up in jail thingy and not being able to see her child is having a major impact on Amber Portwood.

The Teen Mom star, who remains in jail since being locked up two weeks ago for violating her probation, made some startling revelations during a recent court appearance.

The Herald Bulletin reports that during her court hearing last week an Indiana judge ruled that Amber, 21, remain in jail during the holidays until her hearing in January.

In addition to violating her probation by failing to submit to drug tests, not getting her GED or completing anger management classes, Amber is also accused of new charges — committing battery (stemming from a recent restaurant fight) and possession of a controlled substance (cops found her with over 40 pills without a prescription).

Amber testified that upon leaving a Malibu rehab facility this summer, she saw a medical doctor for back pain and other issues. The doctor prescribed hydrocodone which she admitted she began to abuse. According to Amber, the medication contributed to the probation violations and new offenses.

Amber then made a shocking revelation when she testified that she felt pressured and exploited through her work with MTV. “I want to quit, and I will,” she said of her participation on the hit — Teen Mom.

Her attorney, Evan Broderick, added that his client longs to return to a normal life. Interesting though I’m not certain quitting the show will help with most of the issues she is facing. Amber, who attempted suicide back in June, has revealed she is still suicidal and has been diagnosed with extreme bipolar disorder.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON AMBER WANTING TO QUIT THE SHOW? DO YOU THINK THAT WILL HELP HER STRAIGHTEN HER LIFE? DOES TEEN MOM EXPLOIT THE GIRLS?

While I hope that all RT readers are enjoying a wonderful holiday, Teen Mom alum Amber Portwood spent her Christmas behind bars. It’s much sadder and not nearly as hilarious as these posts should be.

After facing multiple violations, the young mother found herself in jail due to her failure to comply with the terms of her probation. On December 19, Amber was charged with possession as well as reportedly refusing to adhere to a mandatory urine sample.

TMZ.com is reporting that probation officers visited Amber on December 16 for failing to keep a court mandated appointment. An affidavit provided by Anderson, Indiana policeman Sgt. John Branson reveals that Amber was found in a “very groggy” state. Branson continues that officers found a bottle of mixed controlled substance pills for which Amber could not provide prescriptions. Amber cited that “her housekeeper throws all that kind of stuff away.” She’s got a housekeeper?

According to the site, officers discovered “32 Hydrocodone pills, 6 Soma pills, 2 of another muscle relaxer, 3 of a different kind of Hyrdocodone, and then 1 pill they were unable to identify.” Amber remains in custody until her hearing on January 13. MTV, please stop celebritizing these girls’ lives. God knows she’d probably be in a very similar situation if she’d never darkened the door of the network’s season-wide public service announcement… but at least she wouldn’t have banked full of extra funds with which to ruin her life, as well as the life of her precious toddler.

Of course, while you and yours were chowing down on turkey, dressing and (in my case) killer lasagna, TMZ has obtained Amber’s Christmas slammer menu. The website reveals that while we were enjoying bounties of deliciousness with family and friends, poor Amber and her fellow inmates were feasting on “turkey sausage pizza” (which was described as ‘a meat-like substance on top of the pizza’), a side of carrots (cold, not steamed), peas and some pineapple.”

Wow and wow. While I’d like to funny (and I do firmly believe that pineapple was a missing and necessary staple of my Christmas smorgasbord), it hurts my heart that anyone, including the awful Amber – who needs to serve her time and change her life — isn’t getting the precious time with loved ones I’ve been allotted. #blessings

Here’s hoping you and yours are reveling in this wonderful time, burying the hatchet and savoring your time with those you hold most dear!
