Amber Portwood shocked us when she asked a judge to send her to prison eighteen months ago. Now, out on parole, the former Teen Mom star is making plans for the future and working on her relationship with her daughter.
In a recent interview, Shawn Portwood insisted his sister is clearheaded and sober now, adding that Amber's working hard to rebuild her life.
"Amber's focus is college," said Shawn. "Then she wants to start her own drug rehabilitation program." Sound crazy? Maybe not!Amber was released from prison after serving only seventeen months of a five year sentence mostly due to selflessly helping other inmates better themselves.
Following her release, Shawn Portwood tweeted, "Amber is out and looking better than she ever has because she is clean of drugs and healthy. Time to start a new chapter. I love you, sis." Later that night, he added, "After spending the day with her, I know she will be OK."
Amber went from prison to a burger restaurant for lunch to her daughter Leah. Mom and daughter were reunited Monday night. Gary Shirley has full custody of Leah currently, but Amber hopes to obtain joint custody soon.
Amber was released from prison earlier than expected due to earning credits for good behavior and successfully completing a drug abuse program. Amber's mother Tonya and brother Shawn were present for her release. Ex-boyfriend Gary Shirley and daughter Leah were not.
Farrah took to Twitter over the weekend to bash Wicked Creative, a public relations agency, referring to herself as talent and them as criminals. "1 of the most unprofessional PR agencies who #Steal #Lie #TryToRuin company & talent futures @WickedCreative PR #Criminal #SoWrong."

In today's Teen Mom news, two of the original cast continue to on their respective paths, and it's almost as if they've traded places. Amber Portwood was the series' train wreck, and viewers watched her downward spiral that ended with an extended stay in the clink. Now, however, Amber has worked hard to turn her life around for the sake of her daughter and herself.
On the other hand, her co-star Farrah Abraham is also a train wreck. While she's not in jail, I'm sure she'd entertain the idea of starring in an adult movie focused on female inmates. Of course, Farrah never disappoints, and she recently chatted about how she can't run from fame (it will find her!) and the caliber of her three (yes, three) veryveryveryvery successful suitors. I couldn't make this stuff up if I tried!
Let's start with the positive, shall we? Starcasm reports on a recent interview given by Amber where she talks about her progress while in prison and how hard she's working to get out of jail.
Since Jenelle Evans is the reigning train wreck on Teen Mom 2, someone needs to step up to the plate in the original franchise…especially with Amber Portwood stories at a lull due to her incarceration. Leave it to Farrah Abraham to take over the role as most idiotic Teen Mom. Speaking out about her recent DUI arrest (you know, the one where she blew nearly twice the legal limit!), Farrah wants to set the record straight about what happened. Clearly, it wasn't her fault.
Blaming her sister, mainly, and being sick, in part, Farrah wants everyone to believe she didn't do anything wrong. I'm actually insulted that she truly thinks that people will be dumb enough to buy into her ridiculous story. Add in the arrogance of seeking out a media outlet to spread her crap, and I'm totally befuddled by little Miss Farrah. Geez.
While Amber is serving a five year sentence in the slammer, Gary has been raising the pair's four-year-old daughter Leah in a 1,500 square foot house in Indiana. Unfortunately for Gary, he's been forgetting one tiny detail…rent! If he's short on cash, perhaps he should start wearing some tacky clothing line again, so the company will pay him to stop wearing it. Hey, it's worked before!
Sad news, Teen Mom fans. The whirlwind romance between Jenelle Evans and Courtland Rogers has come to an end. Last week, Jenelle gushed about their "perfect couple" status. "We are moving into our own house and are very happy about this decision," Jenelle boasted. "We get along great. We haven’t argued yet and have been living together for 2 weeks!”
Where did they go wrong? Let me count the ways…Jenelle hasn't said much… yet. It's only a matter of time before she famously over shares the details via Twitter, smoke signals, Sulia, messenger pigeons, Facebook, and her blog. For now, though, Jenelle simply wrote, "I'm single once again. I ended things and didn't think things were working out between me and Courtland. I rather not go into detail why but I'm happy with this decision."
The gossip blogs have started speculating on which ex the Teen Mom 2 star will rebound with – Kieffer Delp or Gary Head. How do you choose between two such upstanding men? First you have Kieffer, who is threatening to release a Jenelle and Kieffer sex tape. On Thursday, Kieffer tweeted, “When this vid comes out shes gonna cwy like the CRYBABY she is." Lovely. Then, there's Gary, the alleged abusive drug addict. Hopefully, Jenelle will take notice of the other (little) man in her life and rebound with (only) him. Note to Janelle: His name is Jace, and he calls you Mommy.
