Teen Mom trainwreck Amber Portwood is already back in jail! The 22-year-old was picked up on Thursday for a drug court violation.
According to the Indiana Herald Bulletin, Amber was not fulfilling the obligations of the drug court program while she was recovering from surgery. Amber entered the drug court program February 16th as part of her probation. The court granted her leniency while healing from surgery but apparently Amber’s recuperation was exceeding the time limits deemed acceptable.
Amber’s over-worked attorney Evan Broderick said, “I think things came to light that she could have been doing more.” He wouldn’t say why Amber had surgery, but said it was not serious. Mr. Broderick revealed Amber is in jail for recovery and could be out as early as next week once the court reviews her case. “It’s not uncommon to give a sanction in jail to get them back on track,” Mr Broderick added. She has not been terminated from the drug court program.
Speaking out on her behalf is her mother Tonya Portwood, who blames the court for the mishap. “They got it wrong,” Tonya insists to RadarOnline. “She had surgery, and basically she was on bed rest for a couple of days.”
Remember when Amber Portwood was evicted while in jail for allegedly lying about her income to qualify for low-income state subsidized housing? Well, the government of Indiana is reportedly furious that the Teen Momtrainwreck star conned them and they want their money back! Amber was renting a home subsidized by the state’s Rental Housing Tax Credit Program. A program that provides lower-income housing for those in need.
Amber under-estimated her income by about $270,000 to qualify for the program, claiming she made only $10k last year. Unfortunately, Amber earned a whopping $280,000. Sadly, I imagine most of it was spent on legal fees! Upon learning of her income discrepancy scam, the company she was renting from promptly evicted Amber.
And took the matter to court! Predictably Amber never even bothered to reply to the company’s lawsuit, which accused her of lying about her income. In response an Indian judge ruled in the company’s favor and according to TMZ, ordered Amber pay the company $673 within 30 days or face further legal action. Oh, Amber…
According to a new report, MTV has already renewed the Teen Mom 2 series for a fourth season, even though the third season has yet to air!
Radar Online reports the cast just wrapped up filming season 3 and the girls are happy a fourth season is in the works. “The girls are excited for a fourth season because they weren’t sure if it was going to happen for them. Jenelle and Leah still have great story lines, but Kailyn and Chelsea’s weren’t as strong, so they were worried,” a source tells Radar.
The source continues, “They finished filming the third season and the reunion already — and the show won’t even air until late this year probably. But they’ve kicked off filming the fourth season which will probably be their last.”
It’s also likely, that just like the original Teen Moms, season four will be the last for this cast as well. “They’ve been talking to the girls from the original Teen Mom since MTV just announced this upcoming season, their fourth, would also be their last,” adds the source.
In other Teen Mom news, single ladies - today is your lucky day! Yes, your dreams are finally coming true, as you can now enter a contest to win a date with the one and onlyGary Shirley!
The Matty P Radio Hour Show has decided to host a dating competition to win the heart of “America’s #1 Baby Daddy.” The Starcasm blog reports that on Thursday, March 29 at 8/7c, Gary will be taking some time off from beingAmber Portwood’s full-time baby daddy to guest star on the show with three women vying for his love!
A big bummer, however, to all the millions of underage girls who are interested in this special date as you do have to be 18 years old to enter. So if you’re over 18 and desperate, feel free to shoot an email to MattyPRadioHappyHour@yahoo.com, with the subject line “Gary Date.” You should also include a photo of yourself and why you deserve this date!
The latest issue of OK! Magazine states that things are very shaky with the couple, adding that they in fact broke up earlier this year, but shortly got back together.
“It’s a daily struggle for them to get along right now,” a source tells OK!. “He is under a lot of pressure at work and he brings it home with him.”
The source continues, “They usually make up pretty quickly, but the constant bickering is really wearing on Jeremy. He’s been complaining to his friends about it so much that everyone is wondering if he’s going to break up with Leah permanently.”
Another issue for the couple, is their lack of trust. Leah, 19, is reportedly very suspicious of Jeremy, 22 (perhaps those reports of him with strippers has to do with it) while Jeremy believes Leah’s not over her ex-husband and father of her twins Corey Simms, and has accused her of still being in love with him.
“Her paranoia really stresses Jeremy out and it’s pushing him away,” reveals the source. “She needs to loosen up the reins a little, but the problems aren’t all Leah’s fault. Jeremy is a typical guy and he can be really insensitive sometimes.” As reported, Leah also suffered a miscarriage earlier this year.
Moving on to troubled Teen MomAmber Portwood, who is now reportedly considering getting into porn. Yikes.
According to Reality Weekly, Vivid Entertainment offered Amber $500,000 last year to star in a porno movie. Amber of course turned down the offer, but sources close to her are now claiming she has had a change of heart and is considering it due to her mounting legal fees.
Even worse for Amber, 21, who revealed in court that she earns $280,000 a year from MTV, the network just announced last week that the upcoming season of her Teen Mom series will be the last.
“Her paycheck from MTV only goes so far, and she’s really worried it will soon all be over,” a source tells Reality Weekly. “And Amber hasn’t gotten any other offers as far as TV shows or promotions.”
But unfortunately–or fortunately–for Amber, Vivid honcho Steve Hirsch says his company is no longer interested in having Amber display her talents on screen.
“We would not be willing to pay Amber $500,000 anymore,” Vivid Entertainment CEO Steven tells the HollywoodLife. “I don’t believe she is as popular as she once was. She was more of a novelty.”

“They’re relieved,” a source reveals. “It helped all of them, being on the show, but they’re all ready to move onto other things without the cameras always around.”
We’ll see how long that feeling lasts once the MTV money dries up and they realize they have to get real 9 – 5s like us regular folks!
The final season featuring the original Teen Mom cast is expected to air this summer on MTV.
Moving on to Teen Mom 2hotmess star, Jenelle Evans, who is apparently taking a break from getting tattoos she’s sure to regret, is now getting breast implants! A source close to the troubled MTV star tells E! News that viewers can expect to see her with her two new friends when the next season of Teen Mom 2 premieres.
“She got tired of having small breasts. Jenelle decided on a full ‘C’ cup because she does not want to go too big,” the source tells E!. “Jenelle has already had a consultation with a cosmetic surgeon. Her mom went along to the consultation to show her support. They are getting along much better now,” the source adds.
And how does Jenelle’s current squeeze Gary Head feel about her decision? “Gary is all for it,” says the source, adding that he “supports her decision.” How romantical.
Jenelle also took to her Twitter page this week to announce that charges filed against her by former roommate Hannah Inman for alleged threats and harassment have been dropped.
Jenelle tweeted: “COURT IS OVER WITH CHARGES WERE DROPPED WITH THE HANNAH CASE. she dropped them.” Unfortunately for Jenelle, the cyber stalking charges leveled against her by her former boss James Duffy are still ongoing.

“Season 4 will be the final season of Teen Mom with Maci, Catelynn, Amber and Farrah,” MTV tells Us Weekly. “They will continue to be a part of our MTV family, and we’re thankful to these brave young women for sharing their stories and helping to make a positive impact on teen pregnancy prevention.”
Maci, Catelynn, Amber, and Farrah all began their MTV careers back in 2009 by starring on the first season of 16 and Pregnant.
MTV has yet to announce the premiere date of Teen Mom‘s fourth and final season, but it is expected to air sometime this summer. A Teen Mom 3 is however in the works and will likely feature an all new cast from the upcoming season of 16 and Pregnant which premieres March 27.
As we’ve reported, Amber is currently engaged in a legal mess which includes very strict probation rules that might prohibit her from continuing on with the series. We have to wonder if Amber’s issues had anything to do with this news.
The 5’7″ Farrah, 20, who signed a deal with Models International last month, is “in talks with MTV producers” about a spinoff show based on her new life and career, according to the modeling agency.
“Farrah signed with us in February and will be featured in upcoming magazines as well as LAFashionWeke.com,” a rep for Models International tells E!. “We’re very excited to have her on board. She’s going to be doing commercial, print and brand name licensing.”
Allrighty! Some of Farrah’s first modeling photos are below!

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.
