Thankfully, Amber has maintained her sobriety since her release from prison in November, but it hasn’t been easy. She recently opened up about the lengths she has gone to avoid drugs, including the prescription medication she needs to control her depression and bi-polar disorder.
But part of me is beginning to wonder if Farrah told MTV that she didn’t want to participate because filming Teen Mom would require – GASP! – spending time with her child. If you will recall, Sophia is living her own life, and Farrah is busy promoting her sex toys, opening a restaurant, pretending to write fiction books, gearing up for her first movie role, and working as a stripper. Where would she find the time to play mom for the cameras?
Amber‘s tell-all, Never Too Late, is set to be released next month. “My book is to help others,” she tweeted. “I’ve had a book deal for years and haven’t used it because I felt there was no purpose… but now there is… love.”
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite family photos from the past few weeks.
Nick Cannon shared the above picture of his cuties Rocky and Monroe.
Speaking to Starcasm, Farrah said she can't bear to follow her former co-stars, "I wish them all the best – but it does make me very sad to still see them make poor choices." Seriously? Because a DUI and a PORN are great choices?!?
"I can't even tell you – if I had to go through all the same struggles again that I had to deal with the first time with Sophia – and I did not like that and I knew better – it would crush me," added Farrah. Um, what? Can I buy a vowel? "So I'm very sad the other Teen Moms don't take that as seriously as they should."
If you'll recall, Maci Bookout, Catelynn Lowell, and Amber Portwood have refused to move forward with Teen Mom with Farrah in tow. They allegedly do not want their kids to share airtime with a porn star hawking sex toys. I do NOT blame them – but there is no show withoutFarrah. IMO. Farrah's special brand of narcissistic crazy makes great TV.
According to Us, MTV exes "willingly cut" Farrah out of the negotiations due to her co-stars' concerns. "MTV agreed," claimed an inside source. "They feel she set a bad example and doesn't represent the network well."
This won't end well. Speaking to a gossip magazine about Jenelle is not quite what I had in mind when Amber said she wanted to help others. Amber began, "It's not like you can wake up one day and be like, 'Hey, I'm clean' – it's irresponsible and immature." Addressing Jenelle, Amber added, "You have one child you need to think about before you have another."
