Reality TV stars and legal issues are like siamese twins! This year several stars dealt with legal problems from bankruptcies and foreclosures to lawsuits and arrests.
Without a doubt Real Housewives of New Jersey stars take the crown when it comes to most time spent in court – like a lot, a lot. But the ladies of Real Housewives of Orange County are not far behind them! Of course it wasn't just the Housewives who were getting hauled to court or busted by the IRS or mugshotted; several other shows represented well and held their own!
Below is the 2013 legal round up.
Above, Jenelle Evans confuses a jail cell with a spa and thinks it's a place you visit periodically to get away from it all! The Teen Mom 2 star, whose antics practically caused a cancelation for the show, racked up a whopping FIVE mugshots this year! #CheckMyCharges #GoogleMyMugshots
In the preview clip, Amber admits to Dr. Phil that she was high the entire time she filmed Teen Mom. "Every time you see me on that show, I was high, except for when I was on 16 and Pregnant," she shares. "This is actually my first time on stage sober, so I'm really nervous."
After following Teen Mom train wrecks Farrah Abraham and Jenelle Evans, it's refreshing to read about a Teen Mom star who has worked hard to turn her life around and learned from her mistakes. I am proud ofAmber Portwood for making the decisions she has to make a better life for herself and Leah.
In her first interview since being released from prison on November 4, Amber talked to In Touch about her pill addiction, prison life, and future plans.
"Before prison, I never thought aboutLeah," admitted Amber. "I was addicted to drugs and didn't care about anything else. Prison saved my life – and gave me a second chance at being a mother." Note to Jenelle: the picture above is what a second chance as a mom looks like, not a positive pregnancy test.
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."
News Flash forFarrah: your future is already ruined. #NobodyLikesYou
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.
