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.
So, there's shocking, "oh my God, I never saw that coming" reality television gossip, and then there's this. Because, believe me, you saw this coming and will in no way be the least bit shocked. Former Teen Mom star Jenelle Evans' former boyfriend Kieffer Delp was arrested. Again. You may remember him as the homeless dude who got the innocent Janelle hooked on Ke$ha heroin…and it was all captured by MTV's cameras.
This news is especially entertaining for me because a dear friend of mine texted me last week to see if he was missing out on any Kieffer gossip. This friend practices law in Brunswick County and was appointed to one of Kieffer's cases a while ago. Every once in a while he checks in to see if I have heard how his "old pal" is doing. So, this one is for you, buddy (although you likely knew it before I did)!
First Brian says he was caught off guard when their relationship was outted by the press last week. So he didn't notice the paparazzi Farrah mostly likely invited to their "romantic stroll" in the park? "It's something I never expected to be brought into," Brian says about the media attention.
"I wasn’t really expecting for [our relationship] to come out," continues Brian. "I mean, I didn’t know when it would come out, or if it would, so it kind of caught me by surprise. But I knew it was a big ordeal when people started calling my mom’s house asking about it."
I think we can pretty much credit MTV with the birth of reality television thanks to the explosion of The Real World, but it didn't stop there. Think about all of the families we watch on a weekly basis, from the Robertsons to the Kardashians to everyone in between. Where did the madness begin? Some may say with a ride on the crazy train courtesy of The Osbournes. Don't act like you didn't watch!
We saw Jack and Kelly Osbourne grow up on camera (although eldest daughter Amy didn't participate) with the always hilarious chirping busybody of a "mum" Sharon and bumbling, mumbling former death metal star Ozzy. And, of course, don't forget their tiny pooches! Now Kelly is a fashion consultant for E! and Jack is family man–how precious is his wife? (pictured with him and his parents above)–currently competing on Dancing with the Stars…but do they ever think about going back to the days of reality television's first family?
Oh no. Say it isn't so! Teen Mom 2'sJenelle Evans spends so little time with her first son Jace, that I can only imagine what would happen should the train wreck reality star choose to procreate again. Bad decisions courtesy of MTV, don't you know!
We watched Jenelle drift in and out of horribly dysfunctional relationships and engagements while chasing Ke$ha, weed, and whoever could sell her a quick high. Several rehab stints, God awful tattoos and poor choices later, she's found the #loveofherlife. Sure she has! Purely speculation here, thanks to Jenelle's life playing out on social media, but do we think she could possibly be expecting again?
MTV's newest reality show Big Tips Texas follows the lives of four veteran and six newbie waitresses and bartenders at a bar named Redneck Heaven, where the goal is to make the customers feel "happy and horny".
A sneak peek aired earlier this week. I watched, um, cause it's my job. (That's my story and I'm sticking to it!) Big Tips Texas is obviously a reality TV knock-off of Coyote Ugly and totally trashy TV at its finest. I'm hooked already, um, cause I have no standards. (That's the truth!)
According to MTV, we can expect to see the Big Tips Texas ladies "evolve, shift, and grow as they work and party their way through the drama and adventure of figuring out who they are and where they're going." Giddy up!
It's no secret I love the kids from Jersey Shore (some much more than others, of course). I can GTL with the best of them, except I am not a member of a gym, I tend to blind people at the beach with my pastiness, and the only one who does my laundry is me. That said, y'all have to admit that the orange crew has grown up and calmed down more than anyone ever expected. Makes me proud…
I understood when communities didn't want the drunken, brawling, slipper-wearing, Britney flashing, roid raging guidos and guidettes falling all over their boardwalks, but times have changed. They've changed. Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni "JWoww" Farley still enjoy time in front of MTV's cameras for their spin-off Snooki & JWoww, but now they are planning weddings and burping babies instead of planning ragers and, well, just burping.
This newfound maturity doesn't seem to matter to the community of Pelican Island, New Jersey. They don't want the show filming anywhere near them. Need a refresher? Catch up here. However, now Snooki and JWoww aren't giving up without a fight!
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.
