It’s not easy being Teen Mom‘s Amber Portwood. And it’s about to get a lot harder. TMZ reports that Amber has pleaded guilty for her most recent December 19 arrest (she was caught with a bunch of prescription pills that did not belong to her). Amber plead to one count of possession of a controlled substance and one count of probation violation. Before you think she will get off Lohan or Paris Hilton style, it turns out the agreement would still require Amber spend up to 5 years in prison.
That’s far, far away from the reality television lifestyle Amber has gotten used to. In order to avoid jail, Amber can instead go to rehab under one condition: if she fails a drug test, she will immediately be sent back to prison. Given her failure at meeting the terms of her previous probation, it’s possible Amber may flunk out of that program as well.
Amber, who’s been having a tough time behind bars and was even put on suicide watch, would do best to consider rehab and stay out of prison. She may even want to re-consider her recent statements that the show that made her a household name, Teen Mom, was “exploiting” her and that she wanted to leave the show. At this point, a new contract with the show would be her best option. I think she could do a spin-off with Dr. Drew, Amber Goes To Rehab.
There’s at least one not totally depressing news piece about Amber this week, Starcasm reports she’s not getting evicted of the house she doesn’t live in, because she’s in jail. Funny how that one worked out. Another hearing will be scheduled to determine how much money Amber owes her former landlord.
Amber’s plea bargain for her drug possession charges will go before a judge on February 6.
