Amber Portwood: Released From Jail, Denied By Halfway House, Strapped With Ankle Monitor!

by at . Comments

After more than two months behind bars, Amber Portwood is a free woman.

Sort of.

The Teen Mom star, who had been locked up for drug possession and probation violations galore, was released only after the halfway house where she was supposed to complete a drug treatment program apparently refused to accept her.


According to sources, people at the transitional home - Sister 2 Sister Ministries - thinks Amber Portwood is too much of a risk and embodies too much negative energy.

She would be unlikely to benefit from its program, in other words. So she was denied, and since no other program will take her the judge decided to release her.

With an electronic monitoring bracelet. Classy.

Amber's not out of the woods yet, either. The judge will still require her to apply for residency at another home, although that process could take several months.

Until then, she will remain under home confinement. Until a different drug treatment program accepts her, at least she'll be home. And unable to leave her home.

At least Gary Shirley can visit. Actually, maybe that's not the best idea.

Will Amber Portwood end up back in jail?

In the beginning of her turn, the way she treated Gary was something I have seen befroe, I've seen it start at 17 and end at death at 50. They can't change once they are used to treating a person like an animal. However someday a new beau might not take it laying down and she'd learn to not be verbally and emotionally abusive. But that will be 3-4 guys from now and if she stays off drugs and is lucky. That's why the half-way house didn't want her--she's ugly in her treatment of others. She somehow thinks she's a diva and how could the death of a baby when she was "2 or 3' upset her so bad now unless she put the pillow over it's face and kept that to herself all this time.At 17 I lost my 11-year-old brother and did not milk it for its drama like she does this newborn.


Please tell the judge to send her to me in South africa....I will help her get back onto the right road and appreciate her life and start taking responsibility for her actions...


She more worrried on doing a show then
the getting. Her self better for that child of hers.


@pak31...yeah, I hear ya...cosmetic details..just drives ya nuts, doesn't it? My thing is teen moms who use a dark lip liner with much lighter lipstick shade! WHAT THEY THINKING?!?


I've said it before and I'll say it again. Why is it that none of these teen moms know the correct way to tweeze eyebrows??? It's just one of my pet peeves, I don't mean to be nit picky. She tweezes them way past the inner corner of her eyes.


Yeah Gary can visit, and Tom, Dick, and cant forget Harry! Maybe, just maybe (doubtful but keeping fingers crossed) she will focus on Leah and herself!
