Teen Mom star Amber Portwood was hospitalized Tuesday morning in her hometown of Anderson, Ind., after apparently threatening to take her own life.

The severity of her meltdown, as well as what directly caused it, remains unclear at this time, though several unconfirmed reports have surfaced.

Star reports that Portwood admitted taking pills yesterday, and that paramedics arrived to find her near-unconscious with a rope around her neck.

Poor Amber

However, according to the police report in the case, Portwood did not appear to be injured. She was in fact hospitalized for evaluation, however.

Amber's on again/off again boyfriend, Gary Shirley, raised speculation about the MTV star's motive in the apparent suicide attempt by Tweeting:

"Never cheated on Amber. She may have thought that I did, but I haven't. I will always love and respect her, even if we aren't together."

Whatever happened, it's almost par for the course for Amber.

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood was rushed to the hospital in Indiana today, and reports from TMZ state that she threatened to take her own life.

Cops in Anderson, Ind., say someone called police from Amber's home claiming the 21-year-old "was depressed and threatening to end her life."

Amber Portwood did not appear to be injured when the cops arrived and she was promptly taken to a nearby medical facility for further evaluation.

Troubled Amber Portwood

Amber is still in the hospital. Keep her in your thoughts.

It's unclear why Portwood was in shambles, but she and baby daddy Gary Shirley had actually been on relatively good terms in the last couple of months.

It's also unclear if this will affect season three of Teen Mom, which is set to begin next month and reunites Portwood with the rest of the original cast.

More details to follow as the story develops ...

UPDATE: A police statement confirms that at 11:34 a.m. Anderson Police were called to a residence in the 1300 block of Pleasant Meadow Drive.

Teen Mom 2 train wreck Jenelle Evans has completed her stint in rehab and the MTV star now has a staggering 30 days of sobriety under her belt.

Hey, it's Jenelle Evans. Any progress is amazing.

The 19-year-old left her North Carolina home on May 7 to check into a treatment facility while her mother Barbara took custody of her son Jace.

“The rehab helped her out quite a bit with some of the issues she struggled with going in,” Evans’ attorney, Dustin Sullivan, said in an interview.

“She was tested for drugs in rehab, and she has now had a sober 30 days which is wonderful,” the attorney added, and it's a good thing too.

Evans was arrested on March 27 for her role in a brawl with Britany Truett, stemming from a huge beef over Jenelle's d-bag ex Kieffer Delp.

Sullivan says the rehab was not court-ordered, Evans' personal decision.

“She is required to meet with her probation officer once a month and be drug tested,” he said. “[Jenelle] is not required to go to any AA meetings or anything else now that she is out.  But she just got home."

The drama never stops for Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley.

The troubled tandem, who will be returning on Season 3 of Teen Mom next month, saw their feud rekindled recently thanks to an unknown person.

Dammit Jenelle

An unknown person who spray-painted Amber's car with obscene language. That sucks, but why would it lead to a dispute with baby daddy Gary?

Well, this incident, along with death threats Amber received, prompted a judge to give physical custody of baby Leah to Gary, for her protection.

That ruling came with a provision that barred them from being in the same room with Leah together, so they can’t fight in front of the baby.

Yes, their relationship is that volatile.

Prior to this, the pair had been growing closer again, spending time with one another and exchanging suggestive Tweets. Then Gary Shirley got arrested, Amber's car got vandalized, a judge split them up and he blames her, etc.

What will happen next? All we can do is stay tuned. And call the cops.

After showcasing a new crew in season two, MTV is reuniting the original cast of Teen Mom for the third season of the reality show, premiering July 5.

Catelynn Lowell, Farrah Abraham, Maci Bookout and Amber Portwood (if she stays out of jail) will all return next month for "their toughest year yet."

Battle For the Twins!

Custody battles, 911 calls, fist fights, shouting matches and, of course, the joy and pain of raising kids they didn't plan for - that's life for these four.

Sure as Amber and Gary Shirley will break up twice between now and then, THG will be reporting on the absurdity and life lessons as they unfold.

Teen Mom star Gary Shirley was arrested this morning. Incredibly, a fight with Amber Portwood wasn't the reason ... although they were having one at the time!

According to the police report, Shirley was arrested in Alexandria, Ind., at 1:34 a.m. on a Class A misdemeanor charge of driving with a suspended license.

“I observed a Silver Dodge stopped on the south side of Berry street. I could hear a female arguing with a male inside the vehicle ..." the report reads.

Gary Shirley Mug Shot

Gary Shirley had his picture taken earlier this morning.

Gary's booking photo instantly becomes one of the bigger celebrity mug shots in our gallery. And just so you know, we don't mean bigger as in the size of the .jpg file or severity of the criminal charges against him.

Apparently Gary's wooing of Amber with sexy texts didn't last.

“I asked the male sitting in the driver seat if everything was okay and he advised yes. The female also advised that everything was fine," the officer writes.

Gary Shirley and Amber Portwood used to be engaged. No longer.

The big daddy has engaged his baby mama in a series of flirty, sexy text messages, however, prompting speculation that it might not be over yet!

Gary kicked off the online flirting with a Tweet last week at Amber, writing, "I love you so much. I miss u too. See you tomorrow beautiful girl.”

He followed that with “I support you any day.” Later, a private response spurred Gary to Tweet, “your text is cracking me up your [sic] too cute.”

Amber Portwood appears just as much into it, Tweeting, “Awe babe love you too and I had a blast at Peppers it was great being w friends.”

Then Monday, Gary continued the lovefest: “miss u baby wish u were here with me I’d hold u all night. Ps I’m kissing u thru this tweet. Muaw.”

We think that's a kiss. Which is kind of gross. Get a room you two!

Lots of people are not fans of the Teen Mom phenomenon. Add Chelsea Handler to that list, and for some surprisingly personal reasons, she revealed.

The E! star described her own personal ordeal with teen pregnancy and the choice that changed her life in an interview with the New York Times.

“We need to be focusing on other things. We’re seeking out such grossness in human behavior and want such mindless entertainment," she says.

"The Real Housewives of Atlanta and some of these other shows are just racist. Or 16 and Pregnant. Getting rewarded for being pregnant when you’re a teenager? Are you serious? I mean, that makes me want to kill somebody.”

Handle This

Chelsea Handler knows this situation personally, confessing that she was a pregnant teen who exercised her right to choose, which she's grateful she has.

“I had an abortion when I was 16. Because that’s what I should have done,” Chelsea blantantly states. “Otherwise I would now have a 20-year-old kid."

"Those are things that people shouldn’t be dishonest about.”

You have to hand it to the Handler. She does not mince words and is not shy about who she is, even if that means a lot of people won't like what she is.

Regardless of her view on the issue of choice, do you think Chelsea makes a point that teen pregnancy being too glamorized? Discuss in the comments ...

Just two days after losing primary custody of her daughter, Leah, to baby daddy and occasional fiance Gary Shirley, Teen Mom wreck Amber Portwood partied it up with Shirley at a bar to celebrate her 21st birthday.

Pretty standard for the Anderson, Ind., couple.

Congratulations to Amber on reaching the big 2-1, and more importantly, for marking the milestone last Saturday but not getting arrested! Baby steps!

Amber, Gary and Leah make one big, happy family. Emphasis on .. forget it.

We actually haven't heard much from Amber Portwood in recent weeks, which likely means she's staying out of trouble and getting her $h!t together.

Well, maybe not, but let's take a glass-half-full attitude in honor of her birthday, shall we? She could certainly use all the help she can get ...

The latest Teen Mom drama is off the CHAIN this week.

Estranged from her husband Corey Simms, Leah Messer arrived home to a new rental home she shares with a girlfriend to find messages from concerned pals.

The big news they DESPERATELY needed to tell her?

Corey has a new girlfriend, Amber Scaggs, and it’s serious. So much so, in fact, that he’s ready to become a father to her 11-month-old daughter!

Another Teen Mom Baby?

This is entirely misleading. Corey's just dating a chick with a kid.

“Leah’s friends were talking about this Amber girl and asking Leah if she knew her,” says a Leah pal. “Her friends say Corey was cheating with Amber all along.”

However, Corey’s relationship with Amber Scaggs is only a few weeks old, according to another friend, noting that despite the rumors, there was no cheating.

A friend of his says Amber was not even in the picture before Leah Messer and Corey Simms, the parents of twins, filed to end her six-month marriage April 14.

Scaggs denies the cheating rumors as well.
