Teen Mom star Amber Portwood is going to rehab.

“I am going to rehab for anger control issues and depression,” she confirms to Star (via Radar) and after the month she's had, it's a wise move.

Losing Her Baby FOREVER

“I’m on medication at the moment to just help me relax," she adds. "I’m in a vulnerable state right now. I know people want a lot of answers.”

Mostly, we just want her to live to see age 22.

Last week's meltdown was merely the latest in a series of ugly incidents for the Anderson, Ind., native, who has more run-ins with police than we can count.

News that Amber Portwood was hospitalized after a suicide attempt broke last week. She was found by police and later admitted she had taken pills.

Earlier, she had a disturbing conversation with baby daddy Gary Shirley, telling him she was depressed about her life and just wanted to end it all.

Shirley called 911 after this happened.

Gary Shirley, baby daddy and sometime-lover of Amber Portwood, says he's firmly in the Teen Mom star's camp as she recovers from her hospitalization.

That he even has to clarify this says a lot about their relationship, but so be it. The way things went down June 14, it wasn't a foregone conclusion.

Shirley, the voice on the Amber Portwood 911 call that resulted after she allegedly wanted to take her life last week, takes some of the blame for it.

He denies cheating on her, but admits his "childish and immature" actions and comments over the years were wrong and he fully supports her now.

In the wake of her suicide attempt, Gary took to his Facebook to speak out in support of Amber and reassure everyone that he’s always in her corner.

“I have made threatening comments before yes ... but the last time was a year ago,” Gary writes on his Facebook wall. “I have grown up since."

"I really realized how much it hurts a mother and I’m deeply sorry.”

“I re-watch this stuff it kills me to see things I say or do and just how childish and immature I look. I’m very pro-Amber,” Shirley says of Portwood.

A source says Gary is “trying to keep his mind off stuff with Amber by filling his time with friends” since she was released from the hospital.

After undergoing a 72 hour “psychiatric evaluation” at St. John’s hospital, Amber Portwood is currently recovering at home in Anderson, Ind.

Leah Messer is reportedly devastated over a report that Corey Simms' girlfriend Amber Scaggs is six weeks pregnant with the couple's first child.

As if their heartbreaking breakup wasn't enough. For Teen Mom 2 star Leah, who has two daughters with Simms, it's one shocker after another.

Corey’s new girlfriend, Amber Scaggs, is a mom herself. Now daughter Bralyn, 1, may be getting a sibling, as reports say she's expecting again.

Protection? Who needs it, are we right people?

Corey and Leah in happier times. Tanner ones, too.

“She took a pregnancy test and it came out positive,” Amber’s friend Kacy Lynn Rogers confirms. “I know that she was with Corey around Easter, and she is approximately six weeks pregnant, so it makes sense.”

TOTALLY makes sense, Kacy Lynn.

But reportedly, neither Leah nor Corey - who are not even divorced yet - know that Amber is expecting (although tabloid sources apparently do). 

Why wouldn't Corey Simms know if he knocked up Amber? Because he's not even on speaking terms with Scaggs at the moment, natch.

According to OK! Magazine, Maci Bookout will finally get to have a “happily ever after” moment when she weds beau Kyle King on Teen Mom this season.

Which is interesting, since we hadn't even heard she was engaged to King, who she began dating after her split with Ryan Edwards, her son's father.

Knowing OK!, it's probably a highly misleading cover story. There is no mention of a specific wedding or even of an engagement, just quotes like this:

Maci Bookout Getting Married?

“Maci says that although she’s young and doesn’t know what she wants to do with the rest of her life, she knows for sure that she loves Kyle,” a friend says.

“She loves being around him and he makes her very happy.”

A source says Maci Bookout’s wedding dreams are "down-to-earth and achievable," whatever that means, and will be a simple, fun and family-oriented.

Again, light on the details. But here are two things we do know:

  1. Engaged or not, she and Kyle King are definitely still together.
  2. Things are going much better for Maci than Amber Portwood.

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.

According to the caller, Amber was threatening to end her life. She did not appear injured, and was transported to a medical facility for evaluation.

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.
