The cast members of Teen Mom film in their own hometowns, so it's rare that they get to interact and work with each other for extended periods of time.

Even more rare are intergenerational Teen Mom hangouts. That's right, we're talking about stars of Teen Mom 1 and Teen Mom 2 setting aside their disagreements about which series was more effed up and getting together to neglect their kids.

That's why we're thrilled - and maybe a little disturbed - by the sight of the Amber Portwood and Kailyn Lowry promoting their memoirs together:

That's right. Amber and Kailyn are sharing their life stories with the world, and they've decided to team up and do it together.

Portwood admits to being a sex-obsessed suicidal drug addict in hers, so it might move few more copies, but Lowry's no slouch in the controversy department either:

Former Teen Mom star Amber Portwood pulls no punches in her new tell-all book, revealing a life riddled with drugs, suicide attempts and even sex addiction.

Never Too Late is Amber's story of crashing and burning, hitting rock bottom and crawling back up again, documenting the highs and lows along the way.

Deeply depressed, Portwood says she first tried suicide at age 11.

“No one was home when I did it," she writes. "I just took a cord into the bathroom and hung it on the fan in the ceiling, and I looped it around my neck.”

She went through with it, too, but it didn't take. She survived, obviously, but Amber says all she remembers at that point is waking up on the floor.

“I don’t know how long I was out,” the 24-year-old star wrote.

“But the fan had only been held up in the ceiling with one screw in the middle, and the weight pulled the fan so it stripped the screw and fell to the floor."

"I didn’t try again ... I just kind of chalked it up to a failure.”

Amber Portwood admits that even after learning her lesson with a 17-month prison sentence, staying sober has been a tough internal fight in the months since.

The Teen Mom star, whose book Never Too Late comes out next week, battled her addiction to prescription drugs while locked up, and the battle continues.

Amber Portwood Makeover
Amber Portwood's makeover looks pretty great. At least compared to her mug shot chic look of the past.

“I didn’t realize when I did get out that I would have even more temptation out here than I would in there,” she says. “I had to prepare myself for that.”

It's true. By definition, freedom to make your own decisions - good or bad - greatly increases on the outside, as she learned the first DAY she got out.

“The first day I was out ... whenever things are overwhelming for me, or any sort of emotion - sadness, depression, anything - it is very easy to go back."

Drugs sound good, she says, because "you don’t want to feel that way ... you just have to stay strong and remember what you’re doing and move forward.”

Amber Portwood said she prepped herself for the struggle ahead, no matter how strong the temptations are, and she is bent on making this work.

The original Teen Mom is coming back! Well, three-quarters of it, anyway.

Maci Bookout, Catelynn Lowell, and Amber Portwood are officially returning for Season 5 of the MTV reality show in 2015, according to Us Weekly.

Not coming back with them, despite ending her feud with Catelynn last week? The infamous Backdoor Teen Mom star and restaurateur Farrah Abraham.

Teen Mom Cast Title Card

The trio reportedly refused to film again if their infamous fourth cast member was included, and MTV fired Farrah Abraham from Teen Mom as a result.

Abraham will tell you she wanted to part ways with the show anyway, but she'll spin any story any way she wants depending on which way the wind blows.

She's also very possibly an actual escort in her spare time.

Not a lot of credibility to what she says in other words, but that's neither here nor there. As for Maci, Catelynn, and Amber, a lot has changed for all three since 2012.

Teen Mom stars Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley are back in the news over an alleged feud, but for once, they may actually be on the same side.

Ambs has been clean, sober and staying out of trouble after her November release from state prison, but that doesn't mean she's been drama free.

The 23-year-old mother of Leah, 5, had a run-in with baby daddy Gary’s ex, Kristina Anderson, at an open house at her new school earlier this week.

After attending Pendleton, Indiana’s East Elementary School ice cream social with little Leah, “Gary and Amber seemed to be having a heated conversation."

“Amber had her arm crossed. She definitely didn’t look happy.”

It wasn't a fight with Gary that set Amber Portwood off, though. Just yards away, people saw Anderson crying on a bench with her mother and daughter, Karly:

Earlier this week, after Nick Viall broke the underwritten Bachelorette rule of bringing up the Fantasy Suite on live television, Bob Beckel of Fox News made his feelings on Andi Dorfman clear.

"She's a slut!" the chauvinistic idiot screamed, explaining that Dorfman slept with one guy and didn't "tell the other guy about it."

The outburst made us wonder how Beckel would categorize male stars of The Bachelor who do the same exact thing every season - and also made us think back to many other instances where the S-Word got tossed around in a shameful manner.

Is Miley Cyrus a slut because of how she dresses and dances? Does the Farrah Abraham sex tape make its lead actress a slut? And should you ever really refer to your baby mama as a slut?

All profound questions. All worth pondering as you browse through the following slut-based celebrity scandals, starting with Beckel's buffoonery:

It started as a rumor.

And it nearly ended in a knockout.

Last night, at a restaurant in Spain, Orlando Bloom tried to punch Justin Bieber, presumably due to chatter about Bieber's relationship with Bloom's ex-wife, Miranda Kerr.

Did she simply find him cute? Did the model and the singer actually hook up? Based on Bieber's Instagram response, it certainly seems like the latter.

Bloom's roundhouse may have (unfortunately) missed Bieber's skull, but no matter. These two still deserve a spot in our rundown of the craziest celebrity fights in Hollywood history. Why?

Because ORLANDO BLOOM TRIED TO PUNCH JUSTIN BIEBER. It makes us giddy just to write those words...

Former Teen Mom star Amber Portwood is out of prison and off the air, but she's still got a lot of her story to tell, and is doing it with an explosive new book.

Amber's tell all Never Too Late opens up about her rise to fame and fall from grace, her stint in an Indiana prison and her life since her release.

Amber Portwood Book Cover

The book will be released August 26, and Portwood told Radar she chose a selfie for the cover because it was symbolic of all she'd been through:

“I wanted to incorporate a selfie onto the Never Too Late book cover because I thought it was symbolic of the journey I had to take when writing the book.”

“In writing this book I had to step back and really take a look at my actions and life both before and after my jail time,” the 24-year-old added.

Also, “the selfie has become so mainstream that everyone can relate to it and my story and journey is one that a lot of people can relate to."

Amber Portwood, Maci Bookout, Catelynn Lowell and Farrah Abraham were the original four stars of Teen Mom. All have had their issues since.

No one can quite top Amber's problems with domestic violence, drugs, rehab, and hard core state prison while starring on the hit MTV show, however.

Amber Portwood has been through a lot in her life, but by all accounts, she is doing better recently, and has cleaned up her act since being let out of prison.

That doesn't mean she doesn't attract her fair share of haters, and then some. Typically it's losers trolling her online, though ... not waiters at Applebee's!

On Tuesday, she Tweeted, "It's kind of terrible when you have to leave Applebee's because one of the waiters are glaring at me with the dirtiest look...sad :-/"

Is the waiter friends with Gary Shirley? Does he watch Teen Mom online but not read celebrity gossip and still assume she's a mess? Is he just a jerk?

We will never know. Of course it could be that she is just paranoid, making up the scenario in her head. It's a scenario more than one fan threw out there.

Not so, Amber Portwood insists, writing:

Amber Portwood has more or less dropped off the face of the earth as far as the American public is concerned, but she resurfaced this week to do an interview with Maury Povich, and for some reason the topic of Justin Bieber came up.

Asked what she thought about the Biebs' recent antics, Amber replied, "He wants attention. I remember being a teenager. I wanted attention, I wasn't getting it, so I did crazy stuff."

Maury didn't bother mentioning that Bieber isn't a teenager, but he did point out that Justin gets plenty of attention as a result of his music, basically implying that it's only no-talent trainwrecks like Amber need to publicly misbehave in order to stay famous.

Seeming to miss this point, Amber replied, "It's about publicity and it's about money. That's all it is."
