Amber Portwood, one of MTV's original Teen Mom cast members, reveals that she never got along with her notorious co-star Farrah Abraham. At all.

Both reality stars gained quite a bit of notoriety from the popular show, and since, with Amber doing hard time and Farrah doing a hard ... James Deen.

When they would meet at reunion specials? TENSION.

Portwood, who was recently released from prison, sat down with Life & Style and explained the nature of her turbulent relationship with Farrah Abraham.

"We hated each other for a long time," she said.

"Behind the scenes at reunions, there were incidents where things got heated. Nobody was backing down. We both at the time had some huge attitudes."

But the bitterness has since subsided, at least.

Amber Portwood recently offered some tough love advice for fellow troubled Teen Mom star Jenelle Evans, and the latter didn't take too kindly to it.

Amber Portwood ... I never judged u or said one negative thing since u have been out of jail ... Why start with me? Can’t be happy I suppose,” Evans hit back.

“I love how I look towards more of the positive side of things, yet ex teen moms want to try to bring me down. It’s sad, focus on yourself,” she lamented.

Jenelle, who is pregnant with her second child, this time by Nathan Griffith, believes she's got it together these days ... way more than Farrah Abraham in fact.

Yet given that we're still talking about Jenelle, the consensus is that she's still an emotional basket case and a loose cannon with a tenuous grip on reality.

As such, Portwood blasted Evans’ alleged drug use during her pregnancy and believed she could benefit from being locked up, just like she was.

“As scary as it seems, it would change her life for the better,” Amber said.

Amber Portwood is out of jail, on the straight and narrow and speaking out about her experiences, as well as other Teen Mom alumni she feels are headed for trouble.

COUGH ... Jenelle. Cough. Jenelle Evans. Cough, cough!

In an interview with In Touch, Amber shared her advice for Jenelle, whom she fears might follow in her dark footsteps and wind up in a very bad place.

She hasn't hit rock bottom ... yet. But she's at risk.

"She went down the exact path I did: unplanned pregnancy, addiction, bad relationships, having custody taken away," Amber says of Jenelle Evans.

"But it’s never too late for Jenelle to turn her life around. Jenelle hasn’t hit rock bottom yet. But if her rock bottom is lower than mine, that makes me scared for her."

Amber Portwood, for all she's done very, very wrong, seems to own it 100 percent these days, openly acknowledging the myriad mistakes she's made.

Three months after Amber Portwood got out of prison, she's sober and savoring her hard-fought sobriety, but admits she still wants to get high sometimes.

In a chilling scene on her MTV special Being Amber, she revealed that “I’m always gonna want to get high,” just like she "always" was on Teen Mom.

“I’ve f--king been wanting to get high all day, since I woken [sic] up this morning,” the mother of five-year-old daughter Leah says. “I swear to god.”

Despite getting sober in prison, where she spent the previous 17 months, she says that staying clean on the outside is much harder than she’d expected.

“Being free is so much different than being in prison and being sober,” Amber Portwood said, adding that every single passing day, “It’s just so hard!”

“I’m always gonna have triggers. I’m always gonna wanna get high. That’s never gonna go away. My best way to cope right now is hanging out with family.”

Like her former co-star Farrah Abraham, Amber Portwood was the focal point of an hour-long Teen Mom special presentation last night on MTV.

Both reality stars have struggled and experienced their ups and downs, but few celebrities - or people in general - have hit the lows Amber experienced.

Portwood was famously hit with a five-year prison sentence following a series of drug-related arrests and failure to get clean as part of her probation.

After 17 months behind bars, she's out. But what's life like these days for her?

When talking with her family about her time in prison, Portwood was honest.

"It's been a year and a half of hell," she says, looking back on her incarceration. "It was really bad. But I worked on myself and worked to make myself better."

As for reuniting with her daughter Leah after spending that long locked up?

Amber Portwood breaks down emotionally in her upcoming MTV special, Being Amber, about some of the past mistakes she's made. It's not a short list.

Amber Portwood and Leah Pic

Unlike former co-star Farrah Abraham, who will also be featured in an hour-long special, Being Farrah, on Sunday night, Amber is keenly self-aware.

Prison will do that. Following her release from the big house last November, the Teen Mom alum returned home to Indiana to be with her 5-year-old daughter.

Readjusting to life in the real world has not been easy, though, especially when the reality of how much time she missed with Leah starts to hit home.

"I feel so f--king bad," she says, sobbing. "I left her for so long...I know why she's acting the way she is. She's afraid that I'm gonna f--king leave her again."

"I just f---ing hate myself for everything I did," Amber Portwood continues tearfully. "It was all the drugs and s--t. It was all I did. All I did was get f--ked up."

Farrah Abraham, Amber Portwood and Catelynn Lowell are reuniting on MTV. Sort of. The network is airing catch-up specials on the three original Teen Mom stars.

A lot has happened since they first starred on 16 & Pregnant, for sure.

Stars of Teen Mom

One of the four women pictured above has become a full-on porn star.

One of them has done a year and a half of time in an Indiana prison.

One continues to have relationship issues with her fiance/stepbrother.

One does not have a catch-up special coming up for some reason.

No clue why Maci Bookout won't be joining Farrah Abraham, Amber Portwood, and Catelynn Lowell, but those three will each be featured Sunday night.

MTV will air three one-hour documentary specials back-to-back-to-back. They'll be called Being Farrah, Being Catelynn, and Being Amber, airing in that order.

They should've gone with Being Inside Farrah. Too much, maybe?

For more on that, follow the link for stills and the trailer for the newly-released Farrah Abraham sex tape sequel. Then relive the craziest Teen Mom moments below!

Some celebrity couples are made in heaven, making their fans believe in romance, passion and everlasting love even at the highest levels of fame and fortune.

Just not these ones. Like at all.

In celebration of Valentine's Day, many romantic duos will celebrate with flowers, gifts, meals, dates and public displays of affection. Nauseating, but cute.

These couples, on the other hand, are best known for fighting - in the media, in person and/or on TV - and breaking up a lot. Sometimes with police involved.

Hey, when you're a celebrity gossip site, you can't function without the dysfunctional, so at least they bring the entertainment value and then some, right?

Here are 14 truly toxic twosomes that never should've been a thing:

14 Toxic Couples We Can't Believe Were a Thing
Rihanna and Chris Brown dated for two decent chunks of time, the first of which ending after he beat her senseless. Never a good sign. Nor was taking him back after that, but she's moved on with Drake ... thank goodness. Good luck, Karrueche!

Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil

2. Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil

Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez

6. Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez had a long love affair that involved him taking her virginity and a whole lot of partying and frequent breakups, fights and general emotional turmoil. It's possible it wasn't meant to be. And by possible we mean obvious.


Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley

7. Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley

Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley of Teen Mom fame were fighting more often than not. Often, things even got physical between the on-off couple, and it was scary.

Jenelle Evans and Courtland Rogers

10. Jenelle Evans and Courtland Rogers

Jenelle Evans and Courtland Rogers, who are still technically married, were only together as a couple for a few months ... during which she aborted his baby and both were arrested for heroin possession and assault. They also feuded on Twitter a lot - even by her standards. Not healthy.


Britney Spears and Kevin Federline

11. Britney Spears and Kevin Federline

Britney Spears and Kevin Federline were married two years and had sex at least that many times, as evidenced by their two sons. How in the world did these two ever get married? Okay, we can grasp why K-Fed married her (see photo). Just not the reverse ...


Kim Kardashian and Ray J

12. Kim Kardashian and Ray J

Ray J hit it first, and he filmed it. The XXX-rated Kim Kardashian marked the end of the duo's relationship, though it catapulted her to fame, making it a net positive, we suppose. Ray then relased a song CALLED "I Hit it First," which is just hilarious.


Taylor Swift and Joe Jonas

13. Taylor Swift and Joe Jonas

Taylor Swift has had a lot of boyfriends and a lot of breakups. Joe Jonas is the only one to dispatch her via voicemail, however.


Farrah Abraham and James Deen

14. Farrah Abraham and James Deen

Okay, it was a fake relationship that she tried to pretend led to a leaked sex tape that was actually just a porno. But still, Farrah Abraham and James Deen simply DID NOT WORK as a couple.

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood is out of jail and sober now, but life is still rocky for the ex-convict, despite her best efforts to get things back to normal.

Portwood was hoping to regain joint custody of her daughter Leah, 4, but her ex, Gary Shirley has no plans of granting her joint custody anytime soon.

Shirley was granted full custody of Leah in 2011, when Amber Portwood was in the throes of drug addiction and battling anger management problems.

Portwood was sentenced to five years behind bars after choosing prison over drug court, but was released in November of 2013, after 17 months.

As a condition of her release, Portwood is on parole and will remain subject to random drug testing in order to monitor and maintain her recovery.

Shirley is not 100 percent confident she can do it, though.
