Amber Portwood: Still in Rehab, Battling Weight Issues

by at . Comments

On this week's Teen Mom, we got a behind-the-scenes look at the life of Amber Portwood, which spiraled out of control and landed her in rehab this summer.

Well, she's still there, and for the first time since entering Seasons rehab facility in Malibu, Calif., the troubled star ventured out with a staffer the other day.

“They stopped at a Malibu Ralphs market and Starbucks,” a source says. “She looked happy, though her face is rather bloated, probably from the detox.”

Whatever the reasons for her puffiness, Amber Portwood is not happy. In fact, “She’s terrified of getting heavy again,” an insider says of the star.

“She’d lost a lot of weight through diet pills and her busy social life, but now she’s healthy and staying committed to staying substance free."

"Instead of partying she’s watching DVDs in her room. She wants to be healthy and get custody of her daughter, Leah, back," adds the source.

"But getting big again is a genuine fear.”

Body image and self-esteem issues can be serious. At least, if nothing else, she'll look tiny if Gary Shirley is in the same room as her. Just saying.
