This Amber Portwood situation keeps getting worse and worse.
Which is really saying something, because it was terrible from the very start.
You probably know thar Amber was arrested in July after allegedly assaultig her boyfriend, Andrew Glennon.
You probably also know about the shocking audio recordings, in which Amber can be heard beating and verbally abusing Glennon.
But did you know there was another victim in all this?
Well, there is -- and now, like so many others before her, she's taking Amber to court.
Check it out:
Amber's mugshot collection might not be as big as Jenelle Evans' but the woman is no stranger to police custody.
Amber has been arrested several times before, and she's even served hard time for her violent ways.
Not Her First Rodeo
So if anyone understands how the bail bond system works, it's Amber. But as we've seen in the past, knowing that she's doing wrong is not enough to prevent Portwood from carrying through with her actions.
Rather than going the traditional route and using her sizable fortune or taking out a loan to get out of jail, Amber took advantage of an old woman.
According to Starcasm, a woman named Rhonda put up $2,000 to get Portwood out of the clink after her July arrest. And of course, Amber never paid her back.
Help Me, Rhonda
So who is Rhonda? Well, she's 60 years old, and she has no apparent ties to Amber, which has led many to the conclusion that she's simply a fan of the show.
Yeah ... No
Rhonda submitted a hand-written note to the court asking for a refund of the money she spent on Amber. Unfortunately for her, that's not how bail bonds work.
“I, Rhonda [redacted] am requesting that the court release the bond to me due to the fact that the money that I paid for the bond was income that [is] owed to me from the Defendant, Amber Portwood,” Rhonda wrote.
Ya Know Who Doesn't Have Serious Financial Burdens? Amber!
“This bond posting has created a serious financial burden on my family and I am respectfully requesting that the bond be released to me immediately,” she wrote.
“I am currently unemployed and my husband is on short-term disability. We are facing disconnect issues on our electric and gas expenses and are without any other source of financial income," Rhonda continued.
"We are facing disconnect issues on our electric and gas expenses and are without any other source of financial income,” she conculded.
The Bad News
Obviously, Rhonda's request for a refund was denied by the court, and she'll be forced to go straight to Portwood if she wants a refund.
The Good News
Fortunately for her, Amber has NOT been fired from Teen Mom 2, which means she should have no trouble paying Rhonda back.
Yes, despite a veritable mountain of evidence that points to Amber's guilt, MTV has decided not to part ways with the OG Teen Mom.
Fair warning: The tapes in which Amber can be heard assaulting and threatening to murder Andrew are deeply disturbing.
The tapes may well land Amber behind bars -- but apparently, they're not enough to get her fired by MTV.
The Wrong Move
So yeah, clearly Rhonda bet on a losing horse in this situation.
The Con Artist
Still, we can't help but feel bad for her, as she's yet another one of Amber's victims.
Day In Court
It's unclear exactly when Amber will appear in front of a judge on assault charges, but the stakes for her upcoming trial couldn't be higher.
A Lot on the Line
In addition to being locked up, Portwood could lose custody of her son, James. On top of that, sources say MTV WILL fire her if she's found guilty.
Odd Woman Out
Unfortunately for Rhonda, it seems extremely unlikely that the court will force her to pay back a bail loan from some random stranger.
