Amber's Ready for a Normal Life


Since being under house arrest we haven't heard much about Amber. She is the one and only "Teen Mom" that stays out of the social media so we don't get daily tweets like with the other cast members. Amber's brother Shawn has spoken out recently about Amber and the ending of Teen Mom.
“I am thrilled,” Shawn told TODAY.com. “I do not believe that the show should have survived more than a year or two at the most. I am happy that (the stars) actually have to pursue their lives now.”
Amber recently spent almost 2 months in jail and is currently out on probation and participating in an outpatient rehab program and is also fitted with an ankle bracelet to monitor her activity and whereabouts.
“She has been so busy doing other things... Amber has been getting up every day at 6 a.m. to go to the courthouse and submit drug screens and everything else. Amber physically has no time to worry about MTV.”
Shawn is happy to see the cast move on and get real, normal people jobs and deal with reality instead of reality TV.  “I am sure they will try to milk the television scene as much as possible,” Shawn said. 
“(Amber) is ready for a 9-to-5 (job) and hopefully she can get a little extra money on the side doing other things. It is time to get Amber out of the spotlight, which is what she has been trying to do since she has been out (of jail).”
It's good to hear that Amber is getting better and heading in the right direction, toward a normal life outside of reality fame.

  1. I wish Amber luck, but I will believe it when I see it. An addict often relapses - it is a hard disease to conquer. Add to that all of the additional stressors on Amber.. She chose to be on TV, but people that don't even know her will be challanging her, and reminding her of 'what a loser' she is. Most of us have enough stress without having random strangers yell things at you etc.

  2. Gary is posting on his twitter that Amber is a lesbian (not that it matters WHAT her sexual orientation is, I just think it is tacky that he posts these things at all!)
    They are posted in reverse order, but here are his tweets:

  3. Gary actually tires to take credit for 'turning her gay'. that is just sick!!! What is he trying to accomplish by posting these things? What business is it of his? And why out who Amber is supposively with?

    Gary should not be allowed to have a twitter account because he is too immature and ignorant to know what is acceptable to post. I can not believe he has a child in his care!

  4. I am 52 and have/had an in-family of two brother-in-laws and a father-in-law all who ended their lives due to drug and alcohol abuse/addicts. I really feel for anyone fighting this disease. No matter what age they are. I don't care about anyone says about her, no one but she knows what it's like to go through the illness.

    Who really cares about her sexual orientation? I know most of you are young and impressionable about that. But this is a gal with a lot of things that need to take place in her life before she can approach having a job and moving on.

  6. I'm sorry but those tweets about amber Gary posted is jus funny, I don't find it insulting just because Idgaf who she likes, guys or girls, because it changes nothing about her, or how she parents. Wish her all the best and hope she continues the way she does. I am happy teen mom will soon be over, teen mom 2 really jus began tho, feels like it anyways. Season three isn't even on yet and season 4 teen mom isn't even on yet and it will end... Still have another yr for teen mom 2 to see, season 4 supposedly still ya know?

  7. If Amber can get her life on track, than i say GOOD FOR HER. She may have been in the media a lot before, but she will probably the first one out of the media and living a normal life. I'm afraid we haven't see the last of a lot of these fame hungry people who would do ANYTHING to avoid getting real jobs, LOL.

  8. This kinda upsets me. Someone telling me if I am reading tok much into this, but I think her brother is an idiot. He says shes been trying to get out of the spot light, but I remember reading that she threw a fit when she was told she was gonna have to work a real job saying she cant support her child on that money. To me, hes trying to make her look great compared to the other girls. We all know Amber is a princess and wants it to be easy!

    1. Personally I do think the lack of MTV money scares her. I mean it would scare me if I was used to that lifestyle. I think if she applies herself she will be fine and right not Gary is supporting Leah so Amber just needs to focus on herself. And honestly you would be surprised which other ladies want easy money and are trying to milk teen mom.

  9. Why is Amber in rehab? Is she on dope or is it just her anger issue?
